While words cannot express how devastated we are with the loss of our friend, mother, grandmother and mate, we also celebrate and are grateful for what she has given us. Her love, kindness, knowledge and compassion she shared with so many will remain forever. Throughout her life, she meant different things to different people. When you recall the times she touched your heart, please find a way to smile. For those of us who knew her as a dreamer, we will look to the clouds and name the things we see until they softly melt away.
Survivors, besides her husband, David, include her children, Brianna (Tony) Cacchione, New Glarus, Ty (Jaime) Carrigan, Mosinee, Rosalie (Travis) Franz, Windsor, and Jessalyn (Ryan) Ericsson, Sheboygan; eight grandchildren, Ze’, Bo, Camryn, Dayne, Avryl, Macklin, Brynlee and Vaughn; and three siblings, Michael (Judy Zika) Schlei, San Diego, Calif., Mary Landrath, Stevens Point, and Donna (Mark) Sunderson, Olathe, Kansas.
