Obituary for Rosemary "Bud" Meulemans

Rosemary (Bud) Meulemans (nee Dorsey) went to be united with her husband Don on Friday April 28, 2017. She was born on August 4, 1930, in Morrison, WI, to the late Lester and Genevieve (Nies) Dorsey.
Bud graduated from East De Pere High School in 1947 and married Don on June 27, 1953, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Morrison.
For many years she was employed at Metal Service Company in Green Bay and later worked at the American Legion. She was a past president and did volunteer service there. She cooked for the Friday night fish fries for many years and was always a smiling face in the kitchen. She was also a bookkeeper at Meulemans Electric. She worked at Subway after Don’s passing.
Bud enjoyed gardening, cooking, and canning. The aroma of fresh baked bread often greeted a visitor to her home. Between her own children and their Brittnacher cousins, there were plenty of hands for snipping beans and pitting cherries. In later years, she always had a fresh supply of home-baked cookies for the grandchildren.
Bud indulged her husband’s love of travel and they made many trips together internationally, visiting Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and many other countries. While her children were growing up, there were many camping trips as a family (including the dog) throughout the United States and Canada. After Don retired, there were road trips around the US with memorable stays at B&Bs and winters in Florida with their daughter. But Bud always enjoyed coming back home because she missed her grandchildren. There was always a good cribbage game to be had with grandma.
Bud enjoyed her trips “up north” with close friends, playing cards, golfing, fishing, and just enjoying each other’s company. She enjoyed family reunions and spending time with the many Meulemans relatives. She will be missed by family and many friends.
Survivors include her four children: two daughters, Linda (Jeff) Wolinski, Nebo, NC, and Sharon Minten, Wrightstown; and two sons, Mark (Deb) Meulemans, Wrightstown, and Paul Meulemans, Brillion.
She is survived by nine grandchildren: Aaron, Kyle (Amanda), Tyler (Julie), Drew (fiancé Sara), Zachary, Evan, and Jeremy Meulemans, and Alex (fiancé Carly) and Alyssa Minten; sisters-in-law Dorothy Biese, Pearl Meulemans, and Patricia Meulemans, brothers-in-law Gerald (Doris) and Roy (Bonnie) Meulemans, niece Mary (Mark) Ebben, nephew Don (Chris) Brittnacher, and other nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband Don, her parents, Don’s parents Herman and Marion Meulemans, sisters Marion and Mildred and brother Francis (and his wife Marge),and brothers-in-law Kenneth, Vincent, and Arlyn Meulemans, Ernest Brittnacher, Ed Schumacher, and Melvin Biese.
