Emilie Ann (Fairchild) Lutz

Oct. 18, 1917 Oct. 14, 2014

Emilie Ann (Fairchild) Lutz passed from this life on October 14, 2014, four days before her 97th birthday, in the manner in which she lived in dignity.

Emilie has gone to join her beloved husband, Ray, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her parents, her brother and her sister.

She is survived by her children: Wendy (Richard) Tolzmann, Melissa (Greg) Freiberg and Randall Lutz; her grandchildren: Amanda (Drew) Gottheardt, Chloe (Brett) Surinak, Lucas (Kristin) Freiberg, Kimberly Boeder and Shalynn (Adam) Frank; her great-grandchildren: Quinn, Tristan, Elliott, Spenser, Kennedy, Liliana, Kaelynn and Myles; and sisters-in-law: Elaine Fiedler and Jean Lutz-Sternlieb. She was a loving wife, mom, Gma and G.G. to all.

Emilie was born to James and Gertrude Fairchild on October 18, 1917, in La Crosse. She most recently resided at the Shorehaven Tower in Oconomowoc. Born a Quaker, she lived her life in gentleness and selflessness. She was a lady, a former Badger, and most of all a Christian who had a life-long romance with words and knowledge. She will be missed by many.

Memorials are suggested to AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc or to the American Cancer Society.
