He was the son of Darrell Bindl.
Death22 May 2004Scott 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.

You only had to meet her for a short while to feel her genuine kindness, warmth and humor. She had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in the room. She was a wonderful mom and grandma and made each of us feel that we were “her favorite”. She held many jobs in the Spring Green area but by far her favorite was working at the Bank of Spring Green where she developed many strong friendships that continued after her retirement. In her 95 years she touched many lives- she truly had a wonderful life. Survivors include her 3 daughters, Joyce Loomis of Waunakee, Ann (Tom) Sippy of Madison, Renee (Joe) Dolan of Sparta, 7 grandchildren, Meeghan (John), Mark, Greg, Paul (Jessica), Jeff, Laura (Andrew), Karen, a granddaughter-in-law, Stacy, 2 great grandchildren, Chloe and Selah, 2 brothers, Joe (Catherine) Schmitz, Erwin (Lindy) Schmitz both of Bear Valley, nieces, nephews, her very special in-laws, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, son-in-law, Bob Loomis, a grandson, Wade Loomis, 4 sisters, Eva Schmitz, Zita Nachreiner, Gert Bindl, Anne Ring, 3 brothers, Gregor, Leonard and Francis Schmitz. A special thank you to Bucky and Arlene Peterson for their daily visits, friendship and unending support. She called them her angels, and indeed they were. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. at St. John’s Catholic Church in Spring Green. Fr. John Silva will officiate with burial in the church cemetery.

Death3 February 2017Cletus R. Ring died on 3 February 2017 at age 90 Cletus R. Ring “Clete” left this world a better place than he found it on February 3, 2017.
