Margy's time of employment outside the home was brief, but she earned the distinction, as librarian, of being the first female employee of St. Norbert College, De Pere. Margy was active in the Appleton community early in their married life, as Girl Scout leader, in King's Daughters and in bridge groups at St. Mary Church and school and eventually at Xavier High School. As her family grew, she devoted herself and her time to making their home a nurturing place for family and friends. We remember her bread, apple pies, chocolate desserts, pot roast and so much more which was always expandable for the unexpected guest. In recent years she cared for us all by naming each one as she prayed the Rosary nightly before she fell asleep.
She was a lifelong member of St. Mary Catholic Church, Appleton, where she was baptized, confirmed, married and now will be buried. Margy loved raising her family and taught them to love, respect and enjoy others. She and Paul demonstrated hospitality, kindness and service and she instilled in her children a love of reading and learning.

Arnoldussen, Mildred Ada (Dery)
Mildred Ada (Dery) Arnoldussen passed away Wednesday, October 14, 2009, at Oakridge Gardens. She was born January 14, 1913, daughter of the late George and Lucinda Dery in Bear Creek. Millie graduated from Bear Creek High School. Millie loved to dance and told stories of their dancing outings at Waverly Beach. Millie never learned to drive, because the first time out she ended up in the ditch and that was it for her. Millie went on to school at Oshkosh Business College where she met a witty, handsome, enduring young man whom she fell deeply in love with, her Harry P. They were married June 20, 1936 — a love affair that lasted 64 years until Harry's death in 2001. Upon their graduation and marriage, Millie and Harry moved to Milwaukee, where Millie worked in the office of an advertising agency.
In 1940, Millie and Harry bought the Red Owl grocery store in Fremont. She used to joke that they were the butcher, the baker and sometimes the candlestick maker. Their daughter Jane Lou was born June 24, 1943. Jane brought much joy and happiness to Millie and Harry. After eight hard years of work, the grocery store was sold when Millie and her family moved to Appleton. In 1953, their son Joseph was born — her family was now complete. In 1959, the family moved to the north side of Appleton where they joined St. Pius X Parish. Millie is a deeply religious woman who thanks God for all her blessings each day of her life. Millie was very involved with her church where she worked in the kitchen, credit union and church picnics. In 1981, she was named St. Pius X Woman of the Year. Whenever they needed a volunteer, Millie was there to help. Millie loved to bowl, play bridge with many of her friends and loved to cook. You never walked away from her table hungry. Her grandchildren have brought her much happiness. God blessed her with three grandsons, one granddaughter and later, four great-grandchildren. Her grandchildren would say if you look in the dictionary under Grandmother you will find the picture of Grandma Millie. With her quiet ways and loving heart, they cherished her deeply. Millie had been at Oakridge Gardens for over two years. She enjoyed the friendly and caring staff, constant activities and all "her girls."
Millie is survived by her daughter, Jane Neubauer, Waukesha; her son, Joseph (Sheila), Appleton; four grandchildren: Kathy (Todd) Legault, Bloomington, MN; Pat (Katy) Neubauer, Eagle, WI; Joel Arnoldussen and Bret (Abby) Arnoldussen, both of Appleton; four great-grandchildren; Andy and Janae Legault, Izaac and Maleny Neubauer and Conner Arnoldussen who is due any day.
She was preceded in death by a brother and sister-in-law: Floyd (Elsie) Dery and a son-in-law; Paul "Skip" Neubauer.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 12 p.m. on Saturday, October 17, 2009, at St. Pius X Parish, 500 W. Marquette St., Appleton. Visitation will be held from 9 a.m. until the hour of Mass on Saturday at the church.
