Milfred Jaeger

Milfred Jaeger, 85, of Merrill, formerly town of Pine River, Lincoln County, died Tuesday, May 5, 2009, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, Pallative Care.

Milfred was born June 16, 1923, in the town of Pine River, Lincoln County, the son of the late Albert and Hulda (Delf) Jaeger. He married Dorothy Nass-Mueller on May 7, 1977, at St. Peter's Church, Hamburg.

He worked at Semling-Menke 37 years, and also was a custodian at several offices in Merrill. Milfred and Dorothy were both custodians at Faith Lutheran Church, town of Maine, for 26 years.

Milfred enjoyed doing carpentry work and playing cards with several card clubs. He loved his John Deere tractor and doing yard work outside. He enjoyed listening to polka music, dancing, hunting and fishing. He also loved spending time with his family. Milfred's faith was very important to him. When he was a custodian at church, sometimes you would find him just sitting and sharing stories with Pastor Hoogland.
