Obituary for Dorothy Gladys Deringer (Kaun)

Dorothy Gladys  Deringer (Kaun)
Dorothy G. Deringer, age 94, of Janesville died on Monday, March 26, 2018 at her home. She was born in Loganville, WI on July 19, 1923, the daughter of the late William and Ella (Gade) Kaun. Dorothy graduated from high school, and she later married Glenn J. Deringer on September 1, 1947 in West Allis, WI. He predeceased her on March 30, 1992. Dorothy was a very active and devoted member of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church for many years. Over the years, Dorothy did babysitting, waitressing, and worked as a sales clerk and doing alterations at JC Penney. She also owned her own upholstering business for over 20 years, bringing life back to worn out furniture. Dorothy was a very active and independent woman, who enjoyed water walking at the YMCA, participating in all the activities where she lived, as well as playing pinochle with her friends. She was a very active volunteer in the community, putting her talents to use at the Literacy Council, ECHO, River Place Apartments, and her church for decades.

She is survived by her two children, Carol (James) Schmeling of Janesville and William (Darla) Deringer of Novi, MI; grandchildren and great-grandchildren who she adored: Bradley (Christy) Deringer of Novi, MI and their son: Jon; Sara (Jamey Kohorst) Deringer-Kohorst of Holt, MI and their children: Asher and Scarlett; and Dr. Tamara (Dr. Russell) Grant of York, United Kingdom. She is further survived by her sisters, Leona Jones of Janesville and Arlene Peterson of Tacoma, WA; her sisters -in-law, Louise Kaun of Loganville, WI and Jenny Kaun of Reedsburg, WI; her very special friends and pinochle players: Betty, Pat, Glenis and Pat; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by her granddaughter, Melissa Schmeling; brothers: Edmund, Harold, Paul, Alfred, Alvin, Robert, William, and Richard; and her brother-in-law, Evan Jones.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church with Rev. David Bergelin officiating. Burial will be at Milton Lawns Memorial Park. Visitation will be on Monday from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Whitcomb – Lynch Funeral Home and again on Tuesday from 10 a.m. until the time of the service at the church. Memorials would be greatly appreciated if they were made to Agrace HospiceCare or ECHO.
A very warm and heartfelt thank you to the staff at Agrace HospiceCare, the yellow team, especially Sunny, Shannon, and Karen, for the wonderful care, compassion and support given to Dorothy so she could remain in her home during her final journey. Also thank you to her Mt. Calvary family, her water walking friends at the YMCA, and everyone at River Place Apartments for the love and support extended to Dorothy and her family.
