Rosa E. Krissek, Age: 96
Dec 30, 1922 -- Mar 30, 2019

Rosa E. (Abbott) Krissek, 96, formerly of Leawood, Shawnee, and Kansas City, KS, died Saturday, March 30, 2019, in Dublin, OH.

She was born December 30, 1922, in Cincinnati, OH, the only child of Thomas and Minnie Abbott, who brought her to Kansas City in 1924.  She graduated from St. Mary College, Leavenworth, with a degree in chemistry.  In 1946 she married Walter Krissek, who preceded her in death in 2001.  She was an active volunteer at Cathedral of St. Peter’s grade school and Altar Society, a Cub Scout Den Mother, and a volunteer for 14 years at West Wyandotte County Library.  In 2004, she moved to Dublin, OH.

She sought to live a life characterized by independence and self‑sufficiency.  She found great comfort and support in her faith, her husband, and her family, and she enjoyed the activities of being a homemaker.

Mrs. Krissek is survived by her three sons, Thomas J. Krissek (Donna), Grayslake, IL, Lawrence A. Krissek (Debra), Ostrander, OH, and Gregory P. Krissek (Beth), Manhattan, KS; a sister-in-law, Dorothy Koska, Washington, D.C.; five grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and one niece.

Visitation will be from 9:30 to 10:30 am Monday, April 8, at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Kansas City, KS, followed by funeral liturgy.  Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery in Lenexa.
