Haegele, Gerald John "Jag"

8:03 PM, Jul. 19, 2011  |  
 

 

Gerald John "Jag" Haegele, 81, Algoma, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 15, 2011. Born on Oct. 22, 1929, to John and Clara (Shillin) Haegele, he will be remembered for his unwavering passion, dedication and love for his hometown of Algoma, Wis. On Aug. 6, 1955, Jag married Isabel Hanson, the mother of his six children. His life's journey took many twists and turns, but the love he possessed for his family remained deeply rooted and constant until the very end.

A kind, humble and fun-loving man with a great sense of humor, Jag was an avid sports enthusiast and quite the athlete in his younger days. He entered the U.S. Army on March 6, 1951 and proudly served his country until Feb. 21, 1953. An entrepreneur, self-taught artist, promoter and visionary, he may be best recognized for the sign and billboard company he founded over 60 years ago, now known as "Jag Outdoor Advertising". His heart especially reached out to "Mom & Pop" businesses and he worked tirelessly to promote and help them succeed.

Jag possessed an unbelievable work ethic, positive attitude and drive to inspire, create and promote businesses and tourism throughout northeast Wisconsin, but particularly for Algoma. One of the first "Shanty Days" honorees, Jag played an instrumental role in the planting of the coho salmon in Lake Michigan, charter fishing and the boardwalk as well as the development of Algoma Marine, the Captain's Table Restaurant, Harbor Inn Motel and River Hills Estates. Ahead of its time, one of his favorite and most proud creations was "Living Lakes Expo", a Disney-like, animated and interactive attraction that educated and entertained young and old alike about the history of the Great Lakes through talking and singing fish, seagulls and ghostly sea captains. A primary catalyst and loyal supporter the latter years of his life, the Farm Market Kitchen Incubator was another worthy endeavor near and dear to his heart. This facility on the Algoma lake shore was named in his honor and dedicated to him; a surprise honor that meant very much to him.

His accomplishments are many and stem way beyond those mentioned above, but his greatest joy was his family. Predeceased by his parents, loving son, Joseph, grandson, Ben Delain and son-in-law, Gary Brackeen, Jag is survived by his five daughters, Jane (Robert) Sweasy, Carrie Brackeen, Mary Jo (Steve) Liesch, Rebecca (Peter) Delain and Jennifer (Patrick) Heil; grandchildren are Mary (Dave) Licklider and Michelle (Chris) Heidmann, Rob and Tamara Sweasy, Tyler Brackeen, Alexa and Anna Liesch, Paul Delain, Patrick Jr. and Isabella Heil; great-grandchildren include Joseph Haegele and Natalie Heidmann.

Jag was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church, where many special memories were established for him as a young child, through the end of his life on this earth. His faith was very important to him and he did his very best to live his life in a manner pleasing to Jesus. He definitely stumbled along the way, as we all do, but his heart was always in the right place. He loved his God, family, employees and business partners and truly did strive to have a positive impact on the life of every single person he knew.

A very heartfelt thank you goes out to those who have "been there" for Dad. You know who you are! Special gratitude to the loving and kind folks at Unity Hospice and Bay Road Place for making Dad's last months and days as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. What a blessing you were!

Please note change of venue. Friends may call at the Schinderle Funeral Home, (not St. Mary Church), 1600 Schinderle Lane, Hwy 54, Algoma, Wednesday, July 20, from 3 p.m. until time of prayer service at 7 p.m. Visitation will also occur at St. Mary Catholic Church, 118 Church St., Algoma, on Thursday, July 21, from 9 a.m. until time of Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m., Father William Swichtenberg officiating.

She joined her husband, Cletus, who preceded her in death on July 7, 2009, and her grandson, Paul, who died on July 7, 2000. Evelyn was born on March 17, 1928, the daughter of the late Charles and Elizabeth Aland. On Aug. 23, 1947, she married Cletus Langlay at St. Boniface Church in De Pere. Evelyn enjoyed staying at home taking care of her husband and four children. She made the best chili and lasagna but will be remembered by everyone for her creamy fudge balls, peanut butter cups and angel food candy. She loved being outdoors gardening or cutting the grass. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and dogs, and took many walks with them. She was a very caring person and had a smile which made her beautiful blue eyes sparkle. She will be missed by her family and many friends.

Survivors include her four children, Jan Dannhausen, Sturgeon Bay; and Richard Dannhausen, Egg Harbor; Mary (Doug) Stewart, Pembine; Nancy (Tom) Gerondale, Green Bay; and Gerald (Judy) Langlay, Packwaukee.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, Cletus; grandson, Paul Stewart; sister, Irene Servais; and brothers, Francis and Clem Aland; many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.

The family would like to thank Dr. Asma, Heartland Hospice (Anna for her consoling words), Fr. Mauthe, and the staff at Manor West Nursing Home where Evelyn lived and called home for the past eight years. Evie brought smiles to their faces and joy in their hearts. Even though she had Alzheimer's, she knew that they loved and cared for her with respect and dignity. Evie was blessed to have Joey (her guardian angel) as her room-mate for the last few months of her life. Joey was devoted to taking care of "grandma" when the family couldn't be there.

