Obituary for Darlene D. Kurtz
Darlene Elsie Kurtz was born in Cushing, WI, on January 22, 1929, the oldest of four children, to Jess Reynold Nick and Mary O’Delia (nee Hamble) Nick. She passed away peacefully at the Osceola Medical Center on May 29, 2008, comforted by family members at the age of 79 years, 4 months and 7 days. She joined God’s family and was baptized and confirmed at the First Lutheran Church in Cushing. In her childhood she attended the Cushing School. She was united in marriage to August Gotlieb Kurtz on June 12, 1946, at the Cushing Lutheran Parsonage. To this union five children were born: son, Fred and daughters, Lavonne (Bonnie), Katherine, Irene and Jane. Husband, August and Darlene farmed in Eureka Township and the Cushing area most of their lives, an occupation they both loved. She loved gardening, canning her own food, baking, and being with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Upon their retirement in the early 1990’s August and Darlene then moved to Milltown, WI, where they resided until their deaths. August passed away peacefully on November 10, 1996. During her school years she was taught to spell her name as “Darlayne”, which she was known by her entire life; it wasn’t until recently that she knew her birth name as Darlene. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jess and Mary; brother, Floyd; husband, August; and daughter, Bonnie. Darlene is survived by her brother, Henry (Hank) Nick and his wife Lois; sister, Corrine Larson; son, Fred and his wife Delores; daughters, Katherine Owen and her husband Sam Sr., Irene Kurtz, and Jane Meyer and her husband Dennis; 14 grandchildren; 26 great grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and other beloved friends and relatives. Services were held at the First Lutheran Church of Cushing on June 2, 2008, officiated by Pastor Amy Hessel. Music was provided by organist, Carol Medchill. Interment was at Wolf Creek Cemetery, where she will rest in peace beside her beloved husband, August and daughter, Bonnie Kaldenberg. Casket bearers were grandsons, Scott Kurtz, Gary Owen, Sam Owen, Jr., Andy Meyer, Damian Hughes and Richard Loomis. Rowe Funeral Home of Luck, WI, was entrusted with arrangements.
