Independence

Roland G. Kulig, 86, of Independence, died peacefully surrounded by his family on Saturday, December 2, 2023, at the Grandview Care Center in Blair under the care of St. Croix Hospice.

Roland was born on the farm on February 22, 1937, to William and Julia (Kwosek) Kulig. He attended schools in Independence into high school until a fire destroyed their family’s home and Roland then stayed on the farm to work full time. Shortly after school, he worked briefly in Chicago before returning home to work back on the farm.  He met the love of his life, Doris Siverling, and the couple was united in marriage on September 28, 1963, at the Drywood Catholic Church, rural Cadott. Together the couple was blessed with 60 years of marriage and raised 6 children on the farm. In his spare time, Roland enjoyed fishing, bowling, going to numerous tractor pulls, area auctions, and various sporting events to watch his children and grandchildren. He traveled many miles in all types of weather to show support to his family, and loved going on baseball trips. He was a member of S.S. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and will always be remembered for his strong faith and devotion to his family.
