I always loved sharing Scott's favorite memory with others. We miss you Scott. In your memory one more time. The first NFL championship game played in Green Bay (the Packers’ 1939 championship bout was played in Milwaukee) carried with it a great deal of angst due to the predicted artic conditions. Just two days before the game, thermometers plummeted to -15 degrees. A crew of 50 men covered the field with 20 tons of hay to keep the field from freezing. A local businessman named Scott Olsen even developed what is believed to be the first sideline heating system in NFL history to keep the players warm.

Patty was my college room mate and friend and bridesmaid in my August 1970 wedding. Sorry for her passing. I remember her for her a super smart woman ahead of her time. Memories are our treasures now. Peace

Jim always approached every conversation with a concern for and a desire to help someone learn something. He always appreciated a thoughtful conversation.I became acquainted coming and going in my role as Chaplain at Luther Manor. I did not know his full background. The world is a much better place for his having lived into his gifts.

Paula Brookmire posted on 6/29/20

Even with some memory loss, Patty recalled songs, stories and scenes of the family home from childhood. She could hold a good conversation up until February of this year. We laughed a lot when she came in for her massage. And she really appreciated the value of touch, as did her mom, Nettie. I was privileged to have both of them as clients over the years. Patty's sister Joanne Ziarek did a remarkable job of caring for Patty for so many years. It is a treasure to see such love. My sympathy goes out to the whole family. With love, Paula Brookmire, Milwaukee


Donna Gough posted on 6/29/20

Although I never personally knew cousin Patty, I feel as though I did know her through Joanne. She lived a very fully life and obviously excelled in every area of her being. May our Lord bless and keep her always in His loving arms. Peace and Blessings.


Joyce Gauss posted on 6/29/20

I don’t have many, if any, memories of knowing Patty, but I DO know mother did and always shared her admiration of her with everyone! May she be at peace and Love to the family! Joyce Gauss


Roxie Ellis posted on 6/29/20

Patty was an extraordinary personality with limitless potential. God must have needed her talents in His Kingdom and deemed it time to have her with Him and her heavenly family. My childhood memories of her always bring to mind a ready wit and a mischievous smile; happy memories also of time spent with her and Judy on the farm. Rest peacefully, Patty.


Marcia Brandes posted on 6/29/20

Although I have not seen Patty since I was a child, I know of her through Joanne. It takes a lot of grace to be able to live with the kind of illness she had. I am glad that she is now at peace, even though it means her remaining family will miss her.


Karen Encelewski posted on 6/29/20

Patty had so many gifts to share with her family and the world. It is tragic that her life was cut short way before her death. I'm thankful that my sisters and I had an opportunity to meet Patty and visit with her for an afternoon. May her family be blessed and strengthened by our caring thoughts and prayers.

Today I had an overwhelming feeling hover over me to come on here and view your obituary. It's approaching the 6 month mark without you and man oh man it's not any easier than it was 6 months ago. I miss you like crazy. I struggle with the fact that you're not here, but I'm at peace with the fact that you're no longer suffering. I miss you sending me those random images you'd create. I still have all our messages. School's almost over for me and I continue to work longer shifts more often at work. I'm stressed, but I will continue on for you, grandma, mom, dad, grandma N, and papa N. I love you Papa, forever. <3

John, we were friends for over 56 years. The memories are many and I will continue to relive them as time goes on. I miss our conversations, and our political discussions. I know the last six years were certainly not what you would have ever wanted, but I was always amazed at how you handled those health issues. You will be missed by many, including me. Rest in peace, my friend, rest in peace.......

Chip lived at 4218 S. 5th Place. I lived at 4228 S. 5th Place. They had a bare patch in the backyard of their home. It drew the neighborhood boys. Chip's parents had a TV which I was allowed, with others to watch Howdy Doody. I had hoped to meet Chip one last time. My deepest sympathies to you and all of your family. I will pray from him and you.

Angela Hayes posted on 4/26/20

Heather my sister my friend. Knowing you for 20 plus years. I have seen your journey we have laughed together cry together fought for each other spiritually and we pray together. Whenever she felt lost and the Darkness try to overcome her should give me a call for a tongue lashing. We always kept each other lifted up no matter what. In her final days she reached out and we comforted each other. I wish I hadn't missed your call I wish I could have been there for you again. You have always been there for me when I need it. You being pregnant with Eladio craving ice cream that I could never find. We'd be out for hours looking for chunky monkey. Her children were her prized possessions her biggest accomplishments as she felt. She had an undying love for her babies and nothing on this Earth could stop her from being there for them. People who seen her when she was down turn their nose but I never did. I know what it is to go through trials and tribulations waiting on her testimony. She always kept me organized and yelled at me because everything was a mess. We were a perfect counter to each other. We put our hearts first reaching out to love others even when they proved unworthy she still loved and loved hard. I'm going to miss you my friend you are my sister not by Blood but my love. That'll never change and you'll forever be in my heart. I love you baby fly high here with us always.


Rae Aviles posted on 4/25/20

Theres no more hurt, theres no more pain just whats left of your face to your name. You left us with stories, you left us with laughs, you left us with hopes of your unchanged path. I now think of your babies and the space that it leaves, of not having their mama and all they can do is grieve. I hope you were peaceful and also unafraid but i think you knew what was happening and agreed with decisions you made. Its not a put down nor low blow at all, just know that those long talks and bonfires ment the world to me...thats all. Rest easy Heathergirl, you are missed always. I can still hear you say "Raaaaeeee"

Although your life here on earth was shortened and we miss you so very much, we are able to find comfort in knowing you finally have that perfect peace and feel the perfect love that only The Father, Son & Spirit are able to provide and that is now your eternity. It will never go away nor ever end. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your earthly journey these last few years. I will always hold that time & those experiences close to my heart.

My first teaching job was at McKinley Elementary School in MPS, and Don was my principal. Ever-supportive and encouraging, he made those initial challenging years a great learning experience. He took a few of us with him to Steuben Middle School where he created another positive educational environment. Soft-spoken, but a strong leader, he earned the respect and admiration of his staff. If not for the medical crisis in our country today, his funeral would be flooded with well-wishers. He leaves a great legacy for his family.

I remember for the last few years how I would come take you to run yo errands or bring you what you called your care packages I’m just happy Every time I picked you up if you was in the back or the front I turned and stared at you. You would say KeyKey what you looking at I would say you so pretty or you look like a baby you would smile. I miss the times you stayed with me and all the times I came to your house just to be under you and hear your stories.Since I was a little kid if I needed someone to talk to I was able to talk to you I miss that smile you used to give me when you said what keykey. Ima going to miss you telling me like it was. I’m miss you calling me. Even if you stop if I didn’t answer and when I called you back you told me like it was. I love you and loved being around you. I wonder if you finished your book you was writing because I would love to read it. Rest auntie I love you. I guess you are in a better place.

Jack and Terri Iverson posted on 4/2/20

Nan and Bob have been wonderful neighbors since we moved into the neighborhood 12 years ago. We live only a few houses from theirs. Nan was such an inspiration to watch her get out on a daily walk when the weather was nice. Her daughter-in-law, Karen would sometimes accompany her, but most often, Nan was on her own. She didn’t let using a walker deter her whatsoever! Our hearts go out to Bob and her family.

I knew Marge as "Grandma Marge," because she married my Grandfather Richard Hays. Though she wasn't my real grandma she always treated me with such love and kindness. She softened my Grandfather in a way I hadn't seen and I began really looking forward to our visits to their house. She was so accepting and understanding and took the time to listen and get to know each and every one of her new grandkids. Though we lost touch later after Grandpa passed I always missed seeing her smile and laughing together as a family. Rest well Grandma Marge.

My favorite uncle. He made my childhood special. He always had time to draw for me, send a postcard from the Army, even got me a set of BDUs I wore proudly as a kid in the field. I wanted to be just like him when I grew up, but he stressed it was important I find myself. I eventually did. Thank you so much, Uncle Ziggy.

Dear Grandma, I’m sitting here thinking about all the great memories we made with you. I remember far back to when you watched me while mom went to work, it was real early in the morning and I remember you had me cuddle up with you and Grandpa would get ready for work. I wish now I could have one more cuddle. You had the brightest smile that would light up any room you entered. The love for your family was unconditional and I hope I’m that kind of grandma for my grand babies. I love and miss you so much and so does my kids.

I met " uncle Joe as he was fondly called in 2015 in the city of the great king, Jerusalem, Israel in 2015. Rita and Joe later came to Zambia, Africa and visited with us. Was a memorable time. Over the last 15 years we built up a solid and robust family relationship and shared in the communion of Christ's love. Joe and Rita later invited me to visit with them in 2010. What a blessed time of refreshment it was. And about two weeks ago, Joe and I spoke on phone on what i never imagined would be the last call. If I ever knew it was going to be the last call, I would have never have hang up on the call. My Father and my God, the horse men and chariots of the God of Israel have come and taken my friend Joe into Glory. I can only thank you and Praise you at this sad and yet celebratory moment of Joe's 80 Years of life, I NEVER SAW JOE ANGRY BUT ALWAYS JOKING AND JOVIAL. OUR HEART FELT LOVE AND GOD'S STRENGTH TO RITA AND VICTOR, LYNN, AND CHILDREN AND JOSHUA, CLAIRE.

My most fond memories of Grandma Fallier were the memories from the Christmases of my childhood, when we were all together. As I got older, I remember her laugh, and I especially remember her occasional sassiness - either she would tease me or I would tease her, and there would be a pinch. She had an enormous personality, and will always hold a special place in my heart. Godspeed, Grandma.


