Angeline A. Reimer, 100

Angeline A. "Dolly" Reimer, nee Herbst, 100, of Kewaskum, formerly of Barton, died on Monday, Dec. 19, 2011 at Kettle Moraine Gardens. She was born on March 9, 1911 in Barton to the late John and Matilda (nee Kircher) Herbst.

Following her marriage to Paul J. Reimer on April 24, 1929 at Holy Angels Church, the couple settled in the Barton area. Paul predeceased June 11, 1983.

Over the years, Dolly worked different jobs, including at Amily Leather Products, Frank’s Meat Market and also cared for the children of many area families. Her close relationship with the families helped to have her named "Grandma Dolly." She unofficially adopted many of the children, and has maintained close ties throughout her long life.

She was a member of St. Mary Parish, the Catholic Order of Foresters and the Good Samaritan Guild.

Survivors include a niece-in-law Marilyn Wagner of West Bend, a great-nephew Tom (Laurie) Wagner of West Bend; special friends Debra (Syl) Schoofs of Green Bay, Lee Roehrdanz of Tiger, Ore. and Joyce (Harry) Wyant of Phelps; other relatives and friends.
