Gabriel Ann Nicole Petsche, 21, was taken from us Friday, February 1, 2019. She was a passionate young woman who had an infinite love for her son, Daymien William. Gabby’s true passion was her beautiful ten month old son, Daymien William, who is a reflection of his mother’s fire for life. The best part of both of their days was seeing each other as Gabby walked in the door from work. Their eyes would light up every time they were reunited.
Gabby was born January 6, 1998 in Monroe, WI to Georgia Lynn Petsche Kruse. She attended schools in Lena and Warren where she played basketball, softball, and volleyball and was a member of the cheerleading squad and color guard.
She was employed at Stoughton Trailer in Brodhead, a place where she expressed her joy and excitement to go to work and be with her coworkers.
