Donna R. Krueger
Donna Rae Krueger, 72, of Westboro, passed away on Thursday, April 16, 2020 at UW-Hospital in Madison. Donna will have a private interment. A celebration of life is going to be planned in the future when the sun is shining and her whole family can be together to stay up all night while they share memories and stories of all the great times they had with her.
Donna grew up in Loves Park, Ill. She moved to Marshfield, with husband Steve Krueger, and raised her three sons. She later moved to Rib Lake to own and operate a local bar. Donna retired from Golden Living Center in Rib Lake as an activity director and enjoyed fishing, crocheting, quilting and watching the wildlife out of her windows and on the game cameras. She truly enjoyed hosting holidays and being with family, especially during deer hunting season. She also loved to play games and occasionally ended up talking with family all night long.
Donna is survived by her 25 year partner in all things, Gary L. Marschke; sisters, Sandra Gioja, Cathy Thompson (Bob Schlueter), Gail (Don) Alberts and Kay (Jeff) Stone; sister-in-law, Shirley Scott; her loving sons, Joe (Ann) Browne and Richard (Katherine) Krueger; stepchildren she brought under her wing, Thea (Chad) Hempel, Gary Nolan Marschke, Tamara (Jerry) Allen and Trinnan (David) Qureshi. She will be greatly missed by her adoring grandchildren, Seth Browne, Shania and Kelsey Krueger, Gary Nicholas Marschke, Tauren, Talia and Tiana Hempel, Madison and Jackson Allen and Olivia, Jada and Sophia Qureshi; and great-granddaughter, Meeya Marschke. She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.
Donna was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Norma Scott; husband, Steve Krueger; son, Ben Krueger; brother, Glen Scott; and nephew, Frank Wadzinski.
Donna’s family would like to thank the amazing staff at UW Hospital and the Rib Lake Ambulance for their wonderful care of her. Also, many thanks to extended family and friends that supported us during this difficult time.
