On Saturday, January 30, 2010 we lost a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Elaine Elva Wilde was born on December 4, 1929 to August and Elva (Marquardt) Klitzke in Verona Township.
On June 18, 1947 she married her soulmate Clinton Duane Wilde at the Swiss United Church of Christ in New Glarus.
Together they raised four children; Gary (Randa) Wilde, Mukwonago, Sherry Wilde, New Glarus, Bob (Connie) Wilde, New Glarus, and Wanda (Allan) Legler, Belleville.
During their 62 years of marriage, they took on many projects together and traveled the world.
Elaine's hobbies were ceramics, reading, and needlepoint. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, Chris (Stacey) Wilde, Dia (Shane) Sparby, Bonnie (Mike) Sigman, Amy Davey, Aaron (Sherri) Wilde, Brooke (Joe) Skidmore, Tara Wilde, Brandon Legler, Clinton Legler, Chase (Haley) Legler, and her twelve great-grandchildren.
She is further survived by her siblings Elnora Pulver, Jeanette Legler, Joanne (Ken) Butts, and Roy (Darlene) Klitzke.
She was greeted at Heaven's door by those who preceded her in death; her parents; her son, Bob; brothers David, August, Lester, Clarence, Lawrence, and George; sisters Elvera Pernot and Evelyn Fosso.
She will be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, a caring and compassionate mother, and a gentle and kind grandma. We love you and we miss you!
At Elaine's request a private family gathering will be held. The family would like to thank the staff of hospice for their compassionate care.
