Jansch OFM Cap, Fr. Ronald F.

Fr. Ronald Jansch OFM Cap, 89, of St. Lawrence Seminary in Mount Calvary, WI, passed away peacefully Monday, July 28, 2014, at the Villa Loretto Nursing Home in Mount Calvary.

He was born January 30, 1925, in Neisse, Silesia, Germany; a son of the late Francis & Anna (Jahnel) Jansch. His family immigrated to the United States in 1930. He was enrolled at Our Lady Queen of Angels School in New York City, which was served by friendly and dedicated Capuchins. This inspired him to proceed with his vocation. Fr. Ron entered the Capuchin Order in 1942 and was ordained into the priesthood in 1950.

In 1953, he began his distinguished teaching career as a historian at St. Lawrence Seminary in Mount Calvary, Wisconsin. In 1964, he began teaching theology at Marian College in Fond du Lac where he also served as Chaplain from 1968 to 1985. He continued part time as a history professor until 2002; attaining an academic achievement of 50 years of teaching.

Fr. Ron is survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, friends, and the community of the Capuchin Friars with whom he prayed, lived, and served for 72 years.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 AM on Thursday, August 7, 2014, at St. Lawrence Seminary Chapel 301 Church Street Mount Calvary, WI 53057. The Rev. Michael Sullivan, Provincial, will preside. Burial will take place in the St. Lawrence Friary Cemetery.

The Visitation for Fr. Ron will be at St. Lawrence Seminary Chapel on Wednesday, August 6th from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM with a Vigil Service held at 7:00 PM and again Thursday morning from 9:00 AM until the time of services.
