Marjorie Kramer - March 26, 2011
Marjorie Kramer was born May 11, 1921 in Lewellen, Neb. and died March 26, 2011 in Holyoke, just short of her 90th birthday.
Marjorie was a lifelong resident of the area. She especially enjoyed the farm where she lived for many years. She was very proud of her family and was involved with their many activities.
She also enjoyed sewing and cooking. The last four to five years, Marjorie spent countless hours compiling “her book.” It was comprised of geneology highlighted and confirmed with many family pictures and was accentuated with poems and remembrances—written in her own hand with historical accounts and appropriate current events all peppered throughout the book.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Harry Kramer, to whom she was married for 58 years; son, Floyd Kramer; parents, Orval and Ethel Lookhart; brothers, William Lookhart and Ellsworth Lookhart; and sisters, Nellie Ruby and Lyndall Fuss.
She is survived by her children, Jack Kramer and wife Bev, Judd Kramer and wife Pat, Judy Niemeyer and husband Dick, Jerry Kramer, Jay Kramer and Pat Duff and Janice Probasco and husband Tony; 15 grandchildren, Karie and Tim Probasco, Tod and Brandy Kramer, Kim and Mike Pritchard, Lisa and Matt Schulz, Chad and Emily Kramer, Brett and Diana Kramer, Brian and Lisa Kramer, April and Jim Calabrese, Candy Niemeyer, Richard Niemeyer Jr. and Patty Ring, Kristy and Scott Brandon, Wendy Duff, Amanda and Jeff Craig, Cori Probasco and Sara Probasco; 25 great-grandchildren, Jeana, Troy and Saige Probasco, Claudia, Alden and Griffin Kramer, Kendra and Owen Pritchard, Henrik and Evelyn Schulz, Kyle, Emmaly, Keith and Megan Kramer, Dylan and Bailey Kramer, Michelle, Katy and Shayla Calabrese, Dante and Donovan Niemeyer, Kassady, Kaleb and Elizabeth Brandon and Katy Duff; three great-great-grandchildren, Abby Probasco, Alex Bailey and Bailey Roux; sister, Louise Wood; four sisters-in-law and one brother-in-law; and numerous nieces and nephews.