Vince Wittig posted on 1/10/20

Since the time I was a child, I always knew you as "Grandma Fallier". We weren't related by blood, but you always treated me as if I was. I have a lot of memories which we still talk about to this day. Deepest condolences to all of your loved ones, but your memory will remain through the stories we tell our children and their children. God Bless.


Jim and Nolan posted on 1/10/20

Grandma, where do I start? You were there since the beginning. There are soo many special memories that I will have with me forever thanks to you. From family trips to holidays and Birthdays, you always seemed to make them extra special with your bubbly personality and love for your family. Some of my fondest memories are of you and Grandpa sitting at the kitchen table being goofy and you guys always made sure you had a stash of candy waiting just for us! Kisses and hugs were bountiful and you always made us feel at home when visiting you. You were a wonderful Wife, Mother, Grandma, and Great Grandma and your smile and laugh will forever be missed. You are Nolan's favorite "Little Grandma" and he'll miss the time he spent with you. I hope you always have a front row seat at all of your favorite Wrestlers Matches! Love you ALWAYS!


Michael Wittig posted on 1/10/20

You have been in my life since 1972. We shared many years together with you as my mother-in-law. We laughed all the time and I learned to love your sarcasm and stubbornness. I watched you and learned that your love of your children was above all else. Your home was more than most in that you provided foster care for Patricia and by doing so, ensured a lasting relationship of 50 years between her and Liz. They went from friends to family, and that has, and will always endear you in my heart. I saw your generous side as well. It was one of love and unconditional acceptance of me as your son-in-law... and as a part of your family. You always told me that you loved me and that would never change. Thank you for making me a part of your life, for treating me as one of your own, and for sharing your “wit” and your life... with me.

Grandma... You always had the coffee on with some sweet treats and were ready for long conversations. It was never a short visit, but the time flew by. I never wanted to leave. I will miss you talking about your brothers and working on the farm with the chickens. Your love for Michael Jackson and Rod Stewart will always make me laugh. We had many laughs that I will forever cherish. Thank you for taking time to bond and build a relationship with Sylvia. There were many wonderful memories made during those visits (who was taller, you or Sylvia). I’m glad we (Jim, Chris, and I) were able to spend your last Birthday (84th) with you. You will be forever missed.

Linda Nickerson posted on 12/23/19

To the Family: I never know what to say at times like this, when you’ve heard everything already, probably numerous times over the last several days. So I’ll tell you my fondest memories of the Hutchinson/Nickerson shenanigans back when our kids were …. kids. Numerous Pizzas at Pete’s Pizzeria. Best pizza back in the 70s and 80s. I remember little Rachael bringing the lumps on the underside of the table to Brad’s attention. They were both sent to restrooms to disinfect. The time I talked your family into going to my first and last haunted house. Everybody was apprehensive. “It’ll be fun”, I said. I saw nothing. My eyes were closed and my face was buried in Barry’s back the entire way. It was not fun. Why would you believe me, since I’d never been to one before? John teased me about how much fun I had. It truly was terrifying. Afterwards, we stopped at Pepino’s in Oconomowoc – John’s treat. Lots of laughs.......afterwards, in a safe, warm, friendly atmosphere. A dinner party at your house – John was the cook, of course. Board games and drinking followed. Fun times. Couples bowling league. Good thing John and Kris could bowl, because the Nickersons weren’t holding up their end. Numerous JCP Christmas Parties. I’ll think back on these memories until I can’t anymore. Rest in Peace, my friend. Love and Hugs to my Best Friend Kris and the Hutchinson, Hubert, Henning families. Take comfort in your memories.

To Peter and Mary and Kathy's close friends I send my deepest sympathies on Kathy's passing. We’ve known each other since 1969 and worked together at Allen-Bradley until she quit. We went to Europe together in 1976 along with her parents and some friends of theirs. Kathy was truly unique. She had such a zest for life and I always thought she had a lot of class....even though she could often surprise you with her....shall we say....particular choice of words. She would phone me and we would often talk for 2 hours or more. We shared some similar health issues and we'd exchange info and experiences. A really bright light has gone out in this world now that Kathy is gone. I know she will be truly missed. I am devastated. Her death is so shocking and so terribly sad. Sincerest condolences, Cindy (Pinter) Goad and husband Paul Goad. Milwaukee, WI

My friendship with Kristin began as co-workers, and the long-running joke soon became how LOUD Kristin spoke; she had one of those voices that traveled for miles. Everytime I walked into work and heard Kristin all the way from the front entrance, it immediately put a smile on my face knowing I would get to work with her. She is the only person I continued staying friends with after the job and she never hesitated helping anybody with anything they might ask of her. My sincerest, deepest condolences go out to the entire family: especially Kristin's parents, her best friend & sister Stacy, and her strong young son Jordan. We have truly lost one of the most caring, loving, sacrificial, selfless humans I've known. You are deeply missed and loved Kristin.

Dad, I'll never forget the summer of 2014 when we embarked on the trip of a lifetime and you drove me to my new home in Arizona. Your goal was to get us there safe and sound and you did just that with a lot of laughs and memories made along the way. I love you always and forever.

Don was my best friend while we were undergraduates at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. I remember his passion for chess, although I was not a very competent adversary for him. We took many of the same classes, as we both majored in Chemistry (I also majored in Biology). I kept in touch with him a few years after we graduated from CWRU, but then our life paths diverged. I have frequently thought of Don since then, and I have often considered renewing our friendship, but until today, I was unable to locate any information about him. I'm very sorry I was unable to see him again before he passed, but I will always treasure the times we shared.

Dylan - son posted on 8/3/19

So for a few years in a row we made it a family trip to go up to willow river state park up on the north woods. I’d say as a family our favorite place to go for sure. I’m not sure what year it was but I couldn’t of been older then 11 or 12. There’s a mile or so trail that leads to an amazing waterfall, me an dad decided to go on a walk not sure what mom was up to but we ended up walking a trail to the top of the waterfall an there’s this narrow trail 130 feet above the waterfall or so with a straight drop into the shallow an rocky river. Me being the kid I was in skipping along this trail, dad was about 20 feet behind me an there ended up being a tree root sticking out of the ground. Me an my luck I of course trip over this root no chance what so ever of dad catching me I fell rolled about 3 or 4 time as my feet are falling of the edge somehow I grabbed onto a small tree saving myself from falling to my death. Dad runs up pulls me up from hanging over the edge as we proceed to hysterically laugh probably out of fear. First thing he says is “holy shot you are fucking lucky, your mom almost killed me” one of my favorite memories with him. Will never forgot the look on his face while he was pulling me up from the cliff



Michele Gresbach posted on 8/3/19

Damian's smile and laugh precede him in his memory! When I think of Damian the first thing that comes to mind is and will always be his beautiful smile and his contagious laugh. He was courageous and didn't let his affliction change his radiating vibrance or his need for adventure and the wonder of what the beauty of nature holds. He was the cousin you always wanted. The one that would pick you up and spin you around and gave the best hugs...the kind of hugs that only Damian could give. I love you Damian. Love always, Michele

I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Donald. I have been wanting to reach out to him for many years now, and never had the courage. Now it is to late, and I have learned one of the biggest life lessons about regret. Donald was married to my grandmother back in the 80’s in Dallas. He was our grandfather growing up. (My sister and I). We loved him dearly. I googled him many times over the years, and learned of him relocating to Florida and getting remarried. I always wondered if he ever thought of us or even remembered us. I was scared to reach out, because I didn’t want to burden him and the new life he had made. It was heartbreaking for my sister and I to lose him as children. We lost a grandfather and couldn’t understand why. I wish I could have told him how much he was loved and missed all these years. I wish I could have told him how special he was, and how admired he was. I guess that’s why I’m writing on here today. It is July 4th. We always think of you on this day and all you did for our country. I googled you again yesterday and found out about your passing. I was extremely saddened, but I know you are up there in heaven looking down on all your loved ones. I hope you didn’t forget about michelle and I, because we never forgot about you. May you Rest In Peace “Don Don.” We love you so much, and we will always cherish the memories we shared with you. My condolences to all his family and friends. ❤️

To my big/little sister from "Katie", as she called me. Suzie and I were best buds. I will be eternally grateful to have spent so much time with her. She was the best travel partner although, her sense of direction was equal to mine, which is none. We laughed, we cried, we shopped, we worked on our homes together. There are so many things I will miss about her, mostly that she is no longer in my life. She is now free of pain and worry. I will see you again Q's, and I love you.

I remember so may times when Bill would walk through the doors at FJA Christiansen Roofing's field office, always smiling and with a funny comment of some sort that lit up the room. We would talk about the weather, roofing, or whatever and he made my day that much better every time we met. He would ask "what's Kenny working on today?" Then we would talk about Kenny's ideas and creations, etc. Bill always left our place that much better than when he arrived. What a blessing I received every time Bill came around to visit!

Almost 20 years ago Ben & Cheryl came to our then church, Calvary Assembly of God. I'm time we became true friends. Ben was the first one to say to me Gods plans arn't Mans plans which now I always say and never forgot who first said it. Every so often as men will do he would begin to God off during service and Cheryl would nudge him and sometimes when I saw that we would silently giggle. Never once in all those years did I see anger or a harsh word come from him. A great guy he was.

My deepest sympathies to the Arndt family and all his loved ones at this terribly difficult time. Hopefully all the great memories with Tony will help sustain us as we try to process his loss. May God bless and comfort you.



