Louise K. Adler

September 28, 2011

Louise K. Adler, 88, of 308 N. Central Ave., died September 28, 2011, at Ministry St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield after suffering a heart attack.

A  Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:30 a.m. Monday, October 3, 2011, at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church with Father Donald Meuret celebrating the Mass. Visitation will be held prior to the service beginning at 10:30 a.m. at church.

Mrs. Adler was born February 13, 1923, in Athens, Wisconsin to John and Frances (Nowicki) Nowacki.  She married Donald L. Adler on May 3, 1948, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Marshfield.

She attended grade schools in Athens and in Marshfield graduating from McKinley High School in Marshfield in 1942. After high school she worked as a telephone operator in Chicago, IL and Milwaukee, WI, returning to Marshfield at the time of her marriage.

As a young girl, Louise was seriously injured in an accident that required many months of hospitalization in Chicago and left her partially disabled.  Despite her disability she raised her family of three sons, who fondly caller her “Auntie” and took special care of her “Donnie”.  She also worked at the Weinbrenner Shoe Factory from the mid-1960’s until her retirement in 1980. She was a gifted artist creating many sculptures and paintings. She was also a talented seamstress and made numerous garments and home accessories. She was a member of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church and was active in the Parish Council of Catholic Women for many years.

The family is going to greatly miss her smile, laughter, and hugs & kisses.   Louise will always be remembered  as  a very grateful person  to anyone that helped her.

In recent years, she suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. Her husband provided home care to her until his death two months ago. Since that time her son, Gordon, has lovingly provided home care to her. Throughout this period, though Alzheimer’s took its toll, she remained of kind temperament.

Surviving Mrs. Adler are three sons, Gordon Adler of Marshfield, Gary (Carol) Adler of Pittsville, and Gregory Adler (Caryn Ashbeck) of Pittsville; and two grandchildren, Ashley Adler of Marshfield and Christopher Adler of Pittsville.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Donald; her parents; three brothers, Al, James and Danny; and three sisters, Ruthie Jeziorski, Dorothy Vitucci and Julia Nowacki.

Chippewa Valley Cremation Services is serving the family.
