Krueger, Augusta (12 JUN 1855 - 15 Apr 1925)

One of the lamented deaths of the last week was that of Mrs. Augusta Krueger, which occurred at her home in Green Grove, Clark County, Wis. on Wednesday, April 15, 1925.

Relatives and friends were deeply grived to hear of her passing, she having been in fairly good health until about a week previous to her death. On April 14th she suffered a heart stroke which resulted in her death. However, we are never prepared for death and the family and friends were unprepared for Mrs. Krueger's passing.

Augusta Krueger, nee Winkel, was born at Howard's Grove, Sheboygan, Co., Wis., June 12, 1855, and there grew to womanhood. In 1873 she was joined in holy matrimony with Mr. Carl Krueger at Howard's Grove, Wis., where they remained until the following year, when they moved to Unity, Wis., where they lived three years. They then moved to Green Grove, where she has since resided.

Tot his union fifteen children were born, ten boys and five girls. Four children preceded her in death.

The Krueger family lived in Green Grove for fifty-two years, and were kind and obliging neighbors and good friends. Mr. Krueger preceded her in death some six years ago. Since then she has made her home with her youngest son, Henry.

She was a devoted wife and mother, and the many beautiful floral offerings gave testimony of the affection and esteem in which she was held by the family and friends.

Eleven children mourn her sudden departure, namely: Mrs. Lena Zeiger of Milwaukee, Mrs. Louise Cole of Waukesha, Mrs. Minnie Baumgartner of Waukesha, Albert Krueger of Waukesha, Otto Krueger, Colby, Carl Krueger, Jr., Wm. Krueger, Hug Krueger, Fred Krueger, Henry Krueger and Mrs. Gusta Kobs, all of Green Grove, and thirty-one grandchildren. She also leaves four brothers and five sisters.

The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon at 1:00 from the home and at 2:00 at the Lutheran Church at Green Grove, Rev. Goetsch officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the family lot in the Green Grove Cemetery. Those from out of town who attended the funeral were: Herman Winkel, Meeme, Fred Winkel, Schleswig, Gustave Winkel, Howard's Grove, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Perronne, Howard's Grove, Mrs. Mary Klueger, Sheboygan, Mr. and Mrs. Zeiger and sons, Edwin and Henry, Milwaukee, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Cole, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Krueger, and Mrs. Ernest Baumgartner, all of Waukesha.
