Kathleen M. Kessler of Muskego died on Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2016, at Aurora Zilber Family Hospice at the age of 68. She was born in Milwaukee on May 18, 1948, the daughter of Henry and Esther (nee Koss) Greskowiak.

Kathleen enjoyed many years volunteering at the Milwaukee County Zoo.

She loved gardening and birding, often visiting the Domes and Whitnall Park.

Not only a zealous cook but she was an avid Wisconsin foodie. She had a fondness for history. She was a fanatical reader, patronizing the library often.

She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Tracy Kittell, and her granddaughter, Nina Kittell, both of Waupun. She is further survived by her sister, Donna (George) Cyra of West Allis, along with other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 25 years, Avery Kessler, and her parents.

Honoring her wishes, no services will be held.
