Mathilde Kaas, 75

Mathilde Kaas, 75, of Thiensville, died Oct. 1, 2011, after a long  
battle with cancer.

She immigrated to Milwaukee in 1957 with her husband, Josef; and  
infant son, Alfred.  Her son, Rick, was born after the family moved  
to Thiensville. She worked as a fur finisher at E.C. Boughton Furs in  
Thiensville and later as a cook at the Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in  
Mequon.

She was a skilled seamstress and knitter. She enjoyed sewing for her  
grandchildren and knitting more than 500 items to donate to local  
maternity wards. Her greatest joy was taking care of children and her  
grandchildren were treasured above all.

She is survived by her husband, Josef; and her sons, Alfred (Beverly)  
and Rick (Vicki). She was the proud and much-loved Oma of Anna, Peter  
and Elliott. She was the dearest friend of many more.

She will be interred at Resurrection Cemetery in Mequon. Honoring her  
wishes, no services will be held.

Schramka-Densow Funeral Home in Thiensville is serving the family.
