Madison – Louise S. Frame “Weezie”, age 62, passed away on Monday, August 14, 2017 at home, surrounded by her family and friends.

She was born May 30, 1955 in West Bend, Wis., to Jamie and Joseph Steuer of Madison. She graduated from Madison East in 1973. Louise had two daughters from a previous marriage, Anna and Rosalie Cardarella, born in 1975 and 1976, respectively. Louise met the love of her life Bob Frame, and was united in marriage in 1995. She was a rural postal carrier for 30 years, and was well loved by the people she served.

Louise had a generous spirit and infectious laugh. She had a positive attitude, even when faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis. Her smile would brighten a room. Louise was a voracious reader, and loved nothing more than traveling with her husband Bob to see her favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. She loved spending time with her 5 grandchildren.

Louise is survived by her husband, Bob; daughters, Anna (Andy Sailing) and Rosalie Cardarella; parents, Jamie and Joseph Steuer; grandchildren, Jasmine, Jackson, Charlotte, Owen and Matthew; siblings, Dorothy (Archie) Degnan, Joseph (Carmen) Steuer, Jamie (Bill) Wacek; her fathers-in-law, Robert Frame and Michael Gormican; mother-in-law, Fern Maas; in-laws, Steve Frame, Tammy Frame, Kathy Hasse, James Frame, Paul Frame, Lisa (Terry) Hustad and Tara King; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends; and her dogs, Princess and Lacey.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Fred and Dorothy Genrich, Joseph and Elsie Steuer; uncle, Freddie Genrich; and aunt, Virginia Sammon.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 19, 2017 at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 2418 N. Sherman Ave., Madison. A visitation will be held from 5 – 8 p.m. on Friday, August 18, and 10 – 11 a.m. on Saturday, all at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN) at www.pancan.org , the UW Carbone Center, or the Nebraska Medical Center Carcinoid Clinic in Omaha. Since her diagnosis in 2010 of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Cancer, Louise participated in every Purple Stride Madison event to raise money and awareness for those with pancreatic cancer.

The family would like to thank Dr. Noelle LoConte at the UW Carbone Cancer Center, Dr. Jean Grem at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, as well as two special nurses, Sandy (UW) and Lucie (UNMC) for their loving and considerate care. Additionally, we would like to thank Julie Sparks for being Louise’s friend and caring for her (and all of us) to the very end. We are forever grateful.

We will always be walking for you, Mom.
