Ramona Rose Nachtigal, age 90, of Reedsburg, passed away on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 surrounded by family after a long battle with dementia. She was born on August 17, 1927 in Winfield Township, Sauk County, the daughter of Malcom and Blanche (Doering) Mittlesteadt. On May 6, 1946, Ramona married Arthur Nachtigal in a joint ceremony with Irvin and Eva Mittlesteadt in Baraboo. They raised seven children: Richard (Jan) Nachtigal, deceased; James Nachtigal, of Reedsburg; Cindy (John) Nelson, of Jupiter, FL; Wendy (Joe) Gates, of LaValle; Tim Nachtigal, of Reedsburg; Tom (Sherri) Nachtigal, of Winona, MN; and Todd Nachtigal, of Reedsburg.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her son: Richard; and her three brothers: Russell, Rupert (Lucille) and John Mittlesteadt. Ramona worked as a nurse's aide for many years and was heavily involved with Special Olympics. In her spare time, she enjoyed canning fruits and vegetables from their large garden. She will also be remembered for her baking, especially at Christmas time with her delicious pepper nuts, orange cookies and her cut-out cookies.
