Christine Mary Funk, age 70, died on July 11, 2019, at St. Paul’s Elder Care in Kaukauna. Chris was born September 20, 1948, in Stockbridge, daughter of the late Frank and Bertha (McHugh) Gerhartz. 

Chris graduated from Stockbridge High in 1966. Chris worked at a nursing home for one year and then was hired at Tecumseh Products until retiring in 2006. Chris married Gene Funk from Sherwood on July 20, 1968, and they moved to Stockbridge in 1976 after their first son was born and their second son was due. 

Chris is survived by her husband, Gene, and son, Michael (Lisa); two grandchildren: Conner and Madison; two brothers: Edward (Dolly) and Glen (Diane); brothers-in-law: Duane (Barb) and Gary (Bonnie). She is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. The family would like to thank her close friend, Pat, and her niece, Kay, for all of their comfort in this trying time.

Chris was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Bertha, her younger son, Steve, and seven brothers and sisters: Maxine, Jim, Jack, Mary, Sally, Pete, and Noreen. 

A visitation has been set for 4:00pm until 7:00pm on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, at the Wieting Family Funeral Home in Chilton. The family invites everyone to join them for a meal and time of togetherness at the funeral home from 7:00pm until 8:00pm.

The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to St. Paul’s Elder Services and the nurses that took care of Chris. Your compassion was remarkable and appreciated.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in the name of Christine Funk.
