Mary Kay C.
Mary Kay C. Hauke (Nee Kreier)
Of Cudahy passed away on Nov. 26, 2020 at the age of 66 years. Mary Kay was born and raised in Cudahy, WI by her loving parents Ervin (Obbie) and Ruthanne Kreier alongside her younger brother Jay Kreier. Mary Kay went on to marry the love of her life and the luckiest man in the world, Philip Hauke. Mary Kay and Phil shared 46 years of marriage, filled with more love and laughter than you can imagine. In addition to being a loving wife and Phil’s best friend, Mary Kay was also the proud mother of Nathan (Jamie) Hauke and sharing two beloved grandchildren, Nina and Hannah. She was the proud aunt of her nieces and nephew, but a special place in her heart belonged to Erin Krueger who she always considered as her niece / daughter, she loved her endlessly. Mary Kay was a friend to many and the caretaker of our family; she took care of everyone and everything. Mary Kay cared just as much for her customers and community, she involved herself in numerous charities behind the scenes. Mary Kay was the proud business owner of Kreier’s Hair Quarters for 36 years, carrying on a 90 yearlong family legacy. Kreier’s Hair Quarters was known for much more than haircuts, it was known for its people – if you were a customer or employee, you were family. Through her work Mary Kay made a profound impact on her community and formed many lifelong friendships along the way. After her retirement in 2017, you could find her at her happy place, Willow Mills campground – where you might catch her partaking in “Christmas in July” or golf carting around with her girlfriends. No matter where she was or who she was with, Mary Kay’s personality and laughter always filled the room – boy we miss that laugh. So, while our gatherings may be smaller and quieter, we find comfort in knowing the love she had for all her family, sister in laws, brother in laws and those who have preceded her in death, as she is now comforted within their arms. The family will have a memorial gathering for all in the spring of 2021.
