PINCKNEYVILLE —Constance Letitia Krisher, 91, of Pinckneyville, passed away at 2:04 p.m.  Sunday, June 28, 2020, in Pinckneyville Nursing and Rehabilitation.

The funeral service and visitation are private. Due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 virus and by the signing of executive order by Governor J.B. Pritzker, attendance is limited and social distancing will be enforced. Pyatt Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.

Mrs. Krisher was born Aug. 30, 1928, at McCurtain, Okla., a daughter of the late Edward Joseph and Margaret Arvilla Dobson Sweeney. She married August “Gus” Krisher in McCurtain, Okla., Dec. 13, 1947, and he preceded her in death April 3, 2016, after 68 years of marriage.

Survivors include her two sons, Joe (Donna) Krisher of Mascoutah and Alex (Susan) Krisher of Bowling Green, Ky.; two daughters, Maggie (Carrol) Adcock of Pinckneyville and Lisa (John) Tallman of Stillman Valley; her Irish twin brother, Father Ed Sweeney; 13 grandchildren, Michael, Jason, Matt, Angie, Chris, Mary, Sarah, Dan, Jo, Alexandra, Will, John and Joseph; and 24 grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by 11 brothers and sisters.

Mrs. Krisher was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church at Paris and attended St. Bruno Catholic Church, Pinckneyville. She was the quintessential homemaker. She excelled at baking and cooking, cleaning, gardening, sewing and taking care of her family and especially her grandchildren. Occasionally, she worked outside of the home including making her famous pies for a local restaurant.

Memorial donations may be made to Manor at Mason Woods, Pinckneyville.
