Beaudin-Graupman, Candice

11:17 PM, Mar. 14, 2011  |  

 

 

July 1, 1955 -

March 12 , 2011

On March 12, 2011, Candice Beaudin-Graupman went home to her Lord and Savior and was healed for eternity.

She was born in Two Rivers, Wis., on July 1, 1955.

As she was growing up, Candy often served with her family running the Two Rivers A&W restaurant.

A 1973 graduate of Roncalli High School in Two Rivers, she would go on to attend Carroll College in Waukesha, Wis., and graduate in 1978, with a degree in Social Work.

During her summers while in college, Candy came home to help run the Two Rivers A&W, and later also helped manage the Manitowoc, Wis., A&W that her mother had purchased.

Candy began her working career in social work first in the Manitowoc and then the Waukesha departments of social services.

She married Mark Graupman on Sept. 27, 1980, was his best friend and soul mate, and they relocated to Reedsburg, Wis., in 1982.

During the 1980s she and Mark attended and served at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Reedsburg as God began working more earnestly in their lives.

They were blessed with two sons, Justin, born on Nov. 21, 1989, and Brandon, born on Feb. 18, 1991.

In July, 1993, a car accident with a drunk driver killed Brandon, injured Justin and Candy, and forever changed our lives. Dedicated to making good come from Bandon's short life here on earth, Candy led efforts to form the first chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in Sauk County, became its first president, and served in that capacity for many years.

She also encouraged Mark to open up their home to foster children. The foster home experience brought as many as seven children at a time into our home on a short-term basis, and also brought our wonderful daughter, Clorissa, into our lives. In 1996, with the adoption of Clorissa, our family was once again complete. During this time God continued to work powerfully in Candy's life, leading her to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

In May 2000, Candy was diagnosed with breast cancer and another new chapter began in her life. After her family started to attend Walnut Hill Bible Church in Baraboo in 2001, Candy would not let breast cancer stop her from continuing to be a wonderful mother, wife, and servant in the church. She would go on to serve the Lord and the church as a Sunday School teacher, AWANA leader, financial secretary, prayer warrior, and encourager. As Sunday School teacher and AWANA leader she would lead many children to the Lord. Her battle with cancer served to expand the circle of people she would meet and to whom she would be a testimony.

Candy is further survived by her mother, Gladys Beaudin, and her sister, Joyce Haden, both of Two Rivers, Wisconsin. She was also preceded in death by her father, Eugene Beaudin. She is survived by many other family and friend

Services for Candice Beaudin-Graupman will be conducted on, Saturday, March 19, 2011, at 12 p.m. in Walnut Hill Bible Church in Baraboo, Wis., with Pastor David Hutchens officiating. Burial will be at 4 p.m. at Calvary Cemetery in Reedsburg. Visitation will be held on Saturday from 10 a.m. until time of service at the church.

Farber Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements.

Prichard, Otis B.

10:50 PM, Mar. 16, 2011  |  

 

 

Otis B. Prichard, 88, Green Bay, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 12, 2011. He was born on June 25, 1922, to the late Ernest and Lessie (Baker) Prichard in Onawa, Iowa. On May 12, 1943, he married the former Louise Lorenger.

Otis enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1942, received his pilot wings with the class of 43D at Luke Field in Arizona, and became a member of the 8th Air Force, 96 Bomb Group. He was then stationed in England and flew multiple bombing missions in a B17 Bomber until he was shot down in the North Sea in July, 1943 and captured by the German navy. For the duration of the war Otis was a P.O.W. For 22 months, Otis was in several prisoner of war camps in Germany and Poland, including Stalag Luft III, until he was liberated by General Patton. Part of his time as a P.O.W. took place in the camp that inspired the movie "The Great Escape" where Otis helped to dig the now famous tunnels before being transferred to another camp.

Upon returning home, the couple settled in Sioux City, Iowa, and Otis began working for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad Company as a Civil Engineer; he was then transferred to Green Bay in 1950. He always said that the transfer to Green Bay was the best move he ever made.

Vissers, Kenneth H.

10:34 AM, Mar. 18, 2011  |  

 

 

Kenneth H. Vissers, 75, De Pere, died Wednesday, March 16, 2011, at a local hospital.

He was born on Dec. 19, 1936, to the late Martin and Nellie (Coenen) Vissers.

He attended St. Mary's Grade School and graduated from De Pere High School in June, 1955.

He then enlisted in the U.S. Army and was sent to Ft. Knox, Ky., for training. He served his country as a tank mechanic, and after spending time in Germany, was discharged in June, 1958.

