Doris Mae Neumeyer, age 85, of Brillion, was called to join her parents, brother, and four infant brothers and sisters on July 30, 2013 at St. Paul Home in Kaukauna.
The Guest Book is expired.
Doris Mae was born on August 30, 1927 in Manitowoc, daughter of the late Arthur J. and Clara (Schwaller) Neumeyer. Doris Mae worked her entire life as a secretary, the last two jobs being for the University of Wisconsin System. She worked 13 years in Green Bay and 10 years in Oshkosh before retiring in 1990. Her greatest gift was that of being the Principal Secretary at the University of Minnesota Band Office for 12 years. This included many concert and band trips: a concert in Carnegie Hall in New York; two Rose Bowl trips with marching band shows; and although she did not go with the band on a concert band tour in the former USSR, she did attend the concert at the White House when the band returned home in 1969. Those 12 years in the Minnesota Band Office were the happiest in her life. She came home in 1972 to care for her parents.
Doris Mae is survived by her adopted son from Mexico, Anthony J. Neumeyer and his daughter, Zoe; niece: Catherine (Jay) Canales and their children: Alyssa and Joshua; niece: Laura Woods and her children: Dustin and Stephen Russell; other relatives, and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother Arthur Delbert Neumeyer and four infant brothers and sisters.
Funeral Mass will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, August 5, 2013 at Holy Family Catholic Church in Brillion. Officiating at the Mass of Christian Burial will be the Rev. Timothy Brandt, with burial to follow in Holy Family Cemetery.
