Roger M. Nulton


By Paul Schmitt




Roger M Nulton, 86 passed away peacefully Sunday, August 27 at home in Egg Harbor while surrounded by his loving family. The son of the late Major General Henry G Nulton and J. Eleanore Nulton of Hillside New Jersey was born on November 10, 1930. Roger and his wife Marilynn F Nulton celebrated their blissful marriage of 62 years this past June.

With a masters degree in microbiology from Rutgers University Roger was the Director of Operations and Technology in the Grocery Products Division for Kraft Foods in Chicago, IL for 35 years. Roger was the recipient of the Chairman's award which recognized extraordinary business achievements in the areas of marketing, research and development. He retired in June 1992 when he and Marilynn started their new journey in life in Naples, FL where they spent their winters. As snow birds they flew the coop back up to their home here in Egg Harbor for the glorious summer and fall months.

While enjoying their time in Naples, they were active members of the Lakewood Country Club where Roger served on the board. He was often seen as a competitor on the tennis court and golf course. He and his brother Ed had enjoyed challenging one another with healthy competition. Roger also volunteered for the past 22 years at the Naples Community Hospital, and was dedicated to his daily workouts at the Naples Wellness Center.

Door County was Marilynn's idea of paradise, and Roger was more than happy to make that happen for them. Once their home was built Roger had an enthusiasm to give back to the community. Over the past 22 years Roger had enjoyed the fellowship and comradery of the Door County Habitat for Humanity crew. Their dedication and talents provided a hand up to their neighbors. Once again Roger's unyielding self-discipline to fitness and health had him at the YMCA seven days a week. He was greeted by many as he cruised Bay Shore Drive in his blue mini cooper convertible, floppy hat on, music cranked as he sang out What a Wonderful World.

Cruising the globe with friends and family enriched Roger and Marilynn's lives as they experienced various cultures and people. Roger was an acquired taste! Those who knew him always felt his presence. He was a one of a kind guy and the world is a better place because of his generosity, humor, compassion and willingness to be there for others. We can't say patient or flexible, but he was a great man.

Roger's greatest passion was his family. He is survived by his wife Marilynn, daughter, Marsha (David) Lidbury, son, Roger M Nulton Jr, five grandchildren, Jessie (Serhij) Duford , Ben (Katie) Lidbury, Roger (Kelley) Nulton, Ryan (Lauren) Nulton, Kaitlin Nulton and their mother Katherine Nulton. Brother, Edmund (Nancy) Nulton

Memorial service will be held Saturday, September 9th at 10:00. Church of the Atonement Episcopal 9390 Cottage Row, Fish Creek, WI

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations made in the memory of Roger Nulton to the Door County Habitat for Humanity Organization 410 North 14th Ave Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235.

Special heartfelt thanks to Dr. Richard Hogan and Unity Hospice for their compassion and support.

Harry and Kaye moved to Door County, Wisconsin in 1985. Harry worked as a real estate agent and appraiser but his favorite activities were the monthly potluck gatherings with great new friends that endured for 26 years and his tutoring work with Conversation Partners, teaching English to a Spanish-speaking student.

 

Harry was known by friends and family as a man of great wit who could tell a story that captured everyone's attention and produced cascades of laughter. His interests varied from physics and philosophy to The Real Housewives of Orange County. He was an artist with a natural talent for portrait drawing and cartoons, and someone who could invent, design and fix just about anything. He was a humble man of character and virtue who taught his children and grandchildren many lessons by the example he set.

Kenneth J. Marcelle


By Huehns Funeral Home




Kenneth Joseph Marcelle, 82, formerly of Sturgeon Bay, passed away Sunday evening, August 6, 2017 at Good Samaritan Society-Scandia Village in Sister Bay. He had been living with Alzheimer's disease the past 10 years.

Ken was born November 14, 1934 in the Town of Lincoln in Kewaunee County, the only child of the late Joseph and Fyrn (Cain) Marcelle. He grew up on the west side of Sturgeon Bay (formerly known as Sawyer) before going off to attend and board at St. Norbert High School in De Pere. Upon graduating, he went to study at the Maritime Marine Academy, and soon after that, he began his 44-year career as a Merchant Marine on the Great Lakes. He retired as chief engineer in 1999.

Ken was united in marriage to Carol Ann Kalms on February 11, 1956 at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Institute. They shared nearly 50 years of marriage together. Carol preceded Ken in death on February 8, 2005.

He was a member of St. Joseph Parish in Sturgeon Bay and the Knights of Columbus. Ken had a great sense of humor and was always quick with a joke. He loved football, especially the Packers, dogs, dining out, and riding his scooter. We think seldom has one Yamaha scooter had such high mileage. Most of all though, Ken was a generous man who was always ready to help someone in need.

