Parents

Biography

  • Birth: Rosella Martha DuFrane was born on July 11, 1935 in Kimberly, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: She and Ronald K Verstegen were married on October 27, 1956 in Holy Name Church, Kimberly, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: Rosella Martha DuFrane was married on October 22, 1976.
  • Death: She died on February 4, 2011, at age 75.
  • Burial: She was buried in Holy Name Cemetery, Kimberly, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Rosella Martha "Rose" Schumacher was born into eternal life on Feb. 4, 2011, at the age of 75. She was born on July 11, 1935, to Lawrence and Johanna Du Frane in Kimberly, Wis., where she lived in her early years. On Oct. 27, 1956, she married Ronald (Ron) Verstegen at Holy Name Catholic Church in Kimberly. Together they had five children. In March 1972, Ron passed away. A half-mile or so away Marvin (Marv) Schumacher had also lost his mate Betsy (Van Zeeland) to cancer. Rose and Marv eventually dated, and on Oct. 22, 1976, Rose and her five married Marv and his eight, again at Holy Name Church.

    With abundant room in their hearts but not so much room in the house on Edwards Street in Combined Locks, they set to building a new home in Little Rapids (De Pere), expanding later as the number of grandchildren grew. Rose was a compassionate listener. She was exceptionally hospitable, often inviting guests to sit themselves down a while, and maybe gather at the table to play some cards, Scrabble or some other game. Rose had a warm heart; family members and friends were naturally drawn to her to share both triumphs and challenges-to receive hugs, congratulations, tears, and maybe a little bit of advice here and there. She was a sort of glue that kept people together.
    Prior to her illness, Rose loved to play golf. She also enjoyed singing and had directed and sung in various church choirs throughout her life. She took up quilting after becoming an "empty nester" and created quilts for many family members, as heirlooms to commeremorate weddings, graduations,etc. It seems there was always something to celebrate!
    Rose is survived by her loving husband, Marv Schumacher; children, Tom and Lois Schumacher, De Pere, and their children, John, Ben, Betsy and Elizabeth; Mike and Brenda Schumacher, Sturgeon Bay, and their children, Nichole, Matt, Kate and Luke; Sue and Jim Gage, Cincinnati, O.H., and their children, Heidi, Jennifer, Lisa and Max; Sally and Tom Schmidt, De Pere, and their children, Andy, Adam, Mike, Shane, Brian, Amanda, and Becky; Rick and Deb Verstegen, Appleton, and their children, Lindsay, Amanda and Bryan; Jean Schumacher, Livermore, Calif., and her children, Dedra and Erin; Renee and Joe Wyngaard, Weyauwega, and their children, Jenny, Laura, Brooke and Tyler; Regina (Gigi) and Greg Johnson, Manawa, and their children, Emily and Mitchell; Paul and Lisa Schumacher, Racine, and their children, Joe, Sara, Brittney and Henry; Carol Schumacher (Mike Jandrin), De Pere and their children, Crystal, Betsy, Tracy and Dana; Roy and Kathy Verstegen, Kimberly, and their children, Lexy, Jake and Monica; Greg and Greta Schumacher, Shorter, AL and their son Nathan; and Ruth Verstegen, Neenah. Rose is also survived by 32 great-grandchildren and ten great-great-grandchildren. She took delight in every one of them!
    Surviving brothers and sisters are Edward (Sonny) and Catherine Du Frane, Delores Boudry, Agnes Smarzinski, Carol and Lyle Hietpas, Marion Du Frane, and June Du Frane. Helping to prepare the way for Rose in Paradise were her parents, her first husband, Ron Verstegen; granddaughter, Carrie Schumacher, and siblings Frances (Carl) Zwiers, Levi (Mitzi) Du Frane, Harold Du Frane, Lawrence Du Frane, Myrtle (Herman) Sauer, and Reuben (Eileen) Du Frane.

Mass of Christian Burial will be concelebrated at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Church with Monsignor John Schuh, Father Tim Shillcox, O. Praem., and Father John H. Harper, officiating. Burial in Holy Name of Jesus Cemetery, Kimberly. RYAN FUNERAL HOME of De Pere is assisting the family with arrangements. Please visit www.ryanfh.com to send on line condolences to the Schumacher and Verstegen families.
    On Rose's behalf, the family wishes to thank all the wonderful people at Unity Hospice; they were a constant support when Rose and the family really needed it. Also thank you to the many people who visited and comforted Rose as her illness progressed. Indeed we will miss the wonderful warmth and love of our mother, grandmother and friend, but WE SHALL MEET AGAIN, at a table the Lord has set.
