Krouth, John A.C. "Jack"

February 2, 2011

If he had written his own obituary, John A.C. "Jack" Krouth would surely have started with: "When I was a little girl ..." A master storyteller, the consummate family man, and a friend to all, Jack passed away peacefully on Monday, Jan. 31, 2011.

Born Aug. 22, 1923, in Green Bay, to the late Robert and Violet (Maes) Krouth, Jack grew up helping his family run their grocery and hardware stores. During the Great Depression, he did what he had to do to survive, including riding the rails. His tireless drive to support his family and help his neighbors remains an inspiring legacy to all who knew him.

After a young life of high jinks and adventure, Jack married the girl of his dreams, Thecla "Teckie" Safford. "Honey Bun" stuck with him through thick and thin for over 64 years and was his rock-solid companion right up to his last breath. Together, they raised six children.

By trade, he was a machinist for the Chicago & North Western Railroad for nearly 40 years. By hobby, he was everyone's go-to handy man. From lawn mowers to steam engines, there was nothing he couldn't fix. He designed and built playground equipment for his children and dug a basement by hand. During his "retirement," he restored a Model T Ford and was the perpetual employee of the month at Griffin Industries. He made excellent soup and was also an expert in napping, which he began as a young man and perfected in his golden years.

Jack was always eager to help others, though he rarely asked for help himself. He had a knack for putting people at ease and making them laugh. He loved playing bridge and traveling with his in-laws, the Saffords. His 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren will never forget his tall tales about chickens and his backyard squirrel, Skinner. They loved Jack's many wind-up toys and his encouragement of mischief. And they never walked away from their grandpa without a dollar or two in their pockets.

He is survived by his wife, Teckie; his brother, Kenneth Krouth; his children, Lynn (Bert) Gagnon, Thomas (Linda) Krouth, Michael Krouth, Terrance (Christine) Krouth, Kevin (Debra) Krouth, and Tina Krouth.

Blessed with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, he maintained a unique and precious relationship with each one of them, including David Gagnon; Kecia (Michael) Chronowski and their children, Caleb, Courtney, and Cole; Jonathan (Kelly) Krouth and their children, Alexandria and Morgan; Dawn (Pat) Gorski and their children, Cullen and Aubrie; Kim Krouth and Ben Feifarek; Heidi (Troy) Handrich and their children, Bennett, Owen, and Madelin; Missy Krouth and Pat Chelmo and their children, Sullivan, Liam, and Connall; Patrick Krouth and Yesenia Moreno and their son, Maddox; Jason Krouth and Misty Randall; Andrea Krouth and Ben Horner and their son, Dominick; Kelley (Katy) Krouth; Ben Krouth and Mandy Morse; Lauren Krouth; and Katie Krouth.

Jack was preceded in death by his parents; and four siblings, Robert Krouth, Mary Margaret Ledvina, Lucille Van Laanen, and Richard Krouth.

Please join us in celebrating the life of Jack. Friends may call at Blaney Funeral Home, 1521 Shawano Ave., from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday (Today). A Parish Wake Service will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday (Today). Friends may also call at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 413 St. John Street, from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday at the church with the Rev. John Girotti officiating. Jack will be laid to rest in the mausoleum at Allouez Chapel Mausoleum. To send online condolences, please go to www.BlaneyFuner alHome.com.

Memorial contributions can be made to St. Jude Children's Hospital or the homeless shelter at St. John the Evangelist Church in his name.

Jack's family would like to thank Dr. Jason Hoppe, Unity Hospice, and the staff at the Jack and Engrid Meng Residence.

Right up to the end, Jack made light of his inevitable end. "I'm on my way out of here," he said to his grandson, Jon. "Toodles!"

Lange, Ruth Ruby

February 2, 2011

Ruth Ruby Lange, 90, Denmark, passed from this life into the loving arms of her Savior on Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011, at a local hospital.

Ruth was born on Oct. 18, 1920, in Henrysville, Wis., to Reinhold and Tena (Yager) Valentine, the youngest of four children.

