    Joseph Lauerman was born January 17, 1842 in Bohemia, and at the age of 19 years he came to America, coming directly to Muscoda in the year 1861. Later he went to Milwaukee to work at his trade as a shoemaker. While at Milwaukee he joined the army August 13, 1862 and was assigned to Company H, 26th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry and served for two years and ten months, being honorably discharged at the close of the war. After leaving the army he returned to Muscoda and entered into business here, which he followed for several years.

    He was married to Miss Antonil Kratochwille in 1866, from which union there were six children - three sons now living and three daughters, two of which died when small and one, Mrs. H. D. Pfiester, died at Muscoda in 1909. This wife died 23 years ago. A few years later he was again married to Mrs. Anna Fuchiek, from which marriage there were two sons born.

R., and as an officer in the various societies Mr. Lauerman was a faithful, efficient, and trusted officer. He was often chosen as a representative to various conventions from the local societies to which he belonged.

    As a man he was an excellent citizen, a kind and beloved neighbor and a kind man to his family, a man who was universally respected and revered. His last walk in town was on January 20, the day he was taken ill and never again rose from his bed. April 1, he passed away surrounded by his family and immediate relatives and friends. He seemed to have previous knowledge that irt was his last illness, though everything that could be done for him in medical attention and loving care was done. He dictated his choice in the arrangements for the funeral and his slightest wish was carried out.

    The funeral was held April 4, at the St. Johns Catholic church with Requiem High Mass, conducted by his pastor, Father J. E. Prucha, assisted by Fathers Belik of Prarie du Chien and Kiernan of Avoca. The interment was made at the Catholic cemetery, where the G. A. R. took charge of the remains and the honorary soldiers burial services was carried out, Commander A. J. Hood delivering an address at the grave. The societies and the G. A. R. to which he belonged attended the funeral in a body and marched beside the body in the funeral procession.

    He is survived by his wife, his sons Joseph, Frank, and Charles by his first wife and John and Edward by his second wife, and by two step-children, Frank Fuchiek and Mrs. J. J. Kremer and 16 grandchildren. Those present at the funeral from a distance besides the children named were Mrs. Joseph Lauerman, H. D. Pfiester, Mrs. Dan Madigan, and Joseph Kratchwill of Marinette; W. Kradwill of Racine. The deceased was 69 years, 2 months, and 15 days old at the time of his death and his life was useful to his country, to his family, and to the community in which he lived.

Biography

  • Birth: Charlene Ann Klister was born on February 3, 1938 in Green Bay, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: She died on June 9, 2016, at age 78, in Georgia.
  • Burial: She was buried in St Patrick Cemetery, Askeaton, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Charleen Ann Klister of Tucker, Georgia passed away on June 9, 2016. Charleen was born February 3, 1938 in Green Bay, Wisconsin to the late Earl Klister and Catherine Tucker Klister who raised her in nearby De Pere, Wisconsin. She attended St. Joseph's Academy in Green Bay, and then received a B.A. in Philosophy at Fontbonne College in St Louis, Missouri and an M.A. in English at St. Louis University. In 1958 Charleen joined the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Louis Province, where she was a member until 1974. Charleen began her teaching career at Little Flower Catholic High School in Chicago, Illinois in 1961. In 1963, Charleen moved to St. Pius X Catholic High School in Atlanta, Georgia where she was a celebrated English teacher for 52 years until her retirement in 2015. Along with being recognized by the faculty as the Teacher of the Year in 2008 and receiving the Archbishop's Award for Distinguished Service, Charleen was named Star Teacher six times by her students. Charleen achieved her life's goal: "to teach as a way of finding God in all things." In doing so, she helped students uncover truths about themselves and their world. For over five decades, Charleen challenged 5,000 students to discover their voice as writers and their power as readers. Sharing her love of ideas and language in each of her lessons, Charleen masterfully guided students to what she often called the "sanctity of story." She taught from her deep well of enthusiasms, which ranged from Thoreau and Whitman to Twain and Fitzgerald, from Native American myths to the speeches of Lincoln and King. Observant and gentle, Charleen believed in the unique potential of each student and was passionately committed to developing critical thinking skills and opening hearts to the wonder of words. To her colleagues, she was an encouraging mentor whose heart-felt notes at just the right time made all the difference. She paid attention to others, knowing where their hearts lay and so was able to nurture their spirits. Charleen felt that the essence of all that she read, taught and shared "pointed back to God." In addition to cultivating the minds and spirits of her students and colleagues, Charleen cultivated her own spirit as a congregant of Holly Cross Catholic Church and as an avid Green Bay Packers fan. She adorned her life with things she loved: family, friends, birds, African violets, succulent plants, and mystery novels. This great teacher and valued friend has now returned to God, having inspired and changed the lives of many. Charleen is predeceased by her brother Jerome Klister; great-niece Genevieve Rynes; great-nephew Mark Rynes; paternal grandparents John and Henrietta (VandeHey) Klister; and maternal grandparents Ed and Sadie (Summers) Tucker. She is survived by her sisters and brother-in-law, Mary (Klister) Pierquet and Michael Pierquet of Green Bay, Jeanne Klister of Green Bay and Barbara (Klister) Smits of Portland, Oregon; sister-in-law Nancy Klister of Sister Bay; and twenty-five nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, Aunts Margaret McVey and Dorothy Hubert, and many cousins. Her presence and wisdom can never be replaced but will be lovingly remembered by all those who knew her. Charleen wished to express her gratitude to the medical staff of Emory's Winship Cancer Institute and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home. A memorial Mass will be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 4805 Sportsman Road, De Pere, WI on Thursday, June 23 at 11:00 am. Interment will be at St. Patrick's Cemetery in Askeaton, WI. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Monsignor Richard Lopez scholarship fund of St. Pius X Catholic High School, 2674 Johnson Rd. Atlanta, GA 30345.
