Ethel Marie Process, 95, passed away on Thursday, September 15, 2022, at her home with her family by her side. She was born on October 25, 1926, in Rosiere, WI to the late Eugene and Mary (LeCaptaine) Graume. Ethel attended SS. Peter and Paul Catholic School and East High School. After High School she worked at Wheelers and soon after married the love of her life, Marvin Process on September 13, 1947, at St. Philip Catholic Church. They enjoyed 68 years together.
Early in her marriage Ethel worked for Schrieber Cheese and Zuider Zee but put her career on hold to raise her family. After her children were all in school, she joined the work force again and worked for H.C. Prange (Younkers), for 27 years in the Terrace Room Kitchen. She was an avid shopper and put her Younkers discount to good use by always looking for that next bargain. She also traveled extensively. Ethel was a devout Catholic, wife, mother and her family always came first. She was also a huge Packer fan. You could find her in the kitchen either cooking, baking, or canning. Sunday lunches were very special to her. Ethel never forgot a special occasions. Her cards were so thoughtful and carefully selected. Her personal notes were always touching, and she will always be remembered for the two-dollar bills, the full bowl of candy in the cupboard and her immense love displayed in her hugs and hand holding. One of Ethels last wishes was to make sure everybody receives their birthday cards for the rest of this year.
Ethel will be sadly missed by her five children, JoAnn (Richard) Elliott, Carol and the late Bill Caldie, Mary (Mike) Berceau, Larry (Debbie) Process, Danny (Peggy) Process; 10 grandchildren; 12 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. Ethel is further survived by her nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.
In addition to her parents Ethel was preceded in death by her husband, Marvin Process; brother, Harvey (Jeanne) Graume; her father and mother in-law, Edward (Dolphine) Process, and other nieces and nephews.
