McFarland/Shorewood Hills: Frederick M. Rich, MD, age 85, died peacefully surrounded by his family on December 1, 2012.

Fred was born September 27, 1927 to Frederick and Gretta (Ingham) Rich in Jefferson, Iowa. He graduated from Cooper High School and earned his MD in 1950 from the University of Iowa, where he met the love of his life, M. Mary Underriner, MD, his wife of 50 years. He valued his long career as a radiologist in southern Wisconsin. He loved his family, farming, swimming, theatre, and a good laugh.

Fred is survived by three children: Maria (Thomas) Eberle, Elizabethtown, KY; Sheila (Jeff) Michalski, St. Louis, MO; Mark (Devra) Rich, Madison, WI; five grandchildren: Basia, Sophie and Jeffrey Michalski, Paul and Brian Eberle; brother Jon Rich, MD and many cherished nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, loving wife, son Kevin, brother Clarence "Bud", sisters Lola Culver, Louise Ellis and Clarice Hankins.

A Requiem Mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at St. Therese Chapel, 6039 Baltes Road, Waunakee, WI 53597, with visitation from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service. Burial will follow at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery in Madison.

The family wishes to send a heart-felt thanks to the doctors and staff at St. Lukes Cardiovascular ICU in Milwaukee for their compassionate care.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, 21077 Quarry Hill Road, Winona, MN 55987