In the early years of their marriage, the couple farmed in Tisch Mills, later moving to Fontenoy, where they experimented with different types of farming before converting their farm into an egg production business, the Shady Lane Egg Farm. In her role of delivering the eggs to numerous businesses in Green Bay, Ruth was affectionately dubbed "the naughty lady of Shady Lane."

Ruth enjoyed summer weekends entertaining friends and playing cards at the family cottage in Townsend. She treasured each moment spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who will always remember "Grandma Ruthie" for her endless patience, unconditional love, card games, and lavish chicken dinners. In recent years, Ruth especially enjoyed her Thursday night outings to Schuster's. Ruth's kind and gentle spirit and her insistence on putting the needs of others ahead of her own earned her the love and respect of all who knew her. She will be sadly missed by family, friends, and neighbors.

Ruth is survived by two sons and one daughter-in-law, Ralph (Leanne) Lange and Ronald Lange, Green Bay; four grandchildren, Vicki (Mike) Radue, De Pere; Wendy (Steve) Schilling, Maple Plain, Minn.; Brett (Teri) Lange, and Lance Lange, all of Green Bay; 11 great-grandchildren, Matthew (Sara) Zeitler, Nina Radue, Megan, Zachary, and Tianna Schilling, Noah, Elijah, Jacob, Natalie, and Kenji Lange, and Peyton Lange; three step-great-grandchildren, Mike (Sarah) Radue and their daughter Sophia; Sara (John) Kocourek and their children, Corbin and Ruby; and Nathan Radue.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established in Ruth's name. Online condolences may be expressed to Ruth's family at www.cotterfuneralhome.com. Knutson-Cotter Funeral Home, Denmark, is assisting with arrangements.

Ruth's family wishes to thank her wonderful friends and neighbors in Denmark, whose loving care and concern enabled Grandma Ruthie to remain in her own home. Thanks, too, to the very special staff of Unity Palliative Care. May God bless you all!

Schumacher, Rosella Martha "Rose"

February 6, 2011

Rosella Martha "Rose" Schumacher was born into eternal life on Feb. 4, 2011, at the age of 75. She was born on July 11, 1935, to Lawrence and Johanna Du Frane in Kimberly, Wis., where she lived in her early years. On Oct. 27, 1956, she married Ronald (Ron) Verstegen at Holy Name Catholic Church in Kimberly. Together they had five children. In March 1972, Ron passed away. A half-mile or so away Marvin (Marv) Schumacher had also lost his mate Betsy (Van Zeeland) to cancer. Rose and Marv eventually dated, and on Oct. 22, 1976, Rose and her five married Marv and his eight, again at Holy Name Church.

With abundant room in their hearts but not so much room in the house on Edwards Street in Combined Locks, they set to building a new home in Little Rapids (De Pere), expanding later as the number of grandchildren grew. Rose was a compassionate listener. She was exceptionally hospitable, often inviting guests to sit themselves down a while, and maybe gather at the table to play some cards, Scrabble or some other game. Rose had a warm heart; family members and friends were naturally drawn to her to share both triumphs and challenges — to receive hugs, congratulations, tears, and maybe a little bit of advice here and there. She was a sort of glue that kept people together.

Prior to her illness, Rose loved to play golf. She also enjoyed singing and had directed and sung in various church choirs throughout her life. She took up quilting after becoming an "empty nester" and created quilts for many family members, as heirlooms to commeremorate weddings, graduations,etc. It seems there was always something to celebrate!

