Biography

  • Birth: Dorothy A Kreutzberg was born on April 19, 1916.
  • Marriage: She and Edward Wilbur Frahm were married on June 29, 1938.
  • Death: Dorothy A Kreutzberg died on February 27, 2011, at age 94.
  • Note: Dorothy A. Frahm, 94, died peacefully at home February 27. Our mother was born April 19, 1916, to Henry & Katherine (Bauer) Kreutzberg. Mom married the love of her life, Edward, on June 29, 1938, and they enjoyed 67 years together. Dad and his "Annie" farmed and raised a family of six children: Sister Michaeleen (Joan) Frahm, CSA, Berlin; Myra and Jerry Pritzl; Kermit Frahm; LeRoy and Rose Frahm; Jacinta "Cindy" and Gene Clark; Carol Frahm. Mom enjoyed her grandchildren: Brian and MaryBeth Pritzl, Mark and Lori Pritzl, Amy Pritzl, Aaron Pritzl and fiancee Michelle Guenette, Ellery and Penny Frahm, Erika Frahm, Matt and Kay Clark, Tim and Carole Clark, and Andrea Clark. Mom was also blessed with 12 great-grandchildren. Also surviving is one sister-in-law Teresa Kreutzberg.

    Preceding her in death were her husband; three sisters, Mary Ulman, Asella (Sal) Gresl, Monica Oberrieder; five brothers, Conrad, Theodore, Clarence, Elmer and Edward.

    Volunteering was part of Mom's life with more than 12,000 hours at St. Elizabeth Hospital and decades of service to St. Mary's Church and School, St. Mary's Adult Choir, the Resurrection Choir, and St. Bernard's Mission Group.

    Special to Mom, and in her own words: "Foster care is very dear to my heart. There is joy and satisfaction in a baby's morning smile, their enjoyment of a bath, and restful sleep. Foster care is a family affair." We enjoyed sharing Mom with 33 children.

  • Death: He died on September 28, 2017, at age 68.

    Surrounded by family, his pride and joy, Eugene "Gene" M. Clark, age 68, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 28, 2017, at home after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Gene was born in Wausau, WI on April 29, 1949 to the late Michael and Helen (Bavlnka) Clark. Gene's loving parents taught him his values which he carried thru life. He was united in marriage to Jacinta "Cindy" M. (Frahm) Clark on May 20, 1972.

    Gene is survived by his wife of 45 years, Cindy, their children, Matt (Kay) Clark, Tim (Carole) Clark, and Andrea (Ryan Binversie) Clark, and his grandchildren Marah, Anne, Sarah, Shawn, and Nathan; his siblings Bessie (Frank) Curran and Harold Clark; in-laws Sr. Michaeleen Frahm CSA, Myra (Jerry) Pritzl , Kermit Frahm, LeRoy (Rose) Frahm, and Carol Frahm as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Gene and Cindy were also host parents to eleven exchange students from AASD German American Partnership Project, Global Outreach and Rotary.

    Gene and Cindy loved to travel the USA and abroad. Their adventures took them many places including Ireland, Germany, Hungry, Austria, South Africa, and Slovakia.

    Gene enjoyed volunteering at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, St. Mary's Church, and The Salvation Army Fox Cities. He was a member and officer of the Outagamie Philatelic Society.

    Boy Scouts were constant in Gene's life. An Eagle Scout with a Bronze Palm and Camp Tesomas counselor as a youth, he went on into leadership roles as an adult when he was still only a new father. Gene's enduring legacy was the merger of St. Joe's and St. Mary's Troops 1 and 70 into today's Troop 1. This began a life-long friendship with Chuck Kampf. Gene's service began as an Assistant Scoutmaster, which led to his long term service as Scoutmaster of Troop 1. From 1975 through 2012 he also served as a Committee Chair, Charter Organization Representative, and Merit Badge Counselor for Stamp Collecting and Space Exploration. As an adult, he earned the St. George Award, Wood Badge, Scoutmaster's Key, and the Bay Lake's District Spark Plug Award.

    Gene started his career with Northern Contractors when he moved to the Fox Valley. Later he became a draftsman with Viking Steel. He ended his career as a Project Manager with Ambassador Steel where he worked from 2001 until retirement in 2015, ending a more than 40 year career.

    Gene is preceded in death by his parents, infant brother Michael, and in-laws Edward and Dorothy (Kreutzberg) Frahm.

    A visitation for family and friends will be held on Wednesday, October 4th from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Wichmann Funeral Homes (537 North Superior St., Appleton). Funeral Liturgy will be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church (312 South State Street, Appleton) on Thursday, October 5th at 10:30 AM. Additional visitation at St. Mary's from 9:30 AM until time of service.

    In lieu of flowers, memorials in Gene's memory to one of the following charities are appreciated: Friends of Peninsula State Park, Wisconsin Public Television, and St. Elizabeth Hospital Volunteer Program. The family enjoyed many camping trips to Peninsula to sit around the campfire, star gaze and watch the meteor showers. One of his favorite activities was spending time at the nature center with his grandkids. Programs such as This Old House and Masterpiece on Wisconsin Public Television entertained Gene for many years. Finally, the Volunteer Program at St. Elizabeth Hospital provided him with purpose in his retirement.

    The Clark family is thankful for family, friends and neighbors, especially Dawn and Greg Van Domelen, who were supportive over the last year with their time, prayers, and compassion.
