Ashlee Christen (Putnam) STEELE Obituary
Died unexpectedly on Friday, August 22, 2014 in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, along with her cherished sister Kacee (Putnam) Tollefsbol. Ashlee was born January 24, 1975 in Laguna Hills, California. Growing up she lived in California, Michigan, and Minnesota. Ashlee was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She was a gentle, fun, and deeply appreciated 3s teacher at Christ Memorial Preschool. She had boundless love for children, including her students, many nieces and nephews, and most especially the son and daughter to whom she was fiercely devoted. Ashlee delighted in being part of a big family and took her role as the oldest of four siblings semi-seriously - she projected authority when necessary but was too cheerful and witty to be serious for long. She approached challenges with confident determination and was beautiful inside and out. Ashlee is survived by her children Jack (turning 13 this week) and Rachael (10); husband Andrew Steele of Fitchburg; parents Mike and Diane (DuPuis) Putnam of Stillwater; brother Brad (Rachelle) Putnam; sister Hailee (Steven) Meisterling; grandmother Joan DuPuis; and many other adoring family members and friends. Grandmother Norma Putnam died recently in Wisconsin Rapids, coincidentally also on August 22. A celebration of Ashlee and Kacee's life will be Friday, 2:00 P.M. at CHURCH OF ST. MICHAEL, 611 South Third Street Stillwater. Family will receive friends following the service at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Ashlee Steele Memorial Fund, for the benefit of her children. Call or visit any Wells Fargo branch and refer to account # 658 421 6003. 2800 Curve Crest Blvd., Stillwater 651-439-5511
