November 29, 1918 - April 17, 2012
Thelma Teresa Krueger a loving mother and wife died April 17, 2012 at the age of 93. Born on November 29, 1918 to Ida and Otto Liebke of Toledo, Thelma succumbed to her recent illness with her husband, family and pastor near her at Hospice of Northwest Ohio. A life-long Toledo resident, Thelma spent endless hours working at St. John's Lutheran Church in South Toledo helping with social events, teaching Sunday School classes and preparing children for the church's annual Christmas pageants and singing in the church choir. She loved baking holiday cookies for friends, family and anyone else who admired her baking skills. Her South Toledo home would be filled to near overflowing with hundreds of hand-decorated holiday treats. Thelma enjoyed extended family vacations, especially at Black Lake in Michigan, where she often prepared daily meals for eight to ten family members and friends every day for two weeks and still had time to sit by the water's edge and enjoy the serenity and wait for a sunset. She also spent time in the business world with various positions, including those at Toledo Memorial Park and eventually retiring from the Department of Education at the University of Toledo. She became a member at a number of other Toledo-area congregations and most recently was a faithful member of the Calvary Bible Chapel where she found friendship, comfort and peace. Thelma loved the company of her many friends who stopped by Oakleaf Village in Toledo where she lived. Thelma was preceded in death by her husband, Norman C. Krueger and her second husband, Raymond Wyant and is survived by her husband Henry Hanzl and her only son, Charles (Janet). Visitation and services will be at the Ansberg West Funeral Home at 3000 Sylvania Avenue, Toledo on Friday, April 20, 2012 with a visitation beginning at 11:00AM and the service at 1:00PM conducted by Pastor Andy Hill of Calvary Bible Chapel. She will be laid to rest next to Norman Krueger at Toledo Memorial Park. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Northwest Ohio or the Calvary Bible Chapel at 3740 West Alexis Road, Toledo, OH, 43623.
