Doris L. Eisenhauer

1931 - 2013

Doris L Eisenhauer, 82, of Kenosha passed away on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at Brookside Care Facility.

Doris was born on March 27, 1931. A life-long resident of Kenosha, Doris graduated from Mary D. Bradford High in 1949. She married Chester on Feb. 24, 1951, at St. Marys Lutheran Church and worked at John Mansville and the University of Wisconsin Madison Agriculture Office. Doris enjoyed yearly family vacations to the cabin her father built on Crystal Lake in Bayfield County, loved to bake and was renowned for her pies and German potato salad. Though Doris was a victim of Spinal Bulbar Polio in 1956 and post Polio effects thereafter, she fought valiantly daily to keep a lovely home and raise five children. She was a dedicated volunteer to the Post Polio cause and a wicked Scrabble player.

She is survived by her husband, Chester A Eisenhauer; sister, Alice Sorensen-Gregory, La Jolla, Calif.; children, Brett A. (Cheryl) Eisenhauer, Lily Lake, Wis., Susan B. (Marc Levy) Eisenhauer, Fort Wayne, Ind. Doug A. Eisenhauer, Kenosha, Wis., Scot A. (Tess) Eisenhauer, Iron River, Wis., Kris (Tom) Rowan, Temecula, Calif.; grandchildren, Cory B. (Heather) Eisenhauer, Brett J. Eisenhauer, Austin, Tyler and Nathan Eisenhauer, Grace and Ruby McKennon; great-grandchildren, Molly, Erik and Maci Eisenhauer, Benjamin Eisenhauer and many nieces, nephews and special friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Roy and Martha Sorensen, beloved Lizzie Beth, her tortoise shell kitty of 20 years.

A private memorial service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to:
