July 7, 1926 — October 6, 2016

Joan Marie Eggers, age 90 of Appleton, passed away peacefully Thursday, October 6, 2016. Joan was born in Appleton on July 7, 1926, daughter of the late Joseph and Marie (Ulrich) Langenberg. Joan was a lifelong and faithful member of St. Joseph Church in Appleton, and on October 7, 1947, she married Richard Eggers; he preceded her in death in 2004. Joan had a lovely voice and sang in the church choir for over twenty years. She also volunteered for various other tasks at St. Joseph. She loved children, and served the community as a school crossing guard for many years. She loved to visit with family and friends and reminisce about growing up in Appleton. Among her pastimes were knitting, playing bridge, and ice skating. Joan was a proud and persistent woman who was quite in charge of matters, yet was well cared for by her husband. Her children remember her has fun mother who made sure they had their share of camp-outs, picnics, and family outings to the “40” in Wautoma. She was also talented in the kitchen, and was known for her special venison stew and festive New Year's Eve gatherings.

Joan is survived by six loving children: Lyn (James) Richter of Appleton; Lee (Harold) Petta of Appleton; Richard (Jeanette) Eggers of New London; Anthony (Michele) Eggers of Shiocton; James (Sarah) Eggers of Appleton; and John (Teresa Moran) Eggers of Appleton. There are also thirteen grandchildren: James (Lesli) Richter, II, Dana Richter, Erin (John) Krueger, Devon (John) Little, Benjamin (Shannon) Eggers, Wendy (Bill) Moll, Jeff Welch, Lucas Eggers, Mitchell Eggers, Elyse Eggers, Ian Eggers, Aleanna Eggers, and Meghan Eggers; eight great-grandchildren; and a sister: Marie Vandenberg of Freedom. Joan is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Richard, brothers John and Joseph Langenberg, and a granddaughter, Angela Eggers.
