Sarah Marie Lasee


By Huehns Funeral Home




Sarah Marie Lasee, 35, of Jacksonport, was called Home to the Lord, Tuesday night, December 27, 2016 at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, following a five-year battle with cancer.

She was born September 15, 1981 at St. Vincent Hospital, the daughter of John Anthony Lasee and Debra Ann (Gallagher) Lasee. Sarah attended school at Sevastopol and graduated with the Pioneer class of 2000. She remained a Pioneer as she continued her education at Carroll College (now Carroll University) in Waukesha. Sarah graduated in 2004 with a degree in journalism and communications with a minor in photography. She wrote for the Pioneer Times in high school and college.

Everyone who knew Sarah knew that she lived to help others. Her career jobs did not define her, but all of her various employments allowed her to live out that life of service. Sarah was truly a jack-of-all-trades – capable of anything and there to assist with everything. She was a free spirit. Her initial employment as an office manager for Dr. Judy Night, a pediatrician in Illinois, began when she took a close friend up on her request for a roommate. She continued her work as an office manager at J.F. Menzia and Sons, a rotary equipment company in Milwaukee, and was most recently a part of the team at Interstate Sealant & Concrete in Milwaukee. Sarah started out at ISC as a temp and eventually created her (task management) position with all that she was able to help with and oversee to completion. She loved her friends at ISC.

Sarah was a skilled photographer, without question a "professional traveler" and an avid reader.  While she had a great passion for photography, she vowed not to allow that be her "job," and focused on taking pictures that were meaningful to her.

Sarah was even a notary public at one point, however the titles she was most proud of were "sister," "aunt," "godmother," and "friend." She loved spending time with family and hanging out with friends.  You could always count on Sarah to call you at the most inopportune times to meet up for a burger from Mike's Port Pub in Jacksonport (her favorite).

In September of 2015, Sarah returned home to Jacksonport from Franklin where she was living, in anticipation of recovery from surgery that she would be having. While her fight with cancer lasted five years, her impact on all those she knew and the loved she shared with us all will live on forever.

Sarah will be deeply missed by her parents, John and Debbie Lasee of Jacksonport; four siblings, Jennifer (Bobby) Deggendorf of Sturgeon Bay, Adam (Jamie) Lasee of Green Bay, Emily (Andrew) Schwark of Sevastopol, and Anthony Lasee of Sturgeon Bay; four nephews, Charlie Deggendorf, Andersen (her godson) and Ellis Lasee, and Nolan Schwark; maternal grandparents, Patrick and Mary (Stangel) Gallagher of Green Bay; aunts and uncles; cousins; many friends; and her cats, Milly and Lilly.

She was welcomed Home by her paternal grandparents, Francis and Theresa (Searth) Lasee.

Sarah's life will be honored with a Mass of Christian Burial held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, January 2, 2017 at Stella Maris Parish-Jacksonport site (formerly St. Michael's Catholic Church), her home parish, with Fr. David Ruby as celebrant. Feel free to wear mis-matched socks and bright colors in her memory. Sarah will be laid to rest in St. Joseph Mausoleum.

Visitation for family and friends will be held from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., Sunday, January 1, 2017 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay with the Rosary to be prayed at 2:45 p.m. and a parish wake service to be held at 5:00 p.m. Visitation will continue at the church, Monday morning, from 10:00 a.m. until the time of Mass.

Memorials may be given in Sarah's memory for The Healing Project (through Door County Medical Center in Sturgeon Bay).

"A heartfelt thanks goes out to the entire staff of Green Bay Oncology at the Door County Cancer Center, Dr. George Bobustuc and Dr. Amin Kasaam at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center in Milwaukee for the excellent care given to Sarah. Thank you to Fr. David Ruby and Becky Nash for visiting and ministering to Sarah; in the days before her passing, her faith brought her comfort. And a special thank you goes out to Sarah's family, especially her aunts, and her friends, especially, Katie Simonar, for the loving care you gave to Sarah."

Condolences, memories, and photos of Sarah may be shared with her family via her tribute page at www.huehnsfuneralhome.com.

