She is also survived by 23 grandchildren, 46 1/2 great grandchildren, with 1 great-great grandchild due in January.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ray in 1973, son-in-law Dennis Noltemeyer, daughter-in-law Bernice Endres, grandson Matt Mueller, as well as brothers Joseph, Ervin, LaVerne, and Herbert. 

The family wishes to thank special care giver Maria Hamlin, and also Ruth Acker, Herbie and Eileen Statz and her wonderful neighbors for all their caring visits. In addition, special thanks to Dr. Ranum and his staff for all of their attention and care.

Funeral services were held on Dec. 9, 2019 at Saint John’s Catholic Church t in Waunakee. Friends called on Dec. 8, 2019 at Winn-Cress Funeral Home, Waunakee. Friends also called at the church on Monday before the services.
