Jolene T. (Fhlug) Butkovich, age 39, passed away unexpectedly due to a pulmonary embolism on November 8, 2020.

Jolene was born on May 7, 1981, to Fritz and Charlene Fhlug. She grew up in Charlesburg, WI, and Attended New Holstein Elementary and High School. Jolene loved her kids dearly and was very proud at the great boys they have become. She had a soft heart, especially when it came to animals, loving each of her pets dearly. Her brother Adam recalls when they were growing up how she would find a cat or dog on the side of the road and bring them home to raise and love them. Jolene had a hidden artistic talent that came naturally. She was terrific at using her creative mind to draw pictures that amazed everyone. Jolene could find the good in everyone and had a heart as big as the outdoors.

Jolene is survived by her parents, Fritz and Charlene; her sons: Hunter and Isaac Butkovich; her brother: Adam (Karen) Fhlug; and her sons’ father: Daryal Butkovich. 

The family has planned private services.

In lieu of flowers a memorial fund has been established for the two most precious things in Jolene’s life: Hunter and Isaac. Donations can be made through PayPal to Adam Fhlug, email:  
Dave and I are so sorry for the loss of Jolene. A young mother to two WONDERFUL young boys is a lasting legacy of her memories we can all share into the future. With Sympathy, Dave & Sheila

I reach out to give you strength at this time. We have no explanation why God chooses the times to call His children home. Know my thoughts and prayers are with you, now and in the days to come. Memories are important and the grandchildren are the future.
