Yvonne Sharon Kruckenberg, 78, Bismarck, ND, passed away peacefully on February 25, 2019 at Hospice of the Valley in Chandler, AZ.
Sharon was born in Hettinger, ND on 11/17/1940 to Ardwin & Elsie (Weidner) Flemmer and raised in Mercer County. She married Delmar Kruckenberg on 1/31/1958 in Zap, ND. To their marriage, they were blessed with son, Terry and daughters, Julie and Brenda. Terry passed away shortly after birth. Delmar worked in construction, so they moved around, but eventually ended up making their home in Hazen, ND. They moved to Bismarck in 1993 and for the past 16 years have enjoyed spending winter months in Yuma, AZ.
She held various jobs over the years, but staying at home and caring for family was her true passion. She enjoyed cooking, bowling, sewing, playing card games, shopping with her daughters and visiting family and friends. She had a great sense of humor and always dreamed of winning the lottery.
Sharon is survived by her husband of 61 years, Delmar; daughters Julie (Curt) Kittelson, Dickinson, ND and Brenda, Bismarck, ND; grandchildren Nicole (Brian) Seifert, Minot, ND and Eric (Nicole) Kittelson, Dickinson, ND; great-grandchildren Jalyn & Harper Kittelson; brother Riley Flemmer, Preston, ID; sisters Sandy (Wayne) Nelson, Kemmerer, WY and Wanda (Gary) Bues, Logan, UT; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
She was preceded in death by infant son Terry, parents Ardwin & Elsie Flemmer, father-in-law & mother-in-law Gotthilf & Anna Kruckenberg and step mother-in-law Ella Reinhardt Kruckenberg.
A Memorial Service and interment will be held in Bismarck later in the spring.
