Jillaine J. Krudwig, 74, a resident of Fond du Lac, passed away on October 8, 2020 at St. Agnes Hospital after a long and courageous battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Jill married the love of her life, Dick Krudwig on June 5, 1965 at St. Mary’s Church in Fond du Lac.

Jill loved being a stay at home mom, taking care of her three children. After raising her children, she went on to work for Mercury Marine for 22 years.
