Maxine Mary Neuman was born on December 25, 1932 in Lost Lake, Wisconsin to Frank and Adela (Ufer) Neuman. She attended a one room school house through 8th grade. Mickey graduated from Beaver Dam High School in 1950. On October 5, 1957, she married Richard Kaiser at St. Peter’s Catholic Church. Mickey worked as a secretary at Monarch Range for a number of years and part-time as a waitress at Pyramid Supper Club. She retired from Jefferson Elementary where she was the school secretary for 20 years. Mickey and Dick enjoyed spending the winter months in Arizona for 20 years. Although our hearts are heavy with the loss of our loving mom, grandma, and great-grandma, nothing comforts us more than knowing she and dad are together again.

Mickey is survived by her daughters, Cindy (John) Rueth of Appleton and Brenda (Dennis) Sherman of Anthem, AZ; grandchildren, Justin Rueth of Rochester, MN, Tyler (Emily) Rueth of Appleton, Tara (Mike) Erie of Mendota Heights, MN and Matt (Lana) Sherman of Valparaiso, IN; great grandchildren, Owen and Lauren Rueth, Oliver and Tilly Erie, and Davina Sherman; brother, Ron Neuman of Sun Prairie; sister, June Miller of Fall River; nieces and nephews; other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Richard in 2021; and siblings, Leova Stapel, Lucille Fullerton, Loretta Richter, LaVerne Vockroth, Mary Petrie, Francis “Bud” Neuman, Bette Giese, and Elaine Becker.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Touchmark Senior Living, especially Sandy and Sally, for their time and loving care that was always given to mom while there.
