Obituary: Lori A. Krueger

Lori A. Krueger passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones after a hard fought battle with ALS on April 16, 2024. She was 57 years young.

She was born on May 4, 1966 in Kaukauna, Wisconsin to Donald and Eunice Grissman. She was blessed with two “Sista’s”  Shelly (Tom) Jost and Julie (Mike) Morris, whom she referred to as her best friends throughout her life. Lori married her high school sweetheart and love of her life, John Krueger on July 23, 1988. Together they owned and operated a dairy farm on the outskirts of Hilbert, Wisconsin, known as JOLO Farm (JO-John, LO-Lori). Lori was known for being tough and a hard worker. She hardly ever complained when work had to be done. She especially enjoyed cutting hay when the sun was shining; for the smell of fresh cut hay and so she could work on her tan! Lori also enjoyed tending to her flowers around the yard, family vacations, baking or cooking and family get-togethers. 

Together they built their life on the farm where they raised their three beautiful children: Whitney (Kyle) Kees, Ashley (Devan) Beil, and Kyle Krueger. Despite the demanding work of being a farmer’s wife, Lori was a dedicated mother first and foremost.  Thee BEST Mom!! There was always a delicious homecooked meal ready on the table after a long day’s work. Sunday nights were known as “family night” out in the barn. Throughout the week, you could find Lori attending one of the many extracurricular activities  the kids were involved in. Always their biggest fan! Often with a pan of bars to support the team. As the kids went off to college, she often snuck little notes or trinkets into their bags. A simple gesture that meant the world to her kids. 

Lori treasured her family and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as “Grandma Lori” to three precious grandkids: Jensyn, Kallie, and Kenadie Kees. And she is the only one who knows the name of their fourth grandchild coming this July (Ashley’s)!  She will forever be connected to each of them through the bondage of family and faith that she instilled. Lori voiced being blessed for her many friends and how she thanked God for them each day. She is remembered as selfless, loved for having a heart of gold and beautiful soul. It was a gift to have known Lori in your life.

The family would like to sincerely thank all of the support shown over the years. Pastor Mark Krueger, Pastor Marc Axelrod, all those who kept the meal train rolling, friends who took the time to visit,  and the wonderful Compassus Hospice team.A service in celebration of Lori's life will be at 11:00 am on Wednesday, April 24, 2024 at St. Peter Lutheran Church (43 N. 3rd St.) in Hilbert with Rev. Mark Krueger officiating.  Burial will be in the St. Peter Lutheran Cemetery in Hilbert.  A time of visitation will be held at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 4:30 pm until 7:30 pm on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 and on Wednesday at the church from 9:30 am until 10:45 am.  At the time of the service and following, there will be a link available at for those wishing to watch a memorial video or see pictures of the flowers and gifts given to the family.