Rose is survived by her loving husband, Marv Schumacher; children, Tom and Lois Schumacher, De Pere, and their children, John, Ben, Betsy and Elizabeth; Mike and Brenda Schumacher, Sturgeon Bay, and their children, Nichole, Matt, Kate and Luke; Sue and Jim Gage, Cincinnati, O.H., and their children, Heidi, Jennifer, Lisa and Max; Sally and Tom Schmidt, De Pere, and their children, Andy, Adam, Mike, Shane, Brian, Amanda, and Becky; Rick and Deb Verstegen, Appleton, and their children, Lindsay, Amanda and Bryan; Jean Schumacher, Livermore, Calif., and her children, Dedra and Erin; Renee and Joe Wyngaard, Weyauwega, and their children, Jenny, Laura, Brooke and Tyler; Regina (Gigi) and Greg Johnson, Manawa, and their children, Emily and Mitchell; Paul and Lisa Schumacher, Racine, and their children, Joe, Sara, Brittney and Henry; Carol Schumacher (Mike Jandrin), De Pere and their children, Crystal, Betsy, Tracy and Dana; Roy and Kathy Verstegen, Kimberly, and their children, Lexy, Jake and Monica; Greg and Greta Schumacher, Shorter, AL and their son Nathan; and Ruth Verstegen, Neenah. Rose is also survived by 32 great-grandchildren and ten great-great-grandchildren. She took delight in every one of them!

Surviving brothers and sisters are Edward (Sonny) and Catherine Du Frane, Delores Boudry, Agnes Smarzinski, Carol and Lyle Hietpas, Marion Du Frane, and June Du Frane. Helping to prepare the way for Rose in Paradise were her parents, her first husband, Ron Verstegen; granddaughter, Carrie Schumacher, and siblings Frances (Carl) Zwiers, Levi (Mitzi) Du Frane, Harold Du Frane, Lawrence Du Frane, Myrtle (Herman) Sauer, and Reuben (Eileen) Du Frane.

Friends may call at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Family, Suburban Drive at Lourdes Avenue, De Pere, on Tuesday Feb. 8, 2011, from 4 to 8 p.m. A Parish Prayer Service will be held at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday to end the Visitation.

Indeed we will miss the wonderful warmth and love of our mother, grandmother and friend, but WE SHALL MEET AGAIN, at a table the Lord has set.

Schumacher, Rosella Martha "Rose"

February 6, 2011

Rosella Martha "Rose" Schumacher was born into eternal life on Feb. 4, 2011, at the age of 75. She was born on July 11, 1935, to Lawrence and Johanna Du Frane in Kimberly, Wis., where she lived in her early years. On Oct. 27, 1956, she married Ronald (Ron) Verstegen at Holy Name Catholic Church in Kimberly. Together they had five children. In March 1972, Ron passed away. A half-mile or so away Marvin (Marv) Schumacher had also lost his mate Betsy (Van Zeeland) to cancer. Rose and Marv eventually dated, and on Oct. 22, 1976, Rose and her five married Marv and his eight, again at Holy Name Church.

With abundant room in their hearts but not so much room in the house on Edwards Street in Combined Locks, they set to building a new home in Little Rapids (De Pere), expanding later as the number of grandchildren grew. Rose was a compassionate listener. She was exceptionally hospitable, often inviting guests to sit themselves down a while, and maybe gather at the table to play some cards, Scrabble or some other game. Rose had a warm heart; family members and friends were naturally drawn to her to share both triumphs and challenges-to receive hugs, congratulations, tears, and maybe a little bit of advice here and there. She was a sort of glue that kept people together.

Prior to her illness, Rose loved to play golf. She also enjoyed singing and had directed and sung in various church choirs throughout her life. She took up quilting after becoming an "empty nester" and created quilts for many family members, as heirlooms to commeremorate weddings, graduations,etc. It seems there was always something to celebrate!

Rose is survived by her loving husband, Marv Schumacher; children, Tom and Lois Schumacher, De Pere, and their children, John, Ben, Betsy and Elizabeth; Mike and Brenda Schumacher, Sturgeon Bay, and their children, Nichole, Matt, Kate and Luke; Sue and Jim Gage, Cincinnati, O.H., and their children, Heidi, Jennifer, Lisa and Max; Sally and Tom Schmidt, De Pere, and their children, Andy, Adam, Mike, Shane, Brian, Amanda, and Becky; Rick and Deb Verstegen, Appleton, and their children, Lindsay, Amanda and Bryan; Jean Schumacher, Livermore, Calif., and her children, Dedra and Erin; Renee and Joe Wyngaard, Weyauwega, and their children, Jenny, Laura, Brooke and Tyler; Regina (Gigi) and Greg Johnson, Manawa, and their children, Emily and Mitchell; Paul and Lisa Schumacher, Racine, and their children, Joe, Sara, Brittney and Henry; Carol Schumacher (Mike Jandrin), De Pere and their children, Crystal, Betsy, Tracy and Dana; Roy and Kathy Verstegen, Kimberly, and their children, Lexy, Jake and Monica; Greg and Greta Schumacher, Shorter, AL and their son Nathan; and Ruth Verstegen, Neenah. Rose is also survived by 32 great-grandchildren and ten great-great-grandchildren. She took delight in every one of them!

