Obituary for Dorothy M. Brickl (Feiner)

Dorothy  M. Brickl (Feiner)
Dickeyville, Wisconsin

Dorothy M. (Feiner) Brickl, 97, of Dickeyville, Wisconsin, died Wednesday, November 8, 2017, at Luther Manor in Dubuque, Iowa. Services will be 11:00 a.m. Monday, November 13, 2017, at Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Dickeyville with Rev. Bernard Rott officiating. Burial will be in the church cemetery. Friends may call from 2-5 p.m. Sunday at Casey Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Cuba City where the parish rosary will be at 1:45 p.m. Friends may also call from 9:30-10:45 a.m. Monday at the church before the service.

Dorothy was born on September 11, 1920, in Spring Green, Wisconsin, to Frank and Amelia (Gruber) Feiner. She was the oldest of 12 siblings. Dorothy was raised on the family farm in rural Spring Green, was a member of St. Luke's Catholic Church, and attended a one-room school house down the gravel road from her family farm.

Dorothy and Mark Brickl were married in November 1939, and raised a family of five girls and one boy. Throughout their life together they ran their business endeavors.

Most importantly, Dorothy was a strong, loving and independent woman. Her legacy includes her own personal autobiography written in 2003 and gifted to her children for Mother's Day that same year. Dorothy and Mark funded the first kindergarten at Holy Ghost School in Dickeyville. She was an avid reader and established the current state of the art Brickl Memorial Library in Dickeyville.

Dorothy loved to sew and enjoyed making hundreds of quilted mission blankets. Gardening was Dorothy's passion. She had a lovely garden not only at home but also at the grotto. She donated hundred's of plants to the Holy Ghost Church sales. Her friends lovingly called her "the plant lady."

Dorothy was a world traveler on the continents of Africa, North and South America, Europe and Australia. Many trips consisted of high adventure, including peacock bass fishing on the Amazon River in Peru and an African safari in Kenya.

She is survived by her daughters, Phyllis Miletto, of LaCrosse, WI, Carole Vaassen, of East Dubuque, IL, Alice (James) Timmerman, of Eldridge, IA, and Betty (Tom) Kerkenbush, of Platteville, WI; three sisters, Sister Pauline Feiner S.D.S., Geraldine Frank and Virginia Altenbach; two brothers, Valentine Feiner and Delmar Feiner,; fifteen grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Mark, in 1998; a son, Robert, in 1997; a daughter, Charlene Gabriel, in 1982; a grandson, Gary Timmerman in 1984; and two sons-in-law, Richard Miletto in 2013 and Jerome Vaassen in 2013.

In lieu of plants and flowers memorials may be given to the Brickl Memorial Library in Dickeyville and/or Holy Ghost Church/School in Dickeyville.
