Birth14 December 1923Louise Margaret Brechtl was born on 14 December 1923 at Plain, Sauk, Wisconsin.
She was the daughter of John Baptist Brechtl and Margaret M. Gruber.
Marriage21 May 1946Louise Margaret Brechtl married Norman F. Kraemer, son of Alphons John Kraemer and Mary Theresia Frank, on 21 May 1946.
Death6 February 2020Louise Margaret Brechtl died on 6 February 2020 at age 96 Louise Margaret Kraemer, age 96 of Plain, entered her home in heaven on February 6, 2020. She was born on December 14, 1923 in Plain, Wisconsin to John and Margaret (Gruber) Brechtl. Louise attended St. Luke’s Elementary and High School, graduating in May 1942. One of the thousands helping at the home front, she worked at Badger Ammunition Plant in Prairie du Sac, making gun powder for the army during World War II, and for her future husband Norm, who was in the Pacific Theater in Guam and Okinawa. She wrote to Norm every single day that he was gone. She then went on to her favorite pre-marriage job at the Plain Feed Mill working for Rube Schultz. Louise married Norman Kraemer on May 21, 1946 and moved into her new home in June 1947 where they lived together for 72 years. After raising her family of seven children, she returned to the work force and worked in Kraemer Brothers’ office for several years. Louise was also the librarian at St. Luke’s School for many years, while also keeping records for two pastors of St. Luke’s Church. She was always a good listener and a sounding board for her husband Norman, as he was a founder of Kraemer Brothers Construction Company in 1948, and needed someone to confide in. Her greatest pleasure was raising her seven children and following them on their journey through life, watching them grow in their chosen fields. She loved to drive to Merrill, Stevens Point and Wild Rose to spend time with her daughters, but this ended when she was inflicted with macular degeneration and could no longer drive her beloved little Buick. Louise warmed us with her welcoming smile. She wanted to feed anyone who came to her home. She had a passionate sense of injustice, ie-becoming enraged over news of children who were starving. Louise’s guiding wisdom and peace in her life was her Catholic Faith and her devotion to Mary and the Rosary. She is survived by her children, Tom (Soni) Kraemer, Mickey (Irv) Snyder, Grace (Kimball) Nyman, Jean Schnick, Bonnie Kraemer, Dr. Matt (Jennifer) Kraemer, Becky (Marty) Loy, 25 grandchildren, and 21 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Norman, parents, John B. & Margaret Brechtl, her sisters Sr. Michaeline Brechtl and Mary Ann Liegel, brothers Willard (Bill) and Rev. Joseph Brechtl, son-in-law Tom Schnick and a granddaughter, Sara Loy. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Plain. Fr. John Silva will officiate with a private family burial in the church cemetery. Visitation will be held on Monday, February 10, 2020 from 5:00 P.M.-7:00 P.M. at St. Luke’s Catholic Church and again on Tuesday at the church from 10:00 A.M. until the time of Mass.
