You have my deepest condolences for your loss of Merlene. Death is truly an enemy of all of us and always comes to soon. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah knows the pain we feel and promises a beautiful resurrection soon to come. That promise can be found in the Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 and verses 3 and 4.

Rest in peace my dear friend, we really had some good times together at the factory and here in kenosha, so long my friend.

We will miss your warm smile up at the Lake Merlene, but I know a part of you will always be there with us. You were the "Kempster Historian", having grown up in the area, you helped us grow to love the area as well. You were always a friend to our family and will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Surely you rejoice this very day, and I look forward to the day we meet again! Becky and Mike Faehling and family

CandleRIP Merlene. I'll never forget the first time I met you. You were so excited for me to have my baby. You took Amy under your wing soon as you held her for the very first time. You named her buttons. You were always good to me whenever I was around, and I found you to be a very friend. You always had a big heart. Prayers to the family for their loss.

RIP Merlene. I’m so grateful God have us the opportunity to reconnect. I’m just sorry we never got to play one last game of cards.
