Watching the Boys grow up Dan, Mike & Tony and make their respective families and Friends I also have known his Mom and Dad Irene & Peg and his Sisters and Brother Celeste Dede & Albert and have been a part of Gary’s second Marriage to Beth whom will miss him terribly. I will miss him because if I had a question he would always have the answer. I will miss the pranks he would pull on occasion. You always knew where you stood with Gary.

  17. I am Rosie Rogers from Milton,Fl. Born and raised by Edward and Lucille Doerr, in Stillwater,Minnesota. June was my aunt who was married to my uncle Lloyd Waldroff. My memories of June are fond, fun and loving. My aunt played an accordion and I would sit and listen wishing I could play. I last saw June in March of 2018 when I made a trip to Minnesota to see my family. When I went to June’s home she did not recognize me when I first asked if she could help a needy person, she looked at me really suspiciously and I quickly identified myself. The tears, laughs and hugs were many then we reminisced over our lives past and present. She was a great cook, hard worker and loving and will be missed by anyone who knew her. Thoughts, prayers and love to her family. God needed another angel who is kind,loving and one who could play heavenly accordion music and she was chosen.

  18. We have lost not just a brother in law, but a very special friend who has shared travels with us and the ups and downs that come with family. He was a special son in law to pam, steve and my parents. They are brokenhearted, as we are. We will miss your unique sense of humor, and looking across the yard to see if it is coffee time. Our first cup up north will be on your deck. Rest in peace, miss you and love you always. Annette and Donald

  19. Sorry for your loss . Condolences to your family . He was a very nice man . Always put smile on people’s faces .

  20. Barb and family,
    So very saddened to hear of Doug’s passing.
    Prayers and thoughts of strength are with you all during this difficult time.
    What a true gem of a man he was. We would have the perfect world if we all could be as kind as Doug.
    Treasure the memories,
    Mary Sobota

  21. Our sympathy to the entire O’Connell family. We are so grateful to have known Tom (and Janet) and will always remember the good times and laughter!

    Very funny and very kind!
    What a great soul!

    Kerri O’Connell-Adami

  23. On behalf of the current members of the Hudson Police and Fire Commission, I wish to thank Tom and the O’Connell family for the 45 years of service to Hudson and the community that Tom gave so unselfishly and the entire family contributed to during Tom’s time on the commission. He was absent from the family a lot during this time.
    It has been my great pleasure to have known Tom for the past 45 years since I have lived in Hudson and have witnessed all he has given to the community. Thank you.
    Bob Staebell

  24. Tom was a true pillar of the community…one of the best people I knew. He was a friend of my dad’s, and so very kind and helpful when Dad died. Seeing him at a visitation was always a bright spot for me at a sad time (and his hug was comforting). He will be so incredibly missed, but I’m happy for him that he’s reunited with his loved ones. Thanks, Tom, for all you did for so many.

  25. We were saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. Tom and my dad went way back with their friendship. I always loved when he would come to Arby’s. Our condolences and prayers are with his family!

  26. So sorry for your loss, he was a great friend. Lots of good memory
    I’ll never forget him.
    Bill and Bev Landasl

  27. I was saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. O’Connell. He was truly a man of great heart. When my family was at our lowest moment when we lost our middle daughter Tom (Mike and the entire staff for that matter) was there supporting us and understanding how great our loss was to us. My deepest condolences to the family and all who loved him. Mr. O’Connell’s smile and infectious heart will be deeply missed.

  28. Barb and family,
    May God Bless and comfort you at this time of loss. I haven’t seen Doug since I left the Oriskany in 1964, the photo with him sitting on the green gator looks like it could have been taken the last time I saw him. My memories of him are that he was always a kind, gental and pleasant individual, and most of all a great friend on the high seas. Since I was only 5’5″, I literally looked up to him, great times and very fond memories. May God Bless and keep him and all of you, his family.

    Gary and Linda Fox

  29. Barb and family,
    Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
    With sympathy,
    Tom and Chrisann

  30. Barb and family
    Doug and his smile will be missed will always remember how he drove the gator to the park to see Hayden.
    Hugs and blessings may memories fill the hole you feel in your heart right now.
    Deb and Zane

  33. Mr.O’ Connell was a great force in helping Hudson grow quickly into what it is today! He will surely be missed by everyone who’s ever met him briefly or known him a lifetiime. My prayers go out to the O’Connell Family especially Kathy whom I”‘ve known since grade school.

  34. Tom’s smile always made people feel welcome. He always had time to say hi and talk. So many memories of him and Dan. His family is a testament to the wonderful father and grandfather he was. My prayers are with the entire family, especially Mike and Kaitlyn.

  35. Mike & Carla and the entire O’Connell family. I truly LOVED your Dad, from the moment I met him he was a person who drew you in and cared about you even if he had just met you. Tom was a huge advocate of me as SCC Treasurer and our connection at the county level and after that was always there. I appreciated his loyalty and honest to everyone he met and everything he did.
    While the reunion filled the sky with stars – I know your heart is hurt to lose that parent. Hugs to you all and my deepest sympathies!

  36. Mark and I send our most sincere condolences to the family.

  41. Tom will be missed by many. He was always friends with whomever he met. On behalf of the Bakken family’s, we send our condolences and will keep the family in our prayers.

  42. Tom was a great role model for all of us. He was truly a great man who gave so much to others. I have many personal memories of him. I recently reminded him of one of them. I was never so grateful to see Tom on that day so many years ago.
    There was just nothing like he and Janet together though and knowing they are again is comforting.
    God Bless the family as they struggle through this loss now. Kathi you were a godsend to your dad as you took care of him these last few years. Love you girl. Hugs and prayers for all of you.

  45. We were saddened to hear about the loss of your son, Eric. Our sympathies to you and your family. Our prayers are with you. May your faith and the love of family and friends comfort you in your time of sorrow.

  46. Eric will never be far from our hearts and minds as we continue to walk in the maple woods that he loved so much. The deer hunting expertise he learned from my brother Bruce made him our top scout. He knew where every deer was and where they would travel. When he joined Weiss Woods Maple Syrup in 2014 our plan was for him and the younger ones to eventually take over the business in the years to come. Thanks Eric for being a part of our lives. It was a lot of fun being with you and working with you. .

  47. Our sympathies to the entire Weiss family – – –

    Eric was a great guy! We always enjoyed having him over to play “mini-basketball” with our son, Eric, and all their friends!

    You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time…

    Sincerely, Jay and Karen Schmechel

    My condolences, and I hope that these Scriptures will help you endure the loss of Mr. Olson, for Jehovah is the God of all comfort. “Do not be anxious…..but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 26:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Philippians 4:6-7 NWT.

  72. Very sorry to hear of Jerry passing away. My sincere sympathy to his family. Jerry and I were teamates at UW EauClaire for four years.and being in athletics you become friends for life. I will always fondly remember him. Mike Rajek

  73. I was one of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Eau Claire students who were fortunate to have Joy as a teacher. One of the things I remember most from her classes were the many exotic souvenirs she brought home from her trips around the world to use in her classes. She would put some of the items on display in a cabinet outside her classroom door and then offer clues to their identity, leaving her students to discover what they might be. It was hands on learning at its best. She was easily one of the best teachers I ever had and the love of learning she inspired in me served me well into graduate school and beyond. She was truly a bright and wonderful spirit whose passing makes the world a darker place. Peace and love to you John on your loss.

    Todd A Hanson
    Los Alamos, NM

  74. So sorry for your loss. Memories are so precious at this time. He was a special man and one to be proud of. Our sincere sympathy! !

  75. Our sincere sympathies to you Pam and all your family. Hope all your beautiful memories will bring smiles among the tears. Marilyn (Rieck) and Larry Dahlberg

  76. So sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. I worked for Jerry in 1972 at 35th Street. He was such a fun boss, always willing to help and provide advice to a new supervisor ( which I was). I eventually ended up taking over his Manager position several years later. Those walls had a yellow glow since Jerry and Pete used to smoke cigars in his office. I had the opportunity to work with him later in my career with Ameritech. He was always willing to share information and give you the inside scoop. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Lana & Bob

  77. Dear John,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Joy was an amazing person.
    She was a “joy”. I so enjoyed seeing you guys when you
    came in for your dental cleanings. I miss you.
    Please take care of yourself and know you’re in my
    prayers.

    Carol Evans (former hygienist at Menomonie Street Dental)

  78. To the family of Joy Beck my sympathies. I was lucky to have Mrs. Beck for 7th grade geography in the early 60s. Her tales of her bike trip in Europe inspired me to go there myself. One of my favorite teachers.

  79. Very sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. I headed the Construction organization in 1991 and Jerry was responsible for the State of Wisconsin. He did a wonderful job, was on top of everything and the people in his organization had a deep respect for his management and most importantly they all revered him as a person. We even fished together a couple times. Chuck Hempfling

  80. Such sad news!. Worked for “Jerry” at SBC/AT&T several years and enjoyed every one. He will always be remembered for his honesty, integrity and sense of reality when it came to unreasonable corporate demands. A true “Telephone Man”!

  81. Uncle Jeffy and family we’re very sorry for your loss ! Our thoughts and prayers are with you . ❤️ Connie, Susie and Bruce

  82. My heartfelt sympathies to all of you, I only met her a few times, she seemed such an awesome woman. Kind thoughts and prayers to everyone in the family.

  83. My heart aches and my head hurts because of my love for you! I am truly blessed to have you as my Anut! Until we meet again, you will always live on in my heart.

  84. I was very sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. When I heard he had moved to Hudson, I hoped our paths would cross. I have fond memories or the fraternity and canoe trips. Mark F. and John L. always kept me up to date on Jerry at the deer shack each fall. You are in our players.
    Steve & Rhoda

  94. My sweet Cherie. You have finished your journey on earth and I can only imagine Jesus welcoming you and the heavenly reunion you have already had with my Mom – your Grandma Lilly, and my sister Darlene – your Mom (among many others). And as you stand there in God’s presence, I believe, you will understand completely for the first time what love really is and how much our Jesus loves each one of us. What a blessing you have been to us – Remember my last words to you, “I love you and I’ll see you on the other side.”
    Auntie Pam

    Cheryl could easily make me smile.
    She brighten your day and gave you
    reason to believe that you mattered.
    I will miss the lady dearly. Heaven
    please welcome a special angel.

  101. My Father, Howard Brown,was with Bill at WinterGreen and on to Pine Ridge .

    Life he had. I will miss his presence. A loss for sure.
    Sincerely
    Patti Muenich

  114. I know there are no words that could bring any kind of comfort for Scott’s tragic loss. Evelyn looks just like her daddy when he was that age, I hope holding her close gives you some comfort knowing you’ll always have a part of him in her. I know he’ll be forever watching over her. Peace and love to the whole family.

  115. My deepest condolences to friends and family of Tom. He was a very precious man. He had such a sweet spirit about him, and always be in our hearts.

  116. I am so sorry for your loss. Audrey was the best mother-in-law anyone could be blessed with. She was always kind, loving, understanding and thoughtful. Her smile, sense of humor and loving nature always lifted me up. Her family meant everything to her and she was a doting proud Grandmother. May your memories of her love sustain you in your time of sorrow.

    Sincerely,
    Jean Cassidy

  117. Prayers,hugs & love to you & Evie at this horribly difficult time.May God wrap your both in his arms.Love you both.

  118. My prayers and thoughts of strength are with the Gossel family during this life changing difficult time.

  119. I want to express my condolences. It was a pleasure taking care of Audrey and getting to know her. I always liked doing her hair, and I know she will be missed.

  120. Samantha and Evelyn, We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers hold you close through this loss and time of grief.
    with sympathy and Love,
    Michelle, Bruce and family

  122. I am so very sorry for your loss! What a special, sweet lady Audrey was. I will miss seeing her and chatting with her during the week. She was always so pleasant and I know I can speak for all the employees at Park View (and other residents), that she will be missed so much. My prayers and sympathy to each and everyone of you during this sad time!

  123. RIP Rich, I remember well our locker buddy talks. My thought and prayers to the families you leave behind.

  124. I am so sorry for your loss! I loved Audrey so much! I enjoyed talking with her in the evenings when I was the Nurse on Unit 1. She always had a smile for me. I respected her just like I do my own Mom. Her thoughts and opinions mattered to me. She was a very pleasant woman. I loved taking care of her. She will be truly missed by me!

  125. My mother, Gertrude Vanda, and I met Mary 3 1/2 years ago when my mother moved into Wintergreen Apts. Mary was always friendly and gracious. We remember our last lovely visit with Mary a couple weeks ago at the Wednesday Catholic Mass at CCH. She shared with us how she was enjoying beautiful classical music programs on PBS and her concern for the wellbeing of a fellow resident that was missing Mass that morning. My mother and I send our condolences to her family and friends. Mary was a dear friend to all.

  126. So very sorry for your loss. I so enjoyed Audrey when I was working at Park View. She was a pure delight. Always had such a great sense of humor and always so thoughtful to us workers. Loved her like a mom. Again so very sorry to hear of her passing. She will be missed by myself and others.
    Love to you all.
    Roxi Tunheim

  127. I’ve always looked up to Mark. The amount of self confidence and determination he possessed was something I rarely find in life. I see a lot of people to try and project that kind of confidence but Mark owned it. I have nothing but great memories of him from high school. I knew Mark well enough to know he would have hated me writing anything about him. I just know he would tell me to shut up right here while rolling his eyes and smirking.

  128. To Mary and family of Leigh. It saddened me so to hear of Leigh’s passing. He meant so much to me and taught me so much more than wrestling. I shared with him every time I came to see him or on a call, how much influence he had on me as to the teacher and coach I have become. He truly is a part of me and always will be. As it came time for me to go, we would always hug and share a smile and it was always see you later, not good bye. He will always be in my thoughts. God bless, Craig Nasvik

  129. Genevieve has always greeted me kindly from the very first time I met her 20 years ago. I enjoyed my time caring for her last winter . I am glad to hear she passed peacefully. Condolences to the entire Hafner family.

  130. Leigh and his family were part of our First Baptist Church Family. I remember him there and in school as a great person. What a beautiful obituary and tribute to him. My condolences to all of his family and friends.

  131. Tony was one of the first gentlemen I played cribbage with last year during the St. Croix County Senior Citizens Card Tournament. He was always happy, engaging, a challenging opponent and fun partner. Thank you Tony for the privilege.

  132. Where do I begin? One of the first classmates I remember when I went to Hudson in 6th grade. He was like a brother to me in college and we fought like we were too! He was a good guy and he touched so many……we will miss him. May he rest now. Peace

    Charlene and Steve

  133. Many golf balls, squarely struck.
    Many softballs, soundly belted.
    Many stories, freely shared.
    Many memories, forever cherished.
    Large footsteps, for us to follow.
    A life well led.
    Rest easy, my friend.

    Mike Foster

  134. So sorry to hear of Geni’s passing, she was a sweet, caring, compassionate lady whom I admired. Michele, Bernie and entire Hafner family you have our sincere condolences.
    Rest in peace Geni!

  135. My condolences to your family. I remember Gen as a friendly little lady that I enjoyed visiting with. She was always so sweet and reminded me of my dear mom. I am so sorry …..

  136. Our hearts break for all of you during this difficult time. We know that God will guide you through this and we will be praying that you can feel His love and comfort. Maycee we are here for you. Alex wanted you to know he is praying for you too. We will continue to keep you in our prayers.

  137. Al and Lyn, I can’t imagine how difficult the last couple of years have been for you. I hope you can somehow find the strength to handle this. I want you to know that in almost 40 years of coaching, Mark was at the top of my list. I shared the passion he had for the game which made coaching a ton of fun. I regret that I never shared that with him. Kathy and I would like to express our heartfelt condolences!

  138. Mary Ann, Forrest, Clare & Graeme,
    My heart goes out to you and the rest of the family as you remember your mom & grandma. I hope you will find some comfort and peace as you gather to honor her. She has left an incredible legacy.

    “Legacy. What is a legacy?
    It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see.”

    But this garden will be tended by the best people.

    Much love to you all.

  139. Rob, Tara and Family,

    So sorry to hear about your loss. I’m sure you all have very special memories to hold onto. Don’t hesitate to ask if there is anything that I can do.
    Prayers to all.

  140. We are unable to personally share your grief and want you to know how sorry we are for your family’s loss. Praying for all of you!

  141. To Mary Besser’s family, so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing, When I brought communion to her she always talked of her children and grandchildren. She had a love for quilting and playing cards. May she rest in peace. Karen.

  142. Condolences from Germany. We learned to know Tony at the family reunion last summer during our visit in Minnesota. He was a very funny man. I‘m sure he will be missed very much.

  149. My thoughts and prayers to all of you.
    Gaylen was such a kind and gentle soul. Always smiling, always ready to talk horses with me! I know our mom treasured the visits he made to her when he came north. Cousin Bonnie Lundorff

  150. I sorry for your loss. I have a said alot of prayers for your family will have the strength to get through this. He will be missed. I loved my uncle. I may not be able to attend. You are in my prayers. I will never forget him smiling. I will not forget his voice.

  151. I had the distinct pleasure of working hand-in-hand with Gaylen on some big projects at the King Plant. I had a fond admiration for him. He always had a nice way of telling me “no”. I learned a lot from him and was honored to work with him. I will miss him greatly. God Bless

  152. Many good times were had with Gaylen who lived just down the road from us. Country School, Deer Hunting,Hill River Lake fishing just a few.I will always remember the good times together.Our sympathy Dianne and family.

  153. Gaylen was loved by everyone who met him. The world is a sadder place without him. My heartfelt sympathy Dianne and family.

  156. To the Holsteen family, particularly Faith and Steve who were faithful Camp Merrill campers! My heartfelt sympathies to you and your families. I have the fondest memories of you and remember visiting FB in Omaha in at least one occasion. I am struck by how much you both look(ed) like your father. I remember your stately elegance and sweet demeanors and imagine that was tenderly nurtured by both of your parents. Much love to you all.

