Obituary for Thomas M. "Tom" and Mary Lou (Lange) Aird

Thomas M. "Tom" and Mary Lou (Lange) Aird
Dickeyville, Wisconsin

Heaven gained two very special angels on April 7, 2018. Thomas M. “Tom” Aird, 62, and Mary Lou Aird, 60, of Dickeyville, Wisconsin passed as a result of injuries suffered in a car accident while visiting family in Tennessee. Services will be 10:30 a.m. Monday, April 16, 2018, at St. Rose of Lima Church in Cuba City with Rev. Bernard Rott officiating. Burial will be in Holy Ghost Cemetery in Dickeyville. Friends may call from 1-6 p.m. Sunday at the Immaculate Conception Parish Center in Kieler where the parish wake service will be at 12:30 p.m. Friends may also call from 8:30-9:30 a.m. Monday at Casey Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Cuba City before the services.

Tom was born September 9, 1955, in Dubuque, IA, the son of Arthur and Rose Marie (Gagne) Aird. He grew up in the Hazel Green area and attended Southwestern High School. Mary Lou was born July 7, 1957, in Cuba City, WI, the daughter of Robert "Bob" and Darlene (Droessler) Lange. She was a proud lifelong resident of West Lane, and attended Cuba City High School. Tom and Mary Lou were high school sweethearts and were married on February 28, 1976. Tom and Mary Lou settled on West Lane and raised three children while Tom worked at the Cuba City School District for 30 years and Mary Lou worked at Honeywell in Galena for 33 years. Both had just recently found their dream job of being retired and full time grandparents.

Tom and Mary Lou cherished their family more than anything in the world. Their family went far beyond what most call family, as they had so many close friends. Their favorite people in the world however, were their grandchildren. If Tom and Mary Lou were not home, you could almost guarantee they were somewhere chasing one of them. Mary Lou and Tom were amazing grandparents. They spent their time wisely as all the grandchildren have special memories of them. When asked what was the most special, they talked about sneaking out for ice cream (if grandma wasn’t watching), early morning fishing...the earlier the better, Johnson Lake, Northerns the size of the kids, the many adventures with the porcupines, and the cabin...they all loved the cabin. Desserts will never be the same and some of their moms are going to have to learn to cook now. The fishing boat, which Mary Lou did more reading than fishing in. Raised as a dairy farmer's daughter, she never cared much for milk but loved her wine. She was the only grandma they knew that enjoyed sledding as much as they did, and she could sit and listen to them play the piano and sing “you are my sunshine” for hours. Tom’s love for the outdoors has been passed along to the next two generations. Grandpa was a hunting buddy to all. Some of their best trips resulted in snacks and stories but no shooting. Tom was also notorious for teasing, but secretly they loved it. Mary Lou and Tom were everyone's biggest fans, ranging from their kids and grandkids to nieces, nephews and friends. There wasn’t a ref around that was safe from Mary Lou and if they were not doing their job she’d let them know. Her voice could always be heard and the mandatory two arm hug after every competition will be fondly missed. Their unconditional love for anyone they came in contact with, has taught us all how to love no matter what, and they leave behind a community who they loved so dearly.

Tom and Mary Lou are survived by their three children, Michael (Amanda) Aird, Darlington, WI, Sarah (Jeremy) Wagner, Mondovi, WI, and Matthew (Misty) Aird, McKenzie, TN; Tom’s mother, Rose Marie Aird, Rolling Meadows, IL; their eight grandchildren who were their pride and joy in life, Ethan and Eli, Brandon, Cody, and Anna, Maggie, Zach, and Gracie; Mary Lou’s brothers, Rick (Mary Kay) Lange, Prairie du Chien, WI and Kevin (Jean) Lange, Dickeyville, WI; Tom’s sisters, Sue (Bob) Heller, Munford, TN, Blanche Hough, Katy, TX, and Nancy Pelletier, Darien, IL; and Tom’s brother, Kenny (Cindy) Aird, Cuba City. They were preceded in death by Tom’s father, Arthur; Mary Lou’s parents, Robert "Bob" and Darlene; and their nephew, Jeremy Heller.

A Thomas M. "Tom" and Mary Lou Aird Memorial Fund has been established. Memorials may be sent to 837 Valley View Court, Darlington, WI 53530.
