Passed away due to a concussion caused by a fall on the 23rd of June. An ambulance took her to Grafton, and onto St. Luke’s Milwaukee without success. She was then forwarded to a clinic much closer to her family. This period allowed her daughter to attend from Texas, a son from South Carolina, another son from Tennessee followed by her other daughter and husband. Although this was a tragic loss, she was able to have one of us at her bedside the entire period. We were able to do this because of the fortune of my wife of sixty years setting the example of her family’s upbringing.
An example of what a person must do was Louise! When an elderly woman was living next door, the ambulance came. My wife asked of her condition. She was told “very poorly”. Louise asked if her family were notified. They were, but the distance was quite far. What I can proudly say was she got into the ambulance and sat by Medora’s side throughout the night. Louise said to do otherwise is unthinkable. That is the woman I married and spent sixty years with. Her attributes were many, far too many to list. But she attempted to set her principles, as a replacement teacher, a hospital aid for 25 years, and a staff member of the local German Club. But most of all she was a mother, a guiding light, and an example of the person that we should strive to be.
