Dottie loved music and in retirement joined the Norwest Choir.  She volunteered at numerous “Paint-a-Thons” (painting houses for elderly homeowners) and volunteered on numerous projects.  She volunteered as a Travelers Assistant for the Metropolitan Public Airport Foundation at the MSP Airport receiving recognition for exemplary service.  She was an active member of Woodlake Lutheran Church, Richfield, MN. 

She was preceded in death by her sisters Martha Penshorn, Clara Hall, Bernie Mayer, Ardie Streck, Helen Berndt and brothers Ray Krueger and Larry Krueger.

A memorial service and celebration of Dottie’s life will be held in the springtime in Wonewoc, WI with burial at St Paul’s Lutheran Cemetery in Wonewoc, WI
