Madison - Eleanor Dorothy Kramer, 82, of Madison, Wisconsin died on Saturday, April 6, 2019 in Verona, Wisconsin. "Ele" Kramer's smile lit up her eyes and brightened her whole face. Her creativity was legendary in her first and second grade classrooms, and in Sunday school. Most of all, her faith in God was strong and sustained her throughout her life.

Ele is survived by her daughter Beth Kramer-Simpson, and her brother the Rev. Raymond D. Field.

Ele was preceded in death by her husband Bob Kramer and her older brother Stanley R. Field.
A memorial service is planned for 1 pm Saturday May 18th 2019 at First United Methodist church. The service will be held in Fellowship Hall.

Memorial contributions may be given to First United Methodist Church and its ministries to which Bob and Ele devoted so much of their lives.

Dear Beth
The Von Hadens will always remember Elle, Bob and you Beth. So many memories from First Church. We send our deepest condolences to you and your family. I would have been at the funeral service at church but I was out of town with our daughter Kristin's family and didn't get back in time. I so wanted to be there for you and give you an endearing hug. I hope you and your husband are doing well and if you ever get back to Madison you should plan to stop by. We still reside where we have always been. Sending warm thoughts and hugs. Blessings, Jan Von Haden

I remember Ele from her time in leadership groups at First UMC, and Bob's steady presence, ready smile, and helping hands. We are now in Wash. DC, but send our prayers and remembrance to Beth and the family.