Surviving brothers and sisters are Edward (Sonny) and Catherine Du Frane, Delores Boudry, Agnes Smarzinski, Carol and Lyle Hietpas, Marion Du Frane, and June Du Frane. Helping to prepare the way for Rose in Paradise were her parents, her first husband, Ron Verstegen; granddaughter, Carrie Schumacher, and siblings Frances (Carl) Zwiers, Levi (Mitzi) Du Frane, Harold Du Frane, Lawrence Du Frane, Myrtle (Herman) Sauer, and Reuben (Eileen) Du Frane.

Friends may call at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Family, Suburban Drive at Lourdes Avenue, De Pere, on Tuesday Feb. 8, 2011, from 4 to 8 p.m. A Parish Prayer Service will be held at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday to end the Visitation. Calling hours will continue after 9 a.m. Wednesday until time of service. Mass of Christian Burial will be concelebrated at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Church with Monsignor John Schuh, Father Tim Shillcox, O. Praem., and Father John H. Harper, officiating. Burial in Holy Name of Jesus Cemetery, Kimberly. RYAN FUNERAL HOME of De Pere is assisting the family with arrangements. Please visit www.ryanfh.com to send on line condolences to the Schumacher and Verstegen families.

On Rose's behalf, the family wishes to thank all the wonderful people at Unity Hospice; they were a constant support when Rose and the family really needed it. Also thank you to the many people who visited and comforted Rose as her illness progressed. Indeed we will miss the wonderful warmth and love of our mother, grandmother and friend, but WE SHALL MEET AGAIN, at a table the Lord has set.

Eland, Mary

February 13, 2011

Mary Eland, 88, passed on from this world on Feb. 11, 2011, while at home with her family at her side. She went to be in a better place with the Lord and her beloved husband of 69 years, Michael L. Eland, who has been waiting for her arrival in Heaven since his passing 16 months and six days ago.

Mary was born in Huron, S.D., on Sept. 13, 1922, to Carl and Julia (Clarambeau) Goettsch.

The family moved to a farm in Rossiere in 1926. Mary met her soulmate, Mike, as a youngster, and later they were married on Oct. 12, 1940, at St. Matthews Church, Algoma, Wis.

They were blessed with six biological children, one adopted daughter and well over 100 foster children that they loved very much.

Mary was a very loving and giving person.

She never took, but always gave whatever she could to all who were in need.

Mary was an excellent cook and baker. She made really good homemade breads several times a week when her kids were young. Her pastries and sweet rolls were "to live for."

In her later years she would sometimes let others do her cooking for her. On weekends she especially enjoyed an order of biscuits and gravy from Sister's Cafe.

Besides her "therapy trips" to the casinos, Mary enjoyed bowling for many years in several leagues, Bingo, cards and trips up north to the cabin where she always enjoyed visiting over a few beers with her many friends. She also was known to shoot a mean game of pool.

Mary was an excellent seamstress until she lost her eyesight.

Mike and Mary started Eland Electric in 1958, which is still in business today.

Together they also received a B'nai Brith Award in 1977 for their efforts to promote the cause of brotherhood and better the understanding for mankind.

It was given to them in recognition for the many foster children they cared for as well as the Vietnamese family they sponsored and helped to resettle in Green Bay.

In her own words, Mary was a "tough old bird," however, she wasn't able to complete her "bucket list" in her 88 years of life.

She still wanted to sky-dive, bungie jump and dance on a bar "again." She also wished for another trip to the cabin so she could make the rounds to see her friends in the taverns, but her health wouldn't allow it.