    With fondness,

    Wendy Fisher Grimm

  157. Judy, Ralph and family,

    My condolences. Will always remember Floyd’s smile and mischievous twinkle in his eyes.. May your memories lift you in the days to come.
    Prayer and blessings,
    Deb and Zane

  158. Praying for you in your loss of such a special man. Gordon was the kindest person and I was fortunate to have him as my boss for a few years. He was a great man who really cared about others. He will be missed by so many. May God comfort you in your time of loss…..

  159. To Patti, the kids, and the rest of the family. Georgia Soucie sent me the obit. Verle was my first boss in the ministry, helping to mentor a truly green and impressionable young youth pastor. He was always so positive, and I still quote the poster he had hanging on his desk in Omaha: A picture of a gopher reared up on his hind legs with dandelions hanging out of his mouth, and the caption which read, “I eat problems for breakfast”. That was Verle! It was a joy to work with him, spend time in Verle and Patti’s home, and do ministry together.
    He actually called me just a year or two ago, totally out of the blue. What a pleasant surprise; I hadn’t talked to him in maybe 25 years! He sounded the same as he always had.
    I sometimes use a funeral sermon outline that I learned from him while he was doing Agnes Nelson’s funeral in 1990: Three C’s. Celebrate their life. Comfort the bereaved. Challenge the people. I have since passed that outline on to some I have mentored from the next generation.
    God bless all of you as you grieve, and celebrate a life well lived!
    Rev. Paul D. Thompson, Lead Assembly of God, Lead, SD
    Minister of Youth & Christian Education, First Baptist Church, Omaha, NE, 1983-1995

  160. Jill and I will remember Verle for the legacy he created. It is said a person is best understood by the people who loved him. Verle is loved by many, many people and will be remembered for the way he touched their lives as a Pastor and friend. Jill and I have had the privilege of getting to know Verle through the legacy of his children. Verle was an American Baptist Pastor and in that role a colleague of mine but he was much more, He was the father of Faith, Steve and Dave and the husband of Patti. If that is all you knew about him, you would understand he was an incredible man. His legacy of faith in Christ Jesus continues in his children in a multitude of ways. His legacy as a Pastor continues throughout this country. It is our blessing to have been introduced through his children as I had the privilege of being Faith and Steve’s pastor for a time. Verle was a wonderful support of our ministry. He lives in Christ’s eternal Kingdom, but he also lives in the lives of those who knew him and loved him. Well done, good and faithful servant, now receive the crown of righteousness which the Lord you loved and served promised.

    Bob and Jill Roesler

  161. To the Family of Rev Holsteen, May the passing of time ease your sorrow and surround you with comforting memories. Pastor Verle was our pastor in North Platte, Ne 1965 – 1971. He was our pastor in 1969 when Suzanne and I were married , he was a family Friend to the Leets also. With Deepest Sympathy , Tom and Suzanne Leet.

  162. Have wondered about Verle and family or some time. Thank you for posting and in the Omaha paper too. Condolences to all. Lots of good memories of this family in Omaha. Peace.

  163. To Carol:
    Carol, I don’t know if you will remember me. I’m Janet Sedgwick McGill, one of your high school classmates. I recall we were in Band together. My deepest condolences to you and your family. May God be with all of you during this difficult time.

Always had a smile and was so sweet with his manners and appreciation for anything you would do for him. He will be missed. But what a long wonderful life. Good bye Gene. So glad I got the chance to meet you and get to know you.
    Love to all the family.
    Blessings to you all.

  165. Diane and I were classmates at Waldorf College and I will always remember her beautiful high soprano voice. Diane sang a solo within the concert choir about a rose being touched by the sun’s warm rays. Odvin Hagen, our director, would always be in bliss hearing her sing. I’m sorry for your loss. I am a sister of Conrad Johnstad. All the Haugens were great singers. Hattie was a fantastic pie baker as well. God bless Diane’s memory. She was a wonderful, kind person.

  166. My sympathy for all the family. I knew Mayelva from when I was a kid. She would come to our house selling Avon. She was always so cheerful and pleasant. Such a kind lady.

  172. Nancy, Mark, and Mike. I’m sorry for your loss. Our condolences from Georgia. Loved your mom and dad and enjoyed time at your home when Vince and I were still around there.

Hugs to all of you!

  175. My sympathy to Gerald, children and all family members of Mary Jane.
    Oh so many memories and fun times growing up in White Lake, SD as classmates and friends—night time hide and seek, softball in the vacant lot, games of jacks on our neighbors sidewalk because it was the smoothest, after high school play practice trips to find haunted houses in the country, Friday night football games, Sunday afternoon Legion baseball games and so many more. Rest in peace and watch over all of us; we will always remember you.

  176. My deepest condolences go out to Gerry Ries and the family.
    Mary Jane created a very friendly and heavenly atmosphere with her kind and warm presence. My wife was new to this country and Mary Jane helped her in many ways to get her acquainted with the customs and surroundings here. She was content on earth and is surely peaceful in heaven

  177. My deepest sympathies go out to the Ries family, especially my friend and former boss Gerry. Mary Jane was a warm, kind and friendly person with a smile that could light up a dark room and the most contagious laugh. I, among many who were blessed to know her will miss her unfailing cheerfulness and blithe spirit. Rest in peace, Lovely Lady.

  178. A place in Heaven for Mary Jane. A true, loving friend, and a great mother and grandmother. Will miss her so much. May you hear the Angels sing.

  179. Condolences to the family from the Class of 1965 … Mary Jane was a fun-loving high school classmate and friend. You will dearly be missed.

  180. The St. Croix County Historical Society has coordinated with the Hudson Area Library to have memorial donations in Nancy’s name used to keep the Library’s History room open for the general public’s use.

  181. Nancy was such a dedicated and brilliant worker in all her genealogical and local history pursuits. I remember our talking together for a long time on the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference ship tour in Pittsburgh in Sept 2017. It was a delightful visit. I loved and appreciated her even more. May Art and her family be comforted at this time and forever. We will miss you, Nancy.

  182. Dane and family – You are all in our thoughts and prayers! Deb was always a very community minded person and thus made our community a better place to live!

    Our sympathy goes out to all of you!!

  183. Bob was a wonderful cement mason. Many years ago he and his crew of men hand dug and built my cement basement under my house. He also did the cement work for my patio and my sun room many years later. I could always count on him to help with any cement projects around my farm. He was a good man to call for quality work and a long day’s work.

    Bob I am sure will be working on the foundations in heaven making sure that things are in good condition without cracks!

  184. May you rest in Peace, Nancy.
    You will be missed so much by so many; you leave a big hole in all of our hearts.

  190. John Cameron was one of my earliest educators in English. As my life as a writer evolved, I am sure that the early grounding and structure that he provided was a powerful force in building my capabilities.

    Those who form us when we are young are pushing forward their legacy into the next generation.

    For his contribution to my life, I thank John, and remember him fondly.

    Thank you.

  205. Oh how Ginny will always remain loved and special in my heart!
    When I was a teenager and into my early 20’s (over 30 years ago) I used to work at the A&W in Baldwin. Ginny and Dick would come in after church on Sunday’s, amongst other times, and I would love when they sat in my section. I was always greeted with huge hugs from them!
    At that time tips were shared amongst the servers. Ginny would hand me the tip directly and tell me it’s just for you. She meant it too!
    At one time she actually reached in and put the dollar bills in my bra. We laughed together and I remember her laughter being so contagious!
    Thank you Ginny for being a part of my fabric! God’s Peace and Prayers!
    ~Kelli (Jensen) Cadwell

  213. Joan and family, Kevin and I send our deepest sympathy with the loss of Phil. Gone to soon. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  214. Joan, words can not tell of the sadness we have for the loss of such a good man. Our hearts are breaking for you and your whole family, and the void there will be without him next to you. I am so thankful for that wonderful visit we had with Phil while he was on a stay over in Bismarck. How his eyes light up when we talked of grandkids and his laughter will stay in my memory forever. Please know that we are holding all of you in prayer and sending you our love. I pray that memories will bring comfort and God, family and friends will hold you in their arms at this sad time.

  215. Chuck was a very generous man. Not only with his caring personality but also his real concern. In 1988 when I was laid off, he sent me a check for $500 to help with my family needs. He wrote on the bottom of the check “Please accept this money to help with your family needs for food, expenses, etc. Don’t send it back as I won’t accept it. When you get back to work, find another deserving person and pass it on” It brought me to tears and I will never forget it. A year later I found another deserving person…and passed it on.
    He and I were friends ever since we met in the army in 1963.
    May God bless this good man.

  216. Dear Joan and family,
    I’m so very sorry about the passing of Phil, what a shock No words
    Can comfort you at this time but just remember that friends and family are here to help you through this very painful time.
    With much love.

  217. I’m so sorry to read of Bob’s passing. While working at CCH, he was always a joy…. always made me smile! Rest In Peace Bob!
    Fond Memories!
    Tanya Deyo

  218. Joan,
    I am so shocked and saddened to read of Phil’s passing on Facebook. I appreciated him as a member of our church and his work in the church, as my auto mechanic, as a good friend, and as a community businessman. Words fail us at a time like this; however, may God’s Spirit surround you with His supporting arms; may He comfort you each and every day during which your hearts ache; and may He give you the assurance of eternal life for Phil. Marion and I send our love, and you and your family will be in our prayers. Pastor Leon

  219. Joan and Family,
    We were customers in Phil’s new business venture. We were deeply saddened by the hearing of his passing. You have are deepest sympathy and condolences. In our short time knowing each other, we became fond of him, he always had a smile on his face with his distinctive laugh.
    Wishing you peace,
    Andy, Ryan, and Kevin – Certified Transmission

  220. Joan and family,

    Dave and I are so saddened to hear of Phil’s passing. Our hearts ache for you and the kids to have to experience this terrible loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We pray that you find comfort and peace in God’s love and support of family and friends.

  221. My sincere condolences to Hank’s family and friends.The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences a human can face. The words quoted at Isaiah 25:8 have comforted me greatly. It reads :”He(God) will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” May you find hope and comfort in knowing that, soon, by means of God’s Kingdom, no one will ever fall prey of this merciless ‘enemy’(1 Corinthians 15:26).

  222. Hank and Donna have been our neighbors for many years. He was kind and always kept an eye on our house, more than once calling us to let us know we left the garage door open when we headed out of town for the weekend. We watched over the years when you had to give up riding your cycle and eventually selling it and your truck. It was hard to watch your disease take away your ability to get around and take the things you loved. In recent years you put smiles on our faces watching you sit in your wheelchair in the sun watching neighbors go by waving to greet them and eventually falling to sleep in the warm sun. Rest in peace Hank. You will be missed by many.
    .

  223. As a high school classmate, I remember Mike always living life to the to the fullest. Wishing Mike’s family God’s peace and comfort during this difficult time.

  224. I remember the Manz Elementary school crowd. Some of the first ones to welcome me from Mississippi to wisconsin. Mike always had a way of making everyone feel comfortable. Remembering Mike, John, Julie and family in my prayers and thoughts. May your memories bring you comfort.

  225. Hank has been a great friend of mine for over forty years, we had many a good time. We will all surely miss him! I’m sure he’s playing cribbage with Benny. Miss you Hank Rest In Peace

  226. Sandy, I am so glad that you and your family crossed paths with me and mine, not once, but twice. Having you as neighbors in Illinois and again in Wisconsin was a wonderful stroke of …God’s plan.

    I have so many vivid memories of Mike. I will always cherish the time he and I spent together, and the time we spent together as families. In my mind’s eye, I see Mike driving his boat down the St. Croix, smiling and loving his amazing life…Of course I am sitting nearby with a red solo cup in hand ;).

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love,

    Bob

  227. Mike, if it wasn’t for you, I would not know how to drive a stick shift. Without your help several times, Paul and I wouldn’t have electricity on our garage. You had the biggest heart and I will miss you. So until we meet again, May God carry you home. Heaven has gained another angel.

  228. Judy,
    We were so sad to hear of John’s passing. We have so many fond memories of our lives at Dana Hall when we were both there. There are no real words to comfort you at this time, but the many warm and wonderful memories of your life together are a blessing now. Please accept the sincere thoughts and prayers we are sending your way today.
    Most sincerely,
    Dottie & Bill

  229. Ed, so sorry to hear of Rosemary’s death. I have such fond memories of growing up with her, going to the farm etc. Many prayers for you and your family. May she rest in the peace of God. Nancy

  230. Denny was my co-worker for the city of Hudson and my neighbor. Denny loved mowing his lawn and keeping the walk and driveway clean of snow. I loved when He came over and did my driveway too. He never spoke a harsh word and he loved his family. I am shocked that he has been taken from his family here but he is united now with Brekken. Denny will be missed.

  231. Ed so sorry to hear the news. For those of us who believe she rests in a special place. Thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.
    Mick

  232. Hank you were an awesome individual.I worked beside you for couple of great years.. You were a walking book of knowledge and taught me many valuable life assets. We became friends on and off the job. You will be missed by everyone that new you…Take that one last ride my friend you always be my heart and everyone else’s. P.S watch for falling sticks…

  233. Hank was a wonderful man and a good friend. He will be missed by us all. Have a great reunion up there with Bill, I know the two of you are dancing in the sky.
    With great memories
    Judy

  234. My thought and prayers to Teresa and entire family. I prayed everyday that God, my angels and Motger Mary to give me strength to endure another day.? God and your angels are right beside of you. You just have to ask

  235. I’m a classmate of Denny’s. He was such a part of my life. Denny was best man in my wedding. He was at every event or fun time at ISU. He and I were both members of First Presbyterian Church in Villisca, IA. Denny was kind, gentle, and so special to our entire class. My ex-husband and I attended Denny and Jeanne’s wedding in Rice Lake. I’m sad that I can’t get to the funeral. Denny made a difference to so many people. No greater things could be said of someone. My heart is heavy. My condolences to Jeanne and the family. Denny was loved by many. May God be with the entire family. It is my prayer that you will feel the collective hug of the Hudson community and those that are extended from Southwest Iowa. Love and blessings to all of you.
    Pat Knoke Shipley

  236. Judy and family, so sorry for your loss. I do not ever remember Jim without a smile on his face. He will be missed by many.

    LaVerne Larson

  237. Denny was a good man the kind of person every town needs. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He was always there to give advice and help Hudson be a wonderful place to live. He was kind to all he had contact with as the City Planner and as a citizen of Hudson. He will be missed by all who knew him and mostly by his wonderful family.

  238. My heart is broken for your family. Words escape me. So I will send you love and pray for comfort and peace to blanket you.

    My Dad, Ozzie sends his love too.

  239. Thank you, Bob, for all the times we reffed together, along with your always-practical and beneficial advice over the years (decades). It was always fun to talk with you — on anything from hockey, All-Star Wrestling (the old AWA days…”wrasslin'”), your times at the car races in Iowa, and even your kids and grandkids.
    It’s a sad day knowing that you are not here. Know that you are missed by many!

  240. It was a pleasure taking care of Judy at PVH, she was a wonderful lady. We will miss her and her family.

  241. One Touch

    In the mist, time see all shadows.
    In the shadows, time stands still.
    In the stillness, a tear caresses your face.
    In that tear, memories are held.
    In those memories, the life of a loved one is renewed.

    Sharing memories, keeps them close to your heart.

  242. I remember with fondness, and dearly loved, his cocky and fun attitude whenever he volunteered at Hudson Hospital. It was always an adventure with him there, and he will be missed by many of us here at HH, even though it’s been a while since we’ve seen him. Wishing you fond memories.

  243. Jeg vil aldrig glemme deg jeg var fire år da du reiste jeg var med morfar på kaien og tok forvell når du reiste til USA.

    Takk for alle kjære og gode minner.????❤️❤️

  244. Jake was in the same class as my son. It was a great class and a great group of kids. I worked at the high school and Jake alway had a way of bringing a smile to my face and to all that knew him. I send prayers to his entire family, who will miss him so much.

  245. So sorry to hear about Ervah. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time – Peter and Kirsti x

  246. Dear Annie, you have been a caring “mormor” for me all these years since I went to the wrong “mormor” many years ago. You where there for me when I lived in the US for a year. And you always took us inn when we visited the US over many years after that. Thank you for beeing who you where, I have so many good memories from times spendt with you.
    You mean more to me than you ever could imagine, I will fill you inn when we meet again.

    To flittige hender har langt seg til ro. Lyser fred over ditt minne. RIP moster Annie.

  247. Tracy, I am so sorry to hear about your wife. My heart goes out to you! Prayers and hugs, my friend. – Eastie

  248. Rest in peace, Anny.
    Takk for at du kom hjem til Norge slik at vi fikk bli kjent med deg og din familie. Det var alltid spennende når mormor og morfar (Johan) hadde fått besøk fra Amerika, hvem var de og hadde de med noe spennende. Dere hadde jo alltid med spennende godteri, som smakte helt anderledes enn det vi var vant til. Colasmak og kirsebærsmak – det var nytt for meg. Men også klær, sko, håndarbeid, leker, lp-plater, pynteting etc. hadde dere med dere fra Amerika. Mine første støvletter fikk jeg fra deg. Hvite, mykt skinn og knehøyde, jeg elsket dem.
    Takk for gode minner, Anny.
    Hvil i fred.

  249. Lisa and family, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers to your whole family. Teri & Dennis

  250. Annie was such an angel of the Lord. I loved her humor and her outgoing nature. She always had a smile on her face, and that is how I will remember her. My love and prayers go out to your family. I love you, Lisa.

  251. Your mother was one of the warmest and most caring people I have had the pleasure of knowing. May the love and mercy of our Lord be bestowed upon you and your family during this unfortunate time. My most sincere condolences.

