Franziska Porter

May 12, 1927 – Oct. 17, 2013

Franziska Porter of Pewaukee peacefully passed away Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013. She was born on May 12, 1927, in Innsbruck, Austria.

She was the beloved mother of Monika (Peter) Tschorn, Patricia (Neil) Pasbrig, Debra S. McKune, and John (Jeanne) Porter; loving grandmother of Deanna, Katherine, Jennifer and Allen; dearest great-grandmother of Stephanie, Brittany, Jordan and Jacob; and adoring great-greatgrandmother of Roman. She is further survived by her two brothers and one sister in Innsbruck, Austria, as well as other loving relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband Herman; granddaughter, Jacoqueline; and her loving companion, “Bud.”

Mom had a great sense of humor and truly enjoyed life. She endured many hardships, loved to travel, crochet, read and play games. We will miss her smile and her wisdom.

A private memorial will be held at a later time.
