Dale Lynn Brewster
1955 - 2013
Dale Lynn Brewster, (Nee Schneeberger) 57, passed away peacefully Thursday after a courageous and inspirational battle with cancer.
She was born Dec. 28, 1955, in Kenosha, the second of five children of Dale Schneeberger and the late Martha Schneeberger Johnson. She attended Kenosha schools and graduated from Tremper High School in 1974.
She lived nearly her entire life in Southeastern Wisconsin, most recently in West Allis.
On Jan. 23, 1993, she gave birth to her son, Lukas Brewster, to whom she dedicated her life and love for 20 years.
Dale was a gentle and compassionate soul whose selflessness was marveled at by those who knew her. She volunteered for more than a decade at the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where she was also a longtime client. She was a talented artist and an expert crocheter who used her skills to create beautiful gifts for loved ones for all special occasions and often just because. She never had an easy life but always had an easy smile.
She will be deeply missed by her son, of Waukesha; her father and stepmother, Laura Schneeberger of Stanley, Wis.; her brother and sister-in-law, Deane and Karen Schneeberger of Kenosha; her sister, Jill (Schneeberger) Sprague of Great Falls, Mont.; her brother and sister-in-law, Gary and Karla Schneeberger of Los Angeles; her nephew, USAF Capt. Josh Sprague and his wife, Anna, of Fairbanks, Alaska; her lifelong best friend Todd Tinker and his partner Clyde Polster of Milwaukee; and hundreds of others who came to love and admire her for her bravery, spirit and kindness.
Dale was preceded in death by her beloved mother; her stepfather, Erv Johnson; her brother, Jeff Schneeberger, with whom she shared a birthday and a special bond; and her brother-in-law, Richard Sprague.
A life celebration and memorial remembrance will be held from noon to 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, at the Max A. Sass & Sons Greenridge Chapel, 4747 S. 60th St., Greenfield. All visitors are invited to participate in a balloon release to honor Dales legacy immediately after the service. Burial at St. James Cemetery in Kenosha will be private.
