Peter, please accept my heartfelt condolence for the loss of Mary-ann. What a kind, and beautiful spirit she had. I recognized such a joy and love for learning and educating in Mary-anne, the way her face would light up in talking about children. She was certainly inspiring to me and i fell blessed to have known her. Much love at this difficult time XO.

To the Eltink Family, My family and I would like to extend our sincere condolences for the loss of Mrs. Eltink. I have many fond memories of running into and out of that house with your mom (and dad) always checking in, sharing a smile and asking about my day. Tony, your parents always seemed bigger then New Holstein, with an intellectual presence as if they belonged in the big city. I always thought that was one of the many great experiences about being around your place growing up. I am grateful for the memories I have of her and I am truly sorry for your loss. All the best to your dad, Jenny, and your family during this time, Mat, Margeaux and Audrey Buechel

I first met Mary Ann when she visited Ledge View Nature Center and later became a valued volunteer and friend with the Friends of Ledge View nature Center.Her inspired leadership was pivotal in creating a Volunteer Coordinator position for the Friends. Mary Ann was a understanding and compassionate person who volunteered her talents for many of the nature centers events.Its because of Mary Ann and people like her that Ledge View grew to a outstanding facility for the study of nature. I wish Peter and the family my sympathy for their great loss. Ron Z

So sorry for your loss. I so enjoyed talking with Mary Ann and Peter when I lived across the street from them in Sherwood. At the time I was going through Chemo and they were both a godsend, they would welcome me into their home and we would talk and laugh it was the bright spot of my day when I would walk across the street to be greeted by Mary Ann. She will be forever in our thoughts.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Peter and family, I am so very saddened to hear of the loss of Mary Ann. She was so helpful to me when I began at SASD! She was a source of information, good cheer, and kindness, and provided me with a wealth of knowledge about the new district to which I was hired. She was a compassionate friend and colleague. I was so very, very fond of her. She was exceptional in so many ways. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

So sorry for your loss. Mary Ann and I worked together at Washington Elementary. I was a 5th grade teacher and she inspired and encouraged me to pursue my Masters in Reading. We continued our friendship during her retirement with occasional lunches either in Sheboygan or meeting near her home. Sadly the past few years we lost touch. I will never forget her kindness, patience and love for learning. She was a gem!

Mary Ann Eltink was my dad’s aunt. Mary Ann was always such a kind and caring woman. One of my most treasured memories is when my family was staying in Wisconsin to take care of my grandmother Dorothy Vander Velden. My brothers and I were younger and it was not our “typical” summer. We did not quite understand all that was going on and our parents had a lot on their plate. Mary Ann went out of her way to make my 9th birthday super special. She knew that I absolutely loved everything to do with school—classrooms, cute decorations and most importantly my teachers. I looked up to her and thought her students must be so lucky to have her as a teacher. For my birthday, she took me to a store for teachers, gave me a cart and told me to get whatever I wanted. I remember being ecstatic and still cherish it as one of my best birthdays to date. Mary Ann thought of others before herself and was one of the most kind and selfless people I have ever met. She will be very missed.
