Donna M Boesch

Donna M Boesch, 82, of Chilton, passed away Monday, March 21, 2016 at her home. Donna was born May 16, 1933 in Green Bay, daughter of the late Wilmer & Lillian (Schuler) Huebner. She was a graduate of Brillion High School, class of 1950. On October 4, 1952, Donna married Carl Boesch, Jr. at Zion United Methodist Church in Forest Junction.

In her free time, Donna enjoyed clipping pictures, articles, and recipes from the newspapers, baking the best chocolate cakes, and playing cards with her grandson, James. It was also never rare to see her exquisite antiques in the fair or Donna tying her bread bags in knots when sending baked goods home with anyone. What brought her the greatest joy, however, was spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Donna will always be remembered for her intuitive memory of individuals birthdays and anniversaries, but most of all for her kind and gentle spirit.
