Sandra was born December 24, 1943 to Harvey and Irene (Bours) Hausner in Milwaukee. She was united in marriage to Francis Kraemer on January 3, 1961 in Milwaukee.
Sandra was a very loving and caring person and was always there for others. She enjoyed taking care of others and was a caregiver her entire life. She was a talented seamstress and made several dresses and other clothes for her kids. She also enjoyed crocheting afghans, shopping and baking Russian tea cakes. Her favorite holidays were Christmas and Halloween because they had the best candy. Sandra had a special love for dark chocolate and enjoyed it whenever she had a chance. Her favorite candy was Russel Stover whipped cream eggs. Sandra was an avid Packer fan and enjoyed watching the games; especially her favorite player Clay Matthews. In her younger years, she enjoyed taking the kids to Brewer games and circuses. She also had fond memories of marching in the parades as a kid in Milwaukee.
