Theresa Ann Bukolt, 80, of Stevens Point, WI, died Sunday, August 18, 2013 at the Emeritus at Rosyln Long Term Care Community in Denver, Colorado.
Theresa was born May 1, 1933, to the late Henry & Helen (Klish) Przekurat in Stevens Point, WI. She grew up in the Stevens Point area, attended Saint Peters Elementary School, and graduated from Saint Joseph's Academy High School.
Theresa worked at the Hardware Mutual Insurance Company until she married Victor J. Bukolt Jr. on June 13, 1953 at St. Peter Catholic Church in Stevens Point. They were married 57 years until he preceded her in death on November 18, 2010. They shared their home together in Antigo for 33 years. In 2010 Theresa joined the community at the River View Lodge in Stevens Point where she lived until March 2013 before moving to Colorado.
Living according to the principle of "Family First," Theresa and Victor doted on their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as well as, their many nieces and nephews. It would not be uncommon for them to host 20 to 30 people in their home in Antigo on a weekend or holiday to create a festive event to celebrate the gifts of being a family. Together they would make sure they attended every family milestone event, often traveling cross-country, and rarely missed a baptism, first communion, confirmation, graduation, military induction or promotion, and any other significant event in the lives of their loved ones.
Survivors include her son, Victor Bukolt III of Antigo; daughter, Gail (Stephen) Coury of Denver, Colorado; son, Michael (Debbie) Bukolt of Spring Grove, Illinois; daughter Mary (Terry) Foster of Cumming, Georgia; 11 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents, husband (Victor Jr.), sisters Alice (Wade) and Adeline (Barrows), and brother's Eugene and Emil Przekurat, and one daughter-in-law, Kristie Bukolt.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be established in Theresa's name to St. John's Catholic Church in Antigo.
