Issue Date: August 30, 2017
Dorothy K. (Fronsee) Neville, 95, passed away Saturday night, Aug. 26 with loved ones by her side.
Born July 31, 1922 in Marinette, she grew up in Menekaunee and attended Catholic school and then attended Marinette Public High so she could pursue her love of sports.
On Nov. 28, 1940, she married her childhood sweetheart, Leonard J. Neville at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. They enjoyed 43 years together and now are united again.
A homemaker for most of her years, before adopting their children she worked as a seamstress at Lauerman's and packaged at Scott Paper during World War II.
A great hostess, she loved cooking, baking, socializing, playing cards, watching the Packers and was happy to see a friendly face. She was selflessness, a mother to many, and had unconditional love and strength. She will be remembered for her words of wisdom and high morals.
She is survived by a daughter, Susan Beno (Neville); three grandsons; a granddaughter and two great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Bernette M. Fronsee (Kuffel) and Peter J. Fronsee; her husband, Leonard; a son, Leonard Neville Jr.; four siblings, Estelle Colvin, Marian Reinke, Peter Fronsee Jr. and June Schomaker.
