Biography

  • Birth: William Baeten was born on March 24, 1936.
  • Marriage: He was married on August 26, 1961 in DePere, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: He died in 2012, at age ~76.
  • Note: William "Bill" P Baeten, 76, of Green Bay passed away after a 25 year battle with Leukemia. He suffered from several other illnesses during the last year of his life.

    Bill was born March 24th, 1936 to the late Sylvester "Ted" and Dorothy (Pies) Baeten of De Pere. He graduated from East De Pere High School in 1954. Bill served in the US Air Force, Strategic Air Command, from 1954-58. In 1961 he graduated from Badger Business College with a degree in Accounting.

    Bill married Gretchen Wirch August 26th, 1961 at St Mary's Church in De Pere.

    Bill was the accountant for Herlache Industrial Supply Co. of Green Bay for 32 years and Herlache Supply of Milwaukee just prior to retiring due to ill health. Bill considered Kermit Herlache his mentor.

    Bill loved to reminisce about growing up in De Pere during the 40's and 50's. He enjoyed attending meetings of the De Pere Historical Society, of which he was a member. He enjoyed attending Packer games as a boy and an adult, only missing games during his time in the Service and later in life due to illness. There was rarely a televised sporting event he missed. He looked forward to any and all events over the years that involved his daughters and grandchildren. He was also involved in his local community, most recently working at the voting polls. There never was a dull moment in the Baeten household.

    Bill is survived by his wife of 50 years, Grethchen, his daughters and their families of which he was so proud; Jenny (Gary) Coppens of West De Pere and Katie (Trent) McCorkell of Dennison, Minnesota. Also, his grandchildren whom he loved so much; Abby and Maddy Coppens, and Brennah and Keegan McCorkell; sister and brothers in-law, Barb Peters, Jim Wirch and Chong Cha, John Wirch and Karen. He is further survived by many Nieces and Nephews and their families, Patti (Tony)Giovanetti, John (Karen) Peters, Maggie Peters, Andrew Wirch, Jimmy Wirch, and the Kolb boys (David, Keith, Marc and Craig).

    He was preceded in death by his parents, his mother and father in-law, Norman and Beatrice Wirch, sister, Jeanne Baeten, and brother in-law, Bud Peters.

    A private celebration of Bill's life will be held this summer on a warm, sunny day with family and friends sitting poolside, enjoying lots of laughter, a bowl of Erv and Katie Prosser's booyah, and, thanks to Rog Murphy, De Pere's very own Graham Cracker cake. "Everything is out, help yourself, I'm having too good of a time". A perfect day for Bill. RYAN FUNERAL HOME assisted the family.

    We love you!

    The family will make a donation to the De Pere Historical Society in Bill's name.

    Thanks to all of you who so unselfishly lent such wonderful care and support during Bills life.