The family will receive relatives and friends at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 305 N. Tenth Street, De Pere, from noon until time of service at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 24, 2011, with Fr. Tim Shillcox O.

Josephine "Josie" E. LaPlant, 100 years, a lifetime resident of Jacksonport, passed away peacefully Thursday afternoon, July 28, 2011, at Cardinal Ridge CBRF with her loving daughters by her side.

She was born March 12, 1911, at home on the farm in the Town of Egg Harbor, the daughter of Jacob and Teresa (Zelhofer) Neimeyer. Josie attended Sunny Point School. She married her childhood sweetheart, William "Bill" LaPlant on June 7, 1941. They shared 63 years, working their family farm together until Bill passed away on April 26, 2005. Josie and Bill picked many pails of cherries, bushels of apples and she was well known for her baking. She was recognized for her baking skills and was awarded 1st Place at the Door County Fair for her delicious apple pie. Josie enjoyed the hard work of housecleaning and washing windows at the Alpine. Josie was also well known in her later years for entertaining people wherever she went with her many tongue-twisters.

She was a member of Stella Maris Parish-Jacksonport, Homemakers for many years, enjoyed a good card game, and loved to play radio bingo. But Josie's true love in life was her husband, Bill, her daughters and family.

Josie celebrated her 100 years of life on March 5, 2011, with her family and many friends dancing to her favorite music played by her favorite band, Modern Day Drifters. To Josie they were "the boys" and they affectionately called her their "oldest fan."

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday at Stella Maris Parish-Jacksonport site, with Fr. David Ruby officiating. Burial will follow at St. Michaels Cemetery.

Anderson, The Rt. Rev. Robert M.

6:32 PM, Jul. 29, 2011  |  

 

An evensong memorial service will be held at 5 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 21, for the Rt. Rev. Robert Marshall Anderson, the seventh Episcopal bishop of Minnesota and a gracious humanitarian leader all his life, at the Church of the Atonement, Fish Creek at Main Street and Cottage Row, www.atonement -fishcreek.org

Bishop Anderson, 77, Minneapolis and Ephraim, died on May 3, 2011. He served the Minnesota diocese from 1978 to 1993 and was interim rector of the Church of the Holy Spirit, Lake Forest, Ill., amid his service as bishop assistant to the Diocese of Los Angeles from 1995 to 2008.

His successor as bishop of Minnesota, James Jelinek, said, "He was a man of vision, courage, mission and passion, all undergirded by his rich spirituality a faith grounded in the unfailing generosity of God as lived out in Jesus Christ."

Bishop Anderson, who preached often at the Church of the Atonement, won countless friends and admirers in Door County. They knew him as a kind, cheerful, empathetic man who could be relied on for help in a family crisis.

The Andersons' close attachment to Door County stretches nearly three decades. Mary and Bob Anderson initially came to attend a class in 1983, returning yearly to the historic Church of the Atonement, a summer church that serves full-time residents as well as vacationers. Twenty-one years ago, shepherded by longtime Ephraim residents Raynor Sturgis and Ed West, the Andersons bought a yellow cottage in a meadow of wildflowers and birds, naming the place Cloudberry for an ancient Nordic fruit legendarily harvested by the light of the moon. Every summer they were surrounded there by family and friends.

Bob Anderson was born in 1933 in Staten Island, N.Y., graduated from Colgate University, served as an Army private along the border in Korea and then graduated cum laude from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. After a year as a Danforth scholar at Northwestern University, he became a priest in Middle Haddam, Conn., and later the dean of St. Mark's Cathedral in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the time of his election he was the youngest bishop in the church.

The abiding highlight of his career was serving as a friend, counselor, teacher and mentor to parishioners and colleagues. "The Episcopal Church has lost a great soul," said Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori. For many years he taught in CREDO, an eight-day program that gives participants a deeper sense of who they are. With the support of many in Minnesota he also founded the House of Prayer on five acres in Collegeville, marking the first instance since the Reformation that an Anglican diocese and a Benedictine monastery pledged to live, work and pray together.

While in Minnesota, he served alongside the ministries of the Native American faith communities. "He was human, not a saint," said the former missioner for native ministries, "but he didn't focus on the burr under the saddle and let it distract from the journey. And whenever there was an event in Indian country, he was there."

Among his many honors, Bishop Anderson received the 1996 Colman J. Barry award for humanitarian service to others, as well as honorary degrees from Seabury Western Seminary and Berkeley Divinity School.

Surviving are his wife of 50 years, Mary Artemis Evans Anderson; three daughters, Martha Anderson (Paul Lehman), Elizabeth (Magnus) Kempe, Catherine (William) Gregg; a son, Thomas Robert (Lea) Anderson; grandchildren, Quinn, Simon and Benjamin Lehman, William, Charlotte Mary and Jonathan Gregg, Olivia Kempe, and Winter Rose Emanuelle and Sasha Rain Eleanor Anderson; a sister-in-law, Susan C. Evans; a brother-in-law, Tom (Lorraine) Evans; two nieces and a nephew. Services also were held May 9 in Minneapolis.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may go the the Church of Atonement Outreach Fund.
