Marjorie E. ‘Maggie’ Gross, 68, Streamwood, IL, passed away unexpectedly Monday, May 11, 2020, from natural causes at her home. She was born October 14, 1951, in Peoria, IL to the late Wayne P. and Ada (Hostetler) Gross. Maggie graduated from Lowpoint -Washburn High School in Washburn, IL and Barnes Hospital School of Nursing in St. Louis, MO. After earning her RN degree, she worked for Maple Lawn Homes in Eureka, IL. She then moved to Chattanooga, TN and worked in a hospital there. On return to Peoria, she was employed at Saint Frances Hospital, first working in the newborn nursery and then the NICU. In the early 1990’s, she moved to the Chicago area. There she worked for Marklund and later for home health agencies doing pediatric care. Regretfully, she retired from that work several years ago due to health issues.

Maggie loved her work and went the extra mile to give loving, competent care. She loved the companionship of her canine pets through the years. Always adopting from a rescue shelter, Maggie recently had older dogs and wanted to give them “the best years of their lives”. Her dream was to do bereavement counseling for those who have lost pets.

Preceding her in death, besides her parents, are a niece, Bonnie Ramer, sister-in-law Carol (Altes) Gross, and numerous canine companions. Maggie dearly loved her family and friends. Surviving are her brother John, Eureka, IL and sister Luanne (Steve) Ramer of Nappanee, IN. Also surviving are one great aunt, two nephews, four nieces, three grand-nephews, three grand-nieces and numerous cousins and friends. Her family wishes to thank her close friends, neighbors and cousins who gave her assistance in her latter days.

Due to COVID 19, there will be no services at this time. On line condolences and memories may be sent to Memorial contributions may be made to your local animal shelter.

I just found out that Maggie padded away. I worked with her in home care back in 2004 or 5 and we stayed friends. I actually just found out tonight that she has passed away. I've been trying to reach her since January and a fellow nurse contacted me with the news. My heart is heavy and I wish I had seen her once more. She was so loved by my family and mutual friends. God bless her always.

I worked with Maggie as her clinical supervisor at Aveanna Healthcare. She worked in the homes of medically fragile children who required highly skilled care. Maggie showed compassion in all ways possible to her patients and their families. Always, going above and beyond to pick up extra shifts when the family needed her, always putting her patients needs first. She was truly dedicated to her patients for many years. Her laugh and smile would brighten my day. I always looked forward to seeing her on duty at her patient's bedside. She loved the social interaction and providing 1:1 patient care. She was a student of life, always seeking out new education, new ways to improve patient care and contemplating new challenges. We would discuss her embracing a new career path later in life that would help people deal with grief after losing a pet. She showed her love and generosity by adopting senior dogs in order to provide them a better quality of life. She was always thinking of others. Maggie, thank you for your trusting relationship and the discussions we had about healthcare, family and life. During our professional time together you always remembered me and my family. You gave me support and appreciation. Thank you!
I will miss you my friend, Christine Galick.

Marjorie was a wonderful childhood friend since first grade. We always loved riding our bikes from town to their home in the country. When my children were born, Marjorie worked in the hospital nursery, and cheerfully brought them to me for feeding. It was always a joy to see her, and I will always remember our nice long conversation on the phone, while we were planning our 50th class reunion. Marjorie was a rare and special person, filled with love and the Holy Spirit.
