    JEROME "JERRY"
    Passed to his heavenly reward on Monday, Nov. 25, 2013, after a brief illness. He was a patient at Mercy Hospital University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Born on May 5, 1928, in Appleton, WI, the second of six children born to Henry Janssen and Rose Obarski Janssen. After graduation from 8th grade at St. Therese School, he entered the Pontifical College Josephinum Seminary in Worthington, Ohio. Upon returning to Wisconsin, he completed his undergraduate degree at St. Norbert College, De Pere. Shortly thereafter, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served as a 2nd Lieutenant. Returning to civilian life, Jerry earned his MA degree and pursued a doctorate degree in history from UW-Madison. He was employed as a professor of history with the UW-Extension system at various locations: Green Bay, Marinette and Menasha. Jerry accepted a position in the history department at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA, as a professor of history. After 40 years, he retired from Duquesne, but continued to hold an interest in his field of study. Jerry was a kind gentle soul, who always wanted to help those less fortunate. He made regular trips to Wisconsin during the summer and at Christmas time, driving all night after midnight Mass, with his sister to the family Christmas party in Wisconsin. He always had a dog or two as pets and walked them in the woods along the trolley tracks near his home. Pittsburgh was his home, where he put down roots, sang in the St. Basil Choir and regularly attended the Pittsburgh symphony. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Rose and Henry Janssen; brother, Rev. Orville Janssen; brothers-in-law, Glenn Moder (Novella Janssen) and Dr. Guy T. Barry (Therese Janssen). Jerry is survived by sisters, Therese and Novella; brothers, David Janssen (Mary) and Thomas Janssen (Diana); and 13 nieces and nephews. A funeral service is planned for Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014, at St. Bernard Catholic Church, 1617 W Pine St., Appleton, WI. Visitation begins at 9 a.m., followed with a Mass at 11 a.m. Arrangements entrusted to the LEO J. HENNEY FUNERAL HOME, Carnegie.

Biography

  • Birth: Glenn H Moder was born on April 14, 1931 in Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: He was married on September 1, 1956 in St Therese Church, Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: He died on March 20, 2010, at age 78, in Arizona.
  • Note: Glenn Moder of Green Valley, AZ/Eagle River died unexpectedly March 20, 2010, at the age of 78 in AZ. He was born April 14, 1931, in Appleton to the late Peter & Anna (Grassl) Moder. He married Novella Janssen on September 1st, 1956, at St. Therese's Catholic Church in Appleton. His greatest passion was his family and he will be truly missed by his beloved wife of 53 years, Vell, five children Mary (Michael) Holbach, Tom, Sarah (Scott) Frandle, Ann (Michael) Flattum, Mark, his four grandchildren Katie, Oleg, Kolia, Ella and his dear brother Ralph Moder.

    Glenn wore many hats in his lifetime including four years in U.S. Naval Intelligence. A UW-Madison Graduate, MS in Management Science, Cardinal Stritch. He was a photographer for the Wisconsin State Crime Lab, Photo Engraver and Photo Journalist for the Appleton Post Crescent. He spent 28 years working for AT&T and upon retirement went on to work as an energy consultant.

    He had a very strong belief in civic & community service activities and served for many years on the Trustee and Library Boards in Whitefish Bay. He was the Chairman of Public Works and Health Committees, Chairman Milwaukee Northshore Water Commission, Metropolitan Milwaukee Civic Alliance, Lakefront Planning Committee and the Wisconsin Governors Committee for International Joint Commissions: Great Lakes Remedial Action Planning. WI Energy Conservation Commission for Industrial Operations, Wisconsin Energy Center Industrial Committee Chairman, Officer Milwaukee Council Boy Scouts of America, Rotary Club President, District Chairman Rotary Youth Health Foundation, "Rotarian of the Year" and Awarded Special Rotary International Presidents Service, founding member and president Milwaukee North Shore Paramedics. He served on the Continental Vistas Board in Green Valley, and was a docent at the Pima County Air Museum in Tucson. He was happiest when solving any issues or problems and/or forming a committee to help solve all that came before him for the good of his community, rarely taking credit for his work.

    An avid talker, he was a rare individual who made friends easily & always had a story or an opinion he was not afraid to share. We hope he is riding around in his Jeep in heaven listening to the Beach Boys feeling youthful looking for the next project to start.

    A Memorial Mass will be held May 22, St. Bernard Parish, 1617 W. Pine St., Appleton. Wake at 10 a.m. mass at 11 a.m. reception to follow at the church. In lieu of flowers memorials to Fox Valley Warming Shelter or the Boy Scouts of America.
