Doris H. Sweet, 98

Doris H. Sweet, resident of Iola, died peacefully March 28, 2015, at Cedar Springs Health Center in Cedarburg at the age of 98. Doris passed on naturally free of any illness, but filled with the love of Christ and her unfailing love for her two sons, Tom and Jim; her five grandsons, Chad, Matthew, Adam, Colin and Tucker Sweet and her seven “sweet” great-grandchildren. Doris was the last surviving child of John and Ilse Tills.

Though living by herself for 40 years on County Road G at Hatch Lake, she was never alone nurturing a legacy of love with family and friends.

Active in the Iola Garden Club, she lived its motto: “A garden is where ill thoughts die, and good are born.”

To honor her life, her family will gather for a private celebration and rekindling of memories in late May at her home in Iola, hosted by Jim and Ginger Sweet (phone: 303-525-4515), and again at the home of Tom and Sherry Sweet, W.3747 Shady Lane, Saukville, WI 53080, (phone: 262-962-6936).
