Andrea Langrehr Engelhardt, 51, Oxford

November 6, 2018

Andrea Langrehr Engelhardt, 51, of Oxford, passed away Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018, at University of Wisconsin Hospital.

Andrea was born Oct. 4, 1967, in Richland Center, to Roger and Florence (Juedes) Langrehr. She graduated from Riverdale High School in Muscoda, and the Janesville School for the Blind. She married Raymond Engelhardt on March 28, 2003, in Marquette County. Throughout her life, Andrea has faced many medical challenges and was among the first generation of hydrocephalics to live to adulthood. Andrea understood and appreciated that each hospitalization, complication or shunt replacement allowed doctors to learn from her in order to help others. She faced her final struggle with ovarian cancer with a sense of humor, grace and dignity.

Andrea is survived by her husband, Raymond Engelhardt. She is also survived by her daughters, Lisa, Kristina and Megan Langrehr; brothers, William (Sheri) Langrehr, and Thomas (Yong) Langrehr; sisters, Mary (Tim) Brink, Margaret Miller, and Catharine Langrehr. She is further survived by brothers-in-law, Charles Engelhardt and Joseph Hatfield; and sister-in-law, Caroline Engelhardt; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Roger and Florence Langrehr; brother-in-law, James Miller; and father- and mother-in-law, Charles and Mary Engelhardt.

Andrea was able to see the best in people, always finding what made them unique and special. She delighted in the simple things that many of us take for granted. A walk to the lake near her home, a wildflower bouquet picked by her daughters, a special song, a beloved horse coming when called, snuggling with a pet, sharing a meal, or joking with family and friends brought her comfort and happiness. Her greatest joy was in family and seeing her daughters grow and thrive.

Memorial services will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Friendship. Visitation will be from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service Wednesday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (www.roseberrys.com).
