Dolores A. Kilsdonk, age 90, of Darboy passed away peacefully on her 90th birthday surrounded by her family on Friday, October 6, 2023 at St. Paul Villa. She was born on October 6, 1933 in the town of Vandenbroek, daughter of the late Edward and Evelyn (Luniak) Sprangers. On June 7, 1955 Dolores married Robert F. Kilsdonk. They were blessed with 4 daughters and 50 years of marriage before Robert preceded her in death on April 24, 2006. Dolores was a very gracious woman, who was generous with her talents and her time, volunteering at church. The farmhands enjoyed eating home-cooked meals at Dolores’ family table. She loved time spent with her grandchildren; wintering in Florida; and spending time at their cottage on Lake Winnebago. She was a creative woman who was known for sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidery, and quilting. She also loved a good card game. Her kind, selfless spirit will be missed by those who love her.
