    Died:
    • LeRoy Thielke, a longtime resident of Saukville, passed on to eternal life on Sunday evening, November 1, 2015 at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton. He was 89 years old. LeRoy was born November 16, 1925 in Chicago, IL, the son of Arthur and Madora (nee Last) Thielke. After high school, he proudly served his country in the United States Army. He was united in marriage with Marjorie DeBroux on August 28, 1948 at St. Mary's Church in Port Washington by Father Hildebrand. Marjorie preceded him in death in February of 2015.

      When LeRoy retired, he was working at Falk Corporation as a tool and die maker. He was resourceful and about to fix just about anything. LeRoy was a member of the Saukville American Legion Post #470, where he had previously served as a Post Commander.

      While they were courting, Marge and LeRoy loved to dance on roller skates. They later volunteered to be directors for the Immaculate Conception roller skating rink for about 6 years. They received a Saukville Sport's Day Award for their many years of service to youth of the community.

      LeRoy's grandchildren remember the family cottage on Pike Lake, affectionately called 'grandma's lake'. Fishing there with grandma and grandpa was a nightly pastime.

      LeRoy is survived by his children: Sharon (John) Zalewski of Saukville and Steve (Donna) of Reeseville. He is further survived by 6 grandchildren: Eric (Jaime) of Port Washington , Joel (Ali) of Mequon, Dawn (Carl) Kopacz of VT, Christine Thielke of Port Washington, Ryan Thielke of Waukesha, and Brian (Darcy) of Cedarburg, great grandchildren: Aaron, Adam, Aerissa, Aidan, Samuel, Xander and Cecilia, sister Eleanore Werner of Port Washington, Kenneth Thielke of Ashland, KY, brother-in-law Jerry DeBroux and sister-in-law Arla DeBroux, both of Port Washington, other relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his brother Eugene Thielke

      A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, November 9, 2015 at 6PM at Eernisse Funeral Home, 1600 W. Grand Ave. in Port Washington. Deacon Tom Surges will officiate. Visitation will be held prior to the service at the funeral home on Monday from 4-6PM. He will be laid to rest beside Marge in St. Mary's Cemetery in Saukville. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Immaculate Conception or the Saukville Food Pantry.

      The Eernisse Funeral Home, Port Washington is honored to serve the family.
