Hello my name is Pauline Krueger. Are you saved? “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is the Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) Pauline G. Krueger, went peacefully to be with our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ on December 3, 2022, surrounded by family at Pine Crest Nursing Home. Born November 23, 1938, in Madison Wisconsin, to Elmer and Esther Legrey. Pauline graduated from Madison Central High school, attended the University of Wisconsin Madison and later worked at the UW Cancer Clinic. She met her beloved sweetheart and late husband Dr. LeRoy A. Krueger in Madison. The Bible says to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to everyone.” (Mark 16:15) Pauline took that to heart and tried her best to show Christ’s love to others. She spread the good news to many places, including overseas, and by handing out a Christian multi-lingual track titled “Life Begins” that she authored. As a result of these tracks and the Holy Spirit working in people’s hearts there have been countless testimonials, going back to the 70’s, of individuals and family members that have come to know the Lord Jesus as their personal savior. She had many people assist her in this ministry. Pauline helped start Merrill Bible Church, lead jail ministries in Lincoln and Marathon Counties, spoke at Christian Woman’s Clubs, started Bible studies (including the Sunshine Group), and was active in Child Evangelist Fellowship and Stonecroft Ministries. She sponsored many people to attend Crescent Lake Bible Camp and Camp Forest Springs. Her life was about showing love and sacrificing for others rather than herself. Pauline especially loved children and those that were in need. Ultimately she would give to anyone around her.
Pauline’s family included her husband LeRoy of 53 years; siblings Elmer (Marcia) Legrey, Lois Flad, Rhonda (Glenn) Collier; seven children the late Regi Goebel, Sophia (James) Stevens-Rustad, William Stevens, Matthew (Shari) Krueger, Mark Krueger, Michelle Krueger, Miriam Gustafson; seven grandchildren Kyle, Maria, Brandon, Micah, Kitara, Jacob, Gabi; and, great granddaughter Natalia.
A Celebration of Pauline’s life will be held on Saturday December 17, 2022, at Highland Church, 508 Eugene Street, Merrill, WI 54452. Visitation 10:00 am, Service 11:00 am. A meal will follow.
