In memory of
Flora Krueger March 20, 1956 - February 10, 2017 Durham Flora Antoscia Krueger, 60, passed away on February 10, 2017 after a valiant and difficult 15 month struggle with a primary brain tumor. Her kindness, gentleness and beautiful smile had an impact on everyone she met. Her strength during this illness was truly an inspiration to all who knew her. Flora was born in Providence, RI on March 20, 1956 and was adopted as a newborn and raised by caring and nurturing parents, Francesco Antoscia, Jr. and Grace Iannelli Antoscia, both of whom predeceased her. She is survived by her loving husband, Arthur F. Krueger, Jr. of Durham, NC and her daughters, Deana Roman of Riverview, FL and Dawn McMorrow (Larry) of Whitsett, NC. Her sisters Diana Antoscia (Susan Cambria) of Beford, NH and Sandra Stamper of Inwood, WV survive her along with the joys of her life, her grandsons, twins Jacob and Jarred Roman and Adam Roman of Riverview, FL. In 1987, Flora moved to Spring Hill, FL where she and Art met. They fell in love and married on July 6, 1991 and were inseparable since. Both Flora and Art were bankers, Flora for over 35 years. Flora worked for SunTrust Bank and its various predecessors for the past 19 years until her illness forced her to stop working. She worked in a branch, then managed the Help Desk and later the Loss Prevention Department. She was a Vice President in Cash Services for the past 10 years. Flora and Art lived in Bahama, NC from 1997-2015. They had plans to retire to Florida to be near their family. Plans changed when Flora became ill and they stayed in Durham to be near the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke where Flora received treatment. A Memorial Service and Celebration of Flora's Life will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 2:00 PM at Duke Memorial United Methodist Church in Durham, NC, where Flora and Art are members. Her ashes will be placed in a niche in the church columbarium after the service. The family will receive friends at the home after the service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Flora's memory to the National Brain Tumor Society, Defeat GBM, 55 Chapel St., Suite 200, Newton, MA 02458 or www.braintumor.org .
