A trip to Holy Hill to see the fall colors with her daughter was also an annual tradition.
    Ms. Rothman had many friends, her daughter added.
    “She was warm, caring and liked to help people — especially those who didn’t have much,” she said. “And she was a good listener.”
    She also enjoyed the company of her dog, Joey.

Gloria Ann Warner Taylor Allen of Belgium was an artist whose palette went beyond paper and paint.
    “I used to tell her, ‘You got all the talent in the family,’” her cousin Mary Ann Mrozek said.
    Mrs. Allen was a seamstress who made her own clothes, and her mother’s too, her cousin said.
    “Her mom knit, and when she would make a dress for her mother, her mother would knit a sweater to go with it,” Mrs. Mrozek said.
    “She did beautiful counted cross stitch. And she painted too. You would get a birthday card and there would be a stem and flower she painted or a little bunny.”
    Mrs. Allen worked for a firm making presentation boxes, and through that she learned woodworking.
    “She made a desk for her mother, and a table,” her cousin said.
    “She was always busy.”
    Mrs. Allen died Tuesday, Aug. 22, at Lawlis Hospice at Columbia St. Mary’s Ozaukee Hospital in Mequon. She was 80.
    She died of complications from strokes and congestive heart failure, her cousin said, but had suffered from multiple sclerosis since 1988.
    Mrs. Allen was a native of Milwaukee, born on Oct. 10, 1936, to William and Adelaide “Jane” Giersch Warner.
    She married Ralph Allen of Belgium in Las Vegas on Nov. 26, 1976.
    “She was a good lady,” her cousin said. “She was strong, and she was very generous. She gave away a lot of what she made.
    “She was hard working, and did all her own yard work.”
    Mrs. Allen had many friends, and was often accompanied by her dog.
    “She had dogs all the time,” her cousin said. “She always rescued dogs. She just loved animals.”
    Mrs. Allen is survived by her sons, Eugene Taylor and Jay Taylor, both of Mercer; stepdaughter Betsy Allen-Mcphedran of Maine; and brother Chuck (Janet) of Mercer.
    At Mrs. Allen’s request, no funeral service will be held.
    Memorials to the Ozaukee Humane Society are suggested.

Jeffrey Lee “Trapper” Nash, 64, passed away after a courageous, five-year battle with cancer on July 24, 2017, surrounded by loved ones in Crandon.
Jeff is survived by his loving wife Dawn Nash of Crandon; loving sons Robert Nash of Saukville and Michael Nash of New London; along with the Wendt family and other close family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents Marvin and Mary Nash of Crandon.
Jeff spent as much time as he could outdoors — landscaping, hunting, fishing and cruising White Eye Lake on his pontoon boat. He loved to putter around in his gardens and had very specific standards for his lawn. As a family, the Nashes traveled for the better part of 10 years all over the country for off-road races.
Jeffrey was born on April 13, 1953, in Port Washington to Marvin and Mary (Hill) Nash.
He graduated from Port Washington High School, and was married to Dawn on Aug. 20, 1982. He worked in the trucking industry for many years. Jeff and Dawn lived in Grafton until they retired to Crandon in 2015.
No service is planned for Jeffrey, but his family will celebrate his life with a private memorial and honor his life daily.
Weber Hill Funeral Home in Crandon was in charge of arrangements, and questions can be directed to the funeral home.
Memorial donations sent to Dawn will be directed to Ozaukee County 4-H.
Jeffrey will be dearly missed by everyone who loves him, and his family is relieved that he is no longer suffering.
