Marcia Kufalk, age 87, died peacefully on January 10, 2018, at the Congregational Home in Brookfield. She was born in Mukwonago on October 3, 1930, the daughter of Walter and Ruth Stoecker.
Marcia and Warren Kufalk married on February 14, 1951, and were lifelong residents of Mukwonago and members of the First Congregational Church. For many years, Marcia lived with grace as she accepted the limitations of her life with Alzheimer’s disease.
Marcia’s passion was raising her family of five children. She was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother. Marcia loved to cook for her family, and enjoyed being a homemaker. The family took many camping trips and vacationed “Up North” at the family cottage. As the children grew, she spent her time sewing and making beautiful craft items which she shared with her family and friends. Later, Warren and Marcia were avid travelers to many states, national parks and ocean cruises.
Marcia is survived by her husband, Warren; brother Rex (Joan) Stoecker; daughters Cheryl (Bill) Miller, Karen (Dave) Jones and
Lisa Gartner (Ken Maki); and sons Brian (Barb) Kufalk and Darrell (Nora) Kufalk. Her grandchildren include Josh (Liz) Sommers, Michael (Carine) Sommers, Jenna (Dustin) Stier, Brad (Kathleen) Kufalk, Ben Kufalk, Steven Jones, Bailey and Olivia Gartner, and five great-grandchildren, Parker, Emery, Cooper, Francesca and Willow.
She was preceded in death by her parents and son-inlaw, Charlie Gartner.
A visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 17, at First Congregational Church, 231 Roberts Drive, Mukwonago, from 10 a.m. until the time of a funeral service at 11 a.m., followed by a luncheon at the church. A private burial will be at Oak Knoll Cemetery.
Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at the Congregational Home in Brookfield for the excellent care Marcia received the past several years, and to Seasons Hospice for their wonderful support.
