We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Myrhum-Patten Funeral Home - West Bend
Ione Bette Kohlman, age 90 years, of West Bend, WI was called home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.
Ione was born on November 15, 1931 in St. Michael, WI to the late Jake and Elizabeth (nee Schneider) Schladweiler. She was united in marriage to Harold Kohlman on June 26, 1954. Harold passed away on Sept. 16, 1997.
Ione had an amazing zest for life. She left a mark on most people she met with her smile and love. She was happy, conversational and most importantly, caring.
