Franklin “Frank” A. Mueller
Franklin “Frank” A. Mueller, 87, of Lomira entered Eternal Life on Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021.
He was born on April 8, 1934, to Jerome and Loretta (nee Schmidt) Mueller in the Town of Addison. Frank attended Nenno Schools.
Early on, Frank realized his life’s passion and started working on the family farm as a young boy. As he grew up, he was drafted and honorably served in the United States Army, from September 1956 until July 1958.
Shortly after his return home, he was united in marriage to his beloved, Joyce Roethle, on May 2, 1959.
Frank and Joyce accomplished his lifelong goal of owning his farm and purchased their farmstead in 1967, located just outside of Lomira. He spent 55 years passionately farming, taking care of the cows, watching the crops grow, and collecting Minneapolis Moline tractors. Throughout those years, he was able to farm with his son and grandsons, who continue to farm it today.
During his retirement, he could still be found working in the shop or driving a tractor around the farm. Nothing sparked a twinkle in his eye more than seeing his great-grandkids on the farm. After church on Sundays, he enjoyed a warm meal at Ponderosa in Hartford. Frank especially enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Those Frank leaves behind to cherish his memory and carry on his farming legacy include his son, Mark (Tina) Mueller; four grandchildren, Scott (Natasha) Mueller, Lee (Emma) Mueller, Brittany (Michael) Merk, and Kelly Mueller; seven great-grandchildren, Vaeda and Jaxon Mueller, Ivy and Oliver Mueller, Dekker and Millie Merk, and Aiden Mueller; a sister, Mary (Vern) Kreuser; three brothers, Jerome (Joanne) Mueller, Walter (Carole) Mueller, and Carroll (Janice) Mueller; many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce Mueller; and his brother, Harold (Diane) Mueller.
A Funeral Service in remembrance of Frank will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 1 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 699 Milwaukee St., Lomira.
The family will greet relatives and friends at the church on Saturday from 11 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.
