Cofrin, Peter A.
 

A public gathering of friends and family of the late Peter A. Cofrin is scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday (Oct. 4) on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Cofrin, a Green Bay native, died July 10, at age 63.

The gathering, titled "A Celebration of the Life of Peter Austin Cofrin," will take place in the Winter Garden area on the second level of Mary Ann Cofrin Hall. The atrium overlooks the courtyard that is the gateway to the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum. Peter Cofrin played a key role in land acquisition and creation of the arboretum.

Peter Cofrin was born May, 26, 1945, one of six children of the late John and Barbara Hauxhurst Cofrin and the nephew of Dr. David and Mary Ann Cofrin. He grew up in Green Bay and attended the Choate School in Wallingford, Conn., and Cornell University in New York State.

In the mid-1970s, Peter and his brothers and sisters established an endowment to develop trails and plantings and purchase additional property for an arboretum encircling campus with restored prairie, woodlands and Green Bay shoreline. Their $575,000 gift — at the time, the largest donation to a UW school outside of Madison — was a memorial to their father, who was president of Fort Howard Paper Co., and grandfather Austin Cofrin, the company founder. In 1989, the Cofrin children received the university's highest community honor, the Chancellor's Award. Peter continued to support UW-Green Bay through the years with his participation and presence at special events.

Peter was the founder of the "Good For All Society." He had a lifelong love of music, and was owner and operator of Third Coast Records and Pierce Arrow Recording, both in Evanston, Ill.

He is survived by his siblings, Patricia, John, Andrew and Penelope, and a son, Austin J. He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother, Doug.

Sapiro, Jane

Jane Kathryn Sapiro, 87, died Sunday as the result of complications caused by a recent stroke. Family members maintained a continuous bedside vigil after she was hospitalized and were at her side as her remarkable resolve finally ran its course. She was most happy when surrounded by family and that remained evident even as she drifted in and out of sleep in her final days.

Jane was a loving and caring mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She was both an open-minded and fair-minded person. And perhaps her greatest gift to her family was the example she set when it came to honesty and good, old-fashion values. One of her kids' favorite stories about her was the time she returned from a downtown shopping trip, discovered that she had been given too much change - something like 60 extra cents — and promptly returned it.

Jane was born in Sheboygan to Raymond and Lillian Hanson, although at some point the family changed the spelling of its name to Hansen.

Jane grew up in Green Bay, attended Elmore School and graduated from Green Bay West High School in 1939. She graduated the following year from Marquette University's dental hygiene program and subsequently worked for Dr. S.L. Chudacoff in Appleton and Dr. Lawrence Popp in Green Bay.

She married Abner Sapiro on May 12, 1950, in Milwaukee. They spent 54 years together until he preceded her in death in 2004. Previously, she was married to Cliff H. Christl, who died of cancer on April 4, 1947, after serving in the European Theater during World War II. The two had married on Oct. 3, 1942, at Camp Polk, La.

Jane is survived by her three children and spouses, Cliff A. Christl and wife, Shirley, De Pere; Jeff Sapiro, Portland, Ore.; and Nancy Sapiro and husband Lincoln Miller, Seattle, Wash. She also is survived by six grandchildren, Kelly Christl, Cassie Christl Schmitt and husband Cory, Daniel Sapiro, and Ana, Aidan and Kathyrn Miller. Other survivors include her two great-grandsons, Isaac and Beckett Schmitt.

Jane was preceded in death by her parents and husbands; sisters, Madeline "Midge" LeMere and Arlise Mae Hansen; and daughter-in-law, Jean Lemke.

Jane was both active in the community and gave generously to many charities, including sponsorship, along with Abner, of a Bellin College of Nursing scholarship. She also established the Jean Lemke Fund at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, Ore. She and Abner became Packers' season-ticketholders in 1950 and faithfully attended games together for more than 50 years. She also was a Packer stockholder, owning a share that dates to the 1950 drive to save the franchise.

She was a current and longtime member of Oneida Golf & Country Club. Previously, she belonged to Shorewood Country Club.

