Lorelie Mae (Rausch) Egly, age 61, of Burlington, WI, passed away Wednesday, December 25, 2019.
Born in Waukesha on August 21, 1958, she was the daughter of Harland and Lucille (Egofske) Rausch . She attended Waterford area schools and eventually graduated High School in Illinois. On October 20, 1979 she was united in marriage to Robert Egly, Sr. Following marriage, they made their home in Pewaukee before moving to New Berlin 25 years ago. Lorelie was a devout Catholic, always living the motto: “others before self”. She was a caregiver to all. Lorelie loved Spring; she loved her rummage sales, collecting things and her flower gardens. She loved old westerns and Hallmark movies. She was a reading fanatic and dreamed of owning her own bake store some day. All these things paled in comparison to her love of family. She loved her family with every fiber of her being. She loved being Grandma and spoiling the grandbabies. She was a wonderful woman who will be missed by all who knew her.
Lorelie is survived by her children, Robert (Ashley) Egly Jr., Harland (Liz) Egly, Lucy (Rob) Frentz, Gary (Stephanie) Egly, Russell (Lisa) Zieman, and Eva (Mark) Midtbo; her nine grandchildren; and her siblings, Harley (Linda) Rausch, Tom (Susan) Rausch, Bill Rausch, Mary (Sam) Jovanovich, Fred Rausch, Ronnie (Karen) Rausch, Joe (Mary) Rausch, Jerry (Maria) Rausch, Jim (Donna) Rausch, Greg (Nancy) Rausch and Lydia (Glenn) Treganza; other relatives and many good friends.
She was preceded in death by her sons, Carl and Jesse, her husband, her parents and a brother John.
The family would like to thank their relatives and friends for their care and concern during this time.
