Linda Kraemer Obituary

Linda L. Kraemer, age 81 of the Township of Belle Plaine, Shawano County, passed away on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 at her home.

Linda Lee Kraemer was born November 3, 1942 in Evanston, IL daughter to the late Roy & Mary Jane (McMullen) Johnson. She was united in marriage to John R. Kraemer on July 20, 1963 in Park Ridge, IL. In 1984, the couple along with their daughter Deb, moved to the home on Pine Lake, which was owned by the family for many years. They started a carpet business locally, and Linda later started work as a secretary at the Shawano Chamber of Commerce in the late 1980s. Over the past few years, Linda discovered a deep relationship with Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior through the teaching and beautiful friendships at Zion Lutheran Church, Embarrass and New Hope Church, Shawano. As a member of Zion Lutheran, Linda was active with the Ladies Aid, and many other groups ready to serve the church’s ministry. Linda loved the Lord with her whole heart and served Him well through the years of caring for her husband, daughter, and mother-in-law, Ruth Kraemer Bell. She loved her Red Hats and the many friends around the lake and beyond. She was bubbly and talkative; and loved to be social and visit with friends, whether it was at church or entertaining guests in her home. She cherished her neighbors on Pine Lake, and if she ever encountered a stranger, she’d get to know them without fail. She embraced Facebook and enjoyed keeping up with her friends and family who lived far away. Her love of gardening kept her busy tending to her beautiful flowers and fresh vegetables in her large garden. She also loved to bake; known for her zucchini bread, and made delicious fudge at Christmas time. One of her favorite things to do was just to sit and enjoy God’s creation at her home on the shore. 

Linda is survived by her:
Daughter: Deb L. Olson
Granddaughter: Lexie J. Olson
Brother: Peter Johnson
Brother-in-law: David (Dottie) Kraemer

Linda was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John; and a sister, Joanne Johnson.
