We do not have Anna Krueger’s obituary yet, but this is what we know so far:

Editors note:  Anna and her husband August moved into the home of Carl Vagt after the death of Mrs. Vagt in 1932 and lovingly took care of Mr. Vagt. .

Mr. Vagt per his obituary “Since the time of his wife death tried pitifully to carry on alone, both the burden of many years making itself felt, he happily accepted the gracious offer of Mr. and Mrs. August Krueger to move in with him and take care of him. This arrangement proved a veritable blessing to Mr. Vagt, a blessing which he deeply appreciated and which flooded his declining years with peace and quiet of a beautiful sunset. Being relieved of all cares and worries and surrounded by loving attention and care, he enjoyed life as never before and no doubt desired to have it continued.”
