Wanda Lou Mileur Kaschalk

Wanda Lou Mileur Kaschalk, age 78, of Falls Creek, PA passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Saturday, November 17, 2018. She was born in Murphysboro, Illinois on September 25, 1940 to the late Raymond and Helen (Williams) Mileur.

After high school in Murphysboro, Wanda moved to Washington D.C. where she met and married her husband Jim on May 20, 1961. Wanda was a loving mother and the greatest of friends. She never met someone she didn’t care for, a true lover of people. From Little League to Midget Football, to hunting and fishing, to coaching cheerleading and softball, she lived for her children and grandchildren and was a part of their lives completely. Even friends of her own children found a loving, nurturing mother in Wanda.

Wanda carried her hard-working farm girl upbringing into all she did. When not being a part of the lives of her children and family, she had a job; everything from making dishes at Jackson China to night watchman at Rockwell. She spent most of her career in the medical insurance field, retiring from Guardian Eldercare in 2013.

She was preceded in death by her mother, father and stepmother, Mary Ellis Mileur. She is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, Jim, children Jim & wife Linda of Erie, PA, Keith & wife Laura of Surprise, AZ, Patrick of Falls Creek, Kelly & husband Gene Yochim of Erie, PA, 3 sisters, 5 brothers, 8 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren with 2 more on the way, and many nieces and nephew.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, especially her dear friends Becky Nadji and Lisa Summerson.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 from 2-4 & 6-8 PM at the Baronick Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at 10 a.m. from St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church with Msgr. Richard Siefer as celebrant. A luncheon for family and friends will follow in the church hall.

Burial will follow in St. Michael Cemetery.

Memorials may be placed with Penn Highlands Hospice, 100 Hospital Avenue, DuBois, PA 15801, in honor of their compassion and caring in her final days.