  252. Dear Auntie Janet,
    We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Denis’s passing. We are so glad we could visit with him last Fall. We will always remember his good humor and love of his family. Take care and see you soon.
    Love, Gary & Chris

  253. Scott, Susie, Jeff and Family:
    John said “lots of great memories”!
    We are so sorry we were not able to make the visitation… but always know we love you all and think of you all often.
    Sincere Sympathy from The Luedtke’s
    John, Carol, Eric, Nicole and Tricia

  254. There are no words that can truly express my admiration and love for June Waalen. She mentored me and was my solid “rock” while assisting me as an educational aide at EP Rock Elementary, School District of Hudson for 25 years! June was always so kind, considerate and caring. She was like a mother to me always giving me wise guidance and advice while raising my own family. I will continue to cherish all the precious days of my life with June, both personally and professionally. Our sincere condolences to Don, Mary Ann, Jill, Karen and families. May God hold you warmly in his arms and blessings to you forever…Our love and care, Ann & Dan Siats

  255. Dear Janet, so sorry to see the passing of Dennis,you are in my prayers. Larry and I use to live next door to you in Baldwin, in the 4 plex apartments. Larry pass away 8 years ago.
    God comfort you in this time of sorrow.
    Love, Sandy

  256. My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Robin and Don. Robin was a terrific presence at our office and I always appreciated her positive energy, great attitude, and bright smile. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

  257. My dear friend Elise. You brought so much joy into my life. We laughed together, cried together, and dreamed together . I valued your opinion, learned so much from you, was in awe of your intelligence, and looked to you for guidance. You were a bright, shiny light in my life and I will be forever grateful to call you friend. Be at peace beautiful girl? I miss you!

  258. I loved you with alllll my heart beautiful girl. My life will never be the same without your amazing self. So many memories. I will always keep you in my heart

  259. I was so sorry to hear of Robin’s passing. Robin and I were school mates since kindergarten-we actually rode the bus home from our first day of kindergarten when we only lived two blocks away! Thank goodness the bus driver knew who we belonged too! She will be missed! Prayers to her parents-Sid and Janet-and her family.

  260. It is so difficult to loose a loved one. So sorry to hear of Robin and her husband’s passing. I remember her from her childhood when she would visit her Grandma and cousins in Hatley.
    She will always live in your hearts.. May your happy memories help ease you sorrows. Hugs to all!

  261. I was so blessed to get to spend last Christmas with Clyde and family came out to vegas. Which was a wonderful treat. Rest in peace. And not fighting that cancer.

  262. I was so sad to hear of Robins passing. All the years of wonderful memories growing up with Robin. Late night pizza at Sid and Jan’s with Robin and Joe, dressing up for a Halloween party with Joe and Robin and my brother Kevin, working together at the Melody Mill (sneaking a drink together, under age of course) and Cross Point Paper. Robin was ready for any adventure, and her laughter would always bring a smile to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  263. We are heartbroken for your families. What a tragic loss. Our thoughts and many prayers are with all of you. Hugs, the family of Maude & Leonard Kautza

  264. My sincere Sympathy and prayers to all of the families. My heart is breaking at the news of the loss of Robin and her husband, Don. I was a friend of Robin’s from her childhood days; I would play with her and her brothers. My name then was Cheryl Rahn, (Cherie) as I was known back then, her mother Janet was my Confirmation Sponsor. I lost touch with Robin after I married Bill Loper and moved away from Antigo, out to New Mexico, but I did keep up with her mother. Robin is an angel now, sent to watch over all of us. I will forever miss her. Rest In Peace Robin.

  265. We are grief stricken over the tragic loss of Don & Robin. We can’t imagine going to the lakehouse without hearing their laughter and seeing them dancing under the moonlight to their favorite songs. We send our love, support and prayers to the entire Kelley/Nowinski family.

  266. I have known Don almost my entire life. He was such a positive influence and wonderful friend to my dad Terry, mom Ruth, sisters, and I. He continued to support me when I started building my own family, and would have answered any call I gave him. I will remember his pearls of wisdom (that included some sarcasm) his laugh, the lake, the gallery, softball, the corvette, and his ability to make everyone around him feel like family. My favorite piece of advice that I still use today is “if someone makes a comment that your piece of cake is bigger, offer to trade them”. Don will be missed so much, but it was a blessing to have him in my life and an honor to call him my friend. Lots of love to Blake, Monica, Rachel, Dons family, and Robins family.

  267. How blessed we all were, to have this woman in our lives. The epitome of kindness and grace, she shone as a role model of how to walk this world as a wife, mother, aunt – and woman. My heart aches for the loss my cousins, and their children must be experiencing. I send you all a huge hug from Northern MN. And feel so grateful and honored to have had her in my life.

  268. Cindy, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your beautiful mom. You and your family are in my prayers.

    Blessings and love,
    Lisa (Dull) Seaman

  270. Sorry to see the loss of Irene but hope it can be a celebration of life. Irene always had a sparkle in her eye that I still remember. Best wishes to Denise and everyone else.

  271. Although we never had the privilege to meet Irene it’s been a blessing to know her daughter Donna many years. She raised a wonderful daughter and that speaks volumes of the parents who raised her and her siblings up. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers for comfort in your grief now and going forward. Deepest stmpathy and love to the family.
    The Dopp’s Steve, Pam and Lisa Jo

  272. Sincere condolences from our family to yours as you mourn the passing of your Mom. Pray that you are comforted during this difficult time.

  273. Leslie, Brian and family

    May all your happy memories lift you up in the days to come.
    Prayers and blessings

  274. Deepest condolences to the Sanderson family and friends for the loss of your loved one Irene. You will be reunited with Irene again very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under Jesus Christ Kingdom rule Daniel 2:44, that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord’s Prayer Matthew 6:9, 10, no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5 jw.org .

  275. I was shocked and deeply sadden to hear of Diane’s passing. The world has lost a good person. I remember Diane as a person with a great sense of humor and a kind heart. Though we have lost contact in the past years, I will always think fondly of her. Rest in peace Diane – you have gone home to be with our Lord and Savior.

  276. I’m saddened by this news. I had the pleasure of getting to know Warren while he, and my Father were at WinterGreen in Hudson.
    I noticed he always had a book as a constant companion wether it be in dining room or walking back to his room from wherever.
    We shared books and had several discussions about our favorite authors. He talked about his wonderful family and life in general.
    Thank you for adding his photo as it brought memories of this gentle
    Man.
    God Speed, Warren

  277. Dear Gardner family, please accept our deepest condolences and sympathy for the loss of Donny your son, and brother.

    It’s very sad to hear of a life cut so short by illness.

    Please know that your family is in our prayers at this time.

    Sincerely,
    Erin Murphy & The Murphy Family

    Julie

  280. We were blessed to have known you, your work with vacation bible school was amazing. A real one of a kind. I will always be grateful for your kindness and caring for my Grandchildren. Peace

  281. We will miss you terribly on this Earth Diane! You created such fun and joy in your Faith Formation students. My kids LOVED interacting with you as did I! You made understanding God and Faith fun for all ages. Heaven has gained an amazing Angel and a person who knew more jokes than I even knew existed. You will be missed!

  282. Oh heaven will never be the same! A true earth angel has just joined the choirs in heaven and we will miss you here, Diane! Thank you for your joy, your laughter, your spirit and your faith. Truly you were one of a kind and I am blessed to have called you friend. Our paths have not crossed much these past few years, but I will treasure all of the retreats we worked together, our day of fun at Tulum/Xel ha, and the kindness you’ve shown my family. I will miss you. Sing loud with the choirs of angels and keep them laughing. I know you will. 🙂 Peace, my friend. Rest easy.

  283. Scott, Susie, Jeff,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of Don. Enjoyed everytime that I was able to talk to him while he was working for EOP.
    Scott- I will hook up with you when I return to Hudson in November.

    Susie – Sorry that I was not around to spend some time with you while you were back.

    Roger Bevers

  284. Mary, Sue and Mike my thoughts and prayers are with you in the lost of Roberta. I remember all the great times we had together in the summers on the farm. I will have the Carmelites offer their prayers for Roberta.

    To the immediate family of Roberta my deepest sympathy. She will be missed by all.

  285. May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

  286. Jim and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Sandy she was such a sweet lady.
    I haven’t seen her for a long time I always liked visiting
    with her very interesting person and fun .
    I wanted to go to the funeral but I couldn’t arrange it. I don’t drive
    anymore.
    I miss Clyde so much I know he was having a hard time so he is in
    Gods hands now. He had Parkinson’s so we knew he wasn’t going to
    get any better. God’s prayers are with you, Donna Christensen

  287. Received the news of Dan’s passing this morning, and wished to pay respects to a terrific fellow. I had the pleasure of working with Dan for ten years and found him intelligent, gregarious, great company and, perhaps most of all, his own man. It would be all too easy for sadness to rule the day, but his infectious laugh, broad smile, and firm friendship are all that surround memories of Dan.

  288. There was always laughter when Dan was present. One of those guys that just made me smile. He will be remembered fondly.

  289. Sending prayers & wishes for comfort & peace straight from God for all of you. Hoping these days of great grief are punctuated with memories of Sandy’s smile, wit, wisdom & tangible feelings of her presence. I am so sorry for your loss. ?

  290. A sad day for so many… Your smile was beautiful and contagious. Your loving, caring personality will be missed but your sweet laughter will live on in our hearts forever.

    Jerry, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  291. Shirley, Mom, my friend,
    I am going to miss you so much! We had so many amazing years of fun together. So many laughs, puzzles, you taught me how to play cribbage, and all 3 of my kids. Although, you could always kick my butt, you’d be so proud, I am the top player in the fish house! All 3 of my kids are excellent players too! Stephanie brought over a puzzle a few months back. Her and I talked fondly of the time her and I brought you a lobster dinner and you ate, and we spent the evening putting a puzzle together and talking. I’m really going to miss those times with you. It was so hard watching your body fail you and the pain you had to endure on a daily basis. You are one tuff lady and I have much respect for you!
    You taught me so many things throughout the 37 years I’ve known you. You’ve truly been a blessing in my life. A Mother figure and ALWAYS a friend. Thank you for that!
    Dan seen how much pain you were in, and came down from heaven and carried you up the stairs to heaven. Those gates opened, God healed you!
    You are free my friend! No more pain! Watch over us beautiful angel! We will keep our wonderful memories of you close and speak of you lovingly often!
    Until we meet again,
    Carrie Kane & family

  292. To the Grant Family – I am so sorry for your loss! I was an Ultrasound student from Saint Cloud Technical College and Don was my Preceptor during my externship. I just recently moved back to MN and wanted to get in touch with him and tell him how much I appreciated everything he did for me but I was saddened when I found his Obituary. He was a great person and great teacher.

  293. Oh Jim..Kathy..Jack..n Ann
    You have my deepest sympathies..
    and Condolences. It’s just so hard to believe.
    Dementia is a cruel disease..and Sandy didn’t deserve is cruelty. Sandy’s the best..loving..caring..upbeat
    full of life..now she’s with Aunt Florence..Uncle George..Ross..her loving grandson..and of course the rest of the clan..probably playing cards!
    Know that. .you’re ALL in my thoughts and prayers..
    I love you guys..Niece..

    Charlotte

  295. To all the Bushek families, friends and close ones.
    My deepest sympathy for the loss of Debbie.

    Sending all my love, thoughts and prayers,
    Ronnie

  296. I can’t believe Mark is gone. Mark was a dear friend to my wife and me. I worked closely with Mark for over two decades. He was also one of the kindest, smartest and highly dedicated Park Rangers I ever worked with. I could always count on Mark to be persistent and creative. Whether it was an issue relating to enforcement, public safety, park and dam operations or the interpretive program, his contributions would nearly always prove to exceed the requirements of his job description.

    He enjoyed playing practical jokes and inherited his dad’s barbed wit. I am going to miss him.

  297. Kay and family,
    I will always remember how gracious your mother was to me. I know that she will be missed.

  298. Kay and family,
    So sorry to read of your mom’s passing. May your memories and God’s love bring you peace.
    Susan Hutton
    West Bend

  299. Marge will always be in our memories. Our friendship with her and Rod, Betty, Bill and fellow Ericksonites will always be back when life was good.
    She was a beautiful and caring woman! Love and Condolences to the family she left behind!!
    Jerry and Gaye Frye

  300. Shirley,
    Although our relationship was short, it was very memorable.
    I sure miss our daily conversations and the laughs we would have .. I miss coming to visit you, sipping coffee, working on puzzles. Just chit chatting.
    My heart is at peace knowing you and Dan are together , his loss broke many hearts including yours and knowing you two are together again makes it a little easier.
    Just know I miss you and love you bunches !! Till we meet again ❤

    Your friend Julie

  301. JJ, was a one of a kind lady! She loved life and was always full of sunshine! I loved talking to her, she always had a story, and gave good advice. Her life was intriguing and full of color, and I loved hearing about her adventures. JJ not only gave me her friendship, she also made me take home a cat that was hanging around her house. She and Jack were going back to Florida and recognized how sweet this cat was. I named him Jordy and has turned out to be the best cat I’ve ever had! So, thank you JJ, for everything! I will miss you tremendously! My heart is broken, you have left us way too soon! But, I just know that Heaven is a lot brighter with you being there! Until we meet again, my friend, I will miss you everyday.
    Hugs?? Julie Myster

  302. Dear Kathy, Becca and Family,
    We are so very sorry and extend our heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your beloved Doug. I believe the last time we saw Doug was several years ago at UMD’s Farmers Market, proudly displaying the apples from his orchard. May special memories help ease your pain during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May you feel God’s presence, His love and His strength.

    With Love,
    Steve and Linda Olcott

  303. Wilgren Family,

    I am so very sorry to learn of Marge’s passing. My parents had many wonderful times with both Rod and Marge. I will always remember her as such a kind, caring and thoughtful person.

    Deepest sympathies to you.
    Amy Derr

  304. Dear Wilgren family:
    We send you our condolences as you remember and celebrate the life of Marjorie. She seems to have lived a full and rich life surrounded by her family, meaningful work, social engagement, church activity, and a variety of fun activities. May she rest in peace and may your fond memories sustain you in the months and years ahead.

    Sincerely
    Bridgette and Tom Preston
    Portland, OR

  305. Kathy and Family,
    So sorry for your loss of Dug – he was a great man and a dedicated husband and father. The days ahead will be hard but I pray that God will bring you strength and may all of your many memories sustain you during this difficult time. With love, Dawn

  306. I’m so very sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. What a good man and an exampke of a life well lived! Keep those good memories close in heart. God’s blessings to you Kathy and your family.

  307. Katherine

    I will always remember our trip to the Grand Canyon. I don’t know if Steve was laughing at me (for my obvious pain) or just being friendly . He was a great person who always made me feel like he was my long-lost brother. How he lived his life and ultimately dealt with his disease will be his final gift to you, your sons, grandchildren and the rest of us who were blessed to know him. God speed Steve

  308. While my faith journey began a couple blocks away in 1978, First Baptist was the first place and Rev. Bradley the first pastor where that journey began to take shape. Good memories of a gracious and godly servant leader.

  309. We’ll miss Doug a very friendly person always eager to strike up a conversation. When Doug would yell we always knew when Charlie (his dog) was out and about the neighborhood as they both would often make their way over to sit and chat. We both enjoyed sports cars and a variety of mechanical things and we never seemed to run out of subjects to talk about.
    Rest in peace dear friend.

  310. Right now it’s September 17. I learned just now of your loss Claudia. I extend my sympathy and am praying for you and yours, and all who loved your Mom. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.

  311. Hi Faye and Family, I am so sorry to hear about Carl. I didn’t hear of Carl’s passing until tonight, Monday. I am out of town, don’t know if I’ll get back in time for tomorrow, if not I will see you later this week. I am so sorry, Love Carol,

  312. Faye and Family
    May your memories lift you up in the coming days. His smile will always be remembered.
    Deb and Zane

  313. What a lifetime of accomplishments in such s short time.
    Steve was an incredible man. I’m so sorry for your loss Kathy & family. Prayers to you all.

  314. To all of Steve’s family, my sympathy and prayers are with you. May you feel God’s comfort, strength and love during this difficult time. God Bless you~Kathy

  315. Deepest condolences to the Franklin family and friends for the loss of your loved one Shirley. Look forward to seeing God’s Psalms 83: 18 wonderful promise fulfilled for the loved ones we have lost in death a resurrection back the life very soon for the righteous and unrighteous John 5:28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  316. While Steve is singing in the heavenly choir, breathing easy and totally healed, we’re down here on earth mourning the loss of our dear friend. Can’t help it, but somehow it just doesn’t seem right.

    Between the two of them, I think Steve and Jan could master anything—and do it right! They made a great couple, and Gene and I consider ourselves richly blessed to have been a part of their lives.
    One if the things that made Steve so special to us was that ornery little smile with the twinkle in his eyes. When we spotted that, there was no doubt he was up to something!

    If you knew Steve, you loved him! That’s just the way it was!

    May God richly bless his “bride,” as he often called Jan, as well as all of his dear family!

    Gene and Jeanne Buchanan
    Broken Arrow, OK

  317. Sorry for your loss! Thoughts and prayers to Jan’s family. I am an old co-worker of Jan’s at Andersen Corporation! I have not been in contact with Jan of late, but carry many fond memories of her during our typing pool years!

  318. Deepest condolences to the Trebus family and friends for the loss of your loved one Jacob.Very soon Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  319. Dear Anne and the Persico family,
    I am very sorry to for the death of you Dad. I remember him fondly; as a child I had given him the positive nick name of ‘Big Guy’. Jack took it in stride and I think he understood that I meant Big in a metaphysical way. …I spied, through my childhood eyes, a guy who seemed to have a big heart/caring person, who seemed to try and mask it through some bravadoness. (That kept me on my toes some, guessing where exactly he was coming from.) But he seemed to really care about his family and the world around him. And he seemed to be an empowered person; whom I believed had the intentions of doing good and positive things with that power.
    I wish I had the magical/healing words that are needed when dealing with the death of a loved one. The depth and breadth of such a loss is too large a subject matter to fit on any card or confined space. ‘May he rest in peace.’ Seems like a step in the right direction, but is like a bunt in the game of baseball, that makes it two inches past home plate…just not at all enough to get a runner home or in this case the needed words of condolence, solace and peace to the bereaved.
    I offer my condolences. My heart is very heavy and sad at the death of Jack Persico a.k.a. ‘Big Guy’. I am thankful for having known Big Guy and his family members, especially Anne, who was/is closest to me in age. I am thankful for the positive energy that Big Guy brought forth and shared. I am sorry to see him go.And I extend a big metaphysical hug to you all. May you knowing this give you(s) a step toward comfort, solace and peace. I will remember Big Guy, Jack Persico.

