Margaret Dorothy was born to Andrew and Jane Konitzer who had 16 children. On July 4, 1936, she married Walter Ostrenga. Following their marriage, they lived in Milwaukee for 36 years until they retired to Kelly Lake near Suring, Wisconsin in 1972 where they owned and operated Wally's Sunset Cottages.
Margaret was a very loving, devoted wife, mother and grandmother, in particular to her special needs son, Jimmy, for the 27 years of his life. Survivors are her husband of 60 years, Walter, daughters Jane, Marilyn, Judith and Peggy.
Margaret went to Jesus on December 9, 1996 following a one year illness with Lou Gerig's disease.
My Grandma loved to crochet blankets for her 17 grandchildren. It was usually a special wedding present she offered. Grandma was a great fisherwoman and card player. There was nobody quite like my Grandma and I miss her laugh and her finger tapping.
My grandfather and my grandmother had a very special love between them. They were married 60 years and celebrated with friends and their huge family every 4th of July. As Grandpa quietly and peacefully passed away with his daughters beside him on the evening of August 1, 2010, just minutes later fireworks were seen in the sky over Kelly Lake. We feel that fireworks were a symbol of Grandma and Grandpa being reunited again since their anniversary is July 4th. Grandma probably greeted him to heaven saying, "What took you so long?"