On Nov. 10, 1967, his life changed forever. Ken was severely injured while working in a paper machine at Nicolet Paper Company. He was paralyzed from the chest down and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He was treated for his injuries at St. Vincent Hospital for three and a half months. He then transferred to Craig Rehabilitation Hospital near Denver, where he learned how to cope with the daily challenges of being a paraplegic.

Nine months after this injury, he returned to work at Nicolet as a maintenance scheduler, a position created for him. He was a productive and loyal employee and retired at age 65 in 2001.

In his youth, Ken enjoyed playing football and basketball. He loved following the Packers, spending time on his computer (we will all miss his emails), and playing cards. He looked forward to the weekly visits from friends and relatives to play cribbage. Ken was a member of the De Pere Men's Club and enjoyed socializing with other members.

On March 24, 1970, he married Anne C. DeTennis at St. Mary's Church in De Pere. She preceded him in death on Feb. 28, 2007.

Throughout their 37 years of marriage, Ken's primary caregiver was his devoted and loving wife. Since Anne's death four years ago, Ken's determination to remain independent was a source of pride and an inspiration to all who knew him.

He is survived by his brothers, Howard and his wife. Marilyn Vissers, De Pere; Don and his wife, Ann Vissers, Bellevue and the Villages, Fla.; and his sister, Betty Clancy, Greenleaf. Further survived by brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Gary and Kaye Jadin, Green Bay; and brother-in-law, John Kautzer, De Pere; many nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Harold; sister, Dorothy and her husband, Hank Gerke; brother-in-law, Jim Clancy. Also by brothers-in-law, Darold DeTennis and Paul DeTennis; and sisters-in-law, Faye DeTennis Kautzer and Patricia Rose DeTennis.

Ken was fortunate to have wonderful neighbors, Vern and Sue, Bob and Marie, Joe and Karen, John and Debbie, always willing to help when needed.

Family and friends may call on Saturday, March 19, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Community, Pope John the XXIII Circle, off Sportsman Drive, town of Ledgeview. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at the church with the Rev. John H. Harper officiating. Entombment in Allouez Mausoleum. Cotter Funeral Home, De Pere, is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be expressed to the Vissers family at www.cotterfuneralhome.com.

The family wishes to thank Interim Healthcare, especially Jamie, De Pere Rescue Squad, the doctors, nurses, and entire staff of St. Vincent Hospital for the excellent care provided to Ken. Special thanks to Carol Sue and Paulie for their constant care and concern.

Servais, DDS, Dr. William (Bill)

7:25 PM, Mar. 19, 2011  |  

 

 

Dr. William (Bill) Servais, DDS died on Jan. 25, 2011, in Mazatlan, Mexico. Bill was born in Green Bay, on Aug. 21, 1942, attended Premontre High School, St. Norbert College, and Marquette Dental School. After earning his DDS he served as a dentist in the Army in Fort Meade, Md., for four years, and then settled in Bellingham, Wash. He married Corrinne Thomas of Green Bay, in January of 1967. While living in Bellingham, Bill became an avid sailor. He sailed and raced his San Juan 24 named "Gwahir," winning the North American Championship in 1984 and placed in the top three many other times. Upon his retirement in 1994, he sold that boat and bought a 42 foot, two-masted, gaff-rigged schooner named "Migrant." With it, over the course of the next several years, he sailed down to South America and then West across the Pacific, to Australia and then the Malaysian Peninsula. He chose to sell the boat there, rather than chance the next leg of the voyage toward the African coast. During this time, he continued his dentistry practice. He spent half a year working at a hospital in the American Samoan, four seasons as the dentist at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, and a couple of seasons in Arizona and in Northwestern Washington as a dentist on Indian Reservations. He recently purchased a new boat to replace Migrant, and was sailing in Mexico in the Sea of Cortez with his uncle. It was while they were in port that he suffered a heart attack and died.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence and Alice Servais; and one nephew, Andrew Hohl. He is survived by his former wife, Corrine, Bellingham, Wash.; his son, Mike (Amie) Servais, his daughter, Nicola (Tim) Weiss; and three granddaughters, Teagan and Arden Servais and Cecelia Weiss, all of Sammamish Wash. Additionally, he is survived by his siblings, John (Janice) Servais, Bellingham, Wash.; Jeannette Servais, Luxemburg; Tina Servais, Green Bay; James Servais, Green Bay; Margaret (Tom) Washa, Middleton; Mary (Craig) Servais, Seattle, Wash.; Richard (Kathryn) Servais, Elkhart Lake; and Helen (Doyle) Curtis, Green Bay; along with many nieces, nephews and other relatives.
