Juene E. Kueffer

June 22, 1928 ~ February 24, 2022 (age 93)


Juene Elizabeth [Beahm] Kueffer, 93, Cambria formerly of Portage WI was carried on the wings of an angel to her Heavenly Father when God said come follow me February 24, 2022. Juene was born June 22, 1928, the 10th of 13 children to Herbert & Susie [Fuller] Beahm in Springvale Township, Cambria, Wisconsin.

She grew up in rural Pardeeville, attended school in Marcellon Township and Pardeeville High School. She was very proud to have obtained her GED in 1973 from MATC, Portage. She married Alvin Kueffer September 11, 1945. They were blessed with 5 children during their 64 years of marriage.

Juene and Al worked Buckhill Farm, near Cambria, from 1949-1966 before moving to Portage. Juene was never idle and worked throughout her life retiring at age 70 from Converter Concept in Pardeeville.  Juene enjoyed painting wood cut-outs that Al made for the family, playing cards and trips to the casino.  She was a supporter of our military service men and women.  She will be fondly remembered for her full heart and helping hands. She never missed a birthday or special occasion sending a card and a phone call. If you stopped to visit or play cards, she always had a meal ready. We could not have hand picked a better Mother and Grandmother. We were all truly blessed to have had her in our lives. 

Juene is survived by her children  Linda (David J.) Hughes of Cambria; Loretta (James Sr.) Hagen of Pewaukee; Diana  Krinke of Cambria; Susie (Dale) Katsma  of Plymouth; Richard (Cindy) Kueffer of Bellevue NE;  13 grandchildren Brian (Shelia) Hughes; James Jr. (Sara) Hagen; Jeanna (Paul Jr) Glass; Jennifer (Butch) Sauer; Beth Hughes (Jeff) Walters; Julie (Tony) Cavazos; Matthew Hagen (June Suwanabol); Daniel (Molly) Kueffer; Jessica Krinke; Benjamin (Tracy) Katsma; Rebekah (Tim) Piazza; Christopher Kueffer (Miaranda Barnes); Ashley Kueffer; 32 great-grandchildren and 14 great-great-grandchildren (#15 in May), sister Doris Scott of Madison, brother-in-law James Kueffer of Sun Prairie and sister-in-law Mary Beahm of Montello, nieces, nephews; other relatives; and friends. Godchildren Rebekah (Katsma) Piazza and Charles Blodgett. Juene was preceded in death by her parents, husband Alvin (2009), son-in-law Dale Krinke, great- granddaughter Caylee Krinke-Sauer, brothers Henry, Merlin, Harley, Lawrence (Bill), and Norbert in infancy. Sisters Verla Price, Alma Carlson, Juanita Carlson, Beulah (Boots) Hodgman, Carol Tortolano, and Dorothy in infancy and dear friend Jim Mulhern. 

A special thank you to Dale and Diana for welcoming her into their home for the last 4 ½ years and for their family, especially Chelsea, for the loving care.  Thank you to Marcia, her beautician, for coming to the home; St. Croix Hospice and her nurse Michelle for the compassionate care provided; and Grasse Funeral Home. Juene’s days were brightened by all her family and friends that called, sent cards/flowers, or stopped by to visit.
