Matsche, Loretta J.  
Matsche, Loretta J. One hundred years ago on June 11, 1914 Loretta the youngest of eleven children, was born in Oshkosh, the daughter of the late Jacob and Anna (Demler) Matsche. Shortly after her birth the family moved to Birnamwood and farmed there for many years. After her father died she returned to Oshkosh, bringing her mother with her, who she cared for until her death. Loretta died peacefully and was called home to to be with our lord on December 16, 2014. Loretta was a faithful lifetime member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Oshkosh. Loretta was employed by the Deltox Rug CO., and the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, where she retired after twenty years of service. She also worked for her brother-in-law, frying the best fish and chicken in town at Harold's Bar. She enjoyed knitting, card playing, gardening and going to the casino. One highlight in her life was her trip to Las Vegas with several of her nieces. She enjoyed shopping and was also a member of her church's dart ball team. She liked to reminisce about her younger days on the farm. One of her favorite stories was how she had to walk to school-cold and all, and on exceptionally cold days her lunch would freeze. Loretta is survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, friends, and was especially close to Marlene Hielsberg, and Don and Harry Boushele. She was preceded in death by two infant siblings, six brothers, John (Mary), twins, Roman (Alma), Joseph (Mary), Frank (Theresa), Edward (Katherine), Jacob (Isabella); four sisters, Mary (Michael) Binder, Anna (Frank) Stiebel, Rose (Harold) Boushele Sr., and Tress (John) Frank. A Memorial Mass for Loretta will be held on Saturday December 20, at 11 a.m. in St Jude the Apostle Catholic Church (Sacred Heart site) with the Rev. William Van De Kreeke officiating. Burial will be in Sacred Heart Cemetery. Family and friends may call at the church on Saturday from 9 a.m. until the hour of services. Loretta's family would like to extend a special "Thank you" to all her care givers for the loving care they gave her. Fiss & Bills-Poklasny fissbillspoklasny.com

Ney, Anne  
Ney, Anne For 64 years, God gave Anne Louise (Ottensmann) Ney the gift of physical life. She received the gift of eternal life by grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. On December 13, 2014, with her family at her side Anne entered the fulfillment of that life as she left this earth to be with her Savior and friend, Jesus, in her heavenly home. We will not lose her, for she will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. She leaves behind her husband, Scott; one son, Daniel (Lori) Ney of Oshkosh; one daughter, Tricia (Charles) Olson of Oshkosh; twin grandchildren, Hannah and Emma Olson; and 3 grandsons, Timothy Olson and Jadon and Nathan Ney of Oshkosh; two brothers, Paul (Deanne) Ottensmann of Appleton, and David (Jodi) Ottensmann of Sheboygan, 7 nephews, 2 nieces and numerous cousins. Her mother (Doris), father (Leroy) and sister (Jeri Rhode) preceded her in death. Anne's life began in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on May 4, 1950, and she graduated cum laude from the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh in December, 1971 with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education. She was a member of Kappa Delta Pi, honorary education sorority and Phi Chi, National Honor Society in Psychology. She taught in Waukesha 1 1/2 years before her marriage to Scott on June 23, 1973. During her 40 plus years as a member of Grace Bible Church, she served on the deacon board and missionary committee, coordinated the nursery, chaired the benevolent committee, taught children's church and Sunday school, directed an Awana club, and organized numerous fundraisers. Anne willingly served others sharing God's love and used her God given talents to help others. She hosted a citywide Mom's in Touch prayer group, served on the Young Life-Oshkosh adult support committee, participated in Concerned Citizens for Excellence in Education, worked on the Pregnancy Lifeline, sat on the Citizen's advisory Council, representing West High School, and facilitated the Fibromyalgia Support group. She would tell you that her greatest achievement was raising and home schooling her two beloved children. Her greatest joy in life was spending time in the Bible with God and spending time with family, especially her children and grandchildren. Because she had a terminal illness, she was blessed to spend precious daily time with her children and grandchildren months before she passed and plan her funeral. The celebration of "Life after life" service will be held in the chapel at Konrad Behlman Funeral Home - Westside, on Saturday, December 20, 2014, at 11:30am with Pastor Paul Turner II officiating. Friends and family may visit from 9:30am to 11:30am. Refreshments will be served during and after visitation. Burial will be at Lakeview Memorial Park, 2786 Algoma Blvd, Oshkosh. We invite you to cherish the memories of her life and celebrate the glories of her new Heavenly home. In lieu of flowers, Anne requested that the family establish memorials in her name to pre-selected parties. The family would like to extend their deep appreciation to the Affinity Ministry Home Care Palliative and Hospice team, Preferred Home Health team, Home Helpers/Direct Link care team, various private caregivers and the Belville & Associates chiropractic team for their compassionate care of Anne. Anne's greatest desire is that all would join her some day in heaven. She wrote... Rom 3:23..all have sinned ( yes, even me!) and come short of the glory of God. Without Christ you are blind and lost (II Cor. 4:3,4), but the good news is, God loves you and Christ died to take the punishment for your sins (I Cor. 15:3,4). The only question is, do you believe He died to pay for your sins, or are you still trying to pay for them in your own way, by doing good works? God says, "to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Rom. 4:5). Why not "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and be saved? Anne's final words are: "To my beloved husband, Scott, who loved me unconditionally, in sickness and health, and to my children, who grew more precious with time, to my grandchildren, who blessed my life with great joy and to my wonderful friends….whatever we were to each other we still are. Speak to me in the same way you always have. Laugh, smile and think of me. I'll be with you in spirit and look forward to our heavenly reunion. Sustained by His Grace, Love, Anne"

