Amy C. Krajewski, born Jan. 14, 1960 in Cincinnati, OH, a resident of Third Lake, died unexpectedly on Feb. 5, 2013.
Amy was the beloved wife of 30 years to Cliff Krajewski, and mother of Natalie, Christian and Daniel. Immediate family includes her sister Lisa Sutherlin (Steve), and brother Rex Carroll (Ruth). She was the daughter-in-law of John and Delores Krajewski, and sister-in-law of Casey Krajewski (Vilja) and Paul Krajewski.
Amy was a loving, devoted and caring mother to her family, and active in the Wildwood Presbyterian Church and Wagging Hearts, a pet adoption agency. Outdoor photography was her passion. Amy attended Southern Illinois University before joining Nissan Motors Acceptance, Oklahoma City, OK. After moving to Third Lake, Amy worked with Baxter V. Mueller, Niles; EndoPlus, Niles; MacClean-Fogg, Vernon Hills; One Hope United, Lake Villa; and most recently Table Craft, Gurnee. Her very most important job, the one to which she was most dedicated, was raising three beautiful and talented children. This alone gave her Super Hero status in the eyes of her children and those of her husband. She started Amy Krajewski Photography in 1993 and truly enjoyed working with families and sports teams. She was always on the field or court making sure each participant’s photo was captured and available for their enjoyment at the conclusion of each season. Although she said this was a job, it was her passion, and her way of giving back to the community. A memorial visitation is scheduled for Saturday Feb. 16, 2013 from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. with a memorial service commencing at 4:30 p.m. at Wildwood Presbyterian Church 18630 W. Old Gages Lake Road, Grayslake. In lieu of flowers, contributions are suggested to Wagging Hearts, 260 E. Belvidere Road Box 360, Hainesville, IL 60030. Arrangements were entrusted to Strang Funeral Chapel & Crematorium. Friends may sign the on-line guestbook at www.strangfuneral.org.
