Cournoyer, Kent Allen  
Cournoyer, Kent Allen Kent Allen Cournoyer, age 62, of Appleton, passed away peacefully at his home on August 28, 2015 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Kent was born in Milwaukee on August 23, 1953 to the late Louis and Adele (Colavecchi) Cournoyer. Kent attended Xavier High School where he competed on the football team. He was an accomplished trumpet player as well. He went on to study accounting at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, where he earned accreditation as a Certified Public Accountant. On October 8, 1988, he was united in marriage to Kristi (Ott) Cournoyer at Zion United Methodist Church in Forest Junction, WI. The couple has enjoyed 27 blessed and never dull years together. Kent was a longtime employee as a manufacturing operations controller of Marion Body Works in Marion, Krueger International in Green Bay, and most recently, ConAgra Foods in Ripon. He was a member of the prestigious professional associations AICPA, WICPA, and IMA. Kent was an unusually dedicated father, husband, brother, son, cousin, uncle, grandfather and friend. First of the five siblings, Kent was the exalted big brother. Ever the procreator, he was father to two sets of twins. Kent was one of the most avid hunting and fishing partners who ever lived. His sense of humor was big and ever-present no matter the situation or company. If you were fortunate to accompany him on one of his epic trips to Canada, Wyoming, Montana or Colorado or to his beloved land in Clark County, Wisconsin to hunt or fish, count yourself lucky. And if you are reading this, you probably enjoyed the fruits of his skills with a shore lunch or some wonderful venison products. The land in Clark County was Kent's happy place. His stamp is all over the cabin, land, hunting blinds, bird feeders, ATV's, and the over 50,000 trees planted by him and his many family members. He often mentioned how he saw God in nature, there on 'his land', especially. His other loves of note in addition to his children and grandchildren included rescue dogs, preparing and enjoying large, loud Italian-inspired family feasts, and especially the love of his life, Kristi. Kent is survived by his loving wife Kristi Cournoyer, of Appleton; 6 children: Kenneth (Heather) Cournoyer, Chippewa Falls, Kristopher Cournoyer, Seattle, WA, Keith Cournoyer, Kathleen (Joshua) Martens, Brent Cournoyer, and Alyssa Cournoyer, of Appleton; 3 sisters: Lisa (Bob) Gibson, Appleton, Rene (Rob) Cournoyer-Kokka, Larkspur, CA, and Nanette (Chris-Chapek) Cournoyer, Novato, CA; brother: Kurt (Chris) Cournoyer, LeClaire, IA; brother-in-laws: Norman (Nancy) Ott, David Ott, Scott (Annie) Ott, and Joel (Betty) Ott of Brillion; sister-in laws: Julie (Jerome) Bastian, Kaye (William) Wynen, and Mary (Tom) Brouillard of Brillion; special Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Jim, Wausau, WI; mother-in-law Lucille Ott; and 5 grandchildren. Kent was preceded in death by his parents Louis and Adele Cournoyer, grandparents Stella and Bud Eggers, infant brother Louis Cournoyer Jr., father-in-law Donald Ott, and beloved German Shorthair, Gunner. A funeral service will take place at 11:30 am on Wednesday, September 2, at Zion United Methodist Church, N8893 Church St., Forest Junction, with Pastor Rick Andrus officiating. A luncheon will follow. Friends may visit at Brettschneider-Trettin-Nickel Funeral Chapel, (606 N. Oneida St,. Appleton) on Tuesday, September 1, from 4 to 7 pm and directly at the church on Wednesday, September 2, from 9AM until the time of service.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you to ThedaCare at Home Hospice for their compassionate and never-ending care for Kent.

Schomisch, Joseph Edward  
Schomisch, Joseph Edward Joseph Edward Schomisch, 81, of Chilton, passed away on Sunday, August 23, 2015 at Calumet Medical Center. Joseph was born February 13, 1934, in Stockbridge, son of the late Jerome & Leona (Mueller) Schomisch. He served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War as a Photo Lab Specialist. On January 2, 1971, Joseph and Mary Grenzer were united in marriage at St. Mary's Church in Chilton. He was employed as a foreman for Chilton Metal Products for over 35 years until his retirement in 1996 and then began working for Walmart. Joseph was involved with the VFW Post 3153 Chilton, American Legion Post #125 Chilton, and the longest serving member of the Jolly Fishermen's Club in Quinney (since 1969). Lake Winnebago was his home away from home. Joe always enjoyed sharing his love of fishing with anyone in the community-- Fish feared him, women loved him. If you ever needed to know the lake conditions, Joe could give you the forecast so you wouldn't waste a trip. Joe, along with his brothers, was an exceptionally talented and gifted athlete lettering in several sports throughout high school. It didn't stop there; Joe continued to be an active golfer and was known to win a championship or two at Hickory Hills Country Club. Joseph was certainly a Jack of all Trades who enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, bowling, going to (and hosting) rummage sales, and always appreciated playing a good round of cards. In May of 2015, Joe had the privilege to visit Washington D.C. on the Old Glory Honor Flight where he was showered with gratitude and recognition from folks of all ages. All who knew him will remember him for his happy go lucky personality and his great talent of whistling just about anything-if you could hear whistling, you knew Joe was near. Survivors include his wife, Mary (Grenzer) Schomisch of Chilton; three children, Shelly (Bill) Tyson and their children, Megan, Dylan, and Gavin, all of Chilton, Edward Joseph Schomisch of Appleton, and Darcy Schomisch of Appleton; sister, Jeanne Kuhn of Brookfield; brothers-in-law/sisters-in-law, Jan Schomisch, Barb (Lon) Schroeder, Joanie (Mike) Slominski, Marguerite (Kurt) Myers, Charles (Marleen) Grenzer, Kenneth Grenzer, and Bob Suttner; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. In addition to his parents, Joseph was preceded in death by two brothers, Jerome Schomisch and John Schomisch; one brother-in-law, Dan Kuhn, and three sisters-in-law, Laurie (Nachtwey-Schomisch) Duffield, Carol (Grenzer) Suttner and Betty Grenzer. A Celebration of Joe's life will be held from 4:00pm - 7:00pm on Wednesday, September 2, 2015, at Hickory Hills Country Club (W3095 Hickory Hills Road) in Chilton. The family will hold a tribute service at 6:00pm and a toast to Joe at 6:30pm. Sure, sure gang…we'll meet you at the "big" lake. A memorial fund has been established in the name of Joseph E. Schomisch. Online Condolences wietingfuneralhome.com
