STOUGHTON/Lisa Rae Dewey passed away Thursday, June 13, 2013 at age 49.

She was born in Janesville on July 24, 1963 the daughter of Jack and Eunice (Meyer) Kriedeman.

She was a veteran having served with the U.S. Navy from 1990 to 1995. She was very proud of completing 5 years of military service; therefore, continued her dedication through volunteering with fellow veterans and other memberships such as the DAV Chapter #2 and the Stoughton American Legion Post 59 Auxiliary.

Lisa will be dearly missed, but our memories of her will never be forgotten. Some of those memories were spending time with her family on Lake Kegonsa, her athletic gift of basketball, and her abundance of love and kindness. Lisa's great sense of humor and outgoing personality made her presence hard to go unnoticed. What was always most important to Lisa was her family and friends. The family would like to thank all of the people who supported Lisa throughout her illness.

She is survived by her children, Cassandra and Dillon Dewey; the father of her children, Robert Dewey; her sisters, Lois Alme and her children, "Big Jack", Sally and Jack Williford and Connie (Dave) Balsamo and their children, Brandon Casey, and Colton Balsamo; special sidekick, her dog, Gabby; and several cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jack; grandparents; brother-in-law, Jerry Alme; and nephew, James Williford.

Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 11 am at Christ Lutheran Church, 700 County Hwy B, Stoughton with Rev. Scott Geister-Jones officiating. A visitation will be held on Monday from 4 until 7 pm at Cress Funeral Home, Stoughton, and on Tuesday one hour prior to service.
