Arlene Fritz

June 13, 1936 — May 2, 2024

Arlene J. Fritz, a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on May 2, 2024, at Aurora Medical Center in Oshkosh, WI at the age of 87. Born the late Vincent and Elda (Lyness) Bradley in Utica, WI on June 13, 1936, Arlene was known for her vibrant personality and unwavering love for her family. She married Harvey Fritz on January 16, 1954, in Pickett, WI.

Arlene found joy in the simple things in life. She could often be found tending to her garden, caring for her flowers, mowing her lawn, or delighting in the various bird species she spotted while bird watching. Growing up on her family's dairy farm, Arlene had a deep connection to the farm, the land, and the animals, which she carried throughout her life.

She dedicated herself to her family, cherishing moments spent playing Old Maid and Uno with her loved ones. Arlene's kindness, warmth, and love for her family were evident in every aspect of her life. Her children, Kay Ann, Gary, Richard, Sandra, Jeffrey, Connie, and Kevin will always remember her as a strong and caring mother who put her family above all else.

Arlene's legacy of love and devotion will live on through the memories shared by all who were fortunate enough to know her. She will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all whose lives she touched. May she rest in peace.

Surviving Arlene are her seven children, Kay Ann (Richard) Sandoval, Gary, Richard (Karen), Sandra (Kelly Kiser), Jeffrey (Eileen), Connie (Bob) Dodd, and Kevin; grandchildren, Gary (Julie), Stephanie, Jennifer, Ken (Steph), Megan, Jeremy (Sharla), Jason (Jamie), Jamie (Andrew), Russell (Elaine), Stephanie, Alex, Melissa, Shawn, Krystal, Cody (April), Nathan (Nadia), Cassandra (Gavin), Carrissa (Antonio), Job (Makenzie); and brothers, Vince (Margie), and Doug Bradley. Arlene is further survived by her numerous great- grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, Arlene was preceded in death by her husband, Harvey; grandsons, Casey Fritz, and Brandon Dodd; brothers, Glenn, Edwin, and Dan.

A funeral service for Arlene will be held at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Homes Westside (100 Lake Pointe Dr) on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, at 12PM. A time of visitation will be held from 10AM until the time of service. A burial will take place at Tice Cemetery