Pokrandt, Velda  
Pokrandt, Velda D. Velda D. Pokrandt, age 85, passed away on Monday, December 8, 2014 at her residence with her family by her side. She was born on March 28, 1929 to Albert and Emma (Kuehl) Tesch in the Town of Leon in Waushara County. She married Raymond Pokrandt on September 9, 1950 in Oshkosh, WI. Velda graduated from Berlin High School and then attended two years at Oshkosh Business College. Velda had several different jobs throughout her career. She worked at 1st National Bank, AP Nonweiler Paint in the office, and later at Lakeside Plastics as an office manager. She is survived by her husband, Raymond; children, Pat Dennis, Pam (Scott) Edwards, Paula (Tom) Westaway, and Ray (Patty) Pokrandt ; grandchildren: Shawn and Eric Dennis, Bryan (Toni) and Jason Edwards and Mark and Becky Pokrandt ; great-grandchildren Gracie and Zachary Dennis; and brothers, Vernon (Evelyn) and Verlin (Gladys) Tesch. Velda was preceded by her parents; brother, Volvia; and infant brother, Veldar; and sisters, Verona Wendt and Vernice Roshinko. A funeral service for Velda will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 13, 2014 at Trinity Lutheran Church (370 Bowen St.) with Rev. Kelly Leary officiating. Visitation will be held from 3:00 p.m. until the time of the service. Burial will be at Lake View Memorial Park. The family would like to thank the staff at Island Shores for their wonderful care. We also want to express our thanks to the hospice staff, especially Mary, Jeanne, Kathy, and Ellen, for keeping Velda comfortable and loved. Too often, I believe, we find ourselves spending our time mourning our loss when I believe that we should be celebrating a life that will always continue to give long after it has ended... My grandmother Velda was a kind, selfless woman who helped to shape me as a human being. She was many things: a card shark, a great baker and cook, a shoulder to cry on, and a wonderful wife of over 64 years. The greatest thing that my grandmother was to me was hope. She was that rare human being that truly was the epitome of hope in humanity. Every attribute she had was built upon pleasing those that she loved, setting a good example for her family in all that she did, and in making the world that she was a part of a happier place with her presence. So on this solemn day, I choose not to remember the struggles that she went through but the joy that she brought me and her entire family. I choose to say that because of her wonderful and amazing life that I will never stop smiling when I think of her. I choose to celebrate the journey that she made to her new home among the angels of this world and of all past worlds. I choose her life and all that it continues to stand for. I choose to remember that Velda Pokrandt will never cease to be my hope in humanity. Love you Grandma, Bryan

Prell, Larry  
Larry L. Prell Larry L. Prell, 62, of Neenah, Wisconsin, passed away on December 10, 2014, at Theda Clark Hospital, with his family at his side. Larry died due to injuries he sustained from a fall at home. Larry was born on May 13, 1952, in Laona, Wisconsin, to Russell and Veronica (Kubis) Prell. Larry spent his childhood in Wabeno, Medford, and Madison, Wisconsin. As a senior in high school, Larry moved with his family to Eau Claire, where he graduated from Memorial High School in 1970. After high school, Larry attended and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Economics. While in college, Larry started working at UPS, and he ultimately made his career there. Larry also owned Prell's Schwinn Shop in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, from 1978-1984. In 1990, Larry and his family moved from Eau Claire to pursue a career in management with UPS. After 35 hard-worked years at UPS, he retired in 2007. Larry enjoyed a short retirement, but he soon got back into the workforce and began working as a TSO at the Outagamie County Airport where he worked from 2010-present. Larry is survived by his wife and best friend, Kathy (Rust) Prell. Larry and Kathy were proud to have celebrated 40 years of marriage together this past August. Larry is further survived by his daughter, Lisa (Ryan) Olson of Winneconne; daughter, Lindsey (Jonathan) Lewis of Estes Park, Colorado; son, Daniel Prell (Sara Nollenberg) of Neenah; parents, Russell and Veronica Prell of Eau Claire; sister, Jeanne (Bryan) Buzzell of Green Bay, and sister, Carol (Joe) Tracy of Eau Claire.

Larry was preceded in death by his son, Michael Prell; grandparents, Jason and Frieda Prell; grandma, Armella Krahulec; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Robert and Elaine Rust; and many beloved aunts and uncles. Without question, Larry was extremely genuine, honest, hardworking, and witty. He certainly wasn't quiet or shy, but that was one of the great qualities that everyone loved about him. His deep, booming voice and infectious laugh are going to be missed by anyone who was lucky enough to know him. Family was the most important aspect of his life, and he made that very clear in conversations with friends, co-workers, and even strangers. Larry taught his family countless life lessons using his humor and compassion, and he always told his family how much he loved them. He naturally knew how to be a great son, father, brother, grandpa, and husband and did it so effortlessly. He was selfless in so many aspects of his life, always putting the needs of others before his own. A visitation for family and friends will be on Friday, December 19, 2014, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at St. Margaret Mary Parish, 620 Division St. Neenah, and will continue on Friday, December 20 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the church. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at the church with Fr. Michael Ingold officiating. If you wish please submit online condolences to muellerfuneralhomeinc.com . Dad, although you're having fun in heaven with Michael, words cannot begin to describe how much we are going to miss you. You made all of us feel so loved. We know how proud you were of all of us, and we were so lucky to have called you ours. Love, Mom, Lisa, Lindsey, and Daniel
