     Carl A. Wulff of Port Washington had a unique skill.
    While working in air traffic control for the U.S. Army in the 1950s at Fort Bliss, Texas, he wrote data on a large sheet of glass that pilots would read from the opposite side.
    That means Mr. Wulff had to write backward.
    “He was quite proud of that,” his brother Bill said.
    Mr. Wulff, 82, died at Harbor Club in Port Washington on Tuesday, Oct. 31, of natural causes.
    He was born on Sept. 22, 1935, to Carl and Eveline Hovener Wulff in Milwaukee. The family moved to Grafton when he was an infant, and Mr. Wulff graduated from Grafton High School before joining the Army.
    After serving his country, Mr. Wulff moved back to Grafton and worked for many years as a custodian for the Grafton School District. He developed nicknames for many students and enjoyed teasing them in passing.
    “And the kids liked him, too. He was a typical old-time janitor,” his brother said.
    Following his retirement, Mr. Wulff moved to the Harbor Club in Port Washington and said, “This is my home now and the workers here are my family.” He enjoyed interacting with the staff.
    Mr. Wulff liked snowmobiling and deer hunting on his acre of land in the Town of Grafton he called “Da Gynt.” He had a mount of a 10-point buck in his room at Harbor Club.
    He collected antique clocks, filling a room with them. Many of his treasures  came from auctions.
    “He and my mother would go. She would get a line on one and he would tell him, ‘Carl, you’ve got to have this one,’” his brother said.
    Mr. Wulff was a member of the Ozaukee Investment Club, which researched companies and collectively invested in them.
His brother said he had an easygoing personality.
    “He liked to tease people a lot. It was just fun stuff, nothing vicious,” he said. “He’d have separate techniques for different people.”
    Mr. Wulff is survived by his sister Lorna May (Donald) Huebner of Madison and brothers Bill (Lorna) of Cedar Grove, Kurt (Louise) of Needham, Mass., and Keith (Judith) of La Grange, Ky.
    A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, at Eernisse Funeral Home in Port Washington. The Rev. Kelly Nieman-Anderson will preside.
    Visitation will be at the funeral home from 1 p.m. until the service.
    Burial will be at Lakefield Cemetery in the Town of Grafton.

     Mary M. Poull lived her life to the fullest.
    “The woman was amazing. I don’t think she missed anything,” her daughter-in-law Judy Poull said. “She had a lot of interests and she did everything.
    “If you called her up and asked her to go shopping or bowling, she’d be ready in 15 minutes. She never said no. She was a good sport, always up for anything.”
    Mrs. Poull bowled until she was 89, stopping only because she feared falling, her daughter-in-law said, and lived in the house she and her late husband Ted built until her death Saturday, Oct. 28, at Lawlis Family Hospice in Mequon.
    Mrs. Poull came down with pneumonia shortly before her death, and doctors then discovered a tumor in her lung, her daughter-in-law said.
    Born in Port Washington on Sept. 16, 1922, Mrs. Poull was the last surviving sibling of nine children born to John and Mary Weyker.
    She worked at a canning factory and then at the Wisconsin Chair Co. in Port Washington.
    After Ted A. Poull returned from military service during World War II, the couple married on May 10, 1947, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Port.
    The couple built a home in the Knellsville area of the Town of Port Washington, where they raised their three sons and later cared for two young grandchildren and Mrs. Poull’s aging mother.
    Family was Mrs. Poull’s life.
    She was an extremely organized and talented homemaker, her family said, noting she canned vegetables form her garden and fruit from her orchard, made kuchen every Saturday morning and quilted.
    Her household chores were done on specific days of the week with no excuses, her family said — a work ethic she obtained from her German-Luxembourg heritage.
    She was a good cook who made everything from scratch and used the good china and silver at holidays and special meals.
    Mrs. Poull wasn’t just a homemaker, she literally helped build her home and those of her sons.
