April 25, 1921 Ė Sept. 21, 2011
Kathleen Bedell Comstock Pfister of Waukesha entered eternal peace Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011, at Angels-Grace Hospice in Oconomowoc at the age of 90. She was born April 25, 1921, in Albany, N.Y., the daughter of Leon David and Esther Mae (nee Bedell) Comstock.
She will be sadly missed by her daughters, Jennifer Pfister of Waukesha and Merrilee P. Riley of Minneapolis, Minn.; her daughter-in-law, Linda Guhr Pfister of Muskego; her son, Harold F. Pfister III, also of Waukesha; as well as by her seven grandchildren, Curran David Riley, Joanna Pfister Wachula, Kathleen Frances Riley, Andrew Carl Pfister, Brennan Joseph Riley, Erin Riley Gates and Adam Jacob Pfister and their families. She is further survived by a blessedly growing number of perfectly angelic great-grandchildren, several relatives-in-law, nieces and nephews, and special, faithful friends, including her heaven-sent caregivers, Erica Hyland, Mercedes Rawson, Mildred Pittman and Caledonia McCarry.
Kathleen was preceded in death by her esteemed brother, Dr. Leon David Comstock Jr. of Dowagiac, Mich., in 1971; her adoring husband of 53 years, Harold F. Pfister Jr. in 1995; and by her heroic son, Carl Eugene Pfister II of Muskego in 2008.
A service of remembrances, prayers and music for friends in the Waukesha area is being planned for a date to be announced, followed by a family committal ceremony at Memorial Park in Skokie, Ill.
If desired, memorial offerings in Kathleenís memory to either Angels-Grace Hospice, W359-N7430 Brown St., Oconomowoc, WI 53066; or St. Paulís Evangelical Lutheran Church, S66-W14325 Janesville Road, Muskego, WI 53150-2607, would be thoughtful and appropriate.
