Des Jardins, Arnold



Arnold Des Jardins, 86, Estero, Fla., and Green Bay, died Saturday evening, Aug. 6, 2011, at a local hospital following a two-week illness. He was born on July 27, 1925, in Green Bay, to the late John and Nettie (Le Fevre) Des Jardins. Arnold was always proud of his Belgian heritage, and proud that his father played for the original Green Bay Packers team in 1919, earning just $16 for the entire season! On July 21, 1946, he married the former Charlotte Davis in Green Bay.

He was employed by Fort Howard Paper Co. for 42 years before retiring in 1991. Arnold loved to work. He had many interests and was particularly handy with the family farm which he later developed. He maintained a beautiful yard and did everything he could on his own. He loved all animals and that love was curiously reciprocated by every animal in his presence. Arnold read the Wall Street Journal and Barron's every day and was a savvy investor. He and Charlotte enjoyed many wonderful years together, and spent their retirement years between their homes in Estero, Fla., Green Bay and Fish Creek.

Survivors include his wife of 65 years, Charlotte; two sons and daughters-in-law, Jeff and Darlene Des Jardins, Green Bay; and John and Linda Des Jardins, Appleton; one daughter and son-in-law, Marcia and Chuck Crisp, Hobart; six grandchildren, Paul (Kristin) Des Jardins, Jacqueline, Michelle and Tara Des Jardins, Elizabeth (Jeremy) Jackson and Charlie (Valerie) Crisp; one brother-in-law and two sisters-in-law, Dr. Larry and Kay Davis, Redlands, Calif.; and Marilyn Davis, Scottsdale, Ariz.; nieces, nephews, including a special nephew, Ted Daul, other relatives and friends, including his bocce buddies and their wives in Florida, and his golfing buddy, Jim Carrick.

In addition to his parents, Arnold was preceded in death by two brothers, Lt. James Des Jardins and Lt. Earl Des Jardins, both of whom were pilots and died during World War II. Earl was honored by the French government as a war hero. He was killed on his 30th mission flying over France. Arnold was privileged to attend a memorial honoring Earl in 1991. Recently, the plane wreckage of James and his remains were discovered in Germany and his return for a military funeral is pending DNA analysis. Arnold was also preceded in death by beloved and faithful canine companion, Doogie.

Visitation will take place after 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2011, at Lyndahl Funeral Home, where funeral services will be held at 5 p.m. with the Rev. Doug Moorhead officiating. Interment in Fort Howard Memorial Park. Online condolences may be expressed at www.lyndahl.com.

Arnold's family would like to thank Drs. Sinclair and Atta-Finn, as well as the nursing and pastoral staffs of St. Mary's Hospital for the exceptional care and comfort that they provided.

Joseph Jossart (1942 - 2011)

 

Jossart, Joseph W.

Joseph Walter Jossart, 68, New Franken, Wis., passed away Tuesday morning, Aug. 9, 2011, peacefully at home surrounded by his loved ones following a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born in Green Bay, Sept. 27, 1942, to the late George and Eleanor (Nooyen) Jossart. He grew up in the Luxemburg area graduating from Luxemburg High School in 1961. Joe was a popular young man who was Junior Prom King and Class President. He always enjoyed the life-long friendships he formed with his classmates. Joe decided to serve his country from 1961 to 1963, in the U.S. Navy where he admirably served on the USS Oglethorpe during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He was a disabled American veteran that belonged to the VFW Post 9677.

In 1967, Joe met his soul mate, Cecilia (Derenne) Jossart at the Kewaunee County Fair. They pledged their vows in marriage on June 22, 1968, at St. Hubert's Church in Rosiere, Wis. Joe and Cece's pride and joy were their three children, Laurie (Jossart) Gehrke, Connie (Jossart) Josephs, and Walter Jossart.

Joe had a strong work ethic and provided for his family through a 40 year career with the U.S. Postal Service. He accepted several different challenges over the years including working nights as a mail sorter and days serving customers at the downtown Green Bay post office. These roles allowed him to build many lasting relationships with his coworkers and touch the lives of the loyal customers that he served. His thoughtful service over the years often turned customers into friends.

