Shefka, Laurella "Laurie"  
Laurie passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving family after over a decade long struggle with Alzheimer 's disease on Friday, August 28th, 2015. After meeting on a blind date, Wally and Laurie shared one of those remarkable love stories you only hear about in movies. Laurie had a great love of the outdoors, teaching her family that snakes and bees are nothing to be afraid of. She loved to visit the family cabin in Caygua where she spent hours four-wheeling, gardening, berry picking, frog catching, fishing and most importantly, spending time with her family. As Laurie would always say, "Who has more fun than people?" Laurie loved to garden and always had a bouquet of flowers on the table. Laurie was born on the family homestead in Cayuga, where she will be laid to rest on a lovely Autumn Cayuga day. Laurie is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Walter, and their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren: Kathy & Mark Masse and children David (Lauren) (Anna, Jonathan, Lily), Elizabeth (Shawn) (Jeremiah, Emily, Zechariah, Esther), Matthew (Cat), Adam (Mary), and Rebecca; Susan & Mark Shefka Peeters and children Christopher (Kristi) (Kenzie Mae), Joseph, and Timothy; Debbie & Mark Guckenberger and children Christie (Corey)(Noah, Kayde), Becca (Buck) (Hunter), Zach (Katie), and Aaron; Tom & Barb Shefka and children Sarah (Matt)(Maya, Delaney, Harper), Andy (Lindsay)(Bradyn, Jordyn, Wesley), Lisa (JD)(Ellianna), and Jake (her 58th birthday present); Cindy & Wayne Bergholtz and children Stephanie (Alfredo) and Betsy (Mike); and Jim & Traci Shefka and children Rose and Isaac. The family will also soon be welcoming three more great grandchildren. Laurie also left behind special family friend, Socorro, and neighbors Dave and Kathy. We know that she is so pleased to be reunited with her mother and father, Katie and Hallie Shadduck; step-father, Jack Johnson; and brothers and sisters, Charlie, Earl, Leonard, Bev, and baby sisters Eileen and Pearl; as well as parents-in-law, Anna and Anton Shefka. Walter requests that, in lieu of flowers, all donations be made to Affinity Hospice who took wonderful care of Laurie for the past three and a half years. The family would like to specifically thank Phil, Kristin, Gina, Nancy, Kerri, and special volunteer Barbara, as well as the many other wonderful people of Affinity Hospice; the Care Ministry of St. Therese Parish, especially volunteers Mike & Chris; and the pastor and kind friends of St. Joseph parish, all of whom became valued members of our extended family. The family will receive visitors from 9AM until the time of service (11AM) at St. Therese Catholic Church, 213 E. Wisconsin Ave. Appleton, WI on Thursday September 3rd 2015. Father William Hoffman will officiate. Mom, Thank you for allowing us this extra time to show you just how much we all love you. Thank you for teaching my kids how to love nature and that you are never too old to catch frogs! Look out heaven, here comes the best Cayuga woodchopper/frog catcher! Love You Momma and Grandma! "Laurie, you were never a burden, you were my bride. I love you, Wally."
