VICTORIA RAE LANDING "TORI"
Ms. Tori Landing, of St. Rose Ave. in Fredonia, was carried home on angels wings by her Lord and Savior. She passed away peacefully at her home while surrounded by her loving family early Tuesday morning, May 7, 2013. She was 9 years old. Victoria was born in West Bend on December 13, 2003, daughter of Timothy and Charlene Koehler Landing. The family has lived in Fredonia since 1998. Ms. Landing attended school at Northern Ozaukee Elementary School where she had fun being around her friends and teachers, especially Kameran, Mrs. Murre and Mr. Schultz. Tori was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome at age 2 1/2. She enjoyed attending St. John's Lutheran Church in Fredonia with her family. Tori loved the color red! She also liked Elmo, music, reading, and having her family and friends around her. The noisier and busier things got, the happier she was. Spending time at the Koehler Family Pond; grilling, swimming, and enjoying the campfire were special highlights, as well as time spent at the Balance, Inc. Special Summer Recreational Program. Tori also loved her brother Josh's dog, Bailey, the family cat, King, and her toys. She is survived by her loving parents, Tim and Charlene of Fredonia, brother Joshua "Josh" of Adell and sister Tamara "Tammy", also of Fredonia. She is further survived by her grandparents William (Carolyn) Landing of Appleton, aunts and uncles: Gerald "Jerry" (Barb) Koehler of Crivitz, Fred "Fritz III" (Sue) Koehler of Belgium, Dale (Katie) Koehler of Amery, Bruce (Dawn) Koehler of Random Lake, Ed (Jeanne) Landing of Albany, NY and Hal (Joanne) Landing of Grafton. Tori is also survived by numerous cousins and friends. She is preceded in death by her grandparents Fred & Betty Koehler, Jr., and Helen Landing, and cousin Kristen Koehler. Funeral Services will be held at 12 noon on Friday, May 10th at St. John's Lutheran Church, 824 Fredonia Ave., Fredonia. Rev. Robert Zick will preside. She will be laid to rest in St. John's Cemetery, Fredonia. The family will receive visitors at the Eernisse Funeral Home ( 1600 W.
