Hefle, Susan L. "Sue"
LINCOLN, NEB. - Susan L. "Sue" Hefle, age 46, of Lincoln, Neb., died Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2006. Sue was born in Milwaukee, to Louis and Nancy (Woods) Hefle. Sue was an Associate Professor of Food Science and Technology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and co-director of the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FARRP). Sue was author or co-author of more than 130 peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals and many book chapters. In addition, she held two patents for analytical methods for aflatoxin. She served on numerous editorial boards, as a reviewer for a dozen scientific journals, and on grant-review boards for various government agencies and private foundations. Sue was active in a number of professional societies for food science, analytical chemistry, allergy, and immunology. She was named a fellow of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in 2004 and a fellow of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology in 2003. In 2000, she received the IFT Samuel Cate Prescott award, an award given to honor outstanding researchers. The assistance she provided to the candy and confectionery industry was acknowledged in 1999 when she was given the Marie Kelso Speaker Award. In light of Sue's research, the University of Nebraska awarded her the 1999 Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources Dinsdale Family Faculty Award. Sue was an avid bicycle rider and racer, having competed since the early 90s in road races, criteriums, and on the velodrome. She became a bicycle racing official in 1991, advancing through the ranks to attain the status of National Commissaire in 2006. Besides being an excellent judge, Sue's forthright personality and strength made her an excellent referee, a specialty more often dominated by men. Of the 1,500 cycling officials in the country, only 50 have made it to the level of National Commissaire, and only 19 of those are women. In the mid-90s, Sue, along with many others, was dissatisfied with the direction that USA Cycling was taking. She believed that more attention should be given to grass roots cycling and more support provided to junior and masters riders. Together with another Midwest cycling enthusiast, Nestor Evancevich, Sue started a new cycling federation, American Bicycle Racing (ABR). She worked with ABR as their Technical Director through August. Family members include father and step-mother, Louis and Mary Jean Hefle of Grafton, Wis.; brother and sister-in-law, Scott L. and Diane Hefle of Germantown, Wis.; half-brother, Dan Hefle of Hartland, Wis.; nephews, Nathan and Jacob Hefle of Germantown; grandmother, Jeanette Kinnel of Glendale, Wis.; and uncles and aunts, Paul and Tina Kinnel of Mequon, Wis. and Raymond and Sharon Hefle of Taylor, S.C. Sue was preceded in death by her mother, Nancy Hefle and grandparents. Friends and colleagues across the U.S. and the world will mourn Sue's passing. A tribute to Sue's life will be held on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2006, from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the LINCOLN FIREFIGHTER'S RECEPTION HALL at 241 Victory Lane, Lincoln, NE 68528.

MADISON - Rosella Henderson, 84, of Madison died Thursday, Sept. 7, 2006, at St. Mary's Care Center, where she resided since her diagnosis of colon cancer 19 months ago. She and her husband, Scotty, lived for over 50 years in Monona, Iowa, where they raised their five children. Prior to her marriage, Rosella had been a teacher in a rural, one-room schoolhouse in Allamakee County, Iowa. After her husband died in 1994, Rosella relocated to Madison to be near two of her children and their families, Nancy Henderson (spouse, George Heideman and daughter, Kate Heideman) and Wynn Henderson (daughters, Rachel and Meghan Henderson). The nurturance she received from them, from their close friends, as well as friends she made at Midvale Heights and St. Mary's, greatly enriched her life. Rosella instilled in her children and grandchildren a love for education, an abiding spirituality, the values of kindness, compassion, and a deep gratitude toward life and toward other fellow travelers. In keeping with her Irish heritage, she had a sharp wit, a great love for music and dancing, an iron will, a delight in all children and particularly her grandchildren, and a high level of interpersonal intelligence. As a staunch Democrat, she canceled out her husband's vote in most election years. In the words of the writer Henry James, "there are three significant human endeavors: the first is to be kind, the second is to be kind, and the third is to be kind." Those who knew her will remember her kindness and miss her forever. Besides her Madison family, she is additionally survived by a daughter, Sherie Dawson of Monona, Iowa, (spouse, Larry; sons, Michael, Matthew, and Mark; and daughter-in-law, Joanna Willis of Minneapolis St. Paul); as well as a daughter, Joan Henderson of Boise, Idaho, (spouse, Fred Mondin; and step-son Greg Mondin and family of Boise); and a son, Gene Henderson of St. Louis and Miami, (spouse, Glenda, and son, Chris Collis and family of Bloomington, Minn.). Three sisters, two sisters-in-law, and numerous beloved nieces and nephews are also among those who mourn her passing. Rosella was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; two sisters; and three brothers. A memorial service will be held in the community room of ST. MARY'S CARE CENTER on Friday, Sept. 15, 2006, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Her remains will be buried in Monona, Iowa.

