Upon his release, he embarked upon a lifetime of successful career ventures, including advancing early computer technology in the banking sector, mortgage banking, home building, and as a Regional Manager for Duo-Fast Corporation from which he retired. After retirement Tom brought smiles to many young girls' faces through his work as a Doll Doctor for the American Girl brand of dolls.

He will be watching over all of us, and he taught us much and he taught us well, so we know he would want us to be good to others, strive for success, lead a life of faith, and keep hope alive. And lastly, we are comforted knowing that if we need him, he will call us.

Biersteker, Elizabeth  
Biersteker, Elizabeth "Betty" (Beno) Elizabeth "Betty" (Beno) Biersteker died peacefully early Thursday morning, January 22, 2015, at Bellin Hospital. Her children, most of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were able to be with her and share their love one final time and say good-bye as she began her journey home to the Lord. Despite the effects of a stroke 5 years ago and a long battle with advanced COPD, she enjoyed family and friends up until the end, retaining her sense of humor. For the last year she had resided at Artisan Senior Living Center in De Pere where the family was appreciative for the care she was given. A special "thank you" goes to Dr. Dan Koster our wonderful family physician and close friend. Betty was born August 18, 1931, the daughter of Norris and Lorraine (Doyen) Beno. She married Lloyd Biersteker in Green Bay in October of 1950, and they had three children, Diane, Sue and David (Also known as "Joey"). Lloyd died far too young in 1987, but Betty dusted herself off and went on to enjoy many years of independence after his death. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd, her only son, David "Joey", parents, Lorraine & Norris Beno, and her brother, Ron Beno. Survivors include Betty's two daughters, Diane Biersteker (Tom Erler) of Little Suamico, and Sue (Jerry) Mattice of rural Wautoma. Grandchildren include: Ben (Crystal) Erler, Nick (Alli) Erler, Anne (Ryan) Wettstein, Ken (Emily) Mattice, Angie (Morgan) Menezes. Great-grandchildren include: Tommy, Ryan and Olivia Erler and Marissa Menezes. Betty is also survived by her nieces, nephews, and many special lifelong friends. Betty enjoyed her life fully and was a good friend to many. She liked bowling, bingo, bridge, playing cards, an occasional cocktail and her Wednesday afternoon gathering with her lady friends. A special treat each year was the annual family vacation to Lake Noquebay with extended family and friends a tradition carried on for 45 years. Betty was known by family and friends as a very fun lady who loved life. She was always the "PARTY Grandma"….ice cream & popcorn for breakfast with the grandkids was not unusual. Friends and family are invited to CELEBRATE her LIFE with us from 10:30am until 11:45am on Saturday, January 24, 2015, at St. Jude Catholic Church, 1420 Division St., Green Bay.

Blahnik, Marcella  
Blahnik, Marcella A. Marcella A. Blahnik, 90, died January 23, 2015. Born February 20, 1924 to Dan and Rose Johnson, Marcella "Marcy" grew up in Duval, Wisconsin. During the Depression, her family owned a successful tavern, ballroom and trucking company which did not escape the attention of Baby Face Nelson. One night, the Nelson gang broke in and shot up the tavern sending Marcy and her family scurrying under their beds amidst a hail of bullets. During WWII, Marcy worked as a "Rosie the Riveter" building boats in Sturgeon Bay. While cutting metal, a glowing piece of metal became lodged inside Marcy's blouse and began searing her skin. Marcy's line mates immediately ripped off her blouse and yanked off the sizzling steel. Marcy loved sharing these stories. After the war, Marcy met and married Clarence W. Blahnik, a former cryptographer for Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Marcy and Clarence, who married on October 15, 1947, owned and operated a general store and gas station in Walhain, Wisconsin, where Marcy also owned a beauty shop. After selling their businesses in 1969, they moved to Green Bay, Wisconsin. For 55 years until Clarence's death in 2003, Marcy and Clarence did everything together. They loved nature and the outdoors including foraging for mushrooms, wild asparagus, and nuts. They gardened, fished, danced, played cards, and entertained family and friends. Marcy's children always came first. The constants in Marcy's life were family, church and the Packers. Marcy is survived by her children, Rebecca (James) Naugler, La Crosse and son, John G. (Celia) Blahnik, Philadelphia, PA and one grandchild, John C. Blahnik, New Haven, CT; and two brothers Roy Johnson, Green Bay and Lloyd Johnson, The Villages, Florida. Marcy is preceded in death by an infant daughter, Mary; one daughter, Barbara; husband, Clarence W. Blahnik; her parents; and three sisters and one brother. Visitation Saturday at Saints Peter and Paul Church, 710 N. Baird St., from 12:30 p.m. until the time of the funeral. Mass of Christian Burial 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the church with the Rev. Tony Cirignani, OFM officiating. Malcore (East) Funeral Home is assisting the family, 432-5579. Entombment at Allouez Chapel Mausoleum. In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, donations are requested to be made to the Blahnik-Naugler Help Fund within the Women's Fund at the LaCrosse Community Foundation. The fund was established in 2003 to provide financial support for projects which support health, safety, and self-sufficiency, as well as enrichment opportunities for girls and women. Donations can be made at 401 Main St., Ste. 205 La Crosse, WI 54601, or lacrosscommfound@centurytel.net.

