Lois M. Plautz, 89, Pulaski, died peacefully Sunday, October 6, 2019, at Good Shepherd Nursing Home in Seymour. The daughter of August and Emma (Madsen) Umland was born December 12, 1929, in Aniwa. Lois married Dean Plautz in 1977. She had a strong work ethic and carried it across her various jobs. Lois worked for Royal Cleaners, Larsen Canning, Ultra Plating, and other housekeeping jobs. In her later years, she worked on the farm.
Lois was a longtime member of Peace Lutheran Church. She enjoyed baking and canning; especially sauerkraut. Lois had a passion for yodeling and was happy some members of the family carried on this talent. She loved her family deeply and she wouldn’t hesitate to reprimand a grandchild as needed; she was proud of her children and grandchildren. Her loyal canine companion, Shep, held a special place in her heart.
Survivors include her children: Sandra (J.C.) Santy, Pulaski, Judi Conrad, Pulaski, and Vince (Elizabeth) Simich, Las Vegas, NV: grandchildren: Bradley (Jolene) Santy, Pulaski, Lisa (Lucas) Matuszak, Pulaski, Amy (Jon) Sobieck, Oneida, Bryan Conrad, Pulaski, and Heather Conrad, Pulaski; great grandchildren: Lea, Brandon, Brody, and Mylee Santy, Pulaski, Mason, Maccoy, and Lily Matuszak, Pulaski; several nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.
Lois was preceded in death by her first husband, Kenneth Jacques; her second husband, John Splan; her third husband, Dean Plautz; six sisters and one brother: Elsie, Dora, Mary, Ruth, Delores, Luella, and Al.
Friends gathered with the family from 9:00-11:00 a.m. Friday, October 18th at Peace Lutheran Church, Green Bay. The Funeral Service was celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Friday at the church, Pastor Stuart Dornfeld officiated. Entombment will take place at Shrine of the Good Shepherd Mausoleum.
