Bernard "Bernie" W. Geisel

Bernard “Bernie” W. Geisel, 79, of the Town of Sevastopol, died peacefully in the comfort of his home, Wednesday morning, December 19, 2018.

     Bernie was born May 30, 1939 in Sturgeon Bay the son of the late Emil and Grace Geisel. He attended S.S. Peter and Paul Catholic Grade School and was a proud Class of 1957 graduate of Sevastopol High School. Following the death of his parents before he turned 20, Bernie along with his siblings operated the farm. On August 21, 1965, he married Shirley Laher, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in her hometown of Medford, WI.

     Bernie and Shirley, along with their children, operated their dairy farm together. Over the years, Bernie enjoyed fun times with friends bowling, square dancing, polka dancing and snowmobiling. He and Shirley also enjoyed travel, which took them to destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Canada, but his favorite trips of all were to attend thresherees.

In 1983, he became a charter member of the Northeastern Wisconsin Antique Power Association. Bernie introduced the idea of having a thresheree to the club, which he and his family hosted on their farm for the first 15 years. The Valmy Thresheree just celebrated its 36th year in its current location one mile west of their farm. Bernie enjoyed demonstrating his antique farm machinery collection, which he acquired over many years. It was important to Bernie to leave behind a legacy of the significance of remembering our forefathers’ agricultural heritage.

     Bernie loved the challenge of fixing anything before replacing. He always had a spare part for everything! He thoroughly enjoyed being in the swamp making firewood. The accomplishment of naming Geisel Creek, which runs through more than seven miles of Geisel farmland, was very important to him. Bernie most of all enjoyed being surrounded by his family, whether picking stones, baling hay or impromptu gatherings. These were his favorite moments to share stories of his past.

     Bernie will be missed by his wife of 53 years, Shirley; five children and seven grandchildren, Jodie (Jesse) Schartner [Riley and Emilie], Jamie (Michael) Henschel [Mark, Brian and Kevin], Heidi Geisel, Wade Geisel and Tara (Aaron) LeClair [Alaina and Reid]; brother, Roy Geisel; siblings-in-law, Diane (Gary) Holmes, Wayne (Kathy) Laher and Jim (Sue) Laher; many nieces and nephews.

     He is preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Gertrude (Wallace) Abrahamson, Vione (Ronald) Beno and Laura (Robert) Fieweger; sister-in-law, Linda Geisel; parents-in-law, Herbert and Harriet Laher.

     His life will be honored with a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Institute, where Bernie is a lifelong member, at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, December 29, 2018 with Fr. Robert Stegmann as celebrant. Bernie will be laid to rest in the church cemetery.

