Kay Marie Danielson

Kay Marie Danielson, 82, passed away Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at the Mission at Castle Rock Rehabilitation Center surrounded by her loved ones, both in person and virtually. They spent sacred moments reminiscing and expressing love. “Grandma Kay” wore herself out being a mother and grandmother and will be missed. “Grandma Kay” was born on March 11, 1938 in Holmen, Wisconsin, the daughter of Arnold Casberg and Verna Otilda Theige. Kay graduated from Holmen High School and the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. She graduated with degrees in Math and Music and sang throughout her life in choirs, including “Messiah” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She worked as a teacher and then as a data processor at Wisconsin Gas Company until her retirement in 1997. She was the treasurer of the Town of Saukville, Wisconsin. She relocated to Green River, Wyoming from Wisconsin in a brave move when she was 75 years old. She enjoyed music, reading, Jeopardy, and spending time with family and friends. Kay was a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan, and her home donned the green and gold. She made delicious chili and lasagna, and shared meals with others. She weaved hats with her time and donated many to members of the community. She was preceded in death by her parents and survived by her son, Mark Danielson of Sitka, Alaska, and wife Amy; daughters, Marsha Kay Harris of Green River, Wyoming, and husband Joseph; Maria Becker of West Bend, Wisconsin; and Patricia Warsinske of Springfield, Illinois, and husband Richard; grandchildren, Joseph C. Harris and wife Morgan, Eli Harris and wife Kelsey, Michelle Nixon and husband Jeremy, Eric Harris and wife Ashley, Seth Harris and wife Taylor, Mark Harris and wife Ashley, Sarah Harris and husband Alexander Lourenco, Julia Rollins and husband Marty, Laura Rivers and husband Wesley, Anna Harris, Mary Harris, Lily Harris, Zachary Becker, Hannah Becker, Zofia Danielson, Levi Danielson; great-grandchildren, Boston Harris, Denver Harris, Dash Harris, Liv Harris, Hallie Kay Harris, Owen Harris, Scarlett Harris, Claire Harris, Bennett Harris, Lucy Nixon, Maxwell Nixon, Thaddeus Nixon, Fredek Nixon, Easton Harris, Oakley Harris, Harlee Harris, Emory Harris, Chanelle Harris, RayLee Rollins, Theodore Rivers, and two babies due in January of 2021. Private family services will be held virtually, and she will be laid to rest beside her parents in Wisconsin. Condolences may be left at www.foxfh.com

My husband and are I are so sorry for your loss. Kay was a friend of my mother-in-laws and she is part of the reason I joined Advent Lutheran Church. I visited one Sunday and looking and behold who cane walking down the center aisle singing her heart out with the choir but Kay. I thought there is a reason my friend told me Id like Advent. I joined the choir and sang with Kay for many years. Please accept our sincere condolences. Mickey Else and Derek Vander Hoop

We were saddened to learn of Kay's death, and have many very pleasant memories of her and her family. Her kids may remember P.O. and me, Annette Olson. We had roast goose at your house one Christmas! Please accept our condolences for your loss.

As does cousin Alan Halvorsen who died November 18, cousin Kay makes appearances in memories of long ago. Her parents were my aunt and uncle, Verna and Arnold, whom I particularly remember when in my teens I had a summer job at the Holmen cannery. My condolences to Kay's amazing number of descendants.

I was a classmate of Kays in high school. We shared many fun times with school activities and also at our church. We had many slumber parties at our houses back then. We were in our girls choir at church and also Luther league and LDR. In school we were in Future Homemakers of America, Science Club,Pep Club, chorus, swing band, and Kay was also a majorette and was on annual and newspaper staff. Our class was small back then only 28 graduates so we were very close and did so much together. We have lost quite a few classmates but the remaining ones still try to get together once a year and treasure our time together. Our sympathy goes out to her family and remember the good times. God bless Carol (Ustby) Rindahl
