Obituary for Charlene Sue Breuker

Worthington, MN

      Charlene Sue (Dreesen) Breuker was born September 30, 1953 to John and Helen (Schneiderman) Dreesen in Sibley, IA. After graduating high school, she attended college where she obtained a nurses aid degree. She married Jerry Breuker on January 18, 1975 in Sibley, IA. Following marriage, they lived in several locations in southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa before moving to the present farm west of Worthington in 1980. They were blessed with three children: Jeremy, Jedidiah and Kala. Throughout the years they raised hogs, cattle and crops. Char went to be with the Lord surrounded by her family on July 4, 2014 at the age of 60 in Sioux Falls, SD.

      Char enjoyed being active on the family farm and spent many years working side by side with Jerry.

      There wasn’t a job she couldn’t do, as long as she could be outside while she did it. Throughout the years, Char loved playing various sports (and winning!) She enjoyed the activities and horse related events her kids and grandkids were involved in. Char cherished the many hours spent with her grandchildren and teaching them to cook and bake. She spent quality time making special memories with each one of her grandchildren. Over the years Char worked in nursing homes and most recently in the Worthington School District. There she loved working as a paraprofessional with students at the Worthington High School. She took pride in any job she did and cared deeply for people, especially her students. Char will be remembered for her infectious laugh, strong willed stubbornness and generosity towards others. Her caramel corn, sweet corn, chocolate cake and bars will be missed by many!

      Remembering her always will be her husband Jerry Breuker; son Jedidiah (Kristina) Breuker of Worthington, MN; daughter Kala (Joey) Fischer of New Ulm, MN; and six grandchildren: Amber and Brianna Breuker, Aleigha and Jace Breuker, and Colton and Elijah Fischer. She is also survived by 7 sisters and 4 brothers, many nieces and nephews, and extended family.

      She was preceded in death by her son, Jeremy Breuker; her parents John and Helen Dreesen; grandparents; sister Janola Murra; brother in laws: James Murra and Dennis Bremer; 3 nephews and a grandnephew.

      Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, at 10:00 a.m., at the Worthington Christian Church in Worthington, MN, with Dan Beerman and Doug Roth officiating. Casket bearers will be Matt Bremer, Tamie Bremer, Brandon Dreesen, Tim Hibma, Peter Mayer, and Tomas Nystrom. Honorary bearers will be all of Char’s nieces and nephews, Burger King “The Office” Crew, and Char’s students at WHS. Burial will be in the Sunset Rest Cemetery near Rushmore, MN.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington, MN and also on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., at the Worthington Christian Church.
