Krueger, Augusta (Winkel) (June 12, 1855 - April 15, 1925)
One of the lamented deaths, of last week, was that of Mrs. Augusta Krueger, which occurred at her home in Green Grove on Wednesday, April 15th.
Relatives and friends were deeply grieved 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 stoke which resulted in her death. However, we are never prepared for death and the family and friends were unprepared for Mrs. Krueger’s passing away.
Augusta Krueger, nee Winkel, was born at Howard’s Grove, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, June 12th, 1855, and there grew to womanhood. In 1873, she was joined in holy matrimony with Mr. Carl Krueger at Howards 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 they since resided.
To this 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 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 Zieger of Milwaukee, Mrs. Louise Cole of Waukesha, Mrs. Minnie Baumgartner of Waukesha, Albert Krueger of Waukesha, Otto Krueger of Colby, Carl Krueger, Jr., Wm. Krueger, Hugo Krueger, Fred Krueger, Henry Krueger, and Mrs. Gusta Kobs all of Green Grove, and thirty-one grandchildren, She also leaves four brothers and five sister.
The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon at 1:00 o’clock from the home and at 2:00 o’clock 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, Howards Grove, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Perronne, Howards Grove, Mrs. Mary Klueger, Sheboygan, Mr. and Mrs. Zieger and sons, Edwin and Henry, Milwaukee, Mrs. and Mrs. Louis Cole, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Krueger, and Mrs. Ernest Baumgartner of Waukesha.
