|Marie and Tiny, May 1993|
As a five years old, it was strange when the other kids in my class were a little afraid of the teacher but she was just Marie to me, nothing to fear. As an eighth grader, remembering to say Miss Krueger instead of Tiny was a challenge.
Marie was born on 14 Sep 1915 in Mt. Vernon, Kentucky, the second child of August Krueger and Susie Taylor. Tiny was the youngest of their four children, born on 21 Feb 1922 in Mt. Vernon.

On 23 Nov 1955, Marie married Henry Houston Cox, son of Edward Cox and Mattie McFerron, in Rockcastle County. Tiny never married. Neither of them had children.

Marie died on 10 November 1993 in Lexington, Kentucky. Tiny died on 27 Oct 1998 in Mt. Vernon. They were both buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Mt. Vernon.
Marie and Tiny were outstanding teachers. Over the course of their long careers, they had an enormous positive impact on Mt. Vernon students.