Jeff Grabowski posted on 6/19/19

I’ve known Tony for most of my 52 yrs. We became friends soon after his family moved into my neighborhood. We daily played baseball, football or basketball and video games starting in grade school. He was always a great friend who never hesitated if you were in need. Tony was instrumental in getting me started in weightlifting at a young age. He would attend a lot of my bench press competitions and whenever I needed a training partner, he was always there, 100% of the time, even after 3rd shifts. He was very good hearted and always wanted to help people which led to his desire to be a police officer. But after a few years with the Sheriff’s dept working in corrections, he found a new calling in the health/nursing field. Being a paraplegic for 32 years from an industrial accident, I’ve met a lot of great health care workers over the years. I believed his patience and empathetic nature would be a great fit with nursing. He was doing great as a home health care aid while he was working on the RN education/training It’s so sad and tragic that Tony left us so before realizing his true calling and all the people he could have helped through the nursing profession. I’ll really miss talking about life, cars and sports with Tony. He was an easy person to talk to, with an always positive nature and never complained. He was just a really really good guy and friend. He is greatly missed by many, far more than he could ever imagine. RIP my friend.

I made Ben laugh once when I told him “I gotta go cause brown sugar melts in the sun” as the family was sitting in the back yard enjoying the sun. I think he was the only one listening to me. Ben was definitely the quiet guy in the back round and you wouldn’t know he was there until you made him laugh. A good husband great father and even thou hard working...I always felt bad for anyone that was unable to reap the benefits of their labor and enjoy retirement. But today I thought... He is benefiting! Only in a better place with his Creator and with his loved ones that he will meet again, without any pain. Rest in paradise brother in law it was an honor to know you.

Mary was a wonderful sister, at the young age of 16 years old our Mother passed away. The five youngest of a family of 11 were eleven years and younger. Mary ended up taking the role of “Mom” to the five youngest. Not only did she take care of our daily needs, she paid for our dental bills, made pies and cookies on her days off and made sure our birthdays were always special. I could go on and on. Thank you Mary for being one of the best big sister a family could have. We love you and are going to miss you. Rest In Peace!!!

I have SO many memories of Mary--when we first met, when she came to live with us not once but twice,her smile,when her & Jim & he kids came to visit,Jodis reception. She was so very proud of her girls---they were everything to her. How she openly admitted how much in love she was with her husband even thru their ups and downs. Whenever we talked it was about the girls, their husbands and her grandchildren.And how at the last she was anxiously awaiting the birth of her great grandson. I loved her from the first time we met ( & and all the rest of her siblings) and as I am writing this---it so pains my heart I will never get to hear her voice and that beautiful laughter again. My prayers, hugs and condolences to the families---rest in peace, beautiful Mary--I will see you when I see you---Love always Sally

But years later we laughed about us being sneaky or cleaver... Ya right, everyone knew what it meant! Some would even join us! I was not there for the convention in New Orleans, but there was a really hilarious story of her trading pants with a sailor after drinking the "weather" system... Hurricane, tornado etc. Lol how she would laugh at that story! We bowled together and were secretary /treasurer together, getting ready for the banquet, eating Chinese and trying to figure out why we didn't match what we were supposed to have..... Hours later laughing at our mistake and we finally got it right. Moral of the stories? Laughing! Laughing! And more laughing! Be at peace my friend!

Hearing of this tremendous loss broke my heart. Julio was very special and I will always cherish the times that my family and I spent with him. His big smile lit up the room and he always greeted us with a great big "Que pasa!!" and a bear hug when we saw him. Our prayers are that his family can find some comfort in remembering the good times you shared with him and in knowing that he was loved by many.

I was so heartbroken to learn that Julio fell asleep in death. Having known him for over 20 years, I am left with only memories of his big laugh, hilarious sense of humor, caring and kind nature. If Julio had it, and you needed it...he would give it. It was always a party when he was in the room. We will most certainly miss him but look forward to seeing him again, with that big smile he always had on his face. My husband and I are so hurt that we cannot be there in person to support the family but please know we are praying continuously for you all.

Dear family, I want to share a few memories with you about my dear uncle Johan: Uncle Johan was my far away American uncle whom I rarely saw, but whom I respected. He and Fie continued to speak Dutch so well. Although they often said after a Dutch sentence: "You know". Long ago in 1983 my parents, sister and I traveled to the USA. This trip took us to my aunt To in Portland, Yellowstone and Glacier park and to Milwaukee. There we ate the American style: pizzas in a special restaurant called The Organian (?) and real American hamburgers. No Dutch food such as Brussels sprout, potatoes and tiny piece of meat. We visited 'Great America' a very big amusement park together. When we stayed in (very hot) Milwaukee for a few days we drove to the state of Michigan, where the family had rented a nice house with a jetty near a beautiful lake. We visited the Kelloggs factory, where we had to wear mouthcaps and hairnets with great hilarity. On a warm day we were standing on the jetty at the house and we were laughing an playing. Suddenly I pushed (the heavy) uncle Johan into the water. We laughed hard, but I had forgotten that he was wearing all his clothes. He climbed out of the water and checked whether his watch was still working. Fortunately it did. But he came to the conclusion that his glasses were still somewhere in the water. I dived into the water a few times and fortunately I found his glasses on the bottom of the lake. Fie and Johan also came to the Netherlands and visited our house. We ate together and it was nice to see them again. He also arranged my first iPhone. The iPhone was barely for sale in the Netherlands. Rear cousin Brandon had sold his phone to me and Johan just sent the phone in a simple envelope with bubble wrap. It's still working! When I cycled through the USA in 2016, uncle Johan followed my blog. He was interested in my trip. And called me when I visited Mary and Steve in Salem.     Back in the Netherlands, we skyped every now and then. Lately more often, because I am working on the family tree of the Poortvlieten. He knew a lot about the past. Every birthday of my or our sons he send us an E-birthdaycard. He never forgot a one birthday. Uncle Johan was a special man. With a strong opinion. We wish Fie and children and grandchildren a lot of strength these days. Willem and Marja Poortvliet (and Freek en Thijs)


Margaret (Margriet) Harren Krolikowski posted on 3/19/19

Dear Fie, your smile in the picture with Johan, is just as I remembered it. I hope and pray you will be comforted in all the good memories of your long life together. You and Johan were the first friends of my parents in Milwaukee.

My brother Mark Olen was NOT a Vietnam veteran and definitely not an MP. This is a lie. He enlisted in the Army and went thru basic training and part of AIT and was discharged because of his knees . If he were a true veteran then why wasn't he being treated at the VA hospital?? Him and his wife are as dishonest as the day is long. This is a slap in the face to true veterans. I called the Veterans Memorial Cemetery and guess what?...I wasn't the first! This is wrong .

Dear family of Johan DeGraaf. My sympathy is with you all as you will miss a loving husband,dad and grandfather. It is great to know he is with Jesus our Savior. I knew your dad as a child;when we and your family lived on the east side of Milwaukee. Both our families had come from Holland and met through a Dutch club. I also took care of Johan several years ago when he was recovering after a day cardiac procedure. (at St. Luke's Hos.) Sincerely Maria(Harren)Fischbach

Barb Snell Troy posted on 3/15/19

Johan was a remarkable man who I was fortunate enough to meet through our volunteering at Ronald McDonald House. Every time I talked to him I learned something new. He taught me many things about my own Dutch heritage (my deceased Dad also being from a family that immigrated from the Netherlands right before his birth). Our conversations also frequently covered the topics of religion, church choirs and local health care. My heart goes out to Johan's beautiful family at this time. May your memories be sweet as Johan now rests in the loving arms of our Savior.

Dear Tammy, Michael, and Devin. We are thinking of you today, and wish we could be there to give you hugs. Our hearts are crying for you. We know it is so hard, yet, know she is at rest, and with your Grandpa and Grandma, and all of our other aunts, uncles, grandparents and our cousin Sharon. As you know, all 9 of us cousins were brought up together in South Milwaukee. We had a common bond with our parents, and our aunts and uncles who were our "2nd set of parents". Aunt Emmy and Uncle Fred always made sure we had Nancy and Carol in our lives too even though they moved away from Wisconsin. There were many fond memories of Christmas and summers at 5ll. 511 Michigan Ave. was our Grandma and Grandpa Hafemann's house and later became Aunt Florence and Uncle Cleve's house. We also spent many times together at Aunt Ruth and Uncle Brad's house on S. Chicago Ave. playing games. One year, either your Mom or Jimmy received the game Clue, we played for hours and did not want to leave to go home. We were blessed to all be brought up together, and were always there for each other. God Bless your Mom (Grandma) today, she is now free of all of her illness and with everyone that went before her...and we can find peace with that. Hugs, Susan and Jerry


Carol J Romero posted on 3/12/19

Dear Sandra, As cousins, our lives were intertwined from our earliest years. A few highlights that I hope you remember too... Do you recall how we played on the front porch of Gramma's house in South Milwaukee when we were 5 or 6 years old? How we pretended a card table covered with a blanket was our "fort" that we had to protect at all costs? You certainly remember representing the Hafemann family when Fred and I got married in Washington, D.C. You must also remember visiting Arlington Cemetery so you could take a photo of Audie Murphy's grave for your father who had fought with him. Do you recall how many miles we walked that day? Or how warm it was for mid-December? Fred and I had hoped you would visit us at least one more time. But that was not to be. We'll miss you a lot. At least we have our memories. Our love to you. Rest in Peace. Carol and Fred Romero

Mark did not finish basic training. He graduated in 1974 & was too young for Vietnam. This can be checked by looking up school records at Cudahy high school. I am sorry for his 3rd wife, because he lied to her. The army will not let him be buried in a military cemetary!

My lasting memory of my aunt is that she was always soft spoken, loving and so stylish in her manner of dress and her home. Growing up I was amazed that never heard her raise her voice compared to her sisters who need I say were very vocal but loving as well. I always felt she was a great wife and mom, excellent homemaker and admired her sense of style as she wore her hats with class. Rest in Peace Aunt Iola as you have joined your sister, my mom Anita, in the heavens above.

