    She was born on Nov. 23, 1922, in Tennyson, daughter of William "Bill" and Adeline (Meoska) Kerkenbush.
    She married the love of her life, Virgil "Jim" Droessler, on Nov. 25, 1941, at St. Thomas Catholic Church, Potosi; our father, Jim, preceded her in death on Sept. 29, 2005. They were married for 631/2 years. As their children, we always knew the love they had for each other. That was a wonderful way to be brought up.
    Ginny was a very hardworking farm wife and still always found time to take care of Dad's plastering business accounts. She was a wonderful and loving mother to her eight children, and a precious, gentle mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a special sister to her brothers, sisters, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and her many friends. She always had gentle words and a gentle way of helping any of us when we needed anything and never said an unkind word about anyone.
    She was a member of the Immaculate Conception Parish Ladies Sodality. Her faith and love for Jesus brought her through many obstacles in her life. She instilled the faith of God in all of us, which we will carry with us throughout our lives and her grandchildren's lives.
    She loved her children and in-laws and always said they were perfect. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved when she could spend time with them. She always said each one of them was her favorite and always was throwing holy water their way to protect them.
    Ginny had a very special bond with her brothers and sisters, taking yearly vacations to Michigan and up north. No matter where they went, she was so happy just to be together with them. Her children were very fortunate to be able to spend time with them on those special vacations.
    She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. She was the center of our family circle and will remain in the center of our family because she will be in our hearts forever.
    Surviving are her children, Judy (Bob) Kaiser, Richard "Dick" (Barb) Droessler and Sandy (Roger) Hughes, all of Cuba City, Larry (Susan) Droessler and Steve (Penny) Droessler, both of Platteville, Kay (Greg) Runde and Kelly (John) Jansen, both of Cuba City; 25 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren; sisters, Betty Lindecker and Marie (Fens) Capesius, both of Dubuque; and brothers, Alfred (Erma) Kerkenbush, of Dubuque, and Roger (Frankie) Kerkenbush, of Monroe, Mich.
