Bill and Jane Cruckson lived full and loving lives. They were married for 60 years, had 4 daughters, 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
They were from Wisconsin and loved to travel, so much so that once the girls left home, they bought an 18-wheeler, living in it and working for 15 years.
They established a retirement home back in the area where they both grew up and where they had good friends, lots of extended family and a wonderful community. They were strong supporters of their local American Legion and Vets, their small public library, and their Congregational church.
Initially Bill didn’t want a grave or marker until he and his brother began to research their ancestors and realized that their searches often began with information from a headstone. They wanted future family who may come looking to be able to make their connections.
There were two reasons Bill and Jane, both, gave their bodies to science. They believed the price of death was too expensive and pointless to put that much money into the ground. They both had their share of major medical experiences and giving of themselves for the future of others was a way to give back.
They lived their lives the way they wanted.
They loved and were loved.
They cared and were cared for by so many.
They are remembered and missed.
