Faus, Glenna - Kenosha  
Glenna V. Faus 1933 - 2016 Glenna V. Faus, 83, exited home hospice to meet Jesus on Thursday, April 28, 2016. Born on January 22, 1933 in Seminole, Tex., she was the daughter of the late Lloyd and Vassie (Stanley) Fincher. Glenna graduated from Lamesa High School, where she had been active in the musical and theatrical programs as well as being a starting member of the girls' basketball team. She became the church pianist at the age of 16 at the First Baptist Church of Lamesa. On Sept. 30, 1950, in Lamesa, Tex., she was united in marriage to Larry H. Faus. Together they enrolled in Wayland Baptist University, from which she graduated with honors, double majoring in music and elementary education. They made Kenosha their home when Larry became the Pastor of the Fellowship Baptist Church in 2011. She had four children, Vassie, Lawrence, Bryan and Verla. When Verla started kindergarten, Glenna began teaching middle school choral music, which she did for seventeen years. Six hours a day at the piano resulted in carpal tunnel problems so she returned to college to obtain a Master's degree in reading and was hired as Director of Language arts for the Sparta School System, retiring at age 62. She also served as a consultant in marriage relationships for the Southern Baptist Convention and directed workshops in several states. She continued to play piano for local church services until health problems caused cessation. Glenna is survived by her husband of 65 years, Larry of Sturtevant; her children Vassie (David) Haynes of St. Louis, Lawrence (Patti) Faus of Kenosha, Pastor Bryan (Brenda) Faus of Euless, Tex., and Verla (Sue Frantz) Viera of Seattle, Wash.; seven grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren and her brother, Lloyd Irwin Fincher of Canyon, Tex. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, at 11 a.m. at Fellowship Baptist Church, 1700 89th Street. Interment will follow in Sunset Ridge Memorial Park.

Pehlivan, Susan - Racine  
Susan A. Pehlivan The world changed on April 16, 2016, when Susan A. Pehlivan left this world to receive the rewards awaiting her in the next. She was witty with an amazing sense of sarcasm and humor. She touched more lives than she will ever know. Anyone who was blessed to have known her knew she would always listen, she would give of herself, and never did she seek any recognition for all she had done. When she retired, she spent a number of years living up north, cheering on the Vikings, enjoying the nature around her, fishing, reading and loving her family. To those left behind, and there are many, we will forever miss her smile and her love. We will be sad, but then remember all the great times, stories and memories of this wonderful woman. Mom, you gave all you had to make me the woman I am today, words will never be enough to thank you. Every day of my life I will have you in my heart and be reminded I am who I am because of who you were. Enjoy the scenery, the fishing and the peace. I love you forever.

Cynthia was born to Margaret (nee: Sorensen) and Norman Maegaard on Sept. 3, 1942, in Kenosha. She attended St. George Grade School and graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1960. Shortly after, Cindy followed her dream of becoming a nurse by attending St. Luke's School of Nursing in Racine. During her senior year, she met her future husband, Francis "Frank" Stulac, on a blind date. The two were married on Sept. 2, 1963. Of this union - two wonderful, delightful and intelligent children were born: Daniel in July 1964 and Francine in June 1966. They were the light of Cindy's life and brought her much pride and joy. Cindy was employed as a nurse at St. Mary's Hospital in September in 1966. Though the name changed, Cindy worked in the same hospital – St. Marys, then All Saints Medical Center for over 43 years. Even after she retired, Cindy volunteered at the hospital with the VIP (Volunteers in Partnership) at All Saints Medical Center. Cindy loved movies and musicals and was a voracious reader – often found reading in a quiet corner. Cindy was also a devoted volunteer for the Racine Kilties and Countryside Animal Shelter. She was also active with the Retired Inactive Nurses Group (RING) of Racine. When Frank died in 2003, her heart was broken and life was never the same. Cindy was kind and generous. She will be deeply missed! Cindy is survived by son, Daniel F. Stulac; daughter, Francine M.

In addition to her parents, husband and numerous aunts and uncles, Cindy was preceded in death by Frank's parents, Stella and Frank Stulac; nephew, Tim Stulac and her dearly missed dogs, Bandit, Sable and Gracie.
