Obituary for Sandra Kay Prucnal

Sandra Kay Prucnal joined the Heaven Father on December 5, 2023. She was born on March 23, 1958 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Celia Jean (Lyss) and Robert Dean Schallow, though she grew up in Sussex, Wisconsin. A graduate of Hamilton High School, she continued her education with an Associates of Practical Theology from Christ for the Nations Institute, and a license of Practical Nursing from Milwaukee Area Technical Institute. Though she devoted her life to the love and care of her family, she enjoyed working with a small nonprofit, helping disabled young adults to craft ceramic Christmas ornaments. Sandra longed to be a nurse in the mission field, though she lost her sight. She was diagnosed with diabetes at the young age of eight years old. The middle child between two brothers and two sisters – she of course had a bedroom to herself. Sandra played on the church girls baseball team before losing her sight and worked at a couple of restaurants and a nursing home while attending school. Her family lovingly remembers a time when she carried her youngest brother, who had hurt his foot, about a mile while on vacation. She devoted her life to the service of others.

A devoted wife and loving mother, Sandra became the beloved bride of Lance John Prucnal and the couple enjoyed three children – Charity, Chastity, and Caleb, and 40 love filled years together. She cherished her role as grandmother to her two grandchildren – Ethan and Elizabeth. Sandra lived a Christ centred life and instilled those principles in her family. The consummate homemaker, she lovingly prepared sandwiches, snacks, and chocolate pudding cookies for their family vacations. Listening to Adventures in Odyssey by Focus on the Family while they travelled were treasured memories. Sandra was very involved in Missionettes, the girls program at an Assemblies of God church where they were members, and served as the program coordinator. Her daughters fondly recall their mother helping with all the readings and memorization of Bible Verses. She helped them become “Star of Stars”. Her love of baking provided many goodies at church functions where she enjoyed constructing craft projects for the children of the congregation. She carefully attended to the home and children during her husband’s deployments proudly serving our country in the United States Navy.

Sandra’s baked good were renowned and she won several blue ribbons for her recipes as The State Fair of Texas and Wisconsin State Fair. She loved Christian Hymns, enjoyed watching Westerns and classic musicals, and attending church. Sandra leaves a legacy of warmth, devotion, and faithfulness that will be felt for generations to come. She was dearly loved and will be deeply missed.

She is preceded in death by her father Robert Dean Schallow.

Sandra is survived by her beloved husband Lance Prucnal; children Charity Prucnal, Chasity Prucnal, and Caleb Prucnal; grandchildren Ethan Cooke and Elizabeth Prucnal.
