Lou was such a wonderful lady. I got to know her in my quilt guild for many years. Recently while she was at Hillside Manor one of her daughters asked if she could join our sewing group that was meeting there because another member was also there temporarily. It was such a joy to see Lou again and spend some time with her and she showed us what she had been working on. Thank you to her daughter that thought to ask if we would include her, I know Lou enjoyed it. So sorry for your loss of your Mother.

Our condolences to all. We enjoyed having her as a neighbor and feel fortunate we got to know her a little in the past 20 years. She kept us entertained at times, and I was always impressed by her remembering Patrick on special occasions. I was talking to another long-time Horicon resident about her and it was remarked; "Horicon lost a good one". Amen.

Aunt Lu led a life to be celebrated, and she will always be someone I loved, admired, and one that I will always feel her presence during times of reflection.

She was fair and kind. She seemed to notice, cheer for, or help the ones who were left out to level the playing field.

She was with me in the cold weather months during childhood even when she seemed so far away in Wisconsin by using the quilts she had sewn that I covered up with at night or the sweaters she knitted for me. Those sweaters were saved for special days like school pictures or picture exchanges because they made me feel special because no one had sweater pattern like it.

She was with me at Christmas throughout my childhood when we decorated the Christmas tree with the hand painted ceramic ornaments she had made for me from past years or the new one I would unwrap with great anticipation every year as a Christmas gift. The Christmas tree’s decorations were special to me every year during childhood because no one had a Christmas tree “blinged out” with Aunt Lu’s hand painted ceramic ornaments.

She will be with me today due to a porcelain doll she gave me as a keepsake during my childhood that was proudly on display in my childhood home until 3 years ago because my mother loved it as much as I did. It is in a special place now and it will be with me throughout my life so that I can always admire Aunt Lu’s craftsmanship and her beauty.

Remembering Aunt Lu is the easy part but missing her for me will take a little time. Peace to the family during this time. “Keep on Smilin” Aunt Lu you are with Uncle Bob now. You left your mark in this world and on me and my family.

Hard to say goodbye to your mom and my friend. Your mom, dad, and family played a huge influence on me and my family. She taught me many things in cooking, antiques, and more, In fact to this day I make one of the family favorites, potatoes and ham that is one of "Matt,Matt's" favorites. Her energy, skills, amazed me. Lu was a girl scout leader,and I was her co-leader. Her insight and views on life, living, religion,world ,politics etc. family, made me think beyond my views, expanded my mind. I will miss our conversations on all subjects and our many joint family times together. I remember Matt refused to call you parents Mr and Mrs,Pedigo, as I was taught to address any one older than I was, he continued to call them, "Bob and Lu" He'd have "coffee" with your mom. She'd call me and tell me he was at your house. Your dad would come to our door and asked "if Matt could come outside and do yard work with him". So many memories. Your dad bringing Nan's play house to Green Bay ,Your family joining us at the lake for snowmobiling, Your dad and Julie attending Matt's high school graduation party, and so many more. I will miss my telephone times with her, and miss her. Our sympathies to all of you. Hugs and Love Betty

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Sending our sympathy to Lou’s family such a spunky lady. How could you not love her I loved visiting with her. One of my favorite visits when she sang a song from a Shirley Temple movie. She knew I loved Shirley Temple and the dolls. Dan and Carol Reinhardt

My deepest sympathy on the passing of your mom and grandma. I had the privilege of knowing your parents in horicon on my paper route. I loved looking at your mom's beautiful porcelain dolls. They were the sweetest people. Please know that I send you prayers of peace in her passing. God bless you all.
