The Green Lake community has lost a great friend on Saturday, July 28.

     Lauree Renaud — a childhood friend of mine — and her beloved husband, Paul, worked tirelessly along with many other biking and trail advocates to develop and maintain biking and walking trails.

     With awarded grant money and donations, she and her associates realized success in building a wonderful bike trail and are presently working on another.

     Lauree has had many limiting health ailments that exhausted her both financially and physically. ...

     Please feel free to give a charitable donation for her final expenses in care of Paul Renaud at the Butzin–Marchant Funeral Home, 515 Mayparty Drive, Ripon, WI 54971.
