Bernice M. Hug, 88


Bernice M. Hug (nee Goeller), 88, of Allenton died Saturday, March 1, 2014, at the Kettle Moraine Gardens in Kewaskum. She was born April 19, 1925, in the town of Addison to the late Nicolas and Mary (nee Schellinger) Goeller and married Robert Hug on June 26, 1948, at St. Lawrence Catholic Church. Bob preceded her in death on Jan. 14, 1972.

Bernice worked at Amity Leather, the Shoe Factory in Hartford for 10 years, the West Bend Company for five years but was well known for working as a cook at the Hill Restaurant for 33 years. Afterward she also cooked at the Brost Diner in Allenton and did demos for the Prescott food stores.

She loved to crochet and knit and was a voracious reader. She was a member of the Young at Heart Club at Resurrection Catholic Church where she helped crochet many baby blankets and afghans that were donated to those in need. After she became a resident of Kettle Moraine Gardens she continued to crochet and would donate the lap quilts to various nursing homes. She enjoyed taking bus trips and going to the casino.

Above all else the most important thing to Bernice was her love for her family.

Bernice is survived by Debi (Bill) Hays; four grandchildren: Eric (fiancÚ Tina) Hug, Jody (Dan) Luoma, Lisa (Matt) Kennedy and Trish Hug; six great-grandchildren: Jordan, Larissa, Electra, Chloe, Trevor and Carter; and her son David (Sue) Hug. She is further survived by her brother Sylvester Goeller, her special friend Delores Brost, her guardian angel Dorothy Langenecker, and brothers in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband Bob Hug, her parents Nicolas and Mary Goeller and her sisterin- law Eileen Goeller.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at noon at Resurrection Catholic Church in Allenton with the Rev. Richard Stoffel presiding. Burial will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery.