  320. Hi Sue and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Moms are the glue that hold the family together. When they pass on it breaks that bond. Sorry to hear of your loss. I wish you all peace.

  321. To my dear sister, Dodie, and her children. You have been in my thoughts for days. I hold you in my heart as you put your husband and father to rest.
    I know he was extremely proud of each and everyone of you. And loved you very much.

    I have and will miss the fun times we had together.

    Barb

  322. Mary will always be remembered for her love and generosity. She was always so good to us and made our family feel very loved.

    Her sense of humor and kindness will not be forgotten.

    Sending much love , Julie, Danny, & Kellianne

  323. Charlie Grant was a man of great integrity and kindness. He was a fair and totally impartial man. One only God could put amongst us. Thank you for your service to St Croix county and all the people you have helped over the years. Your kindness to my father and to me left a deep positive impression that has lasted my lifetime. Charlie Grant, they don’t come any better. Love to your entire family and your family in blue.

  324. I worked with Delores at the Hospital Hospital and she was a
    wonderful person and cook. She was supper cook and would
    do dinner also when needed.
    I live at Wintergreen now and will miss her smiles when I go
    to CCH and Pine Ridge.

    My sympathy to all the family. Donna Christensen

  325. I saw lot of your mom when we were neighbors. Saw all the family too. Those were the good old days! Wish we could relive them. My deepest sympathy to all you kids and families.

  326. I was privileged to be St. Croix County Treasurer while Charlie was still on the County Board. His respect for my office was great, but no great than my respect and admiration for such a wonderful, giving man. You will be missed my many Charlie — but we all know you will continue to fly high and watch over all those you love and care about. My sympathies to the family.

  327. I always enjoyed our conversations comparing notes from our home towns in Germany. Melitta always had a smile and an interesting story to tell. I’m sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful lady.

  328. Hello Sue and family, I saw the news of your Mothers passing through Beth.I am sending you my deepest sympathy for your loss. I wish you and your family memories that keep her close to you all as you continue on in your life’s journey. Ginny

  329. Mia was one of the nicest people I knew. I met her through selling
    Tammy Jewelry its been a long time I did very well with it with Mia’s
    help. We helped each other a lot if we didn’t have the piece for the
    show we wanted we would find it.
    We would coffee together and would talk about our interest in Tammy
    Jewelry, family and other things I was so glad she was my Mentor and a
    very good friend.
    She and I got together other time’s for shopping and lunch.
    Rest in peace Mia
    Donna Brown Christensen

  330. Word’s cannot express the sadness we feel for you dealing with the death of your mother and sister. I remember that my mother had us kids go across the street and have your mother cut our hair when we were younger and also she fixed my mothers hair. Diane had always a smiling every time I seen her. Keep the good memories in your heart. She will be deeply missed. Our prayers are with you. Patti (Harwell) Lawson

  331. Cuz; you are loved and greatly missed. You were a terrible tease & always brought a smile to our faces! Sending love and prayers Dodie and all the Persicos!

  332. A legacy of St. Croix County has left us, a bit sadder but better, for all his good deeds and kind heart. Peace to the Grant and Wilcoxsin families. Please keep Facebooking Vera, you have a great talent!

  333. To the Grant family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Charles. Hope and comfort comes from God’s wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death to be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth by his son Jesus Christ it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time Acts 24:15; John 5: 28, 29; Revelation 21: 1-5.

  334. I loved to see Charlie walk through the door of the Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley because I knew something GOOD for kids was about to happen! We lost a good one in Charlie, but his legacy and commitment to children will live on…rest in peace Charlie.

  335. My Dad worked with Charlie. When me and my sister were small Charlie let us attend several of his outings at the JR Ranch where there was held a day of fun for school bus attendants, kids as well. We had so much fun.

    I remember Dad working on Charlie’s retired patrol car. I was driving it back to dads from Charlie’s and stopped at the 1st national back drive through. I bumped the drivers door into one of the divider lane posts and dented it. I was so upset. I got it back home and we did some repairs and attempted to bang out the dent, not a lot of success.

    When we returned the car to Charlie and apologized and I was so embarrassed. He just smiled and said that’s ok.

    Charlie was a good man and it was an honor to know him. He was one of the reasons I pursued a career in law enforcement as a Park ranger, for 24 years.

    Rest in peace and all my love to his family, Mark

  336. Charlie was the greatest ambassador for all things good. It was truly a pleasure to watch this man interact with anyone he encountered. He will be missed but never forgotten.

  337. Tom,
    So sorry for your loss- how lovely that you celebrated
    your 50th anniversary.
    Ginny, high school classmate and friend

  338. Dear Tom and family,
    Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel
    at this time. Pat was such a special friend to us for so many years.
    We were blessed with so many fun memories from listening
    to great music together to the love of the same
    kind of Streetrod’s. Her friendship was a gift from above. The love and memories we shared with Pat can never be taken away. I feel she is still with us only as a beautiful loving angel looking down on us.
    Our hearts and prayers go out to you, Lori,TJ and Darcy in this time of sorrow.

  339. Sorry for your loss Tom and family!! Fond memories of all those years ago playing softball !!

  340. What an Adorable, loving and kind person.
    I remember her smiling all the time.
    I feel blessed for the times I was able to spend with such a wonderful person. What an amazing family you all are.
    My heart goes out to all of you

  341. Beautiful woman, inside and out! She did an amazing job raising all 3 of her children. There is no prouder accomplishment than that!

  342. Marlene brought such joy to everyone who encountered her. She was sweet and kind and had a wonderful sense of humor. Her memory will always stay with me.

  343. Mary was a special lady. I enjoyed talking to her whenever I had a chance. She will be missed but now she’s back with Bob. Friends forever Randy Peterson

  344. Marlene was such a light in this world. She always had a smile on her face and kindness in her heart. I know she struggled so with her Alzheimer’s Disease at the end of her journey so I am happy she is at peace. And with Will. I can see them both wit the biggest smiles on their faces, holding hands, and walking in heaven.

    I hope that brings peace and joy to the hearts of her family.

  345. My sincere condolences…. I type this with tears in my eyes and a smile on my lips as I recall all the conversations – the poetry recitals, the recipe sharing, the pool wardrobe malfunctions, the songs, the laughter, her perseverance through treatments & illnesses, the prayers, the life stories, the life lessons…Wow! I have so many great Mary moments! May God gently guide you through this time. many prayers and blessings – Colleen, the pool person from the the old Baldwin pool.

  346. Marlene was so kind, generous of her time. I’m so glad I met her, worked with her. She will be dearly missed.

  347. We’re going to miss you Earl. We’ve got so many wonderful memories of holidays, reunions and countless card games. Dales family was so lucky to have had you join.

  348. We remember Mary Freese as a sweet lady with a pretty smile. Prayers for God’s love and comfort for the family!

  349. To the Grant Family, We are thinking of you and praying for Gods comfort during this difficult time. We will never forget Don as we knew him back in Pentecostal Assembly so many years ago. We still remember Don singing with Ray. The song that comes to our minds is, “we’ve read the back of the book and we win”. We were also blessed to see him visit our church during one of his trips to Phoenix.
    Gods comfort and peace be with you all.

    Fay and Alex

  350. Pastor Grant was a great man and a godly inspiration to many.
    I know he lead many hearts to Jesus and will be blessed by thanking in his kingdom. My heart is with all of you in this hard time, but don’t forget that he is rejoicing with Jesus I’m heaven, no more pain or tears. I remember him saying once “we are all just passing through here”.
    In Christ’s love!

  351. It is with a heavy heart as I read this obituary. I feel honored to have known and worked with Don on his goal of building a physical facility for the congregation. I will always remember his smile, enthusiasm and can do attitude. Don was a great friend. I’m sure Don had said his good byes
    and was ready for Gods plan.
    Lois you and your family are in my thoughts.
    God Bless,
    Gary

  352. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to your entire family. I worked with Di for over two years and really enjoyed her sense of humor and her direct approach to life. My father was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly before your Mom and she was such a support to me. She always asked me how he was doing. She had a great heart. I will miss her!

    Blessings to your family,
    Sherry Prochnow

  353. One of the most beautifully written tributes I have ever read! I have very fond memories of Donny, what I grew up calling him. He will forever be in my heart and his song, Jesus I Love You Best Of All, on my lips. Lois and Donny were one of those special couples that I looked up to.

    Donny, you and Bro. Ray Nicholls rolled out the “red carpet” at my wedding, but now you have had the “red carpet” rolled out for you in Heaven. We rejoice with you as a Bride of Christ who has been found spotless and without wrinkle.

    Lois and family, I grieve for your loss but am comforted knowing that you have a hope which is in Heaven. May the Lord bring you comfort and peace in these difficult times.

    God bless,

    Colleen Stewart Calderon

  354. To the Grant family- my thoughts and prayers are with you. I work with Johanna and Know how strong your family bonds is- may you cherish all the memories and blessings you have had with Don.

  355. I did some painting for Bob and Mary. Of coarse I had to sit down and have cup of coffee and cookies with them. Great people both of them.

  356. Bob and Mary were longtime friends of my parents Marcus and Jeanne. We and they shared many happy memories on the farmstead in Pleasant Valley first entrusted to Marcus and Jeanne, and then to Bob and Mary.
    Dad always said, “There are no friends like the old friends.” Thoughts and prayers to the family. Sincerely, Lee

  357. We so sorry to hear this news, Doris was a kind and gentle soul. Our sympathy to all the family.

  358. Our thoughts and prayers to the Edholm family. Doris was always so positive and upbeat. She made going to work a pleasure. She was and is an angel. May god bless you all and provide you with comfort and peace.
    RIP Doris.

  359. I remember having her for a recess monitor at school. She was always so happy to be around the kids. Whenever I would see her at her house, she would always say hi and ask how I was doing. There was never a dull moment with Doris. She has changed many lives in a positive way. Rest in peace. – Nathan L

  360. Doris was always one of my favorite women in Hudson. My pleasure was working with her for years at GS Electric and seeing her all around town. I will miss her forever young life. My love to you all

  361. Jean and Ron,
    What heartbreaking news. I did not know Julie, but know how proud of her you were and understand the love of parents. Our sincere sympathy to you and your family.
    With love, Karen

  362. Mr. Bader gave me a life lesson I’ve never forgotten and used his example of giving a kid a another chance. He Instead of a speeding ticket he asked me to get a haircut. He said he would check with the school principal. I got the haircut and after some time the principal told me he had received a call from Deputy Bader regarding said haircut. This was in 1966, I always smile when I think about that time he gave a kid a break. Thank you for the fine example of kindness. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one over the years. RIP.

  363. In recent yrs our family has lost track of each other. The Lorenz family sends our deepest sympathy to you girls and Joe. We like to remember the good memories that we had together when Tiny and my mom (Lorraine) were alive. I always enjoyed her infectious laugh and stories. She was always one of my favorite cousins. Bless you all. Judy Lorenz Kahler

  364. So very sorry to hear the news about your daughter’s passing, Jean & Ron.
    I cannot imagine your pain to lose such a lovely daughter at the prime of her life! So tragic to leave two small children and a husband behind. My sympathy to you and your entire family as you mourn this untimely death. Hold her close in your memories always! Jarell Kuney

  365. So Sorry to see this about your Dear Sweet Beautiful Mom.. I thought your Mom and Dad were the GREATEST. My Prayers are with you and your Family. God Bless. Steve & Rita Adams.

  366. We offer our sympathy and condolences to Sandy’s family. I knew when I was in the 3M Medical Department from 1977 to 2005. May she rest in eternal peace.

  367. Dear Ron and Jean:
    My heart felt sorrow when I read the news of your daughter, Julie’s, passing. Even tho I didn’t know Julie, I know you.

  369. Was privileged to meet Sandy on our first day of nursing school, Sept 2,1969. Instantly drawn to her sweet smile and fun personality.I was a day hop, lived at home but Sandy was always welcome at Mother Condon’s house, my mother loved her too, that said alot, she was very selective! She kept me sane during our OB rotation, that’s another whole story, probably kept me from quitting, here I am 45 years retired! Then there were state boards, chasing down the postal guy to get her results while he stopped for lunch.Then there was 3 wonderful years working our first jobs together and not only living together but being roommates, I had brothers at home, loved living at Bentonshire. I was a mellow gal until I met Sandy and our other partner in crime, Shelley. The bloody bucket, Red Carpet, Domino’s! Dancing fools! Going to miss our annual visits, she listened so we’ll. l’ll still be talking to her, and we’ll be dancing to “Maggie Mae” by the sexy Rod Stewart at the Red Carpet while getting a 25 cents pitcher of beer!

  370. Julie and I were friends and classmates in Hudson from middle school through high school. I always enjoyed being around her because of the joy she brought to her daily life. She was so welcoming, funny, smart, and carried many beautiful talents. I have not seen her since one of our return trips home from college but I too enjoyed following her on Facebook through her move to and life in Italy. I send my deepest condolences to Deneb, her wonderful parents-Ron and Jean, John, and her extended family and friends. The HHS Class of 1993 lost one of its best!

    Sincerely, Nancy (Peterson) Steffen

  371. Ione was one of the sweetest people I knew. She always had a
    laugh or smile on her face. She was a good friend of my mother’s
    Lilah Brown. It was fun when I saw her we always had a lot to
    talk about.
    Rest in peace Ione.
    Donna Christensen

  372. I was lucky enough to teach at ASM with Julie. I loved her beautiful smile and her welcoming heart. She lit up every room she entered and it was obvious that she loved her students. She will be greatly missed.

  373. I had only one opportunity to visit with Lois before she died. She was a little restless when I arrived, but started settling down nicely as I talked to her. She said she liked Irish music so I sang ‘When Irish Eyes Are Smiling and Amazing Grace. She indicated she liked county also. We prayed together The Lord’s Prayer, which she recited about half of it. She was very willing to receive a blessing from me. By the time I was ready to leave, she had calmed down a lot and indicated she wanted to rest.

    My prayers and sympathies out to all family and loved ones.
    Gregg J Miller
    Adoray Spiritual Chaplain

  374. I was fortunate to reconnect with the Troyers many years ago through Facebook. Our families were very close when the kids were young.

    One of my greatest joys was watching Julie in Italy. Seeing all the wedding pictures, being able to watch as she and Deneb had their children. It was so very evident how in love they were and how much fun they had together. That was the beauty of Facebook, you get to see the joy and support during the sorrow.

    My heart breaks for Deneb, their children and all the family who are grieving. She was a shining light wherever she landed. All the photos that were posted, she always had that smile. Hang onto all those memories and that smile. We love you.

  375. Julie was my flat mate our first year in Italy. We were both so excited to be in Italy and knew how lucky we were to be in a great school. Julie and I lived on Via Mose, in the little village of Opera. We, along with our upstairs neighbors April and Juliet became fast friends. Julie and I were the lucky ones who had a TV and Saturdays consisted of going to the Opera outdoor market to pick up delicious little chickens cooked on the rotisserie and salad items, going back to the apartment and feasting on our purchases with wonderful red wine. We’d have Italian MYV on and dance around to music in the language we grew to love and danced on mini trampolines. We spent nights exploring the Navigli, dressing in our best dresses and making friendships that would hold strong for years after some of us left ASM. We traveled together, danced together fell in love with Italians and Italy. It was truly a golden time. Through it all Julie was someone I learned how to teach better, smile bigger, and enjoy life more. When she asked me to write a poem for her wedding I was so touched and honored. Julie had a way of making each person in her life feel special, unique and loved. I will miss her smile, her laugh, and the pearls of wisdom she shared with me… like, “always assume positive intentions” and “always be the bigger person”. I’ve held her words close to my heart and will continue to do so. We are so fragile as have so much to learn. When I think of Julie I will remember to live well and love well in her honor. Ti voglio tanto bene, cara Julie.

  376. My friend Sheena,
    You were a bright light in my day while at CCH. You took such good care of mom (Margaret). I know you are looking down from heaven. It was truly my pleasure to have known you.

  377. Barbara, I am so glad I got to know you better I enjoyed talking
    to you and getting to know you. You always had a smile and
    liked to visit with people. When I first came to Wintergreen
    you were one of the first people I met .
    I’m sure your family will miss you it will leave a space in their
    lives I know you’ll be missed at Wintergreen.
    A Friend Donna

  378. Will miss you Ralph. Miss your wit when you came into the store. You were Dad,s honorary pall bearer and now you two can talk again. Bless you. Prayers for the family.

  379. A blessing she was to many. The Merry Hearts ministry enjoyed having her sing with us at Park View several times. The cookies were such a treat too. My husband Steve is a second cousin to Ruthie. His grandmother Annie VanSomeren Brummels was Joe’s sister and Ruthie’s aunt.
    God bless her precious memory until we meet again at our
    heavenly home.
    With sympathy to all of the family,
    Joan and Steven Boldt

  380. Georgia and family of Pat King,

    We grew up in the same neighborhood many years ago. I haven’t had much contact with Pat in many years but she was a fun loving person and she will be missed by many. My sympathy to all of you.

    Bev Benedict

  381. Ruthie was one of the best! Gave with her heart and her hands with baking cookies! We were blessed to have her at Parkview when Grandma was there and she was like a sister to her. We were blessed to have her a part of our personal family and family at Zion — Rest in peace Ruthie!

