Kathlyn Anderson Kreger

November 13, 1947 ~ January 25, 2024 (age 76) 76 Years Old


Kathy Anderson Kreger, 76, of Wake Forest, NC, passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2024.

Kathy was preceded in death by her loving husband, James DeForest Kreger, Jr. on December 2018 in Southern Pines, NC; and middle sister, Connie Anderson of Clear Lake, IA.

She is survived by her oldest daughter, Amanda Kreger Turner (Tom Turner), their two children, Gannon and Jillian of Wake Forest, NC; younger daughter, Courtney Kreger Queen (Shaun Queen), their two children, Grace and Audrey Queen of Carthage, NC; brother, Robert Anderson (Kathie) of Des Moines, IA; younger sister, Debra Croft (Jon), their two daughters, Jenna Knox and Jordan Croft and their family of Des Moines, IA.

Kathy was a well loved and respected Elementary Educator and Reading Recovery Practitioner. She loved teaching young children to read and was instrumental in preparing her grandchildren for their education success and achievements.

She loved playing Bunco and spending time with her friends in Greensboro. They were a special group of ladies and mothers who enjoyed their outings and holiday gatherings together.

Kathy treasured her time with family including annual family beach gatherings, shopping trips with her daughters and weeks in the summers with her grandchildren. She was a kind and generous person who would give of her time to help others whenever possible.

She was taken from us way too early by Dementia and we saw firsthand the affects Dementia/Alzheimer’s had not only on her but also the entire family.  

A celebration of life service will be held on Friday, March 15, 2024 from 1-3 PM at The Makery, 317 E. Roosevelt Ave. Wake Forest, NC 27587. 

We would like to ask that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association in mom’s honor to help continue the research to hopefully one day find a cure. Donations can be made at
