      Sensenbrenner-Hermsen, Agnes L. Agnes L. Sensenbrenner-Hermsen, 89, of De Pere, passed away peacefully after a long illness on Monday, August 6, 2007. She was born in Ladysmith, Wisconsin, on December 30, 1917, to the late Rudy and Barbara (Schaefer) Sensenbrenner. After moving from Ladysmith, most of her early years were spent in Menasha, where she graduated from Menasha High School. There she played French horn in the National Championship Marching Band. She attended Lawrence College in Appleton where she was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. After studying at Mosser Business College in Chicago, she was employed by Kimberly-Clark Corporation in Neenah.

      Agnes married Jerry Hermsen in St. Patrick's Church in Menasha on July 7, 1941, and moved to De Pere in 1955, where she has resided ever since. She was a member of the St. Francis Xavier Congregation and a longtime member of the Altar Rosary Society. Agnes enjoyed needlepoint, crocheting and making craft items for her grandchildren. For many months she delivered Meals on Wheels to local residents who requested this service.

      She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Jerry (Gerald) Hermsen, and three children: Thomas (Judie) Hermsen, Barrington, IL; Barbara (John) Lamb, Wauwatosa, WI; and Tria (Jeff) Jensen of Pinellas Park, FL; four grandchildren: Mark (Joy) Hermsen, Jessica (Mike) Vahey, Sara and Kaitlin Lamb; four great-grandchildren: Annelise and Zoe Hermsen, and Anderson and Avery Vahey; brother, Robert P. (Dougie) Sensenbrenner of Park Ridge, IL; sisters: Margaret (Robert C. "Bud") Williams of Appleton and Barbara Cashman of Phoenix, AZ; plus in-laws: Lorraine Schwinn of Minneapolis; Bernard (Barbara) Hermsen of Glenview, IL; Joan (Tony) Groh of Milwaukee; Rosalie (Ernie) Miller of Minneapolis; Paul (Lois) Hermsen of Kaukauna; Imelda Kandler of Little Chute; Marge Miller of Appleton; plus nieces and nephews.

      She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers: Owen K. (Lucille) Sensenbrenner of Tarpon Springs, FL, and James (Ozzie) Sensenbrenner of Milwaukee; and sister, Mary Jane (Tut) Grode of Menasha.

      In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation in Agnes' memory to St. Francis Xavier Church or to Unity Hospice.

      The Hermsen family extends their gratitude to Reverend Father Jack Harper and to the entire staff at Unity for their special compassionate care of Agnes and our family. The family also extends a special thank you to Clarity Healthcare, especially Brenda Easman for her devoted concern, friendship and visits to Agnes during her last remaining days.

      To know Agnes was one of the true pleasures in life. She enjoyed visiting with people even if they were strangers. No matter how often and how much she suffered through numerous illnesses and setbacks she was always more concerned about how others were feeling. Her big heart and extreme empathy will be missed by all.

      Friends may visit with the family from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, August 11, at the St. Francis Xavier Church, 220 S. Michigan Street, De Pere. Memorial Mass 10 a.m. Saturday at the church with Rev. John H. Harper officiating.
