Sedonia's life of serving our Lord was an example for many. We certainly will miss her earthly presence. God's peace be with the family. WINGS-Women IN God's Service, Peace Lutheran Church, Beaver Dam.

I am sorry to hear about Sidonia's passing. My husband and I were friends of Sidonia and Reuben. I am Randi'Jean's other Gramdma. We went out to eat and shop alot when they lived in Dayton. We stayed in touch over the years with hours of phone conversations, most recently in November. We both had our wings clipped by old age, but still retained a good sense of humor. We had several laughs and good times over the years. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends and my deepest Sympathy. God Bless You!

Terry and family, I can''t say we knew your Mom that well, except for the conversations we would have with Terry. We know how much he loved her. Terrry said she was a Bunkoske, and in my own way I blundered and when I was introduced to her I said it was so nice meeting you, Mrs. Bunkoske!! Therefore, through the years when Terry would leave the house, I would ask him to say HI to Mrs. "B." She will be dearly missed by you all, but memories of her last days will fade and you will remember more of the fun times you all had with her.

To all my cousins...you have my deepest sympathy, it is so hard saying good-bye to our mom''s and dad''s. I still and always will miss my mom, and now my dad, so much. I guess I never thought the time would really come when we would have had to say good-bye to them. Your mom did an awesome job raising a big family. I loved growing up knowing that we all would be together practically every weekend, at one of the Aunt''s & Uncle''s places, it was always so much fun getting into trouble with you all, with the exception of Terry & Kim, you were too little. We did have fun putting Terry in a big sheet and seeing how high we could plunge him in the air with the sheet, and then catch him in that same sheet...aren''t you glad we didn''t miss Terry? Heehee...we wouldn''t have, and your mom was NOT happy when she saw that we were dong that. Your mom and dad were so much fun to be around, your dad was always saying something funny, and your mom would always laugh. That''s how I remember your mom & dad. I know my parents had so much fun going out with your parents. I always loved listening to the stories my mom would tell about what the 4 of them used to do. I pray they all are up in Heaven together, all at peace now, no more suffering, praising and worshiping our mighty God and Savior. I know when I''m having a hard time with missing my dad, or mom, I turn to Christ for strength, knowing He is there for us is so comforting, knowing that there is a Heaven, is so awesome. We may miss the people in our lives that leave before we do, but we can look forward to being with them again, for eternity. I know that talking about your mom, telling the stories and memories of the past will help, it really does. Hang close to each other, you are so blessed to have a big family. I loved your mom, she is a very happy memory of my childhood. May God bless all of you and comfort you during this hard time. Love Mary

Mom, I have been so,unbelievably in space and can not believe this has happened. This is a big one for me.......and I know from all our conversations throughout the years you have given me great guidance to help me go on.........I wish I had the proper and decent words to write but, I am so, empty inside.........and that means one big thing to me!? God granted me one unbelievable Mother to guide me, to encourage me, to support me and raised me with God so, I know that you are Gods child and I too wait till we all rejoice again one day in our real HOME, "HEAVEN!" Thanks for being one of the BEST here on earth to so.......many! God Bless you, Mom and my thanks for sharing your treasures in life with me.....

Wishing all the family my deepest condolence on the loss of your mother, grandmother and great-grand mother. I remember living next door to them for a short while in Iron Ridge when I was growing up. Also working with your mother for many years before she got transfered to work in the Iron Ridge location of ITW. She always had a smile on her face and something good to say of everyone. She will be missed by all left behind but welcomed into the lords home with loving arms.

We give our condolences to all of the Zirbel family. Marlene was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who was deeply loved by many and she will be missed. We hope that she has found peace in Heaven with her husband and all of her loved ones who have passed on before her. We regret that we are unable to make the journey from Colorado to pay our respects in person to such a wonderful woman. You are all in our thoughts! Love, Heather Berens, Anthony, and Dominic Norman

Aunt Marlene, you will be deeply missed. I remember coming over so many times with dad and mom, when we were younger and you 4 would be sitting around the kitchen table playing sheepshead. Now you can sit down at the heavenly table with uncle Donny, dad and mom and play sheepshead again. Rest in peace Aunt Marlene. Love, Steven. Love and thoughts are with you Jr, Linda, Dale, Larry, Lois, Diane, Terry, and Kim.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
