Anna Burg, 103, a former longtime resident of Mayslake Village, Oak Brook, passed away September 22, 2020.
Anna was born in Yugoslavia in 1917. She spent many years as a housekeeper for the Catholic priests.
Anna was always working and making beautiful things such as crochet angels, baby blankets and scrubbies for the Mayslake Village Bazaar. However, she was best known for her cookies, which eventually earned her her own “cookie corner” at the bazaar. She was always caring for others. She gave love every day and those who knew her were blessed to have her in their lives.
Anna was preceded in death by her nephew, Nick Bogner.
She is survived by her nephew, Peter (Marilyn) Bogner; and her great-nieces and -nephews, Peter II, Kathryn Bogner and John, Walter, Herbert and Greta Bogner.
A graveside service was held Sept. 25 at St. Joseph Cemetery in Wilmette.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Amita Alexian Brothers Hospice, Attn: Joanne Retondo, 901 Martha Ct., Elk Grove Village, IL 60007.
Brian Powell Funeral Directors of Hinsdale handled the arrangements.
