Scott Bindl

M, b. circa 1983, d. 22 May 2004
Father*Darrell Bindl b. 15 Aug 1955, d. 22 Feb 2000
  • Scott Bindl was born circa 1983.
  • He was the son of Darrell Bindl.
  • Scott Bindl died on 22 May 2004 Scott Bindl, age 21, of McFarland, died unexpectedly from respiratory failure at home on Saturday, May 22, 2004. Scott was a 2002 graduate of McFarland High School and was currently enrolling at Madison Area Technical College. He was employed at the Green Lantern in McFarland. His favorite things in life were simple: being with his family and spending time with his dogs. Scott is survived by his loving mother, Vicki of McFarland; his brothers, Mike, age 25, and Steve, age 24, both of Madison; his sister, Larissa, age 17, at home; grandparents, Martha Bindl of Monona, and Leo and Rosie Luther of Spring Green; many aunts and uncles; and cousins. He will also be missed so much by his awesome canine companion, Brutus. He was preceded in death by his father, Darrell, in 2000; his grandfather, Victor Bindl; and his uncle, Richard Bindl. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at CHRIST THE KING CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5306 Main St., at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 25, 2004, with Father Stephen Smith presiding. Friends may call from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. on Tuesday at the church. Burial will be at McFarland Cemetery. A special heartfelt thank you to Dr. Ed and Debbie Kramper for 21 years of devoted care to Scott, and to Dr. Chris Green and the pediatric pulmonary team at the UW Hospitals and Clinics. Born with a rare breathing disorder, Scott defied the odds and outlived all expectations. He faced so many challenges in his life but always did so with a quiet strength, never complaining. We will miss his smile and his wry sense of humor. We take consolation in knowing he is at home with his dad. We love you Bud, and will miss you so very much. Welcome home son. His loving arms held open and his heart so full of love. Welcome home son as Jesus stood there glowing. Their hands reached out and touched. I knew that you'd return to me. The place that you were meant to be. Rest now for you've been gone too long. I heard him say as they embraced. I've waited so long for this day. My son, my very own, welcome home.

Schmitz, age 83, of Richland Center and formerly of Bear Valley, passed away on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, at Greenway Manor Nursing Home in Spring Green. Florence was born on June 23, 1928, the daughter of Herman and Erna (Willey) Marklein of Plain. She met her husband, Francis Schmitz at a dance. They were married on Oct. 12, 1948, and spent 55 years working hard together at the Schmitz Bear Valley Cheese Factory. After their retirement in 1987, they moved to Richland Center. Together they raised four sons and a daughter, Gerry (Alice) of Hawthorn Woods, Ill., Kathy (Wayne) Morgenthaler of Richland Center, Peter (Cindy) of Sun Prairie, Tom (April) of Spring Green and Dale (Mary) of Naperville, Ill; 10 grandchildren and a great-great-granddaughter; a sister, Imelda (Don) Lins of Prairie du Sac, two sisters-in-law, Rita Marklein and Anne Marie Ring both of Spring Green; two brothers-in-law, Joseph (Catherine) Schmitz and Erwin (Lindy) Schmitz both of Bear Valley; several nieces and nephews; and other relatives and friends.
    She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Francis; four brothers, Ray, Vincent, Larry and Lloyd; and two sisters, Viola Marklein and Laura Moran. Florence was known for her love of family, her deep faith, wonderful home-made bread and delicious "shipwreck". She had a great sense of humor, quick smile and enjoyed cross-stitching, crocheting and spending time in her huge beautiful rock garden. She endured over 15 years from a stroke with great dignity and strength without complaint. She gave her children good values and strong work ethics which are now her grandchildren’s. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2012, at ST. MARY'S CATHOLIC CHURCH in Richland Center at 11 a.m. Father Roger Scheckel will officiate with burial in the St. Kilian’s Catholic Cemetery in Bear Valley at 2 p.m. Visitation will be held on Friday, March 23, 2012, at the STAFFORD FUNERAL HOME in Richland Center from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. where a scripture service will be held at 3:30 p.m. Visitation will also be held on Saturday at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of Mass at 11 a.m. A special thanks to Dr. Tom Richardson and the staff at Greenway Manor for their tender and loving care of Mom over the last seven years.
