Delores (Harms) Kroll
Delores Ethel Kroll, age 88, passed away peacefully Sunday morning, January 27th, 2019 at the Pine Haven Christian Community in Sheboygan Falls, WI. Delores was born on September 17th, 1930 on her grandparents’ farm in the Town of Mackford in Green Lake County, WI, just south of the City of Markesan. Delores was the daughter of Clarence Harms and Mildred (Albright) Harms. At the age of 3 she moved to the City of Sheboygan with her parents. She grew up in Sheboygan, attending local schools and churches; graduating in 1949 from Sheboygan Central High School. In 1951, through her involvement in the Immanuel Lutheran Church choir, she toured the western U.S. as part of the Lutheran Chorus of Sheboygan. The 18-day 5,000 mile tour was one of her fond memories.
On August 29th of 1953 Delores was united in marriage to Loren O. Kroll at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Sheboygan. She worked for the Sheboygan Branch of the Milwaukee Cheese Company from 1956 to 1962 and then took time off to raise her two sons. She went back to work for the Milwaukee Cheese Company in 1968 until 1974, when she began working at the office of the Teamster’s Union Local 56/75 in Sheboygan until her retirement in 1991. She was an active member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Sheboygan and was very strong in her Christian faith. Delores was a truly kind person, and maintained many life-long friendships. Delores lived in her home in Sheboygan until July of 2017 when she transitioned into assisted living at Pine Haven.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and by her husband, Loren, who died on November 18th of 2009. She is survived by her sons, Jay (Marie Anacker) Kroll and Kevin Kroll, by her only granddaughter Allie Kroll, and by her younger brother Ronald (Nancy) Harms – all of Sheboygan.
