Montello/Madison-Ethel Kalinske, age 91, passed away at the Willows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Sun Prairie on Sunday, March 3, 2013.

Ethel was born February 5, 1922 in Montello to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schmidt. She graduated High School in Montello in 1941. She worked as a cashier for Alexander's grocery store in Montello and many years for Kroger and A & P grocery stores.

We wish to thank the Willows Nursing Home for their many years of excellent care.
