F, b. April 18, 1939, d. February 6, 2013

  • Marriage: She and Gerald A Pfotenhauer were married on June 23, 1962 in Allouez, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: Joan C Bushmaker died on February 6, 2013, at age 73.
  • Burial: She was buried in Allouez Catholic Cemetery, Green Bay, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Joan C. (Bushmaker) Pfotenhauer, 73, passed away on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at Angel's Touch Assisted Living, due to numerous medical issues. Joan Carol Bushmaker was born on April 18, 1939 in Green Bay, WI. She was the oldest of the 7 children of the late Joseph Harold and Ione Isabel (Steinfeldt) Bushmaker. She graduated from St. Matthew's Catholic Grade School, Allouez in 1953, and St. Joseph Academy, Green Bay in 1957. She also attended Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Joan married Gerald A. Pfotenhauer on June 23, 1962 at St. Matthew Catholic Church, Allouez. Gerald preceded her in death on May 23, 1998.

    For years she was active in numerous organizations, both religious and social. She was a member of St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church and also the Altar Society. She was also a member of the Women of the Moose, Green Bay Chapter 451. Also, Joan was a member of the National Catholic Society of Foresters-St. Claire Court #1102, and served as the court president for 33 years until the court became inactive in 2003. She was a delegate to many NCSF state and national conventions. For 13 years, Joan chaired the St. Mary of the Angels Arts and Crafts Fair. With the matching funds program from the N.C.S.F., chairs, tables, television, silverware and other items were purchased for the church hall. For 2 years she was a Brownie (Girl Scout) leader. Then, for 20 years Joan was an active 4-H project leader teaching members the skills of sewing, knitting, crocheting, cake decorating, etc. Joan's Grandmother Steinfeldt taught her to knit before she went to kindergarten. Her hobbies also included tatting, quilt making, baking, cake decorating, card making and a good game of cards. Knitted (headband/ear warmers) were her specialty. Joan enjoyed card-making and had been active with Sister Helen's Haiti group at St. Philip's. She was a member of the Red Hat Society and proudly wore her red hat and purple attire. Also, Joan, Gerald and their children were all Red Cross blood donors thru the years.

    Any Secret Pal friend that was on the receiving end of her gift-giving usually guessed wrong. She was great at mis-directing and making it appear that it was someone else. Many times, she herself delivered the gifts to her secret pal.

    Those attending the annual St. Mary of the Angels Mother/Daughter breakfast on May 5, 1991, will fondly remember the surprise "Vinney's Boutique Style Show: presented by Joan and her merry band of pranksters. Each hand crafted outfit was more outrageous than the next, ending with the "Spring Bride" (wedding dress covered with springs). The models had as much fun fashioning their outfits as did those attending the breakfast.

    Joan was most proud of the "Janssen Family Tree/Cookbook" which she and her sister, Susan, assembled and self-published for the Janssen Family Reunion in July 1998. It was a thrill of a lifetime. All 500 copies are cherished by family members and friends. All of this done with an advertising budget of 1 roll of stamps (100).
