Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband is a dispatcher and I am a stay at home mom of three little boys and one little girl who kinda fell into the family tree thing. We found the program Family Tree Maker at Salvation Army one day in the book section, and thought hey that might be fun. I never knew how addicting it is. In the summer you can find us searching cemeteries and churches and historical societies looking for those things that bring our tree to life. So we do this at night and in our spare time when the kids are busy.

I leave flowers on memorials that are members of my family. So if you see a flower by me and you are related to the person, so am I :) Feel free to contact me, I love improving my tree.

Joseph Desjardin
Hi again
Found a little more detail about him. It appears he was born May 8, 1835 in Canada, and died July 12, 1912. He was a member of Co. B, Hatch's Minnesota Calvary.

His name should have an "S" on the end. I believe this may be Joseph Des Jardins who served during the civil war from Maine

Fautsch in Saint Joseph Cemetery
Rachel and Paul,
I just wanted to let you know that I had time to go through about 1/3 of the cemetery, when I was looking for Raymond, and took pictures of all the Fautsch gravestones that I saw. There are now a few new ones on Find A Grave that I added today. If any are part of your family, let me know, I would be happy to transfer them. Just send me a note with their memorial numbers.
Holly J.

Marcella Kaszubowki
MARCELLA S. KASZUBOWSKI, age 92, of Thorp, passed away peacefully at the Clark County Health Care Center, in Owen, on Friday, August 3, 2012 surrounded by her loving family.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30am on Monday, August 6, 2012 at St. Bernard - St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Thorp. Rev. Don Meuret will officiate and burial will follow in New St. Hedwig's Catholic Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Kevin Kaszubowski, Marty Kaszubowski, Kurt Alger, Michelle Maier, Josh Jordan, Joey Jordan, Jason Kluck and Jennifer Lew. Visitation was Sunday, August 5, 2012 at Thorp Funeral Home from 4pm to 8pm, with a 7:30pm rosary service. Visitation will also be held at Thorp Funeral Home, on Monday, August 6, 2012 from 9am until 10am.
Marcella Sophie Depa was born on October 28, 1919 in the Town of Taft, Taylor County, to Paul and Anna (Pozdol) Depa, the eldest of thirteen children. She was raised on the family farm and received her education at the Red Brick School in the Town of Taft. At the age of 17, Marcella moved to Chicago, IL and worked at Western Electric and at the Kimball Piano Company. She continued to help the family back home by sending most of her paychecks to them. Later she helped many of her siblings gain employment in the big city. She was united in marriage to Ted A. Kaszubowski on November 13, 1948 at St. Mary's Czestochowa Catholic Church, rural Stanley. They farmed in the Town of Thorp until retiring in 1982. Together they raised six children and taught them strong values, good work ethics and to always help others.
In her spare time, Marcella loved growing large gardens, canning anything and everything, sewing, making patchwork quilts, creating family history journals and photo albums, cooking up a huge pot of chicken soup on Sundays for anyone that might stop over, and spending time and babysitting her precious grandchildren. Her love of family and her faith in God molded her into a very caring, giving, compassionate, and strong-willed woman.
She was a member of the Rosary & Altar Society at St. Mary's Czestochowa, and also was a member of the PCCW at St. Bernard-St. Hedwig's Catholic Church.
She is survived by her children: Carol Kaszubowski (Theresa) of Thorp, Betty (Louis Jr.) Stokosa of Lublin, Pat (Neil) Alger of Thorp, Robert (Debra) Kaszubowski of Thorp, Bonnie (Adam) Niedzwiecki of Thorp, Linda (Mike) Jordan of Lafayette, IN; 18 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; 3 brothers: Louis (Bernice) Depa of Thorp, Peter (Alvina) Depa of Stanley, Joseph (Joan) Depa of St. John, IN; two sisters: Julie Wiklanski of Petosky, MI, Pauline Andronowitz of Shelton, CT; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ted, on November 7, 2008; her parents; one daughter, Janice Kaszubowski, in infancy; 4 brothers: Frank, Andrew, Anton and John Depa; and 3 sisters: Helen Filipek, Frances Norks and Agnes Zielke.
Thorp Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
