Allene C Ramirez, age 64, passed away suddenly at her home surrounded by loving family in Elgin, Illinois. She was born November 22, 1949 in Chicago, Illinois.
Allene was a loving wife and mother who was beloved by all who knew her. Allene put everyone’s needs ahead of her own and had a generous, giving spirit. She was an amazing baker, known for her butter cookies and tarts which earned her the nick name “Cookie.” She was the kitchen gadget guru, creative in the kitchen. Allene had a laugh that would fill a room, often laughing with her family and friends at her own corny, confused sense of humor. Allene worked for many years taking photos for the real estate industry and became the self-proclaimed family photographer. She loved to travel with her husband to California every year visiting family.
She is survived by her loving husband Evans, daughers Toni, Melanie (Fiance Brent Somppi) Ramirez, spiritual daughter Juanita Nichole Rivas, sisters Virginia (James) Dobson, Diane McNamara, and Brothers Leroy (Pam) Koehler, Fred (Kathy) Koehler.
She is preceded in death by her mother Bertha Roest, sister Audrey Gussy, grandmother and grandfather, Emma and Hans Schulmeister.
