Loa Ann was a hard-working person throughout her life. While helping Harvey run their farm, she also made time to work at the Chilton Care Center For 19 years. She was a great wife, mother, and grandmother, and she always found time to babysit for anyone that needed it. She tried to mend anything that needed it, whether it was hers or someone else’s. She was a phenomenal cook and anyone coming to her house was fed. She was a good friend to many people and always put others before herself. She was a devout Christian and member at Trinity Lutheran in Rantoul. 

Loa Ann is survived by her daughters: Julie (Bill) Kocourek and Lori Monroe (special friend, John Sheridan); three grandchildren: BreeAnn (fiancé, Zach Westcott), Jordan, and Eli; sisters-in-law: Eileen (Glenn) Beers, Joan Schmidt, and LaVerne Schmidt; brother-in-law: Richard (Audrey) Schmidt; a special four-legged friend: Tucker; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

A funeral service is set for 11:30am on Tuesday, August 18, at Trinity Lutheran Church (N6080 W. River Rd.) in Rantoul with Pastor Mark Wilkens officiating. Friends may call at the church from 9:00am until 11:15am on the day of service. A committal service will take place at the Trinity Cemetery following the funeral service. 

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Thedacare Regional Medical Center, and the staff that took care of Loa Ann, especially Dr. Augelli and Nurse Roger. They would also like to thank Pastor Wilkens for his kindness and support.

I remember Loa Ann from 4-H days. Was always smiling and kind and helpful. Our sympathy to Julie and Bill who are neighbors and the rest of Loa Ann's family.

I worked with Loa Ann at the nursing home. She was always a good time - my favorite memory was she hid in a supply closet and jumped out at me when I opened the door - I screamed she laughed I think all day.

My deepest sympathies to the family. I had only known Loa Ann for a few months and I can say that you do not see people like her. My 9 year old daughter had met her the first week in April when I moved in and considered her a grandma right off the moment they had meet. She was so sweet, kind, passionate and had a great sense of humor. One of the other neighbors and our kids were going to have a Nerf Gun war, kinda joking around I had asked if she wanted to play and she was all in for it, I had about fallen over because you could see it in her eyes she wanted to She will definitely be missed by all that knew her. I will miss the conversations in the garage we had. I learned so many things about her and felt that I had known her for years. That is a quality that you do not see much. The comfort I find in her passing is that she no longer has to worry about her health, which she did but did not show it and that she is with our father and watching down on us all. We will miss you Loa Ann. You will be in thoughts and hearts forever.

My heartfelt sympathy to the family. She always shared with joy, plans of spending time with her girls, and grandchildren, and laughing about having to pick up some cheese. It was obvious that her family was her greatest treasure. She will be missed for her sweet, gentle spirit, and beautiful smile.
