Dorothy Theckla Owen

Mar 19, 1925 - Feb 25, 2024

location-icon

West Bend, WI

Dorothy Theckla Owen, nee Rettler, aged 98, passed away less than one month short of her 99th birthday on Sunday, February 25, 2024. She passed peacefully in her sleep. For the last two years, she resided at New Perspectives West Bend, in both their assisted living facility and then in Betty’s Harbor Memory Care Unit where she was cared for until her passing. Dorothy, along with her twin brother Donald, was born to Joseph and Apollonia (Gundrum) Rettler at home on the farm on Clover Road in the Town of Hartford on March 19, 1925. In 1947 she met the GI of her dreams, Ernest D. Owen, and waited for and finally married him after his seven years of service at St. Kilian’s Catholic Church on February 6, 1954. They made their lifelong home in Hartford and welcomed their only daughter, Katherine in 1960. Through the years, Dorothy, no stranger to hard work, held positions primarily in food service beginning at age 15 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hartford and later at St. Kilian’s Catholic School Cafeteria, Gateway Nursing Home, Super Value’s Bakery and most recently in the HUHS Lunch Program where she finally retired in 1991. During the War she worked at Weyenberg Shoe Factory and Libby’s Canning Factory, as well. She served in many civic and church organizations including the Daughters of Isabella, Christian Mothers, and the VFW #8834 Ladies Auxiliary. Up until just a few short years ago she gave of her time and talent in service to her beloved parish, St. Kilian’s, in a variety of ways, like counting money and preparing and serving funeral meals. In spite of her stoicism, which was typical of her generation, she had a wicked sense of humor. She loved a good laugh and was a practical jokester. Having grown up during the Great Depression on “The Farm” surround by 5 brothers, she learned to hold her own. It was during these formative years that her characteristic tenacity was nurtured. Nothing life threw at her was too daunting and the simple pleasures are what she found to be the most precious. The things she enjoyed the most included summers at the cottages on Little Cedar Lake, baking bread and canning, antiquing, and a good “Old Fashioned.” She also enjoyed an occasional bus trip to a casino, a daily walk, nurturing her geraniums, praying her rosary, completing word search books, watching sporting events on TV, and walking up the block to Highland Ave to either visit her parents who moved there from the farm or her daughter Kathy and family when they made their home there. Her most recent pleasures included FaceTime calls from the “Kids”, visits from friends and relatives, Kentucky Fried Chicken, a good cheeseburger, anything chocolate, and being in her own home surrounded by her things and lifelong memories. Her greatest source of pride were her granddaughters Emily and Nora and their accomplishments and was beyond honored to be a great-grandmother to their five beautiful children. Dorothy’s life was one of service and devotion to family and her Catholic faith. Throughout her long life she unwaveringly upheld her convictions. By her example, the values of loyalty, strength through adversity, love and trust in God, hard work, simple practicality, and common sense have been passed on as a true legacy that will undoubtedly live on in the lives of those she loved the most. Those who preceded her in death included her parents, Joe and Abbie (Gundrum) Rettler, brothers and sisters-in-law, Albert (Winnie), Norman (Ruth), Donald (Frances), Harry (Priscilla) and Joseph Jr. (Jeanette) Rettler. She was also predeceased by her husband, Ernie Owen and son-in-law Kip Nelson. Those she leaves behind to cherish her memory include her daughter Katherine Knapp, (Steve), grand-daughters and their husbands, Emily ( Alex) Weisberg, Nora (Andrew) Hartzell and great-grandchildren, Tzofiah, Oriel, and Yarah Weisberg, and Lewis and Maren Hartzell, along with many dear nieces and nephews, other relatives, friends, and neighbors. A memorial prayer service will be held, Tuesday March 12. 2024 at 11a.m. at the Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home located at 226 South Main St., Hartford WI. Family will receive relatives and friends from 10-11 a.m. at the funeral home. Committal will take place at St. Kilian's Cemetery. The Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home-Hartford is serving the family.

