Kim Quade

1960 - 2022

Kim Marie Quade, 61, of Brandon, passed away peacefully on March 17th after a 4 ½ year battle with cancer. She was surrounded by members of her loving family as she began her journey transitioning into Heaven.

“There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains.”

Kim was born on October 28th 1960, in Milwaukee, to Angelo Patrick and Judith (Booton) Fargo. Kim graduated from Pewaukee High School and after meeting her husband, Wayne, focused all of her attention and love on being the best wife and mother and chose to be a stay at home mom.

Kim’s passions included: life and making the most of each day; her husband, children and grandchildren; her two small businesses (one owned with her husband, one owned with her daughter); cooking; enjoying delicious food; her chickens and cats; gardening; canning; supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs; sewing; walking and hiking; going on adventures; learning something new every day; tracing her ancestry line; and meeting and befriending new people any chance she got. Her contagious smile, her energetic zest and joy for this life and her desire to make everyone feel a bit brighter will be terribly missed.

Kim is survived by her husband of 41 years, Wayne; her four children: Justina Quade, Dominic Quade, Nichole (Bill) Roach, Christopher (Kerry) Quade; six grandchildren: Madalyn, Andrew and Matthew Roach and Jules, Jemma and Gentry Quade.

Kim was preceded in death by many loved ones including: her parents, brother John Fargo, her grandparents and so many other relatives.


Visitation will be held Monday, March 21, 2022 at Werner-Harmsen Funeral Home in Waupun from 4-7 p.m.


A private family burial will take place at Union Prairie Cemetery in the town of Metomen.