  382. Our sincere wishes for peace and acceptance. The loss of a child is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

You will be missed, but always remembered as a monumental part of the Houlton and surrounding community. Hugs to your family as they seek comfort in their memories of all the good times they shared with you.

  393. I attribute many qualities to my grandmother, my love of travel, my stubbornness, and my distaste for bananas to name a few. She was a strong presence in our family and will be always fondly remembered and dearly missed. xoxo

  394. Aunt Ruthie was a wonderful blessing to me when my wife Delores passed. Her cookies were such a delight for my children. Not once but many times she would keep the treats coming. Miss you Auntie

  395. Your mom felt like all our moms. She was so caring, loving, and accepting. She always treated us with her famous chocolate chip cookies at the Middle School. She made us all feel so loved and appreciated. Now it is our time to show her how much she was appreciated. She will be missed.
    Love to all of you,
    Dan and Mary Klaustermeier

  396. Beautiful, kind, hard-working, friendly, funny, loving, interesting Sheena.
    I had the honor of working for Sheena at the Valley House back in the ’90’s — Sheena’s huge heart and calm professionalism and natural affinity for hospitality made everyone feel like Family; and made work fun. I have many happy memories of Sheena and everyone at the Valley House. Thank you. Rest In Peace dear beautiful Sheena.
    Deepest Sympathy to Sheena’s whole family, especially Jerry, Billy and Jonny, and her many many friends too (especially Paul Belisle!)
    Lea Wulf

  397. Just absolutely adored this wonderful lady! Her hugs and positive, tell it like it is, no non-sense spunky attitude is her trademark! She helped me see life from a place of freedom! We loved talking about our faith in Jesus over a cup of coffee that she’d never let me pay for and how wonderful God is. I am happy to know she is at peace and I will wait patiently until I can see her again! She doted on my kids like a Gramma and just last week Madelyn made Sheena’s AWESOME pudding enhanced chocolate chip cookies and Jared I am sure found his love of coffee through Sheena’s hostess with mostest spirit. We will miss you, Sheena. Love you! Big hugs~ Jerry, Jon, Katie and Billy

  398. Sheena was always a wonderful person to work with at the Highlander with a warm heart. Even though we lived far apart all these years, whenever we would see each other it was like no time had gone past. I will miss her deeply!

  400. Rest In Peace “Sheena from Scotland” I will miss seeing your smiling face and our daily banter ?You were a wonderful example of grace ?while still being a patient advocate. Not an easy task…but you did it with a sense of ease & a smile ? Thank you for the kind & thoughtful way you treated all of the staff who cared for your loved one. We will miss you ❤️

  402. The world was a better place because of you dear Sheena. May your family find comfort in the knowledge you are loved by all who knew you

  403. My favorite word for Jack is “Swell”. No matter what he was dealt with in life, his answer to how he was, was always “swell”. Our hearts go out to you Kathy and to your sons and daughter and all the other wonderful progeny of whom you are both so proud. Wish we could be with you at the time to offer what comfort we can. Jack has gone to a “Swell” place where he is hale and hearty again and watching over you with love and tenderness. We are so proud to have known you both and been a part of your life.

  404. I can’t make your memorial service, but my heart will be there. We have been best friends forever. We flew through the teens, concerts & dances, boys, our summer job at the resort. Next it was on to our “camping” trips, x-country skiing. My first time flying, trip to Reno to visit my cousin, what a blast we had. When my baby was born, you were the first one there to welcome her & bring a gift. I will miss the birthday cards that always showed up, Rest in peace my dear friend. Love Cheryl

  405. Action Jackson, will miss you. You always kept things lively. Best of friends and loyal golf partner. God speed. Ted and Marilyn Marx

  406. Seems like only yesterday the intrepid Spring Valley motorcycle gang departed for Sturgis with Buffalo Jack Kusilek in the lead. Always fun and always the center of entertainment. Sure will miss you Jack.
    Barry

  407. Sending love and hugs to Donna’s family. God has welcomed her home. Your spirit will live on thru the wonderful memories people cherish in their hearts.

  408. When we were children and the family would go camping at Perch Lake, Barb and I would cross the lake in a row boat. Me rowing and Barb playing guitar and singing. She was the cool cousin I wanted to emulate. As adults, Barb was the rallying supporter for the entire family. If there was ever a wedding, anniversary or funeral, Barb & Greg were there together to show their support. We will always remember her smile, her sharp wit, her laughter and how she made us laugh too. Greg, her children, and her grandchildren were at the center of her communications and she shared photos and stories that made it clear they were here pride and joy in life. I will miss all of it. We are brokenhearted to lose you Barb, but your memory and your zest will be with us forever. Rest in Peace Dear Cousin.

  409. Rest in Peace, beautiful lady. You were a gift to this world. My sincerest condolences to Greg and the family during this most difficult time. May you find peace and joy in the memory of your beautiful angel.

  410. So sorry to hear of the loss of Barb. I’m sure the girls are up to some thing fun up in heaven. They both were always laughing and having a good time. Now they can have that Miller lite together that Jeanne always wanted. Thinking of all of you and wish you comfort in the days to come.

  411. So sad for the loss of this wonderful woman on earth. She loved life and her smile always lit up a room and the hallways at 3M. Heaven has gained an Angel. Thoughts and prayers for her family and close friends! RIP

  412. The world has lost a beautiful soul. I will miss that sweet always smiling face. She faced her battles with grace. I know Jesus open his arms to her when she entered heavens gate. Bless her family as they grieve through this tremendous loss. Hopefully her strength will help them all through this. Much love to those she left behind.

  413. My heart truly goes out to you and your family. Working with Camille and sharing beautiful stories about her mom, she raised a beautiful and loving and strong woman and family. I was also blessed to see the love Camille and Steve had for her. I was thankful to have seen her moms beautiful amazing artwork in Camille’s home. Such a gift. She raised a beautiful family. Many prayers too all of you.

  414. Donna,
    You were a kind and friendly neighbor. Welcoming us and sharing your stories and experiences.
    Rest in peace. You will be remembered.

  415. It has been an honor knowing you Roxy and sharing grandmother duties with you! You raised a wonderful family and your light will shine through them in years to come. Rest well you are an wonderful example of a very strong woman for them. My love and prayers to Gary, Joe, Nikki, Jody, Scott, Henry, Isla, Olivia and family.
    Love, Karol & Dennis Johnson.

  416. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Chuck, Micheala and Vivian on your loss. Tina was one of a kind.

  417. Our deepest condolences in the loss of your sweet David. I know he fought the cancer with all his might to stay with you. He has achieved his place in Heaven and will wait patiently. He is probably already filling it with his carvings! How beautiful it will be. I am sorry we will not be there to support you at this time but I know you will be fine. So many people loved him and love you.

  418. I have worked with Tina for the last 16 years and she was one of the kindest of them all. She was a devoted mother and nurse, and worked hard.. I will miss her smile. She always found the good in everything and looked at the bright side to all. Rest in Peace my friend I will miss our conversations! Till we meet again. FLY HIGH!

  419. Betty and Family,
    Our very heartfelt condolences. Dick was one very special person. We are so thankful, proud, and blessed that we had the privilege of knowing him and becoming good friends. We are going to miss him so much down here in Florida. We will never forget him. Take comfort in knowing his wings will guide you through the days to come and he will be watching over all of you until you meet up on the other side. All our love to all of you. Dick & Lana

  420. Pat, Janet and family,

    Our condolences. May your memories lift you in the coming days.

  421. Dear family, my name is Anna, I worked with Tina years ago and also loved working with her. Very pleasant, quiet spoken. When my father was a CCH, she took very good care of him, and my dad appreciated her very much. My heart goes out to her daughter and family.
    Anna Schweitzer.

  422. My heart is heavy upon hearing of Zac’s departure from this world. We will miss him. I remember him fondly as he and his siblings visited me in Colorado. Zac was always so helpful. He is a good soul. I know he will look fondly upon us all and wish us all the greatest of lives. It was a pleasure to know you Zac. Wishing you safe and happy journeys. 🙂

  423. My sympathies for the family, she left behind. May God help you through the healing process. She was a great lady, I used to stay overnight, at Connie’s House, back in Jr. High, even before then! Barb always made feel welcomed and Jack would make us laugh. My mom and dad will make sure, she is welcome, where she now. Thoughts and prayers, to you all! ❤️?

  424. Dear Mulhollam Family,

    I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Diane. She was such a bright, beautiful, loving soul. I was lucky enough to get to know her as my aunt Anne sat right across from her office. Every time I came over to visit Anne I got to see and chat with Diane. Oh the stories and how we would laugh! I have great memories of her and will cherish them always.

    Sending prayers your way.

  425. Mulhollam family, so very sorry for your loss. A beautiful soul called home too soon. The only thing I can imagine is that God must have great plans for Diane in Heaven, and needed her there more. I can see her continuing her compassion and caregiving roles to those who need it in Heaven, especially the children. Loving, Mothering, Grandmothering, Mentoring, Befriending all those in need, like she did here with us. A great lady she was. My supervisor for years, but first and foremost, my friend. I will miss her dearly.
    Sincerely,
    Anne

  426. Dear Laurie and the Mulhollam Family
    I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of Diane. I will always remember seeing her bright, smiling face in the halls of Securian for the majority of our careers here. It sounds like she leaves a wonderful legacy with your family. I hope all of your best memories bring you comfort today and in the days ahead
    Kirsten

  427. Mulhollam family, My deepest sympathy to you in the passing of Diane.
    I worked in group claims/underwriting many years ago and Diane was always so kind to me. Especially when my mother passed away! I will never forget her caring heart! May you find comfort and peace in this difficult time!

    Sincerely,
    Kerry Brintz (Securian Financial)

  428. Marian and Ken and family my heart is broke for all
    of you. Your family has been through so much. I thank God for your faith and the strength you glean from it. I don’t know if I would survive all you have and I pray for peace for your family in Jesus name Amen

  429. My thoughts are with Jeremy’s family and friends. I’m so very sorry for your loss.

  430. Dearest Tracee and the entire family you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Your Dad and Mom were such sweet people. Your dad will be missed. Know that he will now be reunited with his beloved Vonnie. Hold your wonderful memories in your heart and never let go. Love to you all, especially you Tracee.

  431. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, JoAnn. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I will always remember the training you provided me when you were retiring from Land O’Lakes, and how pleasant you were. So sorry for your loss of your husband, but know he is without the challenges that Parkinson’s put him through, and he is in a better place now. With my dad having had Parkinson’s as well, I somewhat know how difficult it was at times. Cherish the memories you shared for so many years and may God’s peace bring you comfort in the days to come.

  432. Gerry was a great lover of music. Whenever we would perform at CCH he would be singing every song. I had the opportunity to share rehab with him and many meals with interesting topics. We talked about our past job histories with Andersen Windows and of course our families. Loved his smile and friendship.

  433. Cathy, Lynn, Steve and the rest of the family, I was sad to hear of Uncle Al’s passing. I pray you are all doing as well as possible and looking forward to when we will all be united again.
    I only heard of this about 20 minutes ago so please forgive me for not writing sooner. Love and Blessings to all of you.

  434. There are no words to express the sadness you must have at this time.
    We are praying for everyone during this time of loss.
    May Jeremy rest in peace!

  435. I served with Colin for almost nine years in the USAR, including a 9 month deployment that had us together in an office barely big enough for both of our desks. He had a big heart and cared deeply about the welfare of others. This is a man who once flew a flag in Kuwait in order to send it to a child’s classroom in the States, This is a man who took a stuffed camel on adventures and sent back pictures to those same students, much like the travel gnome, and paid a pet sitter to pamper his beloved kitty while he was deployed.

    Under the mild exterior, was a man with a sharp sense of dark humor and something just shocking enough to make someone laugh.

    I will remember these things, my friend.
    You will be missed.

    We should have been having lunch; not your burial.

  436. I am saddened by the recent loss of Sergeant Colin Drake. I had the privilege of serving alongside him in the United States Army Reserve since 2013. He welcomed me into the unit-as my platoon sergeant- with a warm smile. He was passionate about his career in the army and was a model behavioral health specialist. Showing junior enlisted how to work with individuals suffering from mental illness and substance abuse issues. There is a hole in the heart of our unit- he will be missed dearly.

  437. I am so sorry for your loss. I work at WITC and Colin always had a smile and a hello every time we passed. Even though we didn’t formally meet, I will miss seeing him in the hallways, coming from the study room. Truly a dedicated student. My condolences.

  438. My deepest condolences to the Drake family and friends for the loss of your loved one Colin. In God’s word the Bible is a wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death to be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth by his son Jesus Christ it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29; Revelation 21: 1-5.

  439. Sunday June 10, 2018 was Eddie’s birthday. He would of been 39 years old. I miss Eddie’s phone calls “Good Morning, Mama. What are you doing today? Are you drinking coffee?” I would say, “yes” and he would reply, “Me too, so I’m drinking coffee with you.” ❤️ I love you, Eddie Don and miss you …. my sweet, kind, funny son. You often said that I was your best friend; you were also one of my best friends as well. I miss your hugs, jokes and you. I’ve changed a lot in some ways and don’t know if I will ever be the same again. No one can take your place and your place
    Is saved just for you. Until we meet again! Love always, Mom

  440. Family,
    Uncle Dip was loved and will be missed. We continue to pray for all of you.
    Byron and Cathy

  441. Our thoughts and prayers are with Stanley’s family at this time. He was always cheerful and loved his bowling. His infectious enthusiasm for that sport will be greatly missed.

  442. I was heart broken to hear that is was her… She was a wonderful person with a big ❤ and could light up a room with her smile. She’s going to be deeply missed. I am also going to be sending lots of prayers to the family as they try to make since of what had happened to this amazing women as they stand by her husbands side as he fights to make a full recovery.

  443. I was really saddened to hear that the world lost such an incredible woman. The first time I met Brenda it was at a National Guard picnic, and with my 2 little kids in tow she took me under her wing. Then we discovered that we both lived in Glenwood City- even though our spouses at the time were in the MN National Guard. That was the beginning of a long friendship; walking together, attending women’s bible studies, bonfires, and so many conversations. Our lives grew apart, but Brenda was the kind of friend that I could’ve called anytime and we would have picked up where we left off. Now I can’t, and I regret that. She was my “go-to” girlfriend for many years. I send my love to her kids. I can’t imagine your loss, but know I have you in my thoughts and prayers.

  444. Norma and Family
    I am going to truly miss you. I enjoyed always seeing you on your cleaning days. We would water all your flowers and then enjoy looking through you “View Finder” I love you Norma. Rest in Paradise Honey.
    Till we meet again!!
    Jordan Polo
    Red Cedar Canyon Housekeeper.

  445. Steve, Catherine and family,
    Our condolences.
    May memories lift you up in the days to come.
    Deb and Zane Bollom

  446. Mr. Jewett, David, Paul, and family-
    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your wife and mother, Joann. I never met her, but I was a choir student of her husband during my high school years–back in the 70’s. Mr. Jewett was one of my favorite teachers, and feeling that way about him, believe that the love of his life was equally as wonderful a human being. My thoughts and prayers are with you in the days and weeks ahead. May you all feel God’s comfort and peace.

    With warmest sympathy,
    LuAnn (Hauser) Crist

  447. Skip, David, Paul and Family… My heart felt sympathies. Mrs. Jewett was my favorite 3rd Grade teacher. That’s because she WAS my teacher. I had the privilege of teaching with her at East and had many fond memories. The best was sitting with her in the library and going over my report card with her. It was the best Parent/Teacher Conference ever. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  448. Mr. Jewett,
    We would like to express our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
    As I told Phil, you were a great choir director while I was at Jefferson High School, in your choir class.
    May you find comfort in the many happy memories I’m sure you and Joann shared.

    Sincerely,
    Phil and Rosemary Mertens

  449. We are so saddened by Marks passing. He was such a great son and father and will be missed by all. Words can’t express the heart ache we all feel.Sincerely, Dianne and Michael Elavsky

  451. So sorry for the loss of Charles, I live in Mississippi so impossible to be there with the family, but I am thinking of y’all. Prayers for all the families.
    Love y’all, Linda

  452. I met Bert in high school and always admired her; her warm spirit, her passion for the outdoors, and that smile that lit up a room. That is the smile that I will always remember. I also admired her sportsmanship and her ability to exceed in whatever she set out to do. While it seemed she had a competitive spirit, I believe she was only competing against herself, she had the desire to prove to herself she was as good as she was. She didn’t gloat when she won, but boy did that smile of hers shine like a diamond. I am blessed to have known Bert and thank God for her spirit. My prayers, love and sympathies to all of her family.

  453. Please accept my sincere sympathy. I was your hairdresser when you lived in New Ulm. Take care.

  454. I’m shocked and so very sad to read this. I worked with and knew Lana for years at 3M when I worked on trade shows for my division years ago. She was a sweet, sweet woman who knew how to get things done. My deepest sympathy to her son and family.

  455. Robert Was a great person. I talked to her often Via internet and a occasional visit. She loved her family and being outdoors. She will be missed by all . I will never forget her. till we meet again . jim.

  456. Jay was a wonderful man and friend he will be missed your family is in our thoughts and prayers may God bless

  457. I am so sorry for your loss. Fran is one of the people who make Hudson a beautiful place to be. She had a heart like an angel and just made you feel good when you saw her.

  458. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tyler’s wife Ali, his sons, his family and friends. I went to high school with Tyler and he was always such a kind person. It is so heartbreaking to hear that such a wonderful man’s life ended at such a young age. Praying for strength and comfort for his family and friends. Rest In Peace Tyler!

    Sincerely,
    Kristen (Przybylski) Svendsen

  459. Ali –

    My heart breaks for you and your family over the news of your incredible loss. There are absolutely no words that can be said to truly bring comfort and for that, I am sorry. My heart and thoughts are with you during this time. May you be surrounded by the love of family and friends as you move throughout these next days. May love and comfort be with you.

