Sue Galler, loving wife, mother, sister, aunt & friend. Passed away at home in the arms of her family, and into the arms of her Savior, on October 30th.

She was born to John & Arlene Cromien in Galva, Illinois on April 26, 1962.  She first met her husband, Greg, while attending Western Illinois University on August 25, 1982.  After earning an M.S. degree, with High Honors, in psychology in 1984, she and Greg moved to the Twin Cities.  Sue & Greg were married on August 16, 1986 at St. John’s Catholic Church in Galva.  They began their family with a daughter, Katie, in 1989.  Who was later joined by her brother, Mike in 1993.

Sue is survived by her devoted husband, Greg, her daughter Katherine (and husband, D.J.) Yokom, son Michael Galler, her brothers, Gary & Dennis Cromien, and numerous nieces, and nephews - all of whom she held dear.  She is preceded in death by her parents.

Sue was passionate about her faith in Jesus as her Savior and in helping others wherever she could.  She served as an advisor to international students at St. Croix Lutheran Academy.  She was loved for her devotion to the well-being of the hundreds of children from all over the world that she came to know and care for.

Sue was as beautiful inside as she was outside.  She was a High School Homecoming Queen, Henry County Illinois Fair Queen, and Co-Captain of the Western Illinois University Wrangler Pom-Pom Squad.  Her smile and laugh were infectious.  She had the most beautiful eyes anyone had ever seen.

She was a gracious and virtuous wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend.  With God-given wisdom she taught and guided us.  With laughter, compassion, and strength she made each day a celebration of living.  Through good times and hardships she reminded us to look to God for strength.

She was love in motion - and with a sweet, gentle, dignified, and humble spirit, she was our close and trusted friend.  She was loved and cherished by all who knew her.

“Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”

-Proverbs 31:28
