He spent most of his childhood and teen years living and working at his grandma and grandpa Conradt’s farm. In 1948 Myron joined the U.S. Army and served for 21 years. He was a Korean War Veteran and retired as a Sargent First Class. In 1954 while stationed in National Park NJ he met and married Helen D. Maier. They went on to have a family and made several moves that the military life required of him. They also lived in such places as Germany, Michigan and Texas. After retiring from the Army in 1969, the family made one more move to Wisconsin where Myron was born and raised.
He was a member of the Seymour American Legion and the Black Creek Community Bible Church.

While playing “Old McDonald”, he was also employed at Appleton Papers until 1990. He enjoyed many years traveling with his wife, babysitting his grandchildren, and helping his neighbors and son-in-law on their farms.

Patricia was born on September 18, 1935 in Mason, Illinois to her parents, Martin and Lula Mae (Logan) Senior. She attended Mason and Effingham schools where she was active in sports and cheerleading. More than anything, she loved the opportunity to learn.

Patricia played bass in her family’s gospel group, Lula Mae and the Belles. She was able to travel with her family sharing the Gospel and using her gifts for ministry.
On April 6, 1985, she married Reverend Lee Prather. For 30 years, she worked alongside Lee in his ministry. She had the most generous heart and spirit. She embodied everything that was good in the world. She had many “furry” children that brought her the greatest joy. Aunt Patty was also a second mom to her many nieces and nephews. She loved only the way an aunt could. She was always the cool aunt with the fast cars, the best sleepover parties, and was up for anything even teaching cartwheels and handstands in her 50’s! She loved the Chicago Cubs and remained the eternal optimist waiting for “next year”.
When Lee passed away in August of 2015, Patricia moved to Seymour to be with her sister and family. During her short time in Seymour, such great hospitality was shown to her. She would often remark on what a blessing it was to live in a small town that cares even for a stranger. Thank you to the employees at Dairy Queen for always being nice to her as her daily visits for her Butterfinger blizzard was a bright spot in the day. Having her hair fixed was always important and she found wonderful stylists at Hair Graphics. Thank you Colleen and Debbie for making her feel at home and keeping her beautiful. Thank you to Dr. Kari Sheldon in Black Creek for being an amazing and caring doctor. Your care for our family was more than could have ever been expected. Thank you to Joel and Kurt for understanding how important Patricia was to us and doing everything you could to make her transition home be as dignified as possible. Thank you to Whitney for being a respectful and loving caregiver. Thank you for helping us keep her home. Finally, thank you to Immanuel Lutheran of Cicero for being a second church family to Patricia. She loved attending church and marveled at how special and friendly the congregation was. She looked forward to hearing and seeing the ministry of VBS.

Dorothy Fellion

Dorothy Fellion

Dorothy Fellion

Dorothy Fellion, age 89, of Seymour and formerly of Niagara, Wis. passed away peacefully Wednesday, January 27, 2016 in Seymour.
She was born in Chicago, IL, on September 27, 1926, the middle child and only daughter of the late Clarence and Gertrude (Siler) Dixon. After surviving a scary, months-long bout of pneumonia as a young girl, she had an active, outgoing, zest-for-life that highlighted the sparkling personality for which she will always be fondly remembered.
Following graduation from Kelly High School in Chicago, Dorothy began working for the Navy and became a military wife and mother. Military orders led the family to NM, CA, NC, GA, and IL. Upon completion of service, Niagara, WI became home. There, she worked for the Village of Niagara, and later began her long-term career as the friendliest banker in WI & Upper MI. She was a volunteer at the VA Hospital; and was active with Niagara’s Mary Hill Manor, where she sponsored a room in honor of her beloved Daddy after his passing.
She enjoyed 40 years of marriage to her true love, Robert Fellion, until he preceded her in death on February 25, 2010. They shared a love of the north woods of Wisconsin. Scores of family and friends have decades of cherished memories of Dorothy & Bob’s warm, “up-north” hospitality – snowmobile trips through the woods to the cabin, bountiful strawberry harvests, hot summer day visits to Timms Lake, and the legendary winter weekends on their private sledding hill (complete with hot cocoa, sleeping bags, and stunning northern lights!)
Before health issues kept them closer to home, Dor & Bob enjoyed wintering in Lady Lake, FL. Championed by Dorothy’s delightful, outgoing personality, they made many dear friends at their winter home, and came back every spring with stories of hilarious card party shenanigans and zany St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
Dorothy was a loving Christian and for many years participated as a gifted member of her church choir in Niagara; in Seymour, she was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. She was also a 55-year member of the American Legion Auxiliary.
Dorothy is survived and celebrated by her daughters: Lynn Cartier, Seymour; Linda (Joe) Tripp, Pembine; four granddaughters: Donna (Hank), Kirsten (Cavin), Megan (Jana), and Marcie (Kimani); 11 great-grandchildren: Tayler, Lonee, Helena, Pace, Joelle, Evangelynn, Margeaux, Solomon, Malin, Harlow, and JJ; 2 great-great-grandchildren: Dylan and Rafael; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents and 2 brothers, she was preceded in death by her son-in-law, Joel Cartier.
Friends and relatives are invited to join the family for a memorial service to celebrate Dorothy’s very special life at Muehl-Boettcher Funeral Home, Seymour, on Saturday, February 13, 2016 from 9:00 until the service at 11:00 am with Fr.

