Rose Ann Kranski
Rose Ann (Schroedel) Kranski, 89, of Rogers, AR died Thursday, November 30th, at Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville, AR. She is now at peace with her Lord and Savior, and reunited with her beloved husband, Ernest Kranski, of 62 years.
She was born May 25th, 1928, in Portage County, Wisconsin to the late Henry and Lillian Schroedel. Rose Ann was one of 10 children.
She prided herself on being a dutiful wife and mother, considering it to be one of her greatest gifts in life. She faithfully served as the matriarch of the Kranski Clan. Rose Ann took care of the home by tirelessly working with her hands, sewing, cooking, and tinkering around the house fixing things. You could regularly find her putzing in her garden, listening and dancing to Polka music, maintaining the family “grapevine,” or playing a mean game of Canasta. She instilled in her children the importance of family through the gift of a nightly meal around the dinner table.
Her spirited banter and humble generosity will be sorely missed by her 9 children, 22 grandchildren, and 26 great-grandchildren, of which are her 7 daughters: Kathleen (Marvin) Zwiefelhofer of Bella Vista, AR, Jeaneen (Gary) Anderson of Silsbee, TX, Shirley Burdick of Kenosha, WI, Karolyn Spaulding of Bentonville, AR, Kristine (Kevin) Graham of Elkhorn, WI, Susan (David) Castronova of Bentonville, AR, Vicky Kranski of Rogers, AR; and her 2 sons: Ronald (Debby) Kranski of Kaukauna, WI, and Richard Kranski of Centennial, CO. She is also survived by 5 sisters: Delores, Dorothy, Henrietta, Yvonne, Elaine and 2 brothers: Henry and John.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, 1 sister, Bernice, 1 brother, Robert and 2 granddaughters, Michelle and Rebecca.
A mass officiated by Monsignor David LeSieur will be held on Thursday, December 7, at 12:30 P.M. at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Rogers, AR.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her name to Children’s Advocacy Center Of Benton County whose mission is to provide support to abused children and their families which was a cause near and dear to Rose Ann’s heart.
