Saint Paul, Missouri

Teresa Marie Kruse (nee Kaimann), of Saint Paul, MO, passed away Thursday, March 14, 2024, at the age of 95. Beloved wife of the late Glennon Kruse; cherished daughter of the late Theodore and Rose Kaimann; devoted mother of Sandy (Frank) Lauritzen, Donna Kruse, Terrie (Dennis) Wehmeier, and Debbie (the late Jerry) Schuette; loving grandmother of Darrin Lauritzen, Julie (Larry) Leach, Nathan (Emily) Lauritzen, Chet (Barrie) Wehmeier, Glenda Muldoon, Caroline (Jerome) Moran, Dana (Donnie) Kruse, Jessica (Mark) Ambrose, Quinn Schuette, and Shelbie Schuette; treasured great grandmother of 18; precious great-great grandmother of 5; and dear sister of Darlene Parr, and Sharon (Kenny) Eisenbath. Teresa was also preceded in death by 3 siblings, Raymond Kaimann, Richard Kaimann, and Mary Ann Schroer.
Teresa, a cherished member of St. Paul Catholic Church's Ladies Quilters and Ladies Sodality, also held a revered place in the Women's Bowling Hall of Fame - O'Fallon Association. Commencing her full-time bowling journey in 1961 until her final game in 2016, Teresa dedicated 55 years to the sport. Beyond bowling, she found joy in quilting, playing cards, and exploring the world through travel, her love for flowers shining brightly throughout. Her warm presence and affection will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Memorials may be made in Teresa's name to Masses or the Alzheimer's Association.
