She was born on June 27, 1926, in Madison, the daughter of Ervin and Rose (Petranek) Schuppener. She married Walter “Wally” Kwiecinski on Jan. 26, 1946, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. Kaye and Wally resided in Madison before relocating to Longwood, Fla., for 25 years. She then returned to Madison in 2012.
