Karen L. Krueger-Pierce


Karen L. Krueger-Pierce Karen L. Krueger-Pierce TOMAHAWK, Wis. – Karen L. Krueger-Pierce passed on to the other side on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, after having cancer since 2011.

Life passes by fast and the older you get the faster it goes. No time to sit around, get moving to those who can. I’ve gone through life doing things my way (and sometimes getting in trouble for it) and in the end this obit is my way!

To my husband, who has always been by my side, I love you with all my heart. So sorry we can’t grow old together. In spirit I will be there. Remember my father warned you about me! To my kids and grandson, I’ll be watching you when you least expect it and trying to figure out how to change your mind. I love you and please love each other through thick and thin. Look for me in subtle ways outdoors because I will be around, maybe a breeze kicks up or a butterfly lands on you.

I loved being outside gardening, walking, boating, picking agates. In the winter I loved to bake. If you were lucky you would get some of the goods.

To my great friends that stuck by me, you are still my friends. (Monkey, sorry for leaving you on the porch by yourself.) I love you all, stick up for yourselves and live life. All in all, every person I have ever met has taught me something, whether it be a good lesson or a disappointing lesson, I’ve learned and I believe that is why we were put on this earth.

I was preceded in death by my parents Lee R. Krueger and Ilene E. Krueger. I am survived by my wonderful husband Thomas E. Pierce; daughter, Ashley A. Warekois; son, Jason L. Warekois; and grandson, Draven X. Warekois; my sister, Paula J. Eades (Randy); brother, Steven J. Krueger (Jenny); nieces, Samantha Eades and Aurora Krueger; cousin Lynn and her family.

Please send no flowers as I have gardens full that bloom every year and I believe I will see them from my vantage point, although no one will see me. I will have no services, just a private party in the future.

Don’t take life so seriously, as much of it is hilarious. Carry on and be yourself, never be someone you are not.
