Donald Propson
Bev Oakley shared this information

Don Propson, 63, was with his wife, Nancy A. Kaster, and others who loved and cared for him, when he died on March 29, 2004 at St. Joseph Hospital in Marshfield. Don fought with determination and without complaint for 3 years, first with bone marrow cancer and then with lymphoma.

Don was born on January 24, 1941 to Helen {Goeser} Propson and the late Al Propson in Fond du Lac, Wis. He married Nancy A. Kaster on July 15, 1989, and they shared 15 wonderful years of married life together. Don attended Hilbert High School, graduating in 1959. After graduation he was employed by Wicks Lumber in Forest Junction, prior to enlisting in the Air Force, where he served from 1962 to 1966 as Communications Specialist in the Philippines. Upon his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Don returned to employment at Wicks Lumber Yard in Green Bay for a period of time prior to becoming employed as a salesman for Hoida Lumber. Don spent many years with Hoida and, along the way, met hundreds of people who all benefitted from his honest, practical spirit and quick wit. Don retired from Hoida on July 3, 1997 to focus on the true loves of his life, his family, dear friends and the outdoors.

Don was an avid hunter and fisherman and he spent many cherished times in pursuit of his next big trophy. Don took frequent trips with close friends "out west" to spend time in the mountains, where he found his greatest peace. Don treasured his time spent on Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago. He also enjoyed golf, spending time at Berry Lake, hiking in the woods, his involvement with thoroughbred breeding and racing, and sharing his morning coffee with good friends. Perhaps his greatest sadness when facing the challenge of his illness came from his intense desire to share himself and his interests with his three grandsons, and the knowledge that this would not come to be.

Don will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Nancy A. Kaster; his three daughters, Wendy Nysted and her husband Mark; Trudy Propson; Jenny Morrow and her husband, Jon; three grandsons: Dylan Nysted, Logan Morrow and Mason Morrow; his mother, Helen Propson; his stepmother, Jeanette Propson; brothers and sisters: Joan and Jim Thiel, Robert & Ellen Propson, Jim and Sandy Propson, Dave Propson, Mary and Rick Fletcher; his mother-in-law, Mildred Kaster, Wendy and Trudy's mom, Ann Propson; brothers-in-law: Martin Jay Kaster and his wife Debbie, Richard S. Kaster and his wife Nancy R.; two sisters-in-law: Sr. Marsaia Kaster and Nancy M. Kaster; many nieces, nephews and other relatives and cherished friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Al Propson and his father-in-law Martin S. Kaster.

Friends may call at the Proko-Wall Funeral Home & Crematory, 1630 E. Mason St. from 4 to 8 p.m. {TODAY} Wednesday. VFW Memorial Service 6:30 p.m. TODAY. Visitation will continue after 9:30 a.m. Thursday until the time of service. Funeral Service 10:30 a.m. at the funeral home with Rev. John Parlow officiating.

Was Victim Of Spanish Influenza

Valentine J{acob} Petrie one of the Sturdy Young men of this Community Died Tuesday.


One of the victims of the epidemic of Spanish influenza,which is sweeping the country and which has taken a firm hold in the western portion of the county, is Valentine J. Petrie, who after a brave struggle died on Tuesday evening, Nov. 12, at the home of his father-in-law, Wm. Jaeger in South Stockbridge. The entire Jaeger family was stricken with the disease two weeks ago but all seemed to have it in a lighter form than the deceased who lingered at death's door for several days, finally yielding up his life. Friends and relatives hoped against hope that he might pull through but it was not to be and the greatest sorrow is felt over his passing.

Valentine J. Petrie, a son of Anton {and Mary Kirsten} Petrie of Stockbridge village, was born at St. Joe, Fond du Lac county, May 7, 1881. He came with his parents to Stockbridge in 1903 and after completing the school course he started out for himself and 1914 he entered the employ of Wm. Jaeger and assisted him on the farm, giving excellent satisfaction and remaining with him ever since. He was married on Nov. 13, 1917, just one year previous to the day of his death, to Miss Edna Jaeger. They continued to make their home on the Jaeger farm but were preparing to moved onto another farm of Mr. Jaeger's and had the foundation built for a new home in which he and his wife were deeply interested. But their plans for the future were interrupted by the hand of death. The history of the young man's life is short but gave promise of being a creditable one. Had he been granted a long lease upon this earth there is no doubt but what he would have been one of the successful men of his day. He was upright and honest and gave evidence of the highest traits of character since boyhood. He was well liked by everybody, made friends of all whom he met in a business or social way and was considered one of the sterling young men of this community. The funeral which was held on Thursday morning {Nov. 14} was necessarily private, the remains being taken from the home direct to St. Augustine's cemetery where the burial services were held. Rev. Fr. J.E. Meagher officiating. Notwithstanding the fact that pre-caution had to be taken on account of the influenza a large procession followed the remains to their last resting place, among them members of the Holy Name Society of St. Augustine's church, of which he was a member.

He is survived by his young wife, parents, three brothers, Leonard and Benjamin of Stockbridge and Leo with the 32nd division of the American army in France, three sisters, Olive, and Apolonia os Stockbridge and Mrs. John Schumacher of Johnsburg. The deepest sympathy is expressed for the bereft ones.

Aged Resident Dies Suddenly

C. H. M. Petersen Found Dead in His Bed Monday Morning

Was up previous evening


Began life as a Teacher, Engaged in the Mercantile Business, Was a Farmer and Manufacturer-Took part in War in Europe, Was a member of State Legislature.

On Monday morning C. H. M. Petersen, an aged resident of this city, was found dead in his bed, the end having come, it is believed, some time during the night. Aside from the debility which accompanied old age he was troubled with heart disease. The evening before he was up and around as usual and there was nothing in his condition which foretold the approaching dissolution, when he retired. It was apparent that he had passed away without a struggle.

The funeral will be held tomorrow. There will be brief services at the home at nine o'clock in thus having passed his eightieth year. He was educated at the Seminary at Dondern, Schleswig. After completing the course at the institution, he taught school for five years when he entered the army and took part in the Denmark-Schleswig war, which lasted two years. At the close in 1850 he came to America and clerked in a mercantile establishment in Chicago. He did not remain there long before he went to Milwaukee and engaged in teaching in a Lutheran parochial school, then under Rev. Lochner. At the end of two years he removed with his family to Racine and opened a store. In 1861 he went to New Holstein and bought a farm on which he lived until he removed with his family to Plymouth in 1890. While at New Holstein he served in state legislature four terms in 1868, 1869, 1872 and 1881. He was chairman of his town and for many years president of the Calumet County Fire Insurance Company. While living in Plymouth he was for some time secretary and treasurer of the Schwartz Manufacturing company. He was at one time a Free Mason and an Odd Fellow but when the lodges in New Holstein broke up he dropped his membership in the two orders. He was twice married and there are two children of the first marriage surviving-Mrs. R. Haygenga of Brant and Mrs. H. Bruns of Beloit. He was married to his second wife, Miss Augusta Bodenstab, in Sheboygan in 1859. Three children of the second union survive as follows: Dr. F. J. Petersen of Lompoc, California; E. L. Petersen and Hugo Petersen, of this city.

The deceased was a man of wide experience and of considerable education, and the account of his life shows that he was useful to his fellowmen. He was strictly honest, but by thrift and economy he was enabled to accumulate some wealth. His opinions carried weight with those best acquainted with him.