Craig Hand posted on 1/11/19

THE PATRIARCH OF THE FERKOVICH FAMILY HAS PASSED {A letter I prepared on Dec 10th 2018} Farewell Tommy, I will think of you from time to time and have. I understood and appreciated your cool image back in the day. Your red late 60’s Chevy was a standout car amongst the other muscle cars in the local area. Although you had many cool cars throughout your time. I think that Art and others looked up to you and wanted to be like you. You raised the bar in coolness and they tried to get there on their own but never quite getting there themselves, although getting three quarters towards you is a good distance as well. I will always think of you when I hear CCR’s version of Hello Mary Lou. Why? I think I remember hearing it a lot driving around in your car. You were a physically strong man, even when I was in my prime your power overpowered mine. You, Art and my Dad obviously got me into the guitar which was a huge part of my life. I later became a guitar instructor and developed my own guitar teaching system. Once in a while I will talk like you and Art {in that Italian style cool slang} to my friends to throw them off and to revisit that way of speaking. You were naturally funny and made me laugh many times. It was your take on things that really got to me. I remember in South Range one firework went off and we didn’t hear anything afterwards and you said that they only had a $25.00 budget for fireworks that year. Hilarious.  I was rolling.  But there was tons of stuff like that that were equally as clever. Not being a Ferkovich I had to stand on the side lines but regardless I did see how the others that carry your name all loved and respected you. I said earlier that you are the Patriarch of the family, well that is true. Not a bad title and reputation to have. You are going into the great unknown before us and I am sure that is scary but perhaps it is to see if it is safe for the rest of us something a leader would do. They say that one dies twice, once physically and once when the last person speaks your name. I think that people will speak of you for a long time to come. If you have the energy watch a movie called Meet Joe Black. Peace be with you! Your brother Craig M. Hand

We were learning about your third dog Elenore. You were our babysitter for our children. Since the day of your injury, this family has been with you on your journey. We think of you often, Brewers events, favorite restaurants, whats new on Facebook, etc. We see you sitting on your deck. You have shown such strength and spirit. You persevered through many difficult medical procedures. You showed us what what is really important in life. You will not be forgotten. "You are my sunshine".

Ken's bright energy, warm nature and sly humor was a bright spot in my day. Ken took an interest in everyone he met, often asking about my family and sharing his ideas for more efficient project completion. He truly make our prep room fun and the laughter that came from there often drew me in. Ken talked about his own family with great love and pride. We know how much you will all miss him, because we already do every day.

My sympathy to the family and loved ones of Frieda Knippenberg. Frieda: I always enjoyed my visits with you. You enjoyed those cooking shows and were the only one I knew who was able to grow one tomato in the house in the winter months! We had another connection as you knew my mother and father and I think partly because of them you treated me very kindly. I will miss your pleasant disposition and kindness in your relationship with others. Sincerely, JP

Deborah, Eugene's daughter posted on 11/18/18

It’s so difficult to say goodbye to my dad. I miss him tremendously! My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he loved me and I felt that love. I’d like to honor him with some of my memories. He lived a full, vibrant life, and I watched him do it…all the way to the remarkable age of 95. He was a complicated man, a Reinerio. I know the Reinerios in the room will appreciate what I’m saying. We didn’t always get along, yet he’s left me with so many lessons about living. Wise words that I’ve jotted down over the years, “Every day is a miracle.” Or “Life is what you make it…and some days I don’t make it very good.” “You can gripe if you want to, but that just puts you in a bad mood.” He shared wonderful stories of his childhood with me. When friends would pass by in the hallway, and say Hi, Gene. He told me that in high school, ‘Hi, Gene’ made him think of hygiene as in cleanliness. He was the youngest boy and looked up to his older brothers. Marion was the hard-working one while Leonard was often found hiding in the warmth behind the kitchen stove. While visiting friends in California, sitting down to a meal of polenta and sausage, he was suddenly taken over by memories of his mother’s cooking and their dinner table. He often recalled his connection to his childhood and the family of twelve kids growing up in a small town during the Depression; like when a wagon load of grapes would pull into town and they would buy grapes to make wine. My mother lived in the same town. They grew up together. My dad loved my mother so much! They used to sit in overstuffed chairs and just talk. They enjoyed each other’s company and it was always evident he had married the love of his life! When my mother began her gradual decline into Alzheimers, my father was her number one caregiver! He never left her side. From him and his selfless love for her, I have the lesson of what true love requires. My parents used to visit me in California for Christmas. We would get together with friends, share Tom and Jerry’s and make spaghetti sauce that came to be known as Reinerio Red. He made friends wherever he went. He had a joy of living and a genuine interest in people. He was a beacon, enriching others. My father was truly a lifelong learner… always looking for the next book about history or investing and then sharing it with those around him. I was lucky to have spent so much time with him in the past several years…either with me visiting him at Tudor Oaks or with his trips to California when we would spend Thanksgiving week in the wine country. We would walk frequently. There was a time when I couldn’t keep up with my dad’s pace! He was quite a walker! Even when he had to use a wheelchair, he continued to be forever on the move. One of the more memorable Thanksgivings was when my sister and her family joined us. We spent most of the week wine tasting. My dad loved every minute of it…and the wine! He valued family above all else and cherished the time he spent with them whether it was the traditional corn roast in Wisconsin or a summer in Chicken. He reveled in family! In 2007 we spent Christmas in Italy. It was a special trip. Watching my dad use his hands to talk with the old Italian men he met. He didn’t need to know the language. His hands knew! He fit right in…especially with his Italian hat. After my mother died, my dad traveled to Chicken, Alaska every summer where he did his part in the family business operated by my sister and her husband. He worked hard and at the end of the day, enjoyed a hearty meal of caribou or salmon sitting on the deck with family and friends around the table. In the past year, I cherished the times we walked and talked…about the trees, the birds we’d see around the grounds, especially the sand cranes. We always spent some time talking about investing. I asked a lot of questions and he had a lot of answers. He was a wise investor and I tried to learn everything I could from him. In the summer, we would make trips to Leon’s for ice cream. Sometimes it was so hot, the ice cream would melt faster than we could eat it. We had fun! Until the last few months, we frequently played cribbage as we listened to Pavarotti. He loved opera. He was a dramatic guy. He often beat me at cribbage! We had fun! He was so grateful for the help he got from the people around him. I listened to him thank others and I learned another lesson. When I walk, my father is walking beside me. When I’m cooking, I sometimes find myself talking to my father: I say out loud to him, “No one could cut cabbage as thin as you could” or “You’d always be the one to debone the chicken, I think it’s because then you could sneak bites as you cut.” When I pick up my phone, my dad’s smiling face looks out at me. He had an unforgettable smile that instantly brings a smile to my face. He will forever be in my heart.

Seeing her picture here makes me think of her and how she make me sing when I was in her class. I wanted to visit her to tell her I am a teacher in Minnesota.

Don Jutz! Zorro! I barely feel worthy of being his friend but I am glad that I was. I'm a civilian and never flew missions with Don. Never put my life at risk for my fellow man like Don did. During the 25 years I knew him in Panama City, I heard the stories, not often, because Don was not a braggart, but little by little a picture was painted of a man with an amazing amount of courage and determination. When Don walked into a room it lit up, he had a big smile and a big booming voice and I was always glad to see him.Don was a generous and kind hearted sole who lived life to the fullest.At eighty years old he was still driving 40,000 miles a year. He was like the energizer bunny, there was no stopping him.I think he made his last parachute jump at 70 or 75 years old! He had so much respect for the men he served with. He was always driving to events and funerals to show last respects, sometimes as far as England. I will miss Don, as I am sure many others will but I feel I will see him again someday in the not too distant future. Kudos to Bob and his wife, I witnessed how they took care of Bob and it showed me what brotherly love really means. I am inspired by the Jutz family. God Bless , your friend Mike.

I found out about Alison’s passing couple of day ago and still processing the news. It just does not register in my head. I had privilege to meet and work with Alison in Macy’s Charter Club. Her talent, hard work, dedication and obility to work with people made a such difference in the department. We both moved on to other companies after a while, but still kept contacting with each other. Alison was so full of live, she was always positive no matter what. The last time we spoke with her was at the end of February..... it is hard to believe that Alison is not with us anymore, the World just lost an angel that was sent to us to spread kindness, love, positivity and joy. She has gone too soon! RIP my dear friend! It is hard to meet people like you in this world. I am greatly appreciated to the Universe for a chance to meet with you! You will be missed....

My uncle Fritz was a great hard working man, I am so blessed that I was able to meet my Wirth side of the family, You were like a father to me ( instead of my uncle) I will cherish all of our phone conversations, trips to Wisconsin and your trips to Florida. Loving you was so easy, losing you is so hard. You are going to be greatly missed by many but I will always hold you in my heart❤️ Heaven has gained yet another angel to watch over us.

My cousin Jerome was a very kind-hearted affectionate cousin to me. He will be missed. His weekly or bi-weekly calls asking how I was and how Aunt Elvira was, will be missed. I am glad we had the opportunity to celebrate his birthday in March, the last time I saw him, to let him know he was loved.


