    Van Oss, Mrs. Arnold "Bud" (Jean)


    Jean Van Oss, 82, died peacefully Thursday, Sept. 17, 2009, from brain cancer. She was born in Houghton, Mich., on April 28, 1927, to Norbert and Niyla Michels. Jean moved with her family to Green Bay when she was three years old. She attended Annunciation Grade School, St. Joseph Academy and graduated from West High School in 1945. On Aug. 21, 1948, she married Bud Van Oss at Annunciation Catholic Church. During her lifetime she loved to garden, golf, fish, cook and played a mean game of cribbage. Her homemade bread and dilly beans were the envy of the neighborhood.

    She was very active in her parishes, St. Philip and SS. Edward & Isidore where she enjoyed leading the rosary before daily Mass. Her weekly sessions of "counting money" at SS. Edward's with Brenda was one of the many special moments in her life. Her family always came first in her life, guided by her deep faith, which was unwavering. Her beautiful smile was uplifting to everyone around her. She had wonderful memories of summer vacations at a cottage with family and friends, and the numerous trips taken to Door County with her husband. She was a fan of the Brewers and Packers. While most of her life was lived as a homemaker, she valued the six years she worked at the Chancery, retiring in 1988. She was a long time member and officer in the Green Bay East Serra Club and said many prayers for an increase in vocations.

    She is survived by her husband and best friend, Bud; and their five children, Barbara (Byron "Cy" Bogumill) Marin, Liz Ferris, Robert (Joyce) Van Oss, Bruce (Pam) Van Oss, and Rev. William (Sue) Van Oss. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren, Melisa (Kevin) Lindamood, Andrew (Kate) Marin, Aaron (Melissa) Ferris, Val (Genevieve) Ferris, Kit (Katie) Ferris, and Senior Airman Melanie Van Oss, Private Josh Van Oss, Dara (Daniel) Bass, Nicholas, Bridget, Caleb and Luisa Van Oss. She is also survived by two great-grandchildren, Sienna and Sasha Lindamood; a brother, Robert (Pat) Michels; and a sister, Mary Lou Haanen; and many nieces and nephews and their families. She was a special mom to Cuban refugees, Robert and Maria Garcia and Fernando Diaz.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, Norbert and Niyla Michels; her father-in-law, Arnold Sr. and mother-in-law, Louise Van Oss; a brother-in-law, Robert Haanen; a sister-in-law, Betty Lou Byers; and many aunts and uncles.

    Family and friends may call at SS. Edward & Isidore Catholic Church, 3667 Flintville Rd., Green Bay from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20. Family and friends may also call from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 21 at the church. The Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the church with the Rev. David Kasperek officiating. In lieu of flowers, Jean asked that Masses be said in her name.

    Blaney Funeral Home is assisting the Van Oss family. To send online condolences, please go to www.BlaneyFuneralHome.com.
