Ann Kramer

Nu-Roc Community Healthcare is very happy to announce that Ann Kramer has been selected as the current Resident of the Season.

Ann is a true “Laona Girl”, having spent her whole life in the area. She was born into the Bradle family; the 2nd youngest of 9 children. Ann was the Valedectorian of her high school class, and she graduated a year early. She married Wilmer “Butch” Kramer and feels fortunate to have been able to spend 55 years as his wife. Butch and Ann raised 2 children, Mary and Kevin. Ann loves her grandchildren and is now welcoming great-grandchildren into the family.

Ann has always been a very hard worker; she spent 40 years working in the office at Connor’s Store. After retiring she spent 15 years working in the kitchen for the Laona School District. Every May 1st, she would make May Baskets to bring to school with her. Ann is a people person, she loves to be around others and has always liked offering a helping hand.

Ann’s family says that she is a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. One of her favorite traditions was making stockings full of goodies for her grandchildren to celebrate St. Nick’s night.

Her Catholic faith is very important to Ann; she was actively involved in the Ladies’ Group at St. Leonard’s church. Ann loved being a homemaker and enjoyed cooking, sewing, picking berries, and canning the vegetables from her big garden. While living at Nu-Roc, Ann spends much time with her many friends. On nice days, she likes to be outside on the deck visiting. She loves bingo, and has become the official assistant, passing out cards and chips and cleaning up afterwards. She likes to look nice and always takes time with her clothes and appearance.

The staff, administration, and other residents of Nu-Roc enjoy Ann’s company and are proud to award her this honor.