    Amy

  460. Can’t even express how sad this makes us. I’m not sure if I ever met him, Gene probably had. Just reading about him, I can see how much he was loved and gave love. All I can think is God had a greater need of his quulaloties and qualifications then those of his family on earth…as unfair as that is. I’m glad his wife and kids have the strength of loving families to help them and LOTS of great male role models to help fill his absence in the kids lives.

  461. I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know him and his family, but he sounds like a wonderful, caring, giving person.

    Hold on to the good and beautiful memories and remember… Love Never Ends!

  462. Ali,
    There are no words I can say to change the reality of your pain but may you be surrounded by the love of God and your family.
    I pray that you feel God’s presence in this dark hour.
    Linda Goeppinger

  463. Sorry, For your loss Tracy and Tony! Prayers! The hearts of the Homeless who Tyler helped will pray for him!

  464. I am so very very sorry for your loss. It sounds like Tyler was a wonderful son, husband, and father. Sending many prayers to you all.

  465. I wish there was something I could say to make the loss of Tyler’s life a little less painful. I can not begin to imagine your loss. What I have seen shows howdeeply thought of he was. That is an incredible gift to you, as his parents Tracy and Tony. You did good raising him, and he explored those teachings to encompass them into his life and make this wonderful person, man, husband, and father. God bless all of you during this time. I will be praying for all of you.

  466. Tyler was always such a great guy in high school!!! I am extremely sad and heartbroken for such a young good soul to leave this earth too early. My heart goes out to all of his family and his children! Rest in peace Tyler!

  467. There are no words to take away the pain from all who are suffering the loss of this amazing young man!~ My deepest sympathy to Ali, Liji, Amos and his parents Tracy and Tony. My heart is breaking for all of you – Prayers, love and hugs to you all!

  468. Ali, Elijah, and Amos,
    I wish there were better words to express how incredibly sorry I am for your loss. It’s clear that the whole Hudson community knew how great of a man Tyler was, and he will be missed by many.
    I look back at that short, but recent time you guys lived by my mom’s, and it always made me smile when I drove by and saw Tyler’s truck out front, and was even better when I was walking the block with one of my kids, and got a chance to catch up with Tyler, and let our kids play for a while. He truly beamed with love for those boys! You could see it in the twinkle of his eyes, and hear the joy in his voice.
    Please don’t hesitate to ask for whatever you need from me or anyone, any who knew Tyler, or even heard of him would be more than happy to make this time easier. I wish we could wake you up from this nightmare, as death truly sucks….which is an incrediable understatement!

  469. This is a tribute to Dan the man. I remember when I was a little kid I used to hide behind his lazyboy chair and kick it repeatedly. He never minded much. One of the best memories from my childhood was when he and auntie linda took me to the MN state fair and he played billiards to win me a giant stuffed Clifford the red dog. I didn’t know he was so good at shooting pool. On the car ride home I still remember holding it out the window and shaking it to distract other drivers and he and Linda were laughing histeterichally as other drivers honked at us. You will be missed. Rest In Peace uncle Dan.

  470. Shelby was a classmate of mine. I remember her, fondly. She was a very independent, strong woman and and so smart. She was good friends with our other classmate and friend, Kathy Krizan Ofstie, and they loved playing pool together. I’ll never forget Shelby, her warm personality and those dimples! Rest in peace old friend.

  471. To my sister Linda and to Dan’s parents and siblings: Dan’s passing is heart-felt. Hang in there. Dan obviously worked hard all of his life and lived life to the fullest! I will always continue to admire him for that. What a nice picture of Dan the Man and what a nice obituary!
    -Rick Bubnash, Great Falls, Montana

  472. Uncle Dan, I still can’t believe you’re no longer with us. Ever since you came into our lives as kids there has never been a dull moment. I am truly going to miss your crazy stories at holiday dinners, our trips to the state fair, and your never-ending joy for life. Thank you for patiently teaching me to knee-board, how to properly roast a hot dog on a campfire, and to never be afraid to take risks in life. We all miss you, and I hope you are still riding around on your Harley up there. ❤️

  473. I will never forget my dearest Uncle Ol’ Blue Eyes. You have never seen such crystal blues with a smile that lights up the room. When Uncle Dan was around, he always put me at ease with his endearing laugh and calm nature. My favorite part of our family holidays was listening to Uncle Dan’s stories; he was an old-school, straight-shooter who always “tells it like it is”. His genuine, honest spirit I will forever admire. A humble, hard-working man, Dan had many hidden talents and life wisdom. He would reminiscence about his childhood days when he became a smashingly successful trumpet player. Uncle Dan even played in a band with the great Miles Davis. Anytime I hear a trumpet play, I think of my Uncle Dan and his passion for life and music. Like me, Uncle Dan longed to live on a beach. I know he is finally on his beach now looking down on us; he will forever be missed.

  474. My family was never able to visit Grandpa Jack as often as we’d liked to, but when we went, it was always a memorable time. In younger times, I remember walking through his wonderland of woods. During the summers when we visited, my little brother and I climbed giant oak trees, ran through the woods, and explored every nook and cranny of his land. There was always something to do in the woods at Grandpa Jack’s. I will forever remember Grandpa Jack as interesting and as vivacious as his woods.

    Through the years, I’ve learned many things from him. One summer, when I was around 12 or 13, my dad took the family up to see Grandpa Jack. There, he set out a trap for a pesky raccoon he had been complaining about rummaging through his property and trash. The next day, we checked the trap to find a raccoon stuck inside. He handed me a pellet rifle and instructed me to put a single round into the raccoon to put it out of its misery. Now, I had practiced with rifles on his land before, but I’d never shot at a live target. I took the heavy rifle and aimed at the raccoon. It was scared and desperately trying to free its damaged paw from the mechanism in the confinement. I fired round after round into the cage, each time hitting, but not ending its life. With each consecutive round, I became more panicked and desperate to put the animal out of its misery. I must have fired 7 rounds into the raccoon before it finally succumbed. In this one act, my grandpa taught me the importance of responsibility for my actions, the importance of being deliberation in action, and the importance of life. I will forever remember my Grandpa Jack as a teacher.

    In all of the summer trips, fish fry dinners, and family reunions, I noticed a strong connection between Grandpa and all of his kids and grandchildren, I see it in the way my father looks up to him and admires him. I see it in the way my uncles’ eyes light up when they tell a story about him for the hundredth time. I see it in the way they love and respect him. I see it in the how he always provided a warm home to my family, I see it when we catch eye contact, and he returns a wink and a smile at me.
    I will forever remember my Grandpa Jack as a good man.

    From his quiet smirk to his wide grin, I knew my grandpa loved life. In this, his teaching and mentor-ship are evident in the way my relatives respect him, the way I respect his sons, and the way my dad tries to be the best father he can, from the experiences he has taken from his father. I will remember John Jack Martin in how I teach my future children and I how I treat future people. The lessons he’s taught me about god, about family, and about life are among those forever instilled within me.

    -You’re in a better place now
    Lucas Kai Martin

  475. Jim and family,
    I remember Jean as a quiet gentle person and fun to visit with at our Wilson staff parties. I still have her recipe for lemon meringue dessert..John really loved that.!
    You will have many good memories to keep in your heart!
    You are in our prayers,
    Dari and John Nielsen

  476. Jim and family, I’m sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. I hope you and the rest of your family are doing well.
    Gerry Meyers

  477. My sympathy to her family.
    I am just a silly student in her English class at Marshall Junior High.
    Miss Goldsmith was a very classy lady with great class control, but I made her laugh. This was all in 1962. I remember how happy she was for her upcoming marriage and how we all chipped in to by her a vase( I think) from Ernie Rost store! She seemed so pleased. Glad she married one of Janesvilles finest teachers, Jim Sharer.

    John Bontly

  478. Fran will always hold a special place in my heart. She always had a kind word for me and her smile was Infectious. I consider myself blessed to have know her.
    Bill and I would like to send our Condolences to the entire Family.

  479. I am so sorry for your loss Sarah. Even though I never personally met John, I felt like I knew him just from all the conversations and stories you would share with me during our hair appointments together. If there is anything you need …please do not hesitate to ask!

  480. We are saddened at the family’s loss of such a joy-filled sister, mother, grandmother, our cousin. Her heart belonged to the Lord. May her faith and the beautiful and fun memories she gave to all who knew her give joy and peace.

  481. My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. May the “…Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort…” be with you during this sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) (Psalm 83:18)

  482. Nancy, Margaret Ann and I loved popcorn in bed. We were gigglers especially at midnight. Margaret Ann loved the Lord and gave all of the women in her church a CD of her aunt, my mother, playing the piano. She loved her family

  483. Dearest Mary Ann and family, my heart is breaking for you all at this sad time. This is the first I’ve heard of Teri even being ill. Always remember the good times and know that she is in a better place. Sending hugs and prayers to you all! Fly High Teri!! It was my pleasure being your babysitter so many years ago!!

  484. Megan, Charlie and Lori, and Kevin and family, your mother was a wonderful woman! She gave of herself freely. I am sure that your dad was standing at Heavens Gates with wide open arms. I know that she will be dearly missed by you. Praying for peace and comfort.

  485. I will remember Margaret for her ready smile and hug. I appreciate the joy she shared, and her love of her family.

  486. Almost every time I met John he was either helping me or helping someone else, which in itself says a lot about who John was.

    As I struggle for words, I came across this quote from Martin Luther King Jr. that reminded me of John.

    “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle… (or) Einstein’s Theory of Relativity … (or) the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

    John was a rare individual. Not only was he an intelligent man, but he was a kindhearted, loving soul with a willingness to help others. John was a great man. He served his community well and will be deeply missed by his friends and family.

    With love and prayers,
    Madelyn

  490. Jim, you and your family have our sincere sympathy. Good-byes are so hard. I know Jean is fully restored, wrapped in the arms of our Lord. Blessings to all of you at this difficult time.

  491. Jennifer, Jill and Derrick,
    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom and Grandma’s passing. She was quite the character ! I remember one time I couldn’t help but smile while listening to you girls trying to convince her of something ( the subject escapes me now ) and she would have none of it ! She knew her mind and I always admired that.
    My thoughts, fun memories, and prayers are with you all.
    God Bless, Fran

  492. Thank-you so much for sending this beautiful tribute, Jennifer. I have been thinking of you all ever since I got the news. Your mom was such a sweet, gentle soul… I always enjoyed visiting with her. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  493. I am so grateful for all of the time my family and I got to spend with Mary over the years. She always lit up the place when she was around… always smiling. In our conversations she was always so kind and caring. We will miss her deeply. All our love to Johnny and the rest of her wonderful legacy.

  494. Deborah, John & Sarah,

    I’m heartbroken over the death of your Mom. Her smile & lilting voice will always be in my heart. Peace & love to all of you.

  495. Mrs. Johnson was my favorite teacher in junior high in the late 1960’s. She encouraged all my creative writing, even when it didn’t meet the “letter of the law,” as far as the assignment went. She was one of the most positive influences in my educational development, and in my path to a career in environmental education.

    My sympathies to the family.

  496. John and family – so sorry to hear of your loss. Wish you all peace and comfort in the days ahead as you reflect on her memory and the great gift she was in your lives.

    With Sincerest Thoughts and Prayers,

  497. John and family I am sorry your Mom has passed, but also thankful she is now at peace in her eternal life. I wish you peace and you have my prayers as you pass through this difficult time. John, lean on your music and your friends.

  498. I am very sad to see this. Mike was not only skilled at his job, but also a truly nice person. I’ll always remember his installing our hardwood kitchen floor (beautifully!); and conversations we had. Our condolences to his family. Gone too soon….

    Linda & Gene Schwenke

  499. Al, Megan and I were so very sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  500. Dear Loraine and Family,
    We send our thoughts and prayers and prayers to you and your family during this difficult time. We always enjoyed visiting you in your home in Hudson and we remember the time we met in Arizona. You and Bob were great hosts and fun to be with..

    May he rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon him.
    Mary Ellen DeNucci and Irene (Danielson) DeNucci

  501. What a wonderful man who lived an incredible life. He is leaving a legacy that will be remembered for many years
    Bob found the perfect wife and fathered three wonderful kids. He had a great career contributing a great deal to the community and to his many many friends. There are few people I have known who were so good and nice that I couldn’t imagine anyone not liking them.[ my Sister in law marilyn was the only other one that I can think of.

    Well Bob is gone, but we have memories, memories are wonderful things you can visit them any time of the day or night, and they are always of good things. As i sit in front of my computer the memories are filling my mind, I remember visiting the root beer stand , that is where I first met Bob, I remember the Star observer at the end of the bridge, the stories of his career with the refinery and the Erickson clan, the beautiful home he and Lorraine built, not a blade of grass out of place, the projects he built that I wished I could do.
    The DEER Camp, he fed us so well and always was ready to share his Hudson Bay, He was admired as an INSTITUTION by that august group.
    When you needed the community ladder you just called Bob, Jack Martin always claimed that he owned half of the ladder and bob only stored it for him.

    I remember the Thursday golf group, I can see them sitting around the table in the bar setting the afternoon wagers.
    My most recent memory was stopping to see he and Lorraine in their new apartment, Nancy and IO were treated to wine and some very wonderful conversation. Memories are great and I look forward to reliving more of them with this about this wonderful friend. hey

  502. Lowe Family –
    So sorry to hear to Tom’s passing. You are in our thoughts.
    Scott Schorn and family

  503. Dear Bev, and family,
    It was a shock to read about Tom’s death! I am so sorry and want to extend my sympathy to you and the girls. I have many fond memories of playing in RFHS band with Tom…and all the laughs and giggles.
    Memories go way back to the College Campus School, where Tom was an outstanding student and had a great singing voice; H.M. S. Pinafore comes to mind.
    I was surprised to see that Tom and I had a birthday in common, 9/22, except that my year is different.
    Fondly,
    Ellen (Morrow) Mattson (Class of 1947)

  504. Carol, we are so sorry to hear if Paul’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Ted and Sue Klimek

  505. Bev, Ellen, Carolyn and family –
    So sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. Hold close the wonderful memories you shared with him. Many of my childhood memories include your family and the barn.

    Ashley (Nelson) Ronayne

  506. Carol and Joe – This is Bev Brown (now) Nuessmeier – I have lived in Hudson since 1960 -I remember Joe blowing that trombone in band when I was in the SV band….sorry to hear about your mom Carol. You lived over by the Reed School didn’t you? We knew Margaret Hendrickson, your aunt, (our neighbor) and went to East Hill School with her children, quite well. My folks both died so young (both 58) and you were so lucky to have your mom so long. God Bless……Bev

  507. A life well lived!! We are glad to have known a
    fine man, remembered as the best manager
    at our Ashland Petroleum sales office.

    God Bless!
    Dianna Burgette Ross

  508. Bob & Lorraine have been among a small handful of my parents’ dearest and most-tenured friends. My memories of Bob, from my childhood right through to our last interaction this past January, are of a consistently positive, generous, kind, good-humored, and thoughtful gentleman. Our world is smaller for this loss. Blessings and wishes for warm memories to Lorraine, Caroline, Nancy and John.

  509. We are sad to hear about Paul’s passing. It seemed to happen so fast and we are so sorry for your family’s loss. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely,
    Lisa, Tom, Taylor, Nick Smith

  510. Atef was like the Bible told us in Matthew 18:3( and Jesus says,”Assuredly, I say to you, unless you change and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven “)
    I have to know Atef as a cousin back when I was teenager , he like to talk , kept his smile and nice sense of humor! Unfortunately, after immigration distances kept us away from seeing each other but I have been always checking on his health and spoke with him few months ago and still remember the old memories during teenage time back home.
    Rest In Peace Atef and remember us when you are in heaven.

  511. I was so sad to hear of Bob’s passing he was such a wonderful man. I volunteered with him at Hudson hospital and he was always such a bright light with his beautiful smile and great sense of humor. My prayers are with Lorraine and family. Rest In Peace Bob.

    Pat Niccum

  512. We are so sorry to hear this news. We were neighbors of Jake for many years in Vadnais Heights. He was a kind, gentle soul. I will fondly remember our driveway chats. He adored his family and spoke so highly of his siblings and loved ones. We are so sorry for your loss.

  513. I remember Penny from school, we had good laughs in the lunch room. I know Bruce. And so sorry for the loss of Penny.

  514. Yacoub families, I am so sorry to hear of Atefs’ passing, he had such a gentle presence. I always enjoyed talking to him at birthday parties. May his memory be eternal.

  515. Bob and Loraine are two of the finest people Carolyn and I ever knew. I am proud to have known Bob and to call him a friend. We extend our deepest sympath to the family and wish them the best. Rest In Peace my friend.

  516. It was always a pleasure to see you at the golf course. You were one of the people that when looking out at the lot of the old course window, that I knew would brighten my day!
    Play well Mr. McGrew:)
    Tom

  517. Mark and I offer condolences and prayers to the family.
    Bob has gone home, but he lives on through his family.
    Rest in peace, God bless.

  518. Bob: You are missed terribly. But, you were a great role model for both me & Anne-Marie. We are especially happy to have known you & Lorraine. And even happier to know you got to see Grampa Lew’s work at the Red Wing pottery.
    Thank you for your service in the Navy & years of volunteering at the hospital. Always meeting people with smiles & your caring heart. May you rest in peace. You have more than earned it!

    Dave and Anne-Marie McDonald

  527. Many good memories at the farm. Will never forget you Tillie. Love you always. You showed us all much love in many ways. Tell Tom hi .

  528. Dave was much much more than a close friend. He was family. Truman and Dave were more like brothers in so many ways, in how well they worked together, helped each other, and in their companionship. They knew each other better than most, and enjoyed a unique, very special “once in a lifetime” kind of friendship.

    Dave, we love you dearly and grieve for you. You will be cherished in our hearts forever.

