Kesner, Irene H.

At 93 years young and after battling leukemia, our Mother went to be with our Lord on March 21, 2018. Waiting anxiously for her were many including her loving husband, Ralph, parents Marie and Charles Lesch, brothers Nicholas, Irvin and Marcel Lesch and great grandchildren Hailee Kesner and Caleb Smith.

Irene was born on March 6, 1925 in Holy Cross, the town of Belgium, WI; daughter of Charles and Marie Reding Lesch. She attended school in Port Washington, later working at the Port Washington Chair Factory where she would meet her future husband.

On July 6, 1946, Irene married Ralph Kesner at St. Mary’s Church in Port Washington. They settled into their new home on Lakeview Ave where they would reside for many years.

Besides raising ten children with her husband, Irene had a passion for traveling. With her husband and some of their children, she criss-crossed the US from the west coast to the east coast with stops in parts of Canada. Irene also made several trips to Luxembourg where many of her cousins and their extended families still live. Slovenia is another beautiful place she visited, at first with her husband and later on her own. She was always warmly welcomed by her husband’s aunts, uncles, cousins, and their extended families despite the fact she did not understand the Slovenian language.

Other trips took Irene to England, France, Germany Belgium, Bulgaria, Romania, Australia, Fiji, and New Zealand. During these tours, Irene was blessed to have made some beautiful lasting friendships.

Irene is survived by her children, Mary Fox (Dave) of West Bend, Ralph of Cedar Grove, Rita Hasslinger (Ken) of Menomonee Falls, Ken (Janice) of Townsend, WI, Betty of Manitowoc, Irene Kocourek (Mike) of Manitowoc, Jim (Cathy) of Sheboygan, Phil (Peggy) of Sheboygan Falls, Ron (Renee) of Port Washington, Regis of Sheboygan; 25 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, and four more on the way.
