Lillian Marie Kruger

July 12, 1958 - August 17, 2023


Lillian Marie Kruger passed away on August 17, 2023, at the age of 65. She was born on July 12, 1958, in Jacksonville, FL, to her beloved parents Thomas Hill and Vera Boxx.

Throughout her childhood Lillian travelled around the world with her family and lived many places, including Peru, Maine, and NY. She was the baby of the family and had 2 older brothers and 3 older sisters that she adored. Lillian learned the importance of compassion and acceptance from an early age. She always welcomed others into her home with a warm and open heart. Lillian married young and along with her husband Robert (Bob) raised 6 children. They were a military family and Robert and Lillian moved several times. They lived in NY, Illinois, Maine, North Carolina, Germany, Texas and back to NY. They spent summers visiting family in Florida and NY. Eventually they decided to settle down in Utah.

Throughout her life Lillian not only dedicated her time to family, she spent many years working with the children and youth in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She has made a positive impact on countless lives throughout her compassionate service.

After raising her children to adulthood Lillian fulfilled her dream to become a registered nurse. At age 50 she went back to school and received her nursing degree. She loved working as a nurse and was compassionate and dedicated to the patients she took care of.

Lillian will be deeply missed by her beloved husband, Robert (Bob)Kruger, and their children: Aimee (Jess) Lyman, Michelle Kruger, Laura (Dylan) Price, Hollie Kruger, Ashley (Dan) Bush, and Robert Kruger. Her memory will also be forever cherished by her grandchildren: Demi, Gracie, Steven, Sophia, Jude, Scarlett, Thor, Saxon, Robert William, Keenan, Sean, and Ava. She is survived by her siblings Linda Bradbury, Sandra Hill, and Benson Hill. Lillian was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas Hill and Vera Boxx, as well as her siblings Melissa Hill and Thomas Hill.
