Alice J. Papke, 83
Alice J. Papke went home to heaven on Aug. 25, 2010, at the age of 83.
Alice was born on June 5, 1927, in Jamestown, N.Y. She has three beautiful children who are living, Dave Papke, Arlene Meehan and Ruth Allard, and one daughter, Barbara Knapmiller, who passed away in 2002. Steve Knapmiller, Barbara’s former husband, was also a "son" to Alice. She also has a brother, John Johnson, and a sister, Ruth Bartelt.
Alice died at home after a three-month battle with advanced ovarian cancer.
She was a graduate of the Chicago Institute of Art and married Edward Papke, who preceded her in death.
Alice will be forever in our hearts. Her sweet contentment and peaceful disposition, along with her beautiful rose garden on Cleveland Street in Cedarburg will always be an inspiration to all who were blessed to know her.
A private service was held in her garden at home on Aug. 28. Memorials may be sent to the American Cancer Society.
Mueller Funeral Home in Cedarburg is serving the family.
