Obituary for Donna Mae A. Kahlscheuer (Peters)

Donna Mae A. Kahlscheuer (Peters), age 85, passed away on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at The Kathy Hospice in West Bend. She was born on September 17, 1936 to the late Raymond J. and Eleanor M. (Theisen) Peters.

Donna enjoyed gardening, playing cards, spending time with family and friends and various activities with her condo friends. Most of all she found pleasure in cooking and baking for her loved ones. Grandkids held a special place in her heart and provided joy for her.

She graduated from St John’s High School in 1955. She was a telephone operator for Wisconsin Bell Telephone. Later in life she worked at Silverbrook Middle School as everyone’s favorite “lunch lady”.

She met Joseph out at a dance, and they began the dance thru life. They were married on May 3, 1958 and continued their life on the family dairy farm in West Bend. They raised five children and enjoyed numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Holidays and family gatherings were her specialty – no one would walk away hungry, and she always seemed to serve all their favorites.

Donna is survived by her cherished children, Patricia (Curt) Clark, Diane (Robert) Banaszak, Robert (Sarah) Kahlscheuer, MaryJo Eggers, and Joyce (Keith) Schneider, grandchildren, Laura (Bryan) Campion, Kayla (Kevin) Koenig, Kevin (Sam) Banaszak, Kyle (Sarah) Banaszak, Ryan and Isaac Kahlscheuer, Justin, Bailee, Nicole, and Joshua Eggers, Kelsey and Riley Schneider, step-grandchildren, Melissa Bork, and Miranda Clark (friend Justin Donner); great-grandchildren, Sloane Campion, Elizabeth and Wyatt Bork, Harrison Clark, Boaz and Emma Donner, Ryder, Reese and Torin Banaszak, brothers Albert, Wayne (Lynn) Peters. She is further survived by other family and many dear friends.
