Edith A. Tauschek, age 82, of Sheboygan Falls, Wis., passed away early Monday afternoon, April 22, 2013, at Aurora Sheboygan Medical Center following a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born in August of 1930, a daughter of the late Alfred and Ada Laabs Roepke. Edith attended Plymouth grade schools and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1949.

On June 26, 1954, she married Roland Tauschek at St. John Lutheran Church in Plymouth. The couple have resided in the town of Sheboygan Falls since their marriage.

Edith worked at American Chair Co. and at Milwaukee Cheese Co., both in Sheboygan.

She was a faithful and lifelong member of St. John Lutheran Church in Plymouth, and also was a 4-H leader for the Madison All-Stars for 49 years.

Edith shared her artistic flair in many ways – from mural paintings, costume designing for 4-H Music & Drama and RCS productions, sewing (including two family wedding gowns), crafts, floral arranging and baking and decorating cakes of all kinds for over 30 years. She made the wedding cakes for all of her children, and numerous nieces, nephews and family friends. In addition to spending time with her loving children and grandchildren, Edith loved to care for numerous pets over the years including chickens, ducks, bunnies, dogs, kitties and a pony. Her love of travel and exploring took her to many places in the U.S. and Europe.

Survivors include her husband of 58 years, Roland of the town of Sheboygan Falls; five children: David (Kathy) Tauschek of Sheboygan, Laurie (Dick) Kleine of Franklin, Steve (Maryjane) Tauschek of Plymouth, Bruce (Diane) Tauschek of Grafton and Julie (Jeff) Bayer of Sheboygan; 10 grandchildren: Holly Tauschek of Minneapolis, Minn.; Megan Tauschek of Sheboygan; Melissa Kleine of Milwaukee; Kristi Kleine of St. Petersburg, Fla.; Michael (Aurora) Thomas of Sheboygan; Preston and Analiese Tauschek of Grafton and Jackson, Avery and Sebastian Bayer of Sheboygan; and sisters-in-law: Crescentia (Dick) Winter of Sheboygan Falls and LaVerne Tauschek and Phyllis Tauschek. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Edith was also preceded in death by two sisters, Evelyn Triphan and Sharon Roepke.
