Born Jean Marie Kinsella in 1923 in Emmetsburg, Iowa, Jean Kruger passed away at the “young” age of 96 years old on March 28, 2019. One of five children in the Kinsella family, growing up in the Great Depression, she lived her life full of perseverance, love of God, optimism, dedication to family and friends, a passion for sports of all kinds, and a kind heart and soul. After graduating from high school, she attended nursing school at St. Vincent Hospital in Sioux City, Iowa. She moved to Oakland, Calif., in 1945 to work at Oak Knoll Hospital, and soon thereafter transferred to the Veterans Affairs hospital in Livermore. She met her husband Leslie “Bud” Kruger in 1949 at the Livermore Rodeo and they married a year later. Jean and Bud built a home in Livermore in 1952 where they raised their two children, Fred and Maggie.

That is where Jean would call home for over 67 years.
