Obituary for Dolly Kretsch

January 25, 1933 - February 28, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 85


Veronica (Dolly) Gruenberg Kretsch died peacefully on February 28th in Austin, TX at the age of 85.

Dolly is survived by her children Michael Kretsch, Kathleen Hopke, and Steven Kretsch as well as 7 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Dolly was born on January 25, 1933 in New Jersey. She graduated from Hawthorne (NJ) High School in 1951 and received a nursing degree at Englewood Nursing School. She married Albert (Al) Kretsch, her high school sweetheart in 1954. They lived in Hawthorne and Glen Rock in New Jersey before moving to Marietta, GA where Dolly lived for 34 years. After 50 years of marriage Al passed away and Dolly relocated to Austin.

Dolly's life was dedicated to helping others. She loved the Lord and had an amazing faith that shined through in all she did. She brought others joy, laughter, and healing while volunteering at church, the adoption agency, the drug center, Mission:Hope (R.O.W.), the Clark Howard Show, participating in kid's activities, cooking for others, and caring for countless patients in her nursing career. Her love, sense of humor, and generous spirit, will be greatly missed.

A funeral is scheduled for 2 pm on April 8th at Eastminster Presbyterian Church, 3125 Sewell Mill Rd, Marietta, GA 30062. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Dolly's life.