West Bend, WI

On Monday, February 26, 2024, Donovan “Don” Donner ascended to his heavenly home surrounded in the love and comfort of his family. Born on March 23, 1934 in Swanville, Minnesota, Don was the child of the late Paul and Hylma (nee Koenig) Donner. Don married the love of his life, Nancee “Nan”, with whom he shared 68 wonderful years full of great memories and devotion to being an excellent husband, father, grandfather, brother, and child of God. In Don’s early years, he was a reservist in the ROTC. Subsequently, Don studied engineering and found his 36-year long career with Modern Equipment Company, working his way up through the company to eventually find himself in the role of Vice President of Sales. Don will be forever remembered for his strong work ethic and dedication to providing for his family. In his free time, Don liked to lace up his hiking boots and head for the trails. He enjoyed taking in all of God’s beauty in the world and in the serenity of nature. Don and Nan relished the liberty and relaxation of retirement, oftentimes hitting the road and traveling – a favorite of Don’s being to Sedona, Arizona. Anywhere Don was, though, he never gave up the chance to catch his favorite sports teams in action: he was an avid and lifelong Packers, Bucks, and Badgers fan. Above all these things, Don was a God fearing, God loving man who adored his wife and family. We take comfort in knowing that he is now with his Lord and Savior, and we will never forget all the love and memories he shared with us. Don will be forever missed by his wife, Nan; five daughters, Kim Donner, Cindy (Mike Schneider) Donner, Kelly Donner, Wendy (Gary) Freitag, Julie (Andy Brunner) Donner; his eight adoring grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and sister, Donna Schulz. He is also lovingly remembered by his nieces, nephews, and friends over all the years. He was met at Heaven’s Gates by his parents; his grandson, Michael Freitag; and his brother-in-law, Marlin Schulz. Don’s family will celebrate his life with a private service. In honor of Don’s spirit, please consider making a donation in his name to one of his three favorited charities: Milwaukee Rescue Mission, Samaritan’s Purse, or Northbrook Church in Richfield. “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” ~Matthew 25:21 Myrhum-Patten Funeral & Cremation Service has been entrusted with Don’s arrangements.

Randal "Randy" Donald Cardarelle

Feb 27, 1958 - Feb 25, 2024

West Bend, WI

Randal “Randy” Donald Cardarelle Randy Cardarelle, born February 27, 1958, in West Bend, WI, has been called to his eternal home on February 25, 2024, after an extensive seven-year battle with cancer. As a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, he faithfully followed Jesus through the good and difficult times, relying on Him for strength and hope. Eager to join the military, he enlisted in the United States Air Force at the age of 17, leaving for basic training in July 1976, and became an aircraft mechanic on B-52’s.  Randy then transferred to the West Bend Army National Guard, as a Blackhawk crew chief.  He separated from the military with an honorable discharge in February 1982. Randy transitioned from his military service to over-the-road trucking from 1983 to 1995.  He knew the roads so well, you never needed GPS, you would just ask him for directions- even to the most random places throughout the country. He became a highway maintainer at the Ozaukee County Highway Department for 24 years until he retired in May 2019. One of his favorite thing about this job was plowing snow and helping people get through the difficult winter weather.  He took so much pride in his job and the importance of his work. Packers Season ticket holder since 1990, Randy enjoyed going to games, one year making it to every home game for the season, and always having “a guy” for everything (a beer guy, a parking guy, etc). He followed the Packers from Milwaukee to Green Bay and could often be found tailgating before the game. Before walking into Lambeau, look at the personalized bricks on the ground and you will find that he will forever be at every Packer home game. When it was the weekend, the TV would be split showing football on one side and Nascar on the other. He was one of Dale Earnhardt’s biggest fans. His love of football and wrestling was passed down from his son to his grandson. He was a referee and coach for football, a member of the EAA, a coach for wrestling, Nascar season ticket holder, and camping fanatic. Randy was a man of many interests. He was a man who could always be found outside either building wood projects, working on his family’s vehicles, trying new recipes, hunting, and grilling. If you ever needed a swig of Jack Daniels, all you had to do was go to his toolbox in the shed. Although he has moved on to a better place, his humor, whit, and active nature will be missed by all.  Most of all, he adored his grandchildren. Known to them as “papa”, they were his pride and joy, keeping him going through his last few years. Doing whatever they wanted, Papa couldn’t say no to them. From golf cart rides, to seeing the neighbor’s cows, snuggling on his chair, playing games, and smelling their stinky feet, he loved these kids. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Donna Cardarelle (Vande Boom), they had four children and four grandchildren; Samantha Cardarelle (with significant other, Nick Rocci), Maranda Cardarelle, Vince Cardarelle (married to Alyssa Cardarelle with two children, Isaiah and Joel) and Claire Cardarelle (engaged to Steve McCarty with one child, Adaline and expecting their second, Kacey). He was a proud, loving husband, father and grandfather who consistently supported his children throughout every endeavor. He is also survived by his siblings Gary (Jodi) Cardarelle, Bill Cardarelle, Deb (Mike) Reindl, and Bob (Patti) Cardarelle, along with numerous nieces, nephews, friends, and family. Randy is preceded in death by his parents Donald and Jeanette Cardarelle, siblings Cheryl Eberhardt and Jim Cardarelle.  A visitation for Randy will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2024, from 9:30AM until 11:45AM, with a Funeral Service at 12:00PM, at St John’s Ev. Lutheran Church, 809 S. 6th Ave. West Bend. The burial will follow at Washington County Memorial Park, will Full Military Honors.  In lieu of flowers donates to either Chicks for a Cause Chix 4 a Cause LTD | Non-Profit | United States or the Rochester Hope Lodge Hope Lodge Rochester (donordrive.com) in Randy’s name would be appreciated.

