Marsha Mueller - December 28, 2011
Marsha Christine (Krueger) Mueller was born Oct. 11, 1964 to Russell and Donna (Martin) Krueger. Marsha died Wednesday morning, Dec. 28, 2011, at her home in Imperial, Neb. She was 47 years of age.
As a young girl, she grew up and attended school in Holyoke, graduating from Holyoke High School in 1983.
Marsha married Kevin Eugene Mueller in Amherst on Nov. 26, 1983, and the couple settled in Imperial where they resided until 1989. In 1989, they made Ogallala, Neb. their home until relocating back to Imperial in 2010.
Marsha worked various jobs while in Imperial, including the Imperial Street Department and NAPA.
While living in Ogallala she worked at Perkins County Hospital as a receptionist until she could no longer work due to her Multiple Sclerosis in 2001. Marsha battled her MS for over 10 years and most of her symptoms were chronic fatigue, chronic pain, migraine headaches and her cognitive thinking.
Marsha was a fighter and a strong-willed person and she tried to enjoy life the very best she could. In the public’s eye no one really knew how much she suffered from this disease because she tried not to show how much it hurt and never wanted any sympathy.
Marsha’s hobbies were reading and crocheting. She never went anywhere without a book or her crocheting bag. She loved spending time with family, camping and fishing. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with Kevin, doing little things together.
Marsha was preceded in death by her father, Russell.
She is survived by her mother, Donna Krueger of Imperial; husband, Kevin of Imperial; daughter, Teran Enevoldsen and husband Drew of Kimball, Neb.; son, Justin Mueller of Imperial; brothers, Brian Krueger and wife Kay of Greeley, Nolan Krueger and wife Joyce of Amherst and Gary Krueger and wife Dianna of Denton, Texas; brothers-in-law, Rick Mueller and wife Jan of Kearney, Neb., Don Mueller of Sidney, Neb. and Marvin Mueller and wife Betty of McCook, Neb.; many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews; and her first grandchild, who is due Jan. 8, 2012.
Marsha fought a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer and lost, but during this fight she never gave up her strong will to live. Even up to the very last days she mentioned to Kevin that she was not ready to give up and not to give up on her.
Her family was blessed to be by her side holding her hands when God called her home and she left this earthly world.
