Mildred Pearl Foege


Mildred P. Foege – Obituary

Mildred P Foege was born in Elgin, Illinois on December 17, 1914, and she passed away peacefully at home on May 27, 2013 in Glendale, Arizona.  She graduated high school in Elgin, Illinois. She married Alfred Foege and they moved to Roselle, Illinois and bought a turkey farm and raised corn.  After running the farm for eight years they sold the farm and moved to River Forest, Illinois and bought twelve condominiums.  After her divorce in 1967 she moved to Northlake, Illinois and bought a duplex.  She then moved to Arizona in 1981 with her daughter when she retired from Mercury Metal Corporation in Schaumburg, Illinois.

She is survived by her Daughter Rosemary Klamp and her son Jerome Foege.  Her grandchildren; Jeffrey Foege, Jimmy Foege, Joseph Foege, JoAnne Farley and Raymond Klamp Jr.   Four great grandchildren; Brittanie Harrington, Jordan Deskins, Tyler Deskins and Matt Deskins.  Four great-great grandchildren; Brayden Harrington, Miylee Herrera, Madisyn Vasquez and Mercedez Vasquez.

She loved the warm weather.  She was a member of Christ the Redeemer Church in Phoenix, Arizona.  She loved life and was very easy going and everyone loved her. She was a fan of Lawrence Welk and Wayne Newton. She was blessed to never having had any surgeries.  Her favorite pastime was playing cards. She loved animals and kids. She joined TOPS to lose weight and had a lot of fun with all her friends, who all passed away many years before her.  She was an avid supportive of Jerry Lewis for Muscular Dystrophy and Easter Seals.

She will be greatly missed by her entire family who enjoyed her love for life and joy for 98 and a half years.

Arrangements were made with Best Funeral Services in Peoria, Arizona and she will be buried at Bluff City Cemetery in Elgin, Illinois along by her son Eugene Foege and her parents Rose Behm and Jerome Mockler.  She did not want a memorial service but just wanted to be remembered as she was when she was alive in all of our memories.

  1. Rosemary Klamp says:

    Mom was my rock and my inspiration all my life. She will definitely be missed by everyone who knew her. She will not be forgotten and will always be in her hearts.

    She accomplished a lot in her 98 and a half years and seen things we will never know. She often talked about the great depression.

    Her infamous word of Bunk when things did not go her way will always be in my mind when things dont go my way.
