Edythe Ann Krueger, 75, of Laurel Run passed away Tuesday morning, Sept. 10, 2013, at home with her family by her side after a valiant four-year courageous battle with cancer.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in Neptune, N.J., she was the daughter of the late Richard and Emily Feurhelm Poppele. Edythe was a graduate of Irvington, N.J., High School and was a homemaker all of her life.
Edythe was totally devoted to her family, especially her husband and best friend, Fred, with whom she traveled extensively. She took great pride in her children's and grandchildren's accomplishments and surrounded herself with pictures and mementos of the people and places that were most important.
She loved to cook, craft, and sew. All family babies were blessed with a special handmade blanket or stuffed animal made with love. Her grandchildren have been blessed to have many special memories from Grandma.
Visitors to her home were always treated to delicious meals. Edythe spent many hours perfecting recipes, but was most famous for her brownies. She was affectionately dubbed "The Brownie Queen." She never failed to make them for family parties and sent them off to college with her grandchildren or take them to doctor's appointments as gratitude for the wonderful care she received.
Edythe's courage throughout her illness was her families' strength. She was always a role model. Her quiet, loving devotion to her husband, children, and grandchildren were an inspiration to her family.
Surviving are her husband of 53 years, Fred; daughter, Gretchen Himlin, Kingston; son, Garett Krueger and his wife, Marge, Plains Township; grandchildren, Matthew, Samantha, Alex and Cory Himlin, Kara and Kyle Krueger; brother, Richard Poppele, Minneapolis, Minn.; sister, Judy Rudas, Marco Island, Fla.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Sept. 21 in Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre, with the Rev. Peter Kuritz and the Rev. Janell Wigen officiating. Interment will be at the convenience of the family. There will be no calling hours.
