We wish to acknowledge our sister-in-law, Donna who is truly our angel here on earth. She was at the bedside of mom and dad night and day for the past month. Not only caring for their every need, but guiding all of us on their final journey. She held all of our hands, prayed with us, and gently made sure all our needs were met.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to Herma Heart Center of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin or the charity of your choice appreciated.

Bob & Kathleen, such a loving couple with a wonderful sense of humor that was passed down among the family. They spread their gifts of compassion and love and its abundant in their whole family. Whenever I hear the song “Footloose” , I can remember Bob dancing at a wedding, a fantastic time. Whenever I hear corn roast, I immediately remember riding along in the station wagon with Kathleen driving to go pick the corn for the Stelters corn roast! They were really great people, my condolences to your entire family. Love Heidi Cowan

Such a journey your family has been through. Not a pleasant or happy one but hopefully you can take some comfort in knowing you are a loving, strong, and close family. Your parents did a wonderful job in raising such caring children. God Bless you in this time of sorrow, and yet such a blessing knowing that two people who loved each other as they did, will travel hand in hand in their next journey.
