Lomira - Sharon Ann "Sherry" Kohli (nee Kietzer), 77, of Lomira, was called home to be with her Lord on Friday, February 5, 2021, at St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac.
Sherry was the daughter of the late Lester and Bernice (née Beitz) Kietzer, born July 27, 1943, in Fond du Lac, WI. Valedictorian of the Lomira High School class of 1961, Sherry went on to U. W. Oshkosh for two years. On March 15, 1964, she married her high school sweetheart Alfred "Al" Kohli Jr. at St. John's Lutheran Church in Lomira. A lifelong student of Ornithology, she was always on the lookout for special birds, particularly Cardinals. An avid game player she enjoyed bridge, Sheepshead, the casinos, and no puzzle was too complex for her. Always cheering on the Wisconsin Badgers, The Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers, she never missed a game. Reading was Sherry's special joy as well as cooking and baking the best apple pies and cookies. Sherry and Al visited all 50 states including Washington DC and traveled many times to Louisiana to visit her granddaughter. Sherry was a lifelong member of the St. John's Lutheran Church in Lomira and a member of The Friends of the Library.
Left behind to cherish Sherry's memory are her husband, Al; three children Terryl "Terry" Hopper of Springfield, LA, Steven "Steve" Kohli of Green Bay, and Kristine "Kris" (John) Rigotti of Lomira; a granddaughter, Danielle Hopper; her brother Michael "Mike" (Laurene "Red"); and two sisters-in-law, Betty (Mike)Schraufnagel and Jane Kietzer; two brothers-in-law, Morris Rose and John (Theora "Teddy") Kohli, and countless friends and relatives.
In addition to her parents, Sherry was preceded in death by her son, Bryan "Beezer" Kohli; a son-in-law Nelson Hopper Jr.; another brother, Robert "Bob" Kietzer, and sister, Barbara Rose.