Paul B. Kaczrowski

Paul Kaczrowski

Paul Kaczrowski

Paul Kaczrowski, 75, of Ashwaubenon passed away on Friday, January 8, 2016. He was born on August 20, 1940 to the late Paul and Helen (Pasowicz) Kaczrowski.
He graduated from Seymour High School and was proud to be nominated as President at his last class reunion. Paul served proudly in the U.S. Army, was in Germany and to this day remembered his dog tag number.
He is survived by his son, Todd (Tami), their children: Shawn, Wyatt, Walker, and Haylee (Kyle) Brunette; daughter, Paula (Al) VanderMeulen, their children: Ashley and Codie; great-grandchildren; Serenity, Hunter, and Kaiden. Also, step-children, step-grandchildren, his many nephews, nieces, great-nephews, great-nieces and cousins. His loving brothers and sisters: Dolores Leisgang, Helen (LaVern) Leisgang, Eugene (Joanne), George, Darlene Werner, and Christine (Keith) Mueller. Further survived by his ex-wife and friend, Linda; his loyal office staff, especially Debbie Seefeldt and Carissa Lambert.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Helen; his son, Scott; his brother-in-law, Ollie Leisgang; and niece, Dana Werner.
Paul came from humble beginnings growing up in the Seymour area on a farm and moved to the City of Seymour when he was 12. He always had a great Love of family. Paul said the most important person in his life was his Mother for whom he had a tremendous Love and respect. As a kid he would save his lunch money to buy things for her. He even had a tattoo on his arm with a heart and “MOM” on it. It was his goal in life to make her proud of him.
He was always ambitious and as a teen he worked at the bowling alley when pins were stood up by hand, setting 90,000 in one year. He also worked at Hansen’s Drug Store and Seymour Canning Factory. Paul always had a great Love of family and was very generous. If you ever did anything for Paul he was sure to reward you many times over to show he appreciated you. Some of which was a Cadillac and Mercedes. He was generous to waitresses, had a warm heart for the homeless, and those who were in need.
Paul was a successful entrepreneur and well known businessman in Green Bay, the Fox Valley, the Milwaukee area, and throughout the state. He started in Seymour with a gas station, a tavern (Hustle Inn, still in the family), and Paul’s Auto Sales. Paul also held a huge rock concert and ran snowmobile races. He was always an amazing promoter.
Paul was an avid racing fan. He put Seymour on the map and became known as “The Czar” when he started Paul’s Speedway. He also owned his own race car. He offered huge pay-outs and brought in out of the area drivers like Dick Trickle and Tom Stueding to bring in the fans along with the top local renowned drivers. Much of the story is featured in Joe Verdegan’s new book “Life in the Past Lane “ where Paul is featured and some of his racing story is told. Paul proceeded to also run tracks in De Pere, Plover, and Marshfield. At some of the tracks Paul was not only the promoter but was also the announcer. When he was in the booth you knew it and could hear him over the race cars as his enthusiasm shouted out and it was contagious. Paul said that the time in the racing business was one of the best times of his life and he met many great people as race fans along the way (who he still cherished ‘til today) along with Dick Trickle and Dale Earnhardt. He also served as President of the National Dirt Track Assoc.
Paul moved on to Green Bay where he operated numerous bars including Dallas North, where he held huge outdoor concerts, and brought in entertainers. He also owned restaurants, one of them being the Black Forest Supper Club. He also owned mini-malls and more. Along the way Paul traveled through 49 States. He met many celebrities, movie stars, and Presidents.
Paul found his niche when he got into real estate in 1986 and became active in the Wisconsin State Exchangers out of Milwaukee, where he served as a three-time President, and was the guest speaker at the Realtors State Convention. What started as a one-man real estate office in l987 specializing in home sales has now become Prestige Realty, Inc. taking on apartment ownership, management, commercial sales, and development. Paul was a brilliant man and a visionary. Most of the time he was way ahead of the times.
With Paul’s office located on Lombardi Avenue he envisioned his dream for the east end of Lombardi. Beginning with the purchase and demolition of GB Structural Steel in 2000 Paul sought to develop the 17+acres as well as the 16 acres of land purchased on Tony Canadeo Run. Paul sold land and participated in building the Tundra Lodge. Following came Marty’s Boston Crab, Wendy’s, Perry’s Cherry Diner, the Pizza Hut Wing Street (first in Wisconsin) and Champions (Burkel’s).
His vision for that area also included a first class, 12′ (50 unit Condominium project) and was to be named “Prestige Park Towers”. It would have been the tallest building in Green Bay. That vision did not come to fruition and Paul still to this day Paul felt that if not for the current Mayor the Towers would be standing today.
Paul enjoyed his summers at the cottage, some winter time at his home in Florida, his family gatherings, Nascar races, watching old westerns, collecting Vintage cars and Western Remington statues, polish music, especially Chad Przybylski, with who he had so many fun times. Paul had a great zest for life always looking on the positive side of things. There wasn’t anything he didn’t think he could accomplish and the words “can’t or won’t work” were not in his vocabulary. He had many successes, but also had his share of heartache and some things that didn’t work out. But, he never let that pull him down for long and always managed to bounce back up.
Anyone who knew Paul knows he had a brilliant, fast thinking mind, with a quick wit and great sense of humor. He typically said what came to mind, which sometimes could get him in trouble, but those of us who knew and Loved him were right back at him.
Paul was thankful to “God” for his success. He said he had accomplished what he wanted to and that he lived a good life. Paul knew he always had the Love of his family. Paul greatly missed his son, Scott, who passed away 31 years ago and it was a pain and heartache that never went away. Paul died on Scott’s birthday.

