ARLEEN J. BERGELIN
Arleen J. Bergelin, age 86, of Menomonie, passed away on Friday, Oct. 5, 2007, at the Dunn County Health Care Center in Menomonie. She suffered from congestive heart failure for the past five years.
Arleen was born Oct. 4, 1921, in Kewanee County to Louis and Martha (Jirovetz) Schultz. She was a graduate of Bolt Elementary School, and was then employed as a clerk at Country General Mercantile Store for 8 years until her marriage on Sept. 2, 1944, to Gerald Bergelin at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Gibson. They farmed in the Gibson/Denmark area until 1970 when they moved to Manitowoc where she was involved in many ladies groups. Gerald died suddenly during heart surgery Aug. 10, 1987, in Milwaukee. She then moved to Menomonie to be near her sons. She joined St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church and was very happy to be a part of their Dorcus Sewing Group. She also enjoyed quilting at the Senior Center for many
years until her health failed.
Arleen is survived by her sons, Richard (Jeanne) Bergelin and Don (Laura) Bergelin, both of Menomonie; grandchildren, Tim Bergelin of Marshfield, Scott Bergelin of Red Wing, Minn., Nick (Sara) Holcomb of Menomonie, Ben (Christie) Holcomb of Menomonie; great-grandchildren, Lexie Gibis and Danica Holcomb; sisters, Inez Glaubitz of Milwaukee, Dolores Budzban of Green Bay; brothers, Ray (Bea) Schultz of Green Bay, Glenn (Lillilan) Schultz of Two Rivers; sisters-in-law, Dorothy Schultz of Two Rivers and Dorothy Bergelin of Mishicot; brothers-in-law, Henry Pautz of Green Bay, Milton (Margaret) Bergelin of Denmark and Emanuel Bergelin of Manitowoc; special friends, Ruth McLin and Doris Anderson.
She is also survived by many nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband: Gerald; a son: Roger; a brother: Orville Schultz; and two brothers-in-law: Don Glaubitz and Peter Budzban.
Arleen was a loving Christian mother and set a wonderful example to all who knew her. She had an infectious laugh and treasured each day.
