March 10, 1951 ó Jan. 2, 2016
Ann Marie Gundrum (nee Graff), 64, of the town of Addison passed away peacefully Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016.
She was born March 10, 1951, to Casper and Frances (nee Peters) Graff. Ann grew up on a farm with her family and then she met a farmer of her own. Donald and Ann were united in marriage Nov. 7, 1981, at St. Anthony Catholic Church.
She worked at Regal Ware in Kewaskum for 12 years. Together, Don and Ann ran their family farm and raised two wonderful daughters, Julie and Elaine. Ann was a loving wife and mother. She enjoyed making lunches for her husband during busy fieldwork days, gardening, feeding the newborn calves, listening to the Milwaukee Brewers games on the radio, and cooking and baking. Her smile was the biggest when she spent time with her family and her grandchildren, Harrison and Brooklyn Ann. She loved snuggling with them and giving them kisses.
She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Donald; daughters, Julie (Matthew) Kling of Hartford and Elaine (Christian) Langreck of Hartford; and grandchildren, Harrison Langreck and Brooklyn Kling. She is also survived by her sister, Rita (Steve) Sawyer; brother, James (Ruth) Graff; mother-in-law, Agnes Gundrum; sister-in-law, Rita (Jerry) Bingen; and brother-in-law, Allen (Lori) Gundrum. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Ann is preceded in death by her parents; father-in-law, Mathias Gundrum; brother, John Graff; and her brother-in-law, Richard Gundrum.
