Margaret E. (Peggy) Kruger

Margaret E. (Peggy) Kruger, passed away Jan. 10, 2024. The world grew a little dimmer that day and heaven a bit brighter as Peggy took her last breath surrounded by family in her sunny Arizona home.
Peggy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, friend, companion and teacher. She took pride in her role as Mrs. Dr. Larry Kruger and supported his lifelong work and commitment to their community. She had a passion for entertaining and style that was unmatched. Her summers were spent at the family lake home, a place she held dear in her heart.
She loved musicals, reading, cooking and having time with her family. She had many talents and inspired others to find their own talents. Her sewing, needlework, painting, music and faith live on in our homes and in our hearts. Most of all she inspired, prodded and pushed us to be first class versions of ourselves leaving a family legacy of three generations filled with executives, educators, professors, information technologists, administrators, business professionals, doctors, lawyers, nurses, scientists, sales executives and more.
Peggy is survived by: her children, Heidi Wold, Dr. Gretchen (Dennis) Moen, Kathy (Rick) Sovde, David (Barb) Kruger, Alice (Barry) Kusnerik, and Holly Deschene; 17 grandchildren; and 17.75 great-grandchildren.
There is no grief without love. Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. — Dr. Seuss