"Be Sarah Strong."

Bonnie Jean Warwick


By Huehns Funeral Home




Bonnie Jean Warwick, 63, of Sturgeon Bay, died peacefully Monday night, December 19, 2016 in the comfort of her home with her family at her side.

She was born January 13, 1953 in Rhinelander, the daughter of Kenneth Robert Wells and Ruth Jeanette (Carlson). Following her graduation from Rhinelander High School in 1971, she went on to study accounting at Nicolet College in Rhinelander, earning her degree in 1973. Bonnie was locally employed at various places prior to moving to Sturgeon Bay in the late 1980s. Sturgeon Bay and other Door County residents as well as visitors will probably remember Bonnie as having been their waitress at My Sister's Café, the Corner Café, and most recently at Kimz Galley Café until her health prevented her from working in May of 2016.

On February 29, 1996, she was united in marriage to the love of her life, Gary Steven Warwick, in Sturgeon Bay. They shared over 15 years of marriage together, although Bonnie often joked that they only celebrated four wedding anniversaries as they were married on a leap year.

Together, Bonnie and Gary enjoyed camping as property owners at Harbour Village in Carlsville in Door County. For five straight years, they were recognized for having the best decorated site during Halloween and Christmas in July. Bonnie also liked gardening, playing bingo, and going to the movies. She was a member of TOPS, the YMCA, and also bowled in the women's league at Apple Valley Lanes, all in Sturgeon Bay. Bonnie loved spending time with her family.

Those who knew her, knew how tough and what a fighter she was, having lived with multiple sclerosis nearly half her life and battling cancer several times over the past 10 years.

Bonnie will be missed by her three daughters, Stephanie (Josh) DuBois, Amy (Rodrick Jr.) Steward, Nicole (Chris Whipple) Warwick, all of Sturgeon Bay; ten grandchildren; one great-grandson; sister and brother, Linda (Vernon) Slack, Mark (Louise) Wells, all of Rhinelander; aunts and uncles; nieces and nephews; great-nieces and great-nephews; and her best friend and companion (her dog), Pugsley.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents; father, Kenneth Wells, mother and stepfather, Ruth (John "Jack") Bartholomae; her husband, Gary; brother, Kenneth "Punky" Wells; six young siblings; aunts and uncles; and nieces and nephews.

Bonnie's life will be honored with a memorial service held at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 2, 2017 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay with Chaplain Mark Richards officiating. Burial will be amongst family in Northland Memorial Park in Rhinelander.

Barbara married George Jaegers in Milwaukee on Nov. 27, 1961.  She was an excellent wife homemaker, mother, and grandmother.  They bought their first home in Brookfield.  Barbara always stood with George in all of his endeavors.  They moved to the Chicago area in 1974 and lived there until retiring to Algoma in 1994.  They ran the River Hills Motel in Algoma for five years before building Bay Road Place (assisted living) which they owned and operated for 14 years.  Barbara was on the Algoma Library Board for a short time after they moved to Algoma.

By Huehns Funeral Home




June Dorothy (Kuehn) De Meuse, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, 93, of the Town of Sevastopol, Sturgeon Bay, fell asleep in the loving arms of her family and awoke in the arms of the Lord, Saturday afternoon, December 10, 2016 while at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

She was born at the family home (Mathey Rd. and Monument Point Rd.) in the Town of Egg Harbor on July 15, 1923, the daughter of Otto and Johanna "Hannah" (Mosgaller) Kuehn. June attended Carlsville school and graduated from Sevastopol High School in 1941. She initially worked as a welder for Leathem Smith Shipyard in Sturgeon Bay during World War II. On November 18, 1944, June was united in marriage to Elmer Edward De Meuse at Saints Peter and Paul Parish in Institute where she was a lifelong member. They were blessed with nearly 48 years of marriage. Elmer preceded June in death on August 18, 1992.

Through her church, she was a member of the Ladies Altar Society and the Lakeside Band.

