New Kid's View

Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.

A Neighborhood Loss

Betty Meich, Bob Meich, Spaltholz

We lost our good friend and neighbor, Betty Meich, last week. It has been a difficult time for her since she lost her beloved husband Bob more than a year ago. She’s had more than her share of health issues. And, although, her daughter Kathy, son-in-law David and grandson Robert, who live not far away, have been devoted, caring and helpful in every way, her medical problems eventually became too great. We and her other neighbors will miss her as will her many friends and her loved ones, most especially Kathy, David and Robert.