Mary Meissner posted on 5/30/18

Jerome was a great brother. I looked up to him and tagged along whenever I could. He loved to play tennis when we were kids, so of course I did too. I never could win a game from him. We played canasta and rummy royal, and various other games, and sometimes I won. My dad made us these wooden forts for his army men and we would play for hours. When Glen and I moved to Colorado he and Roseanne visited us in Colorado Springs and then later he traveled to Pueblo two times. He met many of our friends on these visits and he would ask about different ones from time to time. One of my past coworkers told me that she thought she knew my brother because I talked about him so much. On the birthday card he sent me this past March he wrote "Hugs and Kisses Forever". Though we were separated by many miles he was always on my mind. He will forever be in my heart. Rest in peace dear Jerome. Love you! Your favorite sister, Mary

Tony was a gentle and kind father-in-law and I will truly miss him. When I married his oldest son, Tony, in 1986, he accepted me into the family with open arms, and I truly felt blessed. Tony and I have four daughters who loved their Opa dearly. With slumber parties, Door County weekends, tropical vacations, Easter egg hunts, and much more, Opa always had such patience and joy when he was around our girls. He has left an imprint on our hearts that will live with us forever. Rest In peace, dear loved one.

I have many fond memories of playing with Heather and just hanging out at her house when we were in grade school and high school. She was a warm, loving and caring friend. She will be missed. I hope she is happy and at peace. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Alison totally touched my soul as many have you have described in your postings for the way she celebrated the beauty of the world around her loving animals and the outdoors and never missing a chance to be by the water . We worked together at Macy’s for 5 years and then kept in touch when she was at Kohls even meeting for dinner in HK . Our paths crossed again at Chico’s where she freelanced for 6 months and she was constantly looking for new ways to channel her passion for the customer with her create design talent and love of sweaters . It took my breath away when I learned the news of her passing and I also find it hard to think that I will never hear her voice again as I was proud to call her a very special friend . My heart hurts for you Rande as I know how much she loved you and that you shared a very special bond . Alison , the world will miss you xxxx


Jeff Ludwig posted on 4/27/18

Dawn, please accept our sincere condolences from Nancy and myself to you and your family. We were truly stunned to hear of Bill’s passing. Always a fun guy to be around, both at work and on the golf course. Living in the cube next to Bill in Oak Creek was educational. Bill always tried to do his best for his customers and the company. He held a wealth of information about the Cummins product and was always willing to help out a colleague. Do believe Bill would win the prize for most files stacked on his desk at one time. Sorry to see you go my friend. Hope to catch you the next time around.


Bob Sorrentino posted on 4/26/18

My condolences to Dawn and to all of Bill's family. I regret that we are not in Wisconsin and won't be able to attend his memorial service. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Bill for many years. Everyone I ever met who knew Bill liked and trusted him. Whether he was selling to you or selling for you he was doing what was right for you and doing it well. In the office, on the golf course, or over a beer, he was always cheerful and constructive... fun to be with. I'm sure he enriched many lives while he was here. He will be remembered and missed.


Linda Amann-Craite posted on 4/26/18

Dear Dawn, I just heard the news. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I will always appreciate how how easy it was to be with Bill. His smile, his teasing, and his warmth made him such a truly genuine person. He will be missed. Please give Wes and Nikki a hug for me and know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Linda

Hi Missy, I so hate to write an email to convey my sorrow. I know how terribly you must miss your mom. It sounds like things came about so suddenly and swiftly. Please know that Greg and my prayers are with you and Glen and your kids. So many memories of you as a teenager flood my mind. I ran into her some years ago at a coffee shop and she just beamed talking about you and your family. Joy certainly brought joy. She touched so many. I feel blessed to have crossed paths with her in this life. Best, Ann

Joy always took care of her little brother.


Rick Deines posted on 4/24/18

On a June evening in 2001, I gave Joy a ride home from the airport. It was time five of us returned from several days of experiencing Samaritan Inns in Washington, D.C. Joy had worked along with me for a few years in the Milwaukee Lutheran Coalition, the ELCA and Greater Milwaukee Synod’s ‘urban ministry strategy.’ That group planted the seed which was to become ‘Serenity Inns.' As we rode toward her home, I asked her about how she thought a Samaritan Inn approach would work in Milwaukee. She immediately and ‘joy'-fully said, ‘Of course. Do you think we can get support?’ I said, ‘Yes, if you would accept being the Executive Director?’ After she took a couple of deep breaths, she bubbled ‘yes, of course.’ That ‘Yes’ became the heart of SI’s mission until 2010. When folks ask how does a dream like Serenity get actualized, I point to that ‘Joy' moment. When she said ‘yes’, I knew Serenity was going to happen, someway, somehow. The internal life of the early years (2002-2010) of Serenity Inns was always a commitment bolstered by ‘hand to mouth’ sustenance. Joy’s work with Ron Jones at Siebert, her staffing beginning with Ellen Blathers and her faithfully establishing the core program of Samaritan Inns as the Serenity approach are a few ways she made it work. Along with Ellen the nitty-grittiy, thankless details that come with working with men in recovery with few resources were owned by Joy on a daily basis. She and Ellen knew commitment. That ‘team’ always showed up. She personally filled SI’s economic needs when gaps appeared between funding cycles. Serenity was her vocation, her ‘call from God.’ That I do not want to forget. That I want you to know and share. We all know the reality of loss. At the same time we know of the kind of acceptance that is possible when we don’t control things. Of course, we wait in anticipation of Joy receiving more of life as we know it. Nevertheless, we claim for her, her family, Serenity Inn, and ourselves the Spirit of life that she will live into. I trust we will be faithful to that memory. I conclude with both sadness and a renewed sense of what a compassion centered life-fulfilled can bring to a community. We continue to be gifted by Joy’s life. Thank you, Joy, and the peace that passes all human understanding keep your heart and mind in Christ Jesus, who you know as your saving presence.

I am heartbroken that Allison has passed. She and I have kept in touch ever since working together at AMC in NY back in the 90’s. We just had lunch last year when she was working for Chico’s, and seeing her was like a breath of fresh air. Her smile would light up a room and she and I reminisced and had a lovely time. I will treasure that visit forever. Please let me know when the memorial service will be. No doubt she is designing better garb for the Angels right now. I will always miss her!


Laura Griffith posted on 4/22/18

I am so sad to hear this news. Ali was such a true friend. We worked together in NYC and stayed in touch ever since. We both shared a love of kayaking and the outdoors. We spoke usually every month or so, I had been trying to reach her. RIP Ali, you will really missed. Rande and all of the family, my h art breaks for you. Rande, if you ever want to talk, don’t hesitate to call me. I wish I was closer so I could offer more. 415-999-0689.

Bill was a great friend for over 50 years. I will remember our many games of golf. It was great to meet three or four times a year, play golf and share stories of our history and future. Bill and I had two tremendous trips to Europe. We got to share many moments in history and enjoy the cultures we encountered. What made the trips so great was the opportunity to recount the unique nuances of our travels over a cocktail and dinner for years after. I have many pictures and memories of Bill that will remain for the ages. I enjoyed talking sports, politics and religion with Bill. One of many memories is attending a mass at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. For years, we both remarked how special that time and opportunity was. Bill, prepare a 'cold one' and make a tee time

Bill was the Cummins rep that had the Nordco account and I was their engineering contact. He was always willing to stop in on a moment's notice, answer any questions and provide support for the product. I felt confident that his professional friendly approach would help us resolve any engine issue we had. Rest in peace Bill.


Dave Ver Cauteren posted on 4/18/18

Bill was a very close friend of mine in the many years that he worked for Cummins. I will never forget the good times I had with him working truck shows and having a few drinks after. Then there was his golfing. You could probable still find some of his balls in the woods, pounds and farmers fields. He knew very thing about a Cummins engine and will be mist by his friends at Cummins. May he rest in peace.

Our lovely Aunty Ali, we miss you so much. We have so many memories we could share and these have been going round our heads since we heard the news. One particular fond memory is coming to visit you in New York and sitting in the front row watching the Lion King musical on Broadway and spending lazy days down at your boat club. I was a little nervous when you suggested kayaking across the Hudson river but I trusted your expertise and we had so much fun! We will miss your kind, caring, bubbly, fun nature but know that you are now at peace and reunited with Nanny, Grandad and Dad. Forever in our hearts, all our love Amy, Paul and Stanley (your great Nephew) xxxx

Ruth Creech posted on 4/14/18

Reading all of the condolences about Ali’s young life are so lovely. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I will never be able to speak with her again. She was the only person I allowed to call me “Ruthy”. I loved her like a sister. We met in 1988 when she was working as head designer at Skyr and I was a new designer hired for another division. When I first saw her she walked into the office carrying a tennis racket and wearing her cute tennis outfit. I recall thinking that we would have absolutely nothing in common and that she was probably stuck-up. For months I went to her for advice on how to use graph paper to design sweaters. I would pop my head into her office all the time to ask her questions, and she was never to busy to help me. She was one of the kindest, most down to earth, people I have ever known. No agendas, just unconditional friendship. As time passed we both went on to other job opportunities but stayed in touch and met for drinks or dinner. I remember at one of Rande’s collective art shows my backpack knocked a piece of art; a 2 foot tall avant-garde stack of plates off the wall, and it crashed to the floor with plates spinning and rolling everywhere. A woman in a black strapless dress, shrieked and ran out of the room, as the people at the show all fell back and looked at Ali and me in amazement. It was like performance art or an episode of Seinfeld. Ali kept insisting that she had knocked it off the wall, to make me feel better. We both knew it was me. She also came to visit me when I moved back to Kentucky and we toured Mammoth Cave. She was amazed at the stalactite room. Then we went white water canoeing on the Elkhorn River in Frankfort KY. It was an amazing experience for me. Because I am handicapped, it was Ali who did all the work paddling. We had martinis together in Hong Kong in honor of our birthdays. We are both quirky October babies and I felt like we were kindred spirits in many ways. Oh! and she loved shrimp and grits at Jack Fryes. But not as much as she loved Rande, her sisters and nieces and nephews and pets. She was so proud of her family. I am so sorry for your loss. For all of our loss. We spoke and emailed for months up until March 25. I wish I had known. Rest in peace dear Alison.

