Obituary

Donald Albert Krueger, age 76, of Marshfield, passed away on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, at Marshfield Health Services.

A memorial service will be held at 12 noon on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021, at the Hansen-Schilling Funeral Home (1010 E. Veterans Pkwy.) in Marshfield. Visitation will from 10:30 a.m. until the time of service.

The son of Albert and Adeline (Klawitter) Krueger, Donald was born in Marquette Township, Green Lake County, Wisconsin, Oct. 28, 1944. He was raised on the family farm, attended grade school nearby, and graduated from Markesan High School in 1962. He went on to attend Madison Business School in Madison, graduating in 1964.

After graduation, Don moved to Marshfield and went to work at Robert Klinner Accounting. He worked there for several years in the accounting field, after which he worked at H & S Manufacturing, Fiskars, Figi’s, Wal-Mart, Menards, Columbus Business Office, and ending his career at First Presbyterian Church. Don had owned and operated Hub City Bowling Lanes from 1981 to 1991; he also served as 7th District alderman for two terms, after which time he felt it was time for new ideas and personnel from the 7th District to serve on the council.

Don married Christine Bohman on Sep. 11, 1971, at St. Michael’s Church in Hewitt, Wisconsin.

He is survived by his wife, Chris; sisters-in-law, JoAnn Bohman, Kay (Allen) Salzwedel; brother-in-law, Robert (Lori) Bohman; nieces and nephews; and other family members. His companions for the past years: Angel, Missy, Foxy, Pixie and Midnite, have been missing him. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Lois Ann Tietz; and brothers-in-law, Delmar Tietz and Rich Bohman.

During his life, Don enjoyed fishing, hunting, bowling and woodworking. He truly enjoyed his fishing trips to Canada with Wayne Radlinger, Bill Mitten and crew. He also enjoyed watching the Wisconsin Badgers, Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers, both good and bad seasons.

We wish to thank Heartland Hospice Care for all their help, especially Miranda and Julie; also, Vicky and all the nurses and caregivers at Marshfield Health Services; the personnel at Clark County Rehabilitation & Living Center; and the doctors, nurses and medical personnel at Marshfield Medical Center.
