Grafton native Gustav C. Blank III took up woodworking after retirement, and he became such a fine craftsman that he created pieces that are integral to his church, St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jackson.
    Among the pieces he made were the church’s main cross, pulpit, communion rails and baptismal font, his daughter Judy Henrichs said.
    “He was very proud of that,” she said. “Everytime we go in there and see that, it’s kind of neat.”
    Mr. Blank was self-taught, and he created many “masterpieces” from wood, his family said — everything from furniture to picture frames and jewelry boxes.
    “Anything we would ask for, he would make,” his daughter said. “You should see some of his work. It’s just unreal.”
    Mr. Blank, who lived in Jackson, died of a heart attack Saturday, Sept. 16, at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton. He was 83.
    Mr. Blank was born on Dec. 13, 1933, to Gustav and Bertha Wilke Blank.
    He graduated from Port Washington High School, where he met Marlene Egerer. The two married on July 12, 1956, in Waukegan, Ill.
    Mr. Blank served as a mechanic in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.
    When he returned to the States, he worked as a diesel truck mechanic. He owned Blank’s Truck Repair in Grafton until his retirement in 1998.
    In his retirement, Mr. Blank not only took up woodworking, he also indulged his hobby of fishing, making many fishing trips to the Mississippi River.
    Mr. Blank also enjoyed traveling throughout the U.S. with his wife in their RV.
    “He was a loving, caring and hard-working man — he always had to be doing something,” his daughter said. “He loved his family. He was very spiritual.
    “He was a good guy who loved life.”
    Mr. Blank is survived by his wife Marlene of Jackson; sons Jeffrey (Bonnie) of Gleason, Jack of Mayville and John of Saukville; daughter Judy (Steve) Henrichs of Jackson; daughter-in-law Gina Blank; grandchildren Rim (Jennifer), Joe, Christopher (Lindsay), Mathew (Jessica), Tracy (Aaron), Lindsey (Jack), Emily, Holden, Holly, Jordan and Jarred; and eight great-grandchildren.
    He is further survived by his sister-in-law Sally Jentges.
    Mr. Blank was preceded in death by his son James; parents Gustav and Bertha, twin sisters Margaret Straub and Marion Radke, in-laws Henry and Anna Egerer and brothers-in-law Ken Straub and Walter Radke.
    A funeral service for Mr. Blank will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jackson. The Rev. Paul Mittermaier will officiate.
    Military honors will follow the service.
    Visitation will be at the church from 1 p.m. Sunday until the service.
    Mr. Blank’s body will be buried in a casket he crafted at St. John’s Church Cemetery in the Town of Grafton on Monday, Sept. 25.
    Memorials to St. John’s Lutheran Church are suggested.
    Funeral arrangements are being handled through Mueller Funeral Home, Cedarburg.

Barbara L. Schwartz, a retired longtime paraprofessional who worked with students in the Port Washington-Saukville School District’s special education program for 23 years, died Wednesday, Sept. 13, at Sharon S. Richardson Hospice in Sheboygan Falls. She was 68.
    Mrs. Schwartz, a Cedar Grove resident, died of leukemia, her husband Gereld said.
    Although her job was challenging, she was passionate about helping and advocating for children with special needs, her husband said.
    “She absolutely loved her job,” Mr. Schwartz said. “She took care of those children like they were her own.”
    Although she battled cancer for years, Mrs. Schwartz didn’t let the disease come between her and her students, her husband said.
    “She beat cancer three times,” he said. “She was a very strong woman.”
    Mrs. Schwartz worked briefly at Port Washington High School but spent most of her career in the district at Thomas Jefferson Middle School. She retired in 2016.
    “She missed it so much,” her husband said. “There were times when she almost cried because she couldn’t be with her students any more.”
    Mrs. Schwartz was born in Detroit on Jan. 8, 1949, the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Schneider Addy.
    The family moved to Milwaukee when she was a child, and Mrs. Schwartz graduated from Nicolet High School in Glendale.
    On March 11, 1986, she married Gereld Schwartz of Mercer in Hurley.
    A few years later, the couple moved to Port Washington. They later moved to Cedar Grove.
    In addition to her husband Gereld, Mrs. Schwartz is survived by her siblings Alice (Mike) Hamilton of Joplin, Mo., Mary (Elmer) Neuens of Brookfield, Terry Addy of Stanley and Tom (Brenda) Addy of Cascade; and brother-in-law Rick Pagel of Milwaukee.
    She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Jo-Ann Pagel.
    A celebration of Mrs. Schwartz’s life will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, at First Reformed Church in Cedar Grove.
    Cremation has taken place and her remains will be interred in Mercer Cemetery.
