Obituary: Amanda DeWitt Engberg

Amanda DeWitt Engberg, née Mulliken, 69, of Washington Island and Appleton, died peacefully Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018.  She was surrounded by her family.

Amanda is survived by her children Lillie (Tony) Conrad, Edrik (Alyssa) Engberg, and William (Ava) Engberg; her grandchildren Henry and Ana; her fur babies; and many dear family members and friends.  Amanda was preceded in death by her parents, Emily and David Mulliken.

Amanda had a great life raising her family and working as an artist and silversmith. Her childhood years were spent living in a variety of places ranging from Washington, DC to California, France to Japan, and finally moving back to her family’s hometown of Champaign, Illinois to finish high school and attend college.  She found her true home, however, in Door County where she lived until this past fall. She owned and operated DeWitt Jewelry for more than 40 years, through which she was well known for her highly artistic silver bracelets, earrings and pendants, all of which were one-of-a-kind creations she hammered herself.  Amanda always found serenity in being outdoors and remained very active throughout her life. Her humor, wit, and character will be missed by the many friends and acquaintances she made over her lifetime, and will especially be missed by her loving children.

A memorial service will be held at a future date.
