    Coenen, Dorothy M. "Dolly" Dorothy M. "Dolly" Coenen, De Pere, was called from her earthly home to be in God's presence on Dec. 12, 2007. She was the daughter of the late Victor and Elizabeth Van Gemert, both lifetime residents of De Pere. Survivors include her children and their spouses, Peter (Robin) Coenen, Lafayette, Calif.; Carolyn (Dr. Henry) Saperstein, Baileys Harbor; Paul (Terry) Coenen, Cumming, Ga.; Christine (Keith) Garnett, Kohler and Cocoa Beach, Fla.; John (Ja'nice) Coenen, De Pere; and Rick (Wendy) Coenen, Green Bay; brother, James (Rita) Van Gemert, De Pere; sisters-in-law, Mary Coenen, Allouez; Sylvia Schumerth, Oshkosh; and Marion Van Gemert, Montrose, Colo.; grandchildren, Kimberly, Michael (Veronica) and Terri (Scott) Reyes, Brian (Jennifer) Saperstein, Paul, Crystal, April (Dan) Terrien, and Jaime (Curt) Haverkorn; as well as step-grandchildren, Leslie (Tom) Horness and Craig (Mary) Garnett; great-grandchildren, Emma Schroeder, Zachary, Joseph, and Samantha Coenen, Zoe Saperstein; as well as step- great-grandchildren, Keith, Megan, Zac Horness, Ashley, Grace, and Maggie Garnett, and Michael Haverkorn. In addition, there are several nieces, nephews and many friends. Dolly was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Clement, in 1978; five brothers, Alton, Clement, Arnold, Dr. John, and Robert; three sisters, Anna Mae, Florence, and Lucille. She was also preceded in death by seven sisters-in-law, Dorothy, Alice, and Florence (Biselx) Coenen, Arleen, Catherine, (Elizabeth (Barty) and Margaret Van Gemert; five brothers-in-law, Frederick, Guse, D.J. McMillin, George Regan, Harold Schumerth and E.L. Biselx. Dolly was a wonderful cook and homemaker. A spot at her dinner table was lively and sought after. All guests were welcome and left satisfied. Always having had time to "play a few hands," Dolly loved cards. Bridge was her favorite game and she was a sharp player, winning several bridge marathons. Dolly was willing to give of herself and her time to many volunteer and community agencies and affairs, especially her church activities and projects. She also prided herself on her appearance. Few of her outfits did not have a hat or scarf to match; often Dolly designed and made her own outfits. As she "matured," Dolly often said she loved to have her children and their children visit. On the other hand, she also said she was afraid she'd have to explain to her friends how she could have children appear so old, being that she was so young herself! She was blessed with an excellent sense of humor. One story she often told was about an event that had taken place during her many years as a tour guide for the Green Bay Area Visitor and Convention Bureau. During a bus tour of Door County, some of her tourist guests were having trouble navigating the speed bumps in a well-known restaurant's parking lot. "Not so fast, Dolly," one of them said, "We're 65 now, and don't get around like we used to." Dolly only encouraged and smiled; she was nearly 75 by then. Dolly loved the tours, which promoted Green Bay, the Packers, the De Pere area and often went on to Door County. She was an excellent guide, entertaining the guests while giving the early history of each city, village, or hamlet through which the tour passed. Her guests included visitors from nearly every state and many foreign countries including Russia, Japan, Norway, and Sweden. While Dolly worked through an interpreter for the foreign guests her humor and good spirits were never lost. Memorial Mass for Dolly will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2007, at Old St. Joseph Church, St. Norbert College Parish, Grant Street on St. Norbert Campus, De Pere. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. to the time of Mass with Fr. James Baraniak, O. Praem., officiating. Dolly requests that donations, in lieu of flowers, kindly be sent to either Paul's Pantry, 1520 Leo Frigo Way, Green Bay, WI 54302, or be sent to your favorite charity. In her later years, Dolly jokingly said that she'd know she'd passed when she read about it in the obituaries in the local newspaper. None could be sorrier than her children that today is that day. Goodbye and thanks for everything, Mom. We'll see you and dad again soon. Please go to www.ryanfh.com to express online condolences to the family. The last two months of Mom's life was somewhat of a blur. She never had a chance to say goodbye to her friends, especially her many friends at Nicolet Highlands. Also, to say, "thank you" to her longtime physician, Dr. Richard Greene and his nurse Arlene. We, the family, would like to thank St. Vincent Hospital (2nd and 9th floor) for her care while there. Although she wasn't there long, thank you to the management and staff at Renaissance. Finally, we can't say thank you enough to the management and staff at Rennes Health Center. We will never forget the loving care and compassion you showed to our mom. Nor will we forget the emotional support you provided to us, the kids, every step of the way.