John Arthur Webster, 59, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, December 19, 2015. He was born on January 25, 1956, to Arthur “Art” and Rita (Schuyler) Webster, the oldest of 11 children. He married the love of his life, Rosalind (Charles), on November 23, 1974, at the Oneida Methodist Church. Some say it was her Firebird that first caught his attention. John graduated from Flandreau Indian School in 1974.
When John was younger, he had a bit of a wild streak. He was known to tear through the reservation with friends in a rez runner with a busted transmission, driving in reverse the whole way with one friend hanging out the window to help navigate. After high school, John spent his career working at Proctor & Gamble, where he enjoyed spending time with his buddies from the mill. After retirement, he was able to spend more time with his family, especially on camping trips to Door County and hunting with his sons and brothers. He loved to cook for family gatherings and to splurge every 4th of July on a fantastic fireworks show. He looked forward to every Sunday when he would pick up his two granddaughters to bring them to church and treat them to the candy store afterward, but only if they behaved in church.
He left behind his wife of 41 years, Rosalind (Charles) Webster; his sons Steve (Becky) Webster and Tyler Webster; his two granddaughters Grace and Mia Webster; his mother Rita (Ron) Doxtater; 10 siblings: Julie (Brian) Denny, Melvin (Lori) Webster, Jean Webster, Janet (Dave) Danforth, Joan Webster, Jackie (Bill) Rice, Karl “Kool Karl” Webster, Judy Webster, Jeff Webster (Jackie), and Bill Webster (Shelly). John also left behind his Godmother, Evelyn Elm, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends, including Mike Doxtator and Frank Gutierrez. Both Proctor & Gamble retirees, Mike and John talked on the phone every morning to exchange the latest gossip around town.
John was predeceased by his father, Arthur “Art” Webster; his paternal grandparents, Arthur and Josephine Webster; his maternal grandparents, Hattie and James Schuyler; his Godfather, Marty Webster; and his nephew Josh Webster.
An active member of the Oneida Methodist Church, John was the cemetery caretaker for many years and will now be laid to rest in the cemetery he cared for.
Friends may call at Muehl-Boettcher Funeral Home, Seymour on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 from 4-8 p.m. with the Oneida Singers at 6:30 p.m. and a prayer service at 7 p.m. Visitation will continue at Oneida United Methodist Church on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. until services at 11 a.m. with Pastor Ann Bullis officiating.

