Central City — Katherine "Kathy" Krieger, 52, of Central City,  died in the comfort of her own home on Tuesday, March 28, 2023.

Visitation was held Sunday, April 2, 2023 at the Berean Bible Church in Central City.

Funeral services were held Monday, April 3, 2023 at the church in Central City. Pastor Jim Reynolds officiated.

A private family burial will be held at a later date.

Memorials may be made to Resourcing Now in Kathy's name. Resourcing Now exists to spread the good news of Jesus Christ through Bibles and literature distribution around the world.

Apfel Funeral Home in Grand Island was in charge of the arrangements.

Kathy was born on July 2, 1970, in Neligh. She was the second daughter of Jerry and Sharon (Deines) Hoyt. She and her sister Beth spent many happy years roaming the family ranch located near Ashfall Fossil Beds Park in northeast Nebraska. Kathy graduated from Nebraska Christian High School in Central City.  

In 1989, Kathy married her high school sweetheart Lorin Krieger in O'Neill. Together they spent 34 happy, not always perfect, yet joyfully chaotic years raising their five children, moving nine times and spoiling their first four grandkids. These happy years were made possible by their common foundation of a belief in their Savior, Jesus Christ.  

Kathy has used her voice throughout her lifetime to share the tremendous hope we have of eternal life through repentance and faith in Jesus. She was not perfect, but redeemed by our gracious God. She would want you to also know that same assurance of eternity. 

Kathy is survived by her husband Lorin Krieger of Central City; their five children Tyler Krieger of Springfield, Jewel (Nolan) Swanson of O'Neill, Derek (Kristi) Krieger of Mt. Airy, NC, Bailey (Isaac) Jefferson of Central City and Bryce Krieger of Marquette; her four much-loved grandkids Piper and Ransom, children of Derek and Kristi Krieger of Mt. Airy, NC, and Benny and Ava, children of Jewel and Nolan Swanson of O'Neill; her mother Sharon Hoyt of Hastings; one sister Beth (Hoyt) Montgomery of Burwell; along with many special extended family, friends and Tabitha Hospice Staff. 

She was preceded in death by her father Jerry Hoyt in 2017.
