She is also survived by her sisters Marie Multauf, Isabelle (Robert) Rademan, Bernadine Bauer; her brother Joseph (Dorothy) Becker; her sister-in-law Bona Dea Becker; and many much loved godchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.

Preceding her in death are her brothers Ray (Lilly) Becker, Tony (Rose) Becker, Walter Becker, Gene (Mary) Becker, Bernard Becker; brothers-in-law Gene Multauf and Ronald Bauer; and grandson Michael Evenson.

A funeral mass will be held at 12 noon on Tuesday at St. James Catholic Church (830 County Highway NN east, Mukwonago). Friends may visit the church on Tuesday from 10 a.m. until the time of the mass. Final rest will be at St. Peter Catholic Cemetery in East Troy.
