Issue Date: April 2, 2014
Dorothy M. Cudnohosky, 83, of Coleman, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, March 26.
Born March 20, 1931 in the Town of Brazeau, to the late Paul and Mary (Shehow) Kempky, she married Roy Cudnohosky in 1948 and they built their homestead and family together, sowing the land, tilling the crops and tending the dairy cattle that supported their family. The family shared the work on the farm and in Moms gardens. They weeded, picked, canned, cooked and enjoyed the bounties of their work.
In her youth, she was a member of 4-H and in adult life was a 4-H leader for over 45 years which created life skills for the hands and minds of her children. She was involved in community works, making costumes and doing stage work for musical productions. Her club work affected thousands of area kids and she nutured and loved them all. She enjoyed baking, decorating cakes for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays.
She is survived by three children, Alvin (Donna) Cudnohosky, Coleman, Cheryl (Allen) Mandeville, Green Bay and Connie Schuettpelz (special friend, Ronald Marohl), Gillett; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; a sister, Gloria Kilmer, Pound; nieces; nephews; other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy, an infant daughter, Barbara and a brother, Roy Larry (Mary) Kempky.
The family will greet relatives and friends from 11 a.m. until time of a Memorial Service at 1 p.m. on Saturday April 5 at Rhodes Charapata Funeral Home, Coleman. Rev. Mark Kostreva will officiate with burial at First Baptist Cemetery, Pound. As much as she loved flowers, her wish is that loved ones gather together as a bouquet in her honor.
