Arianne Kessler went to her forever home on August 2nd, 2023, after a courageous and short battle with a rare rapid moving cancer.
She was born to her loving parents Dolly (Savaglio) and David Schneider on May 1, 1970, at St. Catherine’s Hospital. She spent her early schooling years in Kenosha, and after high school she attended Taylor University for two years where she met her best friend turned sister Michelle. She then lived and studied in Central America – a time she treasured deeply. She completed her degree in bilingual education at UW- Milwaukee then worked for Racine County for several years as a bilingual caseworker. As her children grew, she dedicated several years to developing a homeschool curriculum for them before they entered middle school.
In 1976, Arianne met Randy Kessler at St. George CCD class after which their paths would wind together and apart eventually reconnecting later in life as soulmates do. They developed and shared a deep friendship and love leading to their marriage on August 11, 2001. They enjoyed building their lives together, welcoming two wonderful children into their family along with the adventures of raising them. Family road trips were a highlight and fall camping (well – the camping was Arianne’s highlight as Randy and the kids preferred a hotel, but all enjoyed the beautiful change of season a Wisconsin fall offers).
Arianne was a passionate, caring and intelligent person who lived her daily life relying on her faith in God. Her family meant the world to her. She enjoyed cooking especially traditional Italian foods. She is survived by her two beautiful children, Ara and Carmelina; her parents, David and Dolly Schneider; her sister Aimee (Ryan) Cooks; nephews Kyale Cooks, Garrett Olson, Nathan Olson, and niece, Savannah Cooks; brother Aaron Schneider; many cousins, aunts and an uncle, brother-in-law Scott (Page) Kessler; nephews Payden Kessler and Wyatt (Chrissie) Kessler; mother-in-law, (Barbara Kessler.)
Arianne is preceded in death by her dear husband, Randy, her father-in-law Richard Kessler, and her uncle Alex Savaglio A service and celebration of Arianne’s life is scheduled for August 19th at the Founders Hall at Kemper Center. Visitation will begin at 10 am and the service will begin at 11am. There is no need to wear black as this is a celebration of life. Bright colors are welcomed and appreciated! Also a special thank you to all the hospice workers who assisted in her transition.
