Sherri M. Kreft, Marathon passed away Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
She was born February 13, 1947 in Athens, daughter of the late Sylvester and Linda (Hardt) Schmitt. On May 27, 1967 she married Duane Kreft at St. Anthony Catholic Church, Athens. He survives.
Sherri was primarily a homemaker, but also worked as a dietary aide at Aspirus Wausau Hospital for many years. She enjoyed shopping and baking, being the “go to” volunteer mom for her two children during their school years, as well as bowling and snowmobiling in her earlier years. She would tell you that her greatest happiness came from spending time with her “three little angels”, the grandchildren.
