Obituary for Clarice K. Langel
Clarice K. Langel of Luck, WI died January 8, 2012, at the Amery Regional Medical Center.
Clarice was born August 2, 1936, in Luck, to Christian and Elsie Johansen. Clarice grew up in the Milltown area on her dad’s farm.
The youngest of two daughters, Clarice was a devoted wife and mother. In school she excelled in music, performing on the clarinet – a skill carried on by two daughters and her granddaughter. She also was a baton twirler for the marching band.
Clarice was a 1955 graduate of Milltown High School. She worked in Minneapolis right out of high school.
She was married to Donald Langel on June 8, 1957, and to this union, four children were born. She worked as a receptionist for a doctor’s office in Eau Claire and later was a receptionist at Maxwell Heating in Luck for 20 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
She is survived by her husband, Don; a son, Jim Langel of Milltown; three daughters, Ann Langel (husband Kevin Pachucki) of Madison, WI, Kay Langel of Baldwin, and Gail (husband Nathan Hibbs) of Dickinson, ND; four grandchildren, Tatia, Logan, Jeret and Mason Hibbs; a sister, Louanne Ament of Mesa, AR; an aunt, Sylvia Johnson of Canyon Country, CA; nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Her grandchildren were the light of her life.
She enjoyed bowling for the Dee’s Café and Park Avenue Salon teams. In the 1970s, she worked diligently behind the scenes of the Luck Winter Carnival Pageant. She also spent countless hours doing ceramics at the Brimblecoms’ Ceramics Shop in downtown Luck.
Clarice loved camping with her family and was a big fan of the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers and Luck Cardinals. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, knitting, crocheting, and cross-stitching. She enjoyed watching the ships at the Duluth Harbor on Lake Superior, and some of her favorite vacations were to Branson, MO, around Lake Superior into Canada, and to NASCAR races in Michigan and Phoenix (she was a Jeff Gordon fan). Most of all, she was known for her keen sense of humor.
Funeral Mass was held at St. Dominics Catholic Church in Frederic on January 13, 2012, with Father Dennis Mullen officiating. Music was provided by Kathy Tweet and Mary Lou Daeffler. Honorary Pallbearers were Max Littlefield, Jerry Spies, Louie D’Jock, John Donlin, Kevin Pachucki and Nathan Hibbs. Interment will be in the spring at St. Dominics Catholic Cemetery.
Family friends, Bruce and Ray Rowe of Rowe Funeral Home in Luck were in charge of arrangements. Online condolences may be left at or
