Victoria June St. George Squire 

 

Dec. 2, 1950 - Feb. 15, 2013

 

 

Tori passed away unexpectedly but peacefully, with her husband, love, and soul mate of 30 years, Geno, by her side.

 

A lifelong resident of Wisconsin’s Lake Country area, Tori also adored spending time at her second home in Hobe Sound, Fla. Whether she was north or south, Tori’s furry companions Grizz, Sophie, Divot and Smooch accompanied her.

 

Tori graduated from University Lake School, Hartland, in 1969. She fostered her training in the arts at Monticello Women’s College in Godfrey, Ill.,, before starting her family, of whom she was so proud. A gifted artist, Tori was a painter, doll maker and needlepointer. Her gardens were a canvas brought to life. Tori also was an accomplished equestrian. She found joy in traveling the world with Geno, family, and friends.

 

Tori approached life with a unique passion, creativity and eccentricity that endeared her to all who knew her. She was always a kid at heart. Her grandchildren will especially remember Tori as a champion on the go-kart track, where she was determined to beat them to the finish line.

 

Tori is survived by her husband, Gene “Geno,” and sons Travis Aasen (Laura) and Ryan Aasen (Terri); grandsons Zac, Jake, and Luke Aasen, granddaughter Katherine “Kitten” Aasen, brother Thomas Friedmann, and brother-in-law Gary Squire (Sharon). Also survived by nephews Jason Squire (Mikelle), Troy Squire, Dylan Friedmann and niece Sierra Friedmann. Tori was greeted in heaven by her mother, June Olin Friedmann; father, Baldwin St. George; and sister, Holly Friedmann.

 

Visitation will be held on Feb. 23 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. with a memorial service to celebrate Tori’s life immediately following at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 145 E. Lisbon Road, Oconomowoc.