Katie was first and foremost a warm, loving and generous wife and mother, as well as a nurse, a fund raiser and an advocate for the environment, the poor, the disabled and those without adequate health care. She was born to James and Fern (nee Shantel) Crawford in Blue Earth, Minn., on Jan. 1, 1950. A few years later the family moved to Milwaukee. Katie received her BSN with honors from UW-Milwaukee. She married P. James (Jim) Sullivan in 1973 and in 1974, gave birth to Neal P. Sullivan. In 1983, she married Robert J. (Bob) Paul, to whom she referred as her "Sweetie," and their son, Adam N. Paul, was born in 1985. Katie's professional career began at Columbia Hospital, Milwaukee and continued at Madison's University Hospital. But she found her found her true calling in community nursing. In 1982, she began a series of positions with Dane County Public Health continuing until her retirement in 2005. She led, promoted, raised grant funds and nurtured the Women, Infant and Children program; in-home health care for the elderly; Migrant Health; school nursing; women's cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment and many others. During her last 12 years she held the position of Adult Health, Chronic Disease Prevention Coordinator. Katie received numerous awards and recognitions. Among those of which she was most proud were a "Muchas Gracias" recognition from the Latino Health Council of Dane County for her years of committed service to the improvement of the health and well being of Latinos in Madison and the Lotus Award from the Wis. Women's Health Foundation for her activism in women's health issues including in ovarian cancer education, early detection and awareness. In 1997-8 she assisted in fund raising for the Women's Revolving Loan Fund and thereafter traveled to Vietnam to be present at the dedication of a Peace Park near the place of the My Lai massacre on its thirtieth anniversary. Katie was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2001. After surgery and chemotherapy, she volunteered with the UW Comprehensive Cancer Center's support network, to take phone calls, on referrals from doctors, from women newly diagnosed with the disease and counsel them. She continued these most generous and compassionate activities until two months before her death. In her personal life Katie belonged to several women's groups which were very important to her. Her gourmet cooking was renown among friends, relatives and special neighbors. She liked nothing more than to host dinners offering creative entrees, wine, good conversation and, weather permitting, a slow Lake Mendota shoreline cruise at sunset. A dedicated and involved soccer mom to both her sons, she later reveled in receiving phone calls from them on the west coast inquiring from their kitchens how to nuance a particular recipe. Katie believed strongly in the advancement of experimental cancer treatments and thus of the eight different types of chemotherapy treatments she received, three were clinical trials. She was an advocate for the recent legislative enactment that requires insurance companies to cover the customary and routine medical costs incurred by patients engaged in clinical trials. Preservation of wetlands, prairie restoration and conservation were important objectives for Katie. Years ago she personally participated in the planting of restored prairie at Governor Nelson State Park and at the St. Benedict Center. But all this to one side, Katie's gift was her ability to give herself on an individual basis in such a way that many friends considered her their own best friend - this was and is her unique and continuing gift to them, which they each retain and will cherish always. She possessed a depth of spirit and joy for life that was infectious and open to all. She is sadly and tragically missed. Katie was preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her husband, Bob of Waunakee; her sons, Neal (Penelope) of Nevada City, Calif. and Adam of San Francisco; and a most beloved grandson, Nelson Orion Sullivan of Nevada