Elda Kasten, 86
Aug. 17, 1928 -- Feb. 10, 2015
Elda L. Kasten (nee Krause) of Mequon passed away peacefully in the arms of her Lord on Feb. 10, 2015, at the age of 86. Elda was born on Aug. 17, 1928, to Louis and Alma (nee Ehlke) Krause. She spent her childhood growing up in Rockfield. On June 24, 1948, she was united in marriage to Armin G. Kasten of Mequon.
Come late spring, summer and fall, Elda spent the majority of her time outside. She loved to tend to both her flower and vegetable gardens. She especially loved to grow roses. Every Saturday would find her faithfully helping her niece with a vegetable stand at the West Allis Farmers Market and later on, the Cedarburg Farmers Market. Elda grew beautiful red and black raspberries and had quite the following of customers, who awaited the arrival of these berries every year.
Elda enjoyed the socializing at these markets and throughout the years formed many lasting friendships.
Elda also had a love of animals. She would always look forward to her visits with her favorite dog, Ollie. She will be sadly missed by her family and her many friends. A sincere thank you to Dr.
Thomas Shewcyzk for all his care throughout the years and to the many caregivers for their caring support.
Elda was the beloved wife of Armin Kasten, who preceded her in death.
Loving mom of Marlene (Jeff Kaul) Kasten. Dear sister of the late Elroy (the late Myrtle) Krause.
