"Among the best things we can give each other are good memories."|
JOHNSBURG – Margaret E. Breier, 85, of Johnsburg, was called home to our Lord on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, at her home.
She was born July 1, 1927, in Johnsburg, to John and Emma (Tonyan) Freund.
Before Johnsburg, Marge resided in Richmond for eight years, where she owned and operated the "Debbie Shop," a children's clothing store. Most of her working career centered on health care. She worked as a supervisor for the McHenry Medical Group and Centegra Health System in the billing and insurance areas for 35-plus years.
A member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Johnsburg, she also was a member of St. Agatha Court 777 National Catholic Society of Foresters for 65 years.
The loves of Marge's life were her grandchildren. Constant visiting and phone calls forever brought a smile to her face. An avid Chicago Cubs and Bears fan, she was always watching her favorite teams.
Survivors include two children, William (Patricia) Foley of Wonder Lake and Deborah (Timothy) Prostko of Louisville, Ky.; four grandchildren, Robert (Nicole) Prostko, Catherine Prostko, Willliam C. Foley and Marissa Foley; and two sisters, Rosemary Young and Mary Draper.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands, William C. Foley in 1955 and Robert G. Breier on Nov. 18, 1999; five brothers, Leo, Wilfred, Walter, Leonard and Eugene Freund; and a sister, Helen Thompson.