No matter where Mary went, she met strangers who quickly became friends. She was full of life, loved to laugh and always had a spring in her step.

She is survived by three sons and three daughters, James (Jim) and Carolyn Eland, Green Bay; Mary Ann and Bruno Richert, Gillett; Sharon (Sherry) and Bill Bergeron, Madison; Michael (Rick) and Becky (Rebecca) Eland, Green Bay; Terrance (Terry) and Shelly Eland, Green Bay; Pam Eland-Romuald and Dick Romuald, Green Bay; and special nephew, Jerome (Jay) Goettsch, Payette, Idaho. She is also survived by three sisters, Margaret (Willard) Johnson, Spearfish, S.D.; Lucy (Paul) Shultz, Green Bay; Bonita (Clifford) Hoff, Sioux Falls, S.D.; 14 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Julia Goettsch; husband, Michael L. Eland; adopted daughter, Debbie M. Eland; grandson, Paul Belanger; great-grandson, Ricky Gretzon; brothers, Francis and Charles; and sister, Lois; as well as many of their foster children, nieces and nephews.

Friends may call at the Proko-Wall Funeral Home, 1630 E. Mason St., on Wednesday from 3 to 8 p.m. Wake Service will be at 7:30 p.m. Visitation will continue on Thursday from 10 to 11 a.m. at Nicolet Memorial Gardens, 2770 Bay Settlement Road. Funeral service 11 a.m. Thursday at the mausoleum with John Belanger officiating. Entombment at Nicolet Memorial Gardens. Online condolences may be sent to the Eland family at www.prokowall.com.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established in Mary's name.

The family would like to thank the staff of 4th floor Bellin Hospital and especially their temporarily adopted brother and sisters, Dr. John MacDonald and Helen and Michelle from Unity Hospice, for all of their care and concern. Also a special thank you to the Home Instead personnel.

Dahlke, Marilyn (Huguet)

February 21, 2011

God broke our hearts on February 18, 2011. He proved to us that he always takes the best first. God called our beautiful Marilyn Helen (Huguet) Dahlke, age 70, home to heaven. God blessed the world on Aug. 2, 1940, when Marilyn was born to Robert and Marie Huguet. She attended St. Philip Grade School and graduated from St. Joseph Academy in 1958. She was the oldest of eight children. Marilyn set an example of unselfish giving and sweetness that her siblings still cling to. Marilyn married Robert Dahlke on June 3, 1961, at St. Philip Church. She was a wonderful mother to their three children, Lisa, David and Leann. Their family worked hard and enjoyed the good times. She especially loved her flowers. She would spend hours looking for "something new" and finding unusual plants. She always managed to keep them alive. She and Bob spent a lot of time cooking and canning but she had to be sure she gave it away to family and friends. Marilyn loved people. She was employed at Bally's, Impire and Home-Town Coordinators. She met many friends through her employment and enjoyed visiting with them. Another love of Marilyn's was her faith and her church. Her greatest pride and joy were her grandchildren. They were like precious jewels she held close to her heart. She wouldn't miss a baseball game, basketball game or football game and kept everyone informed about all their activities. She once said "being their grandmother is such a privilege." They loved her and will miss her for forever.

Marilyn is survived by her husband of almost fifty years, Robert Dahlke; her son, David (Joanne); her daughters, Lisa Mc Donald and Leann (Gary) Jahnke. She is also survived by her precious grandchildren, Kyle Mc Donald and special friend Jess, Kristen Mc Donald, Coltin, Connor and Christopher Dahlke, Matthew and Michael Gilson and Jonah Jahnke. Also surviving her are her siblings, Richard (Shirley) Huguet, Janice Shernak, Thomas (Bonnie) Huguet, Linda (Ken) Peterson, Kathy (Dennis) Nuthals, Julie (Mike) Brunette and Harry (Martha) Huguet. Marilyn is also survived by her brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Chuck (Mary) Dahlke and Mike (Beanie) Dahlke, Adeline (Dale) Corbeille, Mary Ellen (James) Allen and Bertha (Ralph) Hoerchler. She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews who respected and enjoyed her so much.

