Edna Rohde (1937-2019)

Edna (Griesbach) Rohde passed away at Kenosha Senior Living on November 21, 2019.

The daughter of Edward and Frances (Lechner) Griesbach, she was born August 17, 1937 in Racine, Wisconsin and graduated from Horlick High School.

On July 13, 1957 she married Paul “Carson” Rohde in Racine. They cherished the life they spent together.

Edna was a homemaker and ran her own cleaning service. She was a member of St. Mary’s Lutheran Church and was active with the Girl Scout Cookie Drive for many years. She was past president of the Allenwood Condominium Association. She enjoyed playing bridge with friends. Edna’s greatest joy was her children, and she instilled in them strong values, generosity, and compassion. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband Carson, two sons Jim (Janine) Rohde of Kenosha and David Rohde of Elkhorn, two daughters Janet (Mark) Fisher of Highland Park IL and Anna (Neil) Kersten of Kenosha; grandchildren Philip (Pinky), Kevin, Tom and Allison Rohde, Elizabeth (Michael) Letarte, Hannah Fisher and Sarah and Jack Kersten; dear brother- and sister-in-law, John and Mary Rohde.

Her parents and a sister, Mary Tayerle, precede her in death.