City, Calif.; sisters, Nancy Wozniak (special friend Brant Nellans) of Carlsbad, Calif.; Julianne (Justin) Harris of Springdale Ore.; Debbie (Terry) Tariq of Racine; brothers, Terry (Barbara) Crawford of Greenfield; Jerry (Debbie) Crawford of Waterford; Connie (Jim) Geary, Linda (Louis) Borda, Danny Crawford and Jim (Hazel) Crawford, all of Milwaukee; and many loving and cherished nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends. The family wishes to thank the generous and caring staff at the UW Comprehensive Cancer Care Center, especially Dr. Ellen Hartenbach, Dr. Lori Seaborne, Dr. James McDermott and the very competent and nurturing nursing staff on the OB/GYN oncology unit and in the General Clinical Research Center. A celebration of Katie's life will take place on Friday, Sept. 15, 2006, at 3 p.m. at the ST. BENEDICT CENTER, Holy Wisdom Monastery, 4200 County Highway M, Middleton. Visiting with the family will begin at 1:30 p.m. and the celebration will be followed by a reception on the premises. The family suggests in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to The Benedictine Life Foundation's Environmental Endowment program AcreMaker, (dedicated to restoring and maintaining prairie and wetlands on the 130-acre Center grounds), in Katie's name.

Zeisig, Marilyn "Lyn"
MILWAUKEE - Marilyn "Lyn" Zeisig, of Milwaukee, passed away at a Milwaukee hospital on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2006, after a brief battle with cancer. Lyn was born and raised in Mount Horeb, the daughter of Martin and Esther (Ranum) Tollund. She graduated from Mount Horeb High School and attended Beloit College, where she was a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority. Lyn worked as a secretary in her father's law office for a time and then worked at the Legislative Library at the Capitol in Madison. She then moved to Milwaukee, where she was employed as executive secretary to the CEO of Cramer-Krasselt Advertising and later worked for the Milwaukee Association of Commerce. Lyn is survived by her sister, Jan (Bob) Gay of Madison; her brother, Bob (Janet) Tollund of Bloomington, Minn.; nephews, Andrew (Dannelle) Gay of Sun Prairie, Eric Tollund of Denver, Colo. and Patrick Shanahan of Bloomington, Minn.; and a grand niece, Sarah Lyn Gay of Sun Prairie, whose baptism Lyn was able to attend in Madison on July 30. She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister-in-law, Karen (Dysart) Tollund; and her husband, Edmond F. Zeisig, a prominent Milwaukee attorney. Lyn's many interests included sports, travel, her family, friends and her dogs. She took an interest in fencing in her early years in Milwaukee and competed for the Shorewood Fencing Club. Her husband was well known in fencing circles as a competitor, coach, official and committee member at many levels, including the U.S. Olympic Fencing Committee. Together they traveled to all parts of the world and after Edmond died, Lyn continued to travel. Her regret was that she had been to all of the continents except Antarctica and she was gathering travel brochures on tours to Antarctica when she became ill. Lyn took great interest in her nephews and their activities and attended all of their graduation events and other special occasions where they were involved. She was thrilled at the arrival of her grand niece and in spite of her failing health, made a supreme effort to attend Sarah Lyn's baptism, just three days before she died. Lyn delighted in maintaining traditions with friends and insisted on observing gatherings on an annual, and even weekly, basis. In addition to her loyalty and love for family and friends, Lyn was devoted to her dogs, Misty, and later, Sammy. They provided Lyn with so much companionship when she otherwise lived alone and she gave them all the loving care and respect she would have if they had been family. Lyn was laid to rest next to her husband in a private service of remembrance on Monday, Aug. 7, 2006, at Forest Home Cemetery in Milwaukee. Feerick Funeral Home of Shorewood handled the arrangements.
