Family and friends are remembering a Sun Prairie couple who died in a crash in Kenosha County.

Last Thursday, Bram and Shari Dorresteijn's minivan collided with a semi that was stuck in construction traffic on Interstate 94. Shari Dorresteijn died at the scene. Bram Dorresteijn was taken to the hospital. He died Sunday.

The couple are survived by a 2-year-old son and a 2-month-old daughter. Shari Dorresteijn's sister will adopt the children.

"They will never forget how much they were loved by Bram and Shari," said Bram's sister Tessa Dorresteijn.

Shari Dorresteijn is also being remembered by her former high school. The 33-year-old was a graduate of Divine Holy Angels High School in Milwaukee. Athletic Director Peggy Braun still has a picture of Dorresteijn framed in her office.

"For somebody so full of life and so young and with young children to have such a tragic ending for her and her husband, is really beyond comprehension," said Braun.

The Dorresteijns were able to donate their organs, saving at least three lives.
