Harold Quale

Harold Bernard Quale, age 94 of Hammond, died peacefully on December 6, 2018. Son of Sever Quale & Anna-Marie Senn, Harold was born on January 8, 1924 in Mondovi, WI. He was united in marriage to Marie Agnes Brion on November 11, 1944. Their union would later be blessed with six children; Larry, Judi, Pat, Nancy, Diane, & Barb. Harold & Marie were known in the Hudson area for their decorating business. Harold spent the first 34 years of his life on a farm, where he raised dairy cows & farmed the land. That period of time formed his love of nature & his ability to fix darn near anything. Harold & Marie enjoyed nature; whether it was spending time bird watching, in the garden, fishing, or on long drives. These last years, Harold enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles, watching old John Wayne movies, & watching the squirrels & birds at his bird feeders at Hammond Health Service.
