Obituary: Adella T. Kohl - Class of 1948

MADISON - Adella T. Kohl, age 81, of Madison, passed away on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2011, at UW Hospital.

She was born on May 10, 1930, the daughter of Karl and Theresa (Reinhardt) Popp. Adella graduated from Madison Central High School in 1948. She married Jerome Kohl on Oct. 21, 1950. Adella loved to sew, and was a fantastic cook. She will always be remembered for her pies and dynamite pie crust. While raising her family, she was active with Brownies and Cub Scouts and was a room mother at their schools. Adella enjoyed taking day trips with Jerry and sharing the simple joys of seeing new sights. But her true joy in life was being surrounded by her family. Adella gave all her attention and love to her loved ones.

She is survived by her husband of 61 years and best friend, Jerry; daughter, Kathy Edwards of Monona; sons, Mike Kohl of Baraboo, and Dave (Christine) Kohl of Wautoma; two grandchildren, Stacy (Michael) Rich and Kristine (Chris) Wright; and five great-grandchildren. Adella was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters; and two brothers.

Private services were held. The family would like to express their gratitude to everyone at Rest Haven for all their loving care.
