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.
    Mrs. Large was preceded in death by sisters Catherine Meyer and Frances Greengo and brothers Eugene and David Jakubic.
    No funeral services will be held. A family gathering will take place in July.
    Poole Funeral Home of Port Washington is assisting the family.

An avid reader, Lillian Ruth Rozek was halfway through a 1,000-page book when she recently entered the hospital.
    “She always finished her books so she would have regretted not being able to do so with that one — even in that situation,” her son Jeff Rozek said.
    Mrs. Rozek, 93, died Wednesday, June 14, at Lawlis Family Hospice in Mequon from heart failure. She had resided in Saukville since 1999.
    Born Oct. 23, 1923, in Milwaukee to Albin and Anna Plischke Anderson, she helped support her parents through their chronic illnesses. A first-generation American, Mrs. Rozek spoke English, German and Norwegian — her father’s native language — at a young age, often translating letters for her father.
    Despite attending six different schools, she was named to the National Honor Society at Milwaukee’s North Division High School.
    Mrs. Rozek held various office positions before joining Lakeside Labs, where she met her husband Jerry. The couple married May 24, 1947, in Milwaukee and raised a family of three children.
    Mrs. Rozek became a teller at First Wisconsin Bank, where she was promoted to manage large business loan accounts and wire transfers.
    “She was very stylish, always up to date with the fashions,” her son said. “And she had her hair done every Friday because she worked in a professional setting and my parents liked to go out for dinner every weekend.
    “The Colonial House (in Port Washington) was one of their favorites before it closed.”
Mrs. Rozek retired from the bank in 1986 after 22 years and spent her time providing day care to her first grandchild.
    Travels during that time included Spain and Hawaii.
    Mrs. Rozek read two to three books a week her entire life, and her passion for it influenced her family.
    “Because she read so much, she got my dad into it and also the rest of the kids,” her son said.     “She’d read to us as youngsters, and I did the same for my daughter. Her love of reading was definitely passed on.”
    Mrs. Rozek is survived by her sons Jeffrey (Linda) and Richard, both of Saukville; grandchildren Michael (Crystal) and Rebecca Rozek, and one great-grandchild.
    She is preceded in death by her husband Jerry, brothers John “Jack” and Ervin Anderson, sister Myrtle Zimdahl and son Gregory.
    A funeral will be held at at 11 a.m. Friday, June 23, at Chapel of Chimes at Wisconsin Memorial Park in Brookfield, with visitation at 10 a.m. Internment will take place there as well.

Christine J. Radloff was a people person, even as a youngster.
    “I played Santa for 32 years, and for about five years she went along as my special helper,” her father Jim Radloff said. “She was short for her age, so the kids would lock right onto her. They’d see her personality in her eyes, and I didn’t have to say a thing. She knew just what to do.
    “There would even be times I’d have a kid screaming and next thing I knew, she had the child in her hand, ready for a picture.”
    Ms. Radloff, 38, who moved to Port Washington in 1980 and graduated from Port Washington High School in 1988, died unexpectedly at her Milwaukee home on Thursday, June 8.
    She enjoyed swimming, whether as a child or later with her two teenage children.
    “She just called me last week and told me what a great time they were having off the diving boards,” her father said of his daughter and his grandchildren. “It reminded me of all the times we’d swim at the TJ (Thomas Jefferson Middle School) pool.”
    Another favorite spot in Port Washington for Ms. Radloff was “Elephant” Whitefish Park.
    “We’d enjoy lunches there all the time,” her father said.
    Ms. Radloff was born in Wauwatosa on Jan. 26, 1979, to James and Sandra Dobs Radloff.
    Ms. Radloff worked in daycare facilities and became a certified nursing assistant, serving in that capacity for various medical centers in the Milwaukee area.
    Her training helped her monitor the diabetes of her 13-year-old son, her father said.
     Ms. Radloff is survived by her children Alexis Radloff and Cody Mozejewski of Milwaukee and parents Jim and Sandy Radloff of Port Washington.
    She was preceded in death by her grandparents Edward and Lucy Radloff and Ruben and Irene Holz.
    Funeral services were to be held Wednesday, June 14, at Poole Funeral Home in Port Washington. Interment was to be at Union Cemetery in Port Washington.
    Memorials to the family are appreciated.
