Theodore "Ted" Hoeppner, 94, longtime resident of Ephraim, passed away into the arms of his Lord and Savior on November 30, 2013, at the Care Center of the Scandia Village Good Samaritan in Sister Bay.
He was the youngest of eight children born to Charles and Augusta Hoeppner, of Maplewood, Wisconsin, on March 4, 1919. He was preceded in death by his wife, Jeanette Eatough (1994). He is survived by his daughters, Ann Koy (husband, David), of Wausau; and Sherry Donnino, of Madison; two grandchildren, Ted and Andrew Hahn, and four great-grandchildren, James, Luke, Julia and Mathias.
Ted's life encompassed many accomplishments, including having taught school of all ages throughout Door County, enlisting in the Air Force in 1942 (Pacific Islands and New Guinea throughout WWII), and owning and operating the Hotel Ephraim in Ephraim for several years before managing the Ephraim Condominiums on that same property. He served as Village Clerk in Ephraim for many years, was active in the Sister Bay Lions Club, the Boy Scouts, and Door County Planning Commission. He was a lifelong member of the Moravian Church in Ephraim and served as Choir Director for the church for 35 years. He was known in the county as a community leader, a gentleman, and was a well- loved man with a wonderful sense of humor and integrity. He will be greatly missed by all whose lives he touched.
A "Celebration of Ted's Life" will be held at the Ephraim Moravian Church on Saturday, June 28, at 10:30 a.m., followed by a luncheon at the church. A special thank you to all of the wonderful care-givers at the Scandia Village for the exemplary care and support given to Ted and his family throughout his time spent there.
Memorials in Ted's name may be given to the Ephraim Foundation, or to the Scandia Village Good Samaritan Capital Fund.
