Lyle A Blaedow

(1933 – 2021)

Lyle A Blaedow: age 88, of Whitewater, WI passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 23, 2021.

Lyle was born in Waukesha, WI on July 4, 1933, the son of the late William and Orpha (Klix) Blaedow. 

Growing up in Little Prairie, WI Lyle had two brothers and two sisters (Beverly, Judith, Wayne, and Robert “Rocky”).

On October 25, 1951, Lyle married the love of his life Theressa S Grelewics.  Together, they had seven children (Dan, Mike, Debbie, Tim, Randy, Kim and Chris).  Theressa passed in September 1999.

Lyle worked for over 25 years at Trent Tub in East Troy Wisconsin.  Upon retiring, Lyle’s primary focus was his family, traveling, fishing, and becoming closer to his Lord and Savior.  Lyle would often say, “there is a better place for us after our life here on earth is over and that he was ready when the Lord wanted him”.

In recent years, Lyle enjoyed Friday night fish fries with his son Dan and daughter-in-law Dori.  Sunday dinners with his son Kim and daughter-in-law Brenda.  He was also an avid bowler and especially enjoyed spending time with his sister Beverly and her husband Richard shopping and joining friends at the senior center.

Lyle was a devoted and loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother who will be greatly missed.  At the end of every encounter, Lyle would always take the time to say, “I love you”.

Lyle also enjoyed sharing his cat Sammy with his many friend and neighbors at Mulberry Glen Apartments.  Neighbors would ask Lyle to “bring Sammy out” so they too could enjoy Sammy’s antics.

Lyle was preceded in death by his father, William, mother, Orpha, wife of 47 years Theressa, daughter Debbie, sons Randy and Michael, brother Wayne, sister Judith Foltz and grandson Mikey .

Lyle is survived by his sons Dan (Dori), Tim (Antonio), Kim (Brenda) and Chris (Maggie) as well as by many grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.  Lyle is further survived by his sister Beverley (Richard) Grosskreutz of Whitewater, WI, his brother Rocky Blaedow of Rhinelander, WI and his sister-in-law Ginger Blaedow of Palmyra, WI and a host of relatives and friends.
