Loiselle, Betty J.
MADISON - Betty J. Loiselle, age 81, passed away on Thursday, May 24, 2007. She was born on April 19, 1926, the first child of Homer and Gertrude Bambrough and lived in Madison most of her life.
She worked and lived in Milwaukee, before she met and married Harold W. Loiselle, in July 1947. They lived for awhile in Beloit, before moving to Madison and buying a home across the street from where she grew up.
After her husband's death in 1967 and after her daughters were adults, she started working at Burr Oaks Bowling Alley in the child care room.
She was a wonderful daughter, niece, sister, mother, aunt, great aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.
She never complained, even when life became more difficult. She was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1994 and was in remission for more than 11 years. We really thought we had won the fight until she was diagnosed with lung and liver cancer on Sept. 19, 2006.
They say when cancer revisits a body it once inhabited, that it comes back with a vengeance, which it did. She never gave up the fight, which started with the first round of chemotherapy. We learned to live each day as if it were our last. Since our mother had far exceeded doctors expectations the first time around, we could only hope for that same miracle the second time. She continued the fight until her last breath on May 24 at HospiceCare. She will be missed by her two daughters, Barbara (Richard) Johnson of Spring Green and Debbie (Stuart Seffern) Loiselle of Madison; granddaughters, Sandra (James) Rohweder of Reedsburg, Marci (Aaron) Bindl of Madison and Rhonda (Ricky) Fradette of Spring Green; great-grandchildren, Natalie and Allison Rohweder, Hannah Bindl and Dylan and Drew Fradette; and several nieces and nephews also survive. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Loiselle, in November 1967; sister, Dorothy Bambrough, in February 2007; brothers, Gordon, Donald, Leslie, Ronald and Roger Bambrough; and her parents, Homer and Gertrude Bambrough.
