Jeanette was born March 24, 1926, to Charles and Josephine (Ludwig) Osborn in Fond du Lac WI.
She graduated from UW-La Crosse in 1948 and taught for one year before marrying husband Eugene Kruchoski on June 18, 1949. Seven children in the next ten years to follow kept Jeanette forever busy.
Jeanette was a huge fan of working with her hands. She had a gift for baking, was an avid gardener, and was accomplished at both knitting and crocheting. Children and dogs always brought a smile to her face, they were both obvious soft spots in her heart as evident by her generous donations. Jeanette and Eugene enjoyed many international travels throughout the years always bringing home gifts from faraway places for family and friends.
