  • Death: She died on September 30, 2014, at age 80.
  • Note: MADISON - Jane Louise Loper, age 80, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, September 30, 2014, due to heart failure.

After graduating as valedictorian from Neenah High School she earned a bachelor's degree in Speech Therapy from the University of Wisconsin. Jane met her future husband, Carl, while at school in Madison and they were married for 54 years prior to his passing in 2010. She practiced as a speech therapist until the birth of her children when her focus changed to her young family. Jane was very active in the Madison community, was a member and leader of many philanthropic, educational, social, and civic organizations, and was a devoted member of Our Lady of Queen of Peace parish. Jane's strengths were a perfect match for her charismatic husband and they partnered together as he built his career. As a result of the international aspect of Carl's avocation, Jane traveled extensively around the world, and developed many close personal relationships. She was the ultimate hostess and was considerate of everyone. She perfected the art of making people comfortable by being aware of their cultural and personal needs. Quiet dinners around the dining table, family gatherings, and student parties will be remembered by all who entered her home. Jane was kind, caring, thoughtful, and generous in all aspects of her life. She will be deeply missed.

    Jane is survived by her daughter Cynthia (Jeff) Koch; sister, Helen Rose; sisters-in-law, Sharon (Tom) Radloff, and Gail (Joe) Niesl; brothers-in-law, Jim (Joan) Mellberg, Art Lebahn, and Roger (Sharon) Loper; and many nieces and nephews.

Carl R Loper

M, b. July 3, 1932, d. September 7, 2010

Family: Jane Louise Loehning (b. June 9, 1934, d. September 30, 2014)

Biography

  • Birth: Carl R Loper was born on July 3, 1932 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: He died on September 7, 2010, at age 78, in Madison, Dane Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Carl R. Loper, Jr., 78, Madison, passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2010, at Meriter Hospital as a result of Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Carl was born on July 3, 1932, in Milwaukee, Wis., the son of Carl and Valborg (Sundby) Loper.

    Faith and family were very important in Carl's life. He was married to his devoted wife, Jane, for 54 years. Carl valued not only his immediate family, but also his extended family. He greatly enjoyed the annual Loper Christmas gathering and the triennial Sundby family reunion. His love of family led to a passion for his Norwegian ancestry. He was a charter member of Torske Klubben, a member of Ygdrasil Literary Society, and a sustaining fellow of the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum.

    Carl obtained BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin. Prior to joining UW-Madison as a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, he was employed as a Plant Metallurgist at Pelton Steel Castings Co. and as a Research Metallurgist at Allis Chalmers Manufacturing Co. He was also a registered Professional Engineer, lectured and consulted internationally, and served as an Adjunct Professor of Materials at UW-Milwaukee. Carl was considered an expert in many areas of metallurgy, particularly ductile iron. He authored well over 500 technical and scientific publications, has several patents, is the co-author of a well-known text, and wrote several technical and scientific manuals. He has been internationally recognized for his engineering and scientific contributions, and has received numerous awards and honors. Carl was very involved with the American Foundry Society (AFS) and served as Chairman of the AFS Wisconsin Chapter. He received its highest honor, the Penton Gold Medal, for his contributions to research and education. Carl never lost his love of learning and never stopped working in the profession he loved.

    At a critical point in his education, Carl received scholarship funds from the Foundry Educational Foundation, which enabled him to complete his studies. During his career, he was pleased to give back to the organization, serving as a key professor for the FEF and endowing a scholarship with FEF that is presented annually to a student in metallurgy.

    Carl thoroughly enjoyed writing, researching, lecturing and consulting, and particularly enjoyed mentoring his many students. During his career, he served as advisor to a host of graduate students who are now spread all over the world, many of whom consider him a father figure and friend. In May of 2009, his former students and associates organized a symposium in his honor, with the goal of reviewing the development of cast iron and celebrating the deep friendships that were developed between Carl's metallurgy family and the entire Loper family. Carl enjoyed life and people, and never passed up an opportunity for a laugh.

    Carl is survived by his wife, Jane; his daughters, Cynthia (Jeff) Koch, and Anne Loper; sisters, Lois (Art) Lebahn, Sharon (Tom) Radloff, and Gail (Joe) Niesl; brother, Roger (Sharon) Loper; sister-in-law, Helen Rose; brother-in-law, Jim Mellberg; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Dennis.

    Funeral services will be held Thursday, Sept. 16, 2010, at 11 a.m, at MIDVALE COMMUNITY LUTHERAN CHURCH, 4329 Tokay Blvd. in Madison, with the Rev. Katherine Baardseth officiating. Entombment will follow at Forest Hill Cemetery. Visitation will be held Wednesday, September 15, 4 to 7 p.m., at CRESS FUNERAL HOME, 3610 Speedway Rd. in Madison, and Thursday, at 10 a.m. until the time of service, at the church.

    Memorials in remembrance of Carl may be given to the Foundry Educational Foundation Loper Award, the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, or the Norwegian American Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library.
