Gerald Anthony Losselyong, age 77, of Appleton, our friend, family, and loved one passed away July 22, 2021. Jerry struggled with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy with Parkinson like syndrome. He passed away with his loving wife Elaena by his side. Gerald was born August 7, 1943 to Nicholas & Theresa (Hartzheim) Losselyong. He married Elaena Mae Sharon DeLap on February 14, 1987 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Jerry leaves behind his wife of 34 years Elaena, his sister Betty (Robert) Nemackick, brother Eugene (Kathy) Losselyong, sisters-in-law Vivian Losselyong and Dolores Losselyong along with many nieces and nephews. There was also a special spot in Jerry’s heart for his beloved grandson Quintin Olsen.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Nicholas & Theresa (Hartzheim) Losselyong, brothers Don, Dan, Karl, Daniel, half-brother John (Wilma) Losselyong, and Aunt Margaret Hartzheim who raised Jerry after the passing of his parents.
Jerry was employed at Hydrite Chemical before retiring. Jerry and Elaena were members of Our Saviour’s Church in Appleton, Wisconsin. The couple enjoyed cruises, a beautiful trip to Hawaii, and camping with their friends the Weinfurters and Geigers. Jerry also enjoyed the Packers and Brewers along with wood working.
A special thank you to the Hospice team who provided insight and knowledge for the family. They were always there for Elaena whenever there was a need.

I have fought a good fight
I have finished my course
I have kept the faith
2 Timothy 4v. 7
Gerald my friend, my husband, my love, I will always miss you, but rest assured, you will never be forgotten. I welcome when we will meet again, and I can hear your laugh.
Before walking me down the aisle, my father asked me, “Why this one?
I replied, “The others made me cry, this one makes me laugh.”
Best decision ever. Good night my love, until we meet again.
