Kermit Arden Miske
Nov. 4, 1926 — Feb 27, 2019
Kermit Arden Miske, age 92, of Adell was welcomed into his heavenly home
on Wednesday morning, Feb. 27, 2019.
He was born Nov. 4, 1926, to Arno and Marie (Schultz) Miske on the
family homestead near Beechwood.
Kermit attended Independence School, Town of Scott German School, and
Kewaskum High School, trudging uphill the entire way through rain, sleet
He met the love of his life, Delores VerGowe, and they married on May
14, 1949, at Immanuel Lutheran, Town of Scott. Together they began
raising their family of nine children on their beloved family dairy farm
where they instilled the value of hard work and importance of faith and
family. Kermit also drove milk truck for many years with Slinger
Creamery, often with one of his children happily tagging along. Kermit
and Delores enjoyed many adventures with their travel buddies, Ralph and
Verna Hausner. He continued to enjoy travel later in life with his
longtime special friend, Helen Hueppchen. His most memorable trips
included a tour of Europe, the Panama Canal, South Dakota, and Alaska.
While Kermit loved to travel the globe, he was just as content riding
down the back roads of Sheboygan County admiring farm fields and
wildlife, catching up with his neighbors, and stopping at Waldo Café for
a bite to eat and some conversation.
Please honor Kermit’s memory by enjoying an ice cream cone, sipping a
cup of coffee, collecting toy tractors, partaking in a good fish fry,
reading the newspaper, dressing up for church, cherishing a family
gathering, and traveling with those you love.
