Joseph Michael Krentz

By Buchanan Funeral Home

Joseph Michael Krentz joined the love of his life on August 27, 2018, after a long courageous battle with cancer. Joseph was born August 28, 1951 to Felix and Marilyn Krentz in Olivia, Minnesota. Joseph grew up in Hector, MN surrounded by family. He excelled in school and was a great football and basketball player, even in his older years he was still a bulldog. After high school Joseph joined the Navy and traveled all over the world.

While stationed in New York he went to a 5 and Dime and met the love of his life, Marilyn, working behind the counter. After many visits of buying wcigarettes and tic tacs she finally realized why he was there everyday to see her. Joseph and Marilyn were married February 26; 1977 in Pottersville, NY. Joseph and Marilyn traveled all over the USA in their many years of marriage, spending most of their time in Wisconsin and finally spending their final years together in Washington. hi

He enlisted in the Navy to serve aboard nuclear submarines during the Cold War.  He retired after a very successful naval career as Master Chief of the Boat Krentz.   Joe began a second career managing projects in nuclear power plants and other power producing facilities in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest.  He always enjoyed a challenge and liked hard work until his declining health forced him to retire.

Joe saw much of the world, but one of his very favorite places on the planet was Disney World.  He was a lover of all things Disney, and his family made frequent trips to Florida to visit.  Joe always made sure that everyone, from his elderly mother to his little great grandson, experienced the same magic that he felt.   Those of us who loved Joe will surely find him there, in the laughter of children and the warmth of the sun.

Joe and Marilyn loved their family and they had three children together. Joe is survived by his sister Kathleen, Joseph II (Abbey), Greg, Elizabeth. Four grandchildren, Victoria (Blake), Joseph III, Danielle, and Jared, and his two great grandsons, Ezra and Dominic. He also has two loving Daughters-in-law Pamela and Lydia.

Joe was preceded in death by his wife of 42 years Marilyn, his mother and father, and his Father in law Daniel Duffy and mother in law Joan Duffy. Joe is survived by his children, grandchildren and great grand children.

Joe was a wonderful man who was always willing to help where needed. He was able to spend the last two months of his life in Wisconsin surrounded by his family. Joe and Marilyn are now together forever, they are what true love really is. Instead of flowers, the family requests you donate to cancer research.

A special thank you to Unity Hospice, especially Gwen, Mo, and Stacy for the loving care they gave Joe in his last few days.

Arlene Lawrenz

By Casperson Funeral Home

Arlene Lawrenz, age 86, passed away on August 21 following a long illness.

She was born in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin on October 25, 1931, to Ervin (Dick) and Mildred Wills. Her childhood nickname was "Pooney," though neither she nor anybody else could remember how that came to be. She graduated from Gibraltar High School and put her motto in her yearbook as "worry and I have never met," which her children reminded her of many times in later years.

She worked as a hairdresser after trade school. She married Mel Lawrenz, Jr. in 1954 with whom she had two children, Mel, and Lynne. She was widowed in her mid-twenties when her husband died suddenly from pneumonia. From then on she devoted herself to raising her two kids with absolute devotion. Arlene worked long hours in Wills' General Store and housekeeping cottages in Ellison Bay. She moved her small family to Green Bay where Mel and Lynne grew up through high school while she worked as an assistant nursery school teacher.

Those who knew her would say she was about the kindest and most gracious woman you could meet. So sweet, so good. A woman with deep faith. She was a sunbeam.

She is survived by her daughter Lynne (Don) Grasse and son, Mel (Ingrid) Lawrenz; by one sister, Renee Wesa, of Green Bay; and by four grandsons, Dane, Bret, Cole, and Christopher. She was preceded in death by her parents, by her beloved brother Gene Wills who teased her relentlessly when they were kids and loved her deeply as only a big brother can as adults, and by her precious granddaughter, Eva.

A memorial service will be held on Wed., Aug. 29 at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay at 11 am (10 am visitation) with a fellowship luncheon to follow.

Marian Jane Lichter

By Huehns Funeral Home       

Marian Jane Lichter, 98, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away on Thursday, August 9, 2018 at Anna's Healthcare.

She was born August 26, 1919 in Menominee, Michigan, the daughter of Walter and Olga (Jacobson) Albertson. Marian moved to Sister Bay at the age of five and attended the Sister Bay School and Sister Bay Baptist Church where she was baptized when she was 11. They then moved to Appleport, where she attended the Appleport one-room school and went on to graduate from Gibraltar High School in 1931.

Marian had worked the last two summers while going to high school for Anna and Eunice Pederson at Anna's Restaurant. After graduating, she went to Chicago to work in the winter and came back to Sister Bay to work for Anna and Eunice in the summer, as they had become very special to her.

When World War II broke out, she found a job in a defense plant of 4500 people and worked as a solder, welder, riveter, line inspector, and spot checker for one and a half years and then was given the job of government inspector. For six years during the war, she took on a full-time night job at the Golden Bell Greeting Card Factory and volunteered Saturday afternoons and evenings at the U.S.O. in Chicago, Illinois. Marian also volunteered at Hines G.I. Hospital on Sunday afternoons and evenings. She did all of this while still caring on her mother's tradition of going to church and dinner every Sunday.

Marian was united in marriage with Eldridge "Al" Lichter on February 20, 1953 in Chicago. In 1962, they moved to Door County with their two sons and attended the Sister Bay Moravian Church before attending the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church. They purchased and operated the Skylark Motel, the Choo-Choo Restaurant, and the Choo-Choo Hobby Shop in both, Ephraim and Sturgeon Bay.

In the early 1970's, she went on craft shows in Door, Kewaunee, and Brown Counties, as well as in Manitowoc, Milwaukee, and Michigan. Marian was noted for her hand-woven rugs, place mats, quilts, spreads, clown dolls, and big bird! They ended all their business ventures in 1981 but continued to do craft shows until 1993 when Al passed away. Marian then truly retired and moved to Bay Hill where she had a very special, kind, concerned manager – Ed Byrnes. She called her new place "Val Hala" (Viking Heaven) since it was so quiet and peaceful. There, Marian had help from very special friends – Ann and Mark Hill and family. When she was no longer able to attend the church services, she listened to church services on the radio and watched the Moravian Church on cable TV.

Marian is survived by her son, Jerry (Debbie) Lichter of Burlington; grandchildren, Lisa (Joshua) Werner of Mukwonago, Sheri (Ted) Spankowski of West Allis, and Anthony Lichter (Rayeanne Gates) of Waterford; great-granddaughters, Ella and Marlina Werner; and many cousins; and nieces and nephews scattered across the states.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Al; son, Michael; three brothers and sisters-in-law, Harvey (Doris) Albertson, Wallace (Beverly) Albertson, and Arnold Albertson; and two brothers-in-law, Roy Lichter and Earl Lichter.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay with the Rev. Dr. Matthew R. Knapp, Sr. officiating.  Marian will be laid to rest in Bayside Cemetery, beside her husband, Al.

Visitation for family and friends will be held at Huehns Funeral Home on Sunday, August 12, 2018 from 12:00 p.m. until the time of the funeral service.

Never fear, God is near.
