  Survivors include her children - Judith Kuse of Baraboo, Kate Clanton of Marshfield, Susan (Dean) Emmerich of Medford, Patrick (Michelle) Keefe of Apple Valley, MN, and Robert (Laurie) Keefe of Medford, sixteen grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren.
  Melva wore life well, even into her stay at Care Partners, where her kind and caring personality survived, and her world was largely a happy one for which she was grateful.
  Melva was a lifelong member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, and visitation will be held there from 9:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on Monday, August 13, 2018 with the funeral service beginning at 11:00 a.m. with Rev.

Charlotte Louise Buchanan Andreasen


 

  Charlotte Louise Buchanan Andreasen, 90, long time resident of Withee, Wisconsin, but currently of Appleton, Wisconsin passed away on Monday, July 9.

  A memorial service will be held on Thursday, July 19th at Nazareth Lutheran Church in Withee.      Visitation will be begin at 1:00 p.m. with the service at 2:00 p.m.  Burial will be at the Nazareth cemetery. 

  Charlotte was born on May 12, 1928, in rural Curtiss, to Glenn and Doris (Clifton) Buchanan.  The eldest of three children, she grew up on dairy farms near Curtiss and Withee.  She attended Frenchtown School, and belonged to the Methodist Church in Withee.

  After graduating from Withee High School in 1946, she began a two-year rural education program at Eau Claire State Teachers College.  When she completed the program in 1948, she was the envy of her classmates, because she had already been offered a teaching job with a salary of $225 per month, the highest salary of anyone in her class.  Charlotte taught grades 1-8 in rural schools for seven years, including White School, Elmwood School, Eaton Center School, and Frenchtown School.

  Charlotte and Norman Andreasen were united in marriage on June 12, 1949 at the Methodist Church in Withee.  A few years after they married, he surprised her by deciding to become a farmer.  They purchased a dairy farm in Hixon Township, where they farmed until 1980, raising four children.        Charlotte was an active member of Nazareth Lutheran Church, teaching in Vacation Bible School, singing in the choir, and participating in the church women’s organization.

  Charlotte and Norman enjoyed traveling, especially in their later years.  They spent several winters in Apache Junction, Arizona, and took the time to see not only the sights of Arizona, but also other locations along the routes that they traveled both to and from that location.  They also took trips to visit their children in Colorado, North Dakota, and Texas.  Charlotte appreciated the fact that one of their children spent time living in the northeastern part of the United States, so that one of the couple’s trips would be to that part of the country.  She celebrated her 80th birthday with a cruise to destinations in New England and northeastern Canada.

  Charlotte was devoted to her family, and especially enjoyed being a grandparent.  She is survived by four children:  Rodney Andreasen of Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Bethany Andreasen of Minot, North Dakota; Bradley Andreasen of Colorado, and Cara (Gary) Brzezinski of Oneida, Wisconsin; four grandchildren:  Tyra (Gregory) Wennesheimer of Green Bay, Wisconsin; Krista (Christopher) Kuba of Green Bay, Wisconsin; Nathan Stock Andreasen; and Joshua Andreasen; three great-grandchildren:  Aubrey and Charlotte Kuba of Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Ella Stock Andreasen; and two brothers:  Leonard Buchanan of Thorp, Wisconsin; and James Buchanan of Cadott, Wisconsin. 

  She was preceded in death in 2005 by her husband, Norman.