He is survived by his three daughters and one son, Kelly (Tim Davitt) Marcelle of Evanston, IL and Ephraim, Kendall Marcelle of Fort Lauderdale, FL, Kevin (Alana Ali) Marcelle of Lake Worth, FL, and Kristi (Tomas Melian) Marcelle of Piedmont, CA [and their children, Alec, Andres, Katarina, Krystal, and Nicole].

Ken's life will be honored with a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, September 8, 2017 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Sturgeon Bay with Fr. Robert Stegmann as celebrant. A private family committal will follow at Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery in Institute.

Visitation for family and friends will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Friday morning, September 8, 2017 from10:00 a.m. until the time of Mass.

The Marcelle family wishes to thank all those friends, community acquaintances, and healthcare providers who continued to treat their dad with dignity over the years even as Alzheimer's disease took away his.

Phyllus Elaine (Wilson) Groves, 88, passed away Tuesday, August 1, 2017, at Pine Crest Village in Sturgeon Bay, following a short battle with lung cancer. She was born September 3, 1928, in Elgin, Illinois, to Sidney H. and Nellie M. (Bell) Wilson. Phyllus married James H. Groves on October 5, 1946 at House of Hope Presbyterian Church in Elgin. Jim preceded her in death on March 29, 2016.

Phyl and Jim lived in Elgin, Illinois until 2006, when they moved to Watertown, Wisconsin, to live near their daughter. In September, 2015, they moved to their beloved Door County, where they had spent family vacations since the 1940's. They also enjoyed spending several winters in Naples and Lake Worth, Florida. Phyllus hated to cook, but was a great hostess; loved to golf and bowl; and played in the same card club for 60 years. She graduated from Elgin High School in 1946, then worked at the Elgin Watch Factory and, for one day only, at Bloom's Restaurant, where her first customers waited a long time for lunch—Phyl delivered their salads, then walked out the back door, never to return! She was a professional corsetiere, training in Chicago and working in the foundations departments of both Ackemann's and Spiess Department stores in Elgin.

Phyllus is survived by a daughter, Deborah K. (Michael) Olesen of Sturgeon Bay; a son, Steven J. Groves of Elgin; a granddaughter, Stephanie K. (Matthew) Olesen-Bute of San Jose, California; a sister-in-law, Iris Groves of Streamwood; a brother-in-law, Ralph Thieman of The Villages, Florida; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, and her sister, Nan Jean Thieman.

A memorial service celebrating Phyllus' life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 12, 2017, at Pine Crest Village in Sturgeon Bay with Rev. Richard Feyen, of Hope Church, officiating.

In lieu of any flowers, the Groves family would appreciate that memorials be made to either Unity Hospice or the Door County YMCA.

     The family would like to thank Unity Hospice for their excellent care; and the staff at Pinecrest Village for their special, compassionate care. (Thanks so much, Katie for the butterfly "tattoo." Mom loved it, and as she said, "You gave me my wings"). Thanks to the Y Rats for their e-mails and visits, and a huge thank you to Lynn for her endless support and who, Mom said, "put a wiggle in my jiggle!" Friends are a wonderful thing.

Georgine Kretzmann


By Casperson Funeral Home




Georgine (Gee) Kretzmann of Ellison Bay, WI died peacefully June 22, at Hearthside Home in Sister Bay, with her husband Conrad (Connie) and son Mark at her bedside. She was born February 22, 1928 to Orlando and Charlotte E. Carner (Arndt), Cleveland, OH. Her first college experience was at Oberlin College, Oberlin OH before transferring to Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, IN where she earned a degree in English and met Connie.

 

Connie and Gee were married August 27, 1950 in Cleveland, OH. They lived in Chicago where their children Katherine, Peter, and Mark were born. In 1956 they moved to Libertyville, IL before retiring to Ellison Bay, WI in 1989. In 1995 they built a home on 10 acres of hay field thus the name Hayfield House. A perfect place for Gee's love of flower gardening.

 

Gee taught first grade for many years in Mundelein IL. Although small in stature, Gee was large in heart. Her years were filled with generosity, love and compassion. She and Connie displayed their generosity by sharing their Libertyville home with foreign exchange students and high school students in need of a home. In Door County at the Hayfield House they invited Shepherd of the Bay Church visitors and travel club members from throughout the world to stay with them. For decades Gee and her family prayed for and helped support an Indian Christian family. On Wednesday nights she served a plain rice supper, to instill in her children solidarity with those less fortunate and to send the savings generated from this low cost simple meal, to the India family.

 

Gee is survived by her husband Connie, her three children, Katherine Peters of Lindenhurst, IL, Peter (Nathalie) Kretzmann of Grangerville, ID, Mark ( Tammy) Kretzmann of Poy Sippi, WI and brother-in-law- Dick Lewis of Matteson, IL; seven grandchildren Sean Peters, Amanda Peters (Jason Demming), Abby (Kate) Ritter, Crispin (Jessica) Kretzmann, Eliah Kretzmann, Nicholas (Keisy) Kretzmann, Theodore Kretzmann, and four great-grandchildren. Gee was preceded in death by her sister Lois.