Jane was a member of the Cnesses Israel Congregation and the Brown County Historical Society. She also had been active in the Green Bay & De Pere Antiquarian Society, formerly served as a board member of Family Services of Brown County and acted in Green Bay Community Theater plays in the late 1940s. She was a longtime director of Bay Verte Realty Company and was president at the time of her death.

Until her failing health curtailed her activities in recent years, Jane was an avid golfer, swimmer and bridge player. She also liked to travel, and she and Abner for many years spent part of their winters in Palm Springs, Calif. They also made frequent trips to visit family in Portland and Seattle.

Funeral services will be held this morning at Schauer & Schumacher Funeral Home, 340 S. Monroe St., Green Bay. Visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m. followed by a service at 11. Burial will be in Cnesses Israel Cemetery in Fort Howard Memorial Park.

Contributions in her name will be donated to the Bellin College of Nursing.

The family of Jane Sapiro would like to pay special thanks to her kind and thoughtful regular caregivers, Belva, Maria, Barb and Nancy. The family also would like to thank Dr. Jeremy Green for his longtime care of Jane; and Dr. Amy James and the fourth floor staff at Bellin Hospital for the special care they provided her in her final days.

Murphy, Mrs. Roland (Helen)

On Friday, Oct. 17, 2008, Mrs. Roland (Helen) Murphy, 78, put her trust in Jesus and now experiences the fullness of God's peace. Helen was born Nov. 16, 1929, to Joseph and Ella (Ruben) Gille, the youngest of four children. Shortly after attending Green Bay East High School, she married the love of her life, Roland Murphy, who preceded her in death in 1995.

As Roland grew his construction and insurance business, Helen ran the household with, eventually, ten children. In these lean years, Helen supplemented their income by working at H.C. Prange Co. and selling in-home products like Avon, Shaklee and Home Interiors. This allowed the children to receive a Catholic education, which she felt was extremely important.

Throughout the school years, Helen readily volunteered for parish work. Among other things, she helped at St. Mary of the Angels roller rink, taught CCD and Bible school, supervised youth Cursillo weekends and was a lector and lay distributor at Resurrection Church.

In 1964 and 1965, Helen and Roland hosted two foreign exchange students, Wolfgang Steinmann from Germany and Mario Coto from Costa Rica. The family is enriched by their lifetime friendship. Helen was particularly proud to help sponsor a large Vietnamese family to the U.S. in 1977, allowing them to live with her family until they could relocate.

Helen arranged many memorable family get-togethers at holidays. She particularly loved decorating and candymaking at Christmas. Circling with the grandchildren to "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" was a cherished Christmas tradition.

Helen treasured the friendships she made throughout her life and was deeply loyal to her friends. Helen was a proud person, but not pretentious. She never took herself too seriously, nor did she ever forget their humble, early-married life.

Her favorite activities included canning pickles at the "farm," playing gin, solving crossword puzzles and watching QVC.

More than 50 grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be keeping their beloved Grandmother in their thoughts and prayers.

She is survived by her ten children and their spouses, Michael (Nancy); Patrick (Ann); Judy; Steve (Dawn); Sue (KW) Ray; Sherry (Pat) Parrish; Linda (Jeff) Gleason; Connie (Tom) Williamson; Joseph (Ginny); and Tony (Karla).

She is further survived by her in-laws, Kip and Delores Murphy; Ron and Deanna Murphy; and Carol and Joe Challe. In addition, many nieces and nephews will remember her fondly.

In eternity, she has joined her parents; brothers, Roland and Gordy; her sister, Yvonne; and their spouses, Betty, Babe and Duke.

The family would like to thank Unity Hospice for their incredible kindness and support during Helen's startling illness.

In lieu of flowers, Helen encouraged your support for the homeless and for Resurrection Catholic Parish. Funeral arrangements, that she thoroughly prepared, are being handled by Ryan Funeral Home.

A body's ache is laid to rest. Helen Murphy has joined the Best.
