Mildred Kauitzsch

March 30, 1926July 9, 2019

Mildred Christianson Kauitzsch, age 93, passed away on Wednesday, July 9th, 2019. She was born on March 30th, 1926, in Hamilton, Texas to Alfred and Lena Christianson. Mildred graduated from Pottsville High School and married the love of her life, Cecil A. Kauitzsch, in 1943 whom she would be married to for 74 years before his passing in 2017. Mildred lived most of her life in Hamilton County, except for her time living overseas in Kyoto, Japan while her husband served as a pilot in WWII. After returning to Texas, Mildred was a homemaker before gaining employment as an administrative assistant in the medical field in the 1960s. Mildred’s faith was mighty and was a proud member of St. John Lutheran Church. Mildred reveled in life’s simplest pleasures such as entertaining friends and family around her kitchen table, cooking with fresh produce from her garden, and sewing. Her sons Mike and Gary Kauitzsch can be quoted by saying, “She was the best cook in Hamilton County.” Mildred lived her 93 years as a devoted wife, a loving mother, and as a loyal friend to all she met. Mildred is survived by her sister, Charlie Krueger of Fort Worth, Texas, son Mike Kauitzsch and daughter-in-law Kellie Kauitzsch of Sunnyvale, Texas, son Gary Kauitzsch and daughter-in-law Suzanne Kauitzsch of Garland, Texas. In addition, she is also survived by her four grandchildren Steve Kauitzsch and wife Pecca Kauitzsch, Donna Rickets and husband Lance Rickets, Aaron Kauitzsch and wife Krista Kauitzsch and Lindsey Kauitzsch. Mildred is also survived by six great grandchildren Lauren and Michael Yates, Collin and Campbell Kauitzsch, Nolan and Knox Kauitzsch, as well as one great great grandchild, Emma Yates, and several nieces and nephews.
