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,.

Demand, Ruth L.  
Demand, Ruth L. Ruth Lorraine (Hough) Demand, Age 91 of Neenah, died peacefully on Wednesday, August 26th after a very blessed life. She was born on October 20, 1923 in Monroe, North Carolina. Ruth graduated from Monroe High School and went on to attend Queen's College in Charlotte, North Carolina. In her sophomore year, WWII began and during summer vacation, Ruth decided to hone her secretarial skills by taking the position of Secretary to the Commanding Officer at Camp Sutton near her Monroe home. A young handsome Army officer named Loren John Demand was smitten at first sight when he saw this beautiful young woman and as the war ended, a great romance began! Ruth and Loren were married in Charlotte on September 8, 1945 and then they returned to Loren's hometown of Neenah to begin their long and happy life together until his death on November 11 (Veteran's Day) in 2008. Ruth worked for Kimberly Clark until the birth of their only child, Melanie, in 1960. Her love of young people then steered her toward a very fulfilling career at Neenah High School (Armstrong campus) from 1971-1979 where she worked as a Multi-Department Aid and Structured Study Hall Supervisor. She mentored and counseled many of the students who cherished her friendship and appreciated her sage advice. Ruth was also very generous with her time volunteering at Theda Clark Hospital, at the YMCA, fund-raising for the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association. She coordinated the annual Girl Scout cookie sale for several years when her daughter was involved in scouting. Ruth loved all wildlife, especially wolves and birds of prey. She collected many figurines and pictures of these beautiful creatures and displayed them proudly in her home. She enjoyed flower gardening, with white daisies being her favorite. Long rides in the country brought her great joy where she always felt close to and could embrace all that nature had to offer. Her favorite travel destinations were Maui, San Antonio, and Fort Myers Beach, FL. Ruth is survived by her loving daughter, Melanie (Akstulewicz), son-in-law Larry Akstulewicz, close family friends Gary and Wendy Gelhar, along with many other wonderful people who have been such a special part of her life. A private burial and graveside service will be held at Oak Hill Cemetery to be lead by clergy from Immanuel United Church of Christ. A Celebration of Life is being planned for a later date.

Also, thank you Heartland Hospice for all of your care and support, especially Chaplain Roy Rogers. Your prayers and words of comfort on her last day meant so much! Bless you to all of mom's caregivers who allowed her to stay in her own home with her beloved cat Sushi and Golden Retriever Shadow for as long as possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are! Mom: You were one of the kindest, sweetest and most beautiful women I will ever know. Although our last few years together as mother and daughter were filled with many ups and downs, I can now look back with the fondest of memories on a life well-lived. You made many friends throughout your very long life by being a good listener, having an open mind and always being willing to help those in need. I hope to be remembered in the very same way when my time on this earth is over. With admiration and much love, Melanie. Ruthie: As your new journey begins and you are reunited with Loren, I know you both are happy once again watching the Packers together and remembering the good old days. Your smile and energy will always be with us. Rest in peace and we will not forget you! We will always remember "the good old days" we had with you. Love you and miss you, Larry.