Boehler, Barbara  
Boehler, Barbara Barbara Bates Boehler, 85, Green Bay, died peacefully January 18, 2015, at St. Vincent Hospital, following a recent diagnosis of brain cancer. She was born in Lansing, Michigan, on December 3, 1929, the daughter of the late Thomas F. and Marie D. (Rollenhagen) Bates. Barb attended Michigan Avenue and Verlinden Grade Schools, West Junior High, and Sexton High School while living in Lansing. After graduation, she attended Michigan State College, now MSU, and though she never finished her bachelor's degree, she continued to pursue her education throughout her life. She took classes at Eastern Michigan University and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and continued to pursue her intellectual interests through Learning in Retirement and a never-ending love of reading. On June 17, 1950, Barb was fortunate enough to be married to her true love, Paul Hamilton Boehler, also of Lansing, Michigan, and in 2013, they celebrated their 63rd anniversary together. Paul preceded her in death April 29, 2014. Throughout their life together, Barb and Paul shared their passions for music and the arts, nature and the environment, learning and knowledge, as well as for each other. Together, they attended countless concerts and operas, and they traveled extensively in retirement. But perhaps their greatest joy was spending summers with friends and family at their cabin. Barb worked as a preschool teacher in Manchester, Michigan, at the Hallmark Store in Green Bay, and most recently, for the UW Extension. After retirement, she was an active volunteer at the Weidner Center, the League of Women Voters, St. Vincent Hospital, and the Green Bay Botanical Gardens, where she served as a board member for 16 years and then as the first volunteer coordinator. She was a loyal blood donor with the American Red Cross and a sustaining member of Wisconsin Public Radio, whose classical music joyfully filled her home. Barb was a former member of Preble Presbyterian Church and a current member of First United Presbyterian Church. Along with being an active member of those two churches, Barb served on numerous committees for the local Presbytery, and she served as moderator for the Synod of Lakes and Prairies. Survivors include three children, Carol Ellen (Paul) Wagner, Valders; Kristen Marie (Andrew Muir) Boehler, Las Vegas, Nevada; Karl E. (Crystal Mueller) Boehler, Oshkosh; two grandchildren, Matthew (Sumiyo) Wagner, Madison; Aria Elizabeth Boehler, Oshkosh; six nephews, Patrick (Sally) Bates, Joseph (Marie) Bates, Matthew (Becky) Bates, Thomas (Marina) Bates, David (Sue) Wenstrom and Paul (Jan) Wenstrom; four nieces, Jane (Kevin) Dyment, Katie (Cole) Johnson, Sue (Bill) Wheeler and Christie (Bill) Miller Servais. One niece, Claire Evans, preceded Barbara in death. Friends and family will gather from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday at First United Presbyterian Church, 605 N. Webster Ave., De Pere. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at the church, with a reception to follow at the church, in celebration of Barb's life. Proko-Wall Funeral Home is assisting the family. To send on-line condolences visit www.prokowall.com . Memorial funds have been established for the Green Bay Botanical Gardens and for the American Red Cross.
