With her family by her side, Leta was taken into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 5, 2023.
She was born near Appleton on May 19, 1944, the daughter of the late Kenneth and Mildred (Maas) Neumann. Soon after, they moved to her maternal grandparent’s farm in Greenville.
She became a child of God through Holy Baptism at Mount Olive Evangelical Lutheran Church, where she was also confirmed in the Christian faith. She graduated from Fox Valley Lutheran High where she met the love of her life, Charles (Chuck) Krueger. They were married on May 9, 1964, and were blessed with two loving children, Scott and Kara.
After working for Farm Credit Services for twenty-six years, Leta retired in 2000, giving her quality time to enjoy with her family, which she adored. She was a faithful member of Mount Olive Evangelical Lutheran Church all her life. Her greatest passions were working outside, gardening, canning, cooking, baking and candy making.
She is survived by her son Scott Krueger of Greenville, daughter Kara (Greg) Wichman of Bonduel, grandchildren Ashley Krueger of Appleton, Alexander (Alyssa) Krueger of Neenah, Alicia (Jordan) Barkholtz of Greenville, Cody (Bailey) Wichman of Appleton, Collin Wichman of Bonduel, Morgan Wichman of Bonduel, great-grandchildren Jase, Hadley, Kynlee, Colbie and Haven, brother Gary (Christine) Neumann of New London, brother-in-law Raymond Kersten of Appleton and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, mother and father-in-law Adolph and Edith Krueger and sister-in-law Bonnie Kersten.
In accordance with respecting her wishes, the Christian Funeral for Leta will be private.
The family would like to offer their sincere thanks to everyone who cared for and about Leta and them during these difficult days. They include the pastoral staff of Mount Olive Ev. Lutheran Church, Dr. Craig Boyson, DC, Nichol Frank of Primary Care, ThedaCare Hospice and Cherry Meadows staff as well as countless family and friends who offered their prayers and support. We will never forget your kindness.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to Mount Olive Ev. Lutheran Church are appreciated.
I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness. II Timothy 4:7-8.
