Carol L. Large died Saturday, June 17, at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee after complications of surgery.
    The Saukville resident was 77.
    “She was friendly to everyone and known mostly for her cooking,” her husband Dan said. “We were always holding the holidays here and always had a gang — at least 20 people strong.”
    Mrs. Large was born Feb. 28, 1940, in Waukesha, the daughter of Michael and Catherine Weber Jakubic.  
    She grew up in Lannon, later graduating from Menomonee Falls High School.
    On June 27, 1959, she married Daniel W. Large of Milwaukee at St. James Catholic Church in Lannon.  
    For many years, the couple lived in Milwaukee., where Ms. Large worked at Briggs and Stratton. They moved to Saukville in 1970, and Ms. Large worked  at Sprague Electric and Martec Industries in Grafton and Philips Electric in Glendale.
    Mrs. Large made her house a home, her family said. She took great pride in her gardening, crafts and cooking.
    Everyone’s favorites were her chicken dumpling soup, German potato salad and potato pancakes, her husband said.
    “She didn’t give that potato salad recipe to anyone,” he said. “She took it with her.”
    When it came to gardening, she could grow anything, he added. Her rose garden and vegetable garden were her favorite to play on the days when she wasn’t on the lake fishing for crappies and blue gills.
    Mrs. Large’s favorite fishing destinations were Madison or Fox Lake.  In the winter, she loved doing her crafts and going to the casino.
    After retirement, the couple became Arizona snowbirds. When grandchildren arrived, they decided to return to Wisconsin on a year-round basis.
    Mrs. Large’s favorite travel destinations included Florida and Alaska.
    She is survived by her husband Dan; her children Dan (Lori) and Debra Klein, both of Port Washington; grandchildren Molly and Jessy Klein and Olivia and Nolan Large; sisters Josie Reise of St. Germain, June (Don) Stampfl of Sun City, Ariz., Jean Rynaszewski of Grand Marsh, Mary Brodbeck of Gillett and Marty Van Enkenvort of Slinger; and sisters-in-law Lois Letizia of Sun City, Ariz., and Beverly (Henry) Steel of Milwaukee.
