Sieglinde Skowronek "Siggy" Siggy, born September 26, 1925 in Leipzig, Germany, went back to her beginnings, peacefully Saturday June 25, 2005. Siggy was the "ironing queen" from Sugarhouse for more than 40 years. She was loved by many for her hard work and her delicious German food. Siggy leaves behind her four children Christine, Reinhard, Ralph, and Charlie; her 10 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by our father, Hans Skowronek; her beloved father, Erich Klappenbach, who received her at her passing; and her dear partner, Hank Pruett. We want to especially thank our beloved friend, Scott Barnum, for taking care of our beloved mother and for being our dear friend until the end. A celebration for Siggy will be held Wednesday June 29, 2005 at Larkin Sunset Lawn Chapel, 11 a.m., where family and friends may call one hour prior to services.
