Formerly of Greenfield. Elda (nee Mastopietro) peacefully entered God’s loving arms on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at age 96. Beloved Wife of the late Edward Millane for 63 years. Devoted Mom of Janet (John) Certalic and Jeanne (Richard) Rither. Dearly loved by three Grandchildren, Jennifer (Tim) Bickel, Michael (Hope) Certalic and Erin Rither (fiancé Brittany Byers). Also adored by four Great-Grandchildren, George, Grant, Eleanor Certalic and Nathan Bickel. Survived by one brother, William Mastopietro; also many nieces, nephews and special friends.
The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude to the many caring staff at Mission Creek Memory Care in Waukesha for their love and care of Elda for many years. We are also very grateful to and want to thank Badger Hospice care team for their tender mercy, compassion, and support over an unusually extended period of time. They are amazing and loving caregivers.
Elda loved her family and country. She served veterans’ needs by serving in many capacities as a member of the Amvets Auxiliary of Wisconsin. She always put others’ needs and wants before herself. She was filled with lots of energy and was a great seamstress and crafter. Kindness was her middle name. She will be deeply missed because she was a devoted Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. Making a home filled with love, beauty and contentment was her greatest accomplishment. Making others feel appreciated was her specialty.
Private family services were held. Memorial Service to be held in future.
