Stockbridge, WI

On January 15th, 2023, Matthew Casper Moehn, Jr., passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

The eldest of eleven children, he was born March 14, 1925, to the late Matthew and Magdalena Moehn. He married Sylvia (De La Hunt) on June 7, 1947, at St. Mary’s Church in Stockbridge.

Matthew (Matt) was a man of strong faith and love of family. He was a life-long member of St. Mary of the Seven Dolors in Stockbridge, served as parish treasurer (retired), and belonged to the Holy Name Society.

Matt held many titles in his life from farmer to turbine engineer, but his favorite titles were husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and Uncle Matt. He especially enjoyed visiting with family, telling stories from his childhood on the home farm or catching up on the latest family news.

He was fascinated with any piece of equipment with a motor and enjoyed reading owner manuals cover-to-cover. The first thing any of his children did after purchasing a car was to take dad for a ride. In his later years, much to his children’s dismay, he would sneak rides from willing drivers on equipment that interested him.

The golfing bug bit him finally from “those son-in-laws of mine”. He enjoyed league golf and partnered with his brother Art for years at Hickory Hills. He also liked playing with other family members and discussing the game after.

Matt was preceded in death by his wife, Sylvia; their twin daughters: Eileen (Moehn) Caldwell and Kathleen (Moehn) Hayes; a granddaughter: Angel Daun; his parents; and his siblings: Lucille, Luella, George, Harold, Clifford, Mary, Helen, and Arthur.

Matthew is survived by: Lawrence (Patricia) Moehn, and their children: Jason, Jeremiah, Justin, and Jarrett (Briana Knight); son-in-law: Gene Hayes (Kathy), and their children: Kelly Diederich, Megan (Brady) Forrestal, Erin (William) Kenneally, Molly (Andrew) Ceelen, and Matthew (Kaitlyn) Hayes; Eileen’s children: Katherine (Aly) Diop and Regina (Daniel) Stowers; Barbara (James) Schwarz, and their children: Amy Waggoner and Samantha (Brent) Wedan; Kaye (Joseph) Shukosky, and their children: Tracy (Daniel) Bits and Ariana (Toua) Xiong; Monica Lisowe (Ed Petersen), and her children: Sarah (Josh) Count and Jonathon (Bridgette) Lisowe; Mary (Roman) Daun, and their children: Adam and Sylvia (Dillon Berry); twenty-four great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Matt is further survived by his siblings and sisters-in-law: Gerald (Patricia) Moehn, Carol (Richard) Mueller, Doris Moehn, and Eileen Moehn; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 21, 2023, at St. Mary Catholic Church (120 Davis St.) in Stockbridge, with Rev. Michael Betley officiating. Friends may call at the church from 9:00 am until 12:45 pm on the day of service.

How do you explain the life of a man? A man who walked this earth with faith and love in everything he did. A man who was unwavering in his love and devotion to his family for 97 years! I find myself blessed to have had a Grandpa for so many years of my life and not just a Grandpa, but Grandpa Moehn. His laughter will be missed. I can still hear him say, “Hey, hey, Kid, and You don’t say.” I hope his voice in my head will not quiet with time, because his memory will never be forgotten.
All my love always, Grandpa. Give Grandma, Mom, and Eileen all my love in heaven. You will be missed.

Grandpa always would walk us to the car, as kids and adults with our own families. He made us feel like he would ensure our safety in his hands, right until the end. (This was proven when he cut down the tree I fell out of.) So many warm memories. We are so lucky.

Dear family,
We are so sorry to hear of Matt's passing. We send out sympathy to the entire family. With love & prayers, Ron & Linda

My favorite memories include Christmases on the family farm, with Grandpa watching a hoard of us run around the old barn outside while Grandma and the aunts cooked and organized the family feast. A gentler man I’ve never met. Thanks for the special moments you’ve given us! ???? You will be missed. ????

When I stayed at Grandpa and Grandma’s as a child it didn’t matter how early I was up Grandpa was always up and going already. He always worked so hard and never complained. I loved helping him (I mostly got in the way). But he had endless patience. We will miss you so very much Grandpa.