    “She did interior work, all the detail work,” her daughter-in-law said. “She stained and painted, filled nail holes.”
    It was something she did all her life, her daughter-in-law said, noting that she went to visit Mrs. Poull one night  “there she was on her hands and knees, installing baseboards. She was 79.”
    Mrs. Poull was a good sport and fun to be with, her family said. If you played sheepshead against her, you could expect to lose, as many of her fellow card players at the Grafton and Port Washington senior centers learned. She played the card game at the centers on Tuesday and Thursdays until she was 94.
    She also enjoyed bingo and traveling. Her husband was active in woodworking associations and the couple traveled around the country displaying his art.
    She also enjoyed bird watching, going out to eat, taking car rides to her old stomping grounds and sports, having participated in baseball in her younger years. She was an avid sports fan who particularly enjoyed following the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers.
    She was interested in everything and followed the news intensely, her family said, noting she was a great conversationalist.
    “She was just a jolly good person,” her daughter-in-law said. “She was always happy. She had endless energy and a wonderful spirit.”
    Mrs. Poull is survived by her sons Ted P. (Judy) of the Town of Saukville and Mark “Chico” (Karen) and Robert (Nancy), both of the Town of Port Washington and grandchildren Jacob (Candie) and Emilee Rose Poull.
    She was preceded in death by her husband Ted; brothers Elroy, Edgar, Gregor, Lawrence, John and Alvin; and sisters Anna Kultgen and Helen Large.
    A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at St. John XXIII Catholic Parish, St. Peter of Alcantara Church, in Port Washington. Father Patrick Wendt will officiate.
    Visitation will be Friday from 3 p.m. until the service.
    A light lunch will be served following the Mass.
    Interment will be at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Port Washington.
    Memorials to St. John XXIII Catholic Parish, St. Peter of Alcantara Church, and Lawlis Family Hospice are suggested.

Jan Krecklow was just as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. She had a great sense of humor and would laugh until tears came to her eyes. Strong willed, but modest and quiet. She, along with her two sisters, grew up on a resort her parents owned in northern Wisconsin. Here she acquired her great love of plants and nature, as well as her great love of books over the long winters.
Janet Judith Auman was born to Melvin and Sylvia McMullen Auman  in Manitowoc on Dec. 22, 1922, and passed away in Port Washington on Saturday, Oct. 14.
Like others of her generation, she came of age during World War II. Moving to California along with one of her sisters, she first worked at a gas station pumping rationed gas. After she and her sister lost, misplaced and mixed up enough gas caps, the owner explained being “gas jockeys” was not their calling. They ended up working in a defense plant until war's end.
During this time, Jan was offered a modeling job, which she quickly dismissed. She was not interested in trading on her looks. Being modest and shy, she was never tempted by the limelight. Instead, upon war's end, she moved back to Wisconsin.
In 1947 she married the father of her four children, James Williams.
She was a great Mom, and her artistic talents were showcased by a full-length mural of Cinderella she painted on her daughter’s wall.
She divorced after 16 years of marriage and moved to Port Washington with her children in 1964. She obtained a job as a secretary with Simplicity Manufacturing, where her skills were quickly recognized and she was promoted to an executive secretarial position until her retirement.
In Port Washington, she met Lou Krecklow and married him on Dec. 26, 1971, in Momence, Ill. She remained his wife until his death and lived in their residence until her passing, in her sleep, in her home, with her children in attendance.
Jan is survived by her children Greg (Linda) Williams, Wendy (Wayne) Karasch and Steve Williams, all of Port Washington, and Joy (Tom) Loos of Cedarburg. She is further survived by seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Jan was a very charitable person who made many donations to a wide variety of causes, even doing so upon her death. She donated her body to Science Care, a national organization that utilizes the body in a variety of medical research and education projects.
There will be a private family memorial upon the return of her ashes.
She was preceded in death by her husband Lou Krecklow and sister Beverly Buretta.