June loved to travel. Mexico became a second honeymoon for June and Elmer. She and her sister, Hannah, would often talk about the fun they had together in Hawaii. June had many talents, cooking, gardening, canning, flower arranging, stitchery and much more. She will always be remembered for being an amazing baker. Visitors and family were always well fed and taken care of when visiting her home. June loved her house, and decorating it beautifully brought great joy to her, but her greatest joy in life was making a loving home for Elmer and her children. Gathering together at June's home each year for her birthday became something her family, friends, and neighbors always looked forward to - a celebration of June's life. June put God before all else, and through Him, she drew strength. Being a good Christian was central to June's life and was evident in everything that she would do.

Her love will live on in the hearts of her daughter, Judy (Brian) Orthober of Sturgeon Bay, six sons, Jim (Dianne) De Meuse of Luxemburg, Jerry (Diane) De Meuse of Pulaski, Ken (Barb) De Meuse of Minnetonka, MN, Joe (friend, Kathy) De Meuse of Sturgeon Bay, Danny De Meuse (at home) Sturgeon Bay, Larry (Maggie) De Meuse of Sturgeon Bay; 15 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren.

June was preceded in death by her parents; 11 brothers and sisters, infant brother, Charlie, Otto, Mary Guralski, Rose Kubbernus, Joseph, Frank, Anton, Charles, infant brother, Louis, Hannah Entringer and infant daughter, Evelyn.

No greater honor was given to her son Danny, than to take care of his mother, June; they were inseparable, doing everything together; they were best friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 17, 2016 at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Institute with Fr. Robert Stegmann as celebrant. June will be laid to rest in the Shrine of the Good Shepherd Mausoleum at Nicolet Memorial Gardens in the Town of Scott, Green Bay.

Family and friends may call from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 16, 2016 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay with the Rosary to be prayed at 3:40 p.m. and a parish wake service to be held at 7:00 p.m. Visitation will continue at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Saturday morning, from 10:00 a.m. until the time of Mass.

Dony DeFere


By Huehns Funeral Home




Dony DeFere, age 60, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away unexpectedly Monday December 5, 2016 at his home.

He was born January 29, 1956 in Sturgeon Bay to the late Donald O. and Jeanette D. (Laubenstein) DeFere.  He attended Sturgeon Bay High School. As a youth, Dony was always known as a daredevil and even raced motocross. He loved riding motorcycles, especially his Screaming Eagle Harley, liked listening to rock'n roll (the harder the better), and enjoyed watching the Packers as well as snowmobiling, scuba diving and boating. Important things in life for Dony were his children and spending time with his grandchildren, taking their pictures, and hanging out with friends at Waterfront Mary's.

Never being afraid to try anything, he worked at various professions throughout his working life. Dony painted water towers, did underwater welding, delivered propane and drove semi over the road throughout the country. He always enjoyed taking pictures of beautiful sunsets and mountains while on the road.

Dony was always smiling and had a great sense of humor. We will miss that sly smile and memorable laugh. He loved people, was outgoing, and was always open and accepting with anyone. He could enter a room as a stranger and leave as everyone's friend, and he would talk with everyone and get to know them more. Dony was always interested in what was going on and liked to be involved. When he was driving over the road, he would check in and would always end his conversation with, "Tell everyone I love them."

Dony is survived by his three children, daughter, Karli (Chuck) Spahr of Oakdale, MN, two sons, Jason DeFere and Stephan (Hope) DeFere of Sturgeon Bay; Jason and Stephan's mother, Mary DeFere of Sturgeon Bay; nine grandchildren, Samantha, Cody and Hunter Spahr, Jacob, Sage, Emiah, Calla Rose, Soleil and Ruby DeFere; two sisters, Diane (Edward) Jones of Sturgeon Bay; Andrea Bakalar of Sturgeon Bay; nieces and a nephew; many great nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Jeanette DeFere; and his brother-in-law, Horace "Duke" Dusendschon.

A memorial service will be held 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 15, 2016 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay. Friends may call on Thursday, December 15, 2016 from 4:00 p.m. until the time of service.

She also loved and played music in her spare time along with astrology.  Mom loved Door County and her works of art captured her favorite scenes.
