Marvin A. Beilfuss, 89, of the Town of Sturgeon Bay, was called Home to be with the Lord, early Sunday morning, October 30, 2016 while at Ministry Door County Medical Center with family at his side.

He was born March 13, 1927 in Shawano, the son of Ewald and Margaret (Strutz) Beilfuss. Marvin attended school in Shawano and grew up working on the family farm in addition to working various jobs for neighbors. He met Beatrice Koeller while at a husking bee, and they were married on September 22, 1946.  Marvin was initially employed at a factory in Shawano and operated a filling station in Cecil until 1952 when he and his family moved to Sturgeon Bay. Over the next 37 years, Marvin worked tirelessly in the shipyards and also as a dairy farmer, eventually owning and operating his own dairy farm two miles north of Carlsville, in the Town of Egg Harbor on Highway 42. He even owned and operated his own bar in Brussels (now the Brussels Countryside Diner).

Marvin served on the Door County Board of Supervisors, was a constable for the Town of Egg Harbor, and was later deputized a sheriff's deputy by Sheriff Hollis Bridenhagen. 1992, Marvin and Beatrice moved to their retirement home on Canal Road. He enjoyed traveling, picking blackberries, and going on early morning fishing trips with Beatrice. First and foremost in Marvin's life, though, were his faith, family, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his loving wife of over 70 years, Beatrice of Sturgeon Bay; eight children, Joan (Bob) Somers of Elkhorn, Jack (Nancy) Beilfuss of Kaukauna, Jerry (Renate) Beilfuss of Green Bay, Jeff Beilfuss of Sturgeon Bay, Marvin Beilfuss, Jr., Jon (Joan) Beilfuss, both of Egg Harbor, Judy (Don) LeMieux of Sturgeon Bay, and Jan (Dawn) Beilfuss of Clarksville, TN; 21 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren; two siblings, Elaine Gueths and Gerald (Pat) Beilfuss; many nieces and nephews; and friends.

Marvin is reunited with his parents; two sons, Joel and (baby) Jay Beilfuss; and four siblings, Ruth Sherf, Allen (Adeline) Beilfuss, Jim Beilfuss, and Harry and (Wilma) Beilfuss.

His life will be honored with a funeral service held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at Zion Ev. Lutheran Church in West Jacksonport with Pastor Peter Lindemann officiating. Marvin will be laid to rest in the Shrine of the Good Shepherd Mausoleum at Nicolet Memorial Gardens in the Town of Scott (Green Bay).

Memorials may be given for Zion Ev. Lutheran Church or the Alzheimer's Association. (Mention the Marvin Beilfuss tribute account for donations sent directly to the Alzheimer's Association).

Norma Marjorie Schmiling Mueller

Born in Algoma, WI on Feb. 26, 1922 to Carl and Alma (nee Ruenke) Schmiling

She graduated from Algoma High School in 1938 and completed high school in 3 years.  Her brother Mike made a bet with her about graduating in 3 instead of 4 years and she was determined to show that she could do it.  The internal strength and persistence to accomplish goals stuck with her.

She worked at Red Owl, Algoma Net, Plumber's Woodwork and Kaukauna Cheese.  Besides her favorite roles of wife, mother, grandma and cook and seamstress extraordinare, she enjoyed her job at St. Paul's Lutheran School as a teacher's aide and was thrilled to know that her grandson was following in her footsteps to become a teacher.

She married Harold "Pete" Mueller on April 15th, 1939.  They lived in Algoma for most of their lives with a few years in Kaukauna, WI.  He preceded her in death on April 15th, 1976.

She is survived by her children, Larry (Kathleen) Mueller and Mary Bea (Steve) Curtin and their families, Christopher (Motria) Caudill and their daughters Tess and Vika and Jackson, Cathleen and Emma-Grace Curtin and a sister-in-law, Frances Schmiling along with many nieces and nephews.

Along with Pete, she was preceded in death by her parents and in-laws, Edwin and Emma Mueller and siblings and siblings in law:  Beattie (Rob) Schley, LeRoy (Loretta) Schmiling, Minette (Vic) Kolstad, Via (Hank) Jacobs, Elbert (Olive) Schmiling, Mae (Erv) Krueger, Dorothy (Lester) Wolske, Gordon "Mike" Schmiling, Alma Lou Schmiling, Paul (Catherine) Mueller, Alfred "Bing" (Mag) Mueller, Fred (Lauretta) Mueller, Eleanor (Earl) Sibilsky, Leone Mueller, Carl (Lorinda) Mueller, Alvina Mueller and Lois Rogers.

She loved spending time with her family and friends and had many happy memories of picnics, holidays, birthdays and card parties.  One of her favorite hobbies was sewing blankets with her sister Dorothy and she often sewed matching outfits for family members including dolls.  She also enjoyed cross stitching, needlepoint and cooking with her sisters and sister in laws especially lefsa, streudel and cherry soup.  No one left any of our family meals hungry and you often left with food to take home.  She earned the nickname of Grandma Cookie bestowed up her by her grandchildren and extended Curtin family and friends.