Preceding her in death and waiting for her with open arms are her parents, Robert and Marie Huguet (Hamernik); her step father, Antone Hamernik; her father-in-law, Orrin Dahlke; and her mother-in-law, Agnes Dahlke.

Friends may call at Proko-Wall Funeral Home, 1630 E.

Tremblay, Rev. Eugene A., O.M.I.

February 23, 2011

Rev. Eugene A. Tremblay O.M.I., age 97, of 1614 S. 17th Street, Manitowoc, died Sunday evening, February 20, 2011 at Shady Lane Nursing Care Center, Manitowoc.

A baby boy was born to Alexander and Magdalene Tremblay on July 26, 1913 in Cornell, Wisconsin, the family home. This child, welcomed into his family and the family of God, was given the name Eugene Alexander in Baptism. When Eugene reached the age of eleven, the family moved to Ladysmith, Wisconsin, in 1924, where he and the other children in the family attended St. Mary's Parochial Grade School operated by The Order of Servite Sisters. In 1927, the young fourteen-year-old Eugene accompanied his older brother, Russell to St. Henry's Minor Seminary in Belleville, Illinois to begin classes, which would lead them to the Major Seminary and then with the grace of God lead them on to the priesthood. After five years of study at St. Henry's, Eugene was accepted and entered into the Oblate Novitiate in Mission, Texas, in 1932 to begin his religious life studying the Oblate Rules. At the end of the novitiate in 1933, Fr. entered DeMazenod Scholasticate the Major Seminary in San Antonio, Texas — studying Dogma, Moral Theology, and Canon Law. On June the 11th 1938 Bishop Henry Althoff, Bishop of St. Peter's Cathedral in Belleville, Illinois Ordained Eugene and his classmates, Charles Nebel and Edwin Guild. Fr. Eugene celebrated his First Holy Mass the next day at St. Henry's Parish in Belleville. He then returned to Ladysmith to celebrate his First Solemn Mass in the parish church at St. Mary's. All of his family — his parents, brothers, and sisters — were present.

From 1939-42 Fr. Eugene was teaching at St. Henry's College. In 1940, he accepted the position as Prefect of Discipline and kept that position for the next two years while continuing to teach. In 1942, Fr. went to Colona and Lacon, Illinois, to substitute for a brief spell and continue his missionary work.

Fr. Eugene chose to join the U.S. Military services in The Army Air Corp. In 1943. For four years, he served our country ministering to our service members and their families in the United States, Guam, and the Philippines. He attended and graduated from the Chaplain School of Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass. Fr. received an honorable discharge from the Army Air Corp. in 1947 and returned to St. Henry's in Belleville, Illinois as Assistant Pastor and Professor of religion for the minor seminary. He was appointed to the U.S. Officers Reserve Corp. until 1951. In 1949, Fr. traveled with the Oblate Mission Band. Their home base was Campus, Illinois, near Kankakee, Illinois. The Mission Band priests traveled to various states giving Forty-hour devotions and Missions.Then came the Korean Conflict. In 1951, having been in the United States Officers Reserve Corps., Fr. was called back into Military Service as a Chaplain for the United States Air Force. This tour of duty took Fr. Eugene throughout the United States, Asia, Europe and the Arctic. Therefore, for the next sixteen years Fr. ministered to thousands of our men and women, who were serving our country, taking care of their spiritual needs. Again Fr. attended and graduated from the U.S. Air Force Chaplains School, Ft. Slocum, New York in 1951. In 1967, having served his country for a total of 24 years, first in the Army Air Corp and then in the United States Air Force, and having reached the rank of Colonel, Chaplain Eugene Alexander Tremblay retired.

