Rebecca (Gumtow) Allen


Rebecca loved animals, especially her cat Martha. She was a volunteer for river cleanup in Colorado and she rang the bell for Salvation Army for many years in Sheboygan.

Family, friends and colleagues knew Rebecca as a friendly competitor in sports and a gentle soul, as a conscientious worker and an avid cyclist, as a person with ambition and a great friend, as a volunteer for charity and an advocate for environmental awareness.

Rebecca enjoyed camping, hiking, snowboarding, gardening, landscaping, and cycling. She was a participant in the Green Movement and politely urged colleagues to "think green," including making a habit of recycling of materials and biking to work whenever possible. Her message was heard and several people now think green, and will continue those thoughts in her memory.

Rebecca Anne-Emily (Gumtow) Allen, 32, died Tuesday, July 22, 2008, when she was struck by a car while on a bike ride in her hometown of Fort Collins. She was wearing a helmet, reflective clothing and was in the bicycle lane.

She is survived by husband Gregory; parents Gene and Maris Gumtow; in-laws Bruce and Lesley Allen; brothers Dave Gumtow (Michelle) and Jon Gumtow (Liz); sister Sherryl Herr (Mark); sister-in-law Nicole Chavez (Greg); brother-in-law Christopher Allen; nephews Joshua Gumtow (Amanda), Jared Gumtow (Fiancée Teresa), Bradley Gumtow and Andrew Gumtow; nieces Jennifer Gumtow, Royce Chavez and Madyson Rhodes; great nephew Peyton Gumtow and great niece Jasmine Gumtow. Also surviving are many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by a brother, Steven, and both sets of grandparents.


Jennifer Bukosky

                                On April 25, 2008 Jennifer Bukosky, her unborn daughter Sophie Bukosky and her 10 year old daughter, Courtney Bella, were killed by Mark Benson, a long time prescription drug and alcohol abuser. Also injured in the crash were her 12 year old son, Zach Bella, and Courtney's friend, Debbie Gibbs. Two days before killing Jenn and the children, Benson received his third DWI conviction. 

Bukosky's supporters have launched a web site that urges people to get involved by signing petitions and contacting their legislators to toughen drunken driving laws in Wisconsin.
