Theresa Lasee

Theresa Marie Lasee, 88, of Sugar Creek Country Club in Bradenton, Florida, and formerly of Jacksonport, WI, passed away Tuesday afternoon, January 29, 2013, at her daughter’s home in Jacksonport under hospice care, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born October 2, 1924, in Sturgeon Bay, WI, the daughter of Anton and Theresa (Zelhofer) Searth. After graduating from Sevastopol High School in 1942, Theresa rode the bus along with the shipyard workers during WWII to McCullans Store in Sturgeon Bay, where she worked as a clerk.

On October 26, 1946, she was united in marriage to Francis Lasee at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Jacksonport (now Stella Maris Parish-Jacksonport Location). Together, they owned and operated a dairy farm until their retirement in 1984. Francis preceded her in death on April 26, 1997.

Theresa enjoyed drawing, crocheting, reading, playing cards, and RV camping. She began watercolor painting after her husband passed away and continued until the end of her life. Theresa was involved in forming and dancing with the square-dancing group, Peninsula Promenaders of Door County. She was also a member of St. Michael’s Altar Society and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Theresa will be dearly missed by her children, Mary Jean (Asa) Varner, of Bradenton, FL, Eileen (John) Phetteplace of Jacksonport, Cynthia (Dale) Klapatch of Sturgeon Bay, John (Debbie) Lasee of Jacksonport; 12 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and her stillborn sister and brother.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:15 a.m. on Monday, February 4, 2013, at Stella Maris Parish-Jacksonport Location with Rev. Anthony Birdsall as celebrant.

Friends may call from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay. There will be a parish wake service at 4:00 p.m. (Sunday) at the funeral home followed by the praying of the Rosary. Visitation will continue at the funeral home on Monday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of closing prayers at 10:30 a.m. followed by the procession to church. Entombment will be made at St. Joseph Cemetery Mausoleum.
