James Lueneburg

James Lueneburg(Jim), 77, passed away peacefully from a fall on February 5th, surrounded by Linda, his wife of 51 years, his two children, Jason and Greg, and his daughter-in-law, Julie. He was born to Clem and Deloris, in Racine, on November 3rd, 1945. He graduated from Racine Horlick High School in 1963 and continued his education at South Dakota State University (Home of the Jackrabbits).  He graduated with a degree in printing management in 1967. Following graduation he served in the Army.

Jim married Linda Vogel on May 1st, 1971 in Racine, Wisconsin.  In 1973, the couple welcomed their first child Jason before moving to Denver, Colorado where he worked for Frederic Printing. They were blessed with their second child Greg in 1975.  In 1980 they moved to Neenah, Wisconsin and Jim continued his career at Neenah Printing where he became General Manager.  Jim retired from Menasha Corporation, but continued to stay active.  He was busy as a consultant, a realtor, and owner of his own woodworking business (B.S. Products).

When Jim wasn’t working he liked to spend time with his family and friends.  He was an avid golfer who liked to play different courses, but his favorite golf course was always The Orchards at Egg Harbor.  Jim would play the concertina for anyone who would listen, and loved to polka.  He also loved to spend time at their cottage taking boat rides and snowmobiling in the winter.  Jim’s greatest joy was being part of anything that had to do with his family, and especially his five grandchildren.

Jim and Linda had many adventures over their 51 years together.  They were fortunate to be able to see many parts of the world, spend time up north, and play lots of golf.  Together their favorite adventures were the ones spent with the entire family, as family was always the most important to them.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents Clem and Deloris Lueneburg, mother and father-in-law Jake and Edith Vogel, and brother-in-law Jarry Erbe.

Jim is survived by his loving wife Linda, children Jason (Julie) Lueneburg and Greg Lueneburg.  His five much loved grandchildren, Jackson, Gavin, Peyton, Kaitlyn, and Lizzy.  His siblings, Sharon (Denny) Johnson and Gary (Pat) Lueneburg. His sister-in-law Joan Erbe.  His many loved nieces and nephews and countless family members and friends.

The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the caregiving staff at the Valley VNA and Theda Care Hospital in Neenah.

The family will be establishing a memorial in Jim’s name.
