Irene was born at home on November 15, 1922 in Zion Township, to Gustave and Esther (Knebel) Schultz.  She attended the Rural Zion District 43 School.  Having spoken only German at home, she was faced with the challenge of learning English. She would graduate with her class in 1936.  She married Daniel D. Kruger on June 28, 1952.  She was employed by Paynesville Produce and later by Animal Fair, Inc. in Eden Valley, retiring in 1988.  She was an active member of Grace United Methodist Church, having taught Sunday School, serving on the funeral, nursery and flower committees and a member of the Mary Circle.

Irene was a woman of strong Christian faith, loving the simple things in life, the rain, birds singing and flowers. She will be remembered for her baking, canning, embroidering, gardening and playing Rook.

Irene is survived by her daughter Patty (Jim Holen) of New London, son Dick (Kim) Kruger of Paynesville and many nieces and nephews.

Preceding Irene in death were her parents, husband Daniel (1977) and brothers Earl and Ervin Schultz.
