Vandenberg, Robert  
Rev. Robert H. Vandenberg Father Robert Vandenberg was born on February 4, 1926 in Kimberly, Wisconsin, to Gregory and Marie (Lamers) Vandenberg. He attended Kimberly High School and Marquette University in Milwaukee where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Naval Science and a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Father Vandenberg held a commission in the U.S. Navy Reserves until 1951. From 1952 until 1954, Fr. Vandenberg spent time as a novice with the Jesuit Fathers. Following this, he entered St. Paul Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, to study theology. He was ordained a priest by Bishop Stanislaus V. Bona on May 31, 1958, at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral in Green Bay. Father Vandenberg served as assistant pastor at St. Therese Parish in Appleton in 1958, at St. Peter Church in Oconto from 1967 until 1968, and at St. Patrick Parish in Green Bay from 1968 to 1969. He also served one year as pastor at Immaculate Conception Church in Glenmore. In 1970, Father Vandenberg became pastor of St. Paul Parish in Combined Locks, where he served until his retirement in 2004. Prior to his retirement, he was appointed temporary administrator at Holy Angels Parish in Darboy. Fr. Vandenberg served on the board of directors of the Leo Benevolent Society from 1969 until 2007. For most of those years, Father served as the Treasurer, oversaw the investment portfolio of the funds, and ensured that retirees received their pension benefits. Following his retirement, he assisted many area parishes with weekend masses, and also anointed the sick and held a weekly mass at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Fr. Vandenberg will be remembered by all for his love of fly-fishing, hunting, traveling, playing cards, and his "mandatory" weekly visits to Van Abel's of Hollandtown for the pan-fried pike. In recent years, he came to love and appreciate his Kimberly neighbors, who were all very good to him and looked after his needs. He had a special affection for Dave and Dawn Krajeuwski and their children. Survivors include two sisters: Rose Vanden Heuvel of Kimberly and Mary (Jim) Grist of Madison; and ten nieces and nephews: Mary Jo (Joe) Wendels, Jeff (Kris) Vanden Heuvel, Joan (Jim) Opsteen, Gerg (Gerry) Vanden Heuvel, Phil Vanden Heuvel (Tami), Charles (Terri) Grist, Julie (Paul) Holohan, Dr. Tom (Jean) Grist, Lorelle (Brian) Dalke, and Nancy (Tom) Franchett. Father was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother-in-law: Joe Vanden Heuvel. Reception of the body by the Regional Vicar, Very Reverend Donald Zuleger, will take place at St. Paul Parish, 410 Wallace Street in Combined Locks, on Sunday, February 1, 2015, at 1:00 PM, and will continue until the time of a prayer service which will be held at 4:00 PM. Visitation will resume Monday morning at the church from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM, at which time the Funeral Liturgy, expressing our faith and our hope in the promised glory of the Lord's Resurrection, will take place. Bishop David L. Ricken will be the Celebrant, with Bishop Robert Banks and Bishop Robert Morneau Concelebrating. Reverend Monsignor James Vanden Hogen will be the Homilist. Burial will follow at the parish cemetery, with full military honors. Memories of Fr. Vandenberg and online condolences may be shared at www.wichmannfargo.com .

Prellwitz, Clarence W.  
Prellwitz, Clarence W. Clarence Walter Prellwitz, 90, passed away on Sunday, January 25, 2015, at Syverson Lutheran Home in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Clarence was born in the Township of Little Wolf in Waupaca County on October 11, 1924 to William and Mary (Timm) Prellwitz. He grew up on the family farm in Manawa, Wisconsin. He lived in the very same house where he was born and celebrated 84 Christmases there ... always marveling that was a miracle. In September, 1946 he married Bernice Helen Marie Heidke of New London, Wisconsin where they worked the family farm for 44 years along with their three children. Clarence was baptized, confirmed and was a long-time member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Manawa where he was active as an usher, deacon, sang in the choir and Men's Club, plus participated with many Bible studies. In addition to church activities, Clarence assisted Bernice as a general 4-H leader for 15 years. Each summer for the annual July 4th rodeo float, Clarence helped prepare the foundation of the float wagon often sawing and welding different parts together before it was finished over with decorating. And for the summer 4-H picnic, he cleared a large patch of hay so that a temporary ball field could be created for the friendly competition followed by the watermelon spitting contest! Once in a while there was even a 4-H project loose animal running the bases! In 1990 Clarence and Bernice retired from regular farming, but continued to live in the homestead while still caring for various animals, gardening and doing lawn care. Clarence continually checked on "Bobby's" heifers and the dogs and cats would follow him around seeking treats and lots of pets. In 2009 additional health complications for both created the need to move to Eau Claire closer to family and medical attention. While a resident at Syverson Lutheran Home he was very interested in the music activities and sang with the groups that came in, as well as singing in his room to the CD player. His voice often rang out with hymns of worship or songs from the nifty 50's. Clarence will be missed by his three daughters - Beverly (David) Szprejda, Pembine, Wisconsin, Ellen and Marcia Prellwitz of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and two grandchildren, Jessie and Zachary Szprejda, currently students at UW-Stevens Point. He is further survived by his nieces Hazel (Earl) Jahsman of Appleton, Ardis Peterson of Neenah and Ramona Bahrke of Appleton, along with other great nephews and nieces. He is preceded in death by his wife, Bernice, parents and sisters Ruth (Lloyd) Rewey, Lillian Suehs, Alma (Emil) Bigalke, Clara (George) Zempel, Ann (Herb) Niemuth, Elizabeth Klotzbuecher, Lorraine (Walter) Flater and an infant brother at birth. Celebration of life will take place at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Manawa, Wisconsin with Pastor Vilas Mazemke as officiant on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at 1:00 pm with visitation at the church prior beginning at 12:00 noon. Fellowship will coincide with visitation time in the Fellowship Room of the church. Private family interment will be at the Little Wolf Cemetery immediately following the worship service. In lieu of flowers memorials for Clarence would be welcomed at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 742 Depot St, Manawa, WI 54949, the Syverson Lutheran Home, 816 Porter Avenue, Eau Claire, WI 54701 or Mayo Clinic Hospice, Eau Claire, P O Box 4105, Eau Claire WI 54702. The family would like to thank the staff of the Mayo Clinic Health Systems, Eau Claire, for their professional expertise over the past years in regard to Clarence's health concerns and most recently to the staff of the Syverson Lutheran Home and the Mayo Clinic Hospice team. Also special thanks to the LakeCare Ministries members of Lake Street UMC who visited Clarence while he was a resident at Eau Claire. Clarence will be fondly remembered for his pursuit to be a great farmer in growing really good crops, raising high-test Holsteins for milk production, hard work and being a good neighbor.
