Obituary for Florence M. Fenske

Florence M. Fenske, 93, Oshkosh, passed away with her loving daughters by her side, Friday, March 30, 2018 at Ascension Mercy Hospital. She was born July 28, 1924, in Clintonville, the daughter of Joseph and Selma (Witt) Patrikus. Florence married Edmund Erickson in 1946, and he preceded her in death in 1979. In 1983, she married Herman Fenske, and he preceded her in death in 2000.

Florence was employed with Universal Foundry as a secretary for many years, where co-workers affectionately called her Flossie. After the Foundry shut down in 1984, she worked seasonally for Miles Kimball and Fernau’s Greenhouse to stay busy. She was a life long member of Most Blessed Sacrament Church. Florence had a great sense of humor and was rarely in a bad mood. She enjoyed traveling, camping, and dancing polkas in her younger years, sewing, gardening, baking, reading, and crafting. She always had a project to work on!

Florence is survived by her daughters Joan Erickson and Julie Erickson, both of Oshkosh; a brother, Jerry (Sue) Patrikus, Shawano; sisters-in-law: Betty Patrikus, Green Bay, and Kay Patrikus, Appleton; nieces, nephews, other relatives and special friends, including a nephew, Donnie Williams, who was Florence’s Mr. Fix-it man.

She was also preceded in death by her parents; brothers: Roger, Robert, Reuben (Virginia), and Donald; sisters-in-law: Adeline (George) Williams and Rosella (Ken) McLean; and a brother-in-law, Ray (Erna) Erickson.

Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at the Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home-Westside, 100 Lake Pointe Drive, Oshkosh, with Fr. Jerry Pastors officiating. Visitation will be at the funeral home from 1:30 p.m. Wednesday until the time of the service.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Ascension Mercy Hospital, second floor, for the care that was provided to their mother during her time there.
