LuLu Anna Kieckhaefer, 96
Aug. 20, 1920 — Nov. 11, 2016
LuLu Anna Kieckhaefer (nee Fischer) passed away peacefully into the arms of her Lord on Nov. 11, 2016, to be with her husband, Edward, in Heaven on Veterans Day. LuLu was born in Mequon on Aug. 20, 1920, to Louis and Amanda Fischer. She spent her childhood on the family farm in Mequon. On Dec.
17, 1937, she married Edward Kieckhaefer in Cedarburg at the Church of Advent. Edward served in the United States Army for two years. When he returned, they moved to Mequon and Edward helped with the family farm on Mequon Road. Their son, Curtis, was born March 25, 1939, and their daughter, Barbara, was born Nov. 27, 1947. Curtis passed away April 4, 2011. LuLu spent so much time outside, tending her beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. She canned and froze everything they grew, also making delicious jams and jellies. The farm was sold and they built a lovely home in 1964 on Riverland Road. Then she worked and managed the kitchen at the newly built Homestead High School. She worked there for 10 years.
After retirement Mom and Dad loved selling at flea markets. They enjoyed the selling and meeting people from all over the state. Dad passed away Jan. 20, 2010, at the Lasata Care Center, where he had been for four years. Mom lived next door at the Heights so she could walk over to see him every day. He waited to see her and they would smooch and hold hands (and the nurses would tease them, saying none of that). They were married 72 years when he passed away at 92. Mom moved to the Crossings for a year and then moved to Lasata in 2014 after she fell and broke her hip. She was cared for by all the wonderful nurses and aides at Lasata Care Center. Loving mother of Barbara (Larry) Mallien and the late Curtis Kieckhaefer. Proud grandmother of Bill Morgan, Mike Morgan and Molly Philaja; great-grandmother of Collin Morgan, Liam Morgan, Sara Morgan, James Morgan, Josephine Philaja and Harrison Philaja. She will be sadly missed by all of us.
Funeral Services will be just like Edward’s on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016, at 1 p.m. at Lasata Care Center Chapel, W76 N677 Wauwatosa Road in Cedarburg with Visitation at the chapel from noon until 12:45 p.m. Rev. Philip Hillenbrand will be officiating. Private interment will follow at Graceland Cemetery. Memorials to Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, 11313 N. Riverland Road, Mequon, WI 53092.
