Romilda A. Kuhn

Romilda A. Kuhn, age 95, of Chilton, died on Friday, September 14, 2018 at Atrium Post Acute Care in Chilton.  She was born February 20, 1923, daughter of the late Henry & Mary (See) Portmann.  Romilda married William A. Kuhn on May 3, 1950 at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Kloten. 

She was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church, formerly St. Elizabeth Parish where she had volunteered countless hours assisting the church wherever she was able. 

Romilda was blessed with a multitude of God given talents which allowed her to accomplish more for her family and those she loved. With warmth and devotion, Romilda sewed by her own hands the clothes that her children wore.  She tended to a magnificent garden that helped provide food year round for her family and even allotted space for the beauty and majesty of flowers to brighten everyone’s life. 

Romilda enjoyed moments crocheting and embroidering; creating articles of love by her own hands which are sure to be treasured for generations to come. 

Romilda was a lady of few words, using love and endurance provided the gifts of patience and understanding. Romilda took every opportunity to pass along knowledge of never before seen games to her grandchildren, and showcased her baking skills whenever possible; especially Christmas time when her famous Lady Fingers had to be made. 

With a warm and smiling spirit, Romilda will be truly adored and missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Survivors include her children: Delphine (Gerald) Farvour, Joyce Laux and her special friend, Don Mielke; 3 grandchildren: Stephanie (Jarrod) Coulter, Melissa Laux and her special friend, Dan Ritchie, & Douglas Laux, II; 2 great grandchildren: Kade & Madelyn Coulter; her siblings: Eileen Moehn & Andrew Portmann; and a sister in-law: Mary Portmann.  She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
