Doris Mary Kneeland (Miklautsch)

Doris was born February 17, 1930 in Rib Lake, Wisconsin to Erna and Blasius Miklautsch. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loved ones. She was 89 years old.
Doris is survived by her sister Audrey, her six children; Guy (Barb), Debra (Gary), Yvonne, Alan, Dean (Christine), Shelly (Ryan), her 18 grandchildren; 9 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews which she loved dearly.
She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Wallace of 52 years, her parents and her sisters; Beatrice and Charolette and her brother Melvin.
Doris was a loving mother, grandma, sister, wife and friend. Doris loved outings with her family, camping when her kids were little and anything that involved them. She loved her reality T.V. like The Bachelor, Survivor and Shark Tank. She also loved her favorite soap opera of 45 years, Days of Our Lives.
She loved talking on the phone with her kids and always found time to help anyone with anything. Mom loved to play cards, her favorite game was Rummy.
Mom was a very adventurous woman with a wonderfully sarcastic sense of humor. She would try anything once, like going on a rope swing on the river, she didn’t know when to let go of the rope…but that’s another story. She loved boating, fishing, going to garage sales, going out to eat, listening to music – her favorite song was “Rhinestone Cowboy” by Glen Campbell and spending time with her family.
She will be dearly missed by all.

John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”


Poem
Sometimes God picks the flower that is still in full bloom; sometimes the rosebuds chosen, we feel He’s picked too soon. Sometimes the flower is fading with petals floating down, but God knows the perfect time to gather flowers from the ground. There is a heavenly garden in which God takes great pleasure, because He’s placed within it the loved ones we treasure. He walks among the blossoms, giving them eternal rest, and I know it must please Him, because He chose our very best.
