  • Birth: Rosemary Jane Dorsey was born on August 4, 1930 in Morrison, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: She and Donald F Meulemans were married on June 27, 1953 in Morrison, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: Rosemary Jane Dorsey died on April 28, 2017, at age 86.
  • Burial: She was buried in St Paul Cemetery, Wrightstown, Wisconsin.

    Bud graduated from East De Pere High School in 1947 and married Don on June 27, 1953, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Morrison.
    For many years she was employed at Metal Service Company in Green Bay and later worked at the American Legion. She was a past president and did volunteer service there. She cooked for the Friday night fish fries for many years and was always a smiling face in the kitchen. She was also a bookkeeper at Meulemans Electric. She worked at Subway after Don’s passing.
    Bud enjoyed gardening, cooking, and canning. The aroma of fresh baked bread often greeted a visitor to her home. Between her own children and their Brittnacher cousins, there were plenty of hands for snipping beans and pitting cherries. In later years, she always had a fresh supply of home-baked cookies for the grandchildren.
    Bud indulged her husband’s love of travel and they made many trips together internationally, visiting Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and many other countries. While her children were growing up, there were many camping trips as a family (including the dog) throughout the United States and Canada. After Don retired, there were road trips around the US with memorable stays at B&Bs and winters in Florida with their daughter. But Bud always enjoyed coming back home because she missed her grandchildren. There was always a good cribbage game to be had with grandma.
    Bud enjoyed her trips “up north” with close friends, playing cards, golfing, fishing, and just enjoying each other’s company. She enjoyed family reunions and spending time with the many Meulemans relatives. She will be missed by family and many friends.
    Survivors include her four children: two daughters, Linda (Jeff) Wolinski, Nebo, NC, and Sharon Minten, Wrightstown; and two sons, Mark (Deb) Meulemans, Wrightstown, and Paul Meulemans, Brillion.
