Barbara L Krueger, age 74 of Princeton, WI passed away peacefully the 19th of February 2022 with her family by her side. Barb was born the 20th of November 1947 to her loving parents William J and Winifred J Dahlke of Ripon, WI. Barb was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great grandmother and thanks to her Dad’s love of cars, a hell of a mechanic! Barb was a wonderful mother to her three children, grandmother to eleven, and great grandmother to four with one on the way. She was ‘ma’ to many, a friend and loved one to so many others. Barb spent her early years barrel racing on her beloved quarter horse Jenny. Her love of horses and competition were unwavering throughout her life. Barb continued her passion to compete in mud racing and hill climbing in her cherished 1979 Ford Bronco, the black beauty. Barb spent her life loving her family, antiquing, cooking, and never passed by a “freebie” at the end of a driveway. She was a consummate saver, always wanting to help. Whether you needed a few bucks, a button, or a muffler bearing, Barb had it and would happily share. Barb was an artist, a seamstress, an amazing cook, a lover of all animals, (especially her Rottie, Benson and Pitt Izzy), and an avid boater. Any time on the water was always followed by a great cookout and of course a libation or two. Barb loved her home in Princeton on the Fox River; it brought her comfort and peace for over three decades. She loved a good cup of coffee and a chat-able to banter with the best. One was never quite ready for what Barb would say! Barb lived hard, gave freely, loved deeply, and will forever be missed.
