Krueger, Michelle Jacqueline (nee Savage)
March 20, 1966 – April 15, 2012
Age 46 of Minneapolis. Our beloved Michele passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family and friends, after a long battle with cancer. Michele was born in Los Angeles, but from age five grew up and made her home in Minneapolis, graduating from Southwest High School and the University of Minnesota. Michele was an avid swimmer and horseback rider, and an accomplished singer. She loved to read, write, and cook. But most of all she poured her amazing energy and love into her faith, her church, her family, and an ever widening circle of friends who were touched by her sympathetic understanding and sweetness of spirit. Michele poured herself into her husband and children. In her final year of health she was homeschooling five children while simultaneously mothering a pre-schooler, toddler and baby! Frequently she would meet and mentor young women after the children were in bed, helping them find healing and wholeness in Christ. She also accompanied her husband in premarital counseling for many young couples, helping them enter marriage with wholeness of spirit and wise attitudes. She was a woman of passionate worship, inspiring many in uninhibited worship of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. She is survived by her parents Diane and Wade Savage, brothers Kirk and Stephen Savage, husband Craig Krueger, and eight beautiful children, Ian, Ava, Nicole, Tessana, Eric, Janae, Sophia, and Tasia. We love you Michele, and await our reunion in heaven! The funeral will be held Saturday April 21 at Redeeming Love Church, 2425 White Bear Ave N., Maplewood, MN. Visitation at 9:30 AM, service at 11 AM. Memorials preferred to Our Lady of Peace Home, 2076 St. Anthony Ave., St. Paul, MN 55104.
