Marilyn (Mardy) Anna Krueger (Nee Lambrecht)
Mardy Krueger, recently of Okotoks and formerly of Estevan, Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully at the High River Hospital at the age of 66 following a nine-year fight with cancer. Mardy’s husband, children, grandchildren, favorite Aunt Tillie and dear friends Donna and Bill Dutton and Jeanne and Gordon Schnell were with her prior to her passing.
Mardy was born in Hardy, Saskatchewan on April 22, 1935 and was raised in Ceylon, Saskatchewan. She attended high school in Regina at Sacred Heart Academy. Following high school she worked at Sears for a year. In 1953 Mardy began Teacher’s College in Moose Jaw where she met her husband Erwin. Mardy and Erwin married in 1955. In 1956 Mardy and Erwin attended university in Regina.
In 1957 Mardy and Erwin moved to Estevan where Mardy worked briefly as a secretary at Continental Emsco before resuming her teaching career. Mardy taught at all four schools in the Estevan Separate School system as well as at the Estevan Comprehensive School.

During her teaching career, Mardy obtained her Bachelor of Education and her Bachelor of Arts degrees. Mardy and Erwin lived in Estevan until August of 2000 when they moved to Okotoks.
Mardy’s focus in life was her Roman Catholic faith. Attending daily Mass was very important to Mardy. Mardy was devoted to many and always made time to minister to her family and friends in their times of joy and sorrow. A special ministry of Mardy’s was spending time with others who were fighting cancer. When Mardy was diagnosed with bone cancer she promised God that she would help anyone who asked for her assistance.
Mardy led a very busy and meaningful life. Mardy was involved with the Pro-Life Association, the Catholic Women’s League, the Archdiocesan and Estevan Deanery Pastoral Council, the Charismatic Movement, the St. John the Baptist Parish Choir, the Art Docents, Beta Sigma Phi, the University of Regina Women’s Association, the National Welfare Council, St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary, the Estevan Retired Teachers’ Association, Estevan Diversified Services and various political parties.
