Alberta Frintner, nee Ilg


Alberta Frintner, nee Ilg, age 86, of LaGrange Park, formerly of Brookfield and Fontana, WI. Beloved wife of the late Edward William Frintner, III; loving mother of Linda (Dean) Cada, Judy Frintner, Sharon (Paul) Ranieri, Steven (Mary) Frintner, David (Mary Pat) Frintner and Joan Timberlake; devoted grandmother of Kellene (Matthew) O’Connell, Katie (Jeff) Thiede, DeeDee (Jim Croke) Cada, Adam (Michelle) Kranz, Daniel Ranieri, Reese and Jack Timberlake, Michael, Megan, Sean, Nathaniel and Carly Frintner; great-grandmother of Brady O’Connell, August Thiede, Blake Kranz and Quinn O’Connell; sister of the late William (the late Ann) Ilg and the late Victor (Josephine) Ilg; aunt of many nieces and nephews.

Bert, as she was know to family and friends, resided in Brookfield for more than 40 years.  She loved the village, participating in special events and rarely missing the July 4th parade. She worked at First National Bank of Brookfield for more than 20 years.  It was the perfect job as it allowed her to talk to people all day long.  There was always a line in front of her teller window, as people not only came to take care of their financial business, but also to share their recent accomplishments, additions to family and difficult times.  She had a smile and comforting words for everyone.

Upon retirement, Bert and Ed fulfilled a life long dream of moving to their home in Fontana, WI on Lake Geneva, although retirement was short lived for Bert.  After one month, she started working part time at the local bank.  When asked why, Bert indicated it was a good way to meet all the people in town.  But she still had time for fun with family and friends.  All her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren can recall their favorite stories of being at “the lake”. 

One of Bert’s favorite past times was shopping sales.  She loved going to garage sales and second hand stores, and couldn’t wait to get home to share what  great deals she was able to find.  She was kind, loving and generous to a fault.  She would give anyone her last dollar if they needed it.  She knew more trivial facts than any person on earth, which will continue to provide years of humorous memories for her family.

Due to the current Covid-19 Precautions, a private Funeral Mass will take place at St. John of the Cross Church, Western Springs.
