Edith Mae Wetzel
She was born February 12, 1925 in Columbia County, Wisconsin to Lee and Merna (née Dunning). She married Milton Albert Wetzel on August 5, 1947.
Went to her heavenly home on March 4th, 2019.
Ede is how she'd sign her name when corresponding with friends.
She did an awesome job as a wife to Milton, "Bud", and as a mother raising six children on a farm in York Center, Wisconsin. When farming life came to an end, she and Bud moved to Fort Collins, Colorado before coming back to Wisconsin and lived in DeForest before settling in Sun Prairie.
Raising her own children wasn't enough for this special lady. Throughout these travels Ede was always sought out as a person to watch children. There are many families that have her to thank for the care she gave.
She is survived by four children, Polly Carter (Lowell) Madison; Dean Wetzel, Sun Prairie; Trudy Goderstad (Paul) of Green Bay; and Barb Wetzel, Middleton; and daughter-in-law Katie Ripp. Ede had six grandchildren, Thomas Carter (Jen) Milwaukee; Tara Johnston (Haydn) of Sydney, Australia; Cailin Fournier (Chris) Dane; Megan (Jon Bucholz) Wetzel, Portage; Anders (fiancé Brittany Lischka) Goderstad and Torin (Cherie) Goderstad, Green Bay. Ede had six great grandchildren.
She is also survived by one sister, Ila "Dolly" Sauer, Fall River, Wisconsin.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Milton "Bud", sons Randal and Milton, parents Lee and Merna (née Dunning)Brace, and brothers Leroy and Charles Brace.
