Ellen F. Koehnke, 53, of the Fox Cities, passed away peacefully on December 12, 2021, surrounded by the Koehnke family and loved ones. She went to school in Menasha, and also lived in Neenah, Appleton, Manitowoc…and even left the state. She was always on the move and loved to go thrifting for her next treasure. Live music was her go to and she would be dancing. And for those who knew her she will be dearly missed and always remembered.
Ellen was a strong hearted person that loved her family and would always offer help to a new friend, she would give you her last cigarette as long as you’d run to the gas station. She loved drinking a cold can of coke.
Ellen requested a celebration of life be held in her honor as opposed to traditional funeral services. For all who knew her, please join us in celebrating her beautiful life at Waverly Beach, located at N8770 Fire Lane 1, in Menasha, beginning at 4:00 PM on Friday, December 31, 2021, at 4:00 PM.
