 Kathryn G. Krogh, 75, of Elgin passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at home. She was born on February 15, 1944 in Elgin, IL the daughter of Lyman and Grace Marquis. She was a lifelong resident of Elgin. She worked as a crossing guard and a cafeteria worker at Highland Elementary School and she was a room mother at Highland Elementary School for nearly 40 years between 1966 and 2006 for her four children and two of her grandchildren. She was spectacular at crafts and sewing and was highly creative. She was well-known for her handmade, award-winning Halloween costumes and also for her love of decorating for both Halloween and Christmas. In the 1980’s, she had a business called “Kathy’s Kids” where she specialized in sewing custom clothing for Cabbage Patch Kid dolls. No order was too large or too small, too simple or too intricate – she was able to take on any request. She coached her girls’ softball teams (Gasthaus Zur Linde and The Grasshoppers) and was a Girl Scout Leader and Camp Fire Girls leader for many years. She worked many jobs, but raising her children was always her top priority and her grandchildren were her heart. She is survived by her husband Kenneth Krogh whom she married on December 31, 1960, her four daughters: Kim Mocha, Karol Krogh, Karyn Rose and Kelly (Nick) Paleocrassas and her five grandchildren: Mac, Sam, Stamatis, Katerina & Daphne, and her brother Tom Marquis, as well as many cousins, nephews, and nieces. She was preceded in death by her son Kenneth R. Krogh Jr., her parents Lyman & Grace Marquis and her two sisters Pat Robbins and Peg Gowran. Funeral Services will be held on Monday, March 11th at Laird Funeral Home, 310 S. State Street, Elgin, IL. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 pm with services following at Laird from 7 to 8 pm
