    My condolences to Sue Knueppel and family. Sue, you have gone above and beyond taking care of your mom for many years and I’m sure your mom must have really appreciated that. Just wanted you to know I’m thinking about you and we miss you here at work. Take care. Chris Denstad

    So sorry to hear about Julie’s passing. I truly enjoyed the seven years that I hd the privilege of working with her at Onalaska High School. She was such a sweet and caring lady. She had such a generous heart, Eagle Bluff students are still enjoying the Disney books and other items she donated to our library. Rest in peace Julie.
