Aileen Marie Fritz passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on December 13, 2018 at the age of 89. She was born December 30, 1928 to Arthur and Leone (Kellett) Flanagan. She married Clarence Fritz on June 23, 1953. He preceded her in death on October 8, 2001.
Aileen enjoyed living on the Peshtigo River and watching the birds and other wildlife in her yard. Planting and caring for her flower gardens kept her busy. Aileen liked to curl up by the fireplace and read. She especially loved visiting with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Aileen graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and taught school first in Peshtigo and then in Marinette for 30 years. Teaching kindergarten was her passion. In March 2018, Aileen moved to New Perspective Senior Living in Howard.
Aileen is survived by her sons David (Jill) and Peter (Dolly) and her grandchildren Andy Fritz, Ryan (Sara) Fritz, Marie (Nick) Ott, Ben (Heather) Fritz, Alice (Mike) Arft, Sarah (Bryce) Carlson, and Spencer Fritz, and her great-grandchildren. She is also survived by three sisters, Joan Nelezen, Donna Klein, and Nancy Flanagan, a sister-in-law, Vivian Bertrand, and a brother-in-law, Emil Fritz, and numerous nieces and nephews.
