KRUEGER; Maria (nee Kroeker). Feb. 22, 1927 ~ Feb. 9, 2014. Maria passed away peacefully February 9, 2014 at the age of 86 years. She was born in Krasikowo, Russia and moved to Brazil with her family in 1930, where she met and married Henry, her husband of 60 years. They had 4 children while living in Bage, Brazil, before moving to BC on May 15, 1968. Maria was a wonderful Wife, Mother, Oma and Great Grandmother. At the top of her list was feeding her family, everything from her delicious borscht to her coveted peppermint cookies. She also found utmost pleasure in spoiling us with her hours of knitting, keeping everyone’s feet warm. We will forever remember her gifts of deep love and commitment to each of us. She will be dearly missed by her husband Henry and her children Maria (Udo) Lange, Kathi (Doug) Young, John (Marlene) Krueger and Frieda (Harry) Dueck.