Judith Porter

 Judith “Judy” Porter, 82, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 at home with her husband by her side.
     She was born on January 18, 1936 in Rhinelander, the daughter of the late John Orval and Lily Ann Schultz. She attended Rhinelander High School and was the first woman ever to receive the Rhinelander Paper Mill Scholarship. Judy and Harry met in Madison, while she attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The two were married on September 6, 1958 in Rhinelander. In 1959, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Nursing Education and Public Health from UW-Madison. 
     Judy’s first position was working as a Nursing Instructor at Madison General Hospital before she worked as a Psychiatric Nursing Instructor at Mendota Mental Health Institute also in Madison. She and Harry moved to Colorado where she was a Public Health Nurse in Fort Collins. They moved back to Wisconsin and she worked in Tomahawk at Tomahawk Hospital and then they moved to Appleton, where she worked at the Visiting Nurses Association. They ultimately settled in Sturgeon Bay, where they spent the next 50 years.
     For 13 years, Judy was Director of Public Health Nursing in Door County, where she was deputized in order to help with difficult situations. In 1980, with longtime friend Diane Kiehnau, Judy went on to open one of the first privately owned home health care services in the state of Wisconsin, named Porter Kiehnau Home Care Services. They were co-owners; Judy was the Director of Nursing and Diane was the Director of Finance and together they ran the business for almost 20 years. They were also both involved in initiating a state organization for home health care providers. At the same time, she and Diane also opened and operated an assisted living home called Cranberry Haus. Judy retired from nursing in 2000 and joined her husband in running their family business, Porter’s Pines, which was a Christmas tree business where they made wreaths and planted trees. Judy and Harry planted upwards of a million trees before retiring.
     Judy was honored by UW-Madison multiple times for her contributions to the nursing and home health care fields. She was a supporter and donor to the UW-Madison Alumni Association. She was a Past Worthy Matron of the Eastern Star and a lifelong Democrat, serving for several years as the Door County Chair of the Democratic Party. She was an active member of the Kiwanis organization and served as a past President. One of her biggest hobbies was collecting cookie jars, which is the reason her license plate was “Coki Jar”.
     In their younger days, Judy & Harry enjoyed downhill skiing. This was followed by sprintcar racing. They put many miles on their 5th wheel camper “chasin’ racing”. They also enjoyed going to plays, especially at the Roque Theater.
     Judy was well-known for her loving and caring personality and for promoting and supporting the expansion of the home health care industry. She cared deeply about her husband and pets, her businesses, patients, and staff, the Door County Community, and her friends and family. She was not only a very caring and kind person, but she also had a great sense of humor and really knew how to make others laugh. She was a joy to be around and will be greatly missed.
     Judy is survived by her loving husband, Harry; sweet dog, Minta; sister, Patricia (Ken) Lowden of Brookfield; brothers, Frank (Roswitha) Schultz of New Berlin and Fred (Carol) Schultz of Gold Canyon, AZ; sister-in-law, Linda Hill; and her nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and four great great-nephews, as well as many cousins.
     She was preceded in death by her parents; sister-in-law, Ann Mather; nephew, Fred Mather; and special niece, Louise Dayton.
      In honor of Judy’s wishes, no formal services will be held. Judy requested that in her memory, she would like to fund one year of nursing school for a UW-Madison Nursing Student. So, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the School of Nursing Scholarship Fund in memory of Judy Porter. Checks should be made payable to the UW Foundation and sent to: UW School of Nursing: c/o Norah Bushman; 701 Highland Avenue, Madison, WI 53705.

Arthur C. Wold

Arthur Charles Wold, 81, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away Sunday night, December 9, 2018 at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay with his family at his side.

     He was born July 9, 1937 in Chicago, IL, the son of Arthur Charles Wold II and Helen Eleanor (Przybyla) Wold. Arthur attended Foreman High School in Chicago and then enlisted to serve his country with United States Air Force in March of 1955. He was primarily stationed out of Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Oscoda, MI. Arthur was medically retired from service in June of 1958. He married Penelope Harriet Holda on October 4, 1958 at St. Stanislaus Bishop and Martyr Catholic Church in Chicago.

     Arthur worked at various places throughout his life – initially as a mail guard with U.S. Railroad Postal Service, but his primary employment was with the United States Federal Aviation Administration as an environmental technician at the Chicago Air Traffic Control Center in Aurora. He worked hard to support his family throughout his life, all while living with (chronic) cluster migraines. Arthur was finally able to relax a little (physically) during retirement.

     He and Penelope moved to Door County, WI in 2010 and made their home in Sturgeon Bay. Arthur had a passion for art, especially oil painting. He enjoyed painting portraits of family, abstracts, and still life. Arthur and Penelope took lessons and passed their Coast Guard boating safety course to spend time sailing on the lake on a sailboat he purchased.

     His memory will live on in the hearts of his wife, Penelope of Sturgeon Bay, with whom he shared over 60 years of marriage; three sons and one daughter, Michael Wold of Sturgeon Bay, Danielle Wold of St. Charles, IL, Eric Wold of Tampa, FL, and Jason Wold of West Chicago, IL; five grandchildren, Daniel and Jeremy Roberg, Nicole Wilkerson, Catara Roach, and Samuel Wold; five great-grandchildren, Levi, Wyatt, and Margot, Carter, and Lanie Penelope; sister, Rosemarie Kling of Merrilan, WI; and brother-in-law, MacArthur (Donna) Holda of Houston TX.

     “Our family would like to thank the staff of Door County Medical Center and St. Vincent Hospital for the excellent care given to Arthur.”

Calliroye Jymette Bonnivier

   Calliroye Jymette Bonnivier, 91, Sturgeon Bay, died peacefully in the comfort of her home, Tuesday morning, December 4, 2018, with her husband, Herbert, at her side.

