Nalonnie A. Von Gunten

Out of all things in life, Nalonnie loved being a mother the most. Her love for her children and grandchildren was infinite. Every child that walked through her door, she made sure felt loved and her favorite way to show it was by providing home-cooked meals big enough to feed an army. Her Sundays were always spent at church with her beloved boyfriend, Roger. She treasured her time in the outdoors and with all animals, especially her own. Nalonnie will be dearly missed by all of her loving family and many friends.

Nalonnie is survived by her seven children, Adam Kenowski, of Bend, Oregon, Joseph (Ashleigh) Von Gunten, of Fond du Lac, Rayleen Von Gunten, of Waupaca, Andre Von Gunten, of Rib Lake, Joshua (Patience Turner) Von Gunten, of Stevens Point, Scott Von Gunten, of Iola, and Ryasa “Rainy” Von Gunten, of Milwaukee; former husbands, John Kenowski, of Waupaca, and Jeff Von Gunten, of Waupaca; 11 grandchildren Sophea, Chole, Brogen, Paitynn, Elden, Claire, Haddie, Emma, Reuben, Quinn and Nora; dear friend, Roger Ventrice, of Montello; three brothers, George (Lucila) Boyles, of Temecula, California, Pete Shawanomitta, of Shawano, and Francis Shawanomitta Jr., of Green Bay; three sisters, Marilyn Wilson, Liz (Byron) Shawanomitta, of Baraboo, and Catherine Shawanomitta, of Green Bay; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Andrew Jr. and Ida Boyles; three brothers, Lee Boyles, Andrew Boyles and Stewart Boyles; and a sister, Marilyn Shawanomitta.
