In Memory of Janice Kitzke
Janice (Kahler) Kitzke was born on September 23, 1943 in Black Creek, WI. She was baptized in the Christian Faith at Immanuel Lutheran in Black Creek. She had a lovely country childhood filled with beautiful memories of playing with her siblings, cousins, and friends. Jan graduated from Hortonville High School. She later went on to take college courses after retirement. After high school, Jan moved to Milwaukee Wisconsin. She met her husband, Richard, at an airline training class in 1968. The two enjoyed their travels. They married in 1971, and moved to Minnesota. They had their first daughter, Sarah, there and both continued working in the airline industry in Minneapolis. They relocated back to Wisconsin in the early eighties and lived in Green Bay. There they had their second daughter, Jennifer. The family created many memories with large family gatherings and celebrations.
Following retirement from Northwest Airlines, Jan and Richard and their family relocated to Florida in 2001 and became members of Peace Lutheran Church. There, Jan enjoyed fellowship and worship and made many friends. She loved to cook and bake. She enjoyed having company at her Florida home, and visiting Wisconsin in the summer. She was active with her friends, her church family, and her children. She enjoyed her travels, including many cruises!
