Ann (Spuehler) Kohl, 85

Ann (Spuehler) Kohl, 85, passed away on Nov 9, 2020 in Schaumburg, Ill.

Ann was born Oct. 13, 1935, in Chicago, Ill., to the late Ernst Spuehler and Elizabeth Walser.

She was married to Lou Kohl in 1954 and lived in Palatine, Ill., where they raised their family. Ann was a manager at the Mount Prospect Bank as well as being a homemaker. Ann and Lou moved to Woodstock, Ill., in the 1980s and enjoyed their long-time home together until Lou passed away in 2007.

Ann was an avid gardener, artist, competitive tennis player, and an excellent cook. Her cookie-baking skills will be sorely missed. She was a caring friend with a kind word for all.

Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Ernst Spuehler and stepmother Ruth Spuehler, and brothers and sisters, Henry, Marion, Phyllis, and Rose.

She is survived by her children, Dr. Jan (Ron) Kirschbaum of Raleigh, N.C., and Kenneth (Ellen) Kohl of Denver, Colo., and her brother, Donald Spuehler, of Los Angeles.

A celebration of life will be scheduled in 2021 in the Chicago area. Donations may be made to the Friends of the Woodstock Opera House or The Food Bank of Northern Illinois.