She was a storyteller and loved books and reading to her grandchildren. She would quiz them on nursery rhymes and the names of their fingers in Norwegian which she learned from her brother-in-law Vic.  She could be seen for many years walking around Algoma in the morning with her good friends Millie Rabas and Verna Kratz.

She was a lifelong member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church and had a strong faith that got her through the ups and downs in our earthly lives. She believed in the value of an education, loyalty, hard work and above all being kind to everyone.  She believed in the goodness of people.

Friends may call at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Algoma from 9 AM, Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016 until the time of services at 11 AM with Rev. Joel McKenney officiating.  Burial in the Evergreen Cemetery, Algoma.

Our heartfelt thanks to all who cared for, visited, called and wrote to Mom.  She treasured having you in her life.  We appreciate the care provided to her by the caring staffs at Algoma Long Term Care, Bay Road Assisted Living, the ER Team at Bellin Health and Schinderle Funeral Home.

In her high school yearbook, her teachers wrote this about her "Stay as Sweet as You Are".  All who `know her would say this was true for her entire life. She was much loved and will be missed.

The SCHINDERLE FUNERAL HOME, Algoma, assisted the family with arrangements.

By Huehns Funeral Home




Samuel E. Vana, 75, of Sturgeon Bay, died Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

He was born February 7, 1941 to Samuel and Anna (Danko) Vana. After attending Lane Tech High School in Chicago, IL, Sam enlisted in the United States Coast Guard where he served from 1960 to 1964 when he was honorably discharged. On February 10, 1962, Sam married Barbara E. May at St. Eugene Catholic Church in Chicago. She died in an automobile accident August 17, 2001.

Sam worked as a lithographer with Black Dot Inc. for many years in Chicago until his retirement. Soon after retirement, they moved to South Lake Michigan Drive where he has enjoyed these past 20 years. Following Barb's death, Sam was a familiar, friendly face at our local Wal-Mart store where he worked at the checkouts.

Sam loved the outdoors, but in order of importance, he never lost his love of the water. He loved fishing and captaining his boat around the canal and the bay of Green Bay. Great enjoyment was had in the solitude of his home, sitting for long periods looking into his woods, watching the deer and wildlife out of his kitchen windows. Those times enjoyed with family and friends were most important to Sam: watching plays at Peninsula Players, fishing with family and friends, bowling leagues, Packer games, chopping wood, using power tools, and Sonny's Pizza.

He will be missed by his three daughters, Mary Jo (Michael) Denz of Dunedin, FL, Bonnie (Steve) Leffler of Crystal Lake, IL, Cristine Vana of Sturgeon Bay; three grandchildren, William Zachary (Kristan) Valleau, Jaclyn Denz, Robyn (Ben) Kuracka; one great-granddaughter, Kiera Francis Valleau; sister, Diane Piette of Indianapolis, IN; sister and brother-in-law, Kathleen (David) Kuffner of Wilmette, IL; his neighbors on SLMD; and many friends.

Sam was preceded in death by his parents; dear wife, Barbara; and brother-in-law, Mike Piette.

A celebration of Sam's life will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay. Military honors will follow at the funeral home.

Friends may call at Huehns Funeral Home on Saturday from 1:00 until the time of services.

Edward Tlachac

[singleImage image="6026" img_size="full" img_width="0" img_height="0" img_link_target="_self" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

After a courageous battle with cancer, Edward Tlachac, 81, Luxemburg, has joined our Lord. With his entire family at his side, Ed passed away on Saturday, Oct.15, 2016.

He was born on February 26, 1935 to the late Edward and Jennie (Kinnard) Tlachac.

He married Margie Daul on September 3th, 1956, and they just celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends.

Ed started his career as a manager with Wisconsin Liquor and after a few years, drove a delivery truck for 25 years for them.

He then was known as "Green Bean" owning his truck and working for Joe Boulanger Construction. Green Bean carried the first load of soil out of what is now known as Lake Largo, Green Bay.

After 3 years, Ed was employed by the Village of Luxemburg, while at the same time, owned and operated Tlachac's Village Inn with Margie for 18 years.

Ed joined the Luxemburg Community Fire Dept. as a volunteer fireman in 1959 and was appointed Fire Chief in 1991. Ed took tremendous pride in serving for 41 years. During that time, Ed was very instrumental in building the great fire dept. that we have serving our community today. He worked side by side with multiple County chairmen in the process. Ed retired as Fire Chief in 2002.

Ed was a member of the Retired Fire Chief's Association, member of the Holy Name Society at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Luxemburg, and The Lions Club.

He received the "Community Service" award from the Chamber of Commerce for his many contributions to the village. Most recently, Ed was honored with the first annual "L-C Football Fan of the Year" award, for 40+ years of sons and grandsons playing football.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and his beloved dog "Poppy," going up to his cottage, watching all sports, and hunting the illusive huge white tail deer; though there was not much venison on the Tlachac table! Anybody who knew Ed, knew how much he truly enjoyed cutting his lawn and he took great pride in his lawn and landscaping. He also had one of the best decorated houses during the Christmas Holidays!