Ali was a warm, loving and caring human being. I always think of her with the upmost affection. I am so shocked and sorrowful.


Lindy Pedder posted on 4/10/18

Although I hadn't seen her during her adult life, I remember Ali well and can recall her going to The USA. I don't know if you remember me. I was at Newtown, Brushwood and Lowndes School, along with, Christine Denham, Jane Nutman & Angie Gilbert, to name a few. Ali being Head Girl for our year and very fondly remembered.


Jane Wood posted on 4/10/18

Alison and I were at school together and I have very fond memories of our times together. Whilst I don’t think we were ever best friends we were always friends and often in the same group and involved in the same things together. She was such a beautiful and gentle girl, always seemed to have a smile and sunny disposition and was so talented at anything artistic. I always aspired to be like her and recall often being quite transfixed (and if I’m honest a bit envious) when at the end of an art lesson, she would produce something quite wonderful. I was quite often at your home on Manor Way too, your lovely dad was for a long while one of my gym coaches and frequently, when I was supposed to be concentrating on planning gymnastic routines, instead Ali and I were off giggling and teenage gossiping instead. Very fond memories indeed. We didn’t remain in contact much as our lives moved on but my mum and yours were friends and so I kept up with Alison’s life and news through conversations they had. Please accepted my sincerest condolences, Alison was a bright, beautiful and talented lady and will be greatly missed by all who’s life she touched.


Quentin St Clare posted on 4/10/18

My abiding memories are of Ali as a creative and happy spirit, not always great at coping with social situations but with a heart full of love and kindness, and with a firm sense of self and where she wanted to be in life. On her 19thbirthday we went to a Gary Numan gig at Friars Aylesbury. She made me a Tubeway Army design red shirt for my birthday and we dressed to the nines (whatever they are). I still have it. (Though I doubt it fits ….) Support was from Orchestral Manoeuvres In the Dark, then unknown, who had just released their first single, Electricity, which I had bought. They were the loudest thing I had ever heard at that point and we had to listen from the bar. Numan was brilliant and it was one of the most memorable nights of my life. I also remember sitting in the freezing cold several times one winter at the foot of Copperkins Lane whilst she did seemingly endless sketches and paintings of the same set of trees. I have no idea whether they are still there, but I must check this weekend as I am up visiting family who still live in the area. The next birthday I received an A.Durrant original watercolour. I still have it and it is displayed in my music studio at home. She was a very talented and valuable person. I find it hard to believe that is was the end she has come to and that the opportunity to get to know her again has gone forever. It is bittersweet indeed to have all these memories stirred and such a shame it took this to do it.


Christine Denham posted on 4/10/18

I’m writing with my sincerest condolences to all, on learning of the passing of your dear Alison; a great shock to all who knew and admired her from our school days. I remember Ali with such fondness throughout our time at school; from Newtown through Brushwood and then Lowndes. I recall tea visits to Manor Way, and birthday parties there. Ali was one of the kindest, intelligent and most genuine young people I knew. She was so funny but also a sensible girl, and could relate to all. She was thoroughly deserving of her position as Head Girl at Lowndes School; voting for her to gain that post was an easy decision. During that time, I was one of the house captains; part of a little team at Ali’s side. We attended regular meetings with Miss Shaddock (the Deputy Head we were all wary of in the beginning), to discuss upcoming school events, or anything else that may have been relevant to each of our posts. Ali helped make it a pleasure to be involved in meetings with Miss Shaddock and the relationship with her quite pleasantly grew after all! During special school assemblies as part of her role, Ali took position on the main stand to address, or give a reading to all the girls. I think we all dreaded the possibility of having to read out in front of the whole school if Ali was busy elsewhere, but as I recall, this never happened. Ali took her role very seriously and carried out all aspects of it, seemingly with ease. Ali was great company during our school days; she was a beautiful person and I wish I had known her after that time. I wish you, and all Ali’s family and friends, comfort and strength for the difficult times ahead.

If it were not for Mrs. Limehouse I would not be the person I am today. Mrs. Limehouse was my 6th grade teacher at Wisconsin Avenue School. She encourgered, nurtured, discipline and loved me I felt as if I were her on son. When I completed my 6th grade year, I vowed to Mrs. Limehouse that I would for other students what she did for me. I basically became a teacher because of a distinguished 6th grade teacher I learned so much for. My heart is broken because I never got to share with her the magnitude of her influence in my life. I know the children in Heaven have just been blessed with a truly talented teacher. Praise God for your words, lessons and gifts - Tayotis

My Unplanned visit to Wisconsin in 2006 was not a planned event to see family, but rather an attempt to meet a potential partner. Well that soon went south and low and behold, my Sister Teri, Brother Tom, and Nephew Brad happen to live in Wisconsin, came to my rescue and they were more than happy to see me as was I. It was a joyess time to see my family and this is where Brad and I totally connected. We are both car guys and at the time he had a 2005 Chrysler SRT-6. It was a sweet ride that I want a ride in but Wisconsin in February is no place for a full-on sport car. The other part of the garage housed a 2006 Mustang Rough Stage III. I was in heaven. The turn of events was so great. We all communed and laughed, drank and ate everything and talked about everything that was manly of which Brad happily contributed too. It was so awesome!!! Brad was such an amazing person who got caught in a bad situation. I will miss him unconditionally. Rest in Peace little Nephew!!! Love you pard

Amber always lovingly called Brad “Brudder” and is the reason I have called my brother the same for years. Brad was always so warm and welcoming, willing to give us rides to terrible rock concerts in high school and joking with us on afternoons after school was out. I remember the best things about him, I remember his laughter, and how much he is loved. My heart breaks that he is gone. I can only imagine he’s catching up with his dad and looking out for his family from some magical other world. All my love to Teri and Amber and the rest of his family. I am thinking of you and Brad always.

Amber and Moms, I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot describe how much my heart hurts for you. What I remember most about Brad was his laugh. It was always filled with such happiness and playfulness (and a whole lot of teasing). He always treated me and Amber as a fun addition. Whether it was taking us fishing, playing cards or letting us watch him play video games. He truly was an important part of our growing up and will forever be a part of my life. My condolences to you and your family. He has gone too soon but will forever live on in the hearts of all those he touched.

My deepest condolences to Jean and family. He was always there when I needed help with one of my 'hot rods' at the Hot Rod Shop in Cudahy. The day my throttle stuck on my '56 Chevy and he was pinned to the wall was one of the scariest days of my life, but Les was back to work a couple days later, although badly bruised, working on my car (a motor mount broke putting it on the hoist causing the motor to run away with itself). He had some beautiful cars over the years and attended our St Francis National Nite Out car show a couple of times and his car and/or truck was always a hit. He will be deeply missed and my prayers go to him and the family. His suffering is over and like someone else said, he's in heaven building his new hot rod.


Catina Breier posted on 3/28/18

Les always had the answer to anything we needed, always willing to help out and just be a good listener. I only have known him for 8 years but they were the best 8 yrs of my life knowing he was in it. I will miss him deeply. Love you so much Dad


Dorothy and Randy Fare posted on 3/28/18

Jean and Les were friends since grade school at Fernwood. We had so much fun getting into trouble passing notes back and fourth. Well..... Les was passing them to Jean and I always got in trouble for passing the note!! Les was so cool, being a little older than the rest of us he had "street smarts". If you has Les as a friend you were also considered cool. He was a great guy, always willing to help. We have such fond memories of Les, his cars and his wonderful life with Jean and the boys. He will be missed by so many people he touched. We all wish he didn't suffer fighting the cancer but now he is not suffering anymore. He is riding a hot rod in heaven!! Love you Les

Emma, words cannot express how much this world is going to miss you. It was always so cool running into you around town, over the years, catching up, and just seeing how we had grown as people. The last time I ran into you when I was working at Grant was so cool. I feel lucky to have known you, and to have seen and felt how your laughter could light up a room. My heart and prayers are with Jeremy and your family, you were such an a great mother and awesome friend. Rest In Peace.

I was only informed of Gladys passing this morning. My heart feels sadness for the loss of her presence in the lives of those who knew and loved her, but joy in the knowledge that she is Home with The Lord, whom she so dearly loved. Her gentle nature, caring manner, and beautiful, angelic voice will forever be engraved in our hearts and minds. My family and I met Gladys at church and felt blessed to call her friend for many years. She helped to guide our daughters by acknowledging their gifts and gently redirecting their mistakes. May her family take comfort in the knowledge that she has joined God's angel choir and will be so well remembered by so many

I know this is late, but I wanted the family to know how much I will miss Karen. I got to know her at work, (RGIS) and because of our love for yarn, we became fast friends. She even had some of her pieces at my cousin's store in Eagle River a few years back. She had a tough life, but she worked hard and made many people happy with her crocheted gifts.

Mrs Limehouse was truly the most wonderful role model for me. She saw something in me even at a young age that she wanted me to see within myself. She cared to such about her students and you didn't realize that until you were in her class. I didn't want to leave. I always went back to visit and she loved seeing how I was growing. She had more than a job as a teacher, she held a passion for it. I heart still hurts thinking of her passing. My condolences tok her family, but at the same are so blessed to have had her in your life! To say she was WONDERFUL would be an understatement. Blessings to you and your family. She will never be forgotten in my heart.

I just wanted to say what a wonderful person Gladys was. She was a member of my church Redemption Lutheran and I got to know her through the church. She was in our choir and had a voice of an angel.

God Bless you Gladys.

It was quite an experience for me as I was still 17, after the first night Randy asked if he could borrow $5 from me, and so started a long and eventful friendship, Rest In Peace pal.


