Amy Krieser, 62, Mayville
Amy B. Krieser, 62, Mayville, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018.
Amy was born Oct. 26, 1956, the daughter of Lawrence and Katherine (nee Bachhuber) Krieser in Waupun.
Amy was a 1974 graduate of Mayville High School. Amy loved to work. She owned and operated the Texaco Station and held titles such as cemetery caretaker, golf club caretaker, school bus driver, dump truck driver, meat market worker, bartender and most recently, forklift driver. Amy would help anyone with any projects they had and wasn’t afraid to try anything. She loved Mayville and was very active in the community. She made sure the train in Foster Park was up every year for the Festival of Lights and was instrumental in starting the first Audubon Days Parade and keeping our local establishments open.
She loved to play baseball, sheepshead and was an avid golfer. From 1976 to 2007, Amy held the Mayville Golf Club Woman’s Championship title 16 times. She was also received the Mayville Athletic Booster Club “Katie” Award in 1987. Amy was an excellent cook and randomly dropped off meals at the homes of friends and family. She loved people and was the most social person ever. She would lend a helping hand to anyone. Punctuality was not one of Amy’s strong traits. If you had plans with Amy at 4 p.m. it was usually 7 p.m. before it happened, and then she’d say, “Well I saw so and so or I had to stop here quick.”
Amy leaves behind her soul sister, Mary (Dan) Halfman of Fond du Lac; siblings, Pat (Dave) Shikoski of Fond du Lac, Andy (Cindy) Krieser of Mayville, Michele (Supe) Krieser of Mayville, Cindy (Munch) Mike Woods of Coram, Montana, Kurt (Marcia) Krieser of Mayville, and Molly (Hans) Henkel of Mayville; brother-in-law, Gene Wendorff of West Bend; nieces and nephews, Roxanne (Lionel) Williams of Sacramento, California, Timothy Wendorff (Amber), Kelly (Colleen) Wendorff all of Hartford, Shelly (Kyle) Kosin of Elmwood, Sara (Danny) Decker of Mayville, godson Kory (Alison) Krieser of Glenview, Texas, John (Luzy) Krieser of West Allis, Jadie (James) Lee of Elburn, Illinois, Caitlin Woods of Coram, Montana, Melissa Reck of Columbia, South Carolina, Kyle (Abby) Henkel of Mayville; and her sassy dog, Sadie. She is also survived my many great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and friends everywhere.
Amy was preceded in death by her parents, Hank and Jean, both in 2007; her sister, Kit in 2000; maternal and paternal grandparents.
