- Note: Dorothy (Sissy) Handler Kruckeberg was born March 5, 1919 in Neenah, Wi. Sissy was an expressive person who was willing to try new things. She was generous with her time and energy, and an ultimate caregiver. You couldn't walk into her house without being fed. If you needed something she made sure you got it. Her personal initiative, work ethic and energy inspired those around her.
On November 27, 1941 Sissy exchanged wedding vows with Gordon Paul Kruckeberg at St. Patrick's Catholic Church of Menasha, WI. They spent 55 interesting years together before Gord passed away in 1996. Sissy and Gord loved their vacations in Las Vegas and at the cottage in Mountain, WI. In her later years, her favorite places included the cottage in Mountain, WI; going to CA to visit her sister Elaine and snow birding it in FL.
Sissy's "must get it done" attitude and her ability to face any challenge no matter how difficult it might be were tremendous assets that Sissy carried with her into the military. During WWII she was a Navy WAVE . Stationed in Washington D.C, she was in Naval Intelligence and Communications from 1944 to 1945. She became and remained friends with her fellow Navy WAVES and her co-workers throughout the years.
Her favorite pursuits were cleaning, ironing, playing cards and following baseball and the Packers. Cleaning and specifically ironing was therapy for her. Her house always sparkled. Her floors were so clean you could eat off of them. She was often late because she had one more floor to vacuum, one more table to dust, or one more load of laundry to do.
She was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Menasha, WI all her life, St. Michael's Chapel in Mountain, WI for 40 years, and Lady of the Lakes in Deltona, FL for 9 years. During that time, she was praying for us heathens and called upon Judas Priest when frustrated.
In retirement, she found new pleasure in reading, word finds, jigsaw puzzles, and finding new authors. There was continued fulfillment in cleaning and playing more cards. She is the only person we knew who could fall asleep during a card game and still win. She was often heard complaining about losing while raking in the cash. When teased she would state "just never you mind." Sissy continued to stay in touch with her old friends while making plenty of new friends/acquaintances. She was active and felt fulfilled.
Sissy passed away on January 4, 2011 at West Volusia Hospice, Deltona, FL. Though her spirit was as strong as always, her body just finally gave out after 92 years of living. She finally listened to Gordy saying, "Damn it Sissy, get up here". She is survived by her daughter Penny (husband Donald (Butch)) Kaufert; her granddaughters Dawn (husband Geoffrey) Batty and Deneen (Deedee) Kaufert all of Deltona, Fl; her sister Shirley Reichelt, Menasha and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceeded in death by her husband Gordon, her brother Thomas Handler and sisters, LaVergne Julius, Audrey Lewis, and Elaine Handler. Father David Barrett will officiate at a gathering of family and friends to celebrate her life at 11:00am, Friday, July 8 at St. Michael's Chapel, north of Suring and the junction of Hyw 32 & 64. Sissy will be laid to rest Monday, July 11 in St. Margaret Mary Cemetery in Neenah, WI next to her husband.
For Dorothy H. Kruckeberg, the fun of living her life could be found in the challenge. Sissy was a classic, One of a Kind.
