Cyrilla A. (nee Vogt) Thull, 91, of the town of Kewaskum, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2017, at Cedar Lake Health and Rehab in West Bend.
She was born May 2, 1926, in the town of West Bend, the daughter of the late Nick and Helena (nee Jansen) Vogt. On Oct. 18, 1947, she was united in marriage to William F. “Bill” Thull at Holy Angels Catholic Church in West Bend. Bill preceded Cyrilla in death July 16, 2014.
Cryilla was a hardworking farm wife who came from the generation that went through the Great Depression and the Second World War and went from kerosene lanterns to computers. With her husband Bill, she experienced the joys and challenges of farm life and of raising a large family. Along with working on the farm, she worked at Pick Manufacturing, Schloemer Law Office and Cedar Lake Community.
Cryilla was a longtime member of St. Michael Catholic Church, Christian Women’s Club, Homemakers Club, Farm Bureau, 4H-Leader, and an officer for Catholic Foresters.
In her free time, Cryilla enjoyed playing sheepshead with her family, gardening, canning, attending her grandchildren’s activities and baking her famous apple slices. She was a big promoter of her husband’s, children’s, and grandchildren’s bands and music. Cyrilla’s family and extended family will remember her get-it-done attitude, feistiness, devotion to family, love for her family’s polka music, and to her Catholic faith.
