Obituary: Sherry Ann Poehler

Feb. 20, 1946 – March 17, 2020

Sherry Ann Poehler, 74, of Sturgeon Bay died at Aurora BayCare Medical Center. She was born in Green Bay to Clifford and Arlene (Kaster) Stauber. 

On Feb. 5, 1966, she married Frank E. Poehler at Holy Name of Mary Church in Maplewood. He died Nov. 14, 1998.

Sherry and her husband owned and operated an orchard and market on Egg Harbor Road in Sturgeon Bay for many years. She loved dancing, singing and working in her flower gardens. She was a very creative and “crafty” person who was very social and always saw the good in everyone. 

Above all, Sherry treasured the time she spent with family and felt very blessed to have watched her grandchildren grow into adulthood. She was full of life and never left a moment wasted. Her strong faith in God sustained her during all the trials in her life. Sherry is now at peace and enjoying a heavenly reunion with her husband and other relatives.

Survivors include her two children, Kim (Ken) Bosman and Kirk Poehler; five grandchildren, Matthew, Michael, Joseph, Alyse and David; three brothers, Pete (Ann) Stauber, John (Hilary) Stauber, and Jim Stauber; one sister, Pat John and her significant other, Jim; in-laws, Karen Sinkler, Kathy and Dale Rass, Linda and Butch Georgeson and John Poehler; nieces; nephews; and godchildren. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, granddaughter Caitlan, sister Joan Stauber and brother-in-law Dale Sinkler.

A visitation and memorial mass will be conducted later. 

Special thanks to the staffs of Aurora Medical Center and Aurora at Home Hospice for the wonderful care and loving support. Forbes Funeral Home and Cremations is in charge of arrangements.
