John Prange

A life well lived was ended with the death of John Prange, 84, on February 19, 2018 surrounded by his wife and children. His loss will be felt by all who knew and were touched by his caring nature and love of life.

John was born in Sheboygan, WI to Milford and Ella (Jurss) Prange in 1933. The family moved to Sturgeon Bay, WI in 1935. He graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School and attended Lawrence University.

After graduating from college in 1956, he entered the Air Force. A lifelong dream was fulfilled when he graduated from flight school. After leaving the service as a First Lieutenant in 1959, he began his career in retail at Dayton’s Department store in Minneapolis, MN. In 1963 he returned to Wisconsin to join the H.C. Prange Co. where he was a Vice President and Store Manager in several communities until 1992. In addition, he served as a member of the Board of Directors of First Wisconsin of Wausau.

John was committed to the betterment of his community and left a legacy of civic leadership and volunteerism. He was a member of the Wausau Area Chamber of Commerce from 1974 to 1981 and served as President from 1979 to 1980. He was a board member and President of Habitat for Humanity. He was a member of the Salvation Army Advisory Board and the Family Counseling Services Board. As a United Way volunteer, he was a Division Co-Chairman and Loaned Executive. He diligently promoted the development of the Wausau Center and as President of the Marathon County Civic Corporation, he worked tirelessly with local and state representatives to ensure the ongoing existence of a ski area at Rib Mountain State Park.

John loved to ski. He was part of the Sturgeon Bay ski team. They were the first Sturgeon Bay team ever to go to state. Not only did they go, they won!!! Later in life he was a medalist in the Badger State Games. If you ski, you may celebrate his life by skiing down the run named in his honor, Prange’s Glade at Granite Peak. He was an avid sailor, always challenging the waves of Lake Michigan. He also relished his time as a pilot, remaining fascinated with aeronautics throughout his life. What he cherished the most was the time spent at his family cabin in Door County with family and friends.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Judy Anne Prange; one daughter, Mary Lou (Jim) Prange-Jones, and two sons John Prange and former spouse Karin Klarer, and Robert (Heidi) Prange; also four grandchildren; Will, Neil, Jackson and Hannah Prange and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was born September 16, 1933, in Hatley, daughter of the late Alexander and Elizabeth (Kuklinski) Grabko. Paulina grew up during the Great Depression. She was the oldest daughter of a family of eight, four brothers and three sisters. She and her seven siblings walked daily to a one room school in the town of Reed. All they knew was the Polish language but when used at school they were punished. Paulina went to school until the age of 16 and started her first job at Marathon Electric.

On August 13, 1955 she married Albert Peter Dombrowski at St. Ladislaus Catholic Church, Bevent. They were blessed with four children. Life was busy for them when suddenly Albert’s life ended short on May 18, 1962. As life would have it, six years later Paulina found love again and on September 28, 1968 she married Vernon Rudolf Fellbaum at St. Ladislaus Catholic Church, Bevent. They farmed, traveled, and enjoyed life up until Vernon passed on March 6, 1996 due to cancer.

After Pauline left the farm she enjoyed a part time job at Schlotzky’s Deli where she baked. She loved to can, with her Kerr Jars and a day of canning was like a holiday to her. She loved to highlight how many quarts she could do in one day. Pauline also loved to reminisce about the events that happened on the birthday of her children, including weather conditions and the number of hours of labor. Randy was a morning delivery and was quick. Renee in turn was many hours of labor. Suzie was easier than expected and resulted in her giving birth to Randy, 11 months later.

Paulina was the family’s laundry mat and could get any stain out. She had her own remedies which included boat cleaner. She also loved polka music, fishing, and Hodag. She enjoyed riding in her late husband, Albert’s 1924 Model T and most of all she loved her children and grandchildren. Paulina loved taking care of all the babies in the family, her greatest passion was doing for others. There is a loss for words all the good things our mother has done in her lifetime but one thing is for sure Paulina was truly and amazing and special woman. All of our lives will never be the same. Her big heart was priceless.

