Sally A. Wilde

April 18, 1932 — October 23, 2022

Sally A. Wilde, age 90, passed away on Sunday, October 23, 2022, at Bethel Home in Oshkosh. She was born on April 18, 1932, in Oshkosh to the late Earl and Helen (Riemer) Taylor. Sally was united in marriage on January 16, 1954, to William Wilde in Oshkosh. He preceded her in death on September 18, 1997.


Sally will forever be remembered as loving, vibrant, and fun. An easy talker who loved conversation with all, she cherished friendships and welcomed strangers much the same. She was known to many as Wild Sal or Sassy Sal.


Her favorite role was being “Grams” or Grandma Sally. She rarely missed a sporting event or concert of her grandchildren. She always had a supply of her special Chex mix or cookies to share.


Her gift of gab led to her 20 year career as cataract patient counselor for Dr. Gerald Clarke. She also worked for the US Census Bureau and had two family businesses with her husband.


After moving back to Oshkosh in 2010, Sally was involved in the Oshkosh Senior Center and Peace Lutheran Church. Quiet time would find her knitting, cross-stitching, reading, and working over the ever present crossword puzzle. She enjoyed cheering on the Brewers and Packers.


Visits with Sally were filled with smiles, great conversations, laughs, hugs, and the invariable smooch.


Sally is survived by her children: Mary Ann (John) Kieckhafer, Bill (Jayne) Wilde, Sandy (Ron Kundinger Sr.) Prast; grandchildren: Rebecca (Luke) Rickert, Melissa Prast, Ben (Amber) Prast, Andy Kieckhafer, Matt (Shelbie) Kieckhafer, Sam Kieckhafer; great grandchildren: Olivia Kieckhafer, Camille and Chanelle Prast, Caleb and Isaac Rickert, Colton and Emma Prast; nieces: Roxane (Jim) Erickson, Andrea (Carson) Fruth; and dear friends: Peter Prast, Janet Steinert, Carol and Bill Wright and so many more. She was further preceded in death by her husband, William Wilde; sister, Connie Schreiber; and mother and father-in-law: Ruth and Walter Wilde.


A memorial service for Sally will be held at 12:00 pm on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home, 402 Waugoo Avenue, Oshkosh with Rev. Andi Wolf officiating. Visitation will take place on Tuesday at the funeral home from 10:00 am until the time of service.
