Elaine A. Dzemske, 84
Aug. 15, 1931 — June 29, 2016

Elaine A. Dzemske (nee Jeske), 84, of West Bend, entered eternal life Wednesday, June 29, 2016, at The Kathy Hospice in West Bend.

She was born Aug. 15, 1931, to the late Erwin and Alyce (nee Fischer) Jeske in Milwaukee. On July 23, 1950, she was united in marriage to Edward Dzemske Sr. in Milwaukee. In 1961 they moved to West Bend where they raised their nine children. Family came first — no matter how busy Elaine was, she always made time to listen. She had a big heart, and was a very caring and loving person. Elaine was the kind of person that could talk to anyone; she considered everybody she met a friend and touched so many lives. She loved brightening the days of family and friends with her special cards that she spent countless hours creating. She had a love for music that she passed on to her entire family. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Elaine left this world a better place.

Those Elaine leaves behind to cherish her memory include her eight children, Edward Dzemske Jr., Todd (Jessica) Dzemske, Mark (Iris) Dzemske, Rick Dzemske, Diane (Dennis) Hambly, Dawn (Dale) Klumb, Candice (Salvador) Ameneyro and Tracy (Keith) Kruse; 14 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and many other relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Edward Dzemske Sr., and son, Dennis Dzemske.

A private family service in remembrance of Elaine will be held.

The family would like to thank the Rev. Paul Reede of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Dr. Mosley, Dr. Smale, nurses and staff at The Kathy Hospice, and the Myrhum-Patten Funeral Home for all their help and care.

The Myrhum Patten Miller & Kietzer Funeral Homes have been entrusted with Elaine’s arrangements. Additional information and guestbook may be found at www.myrhum-patten.com.
