Bonnie was born Oct. 1, 1941, in Merrill, Wis., to parents Earl Levi and Lilly Adela (Stevenson) Cottrell. Bonnie attended schools in Merrill and graduated from Merrill High School with the class of 1959. She later earned her degree as a court reporter from the Minnesota School of Business. On June 15, 1963, Bonnie was united in marriage to Dennis L. Krueger. Their union in marriage was blessed with a son, Chad; a daughter, Kerry; and over 49 years of love and devotion.
Bonnie enjoyed horseback riding, gardening, and canning. Bonnie was a gifted seamstress who devoted 40 years to the Sewing Circle at First Presbyterian Church. When things needed to be in perfect working order, Bonnie would double as the sewing machine mechanic of the group. With Dennis at her side, Bonnie would travel the world and marvel at the sights and cultures found in Africa, China, and Russia. One of Bonnie’s favorite memories from her travels was being aboard the large Windjammer cruises in the Caribbean. Bonnie will be remembered as a loving wife, mom, and grandma, who was creative, kind, and patient. She will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
