Fitchburg - Elaine K. Schaller, age 97, passed away on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at Agrace HospiceCare. She was born on August 8, 1921 to Lauren and Marie (Haemmerlie) Kleppe in Montrose Township. In 1946, she was united in marriage to Norman F. Schaller. Elaine loved time spent with her family, and enjoyed her extensive travels. Elaine had many talents. She enjoyed gardening and was adept at home food preservation so that vegetables and fruit were enjoyed year round by her family. She took pride in her beautiful flower beds, and in later years she always had the best potted plants due to her green thumb. Elaine was an excellent seamstress and made many beautiful garments for herself and her family.

Elaine is survived by her children, Paul (Sandra), James (Nancy Yang), Kristine (David Polich) Kappel, and Carol (Steven) Sobek; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and brothers, Floyd and Lyle Kleppe.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at Cress Funeral Home, 3610 Speedway Road, Madison, with a visitation from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service. A luncheon will follow the service, and burial will be held at Roselawn Memorial Park.

Memorials may be made to Agrace HospiceCare, 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Fitchburg, WI 53711; or the charity of choice.

Chambers Family on Jan 11, 2019

My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your dear loved one. Losing a loved one is a distressing and painful time. We have assurance from God’s word at Psalm 34:18 that he is near to those brokenhearted and he saves those crushed in spirit. It is my hope that your family will find strength to endure during the days ahead.

Carol Sobek on Jan 8, 2019

If flowers grow in heaven,
Pick a bunch for me,
Then place them in my mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.