She was born November 1, 1919, daughter of the late Edward and Marie (Semelka) Srotyr. Born and raised in Cicero, IL where as a child she held a paper route that, as the story goes, included the Capone Brothers. Growing up during the Great Depression Marie acquired the values of hard work, determination and the value of a dollar.
On April 21, 1945, she was united in marriage to David A. Giamarino Jr. They were married for 58 years till David’s death in 2003. Marie met David where they both worked at a screw factory in Chicago. A favorite date was fishing on the banks of the Fox River in St. Charles, IL. Marie and David moved to Lisle, IL to start a family. They were active in the Foster Care Program where they cared for 22 foster children before adopting two children of their own; Edward and David III.
Besides her love of children, Marie enjoyed baking, sewing, gardening, crafts and collecting angels of all types. As the kids grew, Marie held several jobs outside the house. She retired from Vaughn Seed Company in 1982 where she was able to bring her love of gardening into her occupation. Marie also was a long time member of the Lisle Fire Departments Women’s Auxiliary.
Marie and David retired to a lake home on Big Devils Lake in Sarona, WI. There Marie enjoyed everything mother-nature offered, especially when her children and grandchildren would visit. Poor health finally forced Marie to move from her lake home in 2012 to Meadow Wood Assisted Living in Seymour to be close to family and finally to Good Shepherd Home.
Marie is survived by her two sons, Edward and his wife Dawn, along with Marie’s two grandchildren Benjamin and Matthew; David and his wife, Vickie; her foster daughter, Dorothy (Dave) Patrick.

A special thanks also to her good neighbors at Big Devils Lake. Especially to Allen, Judy, Bob and Bob Jr. for their ever watchful eye and willingness to lend a helpful hand whenever Marie needed assistance.
One of Marie’s hobbies was writing poems. She leaves us with this:
My Angels
I love my Angels, one and all,
Some are big, and some are small
I know they watch over me, all year long
They really keep me from doing wrong,
They keep me company, day by day,
If I should be at home, or going away,
My Angels and I always keep in touch
That’s why I love them so very much.

Franklin Block

Franklin James Block, age 82, of Gladstone, passed away early Wednesday morning, July 29, 2015, at Bellin Health Care in Green Bay.
Franklin was born October 25, 1932, in Kenosha, WI, the son of Frank C. and Marion (Hepburn) Block. He was raised in Kenosha before moving with his family to Sheboygan, WI, at the age of twelve. Franklin was a 1950 graduate of Central High School in Sheboygan. In 1954, Franklin was drafted into the United States Army where he served until his honorable discharge in 1956. Some time after returning to Sheboygan he enrolled at Lakeland College to complete college work begun before service. On September 5, 1959, Franklin was united in marriage to the former Sharon Druckrey at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Sheboygan. Franklin graduated from Lakeland College in January, 1960, with his Bachelor’s degree in History and English. He taught at Oconto High School in Oconto, WI, for a short period of time before enrolling in Evangelical Theological Seminary in Naperville, IL. In 1963, he graduated with his Divinity Degree.

He then transferred to Seymour, WI where he served as pastor of both the Seymour and Cicero United Methodist Churches for the next thirty-seven years. In 2002, Franklin retired to Gladstone, MI.
Franklin was accomplished pianist and organist, frequently using his talents both in church and community during his lifetime. Since hearing out-of-tune music greatly bothered him, he learned early how to tune pianos – also later tuning the pianos at the churches he served. Franklin enjoyed attending concerts, musicals and theater productions. In addition, he was an all-around handyman, doing minor repairs at his house, the churches he served, and his mother’s house. (He never visited her without bringing his toolbox.) Franklin was an animated storyteller, entertaining all with his embellishments.
