Pearl Neuville

Born in Town of Union, Wisconsin on Nov 28, 1924

Died on Aug 09, 2017 and resided in Green Bay, Wisconsin

Pearl M. Neuville, 92, Green Bay resident, died Wednesday morning, August 9, 2017, at a local care facility. She was born November 28, 1924 in the Town of Union to the late Jules and Ida (Granius) Fabry.  She excelled academically. Following high school graduation, she ventured to California with friends for a two-week vacation.  This vacation became a six month stay during which she found employment to support the war effort.  Dedicated to her family from a very young age, she put her own dreams and aspirations on hold, dutifully returning home to work on the family farm. She was very proud of her family homestead and farm, located at the edge of Door County.

Pearl married Bernard Neuville on July 8, 1950, at St. Francis Church in Duvall, WI and celebrated 65 years of marriage before his death on August 8, 2015. Our family was able to celebrate milestone anniversaries with our parents at 40, 45, 50, + years—some were surprises and some were planned.  Her family loved her home-cooked meals-especially Mom’s lasagna, banana cream torte, and banana bread.

She was a lifelong enthusiastic Packer fan. In her later years, she also followed the Brewers.  Pearl was topical on current events, always up on the news both locally and nationally.  She loved Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, and could have competed herself on those shows.  Pearl loved to shop with her friends, especially with her sister Grace—so many trips to Door County.  And that love of Door County was passed on to her family.   

Pearl was a longtime member of St. Philip the Apostle Parish. She was very active in all aspects of parish life and a member of the Altar Society. She loved the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, “The Chapel”, which has become a cherished place of reflection for her children and grandchildren.  Annual pilgrimages on August 15th-- Dad’s birthday—were made to celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Get-togethers with friends afterwards would include favorite Belgian food and hours of card playing.   

 She is survived by her four children: Marcia (Dale) Weiland, Dubuque, IA; Dave (Jan) Neuville; Jeff (Sue) Neuville and Lisa (Jeff) Klima, all of Green Bay; nine grandchildren: Greg and Aaron Weiland; Melissa (Eric) Peters and Kristy (Brian) Shannon; Adam (April) Neuville and Jonathan Neuville; Patrick (Dana), Lindsay and Lauren Klima; eight great grandchildren: Taylor, Tristan, Trey, Ella, Tessa, Emersen, Vivian and Haley; two sisters-in-law: Patsy (Bill) Kincaide, Baltimore, MD and Gloria (Dick) Pagel, Egg Harbor; nieces and nephews.

 She was preceded in death by a grandson, Justin Klima; her brother, Ray (Kay) Fabry and her sister, Grace (Charles) LeCaptain.
