Vivian (Kamps) Meinert, took her last breath on earth and first breath with her Savior on Tuesday, March 26, 2013. All of her children were present during her passing into eternal life.
Vivian was a selfless woman who always tried to show love by giving of herself in some way, through a kind word or sharing of a gift. She was always looking for ways to brighten someone's day. Vivian was very involved in the community. She was a member of the Heart of the Valley, VFW, American Legion, Kaukauna Community Hospital Auxiliary and St Mary's Altar Society. She also enjoyed traveling, especially to Fish Creek.
She is survived by her four children, Noreen (Kern) Brogan, Dennis Meinert, Debbie (Bob) Moore and Mary (Rus) Maddox; and her brother Dean (Ginny) Kamps. She is further survived by her grandchildren Kristin (Mike) Baranski, Nathan (Nicole) Brogan, Lonnie (Chad) Baldauf, Shelly (Tony) Verhasselt, Raven (Adam) Marchuk, Meredith (Jon) Fraser, Greg (Bridget Keaty) Moore, Alex Maddox, Jordan Maddox and Morgan Maddox, as well as 15 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Norman, her parents Herman and Hazel Kamps, her sisters Helen Sanders and Mary Jane Kamps and her great grandson Chase Baldauf.
The funeral liturgy to celebrate Vivian's life will be at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at ST KATHARINE DREXEL PARISH, ST MARY CHURCH ( 119 W Seventh St) with Father Jerry Pastors officiating.
