Peter B. Hans
January 25, 1958 – November 20, 2020
Sussex – Found peace surrounded by family and friends on November 20, 2020 at the age of 62. Loving and devoted husband of Kathleen (Ubert) Hans for 23 years of marriage, loving father of Jennifer and Kayla, devoted grandfather of Elyse, William, Sydney, and Ava, adored foster parent to 20 children, and an uncle to multiple cherished nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by his parents Daniel and Margaret (nee Ward) Hans, also his brother Gregory (Mary Jo) Hans. Survived by brothers Daniel Hans, sisters Deborah Hans and Mary Hans. Further survived by brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and friends.
He was born in Fort Atkinson, grew up in Jefferson, graduated from University of Whitewater, and served in the Marine Corps Reserves. Hans worked 30 years for the Waukesha County Human Resources Department.
His greatest love has always been his family, whom he entertained with morning trumpet calls, bird whistles, Chef Pierre meals, and comments to make you laugh. He was an avid sports fan, who entertained the group with silly activities, adding a humorous twist to the traditional golf game, easing the tension of a Packer game, or whistling a tune. He enjoyed the outdoors spending time with family in the peaceful North Woods or wandering the streets of Door county with the love of his life.
Peter lost his battle to Alzheimer’s. His love for music ending with his last breath as family sang a song, Angels Among Us. Now the sun has set and he will rest peacefully.
Dedicated, devoted, loving wife Kathy is grateful for the care and comfort that Vitas Hospice provided. Also appreciated are the endless hours that neighbors, family, and cousins spent with him over the years. Their support in this journey will never be forgotten. Thank you.
Visitation will be held at St. James Catholic Church in Menomonee Falls (W220N6588 Town Line Rd.) on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 10am until Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30am. In Lieu of flowers, memorials to the Alzheimer’s Association appreciated.
(nee Muskatevc) Was peacefully called home Sunday, November 1st, 2020, All Saints Day. Surrounded by her loving family throughout the weekend, Ann was freed from her 16 year battle with Parkinson’s Disease as sunlight passed through the window of her bedroom to light her pathway to the kingdom.
Ann was born on April 9th, 1947 to Leo and Anna (Tesovnik) Muskatevc in Milwaukee, WI. She graduated from Divine Savior and obtained an associate’s degree from Wisconsin Career Academy as a Medical Technician. Ann married Bernard Knapp on May 11, 1968. She began her lifelong career in 1973 as a dedicated mother to Jennifer (Lawrence Hanlon) and Brian (Juliette Crane) and was promoted in 2006 to grandmother of Colman and Leo. A fierce advocate, champion, and cheerleader, Ann made sure that family and friends were always remembered and cared for in the best way possible. She enjoyed sewing, baking, shopping, camping, and spending time with family.
Ann is survived by her sister Kathy (Paul) Kelley, and brothers Mark (Marsha) Muskatevc and Thomas (Ellen) Muskatevc, as well as her nieces and nephews Christopher, Lee, Jacquelyn, Christine, Julie, Laura, Lisa, Steven, and Andrew. She is preceded in death by her twin brother Leo, her brother John (Patty) Muskatevc, and her nephew Eric.
Due to COVID -19 restrictions, a private service will be held with Ann’s immediate family. In lieu of a public service, we ask that you take a moment and remember Ann with a loving prayer for peace in our world every time you are in Door County, see a small Chihuahua or pass a Kohl’s shopping center. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to St. Jude’s Hospital.
Mom, you will forever be in our memories and our hearts. We love you.
