Whitney James Kastning (23) passed away unexpectedly on January 6, 2021. Her loss has left all

who knew her devastated and in a total fog. Born on March 4th, 1997 in Shawano Wisconsin

to Brenda Kastning.


Whitney spent all of her time with her son, Zaiden (5). Her world, her number one, her best friend.

She was a loving, caring, playful Momma. She was always snapping pictures of the two of them

doing anything and everything.


Whitney always tried her best to be there for her family and friends even through her own pain.

She had a goofy. Outgoing personality that made it extremely easy for her to make friends with anybody.

She loved food, beading earrings, art, writing poetry and collecting numerous things ranging from shoes,

pens and sanitizers.


She’d often say she had type one diabetes, but it did not HAVE her. Living in pain a majority of the time was

a struggle but, she was strong-willed because of her faith in God.


Whitney will be dearly missed by her son Zaiden, mom Brenda Kastning, sister Vanessa Kastning, nephew Kyson,

brother Isaac Rouse, other siblings from her father’s side (Greyhair), grandpa Mark (Karen) Kranzusch, grandma

Sue Kastning (Randy) uncle Steve Kastning (Darla) auntie April Kastning, auntie Mandy Krause (Brad), auntie

Lissy Kastning, uncle John Kastning, uncle Grant Kastning (Brittney), great grandma Nancy Meulemans, numerous

cousins, and many others she crossed paths with.
