Daniel A. Baker

Daniel A. Baker, 90, was called home “in the twinkling of an eye” on Friday, July 29, 2016, four months after his beloved wife, Ruth, was also called home.

Daniel was born on April 12, 1926, in Creston, Iowa, to the late Arthur and Margaret Baker. Dan came to Shawano in 1972 to help his brother, Dick Baker, run the Super Valu Grocery Store. It was there that he saw Ruth Gottschalk shopping in one of the aisles, and he asked who that beautiful lady was. He followed her to the check-out counter and started up a conversation. Shortly after, they started dating and were married on Feb. 10, 1973. They just celebrated 43 years of marriage.

Dan helped Ruth run Gottschalk’s Cleaners. Together they opened up The Laundry Basket and were in the business for over 25 years. Upon retiring from The Laundry Basket, Dan worked at different businesses cleaning, delivering the Shopper’s Guide and delivering The Shawano Leader.

Ethel T. Yokes

Ethel T. “Neomi” Yokes (nee Owen), of Grafton, went home to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Aug. 7, 2016, at the age of 86. Ethel, born on May 25, 1930, in Shawano, was the 15th of 17 children of Elmer and Lela (nee Meverden) Owen. Times were not easy for a family of that size during the Depression years, so her nine older brothers, five older sisters and two younger sisters learned the value of hard work and cooperation at an early age.

Gerald A. Giessel

As of Aug. 2, 2016, our family is saying “good-bye” (for now) to this brother of ours. Gerald A. Giessel, 79, the fourth of eight children, was born on Sept. 21, 1936, in the town of Seneca, Shawano County, to the late August and Artie (Sullivan) Giessel and passed away in Florida, where he had made his home for many years.

Pictured with his wife Carol (Paulley) in January 1960, we doubt he had ever been happier! (When Carol passed away in July 1997, he could not have been more sad!)
