The Town of Ixonia (WI) Fire Dept. & Emergency Medical Services regrets to inform you of a Line of Duty Death in the passing of active member Kelly L. Raether from COVID-19 complications.

Kelly was a 15-year member, joining the department in November of 2005, and served the department as an Advanced EMT, EMS Lieutenant, and most recently as EMS Captain.

Kelly was also a registered nurse, working at Aurora Hospital in Hartford, as well as a Nursing Instructor at Carroll University in Waukesha.

A statement from Carroll University said: “As a nurse, she selflessly risked her life to care for others. For Kelly and so many others, nursing is a calling and a lifestyle. We honor our colleague Kelly and celebrate her life as a nurse and teacher. She loved Carroll University and all her students.”

Funeral arrangements are currently pending.
