Lynne Mehlberg

De Pere - As Lynne Mehlberg's son woke early May 11 to a beautiful sunrise, he knew it was a signal that God would be taking his mom into His arms that day. God also sent a Cardinal to perch outside her loving sister's window to let her know that their Mom had arrived to bring her youngest child to Heaven.

Later that day, with family members who loved her dearly by her side, she became an angel.

The daughter of William and Dawn Schillings, Lynne was born in Rhinelander on September 6, 1963. After graduating from Rhinelander High School, she met and married Rick Mehlberg on October 1, 1988.

"Get up, Dress up and Show up" were the words that guided Lynne's life even after being diagnosed with cancer eight years ago. She would not let the diagnosis define or slow her down as she always enjoyed every day of her life.

She especially enjoyed the times she spent with her husband, family and friends at their cabin on Columbus Lake in Sugar Camp, annual trips to the Gulf Shores, and her days with all of the children and co-workers at Westwood Elementary in West De Pere where she was an administrative assistant.

Showing up for work every day was a joy for Lynne because she was able to spend time with her second family that she loved dearly.

She will be missed every day by her loving husband, Rick, De Pere; a daughter, Meghan, and her husband, Bryan Fuss, Green Bay; son, Sam, and his special friend, Kim MacGregor, Green Bay; and Shelly Drewiske, Green Bay.

Lynne also will be missed by brothers Barry (Kris) Schillings, Kentucky; Larry (Jean) Schillings, New Jersey; Susie Lockart, Oklahoma; Kathy (Larry) Desch, Green Bay; Sherry Schillings, Rhinelander; Robbie Schillings, Rhinelander; brother-in-law Dean Mehlberg, Luxemburg; sister-in-law Lisa Mehlberg, Green Bay; sister-in-law Karee Mehlberg, New Mexico; mother-in-law Judy Cyr, De Pere; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She also is survived by Gryffindor, her fur baby; Trixie the bar cat and five granddogs.

She was preceded in death by her father, William Schillings; mother, Dawn Schillings; brother, Tom Schillings; father-in-law, Roger Mehlberg; and stepfather-in-law, Bob Cyr.

The family would like to give a special thank you to the Bellin Cancer Team and Unity Hospice, Froedert Medical Center in Milwaukee and the Illinois Cancer Specialists in Chicago.

A memorial service will be officiated by Pastor Earl at 1 p.m., Saturday, May 19, at Calvary Lutheran Church, 1301 S Ridge Rd, Green Bay.

Following the service, the family invites friends to celebrate Lynne's life with drinks, horderves, snacks and music at a site to be announced at the service.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund will be established with proceeds going to Westwood Elementary School. Donation boxes will be at the church and at the celebration that follows.