Eugene R. Roell

Jun 29, 1940 - Feb 26, 2024

location-icon

West Bend, WI

Eugene R. “Gene” Roell, 83, of West Bend, passed away on Monday, February 26, 2024, at the Waterford in West Bend with his family at his side.   Gene was born on June 29, 1940, in West Bend, the son of the late Milton and Ella (nee Koch) Roell. On July 9, 1960, he was united in marriage to Mary Roell in West Bend. Mary preceded Gene in death on July 13, 2019. Gene’s life was a tapestry woven with simple pleasures and steadfast routines. His days unfolded against the backdrop of West Bend, where he frequented Dicks Tap with his wife, savoring the camaraderie and the clink of glasses. On warm afternoons, he’d retreat to his back porch, an observer of life’s passing parade—cars gliding by, each with its own story etched in exhaust fumes and tire tracks. Friday nights were sacred—a tradition carved in golden beer foam and crispy fish batter. At No No’s, Gene’s family gathered around wooden tables, laughter mingling with the aroma of fried fish. For 43 years, Gene’s hands toiled at Gehl Company, a testament to loyalty and craftsmanship. Amid the hum of machinery, he shaped metal into purpose, each weld a silent promise to provide for those he loved. But it wasn’t all work and routine. Gene’s heart raced when the checkered flag dropped. NASCAR—a symphony of roaring engines and daring maneuvers—captivated him. Dale Earnhardt, the Intimidator, was his hero. Gene cheered from his living room, the TV screen a portal to speed and adrenaline. Then there were the Canadian fishing trips—a pilgrimage of rods, reels, and tall tales. With brothers and brothers-in-law, he cast lines into pristine lakes, chasing elusive trout and walleye. The sun painted their boat, and laughter echoed across water as they swapped stories of the ones that got away. And the garden—Gene’s canvas of soil and sunlight. He’d pore over seed catalogs, eyes tracing the promise of giant pumpkins and colossal zucchinis. Each spring, he’d plant those seeds, coaxing life from the earth. His vegetables grew—monstrous and proud—proof that patience and care could yield abundance.   Gene’s legacy wasn’t etched in headlines or record books. It bloomed in the quiet moments—the clink of glasses, the roar of engines, the taste of fried fish. His life, like the vegetables he nurtured, reached for the sky, rooted in the ordinary yet extraordinary soil of West Bend. And so, as the sun dipped below the horizon, casting long shadows on his porch, Gene would sit, content. The cars still passed, the beer still flowed, and the memories—like seeds planted deep—blossomed into stories that would outlast the seasons. Above all else he loved all his family, grandkids, and great grandson.   Those Gene leaves behind to cherish his memory include a son, Jeff (Shelly) Roell; two grandchildren, Sydney Roell and Tyler Roell; a great grandson, Greyson Roell; four brothers, Bobby Roell, Donald (Dee) Roell, David Roell, and Jack Roell; two brothers-in-law, Paul (Bev) Hensler and Tom (Karen) Hensler; a sister-in-law, Paula Hensler; and other relatives and friends.   In addition to his wife and parents, he is preceded in death by two sisters, Marian Roell and Margaret Roell; sisters-in-law, Patricia Hensler, Mary Roell, Maddie Roell, and Jan Roell; two brothers-in-law, Ed Heizle and Bob Hensler.   VISTIATION: Gene’s family will greet relatives and friends at Myrhum – Patten Funeral & Cremation Service, 1315 W. Washington Street, in West Bend on Monday, March 4, 2024, from 4:00 p.m. until 5:45 p.m.   SERVICE: A service for Gene will be held on Monday at the funeral home at 6:00 p.m. with Deacon Mark Jansen officiating.   The Myrhum – Patten Funeral & Cremation Service has been entrusted with Gene’s arrangements.
