beloved children, Gerald (Joanne) Lembke, Diane (Michael) O'Malley, Patricia

(Thomas) Pilachowski and Janet Lembke, who lived with and cared for Johanna

during her long illness. Johanna had three grandchildren, Chad (Joi) Lembke,

Ryan Pilachowski and Staci Pilachowski; one great-granddaughter, Rayhanna

Lembke; and one brother, Hans (Patricia) Seuthe. Ernst and Minna Seuthe

immigrated to the United States in December 1923. On January 25, 1925, their

daughter Johanna was born in Grafton, WI, at the home of relatives who had

sponsored them to come to the "land of opportunity." The extended family moved

to Milwaukee where Johanna lived for the first 15 years of her life. Tragedy

struck when Ernst Seuthe died of a hear attack at the age of 50. The family was

without support, and the country was in deep depression. The Milwaukee property

was sold, and the family moved to a small farm near Hartland in the Town of

Merton. Johanna finished high school at Hartland High School, graduating with

the class of 1943. Upon graduation, she was employed at the State Bank of

Hartland and worked there until 1954. On May 20, 1944, Johanna married Melvin

Lembke at St. Paul Lutheran church in Oconomowoc. They farmed in the Town of

Merton for many years. When her children began school, Johanna was drawn to

public service. This began a history of serving that spanned several decades.

Johanna served on the school board of Center Oak Elementary for nine years In

1965, she was elected as Town of Merton Treasurer and served as treasurer for

three terms. She then ran successfully for Town Clerk and retained that position

until 1985. She further served as town supervisor and was appointed to the Town

Planning Commission. Concurrent with her Town of Merton positions, Johanna

served 18 years on the Town Library Board of Trustees and participated in the

dedication of the original Town of Merton Library. The recent addition to that

facility confirmed her belief in the value of the library to the community.

Johanna, Melvin and Janet moved to Oconomowoc in 1998. Johanna and Melvin were

members of the Kettle Moraine Senior Citizens Club for many years. They made

many dear and lasting friendships, while enjoying social activities and

This was exemplified through his work with S.O.S., a food pantry in Sussex, local cooperating churches, and with the Hamilton School District. Al served on the board of directors at Planned Parenthood, NARAL, the Family Service Center, the Voluntary Action Center, and the Pewaukee Ministerial Association. He was active in the Wisconsin Council of Churches, and many other community-driven projects. He held degrees from Occidental College, Union Theological Seminary and the University of Chicago.