Joe was an incredibly supportive father and a loving devoted husband with an infectious sense of humor. His six grandchildren were very special to him and he found happiness by simply spending time with them. He was also a loyal Christian servant who volunteered his time at the church as an usher even in the final weeks of his life. Joe was a true sports fan supportive of the Milwaukee Brewers and was a proud Green Bay Packers season ticket holder for over 35 years. While Joe loved to travel with his wife, he was truly at peace at his home in the country where he took tremendous pride in meticulously maintaining his lawn on his John Deere tractor.

He will be deeply missed by his wife, Cecilia; three children and their spouses, Laurie (Chad) Gehrke, Sobieski; Connie (Greg) Josephs, Green Bay; and Walter (Kristen) Jossart, Kirkland, Wash.; six grandchildren, MacKenzie Gehrke, Cody and Kayla Josephs, and Ethan, Grant, and Anna Jossart; one brother and one sister-in-law, Gerald and Judy Jossart, Green Bay; one sister and one brother-in-law, Carol and Dave Malcore, Luxemburg; two sisters-in-law, Collette Jossart, Betty Jossart, both of Green Bay; his mother-in-law, Rosemary Derenne, Luxemburg; many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles ,cousins and special friends.

Joe was preceded in death by one infant sister, Adeline; two brothers, Norman and Raphael Jossart; his father-in-law, Walter H. Derenne; two nephews, Lawrence Mertens and Nicholas Jeanquart.

Francar, Mercedes (Cannard)

Mercedes (Cannard) Francar, formerly of Green Bay and most recently of the Syverson Lutheran Home in Eau Claire, passed away peacefully on Aug. 11, 2011. She was born July 14, 1918, to Arthur and Elsie (Cannard) Mathys in Green Bay, WI.

Many loved ones knew her as "Mae," a nickname she earned back in 1966, while shopping for dresses and exclaiming, "My God! This one makes me look like Mae West!" She was an avid cook who won many contests; her Hoosier Bar recipe earned her a new set of cookware. Today, that recipe can be found on the Nestle Toll House website.

Baudhuin, William M.

7:21 PM, Aug. 19, 2011  |  

 

William M. Baudhuin, 64, Sturgeon Bay, died Wednesday evening, Aug. 17, 2011, at Ministry Door County Medical Center.

He was born March 6, 1947, in Waukesha, the son of Sylvan Jr. and Francese (Goodrich) Baudhuin. He married Mary E. Koser on June 5, 1976, at St. Hubertus Catholic Church in Hubertus, Wis. She preceded him in death on June 16, 2011. He will be sadly missed by his three children, Ryan, New Berlin, Sara and Jacob, Sturgeon Bay.

Willy was working for the DNR in Colorado in the late 1970's when his brother, Hud called and asked him to go into business together and buy out their father's engineering, surveying and soil testing company in Sturgeon Bay, "Baudhuin Incorporated." More recently, he and his brother, Steve worked together at Baudhuin Engineering.

Willy never thought of work as going to work. His love of the business, employees, and clients always seemed to be more like a hobby for him. He committed to everything in his life. He loved his family, his wife, children, siblings, friends, and his employees. Even in his daily routines, his love of running was a 4 a.m. commitment everyday. Willy loved the outdoors, especially at the cabin on Marengo Lake in Bayfield County. Up there he would snow-shoe, kayak, and was always the deer camp cook.

His commitment to attend his children's athletic and school events never waivered. He could be seen after work either watching his boy's football practice or cheering on Sara at cross country meets, and supporting all of their school events; few things gave him more pleasure.

He was an active member of Corpus Christi Catholic Church, the Sturgeon Bay Optimist Club, and Sturgeon Bay Booster Club.

Survivors also include his siblings, Catherine (John) Wenzel, Wild Rose; John "Hud" (Chris) Baudhuin, Tom (Linda) Baudhuin, Steve (Jennifer) Baudhuin, Sturgeon Bay; foster sisters, Ruth Ann (Kenneth) Rupert, Hartland; Barbara (George) Herdina, Sturgeon Bay; mother-in-law, Marion Koser, Menomonee Falls.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 22, 2011, at Corpus Christi Catholic Church with Fr. Carl Schmitt and Fr. Anthony Birdsall concelebrating. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery.
