Holly L. Gassner (nee Scadden), 59, of West Bend passed away on
Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
On Dec. 24, 1959, Holly was born in Elkhorn, to Willis and Joyce Scadden
and later grew up, graduating in Hartford. She was united in matrimony
to Robert Gassner on March 24, 1984, at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic
Church, West Bend. Holly possessed a community- focused spirit with her
involvement in various activities to include, but not limited to: her
church (St. Frances Cabrini, and most recently St. Mary Immaculate
Conception Parish), Moose Lodge, West Bend High School Band and Athletic
Department, Masonic Lodge activities and both Boy and Girl Scouts, as
well as the activities that her (grand)children participated in. Her
most prominent characteristics were her genuine compassion for others
and natural ability to connect with people, making them feel like
family. Above all, Holly loved the time she spent with her children,
especially her grandson, Jared.
Those left behind to cherish her memory include her husband, Robert;
beloved children, Justin and Janel Gassner; grandson, Jared Gassner-York;
mother, Joyce Scadden; sister, Heidi (Rex) Miller; brothers-in-law

Ali, August, and Aubre Miller. She was preceded in death by Willis
Scadden (father), and Robert and Catherine (Anna) Gassner (parents-inlaw).
