Paul William Flansburgh passed away peacefully on January 3, 2023. Paul lived a full life of family, service, and love. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend, and neighbor. He was born to Robert and Anna (Heller) Flansburgh on April 21, 1929, Paul graduated from Wauzeka High School in 1947. After graduation Paul began working with his father on the family dairy farm, eventually taking it over and where he and Matilda remained until retirement. Paul was introduced to the love of his life at a country dance by his brother, LeRoy. After just six short months of dating, he married Matilda Laufenberg on October 11, 1960, at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Ashton, WI. Their devotion to each other was unwavering. During their 62 years of marriage their celebrations were countless.
Paul and Matilda raised four children together. Alan (Kathy) of Prairie du Chien Wisconsin, Carol (Glen) Fogerty, Scottsdale Arizona, Karen (Edd Santos) Plendl, Libertyville Illinois, and Connie (Paul) Koecke, Franklin Tennessee. They were blessed with nine grandchildren and one great grandson. Paul loved everything about farming and the outdoors. Whenever he had the opportunity, he would share stories about growing up walking in the woods and fields and his adventures of fishing and hunting with his friends. He took great pride in his dairy farm where he and his family earned numerous awards. He enjoyed hosting and volunteering at the County Dairy Breakfast and the County Fair. Paul and Matilda’s faith was very important to them. They were members of Holy Family Parish, the Catholic Knights, Farm Bureau, American Milk Producers Inc. and several other clubs and organizations throughout their lifetime. When Paul’s son Alan took over the farm, he and Matilda bought land nearby and built their retirement home. They enjoyed gardening, playing cards, traveling, and spending time together with family and friends.
Paul was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Matilda, his parents, Robert, and Anna, three sisters Elizabeth, Patricia, and Caroline and brothers Robert and LeRoy. We wish to express our gratitude for the wonderful nurses and staff at Prairie Maison, St. Croix hospice and Crossing Rivers hospital for their care and kindness. And to all his friends and loved ones for your many prayers, visits, and kindness.