     She was born November 14, 1927, in Chicago, IL, the daughter of James Gus Kallas, Sr. and Lillian C. (Pulaski) Kallas. Calliroye “Cal” graduated from Kelvyn Park High School on the northwest side of Chicago in 1945. She was united in marriage to LeRoy Patrick Bonnivier, whom she had known since high school, on August 2, 1947, in Chicago. Cal raised her family and went on to study art education and earn her Bachelor of Arts degree from Northeastern Illinois University after her children were grown. She was an established artist whose work was featured in galleries in the Chicagoland area, prominent collections including Oprah Winfrey’s, and later throughout galleries in Door County, WI. Cal and LeRoy shared nearly 44 years of marriage together. LeRoy passed away January 9, 1990. She married a long-time family friend, Herbert Henry Klein, on July 12, 1992. Cal and Herb moved to Door County, WI later that year and have resided there ever since.

     She attended St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Des Plaines, IL after marrying LeRoy and later attended Hope United Church of Christ while living in Sturgeon Bay. Calliroye was a former member of the Des Plaines Art League and a member of the Door County Art League, and in 2013, she received the Master Artist award through the Door County Art League. The words most often used when describing Cal’s work are “soft, sensitive and lovely in color.” Impressionistic in expression…an emotion, a fleeting glance, or nuance of color can best explain her paintings. She felt no need to “say it all” and would rather the viewers bring something of themselves to her work. She wholeheartedly embraced the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we will find it not.” She agreed with Renoir that the world is filled with enough disagreeable things without an artist contriving still more of them.

     Though she studied art for years in and out of school, most of her techniques are innovative and self-taught. She continued teaching her grandson, Colton, a rapidly emerging artist, in her final days. Cal was also a member of P.E.O., a North American women’s organization.

     She will be remembered for being a generous, kind, and loving person who had the ability to see the beauty in people, in art and in nature all around her. Cal definitely emulated beauty from the inside out.

     Cal’s love will live on in the hearts of her husband, Herbert Klein of Sturgeon Bay, with whom she shared over 26 years of marriage; Cal’s three sons and two daughters, Marc (Beth) Bonnivier of Palatine, IL, Guy Bonnivier of Bellevue, ID, Bernadette (R. Michael Meyer III) of Sequim, WA, Brad (Janice) Bonnivier of Weaubleau, MO, and Jymette (Randy) Seager of West Chicago, IL; Cal’s eleven grandchildren, Brett, Matthew, and Bart Bonnivier, Dr. R. Michael (Danielle) Meyer IV and Jymette (Bryant) Watrous, Callie (James) Fenby and Luke (Christine) Bonnivier, Ryan (Jenna), Colton (Ruthie), and Ty Seager; Cal’s nine great-grandchildren, Nolan, Emmett, and Asher, Gabe, Ava, and Olivia, Vivian and Royce, and Clayton; Herbert’s four daughters and three sons, Donna Murphy, Liz (Robert) Klein , Peggy (Jim) Brodeur, Jack Klein, Carrie (Bill) Morewinkle, David Klein, and Eddie Klein; Herbert’s daughter-in-law, Buffy Klein; Herbert’s grandchildren, Brita and Kate, Jesse and Brendan, Chandra, Brian, Tim, and Maureen, and Halley; Herbert’s great-grandchildren, Morgan, Charisse, Sienna, Trey, and Jimmy; Cal’s two brothers, Dr. James (Darlean) Kallas, Jr. of Thousand Oaks, CA and Elwood (Betty Lou) Kallas of Maryville, TN; Cal’s sister-in-law, Bernadette Kallas of Brussels, Belgium; other relatives, and friends.

     Cal was preceded in death by Cal’s parents; Cal’s first husband, LeRoy Bonnivier; Cal’s grandson, Luke Bonnivier; Herbert’s son, Herb Klein; Herbert’s grandson, Colin Murphy, and Cal’s brother, Dr. Gerald Kallas.

     Her family will have a celebration of her life in January of 2019 in Illinois.

     Memorials may be given in Calliroye’s honor to Feed My People or Door County Land Trust.

     “Our family would like to express a heartfelt thanks to the staff Unity Hospice for the compassionate care given to our mom. They truly became an extension of our family in recent months.”

     Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay is assisting the family. Expressions of sympathy, memories, and photos of Cal may be shared with her family through her tribute page at www.huehnsfuneralhome.com.

     As Cal would say, “Until next time.”
