Mary Elizabeth Porth Notice

...from her husband Guy Porth, "Mary died suddenly and unexpectedly of a pulmonary embolism on May 12, 2016."

Porth, Mary Elizabeth (Nee Kramer ), of Reedsburg, formerly of Milwaukee, died of a pulmonary embolism Thursday, May 12, 2016, at the young age of 65. Called home by her Maker to join her daughter, Gwen Patricia; her parents Harry J. and Elizabeth (Ellwanger) Kramer; siblings Audrey and Harry G. (and his wife JoAnn). Survived by her husband of 45 years, Guy; daughter Becci/Rebecca (Tony) Gaglione; Guy's daughter Marsha (Dave) Voeltner; nieces Dr. June (Mike) Rondinelli and Belinda Kramer. Super Granny of Marcus and Matthew Gaglione and Evan Voeltner. Further survived by lots of loving cousins (hers and Guy's) and dozens of friends. Mary was a graduate of Washington High School. Guy and Mary had served a 12-month full-time mission in Tucson, AZ for their church and were serving a Church Service Mission in Richland Center, WI. There is a hole in the world that her passing leaves. Mary's cheerful smile, happy heart, and laughter will be missed by all. The family extends their appreciation for the care and compassion received from the ER Staff at Aurora West Allis Medical Center. Come join her family in a celebration of life on Friday, May 20th at the Church of Jesus of Latter-Day Saints chapel, 755 Woelfel Rd., Brookfield, WI. The memorial service will begin at noon with the family greeting visitors 11-12 and 1-2. In lieu flowers, please donate to People Helping People - or help end world hunger at donating a box of bees, a goat or a flock of ducks.
