Jeannine Elaine Krieger, 92, of New Troy, a wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother, died peacefully, Monday, October 23, 2023.

Her life began August 31, 1931 in Michigan, the middle child of eight children born to William and Justeena Boyd. She married her high school sweetheart Norman “Sonny” Krieger on December 2, 1950 in Trinity Lutheran Church in Sawyer, Michigan.  After fifty-six years of marriage, he preceded her in death in 2006.

          In her high school days, Jeannine played basketball very well and was a cheerleader. Jeannine loved God, her family and her church, Trinity Lutheran in Sawyer.  She was devoted to the church and school, singing in the choir, participating in the Parent Teacher league, coaching girls’ basketball, working as a custodian, and serving as the Ladies’ Aid President.  She never missed a Sunday, and loved to sing old hymns and “You Are my Sunshine”.  Jeannine served as Weesaw Township Clerk and was very active in the Women’s Republican Party. She was a huge River Valley High School supporter, selling tickets at sporting events and serving for many years as an administrative assistant in the superintendent’s office. After retirement, she volunteered at the community center library in New Troy.
