Chilton, WI

Harold M. Woelfel, age 83, of Chilton died peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, March 13, 2020 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton.  He was born March 6, 1937 in the Town of Charlestown, son of the late Adelbert and Coletta (Gebhard) Woelfel.  

Harold served in the United States Army Reserves and worked as a supervisor for the Carnation Company in Chilton for much of his working career.  He later worked at The Parts Depot until his full retirement in 2013.  

He was a man of deep faith who was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Stockbridge.  When vacationing with the family up north, it was understood that vacation never really began until after attending mass on Saturday.  He was also a member of the Eagle’s Club and served as Town Clerk in Charlestown for nearly 20 years.  

Harold enjoyed following the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers.  Although he did do some fishing while up north, he always said he would never set foot on Lake Winnebago until it had frozen all the way to the bottom.  

As a strong willed individual, Harold took great pride in being timely for all events in his life.  He loved reading the newspaper, and was known to read it from front to back.  And, although he was a bit unsure about bringing a cat into his home, over the years he developed a true love for all of the cats in his life.  His best buddy, Freddie will miss him dearly.   Above all the blessings in his life, Harold especially loved his family and took great pride in all of his grandchildren.

Harold will be greatly missed by his wife, Agnes, and his girls:  Debbie (Ed) Wenig, Sandy (Mike) Popp, and Lori (Gordy) Fhlug; his grandchildren:  Kelly Wenig, Christopher Wenig, Renee (Bob) Vickman, Andrew (Marissa) Wenig, Nicole (Gus) Garcia, Brian (Amber) Popp, Craig Fhlug and special friend Danielle, and Tyler (Beth) Fhlug; his great-grandchildren:  Edward, Theodore, Garrett, Gavin, Graham, Wyatt, Ava, Cecelia, and Bristol; and siblings-in-law:  Phyllis Schott, John Mueller, Bob (Marilou) Mueller, Eddie (Candy) Mueller, Mary (Paul) Fritsch, and Roger Mueller.  

Harold was preceded in death by his parents: Adelbert & Coletta; his in-laws: Nicholas & Adeline Mueller; his siblings:  Bernadine (Eugene) Holschbach, Jeanette (Lawrence “Squeak”) Schaller, and Bob Woelfel; brothers-in-law:  Claude “Sonny” Mueller and Marvin Mueller; sisters-in-law: Sandy Mueller and Joan Mueller; and a nephew: Cory Mueller.  

Funeral service will be at 11:30 am on Friday, May 29, 2020 at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton with Rev. Michael Betley officiating.  Friends may call at the funeral home from 9:30 am until 11:30 am.

A special thank you to Dr. Nick Freeman and the staff at St. Elizabeth Hospital for the wonderful care, guidance and compassion shown to Harold and his family throughout this difficult time.  Also, thank you to Father Mike Betley and Diane Wickersheim for their prayers and support.
Dear Agnes and family, our deepest sympathy goes out to your family on the death of Harold. May God keep your family in His care as you mourn his death. Sincerely, Tom & Linda

Dear Aggie & family,
I am so very sorry to hear of Harold's passing. It was really a joy being neighbors with you all those years! I remember so well babysitting you girls ( talk about old age here!) But as a kid, Harold was such a gentle giant to me back then as our dad was such a shorter skinny guy! Know that my thoughts & prayers are with you at this most difficult time ?
Take care. God Bless!

Dear Aggie, Debbie, Sandy & Lori
Please accept my sympathy, thoughts and prayers.
My childhood was the best!
This was in large part due to having your family as a neighbor.
Your dad was proud of each of you girls!
Treasure your memories and may they sustain you in the days ahead.
I apologise for being unable to attend services .
