    Arts, Iline Margaret nee School
    Iline Margaret School Arts, Little Chute, age 91, died peacefully surrounded by her family, the evening of November 30, 2008, at the home of her daughter, Nancy, where she had resided the last two years. She went to her Lord, holding the hand of her beloved sister, Alyce, with whom she shared a special bond. Iline was born to the late George and Minnie (Klaishuis) School in Freedom, WI, on August 7, 1917; she was the fifth of nine children. She married James H. Arts on June 24, 1941, at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church in Little Chute. He preceded her in death April 2, 1997, after sharing 55 years of marriage. Iline lived and worked in Neenah/Menasha and Chicago in her younger years, but spent her married life residing in Little Chute. She enjoyed travel to many parts of the U.S. and Mexico, however all by car or train of course, as she would not fly! She was an excellent seamstress, sewing many items of clothing for her daughters, granddaughters, family and friends. She loved to cook and bake, being especially known for her apple pies and chocolate chip cookies. She enjoyed a good game of sheepshead, Liverpool rummy, cribbage and the "occasional" jaunt to the casino. She also enjoyed spending time at the cottage in Door County with family and friends, especially her grandchildren. Iline liked to play golf and she and Jim were members of Fox Valley Golf Course for many years. She also enjoyed bowling in a couples league with Jim, and a Tuesday morning ladies league at Village Lanes once Jim became ill. One of Iline's special life events was a surprise 90th birthday party organized by her daughters, and was a true celebration of her life and friendships. Iline was an active member of her church community at St. John and shared a deep faith in her Lord, which sustained her as she struggled with her declining health and lack of mobility in recent months. She was a member of the St. Elizabeth Society and the Third Order of St. Francis.
    Iline is survived by her three daughters: Nancy Lee Arts, Little Chute; Cynthia (Mark B.) (Arts) Nelezen, Oshkosh; and Judy (John P.) (Kerrigan) Vanden Bosch, Seymour; a sister, Alyce Kons, Kaukauna; a sister-in-law, Beverly School ; and Delores Murphy, a special friend and step-sister. She influenced the lives of her six grandchildren: Abigail Iline Nelezen, Oshkosh; Karen (Ben) Muenster, Seymour; Vicki Vanden Bosch, Green Bay; Amy (David) Renon, Greenleaf; Todd (Lynn) Vanden Bosch, Freedom; eight great grandchildren: Chelsey, Brittney, Dustin and Dylan Muenster; Kaitlyn and Jennifer Renon; Zachery and Kyle Vanden Bosch. She is further survived by many nieces, nephews and god children, whom she cared for deeply.
    Iline was preceeded in death by her parents; seven of her siblings and their spouses: Bernice (Anton) Meulemans, Loretta (William) Gerrits, Marie (Herbert) Anderson, Alois (Irene), Melvin, and Richard (Carol) School, and infant brother Billy; brother-in-law, Raymond Kons; sister-in-law, Sister Helen Arts, O.P.; and a grandson, Paul Vanden Bosch.
    Iline was a loving wife, mother and grandmother; family was the most important thing in her life, and this was very evident Thanksgiving weekend as family and friends gathered together to share a last moment with her. The house was full of laughter, remembrances, cherished photos shared, story telling and of course food for the visitors, who came to lend support and prayer.
    Visitation will begin at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, December 4, 2008, at St. JOHN NEPOMUCENE CATHOLIC CHURCH (323 S. Pine St., Little Chute) until the time of the Funeral Mass at 5:00 p.m. The Rev. James Hablewitz will officiate with Deacon Vincent De Groot concelebrating. In keeping with Iline's wishes, in lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established in her memory for parochial education, which she actively supported.
    The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to ThedaCare Hospice for their compassionate care; in particular her hospice nurses Mary and Judy; also to her physician, Dr. Carolyn Blanc. Mom's life was enriched by her special friend of 45 + years and our family "guardian angel", Lorayne Evers, who lovingly cared for Mom's every need.
