Baierl, Monica T. (4 APR 1940 – 2 JAN 2015)

Monica T. Baierl, 74, Marshfield, died peacefully on Friday, Jan. 2, 2015, at Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield. A Mass of Christian Burial was held at 11 a.m., on Wednesday, Jan. 7, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Marshfield. Rev. James Logan officiated. Burial was in Gate of Heaven Cemetery.

Monica Theresa Kaiser was born on April 4, 1940, in Stratford, to Matthias and Thecla (nee Wagner) Kaiser. She attended St. Joseph’s Catholic Elementary School in Stratford and graduated from Stratford High School. She then attended St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Marshfield and graduated with her nursing degree in 1961. She married Richard W. "Rosie" Baierl on June 16, 1962, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Stratford. Monica worked two years in the birth center at St. Joseph’s Hospital. She then took a nursing position at the Marshfield Care Center and worked there for 28 years, retiring in 1994 with her last position being the assistant director of nursing. Her home away from home was the cabin on Mead Lake, enjoying pontoon rides, campfires, and bluegill and crappie fishing. She was an avid reader and enjoyed crocheting, baking, counted cross stitch and crossword puzzles. If she wasn’t home or at the cabin she and the love of her life, Rosie, were at every sporting event her grandkids were playing in for the Columbus Catholic Dons. She loved watching them excel at football, soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country, track and softball. She was also the treasurer for the Christian Mothers at Sacred Heart parish for four years. She was also a devoted New York Yankees, Packer and Badger fan.

Monica is survived by her husband, Richard; two sons, Joe (Nancy) Baierl, Marshfield, and Alan (Laurie) Baierl, Marshfield; five grandchildren, Alex, Abby, Annie, Kendra and Addison Baierl; her siblings, Sister Mae Kaiser, FSPA, LaCrosse, Mildred (Anthony) Eilers, Marshfield, Carol (Gary) Watson, Corvallis, Ore., Joseph (Catherine) Kaiser, Stratford, Mark (Agnes) Kaiser, Stratford, Edward (Delphine) Kaiser, Appleton, and Paul (Joan) Kaiser, Great Falls, Mont.; four sisters-in-law, Rosalie Baierl, Rothschild, Janice Breseman, Chili, Marion (Don) Brunette, Freeport, Ill., and Delores (Don) Moen, Sauk City; and two brothers-in-law, Jerry Baierl, Marshfield, and Bernie (Judy) Baierl, Kenosha.

Leonard G. Kaiser; two brothers-in-law, Harvey Breseman and Art Baierl; and a sister-in-law, Joan Baierl.