After a well deserved rest, Fr. Eugene went back with the Oblate Mission Band in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1968 assisting in various parishes with weekend Masses, Retreats, Forty-hour devotions, and other duties. In 1969, Fr. Eugene accepted an assignment as pastor at St. Mary of the Lake, Baileys Harbor, and St. Michael's Mission in Jacksonport, located in Door County, Wisconsin. He remained there for the next 18 years until his second retirement. Fr. Eugene then resided in Belleville, Illinois at the Oblate of Mary Immaculate Shrine from 1987 to 1992. From 1992 to 2005 Fr. Eugene was again back doing his priestly duties, assisting Fr. Tom Wojciechowski O.F.M., at St. Mary's Home, Manitowoc, whenever needed. Eventually he was saying Mass every weekend for the people there, after Fr. Tom had left to become Pastor at St. Mary of the Angels Parish, Green Bay. This lasted for 13 years. Hence, in April 2005, at the great age of 91 years and 9 months, Fr. Eugene, the Colonel, finally retired.

Survivors include two brothers: Cecil P. Tremblay, Fairchild, WI; John S. Tremblay, Chicago Heights, Illinois; two sisters: Sister Mary Celestine Tremblay O.S.M., Sister Mary Eugenia Tremblay O.S.M, both of Wheeling, Illinois; special family friend and 22 year caregiver to Fr. Eugene: Helen Dunderdale-Hall, Manitowoc. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was also preceded in death by a brother: Rev. Russell J. Tremblay, O.M.I; a sister: Luella Tremblay and two sisters-in-law: Veronica and Marian Tremblay.

Funeral Services will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, February 28, 2011, at Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, Belleville, Illinois. Officiating at the Mass of Christian Burial will be the Rev. James Taylor O.M.I. with burial to follow at St. Henry's Oblate Community Cemetery, Belleville, Illinois.

The Pfeffer Funeral Home, Manitowoc, is assisting the family with funeral arrangements.

I wish to thank the entire nursing staff at Shady Lane for the loving care Father Eugene received the 9 months of his stay with you. In the good times, and the bad times, when he was in so much pain. Special thanks to the fourth floor staff. I will never be able to thank you enough. God Bless each and everyone of you. Additionally, thanks to very special friends: Ron and Sheri Gauger, Joan Holt, Jim & Theresa Falk, Marge Gordon and Fr. Richard Klingeisen. Helen Dunderdale-Hall.

Lanser (nee Wegner), 'Vita

9:49 PM, Feb. 23, 2011  |  

Lovita Mae WEGNER LANSER, age 81, died suddenly of a stroke on Monday, February 21, 2011, at Appleton's St. Elizabeth's Hospital. 'Vita was geboren Aug 19, 1929, in Whitewater the second of seven children of Oscar WEGNER and Marie EITING. The growing family moved from place to place — Rochester, Ladysmith, Delavan, Palmyra — struggling to survive the Great Depression. Her later childhood was shaped by life on the family farm on County 'G' near Rhinelander and by tiny Pine Grove School. As a teenager she joined the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother as Sister Mary Bonita, became degreed as a Registered Nurse, and headed a neonatal unit for premature infants. These "little ones" as she called them would be her passion and expertise in a career that spanned three decades. She left the Order in 1968 to begin a new life — a major highlight of which was her marriage to Nicholas (Nic) LANSER on February 28, 1981, at St. Thomas More Church. She worked as a nurse at Theda-Clark and Appleton Medical Center, and later 'kept the books' for a commercial cleaning business she and Nic founded and grew.

Family was everything to her, and she became mom, gramma and great-gramma to Nic's children and the generations that followed. Their love for her was obvious as we gathered around her bed that fateful day as she slowly slipped from this world.

Still living are her husband; his three children: Daniel LANSER of New Holstein [children: Josh and Nicholas]; Gary (Sheri) LANSER of Tampa [children: Jesse (Tamara), Jason, Gary Jr. (Danielle), and John (Emily) STUCKART]; and Wendy (Lee) SAMP of Appleton [children: Heather, Joe (Michelle), Jared (Danielle) and Nicole]; a sister, Trudy (Wilfred) JENKINS of Pelican Lake; three brothers: Philip of Morristown, Minnesota, Donald (Judy) of Rhinelander, and Andrew (Mary) of Winneconne. Vita is survived by 21 great-grandchildren and scads of nieces and nephews.

Those who died before her include: her parents, brothers Richard and Thomas, and sisters-in-law, June CLEVELAND WEGNER and Mary Ann DAVISON WEGNER.
