Gussie Mueller, age 88, a longtime resident of Chicago, IL, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2018 at Alden Courts of Shorewood. She was born on June 28, 1929 in Yugoslavia.

Gussie is survived by her loving daughter, Barbara Durso of Chicago, IL; her dear sister, Paula Kirstein of Plainfield, IL; her dear nephew, Rudolph Buchreiter and niece, Marie (the late Frank) Buchreiter. She was preceded in death in by her devoted husband of 31 years, Wendelin Mueller in 1988; her son, Peter Wendelin Mueller; her parents, Rudolph and Josephine Erker; her sisters, Rosalie Buchreiter and Olga Lackner; and her nephew Frank Buchreiter.

Gussie spent her childhood and early adulthood years in Europe. She immigrated to the United States in 1952. She met the love of her life, Wendelin Mueller, and they were married in 1957. Throughout her life Gussie loved to be outdoors tending to her flowers and enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. She also had a deep admiration for all animals and loved her poodles. A strong and independent woman, Gussie never complained about the challenges she encountered and lived her life to the fullest. She will be deeply missed by her family and her memory will live in their hearts forever.
