Doris Pearl Gangler, 97, Kenosha, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 14, 2022, at Brookdale Kenosha.
Doris was born in Chicago, Illinois, on March 9, 1924, to the late Morton and Fanny (Wolf) Getz.
She was a cartographer during World War II and enjoyed working in millinery at Marshall Fields in downtown Chicago.
She married Robert E. Gangler, Sr. in Chicago on December 31, 1951. He died in 1995.
In 1956, they purchased a 70-acre farm in Kenosha. Ganglers’ Egg Ranch, known for their exceptional quality, provided AAA eggs to many Kenosha stores and restaurants. The former farm is now a subdivision on the west side. The Ganglers donated Gangler Park to the city.
Later in life, Doris moved to Milwaukee. She loved dancing and going on cruises with her partner, David Blonien, of Milwaukee, now deceased. They met at a dance.
Doris is survived by her children, Linda (James) Burch of Portland, OR; Robert (Janet) Gangler of Madison, WI; and Scott Gangler of San Diego, CA; and her grandchildren, Ryan Thorn, Nathan (Shannon) Gangler, Joseph (Amanda) Gangler, and Luke Gangler.
She was preceded in death by her husband Robert; her partner, David Blonien; and her parents, Morton and Fannie Getz.
The family would like to give special thanks to Jody Sadlon, Terri Rieker, and Jane Cesario at Brookdale as well as Hospice Alliance for their excellent care of Doris.
At her request, there will be no service or visitation.
