Madeline R. Kroll was unexpectedly received into the Lord’s arms on Saturday October 17, 2020. Madeline (Mel) was born on October 11, 1940 to Dave and Juanita Lujan.
Mel fell in love and married Raymond Kroll on August 8th, 1958. They were a match made in heaven! Ray loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing and Mel would always be right by his side. Ray would catch all the fish and Mel would fillet them. They truly made the best team and were always up for an adventure! Mel and Ray were married 62 years and were always there for each other.
Mel had an unforgettable personality and filled the hearts of those around her with so much joy, laughter and love. She loved getting dressed up, especially on the holidays. She found such joy in making her grandchildren and great grandchildren smile. She lived to see the twinkle in their eyes as she walked through the doors wearing Easter bunny ears, Halloween costumes to Mrs. Claus Christmas sparkles. She always wore the perfect shade of lipstick and had sparkling accessories to match every outfit. Mel loved a good bargain and was always on the prowl to bring those she loved a special surprise. You could count on every card she sent or hand delivered to be lined with stickers and sealed with a lipstick smudged kiss. She was so intentional and through her acts of love one could see how deeply she loved her family.
Much grief lingers, because of her absence but there are treasured memories that line the hearts of many that nobody can take. Mel will truly be missed for so many reasons that words alone fall short to express, but her friends and family celebrate the impactful life she lived here on earth.
Mel is survived by her husband Raymond Kroll, Son Richard (Mercedes) Kroll, granddaughter Savanna (PJ) Frazier, great grandchildren Crit and Titan Frazier, granddaughter Ashley (fiancé Jason McElroy) Kroll, grandson Deforest (Derek) Rhinehart, sister Linda (Gary) Rippley, brother Benny Lujan and brother Thomas Lujan.
Mel is preceded in death by her parents Dave & Juanita Lujan, brother Butch Lujan, brother Raymond Lujan and sister Pat Lujan.
