Elizabeth “Betty” Errard (nee Kaul) of Cedarburg, met the Lord on Friday, June 5, 2009, at the are of 88.
She was the beloved wife of 50 years to Francis Errard, who preceded her in death; the loving mother of Greg (LeAnne) Errard; the proud grandma of Ryan and Eric Errard; the dear sister of Ilma Kraatz, Eleanore Maul, Robert Kaul, Arnold (Darlene) Kaul and Marlene Kraemer; and the sister-in-law of Arline Kaul and Don Kalishek. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by siblings, Fritz Kaul and Annette Wirth Kalishek.
Betty was born on Aug. 23, 1920 to Arnold and Gertrude (nee Wulff) Kaul, who preceded her in death, in the town of Grafton and remained a lifelong resident of Ozaukee County. She was a 50-year member of First Immanuel Lutheran Church in Cedarburg and participated in various guilds during those years. She was an active member of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, University of Wisconsin-Extension Homemakers, Investment Club and attended UW College Days in Madison for many years. Her interests were many, including genealogy, sewing, golf and playing the organ. She was an avid reader and an excellent cook with an interest in German heritage cuisine. Betty was very independent and even though she became weak in body, she was very strong in her will and belief in God. She loved her family and her grandsons were the light of her life. She is now at peace.
