Issue Date: September 13, 2018
Jean Louise (Schroeder) Vieth, 85, passed away Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018.
Born April 14, 1933, to Freida and Carl Schroeder, she grew up on a farm in the Town of Grover. She walked to school down the country roads with her sister Loraine mostly, as they talked about their life dreams.
A quiet person, she kept things to her self and wasn't one to wear her emotions on her sleeve. She was married to a stalwart Marine, Marty Vieth and they raised a family of three and lived on the Menominee River her entire adult life. She worked at Boucher's Bakery, where she kneaded and baked bread for many years.
She was known for a clean house and her approach in life was "It is what it is". She will be remembered for her Easter dinners with riced potatoes, glazed carrots and ham, early morning shifts at the bakery, hauling wood, picking up leaves with her husband and the old Bolens tractor. She made sure what needed to be done, got done.
She enjoyed perch and walleye fishing on Lake Gogebic, kept in tune to how the Packers and Badgers were doing and knew how to grow and harvest a garden.
She is survived by two sisters, Arlene Rocheleau and Loraine Crozier; a daughter, Holly (Mark) Brunner, two sons, David (Jayne) Vieth and Kevin (Julie) Vieth; seven grandchildren; two step-grandchildren Pat and Robin Hofer; four great-grandchildren and many nieces; nephews; dear friends and neighbors.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Martin in 2017; two brothers, Vernon and Carl and many other relatives and friends.
Visitation was held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Marinette on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 11 a.m. until time of the services at 1 p.m. Pastor Jon Tesch officiated with interment in Forest Home Cemetery in Marinette followed by a luncheon in the school gym. Hansen Onion Martell Funeral Home of Marinette assisted the family with arrangements. Memorials are appreciated to Trinity Lutheran Church.
