Sandra “Sandy” R. Krueger, age 77 of Marion, passed away early Thursday morning September 16, 2021 at her home surrounded by family.
Sandra “Sandy” Rae Krueger was born January 22, 1944 in Clintonville, WI, daughter to the late Clarence “Butch” & Elsie (Schlender) Schmidt. She attended Marion schools where, at 14 years old, met Larry Krueger; her high school sweetheart and future husband. Sandy and Larry were united in marriage on October 14, 1961 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Marion. She worked locally around the Marion area, at the bakery, Lee’s Market, and a wood shop. In 1972, Sandy started work for Marion Plywood, where she was proud to have been able to perform any of the different production processes around the plant. She retired in 2005 after 33 years of service. As a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Sandy taught Sunday school, helped with the food pantry, participated in Bible class, and served on both church council and the funeral committee. She really enjoyed embroidery and watching the hummingbirds in her yard. When she wasn’t working to keep her yard and garden trimmed and tended, Sandy enjoyed being social and visiting with friends and family. She will be remembered for her ability to be honest and forthright in conversation, as well as the love she had for her family and close friends.
Sandy is survived by her children: Jackie Krueger, Gays Mills, WI & Terry Krueger, Marion, WI
Brother: Clarence “Butch” (Sue) Schmidt Jr., Appleton, WI
Sandy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Larry “Peeker” Krueger; and a sister, Connie Johnson.
