On the beautiful morning of September 17, 2021 Marcel “Marcy” Marvin Krueger passed from his earthly life, to his life with the Lord. He was born to Martha “Anne” Bauman and Ervin W. Krueger on July 15, 1933 in Manchester, WI. He met the love of his life Ginny, through Sunday school, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Manchester, WI. On October 18, 1952 he wed his beloved Virginia Ann Lohrey. Lovingly known to him as “Ginny Ann”. She was the daughter of Walter and Erna (Schultz) Lohrey of Markesan, WI. The couple made their home on the farm in Manchester, with Marcel’s Dad, who was a widower. Marcel was drafted into the army and arrived at his station in Ft. Leonard Missouri on February 7, 1955. In 1957 Marcel was discharged and he, Virginia and their baby daughter Vickie, became lifelong residents of Beaver Dam and lifelong members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
Marcel and Ginny loved the great outdoors. They loved boating, water skiing and snowmobiling. They loved to fish and hunt together. Ginny wasn’t always a hunter, but decided it was better to join them, than fight em. Many conversations were had telling of the one that got away or the size of the whopper that was caught. They both taught the love of fishing to their daughter, Vickie, who went on to teach her husband Norbert.
In 1997, Marcel retired from John Deere, Horicon. This opened the next chapter of sun and fun, in Ft. Myers, FL for 6 months out of the year. They became “Snow Birds.” They loved the ocean, ocean fishing, walking the sandbars at low tide, hunting for seashells and volunteering at Ft. Myers beach to keep it clean and pristine. They enjoyed welcoming friends from Wisconsin coming for a visit and making new friends from all over the U.S. and Canada. The warmth and sun kept bringing them back until after 18 years, their drive became more than an enjoyable ride.
Marcel will be lovingly missed by his wife of 69 years Ginny Ann. A daughter Vickie (Norbert) Schleicher of Waupaca, and one grandson Bryce of Wisconsin Rapids, also lovingly known as “Bear”. His beloved cat, Callie Sue and his Granddog Ellie whom he adored.
Marcel’s final wishes were for a quiet passing with Koepsell Cremation assisting the family. There will be no funeral service. We would kindly ask for all those that knew him, to think of him with smiles and fond memories.
This is for you Daddy!
I love you to the moon and back and Daddy’s reply, “No I love you more.”
