Wanda and Glen Kramer


Wanda Louise Kramer passed away on Monday, Jan. 10, 2022, at the age of 96.

Wanda worked outside the home briefly but spent her entire life supporting the works of her husband. Wanda was the oldest living sibling of her family at the time of passing.

Her husband of 76 years, Glen Milford Kramer, passed 19 hours later on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022, at the age of 95 in the home of their son, Rick, and wife, Sandi, of Cleveland.

Glen and Wanda had one son, Rick, and eight great-grandchildren. Rick and his wife Sandi have four children; Ryan, Lacey, Brandon and King; and eight grandchildren: Jeremiah, Jordan, Journey, Hailey, Hannah, Truly, Shepherd and Sunday.

Glen and Wanda spent most of their lives residing in Illinois, where Glen pastored numerous churches throughout the state for the Church of God before refocusing his attention to students in the Illinois education system.

Glen retired many years later from teaching only to be asked to rejoin his earlier years of service in ministry, but through the Assemblies of God Organization. Glen loved to teach the Bible and the message of salvation through Jesus. His legacy continues.

Wanda had two brothers and one sister, all of whom passed years ago. One of her brothers died in World War II.

Glen had 10 brothers and sisters, all of whom passed before him. His only living sister died recently at the age of 92 and was buried on the day Glen passed.

The interment will follow at 2 p.m. Friday at Chattanooga National Cemetery.

The family will receive friends from 10 a.m. until noon Friday, at the funeral home.
