Carole J. Kronzer, 68, longtime nurse in Howard

December 28, 2003

Carole Jeanne Kronzer, a longtime nurse at Howard County General Hospital, died Monday at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, Va., of a neurological disease. She was 68.

At the Howard County hospital, she was a nurse in the emergency room, during surgeries and on the psychiatric floor. Working in its quality-assurance department, she recovered millions of dollars in unpaid bills, said a daughter, Elizabeth McConville of Eldersburg.

Born Carole Weyenberg in Little Chute, Wis., she was raised in Wisconsin, where she graduated in 1956 from the Mercy Hospital School of Nursing in Oshkosh.

Also in 1956, she married Joseph Kronzer, a retired naval commander. They moved around the country as the Navy posted her submariner husband, a graduate of the Naval Academy, at different duty stations.

About 20 years ago, the family settled in Maryland. They lived in Ellicott City, Woodbine and, for the past 15 years, in Columbia.

Recently, the couple retired to a cottage on Lake Anna in Mineral, Va.

A memorial service will be held next month at the Naval Academy.

In addition to her daughter and husband, she is survived by a son, Michael Kronzer of Landenberg, Pa.; another daughter, Marley Williams of Longmeadow, Mass.; three sisters, Shirley Schuh of Appleton, Wis., Nancy Ourada of Wild Rose, Wis., and Lynn Verhagen of Appleton, Wis.; and eight grandchildren.
