Frances Mathilda (nee Ilg) Mueller
January 30, 1931 – August 9, 2023
The peaceful death of Frances Mathilda (nee Ilg) Mueller of Humboldt, SK, occurred at Humboldt District Hospital on Wednesday, August 9, 2023. She was 92 years of age. Frances was born on January 30, 1931, to Hubert and Mathilda (nee Kirschner) Ilg at home on their farm in the Willmont/Pilger district. She grew up there and attended school in the area. On June 15, 1948, Frances married Ralph Mueller in Canadian Martyrs Roman Catholic Church, Middle Lake, SK. Together, they ran a mixed farm operation beside Lenore Lake, and raised a family of five, two sons and three daughters. In 1980, Frances and Ralph sold the farm and moved to Humboldt. Ralph passed away on February 20, 2005. Frances continued to live in their home. Over the years, she enjoyed gardening, tending to her flowers, doing puzzles, playing computer games, watching the cars and the people she called her “street friends” go by, cruising around on her scooter, and in earlier years, going for coffee at McDonald’s. She appreciated and loved all her Home Care family. Her greatest joy was derived from time spent with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Frances will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by three children, 13 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren: (†Glen’s family), daughter-in-law Violet Mueller and family, Fawn (Dean) Perry of Martensville, SK, and children Rayne Perry, Bazil Perry, and Ashlee (Keenan) Redl and their children, Hayley Redl and Logan Redl of Saskatoon, SK, Rolanda (Vincent) McAvoy and children, Chase McAvoy and Brooke McAvoy, all of Saskatoon, and Marty (Katherine) Mueller and children Ryder Mueller and Oakley Mueller, all of Revelstoke, BC; (†Dianne’s family), son-in-law Wilfred Mueller of Saskatoon, SK, and family, Tammy Mueller (Dave Yungmann) of Saskatoon, SK, and son Daegan Engele (Kaycie Perlett) and their son Daxtyn Engele, all of Humboldt, SK; Lorna (Darryl) Sarauer of Humboldt and family, Joelene (Matthew) Linner and son Winston Linner, all of Saskatoon, Amanda (Paul) Titman and children, Lucas Titman, William Titman, and Arie Anna Titman, all of Saskatoon, SK, Dawn Bergermann and family, Ashtyn Bergermann and Sierra Bergermann, all of Humboldt, SK, Lindsay Sarauer (Brent Lanfermann) of Lloydminster, AB, and Ryan Sarauer of Saskatoon, SK; Terry Mueller of Humboldt, SK, and family Shawn Mueller and children Ronan Mueller and Lennon Mueller, all of Humboldt, SK, and Colby Mueller (Melissa Letourneau) of Airdrie, AB; and Lisa (Wayne) Schroeder and family, Katelin Schroeder (Niklas Jacob), and Ryker Schroeder (Katelin Henri), all of Calgary, AB.
