St. Louis, Sharon Lee
Sharon Lee St. Louis, 74 of Fremont, died Friday May 2, 2014 at Riverside Medical Center, Waupaca. She was born in Appleton, November 7, 1939, daughter of the late Gordon and Luella Krueger. Sharon married Byron St. Louis on September 27, 1958.
Sharon was a very spiritual person, who believed and trusted in God. She was a very artistic and creative person, she loved to do crafts, and she could sew anything. Sharon always had a sweet tooth, and loved to try different foods. She enjoyed her trips to the casino; she said that was her entertainment. She loved watching all the birds that came to her feeders, as well as the other little critters that hung out in her yard. Her greatest joy in life was her family. Her seven children were her life, and she always worried about each one of them, which kept her up at night, consequently she never slept through the night. As parents we now understand that. Sharon also very much enjoyed her time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; she was always there to babysit when needed.
Sharon is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, Byron; her seven children, Carrie (Mark) Kools, Appleton, Michael (Kelly), Fremont, Terri (Paul) Meiselwitz, Appleton, Todd (Lisa), Appleton, Tammy (Chip) Kerscher, Fremont, Steven, Madison, and David (Tiffany), Appleton; 14 grandchildren, Ryan Kools (fiancée, Danielle Storm), Madison, Ben Kools, Minneapolis, MN; Stacy (Jon) Clark, Greenville, Kassie (Troy) Machovsky, Watertown, NY; Joshua St. Louis, Fremont, Katie (Mike) Niemuth, Appleton, Kyle Garrigan, Appleton, Zack Meiselwitz, Appleton, Jeremy Bottine, Appleton, Timothy Wayne (Heather) Bottine, Kaukauna, Emilee (Trever) Strong, NC; Michael Kerscher, Fremont, Madilynn St. Louis, Appleton, and Lilly St. Louis, Appleton; six great-grandchildren, with two more due this year; Sharon is further survived by a sister, Beverly Van Rooy, Appleton; and several cousins, nieces and nephews. She was further preceded in death by a brother, Charles Krueger; and her father and mother-in-law, Henry and Rosalie St. Louis.
In keeping with Sharon's wishes, a private family service will be held.
Sharon's family would like to extend a very special thank you to all of her doctors and nurses who cared for Sharon at Appleton Medical center, Crystal River Rehabilitation Facility, Waupaca, and Riverside Medical Center, Waupaca, for all of their care and compassion.
Sharon endured more sickness and health issues than any one person should have in a lifetime. She always had a positive attitude, never complained even toward the end when everything was going against her. "We are going to miss your daily or weekly phone calls to check in with each of us, and your silly family games; we love you and will miss you so much".
