Our Lord and Savior took our beloved Norman Krueger to be in Heaven with Him on March 4, 2020 at home surrounded by his loving family.
Norman was born November 3, 1940 to Edwin and Melda (Liebmann) Krueger. He was baptized and confirmed at Christus Lutheran Church in Clintonville and went to River Bank Grade School and graduated from Shawano High School in 1958. Norman took over the family farm until the boys took over for him.
On May 21, 1961 he married Jane Kriefall and they were blessed with four children: Susie Breutzmann and her significant other, Randy. JoAnn (Daniel) Renel. David (Brenda Hartwig) Krueger. Gerald (Marlow Dorner) Krueger.
7 Grandchildren, 3 step-grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and 2 step-great-grandchildren.
Norman is also survived by a sister Glorianne (Jerry) Kuschel, a sister-in-law, 4 brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, father-in-law and mother-in-law, and a sister.
The enjoyable part of his life was setting up the sawmill sawing logs and constructing the buildings from the lumber. Norm could fix anything and everything that was broke, and if it wasn’t broke he’d take it apart and see what made it work and put it back together again. He loved running the 1920 Avery tractor in parades, and truly enjoyed traveling with Jane throughout the United States and Canada; including 4 trips to Alaska. Norman was a huge outdoorsman and loved hunting, fishing, and just being in the woods. He enjoyed playing accordion, piano, and polka dancing with Jane. Working the family farm with family was never a chore. It was fun to him to be on the fields from dusk to dawn, and thanking the Lord for the rewards. Norm loved his Lord and family, and put all others before him. He instilled in his children to also love and put that trust in the Lord. We will surely miss him in our everyday living, and thank the Lord for blessing us with so many years together.
We also want to thank the doctors and nurses that took such wonderful care of him through the years, including hospice. They were there for us whenever we needed them.
Per Norman’s wishes no formal services will be held at this time but a gathering may be held at a later date. The Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory assisted his family. www.eberhardtstevenson.com