    Tru and Deb

  529. R.I.P. Gordy Gilbs, you will be sorely missed, you sardonic sense of humor and quick wit can never be replicated, love you bro, forever and always

    Bill and Vonnie

  532. Carol and family I am deeply saddened for you all. My heart breaks for you and Paul will be forever in my heart. What a kind, dear man. Much love to you all.
    Jenny

    You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

    Jay and Karen Schmechel

  534. All of my thoughts and prayers to Debbie’s children and family. I worked with Debbie since 2009. She was an inspiration to many. Always had a positive attitude and kept her spirits up. What I loved most about Debbie was her faith in our Lord. She taught me much and she will be greatly missed. She is in a beautiful everlasting, eternal life now with Jesus.

  535. To the Schiltgens,

    I am so sorry to hear this news. I had a nice chat with Maxine at my own mom’s funeral just a few weeks ago. I feel lucky to have known her and I have many great memories of her and with her and all of you.
    Our sympathies, truly, for your loss.

  536. My dear sister Kay, you will be forever loved and missed. You have finally gained your wings. Until we meet again. Rest well. I love you.

  537. Kim and family, I’m so sorry for your loss! I met your mom while friends/4-h’er with Kim. My thoughts and prayers are with your family!!

  538. I worked with Bill in Menomonie 3m.He was a wonderful supervisor. I had a interview for a job with him and I came in and sat down.I told him I was a very quiet person and would sit and listen.He laughed and said you know this is your job interview and not his.Love to you and your family.

  539. Sweet Akers family, you were my favorite neighbors in Sebastopol, CA. Some of my best memories are of spending time with you. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Bill always had a smile that warmed the heart. He was always calm even in the midst of chaos and angry bees. Even a sting to the nose didn’t dim his smile. My wish for you is that the hole his passing leaves in your hearts be filled with the memories of a life well lived.

    Marceen Pfaff

  540. To Ann and Laura and Steven,
    My heart is with you all.
    My memories of Bill include a perpetual smile, always a warm and opening presence and a talent for keeping the boys entertained! From that awesome clubhouse he built with the gliding rope swing to the obstacle courses for battles. He was always so present for his children and I know my son, Nick, benefited from growing up in his company. He gave so much to this world. I am so sorry for your loss.

  541. I wa so surprised, shocked to read about Helen. She and my mother (Harriet Christianson) were close buddies. I met Helen through my mother and we quickly connected. She was so much fun, so interesting to talk to. I had lunch with Helen, Audrey, and Marlene late in Novemeber. We had fun sharing memories of my Mom and of their memories of life before Wintergreen. Each of those ladies was full of life and wonderful stories. I will miss talking to Helen and miss her emails. I will treasure the little cards she had sent me, all stitiched with those little arthritic hands. A dear sweet lady.

    My deepest sympathy, love and prayers to all of you.
    Kay

  542. Love you so much Kay. You will always be my big sister. You always had the biggest heart and the most loving.

  543. Ann, Laura and Stephen, my heart is hurting for your heartbreak. Let the tears you shed stand witness to your love for your husband and father and to the depth of your thanksgiving for the gift of his life.

    Eternal Rest Grant Unto Bill O’ Lord. And Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Him. May He Rest In Peace.

    “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” -Psalm 34:18

    Much Love and Many Prayers.

  544. I had the honor of knowing Billy through my brother in law Paul Rose.
    What an awesome, kind, personable, and good hearted person Billy was.
    Thank you Paul Rose for bringing him into our lives.
    Pete Kijinski Sr.

  545. I will miss Helens smile. I was one of the Sunday church leaders from the Methodist Church. It was always so nice seeing Harriet Christensen and her come to services. I visited with her many times.
    Harriet

  546. Our condolences to the family on Margaret’s passing. She was a wonderful lady and special friend to my mom, Mugs Zillmann, when both resided at Wintergreen. They are now together in heaven.
    R.I.P Margaret.

  547. After spending my youth in the same church with Dan and his sisters…I was shocked by this news of Dan’s passing and can’t believe I never knew he was living just down the road from me in Roberts. My heartfelt condolences to the entire Krogseng family. From all I have read, it seems as though Dan had quite an impact in his community and was blessed with a beautiful family. My prayers go out to them and the entire family.

  548. Heaven got an awesome fun lady. We enjoyed spending time with her whether it was having lunches or playing cards. Will always think of her fondly. Bless her heart and soul.

  549. Isaiah and Family,
    I am so deeply sorry for your loss and the terrible heart break you all must be feeling right now. Please except my condolences and know that my family and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Michelle

  550. Even though it has been years since I last saw/spoke with Dan, I always thought of him as an incredibly nice guy. From the obituary, I can tell he never changed. I am so very sorry for his family’s loss. I know you all are incredibly close and he will be deeply missed. You all are in my heart and prayers. My hope is together you will find the strength to get through this difficult time. Love to all, Dawn

  551. Dear Danny’s Family.
    I am at a loss for words. Danny has been a long time inspiration to me and a person I can call a true friend. As we grew older and took different paths we still found time to stay connected. We would talk about guitars plus some other things, but most importantly about how proud we were of our families. Danny will always will be a very proud family man and a great friend. I will always cherish the fun and crazy things we did together. My heart goes out to you all.

  552. My sympathies go out to the family of mike although I have never met them in person I had talked with mike about his family on the tail gate of our trucks. I only got to work with him for s few years now but a great guy and will miss him on our job sites. Jeff howe construction in siren

  553. Diane I am so sorry this is still so unbelieveable when Greg told me of Dan’s death my heart hurt for you first and foremost I hope the love and support of the beautiful family you have helps during this difficult time.

    prayers and love are being sent!
    Lora and Bryan Bierbrauer

  556. There really no words to express how sorry we are to hear about Mike’s passing. After working together so many years we think of him more as a friend than a business associate. He was dependable, fair, caring and always left you with a smile. He will be missed. May love bring you comfort and time bring you peace. Dan and Karen

  557. Dear Beth and to your daughter, Catalina and also to the Anderson and Wiberg families,
    You have my deepest heartfelt sympathy.

  567. What a beautiful lady in every way. When I think of her the word gracious comes to mind. Obituary painted a picture of what a special lady she was.

  568. Maggie and your entire family- our condolences to all of you during this difficult time, I only met your Mother a few times “off campus” when she would be out stopping in at the HSO office or when I dropped the girls off at the “Sno-Park” (notice I remember how you spell that!). What a fabulous lady, even more so after reading her amazing life story.

    God Bless!

    “Blondie”

  569. Maggie, Katie and all of the Kinney family,

    May your memories lift you up in the coming days.
    Deb and Zane

  572. Tom was Mayor when I first started working for the City of Hudson. Tom was also supportive of the Clerk’s office and had the welfare of the City at heart. It was my pleasure to have known Tom not only as Mayor but as a role model. Rest in peace Tom. It was a privilege to have known Tom during my lifetime.

  573. We know you are resting in peace, and yes, it’s too soon, for all of us left behind. May all of your family and friends find solace by grieving together and remembering you with smiles and tears on our faces, laughter in the air and love in our hearts.

    Mark and I offer our most sincere condolences to you at this difficult time. We will keep you in our prayers.
    Mark&Karen

  576. We are glad we got to know and spend time with Tom. He was a pleasure to be around and will be missed. You could always count on him for a laugh when we visited. A personal memory of mine, Tom would make our trips to the gun range a great experience with several calibers and configurations to choose from. He loved to sling some lead down range. I am sad that we will not be able to make the services. You are all in our hearts and we are sending virtual hugs.
    Love Joe, Kris, Eric, Alex, Grace and Damian.

  577. I just saw this today. There are many memories with the Boumeester clan. I’m sorry for your loss. Bob

  579. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Arthur. Please read God’s wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death to be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth by his son Jesus Christ it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time John 5:28,29; Revelation 21: 1-5.

  580. Please accept my condolences as you mourn the loss of your dear Arthur. Be assured that not only is almighty God keenly aware of your plight, he will indeed remedy all suffering on earth including death, as this video link clearly shows:

  581. Nate, my sympathies to you and your family. It sounds like your grandpa was full of life and fun. Kathy

  582. She had angels in her early life, to boost that inner strength and fierce determination to overcome the time, place, and circumstances of her birth. During summers on the Larkins farm, Grandma L taught her the essential non-school lessons that became building blocks for her strongest values. Donna and a handful of other high school girlfriends included and accepted her. And that guy who sat behind her in junior year history class: he listened to her dreams with an open heart, believed in her, respected her, loved her, and cared for her—her best angel, for 75 years. And after decades of ensuring women looked and FELT their best on important life occasions, she now expertly creates and mends angels’ wings.

  583. Todd and family our prayers are with you. May your memories lift you up on the coming days.
    Deb and Zane Bollom

  584. So sorry for the loss to the whole Anderson family. I grew up with John and Jim, played hockey, got into trouble, and had the sweetest fort in their garage rafters where we spent countless hours. John was a natural hockey player with God given talent and always wondered what he could have done with that. Know that he is in the right place, and will guide you through your journey’s going forward. Rest in Peace John!

  585. Always a gentlemen and loving father / grandfather.

    I will always remember the times we had deer hunting and “up north” as a child and young man.

    My life was enriched by his kindness and wisdom

    RIP Uncle Art…

  586. My deepest love to Micki, Candy, Todd and Corey on the loss of their great husband and father. We all knew Chick as an affable and exceedingly kind fellow who worked diligently at Zillmann’s for all of those many years, married to the most wonderful woman in Micki; but, I was able to see up close and personal beneath the veneer of the man, into his heart and soul. I believe it was the summer of 1972 when my family was without a place to live for many months. Showing the ultimate demonstration of love for friends in need, the Places offered for us to come and live with them while we were without a home. Who would do that? Now that I am a sixty one year old man with a family of my own, I’m nearly astounded when I reflect on that most generous showing of support to my family. The entire Place family treated us with great respect and consideration during our plight; and never complained about us infringing upon their space and imposing on their lives.
    God rest your soul, dear friend. I know that you are already looking down on us from your rightfully-deserved place in heaven.
    Much love to all,
    Garry Landowski
    Houston, Texas

  587. I am so very sorry for your loss, Micki and family. I pray your special memories will be a comfort to you. God Bless you all.

  588. When I moved to Hudson many years ago, one of the first people I looked forward to meeting was Bill, the stories and his reputation preceded him and he did not disappoint. He lived up to his most appropriate nick name without question. Bill was bigger than life itself always smiling and bringing cheer to those whom he came into contact with. He leaves a tremendous legacy of family, friends, and loved ones. He will live on in a happier place and be remembered by all. God Bless rest in peace. Thoughts and prayers for family members who all loved Bill so much.

  589. Jeanie and family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    May your memories lift you up in the days to come.
    Blessings
    Zane and Deb

  590. May you finally be at peace and pain free. Uncle Bill you were like non other. You will be missed by many. Prayers and sympathy to you Aunt Jeanne, Don, Larry, Jimmy and Suzie.

  591. So many fun memories of my uncle Bill growing up – whenever he was around there was so much laughter – especially when he’d take his teeth out and try to scare us kids! My heart and my love goes out to his wife, my aunt Jeanne and my cousins Donny, Larry, Jimmy and Suzie and all their children. Take comfort in knowing my dad, Tom is there with him and I’m sure they are pulling some sort of shenanigans in heaven!

  592. Aunt Ruth was a wonderful mother and wife. I remember spending time at “the farm” visiting Grandma and Grandpa during the summers. She was always up for another child to join all of hers for dinner and sleepovers! My fondest memories as a child were spent with all my cousins, Aunt Ruth and Uncle Jim.

    Bob and I were able to meet them for dinner in Arizona numerous times as adults. I will always cherish the memories of them. My sympathy to all of you, Kit, Jodi, Carrie and James. May your memories sustain you through your sadness. Love, Kim

  593. My first husband, Sonny Pankow would not let anyone but Gordy work on his vehicles….it was like Gordy “walked on water to him”. Sonny was so particular with his cars, I can’t remember all the times we drove from Hudson to Zillmans just so Gordy could work on them….and if he was busy and he had someone else do it, maybe even Todd…Sonny would be sure he knew what to do. Sonny died in 1997 after spending 17 years at Christian Community Home in Hudson. My condolences to you all. I also worked at the Hudson School with Shirley. Bev Nuessmeier

  594. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. John was such a trooper and a fighter through all the physical plagues he endured. My fondest memories of him are being up at the cabin and watching him tinker on a tractor, truck, lawnmower or whatever needed a tune up at the time. He was an incredibly intelligent man who had a humble heart and loved the outdoors. I learned so much about how to survive in the woods from John and Sam. It saddens my heart that his spirit is gone from this world, but I know he is finally at peace and pain-free. Blessings to you all and I will be in continuous prayer for you. We miss you already Papa John.

  595. We didn’t know Bill, but we highly esteem his younger brother, Jeff and family. But for all who mourn his loss, we offer these words:

    And so the number of saints above is increased by one, leaving behind an empty space that will never be filled except through the gift of memory. We celebrate with you Bill’s life and the many lives he touched.

    May you miss him deeply, forgive him often, and always claim the best of him in you. Our sympathies, thoughts, and prayers remain with you in your grief even as you reflect on the promises of God to provide a reunion in heaven.

    Liz and Dan Bruch

  596. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of John. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth he performed all sorts of astounding miracles. Jesus Christ cured some of the people from whatever diseases and infirmities they had Matthew 9:35. Jesus Christ also brought back to life some of the people that had fallen asleep in death one of them was his friend Lazarus that had been dead for 4 days John 11: 11-44. These astounding miracles that Jesus performed while he was here on Earth is a foreshadow of what will take place very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under his kingdom rule Daniel 2:44 that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord’s Prayer Matthew 6:10 no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  597. Charlie,
    We will miss you every single day and love you forever. We will carry you in our hearts, always.

    Troy, Michelle, and Max,
    There is nothing we can say, but we love you very much and are here for you always.

    ♡Aimee, Sydney, & Jeremy

  598. John was a great brother! He would take me with him on many fun adventures as a kid and an adult. We made wonderful memories hunting and fishing together at “the cabin.”
    He was such a smart man. John could figure out how to fix anything.
    I will miss him so much.
    Sorry for your loss Diane, Erica, Holly and Eydie.

  599. Troy and Michelle, I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that you find peace and healing during this very difficult time. God is good, even when we don’t understand it.
    Take care
    Tom and Tamara

  600. Dear Barb and family,
    I am so sorry to learn of Ken’s passing. May God bring you peace and many happy memories. Barb Lewerer

  601. RIP Uncle Glen. I’m sorry I never got back there to fish with you.
    Marty Youngren Gig Harbor WA.

  602. We shared so many wonderful times together with Bev, Doug, Robin & the Torgerson Family, the most recent being Christmas Day, 2017. A rather riotous Christmas Day and dinner filled with laughter and memorable stories. We are blessed to be embraced as members of Bev’s extended family of extries!! We rejoice in the beauty of her life.

  603. I remember Mrs. Torgerson well from my days living in the “Highlands” and being friends with her daughter Kathy. I had the pleasure of seeing Mrs. Torgerson every day when I worked at Highlands School on summers home from college. Mrs. Torgerson was a very sweet, kind, loving person. My thought and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time. Rest in peace Mrs. Torgerson. You will be missed by many. xo

  604. Mr. Torgerson and my Dad both worked for 3M and that’s how we first got to know the family. When they moved into the neighborhood, Mrs. Torgerson was a member of the same woman’s groups my Mom was and they were good friends. The Oldest daughter Kathy and I went to school together through high school. There’s something about being from “THE HIGHLANDS” and being a “Highlands Parent” or “kid”. I Imagine that Mrs Torgerson is sitting at the table with a lot of the Highlands Moms that have gone before and the “Bitch and Stitch Club” is welcoming their newest member! The lady knew how to wear fashion on a salesman’s budget! She was one of a kind!

  605. Dear Kathy,

    My thoughts are with you and your family as you mourn the passing of your mother. I think our parents’ generation is leaving us with a wonderful legacy of the importance of family, loving homes, and tradition. Will be keeping you in my prayers and thoughts.

    Nancy Meyer

  606. Bev Torgerson was unforgettable — talented and determined. Thinking of you all and remembering the house in the Highlands.

  607. As I sit here blurry eyed thinking of my Uncle Glen I think about how much he liked to fish. Just about every time I go fishing I think about how my brother Jack and I must of recieved the fishing gene from my uncles on both sides of our family. Our dad used take us fishing but he wasn’t passionate about it. He rarely fished after we got old enough to go on our own. One memory that is etched in my mind is when I was about 12 years old and we had driven the 500 + miles from Michigan to Baldwin and it was getting dark and we were getting close to my grandparents farm we came around a corner and there were 2 fishermen by a bridge putting there gear away when my mom says ” that’s Glen and Everett” . We stopped to talk to them. I asked if they caught any ? Well Glen opened his creel and showed me his Trout. Wow! I had never seen Trout that big! From that day on I thought of my uncles as fishing legends. RIP Uncle Glen

  608. With extreme regret hearing of Sandy’s death at such a young age.
    Hadn’t seen her since we were both much younger, but always kept track of here through my Mom, Arlene Quarderer and her Mom Velma Lindow.
    My sincere sympathy to her Mother, husband and children.

    Cousin Kathleen Quarderer Maciejewski

  609. Bev was such a wonderful lady. I always enjoying visiting with her about her sewing projects, among other things. She once made a navy crepe sheath dress with a flowing navy chiffon scarf down the back for me to wear as a bridesmaid in my sister-in-law’s wedding – it was beautifully constructed and fit perfectly, and the fittings were so much fun! My sympathies to the whole family.

  610. We loved her smile. She befriended me when we first moved to Hudson. Loved her beautiful hats.

  611. Barb and Family – We are so sad to hear of Ken’s passing. Our hearts and prayers are with you. We know this has been a really difficult time and pray for peace for your hearts and rest for your selves.

