Kathryn L. Jasinski
Feb. 13, 1930 — Jan. 26, 2018
Kathryn L. Jasinski (nee Swan) peacefully entered into heaven on Friday, January 26, 2018, at the age of 87 to join her husband of 57 years, Thomas R. Jasinski, and dear sister Donna J. Riedel.
She was the loving mother of Richard (Pamela) Jasinski, Jeffrey (Barbra) Jasinski, and Sandra (Brian) Staffeldt, and proud grandma of Dustin Staffeldt, Derek Staffeldt and Thomas J. Jasinski. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews, other relatives, and very many friends.
Born February 13, 1930, to Wilbur and Elizabeth Swan in North Prarie, Kay spent the majority of her life residing in Waukesha, with stops in North Lake, Eagle and Whitewater (where she attended Whitewater State Teachers College, now known as UW-Whitewater). She met Tom, the love of her life, on a St. Patrick’s Day date. They married on December 27, 1952, and raised their three children in Waukesha. Kay was quite athletic, and she enjoyed schooling her grandsons at H-O-R-S-E in the driveway, as well as enjoying both bowling and golf well into her eighth decade. Kay retired after spending 19 years as an administrative assistant for Ruekert & Mielke, and remained active and fully independent for the rest of her days.
There will be a time of gathering on Sunday, February 4 at Church and Chapel Funeral Home, 380 Bluemound Road (at highways J and JJ, four blocks south of Interstate 94), Waukesha, from 11 a.m. until the time of the memorial service at 1 p.m.
To honor her three granddogs (Timone, Shadow and Sadie) as well as canine friends with her in heaven, memorial gifts are suggested to the Humane Animal Welfare Society/ Waukesha County Animal Shelter.
