GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club is in mourning over the recent passing of its past President Edwina R. Kraemer. Mrs. Kraemer is well-known throughout the community as a long-time educator, a church woman in her beloved (fabulous) First Methodist Church of Lutz, and as a very active club member/officer serving the Lutz-Land O’Lakes communities and well beyond. Edwina Kraemer is most remembered for her laser-like commitment to fundraising on behalf of her beloved Canine Companions for Independence. She was very successful in raising thousands of dollars on behalf of this charity and received a WEDU Community Service Award this past spring. Most importantly, Edwina was a loving and devoted wife to David Kraemer surviving her, mother to her most beloved son, S. Keith Vickery, his wife Pam, and dear granddaughter, Gwen.
The Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club will long remember Edwina for her strong work ethic, organizational skills and commitment to service as well as her quiet and dignified demeanor. The Woman’s Club will celebrate her life with the upcoming annual “Bow Wow” fundraiser event which she had long conducted, however this time and henceforth, it will be named “In Honor of Edwina R. Kraemer.” We thank you, Edwina, for all you’ve contributed to the Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club and the community over your many years of service. We will miss you, our dear friend and club sister.
