Wolf, Florence & Carlton



Florence C. McCauley Wolf, October 28, 1920 - January 5, 2010

Carlton W. Wolf, January 23, 1921 - March 15, 2012

Together in life for 66 years and now for eternity, the remains of Carl and Florence Wolf, Sheboygan Central High School, Class of 1940, will be interred at Holy Cross Cemetery, Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. Deacon Michael F. Burch, Parish Director at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church, will officiate. Part of The Greatest Generation, Carl campaigned through France, Holland, Poland, Belgium and Germany with the US Army in WWII, while Florence worked in a defense plant and kept their dream alive.

Carl's legacy was his hard work in any job he had. He ended his working career as a supervisor for Conoco Phillips Corporation. His loyal legacy was lived out in his unfailing dedication to Florence. Near the end of his life, more than two years after Florence had passed, he was asked how long he had been married. "I still am," he replied.

Florence's family values were shaped by the loss of her mother at a young age and when her father died while yet a teen, she quickly became both an emancipated minor and a mom to her younger sister. Her necessary strong work ethic carried her into war work and motherhood, a priceless heritage.

Together they rigorously raised two sons, Larry and Jon. They built their family on strong Christian values, making parochial school and Sunday mass a priority.

Although Sheboygan was forever home, their life of 53 years in California flourished with three grandsons, a granddaughter and ten great-grandchildren.
