Dear Jeanne, Rick and family, I was so saddened to hear of Babe's death. I don't know if you remember me, but I took care of your dad in ICU. Your parents became very dear to me and I kept in touch with your mom ever since that time. Still sent her a Christmas card, too! She loved you and her grandchildren very much and talked about you all the time. She was a great lady, always made me smile and was so fun to talk to. I pray you are comforted by all your memories and the promise of eternal life in heaven. Take care - Kay

"Babe" was such a POSITIVE and ENTHUSIASTIC woman with the personality of a CHEERLEADER. I knew her as a volunteer in what was called The St. Francis Gift Shop. She will be remembered with a smile by all who knew her. Elaine George

I remember as a little girl going with my grandma, Florence Kruschek (Freeman's sister) to visit Aunt Babe, who always had cookies in her sunny kitchen to snack on. Her tiny black poodle Tony was never far from her, and I was always happy when he'd sit still long enough to let me pet him. Aunt Babe, I'm so glad I got to see you a couple years ago and was able to get one of your tight-squeeze hugs. Give Uncle Freeman my love.

Mrs. Newburg was one of my all-time favorite moms. Rick and I have been friends since elementary school and many a day was spent at the Newburgs. I tell anyone who'll listen that I could walk in the backdoor of the Newburg home no matter what age I was and she'd have cookies out for me. Rick and I were the president and vice-president, and only two members, of the lazy club. I called Mrs. Newburg one day to pick me up from Aquinas and when she got there she asked, "Where's Rick?" I told her I didn't know. I just needed a ride home. We laughed about that for many years. I totally agree with Mike Coady's statement regarding her support for all of us while we were at Aquinas. She will be missed, but she will live on in my stories to my kids.

So sorry to hear about Babe’s passing. I knew her from a long time ago when I lived in the neighborhood. She was the life of the community! Often saw her and Donna Ritter at Rosie’s Cafe. She will be terribly missed! Rest In Peace, Babe!

Mrs. Newburg was a wonderful lady who loved and supported her children and their friends during our Aquinas days. She was always warm and friendly and always had a smile on her face. God bless Rick, Jeane, Jon and their extended family.

Babe was a wonderful Aunt and we had a lot of good times with her. She loved to talk about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She had a great sense of humor. I love her and will miss her.

Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. Babe was quite a gal. Loved our Boys when she visited us in Brookfield while staying with Jeanne & John. She will surely be missed. We shared a Hanson/Hansen bond. Sharing your loss! Tom & Dawn Hansen

Sending prayers and peace to the Newburg/Kroner family. We always called her "Babe" and, even after we moved from the neighborhood, I enjoyed seeing her in the Mayo gift shop or at McDonald's drinking coffee so we could catch up. The picture chosen for the obituary is so appropriate! Babe was always ready with a big smile and a warm hello! Rest in peace.