Andrew Bleick (Hoops Buddy) posted on 2/6/18

I have hundreds of memories of Randy. He was the first person I meet my first day of college in 1968. I heard him talking in the dormitory room across the hall (bragging) of his exploits the previous evening at a bar called the "Cove". I thought to myself that's where I want to go tonight. When Randy, Dale Rusch and Bruce Whitehead left for the Cove that evening I followed them about a half a block behind. I entered the bar and went down the steps to find Randy waiting for me. He yelled at me " are you following us"? I replied I was because I didn't know where the bar was. He asked "Do you like to drink beer which I replied that I did". He said O.K. you can sit with us. We bonded that night and became great friends for the rest of his life. I could post hundreds of these but that was the first!

At dear Katie’s passing we have many thoughts and emotions—sorrow, bittersweet memories, and joy all mixed up. What a beautiful and sweet spirit! Katie’s spirit always shined forth with love and care for others. Her strength of character and her physical strength were remarkable. She was not only a cancer survivor, but shortly after a radical mastectomy, she returned to work requiring her to carry heavy trays. She was a loving wife to Ed even in difficult times. As a mother, her love was lavished on her four children. She was an exceptional mother for Karen, a child with a severe disability. And she was a wonderful mother to three other incredible children who are her living legacy. Your spirit lives on in our memories and in God’s eternal embrace.

Heidi and I met in about 1957 when we were both students at UW--M. We've shared many experiences together and was one of the most intelligent people I know. If I had a problem, I knew Heidi would have the knowledge and insight to help me with it. Her family meant a lot to her, and she treasured their times together, especially around her beautifully decorated Christmas tree.

Ted has always been quiet but I remember mostly his sense of humor! And his patience! He never seemed to get upset or agitated. I felt welcome and accepted with him. I've always enjoyed visiting: it occurred to me that a lot of my experiences with Ted involved being outside: the cabin, the pontoon, fishing, jumping in the Peshtigo river, and other activities. This chapter of my life with Ted has ended. God speed Uncle Ted.

Ryck my brother you will be missed. In 1980 we rented a condo in Hartland which turned out to be a bad idea for the landlord who lived next door, Ryck liked to play his guitar loud and I of course liked to play my drums equally as loud needless to say we couldn't hear the landlord banging on the wall until we stopped playing for a minute. He didn't seem to appreciate our art as much as our little audience we always had visiting us. He was a unique individual and I always enjoyed his quick wit and unusual spin on things. I will always cherish the memories we created as young aspiring rock star's and the mayham that followed us. I will see you on the other side my friend. Condolences to Tanya his best friend and family and friends. Gone way too soon.

Ryck had a tremendous influence on so many people. I met him when I moved back to Sussex in 1973. I had just begun writing songs, and was pretty raw indeed. Ryck invited me over to his house. He had a primitive recording studio in his basement - a corner surrounded by an old shower curtain, with two tape decks that he would record back and forth on to do overdubs. He had me sing one of my songs, then he added lead guitar, bass, and harmony vocals. I was amazed. He made my song bloom! His encouragement was pivotal in driving me forward with my music, and I have always appreciated him for that. Thank you, Ryck!


Mom posted on 10/10/17

If you know Ryck you know everything Tanya said is so true. Tanya, you are your dads, and you will have a part of him with you always. His flesh and blood. That makes me happy to know, when I see you I see a part of him. When others see you they see a part of him. I love you and can not express enough just how proud I am of you and all that you did to care for your dad, you were there, doing anything and everything that needed to be done. Your dad was proud, I am proud. Everyone he touched will carry that gift with them always too. He lives on, in the hearts and minds of so many. Love you babe.

May all who loved Ryck remember the amazing, giving, loving, funny man he always was


Tanya Kapp posted on 10/10/17

You were the greatest dad. You were my best friend. I miss you more than anything that I could ever put to words. We really were the coolest father daughter pair. You were a wonderful friend to my friends and always an awesome father to anyone that didn't have one. I learned so much and loved so much and laughed so much, with you. I could only wish for more time because nothing could have made our lives better except that. We were fine as long as we could talk about it. We could solve nearly any problem in the world and if we couldn't, at least we could have a great time making fun of it. It's the hardest thing in the universe, to say goodbye to you. It's a cruel world that would take you from me like this, but I go on as your daughter, your protege, as your little clone, and I will be the best me that I can, in your honor and with your pride in me and love for me in my heart, forever. You gave me so much more than any material object, you taught me everything just by being a good human. I love you so freakin' much.

JR Saugstad "step dad" posted on 10/6/17

Adam, you and Tiff were part of the package deal when I married your mother. I can thank the two of you for me wanting to have more kids. I have so many memories that will never be forgotten. The cross country and swim meets (I never realized how much exercise parents got when they chase around the course at a cross country meet or how hot a pool area could get in the middle of winter). How about the morning I cut my hand open cutting the bagel for Derek. Getting you to school then off to get stiches. Trips to Florida or just the splashing in the pool. The life guard training classes were you finally realized how good at swimming you really were. Comparing yourself to Mike all the time and not realizing you were an excellent swimmer until you became a life guard. You were a big brother that all your siblings are proud of. Your care for everyone around, you never wanted to see anyone suffer. Thank you for our last supper together. That evening will always be remembered. Your plans to make those around you even better will always be remembered. Thank you for sharing what we had. I know you always wanted to do better and you appreciated all the help your mother and I gave you. Your pain was great. Now you can make sure my mom and Heather’s dad are behaving or is it the other way around. Love you Adam


TJ Meyers-Jansky posted on 10/4/17

Adam, you will forever be my "little man" no matter how much taller you were than me. As you grew, my shoulders became the resting place for your arms. You always made sure, where ever we were, to find something to remind me how short I was...including calling me from accross the store in "hurry get here" voice only to see you with your red face and shagrin standing next to the display head and footboard set a foot apart. You thought you were so funny...and yes, you were. When God provides life gifts, you are the best one he has ever sent my way. We have a special, unconditional bond noone can ever break. You provided a life and love in my heart and soul never to be duplicated. As a step-parent, there are many uncertainties. With you, I had none. Your family was the most important piece of your existence. When you loved, you loved with all of you, not just a part of you. The beauty within you will forever be a lasting tatoo in my mind, heart, and soul. My love for you is deeper than the ocean floor, higher than the tallest mountain, and surpasses the infinite span of the sunrise and sunset. Whether on the phone in silence, drawing cartoons, camping, fishing, attending sporting events, or playing pool, our smiles and laughter were endless. Not all was rosey, yet when there were tough times, we never gave up on each other and talked it through until once again we returned to smiles and laughter. I am so very proud of your ability to do the same with others; family, friends, and coworkers, so they could experience some of what I had. You brought great joy to my life and all those who had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with you. You will never truly be gone...only your earthly presence. I shall carry you in my heart and memories shared for the rest of my lifetime. I love you soooooo very much. I will "see you later" in the clouds.


Heather Saugstad posted on 10/3/17

My first born, my baby, my angel. You were a gift from God and I knew you would be an extraordinary man. You gave so much of yourself freely without selfishness and helped those who needed you. Your smile lit up a room and I always knew when that grin turned mischievous. I will miss teasing you about your hair color and wondering how much hair dye droplets I will find on either the wall or mirror. Or when you would say Aunt Jude will like it. I will miss your infectious laugh that just made me smile and forgot all the problems for awhile. Adam you were a great son I could've asked for, I am proud of the man you had become, you were my friend, and my angel. I love you so much, I will miss you with all my heart and soul. I'll wait to see the signs you are around watching over us. This is not goodbye as you will always be in my heart and memories. I will love you forever, I can't wait until I am with you again to hold my angel. Love always and forever. Mom

Dave was a true friend and will greatly missed. We had a lot of great times starting with surviving at Marquette as study buddies. As part of that journey he met his future wife Ginny accidently at my place while we were celebrating the end of a grueling semester. Over the years, we have maintained our friendship by sharing vacations in Hawaii, Myrtle Beach, Hampton Beach and St. Petersburg- needless to say we all loved walking on the beach. Dave’s culinary skills always made it fun to share fantastic meals. His dry sense of humor always kept us laughing and he maintained his humor until the very end. We will miss you Dave!

The "MNF boyz" will always remember our gracious host at "The Grotto" on the lower level at Balsam Ct.

Those wonderful, memorable times will be cherished forever! Rest in peace uncle Dave!

Don and Jackie Kohl, from Florida posted on 8/25/17

Farewells to dear friends are not easy. One 0f Don's(aka) Beaver) favorite sayings was "God Bless". Sadly we now say God Speed to our dear friend and it isn't easy. Jackie and I were introduced to Don and Donath by a mutual friend in the early 60's. We hit it off well and that was the start of our friendship. Don wasn't much of an outdoorsman, but he was game. I introduced him to the Canadian experience of canoeing, fishing, and portaging. When fishing Don was very good at casting his line into the trees on shore. When it came to an evening campfire, he was very helpful. He tried cutting a large tree with a small axe. That's where he got the handle "Beaver". We'll all miss this wonderful man. Til we meet again, God bless and God speed to dear friend Beaver. Our sincere condolences to our dear friend Donath and her beautiful family.

