Stoor's dedication remembered
MONROE - Don Stoor was remembered as an easy man to get along with and work for by employees at Pleasant View Nursing Home.

Stoor, 55, who served as Pleasant View Nursing Home administrator, died Friday, Dec. 4, after a nine-month battle with cancer.

Stoor worked at Pleasant View since 1983. He began his career at the nursing home as assistant administrator. Most of his time at the nursing home was as administrator.

Cindi Miller, medical records secretary at the nursing home, said she always will remember the sign Stoor had on his desk that stressed the need for change.

"If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got," the sign read.

Miller, who has worked at Pleasant View for more than 37 years, said Stoor was dedicated to his wife, Susan, and his family.

He was an easy man to work with, she added.

"I rarely saw him get angry," Miller said. "He was very dedicated."

Avis Lueck, who has worked at the nursing home for 34 years, said Stoor would bring things to the residents and treated them like his own family.

"He knew everyone by name," Miller added.

Many of the employees attended the visitation and funeral for Stoor, which was held Friday at Union Presbyterian Church in Monroe.

They were sad to learn of his death, they said. Stoor had taken a leave of absence earlier this year, and the employees who worked with him for many years were able to grieve his loss even before he died.

"It was still hard," she said.

Stoor is survived by his wife, Susan; two daughters, Kristin (Bill) Wick of Brooklyn, and Kylee (Aaron Wright) Stoor of Madison; one son, Ryan Stoor of Brooklyn; and one grandson, Wilson Wick of Brooklyn.