 

The family gives heartfelt thanks to Martha Coventry and her aides at Hearthside care center in Sister Bay for their compassionate, thoughtful and loving care.

 

On her 67th marriage anniversary weekend on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. a joyful service will be held at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay, WI in her memory and honor.

Carl J. Paplham


By Buchanan Funeral Home



Carl J. Paplham, 61, of Kewaunee passed away Sunday July 30th after a short but very brave and courageous battle with cancer with his wife by his side.



Carl was employed at Kewaunee Fabrications for 42 years. His love of the job and people produced endless stories and friends. He had a memory like no other that allowed him to effectively and quickly do his job so he could say hello to his co workers and visit his second love, the coffee machine. He could tell you any number you needed to know whether it be from 25 years ago or yesterday. His great mind could fix anything. All it took was a minute and a look over. He lived by the motto "if there's a will, there's a way" and he would find that way. Carl's love for farming was life long. From growing up on his home farm, the work ethic on the farm styed with him until the end. Carl didn't stay on the home farm, he became a very talented welder and fabricator. The farmer in Carl called him out to help two local farms. For many, many years Carl helped Dave and Nancy Smidle from day to day chores to fabrication and repair. When Dave and Nancy retired from farming carl couldn't stay away very long. Carl came back to help his nephew, Greg and Tammy Paplham on his home farm where he grew up on.Carl did day to day chores and field work, but he especially enjoyed working with his cousin, Jim Cherveny in the shop fabricating, fixing and rebuilding equipment. Meanwhile, Carl still worked a full time job at Kewaunee Fabrications. The hard working farmer stayed with Carl his whole life.

 

Carl will be deeply missed by his wife Jennifer, and his 5 children: Jordyn, Brandi (Jevin), Jaycey, Reyann, and his little girl Dekotah. He is also survived by his mother, Gladys Johanek. He is further survived by a brother and sister in law: Ronald and Kaye and their children Greg (Tammy), Jeff, and his special God daughter: Courtney (Ted) Mueller. Sister: June (Nolan) Karnopp and their children Kraig and Troy (Theresa), Sister: Cindy Konop (significant other Joe Dax) and her children Nicole and Krissy, Sister: Angie (Brian) Schulz and their children Brianna (Fiancé Nic) and Ashley (Brandon) Wagner. A special brother in law Richard (Donna) Flaherty and children Sonya (Scott) Wiegand, Julie (Rob ) Serbent, Wanda Flaherty, and Lori (Peter) Jelly, brother-in-law: Eric (significant other Deanna) Parkman and children Eric (Brittany), Conner, Ben, and Emma. Sister in law Jessica (Jeremy) Burrow and children Chance and Ryker. Father in law Burton (Barbara) Parkman and mother in law Donna (Ken) Schroeder. Very special cousin and friend Russ (Linda) Shillin. Numerous other nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his Father: Gilbert, Step-Father: Dan Johanek, Great Nephew: Cody Paplham.

 

Carl was a man who knew many and disliked none. He said hello to everyone and if they responded there was surely a conversation to follow. He always had a story, always. His gift to talk was like no other. We could stop to drop something by a friend and it would turn into a 5 hour story telling session by campfire. His stories will live on in us forever and surely keep us chuckling.

 

Friends may call after 1:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4 at Buchanan Funeral Home, Kewaunee. A parish wake service will be held at 7:00 p.m. Visitation continues on Saturday after 9:30 a.m. at Holy Rosary Church until the time of services. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 with burial of the urn following at Forest Hill Cemetery in the Town of Carlton. A funeral Lunch will be served at Lakehaven Hall following the services.

 

I would like to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Tahsildar, Dr. James, Lynn Kaanen and the entire Bellin Cancer team, his favorite nurse Mercedes who he jokingly renamed Wednesday and the Bellin Hospital 4th floor medical unit, Unity Hospice and Unity residence, especially nurses Jenn, Gwen, Heather, and Sandy, your care and compassion is remarkable, Kewaunee Fabrications and all their employees, Deacon Chuck and Eileen, the Walecka family for help with the house and chores, Dawn and Jason Valenta, Joanna and Gary Caflisch, and our entire support system of family and friends. Whether it was a text message, phone call, bringing me food and clothes, or a visit, the care, compassion, and concern we were shown in the last 7 weeks was exceptional and will never be forgotten.

 

Carl, not a day will go by that your family and friends won't think of you. You were truly an exceptional husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend and coworker. You will be missed beyond words. You will live on in every aspect of our lives forever. I hope you didn't get in trouble too much with dad for your childhood shenanigans and have found peace with him. I'm sure the farming stories are endless up there. Rest easy my chief, rest easy. Your little Fred, Red and Ed and I will keep things going here until we meet again.
