Paul M. Lauscher

PAUL LAUSCHER, 75, Kewaunee, died Saturday, August 15, 2020 one day
after celebrating his 75 th birthday. Born in the Town of Casco to the late Peter
and Frances (Blahnik) Lauscher. He grew up on the Lauscher homestead
which was acquired from the U.S. government in 1857. He farmed all his life
on this farm. He would like to say that he did milk cows for 49 ½ years and
sold the cows in 2012. He cashed cropped for several years and now was
renting out the land and just enjoyed watching the large equipment planting
crops and other people contending with weather conditions.
Born August 14, 1945, he attended Alaska Graded School and then graduated from Casco High School in
1963. On November 7, 1981 he married Edith Jerabek. They farmed together until the farm was rented
out. He served on the Alaska Farmers Cooperative board, Casco FS and Kewaunee County Farm Bureau
boards. He was a great promoter of the Dairy and Farming Industry. It was his life.
His enjoyment was attending old machinery shows, tractor pulls and having hamburger with a beer.
He is survived by his wife, Edith; Son James M. (Linda) Kielpikowski, Kewaunee; four grandchildren,
Michael, Joseph, Michelle, and Jessica Kielpikowski; sisters, Rosemary Wegner, Denmark, Marian Wery,
Sturgeon Bay, and Sue (Francis) Jadin, New Franken; brother-in-law Earl Jerabek, Kewaunee, sisters-in-
law, Ethel (Donald) Cain, Casco, and Emily (Jayme) Rankin, DePere.
