In memory of Terrina Fellenz

bird tree_summer 2012On Sunday, May 24, we lost a friend and former employee, Terrina Fellenz. She was just 22, with a whole life ahead of her. Terrina was smart, funny, creative, brave, thoughtful, friendly–all those things you want to be and want other people to be. She worked at the library during the summer of 2011. The beautiful tree she created is still up in the children’s department. We don’t know what to say or think when someone so young is taken out of this world, but we hold onto the hope that the seeds Terrina sowed throughout her life continue to grow, that the lives she touched and changed will be different and better from knowing her. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Fellenz family as well as with Terrina’s many friends.

The library will be closed on Saturday, May 30th.

Funeral services for Terrina will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, at St. Lucas Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kewaskum. Rev. Troy Swenson will officiate and burial will follow in Lutheran Memorial Park in Kewaskum. The Fellenz family will greet relatives and friends at the church from noon until the time of service.