    LuAnne and Paul Larson

  612. We lost a wonderful lady & dear friend. She left us with many memories to hold on to. The world seems a little dimmer without her. All our thoughts and prayers to her family whom she loved
    so much.
    Rest in Peace, dear friend. Say hi to Tom.
    All our love, Dick & Jane Gosselin

  613. My sincere condolences to all of Nancy’s family and relatives. She was a wonderful person. Praying for all for peace and heart healing.

  614. dodinsky – Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said “i’m here for you” and proved it.

    ABBY, JESSIE, CUDD FAMILY …. A TRUE SPIRIT. THE CREATOR & THE, OL’ FLAME ‘BOB’ WERE AWAITING. THOUGHTS BE WITH YOU ALL THIS START OF JANUARY 2018. — JEVON —

  615. The fun we had at Dicks,., Red Sweats and probably my house will never be forgotten.to this date whenever i hear songs from Steve Millers book of dreams album think of playing volleyball with Bob and Nancy and so many others at Prohls point . RIP

  616. I went to high school with Nancy. She was probably one of the kindest people I have ever met. Her family was always extremely kind to me as well; they were just those rare “good folk” you always wanted to be around. I’m so very sorry to hear about her passing as I’m sure everyone else is.
    My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family this week.
    Gerri A. Larson

I am so thankful I got to know you and you gave me great advice and told me to stay strong and not give up! Very inspiring even while you were battling your own stuff I promise I will continue fighting this battle I have that you only knew about. Watch down on all of us as I know in my heart Heaven has gained an amazing Angel who has a heart of gold! R.I.P until we meet again someday!!

    Sending love prayers and hugs to all of you during this difficult time.

  627. My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. May God’s loving-kindness comfort you during this time of sadness.

  628. Uncle Keith was a very good man. A truly nice man. Very friendly and thoughtful and always ready to provide a laugh, smile, or funny story. I will not remember him as an 80-year-old man, but will choose instead to remember him very fondly as a much much younger man, and an uncle who very much liked to laugh. My sympathies and condolences to my cousin Mike and family on his passing……………Greg M.

  629. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I hope you can find some comfort in knowwing that your Dad is with your Mother. I didn’t know your Dad, but I knew your wonderful Mother, Mary Ann who really loved your Dad.
    I babysat for the six of you while you lived in Thorp. I often thought of the ‘Lasiuk Family’ and wondered how to get in touch.

    On Sunday I read the obituary in the Thorp Courior. My t houghts are with all of you.

  631. Danny was a friend to all and I felt his friendly nature the first time I met him. Though I didn’t know him for all that long, I saw how he impacted many people who were drawn to his kindly ways and his sense of knowing when to give an encouraging word. I personally heard more positive things from him than negative in most of my encounters with him.

    So, he will be missed and it was a blessing know Dan and to be one of his friends since moving to the Hudson area some 16 years ago.

    God bless Dan Wittek

  632. I am so sorry to see that Florence has passed away. She was my Dad’s first cousin. My dad is Harold Brunner, son of Fred and Laura Brunner. Your family has my deepest sympathy.

  633. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends Bill leaves behind. Bill was such a sweet caring man who welcomed all with open arms. He will truly be missed by those who knew and loved him. My prayers now as Diane and all the children and grandchildren grieve the loss of such a important part of their family .
    R.I.P BILL ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  634. So SORRY to hear that Tom passed!! I worked by him at AW, yrs. Ago!! Also, when we lived in Osceola. Sorry to the FAMILY for their loss! Lloyd, Ann, Anderson

  635. Dick will be remembered by so many of us as a creative, energetic and humble man who was a pleasure to work with. He was an example of special talents and positive attitude.

    We can all hope to meet and work with people like Dick.

    Our thoughts are with you,

  636. So sorry for your loss. I remember your dad/grandpa from grandparents day at school. He was the kind of person who made a lasting positive impression after meeting him.

  637. Sorry for the loss your family is going through. We hope it brings you peace to know that he’s no longer suffering and instead has been reunited with family in Heaven. Hugs to all of you.

  639. Mr . Hotujec was my 7th grade math teacher. He was amazing in every way. When I sat and cried because I couldn’t do math he told me I could and he promised to walk me every inch of the way through 7th grade math. He made math fun, he made class fun and he made people laugh and smile. He was a wonderful man, a wonderful teacher and a prime example of what being a teacher is all about. He genuinely cared for his students. He loved his job and it was quite evident. Without him I never would have made it to where I am today.We have lost a wonderful person.

  640. I had Mr. Hotujec for 7th grade math, like Lora Filipiak Bullert, in 1977-8. I was in the section that was the last class of the day. I remember his great sense of humor – applying the nickname “weasel” to one of my closest friends and classmates due to this person’s habit of playing practical jokes on Mr. Hotujec. He never got angry or upset, and you could see the hint of a smile or smirk each time this would happen, reflecting both a wry sense of humor as well as being somewhat impressed by the creativity of the practical joke. Most of all, I remember the timed multiplication drills – and continuing to work and practice until I was able to finish one within the time limit. I credit you, Mr. Hotujec, for helping to develop my love of mathematics. Thank you so very, very much. You were an incredible teacher and human being and will be missed.

  641. Mr. Hotujec was my 7th grade math teacher (I am 31 now!) and I have never forgotten his kindness or his patience. I was one of those kids who was convinced that I would never understand math, but he always was around during lunch to help me (even when I was in 8th grade and struggling, I would still go to him!) I am honored to have known him and been taught by him. There are so few teachers like him in the world, and I hope that all of us who were blessed to have him teach us can pass on a little bit of his goodness. My thoughts are with his family, and I pray that Mr. Hotujec is at peace, and that peace will come to all those who miss him.

  642. I will have many fun days with Duke and Betty to think about at PVH. So glad I could be there to meet him, and say goodby at the end….

  643. I had Mr Hotujec for math in about 1977. He was one of the first to encourage me that it was cool to like math. He was a positive role model. My condolences to the family.

  644. We would like to send our prayers and condolences to Lomoine family . He has been a family friend for a long time and always had a great time with him. He well be missed.?

  645. My heart is hurting for the loss of your wife and mother. I have been blessed that Mary has been a very dear friend to me for many years and I am so sad to hear of her passing. I’m sad for us–her family and friends–but happy for Mary because she is now resting in the Glory of God . . . always her end goal. We shared many hours of talking and companionship and I will miss her more than I can express. She was a woman of the GREATEST faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and our Blessed Mother Mary and she was an example and teacher, not only to me, but to anyone and everyone that she met. I am confident that her Lord’s work and witness on earth has earned Mary a special place in heaven. I will keep your family in my prayers. May Comfort and Peace be with you.

  646. We will miss Tim’s jokes. We often stood around laughing and joking with him. We got our dogs around the same time and would laugh and compare what they learned as if we were comparing children. He was proud of his family and often boasted of them. He could talk to anyone and was a great neighbor to all. We enjoyed helping him when he needed it. We will miss him but we know that he is with the Lord. We will keep his family in our prayers. God bless all of you.

  647. We are so sorry for your loss. I had brief contacts with Florence throughout the last few years. We shared an interest in genealogy and she was most gracious and helpful.

  648. He was such a nice man! I’d forgotten the “keep smiling!” but great advice for all. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  649. Some of my best memories of Duke were when we would meet with him and Betty Lee at Denny’s in Menomonie or the Hearty Platter in Wilson. We shared a love of pancakes. We also shared a bond of being the support for talented spouses.
    He was a man of quiet wisdom.

  650. I’m 40 now and had him as a middle school math teacher. Never a dull moment. Silly guy and great teacher. He always said “keep smiling ” praying for his family. He will always be smiling down on those he loved.

  651. Florence was a great Lady who was an example of compassion giving of her time and her love to so many people and causes. She was a great librarian who built a great library for the children of Saint Patrick School. She was a great friend and mentor. I will never forget the wonderful discussions we had about Jerusalem and peace in the middle east and the future of the Catholic Church. As someone who had traveled to the Holy Land it was wonderful to have the opportunity to listen to her words of wisdom. The greatest treasure Florence leaves behind is her wonderful loving children and grandchildren. There is now one more star in heaven and I will pray for her and to her because I know she is there waiting and watching over us.

  652. Sandy and I send our condolences to the entire Simon family. Florence (Flo to Sandy) will be remembered by us for her love and care for her family, and her obvious love of life. Seems she always has a smile and a kind word for us. We did not get to spend a lot of time with Florence but those time we had will become cherished memories. The loss of a mother is among the most painful of all, and they will always live on in our hearts. Our prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.

  653. I hugely admire Floyd for his unselfish care for his dear wife. Floyd was not exactly spry in his last years, yet he somehow managed to continue provide a loving home for Cathy. I’m certain that being with Floyd and living in familiar surroundings was comforting to her.

  654. Chuck was our friend… he was our son Brian’s Godfather. Please look out for us from the other side. We hope to go fishing with you again someday. Thanks for the memories. Rest In Peace.
    Love,
    Linda and Scott

  655. I always enjoyed seeing her when Pete brought her to Ace Hardware with him. She always had a smile and would like a little laugh once in awhile. Bless you Peter for taking such good care of her. She was always dressed nice and her hair was fixed just so. Prayers for you and your family. Jo

  656. Kay will be missed dearly. She was my mentor. She hired me over 28 years ago and I remember the day well. I admire her for her strength, knowledge, kindness, and hospitality. I remember her beautiful Magnolia tree in her backyard – this tree was not meant to withstand rough Wisconsin weather but I believe it’s standing to this day . I also remember her garden – full of beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables. It was a favorite day for all when she would invite us to her home for lunch. When she first moved to Wisconsin and she and Bob opened the business in the 1950’s, she was a pioneering woman for her time. She was an equal partner in the business and as her reputation grew, peers sought her knowledge for help. She lived her life exactly how she wanted to live it and nothing stood in her way. Although she will be missed, her legacy will live on in those she loved.

  657. Beautiful lady that whenever I saw her had that twinkle in her eye that made you wonder what she was thinking. Irene and I will miss her.

  658. Troy and Wendy-
    I’m so sorry to read this. Your dad was such a good man. Your parents were incredibly kind to me.

  659. I just wanted to express my condolences for your loss. Losing a loved one and a Father is always a painful experience. May God give you grace and peace in this sad time. Blessings always.

  660. Ken and Dawn our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad and painful time.

  661. So very sorry for your loss. Our son played hockey with Matt and we remember his happy go lucky attitude. Our prayers are with you at this this time.

  662. Having been Sandi’s friend I spent many hours in their home during the years we attended Saint Patrick’s elementary school . I think I knocked when I came to the door but it was a lively household and Sam seemed to be the quietest .Sandi and I were not quiet. I’m so glad I got to see Sam at our 50 year high school reunion where he did not seem to have changed a bit . I wish I had talked to him longer of course. I always remembered their birthday but since leaving Hudson I never knowledged it until last year when I called Sandi. I wish he had known that every March 3 I thought of them. I’m so glad that he enjoyed his retirement am so sorry that he passed away so young . Family is in my prayers . Love and sympathy .Carolyn Ross Buntrock

  663. Kim and Heidi,
    I am so devastated to learn of Trenton’s passing. The sky has gained another star. I loved getting to know Trenton and you both. I always admired his strength in whatever was thrown at him and you both for being wonderful parents faced with many hard decisions. I miss watching Elmo with him and hanging out in the morning before one of you would get there. I saw you all on the news and I was so happy that he got to fly. What an awesome memory! I am unable to come on Friday but please know my heart is with you and that I am thinking of you both. I will never forget Trenton or his wonderful smile. Also, every time I see or hear Elmo, he’s there!

  664. Dawn, Ken, and family I am so very sorry for your loss. No parent should have to go through this…. you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  665. MATT was a very quiet, polite young man. I had him as a student several times while I was a sub teacher. He will be greatly missed by many close friends and family.so sorry for your loss.

  666. So very sorry for your lost of your grandmother.
    My God hold you close in this time of sorrow to comfort
    your hearts. It is so very difficult to loose a love one
    but always remember she will always be with you and be waiting on
    you for the day you will be reunited.
    Don’t cry for your grandmother she is in a great place.

  667. I am saddened to hear of Marie’s death. She was a sweet little lady and I enjoyed visiting with her at CCH when my mom was a resident. She enjoyed playing bingo, as did my mom. They may be celebrating at that giant bingo game in heaven! My sympathies.

  668. I am very sorry for your loss. I can’t even imagine your pain. Trenton touched my life and heart! I am proud to have known him. May you find comfort in knowing how amazing of a little boy he was. Thank you for having me in your lives.

  669. Beverly, Janet and family

    So sorry to hear about your mom passing away. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. She was always so friendly and bubbly. She will be missed by all.

    Nancy (Veenendall) Haines

  670. With deepest sympathy to Shari and all the Haroldson family. I first met Tom back around 1976-77 working with him at Gould Inc. in Eau Claire where we shared Christian tracts, of which I still have those and later worked with him for a time at PPMC. Tom truly was a Disciple of
    Jesus Christ. There are many verses which express his commitment to the Gospel, he certainly lived this one:
    1 Timothy 6:12
    Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
    The Lord be with you,

  671. Shari and family. Prayers hugs and sincere thoughts. Tom was a great man. His smile was contagious. You both will have a special place in my heart. Julie and Mike Gerber

  672. My Deepest Sympathy. Losing a family member is difficult, but your precious memories will stay with you forever. Thinking about them and talking about the good times as a family is comforting. As the days pass sometimes the difficulty rises because of really missing our loved one or being overwhelmed about “what now” or “I didn’t get the chance to say . .” There is an encouraging Scripture I want to share, “When anxieties overwhelmed me, You (God) comforted and soothed me.” Knowing that God is there for you is a real source of comfort. I really hope these words bring you peace and solace. (Psalms 94:19)

  673. So sad to lose Jeff. I am so happy my son Matt got to visit him prior to this. My fondest memories in life were when we coached the SSP traveling baseball team. Will never forget those times or you my friend !!!

    Kevin and family

  674. Miss Mable was one of the most thoughtful and kind ladies I’ve ever known. She and Bud were my next door neighbors for many years when my kiddos and I lived in the apartment on Cedar Street. She always looked out for us and my daughter called her Grandma Mabel. My son was too little to know her well, but whenever I voted, Miss Mable always asked about both of them. She will be missed! My deepest sympathies to her family.
    Chris Johnson-Bohl ??❤️

  675. To Mabel’s family –
    I never met a more faithful election worker, Republican and volunteer in my life. She was a treasure to so many, and always close in my heart. We had many great discussions over the years, but none more special than when I ran for County Treasurer. Mabel and Tee Heiser – supported me more than anyone I had ever known. While she will be missed, her spirit of love, kindness and volunteerism will live in all of us in days to come. My deepest sympathies to Mabel’s Family.
    Cheryl & Dan Slind & family

  676. This was such an unexpected loss. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family especially Cody. We had the joy of knowing Jeff and his family for the past 24 years. Our boys grew up with Cody. We know that Jeff is at peace in Heaven with his loved ones gone before him and with God. One special memory that Jeff always joked about whenever we were together was the time that he fed our German shepherd Sadie tequila under the kitchen table so we wouldn’t see. All of a sudden Sadie couldn’t walk straight and Jeff fessed up to giving it to her! Rest in peace Jeff, you will always be remembered and thought of as part of our family.

  677. Tom remains in my memories and heart as a true loving man of God. His kindness and love for his family. Although he may be gone in the flesh his spirit will forever remain and live on through his wife, children, grandchildren and everyone whose life he has touched. ❤❤

  678. We got to know Dolores here in Norway when she came on a visit with her husband. They and my parents, Johan (Altons cousin) and Margarethe, became very good friends and visited each other in Norway and in the US. Later my husbond and I visited them in St.Paul and in Ft.Myers. We have many happy memories from these visits.
    Dolores was a wonderful lady.

  679. One of the kindest, thoughtful and generous people we have ever known. He was married to Dave’s cousin Myra or June as we always knew her. Bud will be remembered for all the things he did for other people. We want to express our deepest sympathy to Robert, Thomas and Gary. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.

    Dave and Jane Petersen

  680. Delores was a class mate of mine. (Class of 1944) She always made it a point to be at our Reunions. She was a wonderful,beautiful and caring person. We will miss her. Please except my sincere Sympathy.

  681. Our parents give us life. Our grandparents give us a sense of who we are and where we came from. Grandma impacted my life in so many ways and influenced who I am today. I will love you always and save a special corner of my heart just for you.

  682. Bud and their family lived in our neighborhood on 7th street in Hudson where our children grew up together. I am sorry I am not physically able to go to your dads funeral. My deepest sympathy to your family.

    Saw and talked to Bud at length at church each Sunday. We all loved him. What a wonderful and kind man. He never failed to ask about Bruce each time. We exchanged many conversations about our children . He will be missed by many.

  683. Eddie,

    I love you dearly & cherish the friendship we developed as teens! I will never forget how we got each other through one of the most difficult times in our lives. I will never forget the laughter, the tears, the hours spent walking in the park, how you saw the perfection in me I didn’t see in myself and I saw yours! I won’t forget our 8th grade banquet, almost getting beat up because a girl liked you & thought you liked me, our trip to Silvercliff, the graduation trip to Dallas with concerts & clubs, and all of the other stories & memories we shared! We were such dreamers! I pray that you are at peace my prince & all your dreams can come true in heaven! I love you so much & am so thankful for every moment I had with you and even more grateful we reconnected when we did! Rest In Peace Love! ???

  684. Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day.
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.

    Goodbyes are not forever.
    Goodbyes are not the end.
    They simply mean I’ll miss you,…
    Until we meet again.

    Rest in piece cousin. I will never forget the memories. We will see each other again one day!
    Love April

  685. Kay was so good to my mother when they lived across the hall from each other at Wintergreen. She was solicitous and generous. Her nursing skills reassured me. And she was so proud of her family. My deepest sympathy to all.
