Grno, Charles "Bob" - Kenosha  
Charles "Bob" Grno 1930 - 2015 Charles "Bob" Grno, age 85 of Kenosha, died on Sunday, May 31, 2015, at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born on Easter Sunday, April 5, 1930, in Racine, he was the eldest of three sons born to the late John and Pauline (Lidik) Grno. His family moved to Waukegan, Ill., for a short time. They then settled in Kenosha on the shores of Lake Michigan, where his father set up a shoe repair shop, with the family home attached to the store. It was here that Bob developed many lifelong hobbies and interests including sailing, boating, photography, carpentry, astronomy and music. Bob mastered whatever he undertook – he was a Renaissance man! At age 16, he met the love of his life, Emma Faraca at Art's Lunch Box, where she was a waitress. After a persistent courtship, they were married on October 29, 1949 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Their union was blessed with 65 years of marriage. He enlisted into the U.S. Navy during the Korean War and was a photographer. Daughters, Jeanne and Joanne were born during these Navy years. After his discharge, daughter Joy arrived. Professionally, Bob's careers had involved his creative nature. He worked as a carpenter and home builder and built his family's dream house. He was also a cement contractor and excavator. His business expanded to include a gas station, mini-mart, car washes and laundromat under the name of Mid-W Enterprises with his partner Robert Ventura. In the 1970's Bob took up downhill skiing and became a ski instructor at Wilmot Mountain. He was very interested in camping and Bob and his wife traveled across the U.S. and north to Canada. Camping trips allowed Bob to photograph many of the National Parks. Music was always a source of enjoyment for Bob. Throughout his life, he continued to love music and electronics and was always on the cutting edge of technology. Photography was always a passion and he participated in many Midwest art fairs and filled a box with award ribbons. He took up stained glass and created beautiful artwork for many to enjoy. Over the years, Bob's entire family was fortunate to travel together and celebrate milestones. He will forever be in the hearts of those he loved especially his super loving wife, Emma Grno; his three daughters, Dr. Jeanne (Raul) Medina of Milwaukee, Joanne Boysen of Colorado and Joy (Douglas Czerwinski) Lane of Verona; his nine grandchildren, Matthew, Meryl and Martin Medina, Jill Ingenito, Joseph Boysen, Jenny Dahl, Michael Lane, Lindsay Stenson and Robbie Lane; his seven precious great grandchildren; his brother, George Grno; and many loving nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a brother, John Grno. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 5, 2015 beginning with a prayer service at 9:45 a.m. from Piasecki-Althaus Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 2224 45th Street. Interment will follow with full military honors in Sunset Ridge Memorial Park. A visitation for Bob will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, June 4, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital, The Kenosha Fire Department and United Hospital Systems-Kenosha Hospital ER for the special care they provided to Bob.

Donsing, Gloria - Middleton  
Gloria Donsing 1924 - 2015 Gloria Donsing, 91, passed away on Friday, May 22, 2015. She was born in Kenosha, Wis., in 1924, and lived there until 2002 when she moved to Madison to be close to family. Gloria grew up on an inlet of Lake Michigan, and the lake gave her a deep appreciation for the natural world. She had the great skill of living very much in the present, always noticing things like a beautiful cloud or flower. Gloria was perceptive, had a great sense of curiosity, and constantly challenged her mind. That curiosity extended to the greater world, as she and her husband Baden traveled extensively, including a walk on the Great Wall of China. Gloria was strong, decisive and lived independently. She thoroughly enjoyed her community of friends at the Sauk Gardens Apartments and maintained a particularly close group of friends in Kenosha since her junior high school days. Gloria's survivors include her sons, Alan (Susan Felker-Donsing) Donsing and Thomas (Kathleen) Donsing, and her grandson, James, all of the Madison area. She was preceded in death by Baden, her husband of 45 years. Gloria died with real courage and grace. She wished to extend her most sincere thanks and best wishes to all her family and friends. She was also very appreciative of the excellent care she received at Madison's UW Hospital during her final brief illness. Services will be private.
