    Andres, Shirley A. "Granny" Shirley A. "Granny" Andres, 70, of Little Chute died Saturday, October 22, 2005, at home following a nineteen month battle with cancer. She was born February 21, 1935, in Kaukauna daughter of Josephine (Vander Loop) and Henry Heiting. Shirley married David Andres July 25, 1953. Mrs. Andres was a member of St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church, Little Chute. Shirley still enjoyed visits to the cottage, the casino and going out to eat. Friday's at home were spent eating fish and playing cards. It was not unusual to see her following the football and baseball games to see how "her numbers" were doing. She made weekly trips to buy scratch off tickets for herself and her neighbors. Special neighbors, Gino and Esther Roy, traded everything from baked goods to lawn cutting. Shirley did well throughout her chemo and radiation treatments, worrying more about when she could get back up north, than any pain or side effects. She had many friends at Pickerel and Crane Lakes where she and Dave have had cottages their entire lives.

    Shirley is survived by her husband, David "Grampy", having been married 52 years; daughters: Lynn (Mike) Van Asten, Kaukauna; Diane (Dave) Oliver, Little Chute; sons: Steve (Lori) Andres, Peter (Lynn) Andres both of Little Chute; grandchildren: Chris (Jennifer) Van Asten, Sarah Van Asten, Josh and Nick Oliver, Robin Andres, Rachel, Tyler and Zach Andres, Mindy, Nathan and Courtney Andres; great grandchildren: Miles Van Asten, Tauryn Andres; brother, Jerome (Delores) Heiting, Kaukauna; sisters-in-law: Aggie Heiting, Little Chute, Jane Heiting, Milwaukee; brothers-in-law: Ed Andres, Antigo, Dick (Theda) Andres, Appleton; numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.

    She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Josephine Heiting and Henry Heiting; sister, Eunice Wilcox; brothers: Eugene, Richard and Melvin (Frances) Heiting; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Art Andres, Gene (Gerry) Andres, Virginia Andres.

    Funeral services will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 25, 2005, at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church with Rev. Msgr. James Vanden Hogen officiating. Interment will be in St. John Cemetery, Little Chute. Friends may call at the church from 1 p.m. Tuesday until the time of the mass.

    The family would like to express their appreciation to the oncology doctors, nurses and staff at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Shirley even received the "Favorite Patient" award after completing 33 radiation treatments. She continued to impress the staff with her spirit and determination in enduring the treatments.

David Dale Andres

Biography

  • Birth: David Dale Andres was born on November 13, 1930.
  • Marriage: He and Shirley Ann Heiting were married on July 25, 1953 in Holy Cross, Kaukauna, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: David Dale Andres died on January 31, 2018, at age 87.
  • Burial: He was buried in St John Cemetery, Little Chute, Wisconsin, New/12/57.
  • Note: Little Chute - David D. Andres, age 87, of Little Chute passed away peacefully on Wednesday January 31, 2018. He was born on November 13, 1930 son of the late Emil and Clara (Kloida) Andres. He married Shirley Heiting on July 25, 1953 at Holy Cross Church, Kaukauna. After graduating from high school in Antigo, Dave entered the Navy where he served aboard the USS Sea Poacher submarine until his honorable discharge in 1952. Dave was employed at Badger Northland in Kaukauna for many years. After leaving Badger, he became one of the partners of Fox Valley Tool & Die, Inc., Kaukauna, where he saw the business grow and expand until his retirement. During those retirement years, Dave helped his sons Peter and Steve each start machining businesses of their own - ATCAM, LLC (Andres Thermal Coating and Machine) and Andres Machine Service, Inc. - where he enjoyed spending time at both shops running various machines, making deliveries, answering phones and serving as the unofficial "Good Will Ambassador" for both operations. Dave was a life-long member of St. John Nepomucene Church where he served as an usher for over 40 years and generously supported many parish charities and activities.

    Dave was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who enjoyed having fun with his family at the cottage, first on Pickerel Lake and later Crane Lake - where the fish were always biting, the 4-wheelers and snowmobiles were always idling and ready to go, the sheephead blinds were always loaded with trump, his beloved Packers were always winning on the cottage tv and the cans of Miller beer in the fridge were always cold. As the four kids in the family grew older and the grandchildren started to arrive, Shirley became known as "Granny" and Dave became "Grampy" - not just to his family but to almost all who came in contact with him. This ever expanding circle of unofficial family members always enjoyed "Grampy's" kind words, funny sayings and the bubblegum or miniature candy bars he would freely distribute from pockets that never seemed to empty. He will be greatly missed by his children Lynn (Mike) Van Asten, Kimberly; Diane (Dave) Oliver, Appleton; Steve (Lori) Andres, Little Chute; Peter (Lynn) Andres, Kaukauna; grandchildren Chris Van Asten (Jennifer); Sarah Remmel (Cory), Josh Oliver (Jackie); Nick Oliver (Sarah); Robin Andres (special friend James), Rachel Andres (special friend Oliver), Zach Andres (Nani); Tyler Rasmussen (Lacie); Mindy Bowers (Bill), Nathan Andres (Jess) and Courtney Andres (special friend Adam Lamers); and 16 great grandchildren - Miles, Pearce and Teage Van Asten, Jolyn and Andilee Remmel, Wesley and Lila Oliver; Tauryn and Quinlan Andres; Raelyn, Berkley, Carley Rasmussen; Lilly, Isaiah and Elijah Bowers; and Barrett Andres. He is further survived by brothers Richard (Theda) Andres; Edward Andres and sister-in-law Aggie Heiting. He was preceded in death by his parents Emil and Clara Andres, father and mother-in-law Henry and Josephine (Vander Loop) Heiting; brothers Eugene (Geraldine) Andres; Arthur Andres; and sisters and brothers-in-law: Virginia Andres; Eunice Heiting; Eugene (Jane) Heiting; Jerome (Delores) Heiting; Melvin (Frances) Heiting and Richard Heiting.

    Visitation for Dave will be held Sunday February 4, 2018 at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church, 323 Pine Street, Little Chute from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and Monday February 5, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. until time of Mass at 5:00 p.m. with Fr. Ron Belitz and Msgr. James Vanden Hogen concelebrating. Military honors will be conducted by the Jacob Coppus American Legion Post 258, immediately following the service. Burial will be in St. John Cemetery. For online condolences please visit: www.verkuilenfh.com

    The Andres family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of St. Elizabeth Hospital Appleton- Third Floor, for the compassion and kindness they provided to Dad during these past two weeks.