Fayette VanRyn

Fayette Joy (Felten) Van Ryn slept into her Savior’s arms and eternal rest just after midnight, Sunday, February 18, 2018, after an eighteen-month struggle with bone cancer. She was born on December 18, 1937, to Carl and Frieda (Heuss) Felten in Schofield, Wisconsin.

Fayette graduated from D. C. Everest High School, class of 1955. She studied accounting for one year at the UW Extension (now UWMC) in Wausau, then worked full time in the payroll department at the Marathon Corporation (now Domtar) before marrying William (Bill) Van Ryn, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, on August 29, 1959, and moved to Grand Rapids. In 1965 Fayette and Bill, with their three children, moved to Puerto Rico as missionaries, where their fourth son was born, continuing there in ministry until 1975. They then moved to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, continuing in missionary activity with Hispanics locally as well as in travels to several Central or South American countries.

After her sons were grown Fayette worked as a CNA in Florida. She loved caring for folks in need or in pain. She had a heart full of the love and compassion of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was very active most of her life ministering to children in neighborhood Bible classes and Sunday schools. A favorite project was the Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry and she was always shopping for items to fill hundreds of shoeboxes over the years.

A favorite Scripture of Fayette’s was Proverbs 31 (read it), taking it seriously as a model for her life; she was a classic Proverbs 31 woman, a truly liberated (in Christ) woman who ran an efficient household, and her husband supported her and trusted her absolutely.

Fayette and Bill returned to live in Weston in 2001.

Fayette was preceded in death by her grandparents and parents, several aunts and uncles, and her brother Roger.

Sherrie Lynn Abt

Sherrie Lynn Abt, 59, Wausau, died Saturday, February 17, 2018 at her home surrounded by her loving family following a four year battle with liver cancer.

Sherrie was born March 20, 1958 in Merrill to Herbert and Irene (Dahl) Riehle. She grew up on the family farm in Athens with her eight siblings. Sherrie attended Catholic School in Athens until the 8th grade and went on to graduate from Athens High School in 1976. Over the years, she farmed, worked for Marathon Cheese and spent the past 20 years with Kolbe & Kolbe working as a window sill manufacturer until this past November when her illness prevented her from working any more. Sherrie married Bruce Abt on September 3, 1993 in their home.

Sherrie was a very caring and selfless mother who never had a bad word to say about anyone. She never missed the opportunity to tell the ones she cared for that she loved them and compulsively hugged everyone. While living in Marathon, her outstanding gardening skills and green thumb led her to raise many successful gardens. In her free time, Sherrie enjoyed singing karaoke; especially the Carpenters, Stevie Nicks and Areosmith, which was an extension of her musical talents that she had since she was a child.

Sherrie’s strength and determination through hardship will never be forgotten. In 1993 she lost an eye to ocular melanoma; she worked through the change by relearning how to drive and continuing on with her life. Cancer returned four years ago when she was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and her tough resolve granted her four more years together with her friends and family while receiving treatment from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and Aspirus Oncology Department.

Sherrie is survived by her husband of 24 years, Bruce; children, Mandy and Travis (fiancée, Mao); grandchildren, Harley, Mariyah, Sierra and Mary; parents, Herbert and Irene Riehle; siblings, Shirley (Leon) Lewandowski, Steven (Jean) Riehle, Scott Riehle, Susan (John) Kamenick, Sally Ziech, Stanley (Marcia) Riehle, Stephen (Sara) Riehle and Stacie Ziegel; mother-in-law, June Abt; brothers and sisters-in-law, Allan “Jay”, Tammy (Chris), Barry, Lisa (Brian), Nancy (Brian), Pat (Marina), Steve (Cheryl), Mary (Ken), Susan (Frank), Faith (Steven) and David (Debra); cats, Buster and Maizy Baby; and extended family and friends. She is preceded in death by her father-in-law, Edward Abt.
