He was born on November 12, 1930, in the City of Oshkosh, the son of Wayne Shew Sr and Lucinda (Fritz) Shew. Wayne joined the Army Air Corp (Engineer Battalion) in 1946, stationed in the Aleutian Islands and Alaska. After returning home from the service, he was employed at Bevington Nash, where he met the love of his life, Bernice M. Kallas of Eureka, WI. They were married on June 16, 1951. They had four children, Diane, Debbie, Steve and Ann. He was a dedicated father and husband. Wayne felt the most important job he had was taking care of his family, which he did with much love. He taught his children and grandchildren by example the importance of family, hard work, how to love, how to have fun as well as working thru hard times and somehow made it look easy. Wayne was indentured as a plumber apprentice on January 2, 1952 and received his journeyman plumber’s license on May 17, 1956. He was a proud member of the Plumber’s and Steam^tter Local 400 for 63 years. Wayne enjoyed football; he played football while in the Army and on his return he played for the Oshkosh Comets. He was an active member of Sacred Heart Parish and contributed many hours to the church picnics, ushers club and bingo. He was a founding member of the Ambassador��s Club at Lourdes High School where he ran many bingo games and sold concessions out of his van to raise money for the school. His hobbies included gardening, woodworking, he was the ^xit man for family and friends, ushering at the Packer games, listening to the Brewer games and working security at EAA. He looked forward to his yearly ^shing trips in Canada and deer hunting in Northern Wisconsin. Wayne could always put a smile on your face and knew the art of teasing, having fun and living life. He enjoyed spending time with friends, either with a ^sh fry, gol^ng, meeting the guys after work for a quick beer or traveling to Las Vegas. He was also the proud owner of the only station wagon in our neighborhood with a bood light mounted to the dash, much to his daughters chagrin. After retirement, Wayne and Bernice became snow birds and enjoyed traveling to Florida and a trip or two to Branson. Wayne is loved and will be missed by his children, Diane Luther of Oshkosh, her children, Stacy (Keith) Frey and their children, Madeline and Olivia, Matt Luther and Molly Luther; Debbie (Bryon) Huebner of Omro, their children, Jennifer Keenan, Betsy (Lenny) Young and their children, Ethan and Abby, and Stephanie Keenan; Steven (Patti) Shew of Oshkosh and their son, Alex Shew; Ann (Dan) Pistohl of Oshkosh and their sons, Evan (Taylor) Pistohl and Connor Pistohl; his sister, Shirley (Wally) Pettit of Oshkosh and nephews, Wayne Pettit and Paul Pettit; sister-in-law, Barbara Shew of Oshkosh and nephew, Tim Shew, nieces, Kathy Gapp and Sara Boegh.

Welch, Sister Kathryn OBITUARIES O BITUARIES O BITUARIES Deml, Robert J. “Bob”, 73, Chilton, died June 4, Weiting Family Funeral Home Death Notices lin opposed Walker’s proposed cuts to public schools and the UW System. “Quite a bit of the criticism of the budget was coming from Republican l awmakers as opposed to j ust Democrats,” Frankl in said. “This year, he has n ot been a visible, prominent spokesman for his proposed cuts to K-12.” In fact, after public opposition to the education cut became clear and lawmakers publicly opposed it, Walker asked lawmakers to figure out how to restore it, Franklin said, w hich was a departure f rom Walker’s campaign- style advocacy for his budgets in the past. Walker spokeswoman Laurel Patrick disputed the notion Walker’s involvement in the budgeting process is not as robust as before. “ As he has always done, Gov. Walker continues to meet and talk regularly with legislative leadership of both parties, as well as legislators of both parties, to discuss issues important to Wisconsin, as well as the budget,” she said in an email. “Gov. Walker is also in regular contact with executive staff, regardless of his location.” R ep. Dale Kooyenga, R -Brookfield, said Walker h as been effective and inv olved in the state budget- i ng process, pointing to his involvement in reaching an agreement on a plan to build a new arena for the Milwaukee Bucks, which was announced last week. “I particularly don’t feel like there’s something I can’t get done be- c ause the governor is eng aged in a presidential r ace,” he said. W alker is not officially acandidate, but has said he would make his intentions known when lawmakers finish writing a 2015-17 budget. With the arena deal finished, the remaining major issue for the Legislature’s Joint Finance Comm ittee is how to pay for r oad projects. The committee has not scheduled a meeting for this week, and it’s unclear how close lawmakers are to an agreement on roads. When the committee completes its work, the budget will go to the full A ssembly and Senate, and then to Walker, who wields a powerful veto. Proposals rejected Lawmakers rejected Walker’s proposals to suspend land purchases under the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, make cuts and changes to SeniorCare, eliminate a state board that oversees for-profit colleges, make t he Department of Natu- r al Resources Board advi- s ory, and merge state a gencies. T hey also used Walker’s budget as a starting point to expand his proposal to lift caps on school vouchers and to greatly expand the opportunity to open independent charter schools. “I think it is clear that public opinion and legisla- t or opinion quickly turned a gainst his K-12 budget c ut, but (lawmakers) still f ound approaches for voucher expansion and charter expansion,” said Franklin. Walker proposed lifting the cap on the number of school vouchers available in the statewide program in a way that would likely result in each v oucher being worth t housands less than they do today and come from state aid for school districts. Republicans modified that plan to keep the ex- p ansion, and the funding m echanism, but also to sec ure a payment to private schools that isn’t less than current levels. Lawmakers also scrapped Walker’s proposal to create a statewide charter school authorizing board to make way for aslate of new authorizing bodies including the UW S ystem. Backing Walker Still, the committee approved a number of proposals in Walker’s budget. Those approvals include drug testing recipients of some public benefits; ending tax-fund subsidies for state parks; eliminating jobs in the Department of Natural Res ources; and a rejection of e xpanding Medicaid with $345 million in federal funding.
