    Wisneski, Alrita A. Alrita Wisneski, 80, Freedom, passed away on Saturday, June 10, 2006 at Cherry Meadows Hospice. Alrita was born in Wrightstown on Aug. 9, 1925, daughter of the late Arnold and Annie (Gerrits) Van Dyke. On Oct. 17, 1946, she married John Wisneski at St. Paul Catholic Church in Wrightstown; he survives. The couple would have celebrated sixty wonderful years together this October. Alrita was a stay-at-home mom who enjoyed her role as mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She enjoyed square dancing, playing cards with friends, traveling to many far away places, working crossword puzzles, reading, and working in her flower garden. Her faith was very important to her, as well as the many special family gatherings with those she loved — she always felt so very blessed to have such a loving family. In addition to her parents, all seven of her brothers and sisters, as well as Alrita and John, were blessed to have all celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversaries. For years, she and her husband owned and operated the Nursery Tree Farm near Freedom, and enjoyed helping their customers beautify their homes and yards. Alrita was a member of St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Freedom for 50 years, as well as being a member of the Christian Mother's Society, and the church choir. She was also a member of Freedom Post #7692 of the V.F. W. Auxiliary.

    Alrita was preceded in death by her parents; a granddaughter, Katie Jo on April 17, 1982; brothers, Robert Van Dyke, Clarence Van Dyke, Richard (Esther) Van Dyke; sisters, Catherine (August) Meulemans, Clara (Martin) Nieling, and Leona (John) VandeLeygraaf; four sisters-in-law, Carol Wisneski, Emily (Jack) Konapacky, Helen Wolf, and Lucille (Harry) Dunn; and five brothers-in-law, Clarence Wisneski, Walter (Ann) Wisneski, Ed (Tootie) Wisneski, Ervin (Eva) Wisneski, and Donald Wisneski.

    The funeral liturgy will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14, 2006, at St. Nicholas Catholic Church N4088 County Trunk E, Kaukauna with Fr. John Schuetze officiating. Visitation will be on Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Fargo Funeral Home, with a prayer service at 7 p.m. There will also be visitation at the church on Wednesday from 10 a.m. until the time of services.

    The family would like to thank Dr. Robert Belgam, Dr. John Swanson, Mary Jo, and the entire staff at Fox Valley Hematology and Oncology for their compassion and understanding. The family would also like to thank the staff at Cherry Meadows.

    The beautiful memories of our mother's love will be a comfort to us through all the days ahead.

    Love, your children and grandchildren
