Mrs. Krueger was born Sept. 18, 1912, in Colby, a daughter of the late Otto and Louise (Schuman) Dins. She attended the Colby Township School.

On Aug. 29, 1934, Adeline was united in holy marriage to Laurence Krueger at the Zion Lutheran Church in Colby. He preceded her in death on May 11, 1990. Adeline and Laurence owned and operated the Oakland Cheese Factory in Green Grove from 1935 to 1946. The family moved to Marshfield and Adeline worked for Dick Halle and Alicea's Gift Shop as well as Wickersham Jewelry, along with raising their children.

Mrs. Krueger was a member of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, serving on numerous committees as well as being a member and officer of the Ladies Aid organization for many years. Beside her family and her faith, Adeline's passions were sewing, cooking, traveling and playing cards.

She is lovingly survived by two children, Audrey (Glen) Wickersham, Colby, and Gerald Krueger, Green Bay; two sisters, Bertha Schauer, Spencer, and Dorothy Dins, Colby; two brothers, Fredrick Dins, Colby, and Rudy (Dina) Dins, Edgar.