Fred, Judi, Charlie and Snoop Dog were all neighbors of ours in Nashotah. They lived across the street and as years went by our friendship grew. We loved their company, hospitality and interesting conversation. We felt so sad when they lost Charlie and now even more sad with the loss of Fred. However, we take comfort in knowing they are together in a better place. You could have not asked for better neighbors. We miss Fred deeply, his beautiful prairie, his love for: Judi, others, Snoopy, nature and how he would always brighten our days. We were truly very blessed to know such a wonderful man. I'm crying as I write this because there was only one such Fred. We shared a common background of growing up on a farm cheering on those Michigan State Spartans and for celebrating life. He is already deeply missed, but may we remember the example he set: seeing the good, living each day to the fullest and loving life even when times are so very hard.

i admired Paula for staying true to herself. She was a very strong willed, intelligent and kind lady. I remember one day she called me to come visit her. She had bought something and I just had to come see it. It was her first orchid. She kept it alive for quite sometime with an ice cube to keep it properly watered. She enjoyed her sleep, privacy, didn't gossip, liked to try new snack foods, good pizza and watching tv news, QVC and sports. She reminded me a lot of my mom who I had lost. They had April B days and were both strong loving woman. She was a great person and friend. I will miss her. My sympathy to her dear granddaughter Kris.

Fred and Judi were our wonderful loving friends for more than 30 years.Before our kids were born! We will never forget the joy the day Charlie came home. Prettiest boy baby ever! We spent Christmases together, fun in Door County, movies, dinners, theater, oh so many wonderful times! many game nights at Fred and Judi's. Delicious dinner served, then time to get down to business and play a game. Will never forget the night they taught Jimmy and me Rummikub. Turns out this rookie won the first game! Fred was beside himself. Our kids were friends, which delighted us all. One night we were at Fred and Judi's, Charlie played his guitar and sang one of his songs, just to the moon, we were.Smart and so sassy! One of my favorite memories. Jim, Casey and I were watching Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. Casey was probably about 8 or 9. Contestant was asked if he'd like to phone a friend. Casey literally shouted: "I would call Freddy Bessette!" We will never forget this extraordinary guy and exceptional friend. Love you so much, Judi!


Angie Fusco posted on 7/18/17

I have had the honor of knowing Fred and Judi since 2009. In this time I have come to know them both as wonderful friends me adpoted family! Fred was a wonderful, honorable and compassionate soul. He cared for all but doted on Judi; like a wonderful friend, companion and husband should. His courageous battle against cancer never dulled his sense of humor, compassion or love. He never once gave up or caved in, and he always put his care and concern for Judi above his own. I will miss him and his majestic laugh, his witty humor and his humility! "There are times when we will experience heartbreaking sorrow, when we will grieve and when we may be tested to our limits. However, such difficulties allow us to change for the better, to rebuild our lives in the way Our Heavenly Father teaches us, and to become something different from what we were - better than what we were, more understanding than what we were, more empathetic than what we were, with stronger testimonies than we had before." Thank you for being a part of my life Fred! I am better from knowing you! Love, peace and strength to you Judi so that you can continue to be a testimony of strength, courage and love to others, Love you friend!

Jim and Sharon Koier posted on 6/28/17

Dan was our next door neighbor. He was a bright, friendly and endearing young man. When we moved in next door he was only 7 and he loved to ask questions. Lots of questions about almost anything! Down his driveway he would go on his bike and turn and come up ours when we sat outside. He had a little man's confidence that we always got a kick out of. We had a German Shepherd when we moved here named Teddy that at first could be a little intimidating but quickly won over the 3 Jeffery boys when he would run to see them in their yard. Seems Ted thought of them as his masters as well. Dan helped us with dog sitting, shoveling etc. Dan and Dave would talk car problems with Jim and he loved to be able to have a tool they might need. Happy memories, happy times. We so wish that to be in the thoughts of all who knew and loved him. Wishing the Jeffery family peace and love and most of all, the happy memories.

Deb, Jen and family I was saddened to hear of Larry's passing. He was a gentle, kind and inspirational human being someone that I would certainly strive to be like. I always felt welcomed in your home by Larry and remember the occasions we celebrated when employed at TRG. I wish we would have kept in contact. I will always remember Larry with a smile on his face nothing seemed to get him down or discourage him. My prayers and thoughts are with the Raschella family.

My dear friend Deb, Jen & Kurt, Anna & Sawyer my heart felt sadness cannot be expressed with words because the lost has a void in so many hearts but more importantly yours. My prayer is that in time the happy loving memories I know were shared through the many years will help to comfort you. I will forever miss Larry. The way Larry showed his kindness to me was in a way very few people I have known has. For many years I shot sporting clays with Larry and Debbie as well as other friends. Week after week I shot with a gun that didn’t fit me correctly. My hand would quickly turn black and blue from the trigger guard hitting it with every shot. In spite of that I kept shooting and improving but had trouble with certain types of shots. Larry wanting to help me improve noticed my hand and was shocked that I keep shooting when something was obviously wrong. He watched me shoot and very quickly realized what was happening and knowing he could fix it asked if he could have my gun to make adjustments. From that day on I’ve been so thankful I can do something that I still enjoy but now painless because of Larry’s extraordinary kindness. I have witnessed his admirable soft spoken positive attitude, sincere patience, unconditional encouragement as well as been gifted with receiving for which I will hold as a special memory. Love and Prayers, Judy Ristow

Barb and I had so many adventures together. One of our favorites to talk about was when we were in our early 20s and we went on our first horseback ride. Barb got on her horse and took off like a shot, galloping at full speed. I was amazed, I thought to myself 'wow is she good' - while I was struggling to just get my horse to walk! I'd kick him like you're supposed to do, yell, nothing worked. I got off my horse and started leading him, and while he was slowly walking I'd quick get in the saddle and low and behold he'd stop again! I think finally a stable hand gave him a slap on the rear and finally started ambling along. When I finally caught up to Barb, besides wondering where I was, she all red faced and out of breath and I asked her what happened. Well come to find out she didn't know how to ride at all and said she was holding on to the reins and the saddle horn for dear life hoping against hope she wouldn't fall off!!! I was laughing so hard and she was near tears and angry at the same time, but in time we were both able to laugh at this memory as we have done many many times throughout the years. This is just one of many memories I have with Barb - she was my very best friend. She was funny, loyal, generous, everything you'd want in a friend and I already miss her so much. I hope she's looking down on all of us and smiling. You were the best Barb and I love you always. ❤️

Dearest Debbie, my younger Sister and friend. The troubles of this world are off your shoulders and you are now in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Mom, Dad and Sandy!!! Though he called you home much too soon, we take comfort in the knowledge he has a wonderful plan for you. I will forever have those memories of us growing up and keeping our parents on their toes. I clearly remember the day you lost your two front teeth on the front concrete steps in Wauwatosa, at the age of two. Dad teased you for a long time after that. You grew up to be a beautiful young woman and went on to become a loving Mother and Wife. I miss you terribly and look forward to the day we will be together once again. Rest well my Sister and know that you will be missed everyday. I will always love you and remember all the good times we had. Your loving older, and "only" Brother, Jim and Bob too!!

I miss calling you all the time even when I don't have anything to talk about and coming over your house everyday. Mason also misses you and looks for you all the time but I believe he knows what's going on with his "yaya" but I will make sure he remembers you and all the fun things you guys use to do. Thank you for working so hard for us girls and doing everything you could do. I wish to be the mother you were for us for my son. I Love You! See you Later. Your youngest Stephanie (Pony).

Debbie, you are not hurting anymore, I understand...but God took you home way to soon. I miss you terribly, your caring, your quick wit, your sensitivity to others...and so many other attributes. My sweet sister, life here will never be the same without you, at least I have all those memories of you growing up from that cute little "toehead" into a beautiful young lady and then motherhood, grandma and great-grandmother. You were also a wonderful sister, aunt, sister-n-law and niece to many. Everyone who came in contact with you loved and accepted you immediately. I loved you then and now and always will. Til we meet again, sweetheart, your memory will live with me and Dwayne forever.

Many years ago Kathy managed our beer tent at Summerfest. She was extremely friendly and caring. She watched out for our group like a mother hen. She called us the shirts because we always wore colorful Hawaiian shirts. She scolded us when we were a little out of hand and laughed with us at the zillions of crazy things that can happen at the Fest. We will toast this wonderful woman at Summerfest this year. She passed away way, way, too early. Thank you Kathy for everything. VERY SAD.

Many from Maple Grove have called her Momma G. I am included in those blessed to have had her for a second mom! She taught me to bake bread (as well as other yummy goodies). She taught me to sew. She taught me to counted cross stitch. Funny story. She always considered me a somewhat stubborb child, so it was no suprise to her when I wanted her to teach me counted cross stiching and she told me to pick out a little pattern and she would teach me. I came back with a very intricate, large 8 x 10 pattern (maybe bigger). She shook her head and tried to explain that I needed to start out small or I would get bored and wouldn't finish it. She was right, I was a stubborn child. She finally said ok but that she didn't think I would ever finish it. Well, it was on. I was going to prove to her that I wouldn't get bored and I would finish it. She would just shake her head and smile as I stubbornly worked on it. I think the day I showed her that I had finished, probably a couple of years later, she was shocked. I told her it was because she had challeneged me that I did finally finish it. If she hadn't, I probably would not have. She helped make me who I am today, and I will be forever thankful to have grown up in a neighborhood like ours, where our parents got involved in each others kids' lives. Thank you Momma G for being a mentor and a loving second mom to me! I will miss my little "hola momma". ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Mrs. Geppert was one of my most favorite ladies growing up. She was like a second mom. She always made me feel welcome and loved in her home. She called me the neighborhood pet, which made me feel immensely special. She was a gem and treasure. My heart and love go out to her family. I know she is up in heaven with all the greats that beat her to the pearly gates! Your smile and warmth will never be forgotten Mamma G.

Growing up I had a little sister, I spent so much time at the Gehrke's house that Beth became like an older sister. Always giving Matt and I advice on how to stay out trouble or even how to get out of trouble. Thanks Beth. My sincere condolences to the Van Ert and Gehrke families.
