Marilyn and her husband John were long-time and dear friends of my parents, Phil and Nancy. As families, we enjoyed many breakfasts, lunches and hikes at state parks. We even had the great pleasure of vacationing together at Lake of the Woods in Ontario, Canada. What I remember and appreciate most about Marilyn was her wonderful laugh! She would join the "Homemakers Club" with my mom and others at our house. We children were not allowed downstairs during that time. My siblings and I would listen at the floor register for that fabulous laugh and wonder what could be so funny?! Love and sympathy to Elizabeth, Stephen, Teresa, Eric, Gavin and Garrett.

Marilyn was my Mom, Nancy Stenger's, dear friend for all of my life and before. I can picture the two of them talking for hours (at least it seemed to me) and I was usually gently sent on my way at those times. Mom would say: "You like to have time to talk to your friends....I like to have time to talk to mine." Now as an adult, I can imagine the many and varied topics those two women covered as they nurtured their marriages, raised children, managed careers, and grew older together, both before and after losing their husbands and their health. What an example of the importance and blessing of deep friendship. In an interesting twist, Marilyn....I mean Mrs. Krueger...was also my 3rd grade teacher. She was insistent that children needed physical activity during the day. That meant mandatory class kickball games when weather allowed...and disco dancing in the back of the classroom to records we were allowed to bring to school during cold winter days!! I remember Boston Terriers at their house and many Sunday picnics together at State Parks. I am so sorry for your loss. While I did not have the benefit of continuing to interact with her in her later years, I will remember her fondly. I cannot help but imagine Marilyn and Nancy spending some time together again now.
