Obituary

Jean Louise (Schroeder) Vieth April 14, 1933 - September 8, 2018

Jean was mostly a quiet person who kept things pretty much to herself. We all knew that she wasn’t one to wear her emotions on her sleeve. Married to Marty, a stalwart Marine, raising a family of three children, and living on the Menominee River her entire adult life, she was made of the things around her: Marty, her children, the river and, of course, the dough she kneaded and baked at Boucher’s Bakery, where she worked for many years. Molded by her spot-clean house, her daughter and sons, and the ever-changing moods of a river that brought in and ushered out countless seasons; she put her heart and soul into a pragmatic “it is what it is” approach to life. Riced potatoes, glazed carrots and ham at Easter, early morning shifts at the bakery, and hauling wood and picking up leaves with Marty and the old Bolens tractor will always remind us of her. She saw to things, making sure that what needed to be done, got done. Always pragmatic, to know her gave you insight into nonstop perch and walleye fishing on Lake Gogebic, how the Packers and Badgers were doing, and knowing the right way to put in a garden make it grow and bring it to harvest. Born Jean Louise Schroeder on April 14, 1933 to Freida and Carl Schroeder, Jean grew up on a farm with a long winding driveway that ended on a country road that led to other country roads in the Town of Grover, Wisconsin. She walked to school down those roads, with her sister Loraine mostly, and you can only imagine what dreams they talked about together. Those days are long ago now and her strong faith has returned her home to wander the fields of heaven. There to greet her are her husband Martin, who preceded her in death in 2017, brothers Vernon and Carl, Dad, Mom and countless others who’ve walked those Marinette County roads before her. She leaves behind sisters Arlene Rocheleau and Loraine Crozier. Left to grieve are her daughter Holly (Mark) Brunner, sons David (Jayne) Vieth and Kevin (Julie) Vieth. She also leaves behind grandchildren Sara (John Bauer) Meraki, Rachel (Andrew) Maas, Daniel Brunner, Hannah Brunner, Ryan Vieth, Austin Vieth, and Amanda (Brandon) Reinke. Step grandchildren Pat and Robin Hofer, great grandchildren James, Jayson, Joel and Jakob Maas. Jean also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, dear friends and neighbors. Special thanks to the wonderful caregivers at Washington Square in Marinette, especially an angel named Anne, where Jean found a new home but for a brief time and fast friends in staff, who pledged exceptional care throughout this past year. Services for Jean are on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1501 Thomas Street, Marinette, WI 54143. Pastor Jon Tesch officiating. Instate will be from 11:00 until the time of the service at 1:00 pm at the church. The Hansen & Onion Funeral home is serving the family. Interment will be immediately after the service at Forest Home Cemetery in Marinette. Luncheon to follow in school gym. Memorials are appreciated to Trinity Lutheran Church.
