(CALLAHAN) SORENSEN IN LOVING MEMORY OF OUR GRANDMOTHER Donna (Callahan) Sorensen 10/23/1926 - 01/22/2014 Grandma's Gone To Heaven One quiet day the angels came And took Grandma far away. But in the stillness of the night We could almost hear her say Dear Grandchildren - I will miss you You mean so much to me But Jesus called me to his side In Heaven I will be. A place of God's great beauty No tears or earthly cares Only peace and joy forever And love beyond compare. So remember all the good times Don't think about the sad. Treasure all the special moments Through the years we've always had. And if you trust in Jesus I can promise this and more You will get a hug from Grandma Someday on Heaven's golden shore. Forever Missed By Your Grandchildren, Dan, Chris, Adam, Ryan, Chad, Rachel, Thorin, Bailey I miss you Great Grandma! Love, Trent

Stone, Charles - Kenosha  
Charles P. Stone 1940 - 2015 Charles P. "Big Time Charlie" Stone of Kenosha, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015, at Hospice House, surrounded by his three loving daughters. He was born in Kenosha on Jan. 18, 1940, the eldest son of Charles L. and Olga (Karach) Stone. Charles was raised in Kenosha, having attended St. Mary High School. He was employed by American Motors Corp. for 30 years, retiring in 1988. Charles married Barbara Day of Kenosha in 1967, with whom he had two daughters, Teresa and Lara. In 1979, he married Jill Parker and together they had a daughter, Elizabeth. Charles enjoyed experimenting and teaching his daughters about the wonders of the world and science while pushing them to think, question and learn. He was a free spirit and had an acute sense of humor, which he instilled in his daughters. He also passed on to them his love of music, playing classical, pop and his personal favorite, jazz, on the piano. He enjoyed among other things, tennis, fishing, chess, backgammon, science fiction, and crossword puzzles. He loved to pass the time playing card games such as bridge, gin, and pinochle with his buddies. His most beloved activity, however, was billiards. He was one of the most respected pool players in Wisconsin and Illinois. His talent at pocket pool earned him the nickname "Big Time Charlie." Charlie was the Wisconsin State straight pool champion at the age of 27 in 1967. In that same year, he went on to the U.S. Open Championships and set a then record for average run per inning. He later became an excellent 3-cushion billiard player. In the 1960s, he won an exhibition match in Kenosha against the late, great Minnesota Fats. In his later years, Charlie could be found at noon every day at Claw's Billiards in Kenosha. Left to cherish his memory are his three daughters, Teresa Lubkeman and Lara (Keith Nix) Stone, both of Mesquite, Texas, and Elizabeth Stone of Racine; his brothers David (Beverly) Stone of Salt Lake City, Utah; Greg (Gail Karabetsos), and Steve (Patricia) Stone, both of Kenosha; and his sister, Mary (Kevin) Andrasko of Oshkosh. He is further survived by his granddaughter and two great-grandsons, many nieces and nephews, and friends too numerous to mention by name. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Greg's wife, Crescentia (Bartholomay) Stone in 2006. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, at 1 p.m. at the Piasecki-Althaus Funeral Home. A Visitation for Charles will be held on Sunday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial remembrances directed to the family would be appreciated.
