Kenneth Schmitz Obituary Photo.jpg

Kenneth B. Schmitz

July 21, 2021 Taos, Missouri

Kenneth B. Schmitz, 87, of Jefferson City, MO, took his place in Heaven with Jesus when he passed away peacefully at Capital Region Medical Center on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, after a short illness.

He was born at home on June 25, 1934, in Jefferson City, MO, the son of Tobias and Margaret “Motzie” (Schrimpf) Schmitz.

 

Ken graduated from 8th grade at Immaculate Conception Catholic School in Jefferson City, MO, and then went on to join the order of Oblate Christian Lay Brothers in Illinois, where he learned the profession of cutting hair.  

 

Discovering that this was not his true calling, he returned home and met the love of his life, Barbara Ann Stokes. They were united in marriage at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Taos, MO on October 6, 1956. Barb preceded him in death on May 8, 2014.

 

The printing trade was his passion, and he started his career at Modern Litho Printing. From there, he worked at Marvin Leonard Printing before partnering to start Jeff City Printing in 1971. In September 1978, he began his own printing business, Show Me Printing Company. He successfully operated that business until his retirement and sale of the company in 2000, and continued working in the printing business until 2012. He also owned Brigitte’s Alteration and Brigitte’s Stitch & Design.

Ken was a member of the Jefferson City Cosmopolitan Club and enjoyed having his children and grandchildren as guests on Pancake Day at the Selinger Center. 

 

He and his family were members of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Jefferson City, MO for many years before moving to Taos.  His wife, Barb, and he then became active parishioners of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Taos. He served as an usher and communion minister for the parish, as well as assisting his wife with the multiple volunteer committees on which she served.  Ken could often be found volunteering at the Samaritan Center.  

 

Ken’s life was his wife, to whom he could never say “no," and his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  From the early years of their life together, Sundays were reserved for family time at the cabin on the Osage River and later on Twehous Lake at their new home. He started the afternoon by putting the boat in and pulling the grandkids skiing or tubing, and often the evening ended with a bowl of Central Dairy vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup.  He loved every minute he could spend with his grandchildren. He enjoyed having a special place to share with his family and friends.  He always kept his property in pristine condition from his landscaping to his flowers.  

 

He always said that he had the “perfect” life being married to his wife and making memories with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. 

 

He kept a meticulous calendar and enjoyed Face-Timing all of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to wish them a happy birthday on their special day.  Whether saying hello or goodbye, his loved ones always received a genuine hug and an infectious smile with deep dimples that lit up the world from their, “sweet lovable, sweet lovable, sweet lovable,” father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

 

Ken enjoyed playing poker, billiards, and blitz with anyone who dared entertain a game with him. He loved watching the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Chiefs.  

 

Ken moved to Primrose Retirement Center a couple of years ago.  When COVID shut things down, including visitor hours, Ken stepped in to become the Friday night D.J. at Primrose for his fellow residents. 

 

He never wavered in his belief and faith in God and never allowed the pandemic to prevent his Sunday worship. Using his resources and technology he was able to live-stream mass on the big screen for fellow Catholic residents. He further assisted his fellow Catholic residents by distributing Holy Communion brought in from St. Martin Parish, where he had been attending mass since moving to Primrose.  

 

He leaves a legacy of memories and lessons for his family. 

Ken is survived by his five children: Randy (Donna) Schmitz (Jefferson City), Pam Backers (Lake of the Ozarks), Shaun (Julie) Schmitz (Taos), Toby (Tammy) Schmitz (St. Martins), and Brad (Dana) Schmitz (Westphalia); 13 grandchildren: Travis Backers,  Ashley (Justin) Raithel, Derek (Jamie) Schmitz, Emily (Heath) Cobb, Miranda (Kyle) Stevens, Kyla (Christian) Asel, Garrett (Beth) Schmitz, Sabrina (Nick) Frank, Gavin Schmitz, Grant Schmitz, Grayden Schmitz, Kayleen Schmitz, and Nadine Schmitz; and 22 great-grandchildren with one more expected in 2021. He is also survived by one sister, Mary Dee Noonan; one brother, Alfred Schmitz; two brothers-in-law: Bill (Mary Alice) Stokes and Mike Stokes; three sisters-in-law Mary (Eddie) Eiken, Shirley VanderFeltz, and Margaret Muenks; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 57 years; one great-grandson: Tristan Backers; one brother: Frank Schmitz; two sisters-in-law: Lucille Schmitz and Irma Schmitz; three brothers-in-law: Joe Noonan, Bob VanderFeltz, and Leonard Muenks; two nieces: Kateri Michaelson and Marcia Schweiss; and one nephew: Doug Schmitz.  

 

Visitation will be held Sunday August 1, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church - Taos, MO.  A funeral mass will be celebrated Monday, August 2, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Francis Xavier.  The funeral mass will be live-streamed on the facebook page of Tyler M. Woods Funeral Director for those unable to attend. www.Facebook.com/TylerMWoodsFuneralDirector

James "Jim" Dale Bryan

July 1, 2021 Etterville, Missouri

James Dale Bryan, 80 of Etterville, MO., passed away Thursday, July 1, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family.  Jim was born in Jefferson City on March 13, 1941, and was the middle son of three boys.  He grew up an Osage County boy from Linn, MO, playing basketball as a Linn High School Wildcat.  He attended Lincoln University working towards an engineering degree when he started working in sales to put himself through college.  He worked as a sales rep for several companies before deciding to start his own businesses.  He served in the US Army Reserves from 1962-1968.  He married Eleanor Slawson Randazzo in 1965 and they had three children together.  He enjoyed the outdoors and especially enjoyed playing golf and hunting.  He was loved dearly and held in the highest regard.

If you ask a hundred people who James Dale Bryan was, their answers will certainly vary.  A savvy salesman who was fearless in his ability to make a new friend.  A successful entrepreneur who was not afraid to take risks necessary to build a business.  A humanitarian who saw potential in everyone he met and gave so many a second chance to improve their circumstances.  A soldier in the US Army…thank you for your service to country.  A loving husband and father who always made sure his family was provided for.  An avid hunter and fisherman.  A teacher, a brother, a friend, or maybe just a golfing buddy.  No matter how you knew him, he never sugar-coated things, and you always knew where you stood with him.

Jim is survived by his wife of 56 years Eleanor (Ellie) Bryan; two sister-in-laws: Susan Brand, Mary Bryan; brother: John Bryan (Paula); two sons: Jim Bryan and Jeffrey Bryan; one daughter: Jane Holt (Rob); seven grandchildren: Robbie (Jamee), Taylor, Harley, Karson (Jacob), Justin, Payton, Madalyn; three great grandchildren: Kaelyn, Kaiser, and Axel; and several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his father: Emerson Bryan; his mother Neva Bryan; one brother: Robert “Jerry” Bryan, and daughter-in-law: Mary Elizabeth Bryan.

 

A Celebration of Life with Military Honors will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 17th at the North Jefferson Recreation Area Outdoor Pavilion, 927 Fourth Street, Jefferson City, MO 65101. We would love to see you there as we honor his life. 

 

Like a ship sailing away, he might be out of our site but never gone.  He will live in our memories for the rest of our days.  If you knew Jim, you know he would not want any tears and from the family, we just thank you for being a part of his life.

Richard Emslander MD Obituary Photo.png

Dr. Richard F. Emslander

December 10, 2020 - Jefferson City, Missouri

Dr. Richard Franz Emslander passed away peacefully at home in Jefferson City, MO with his daughter Hildegard and son in-law Michael at his side on Thursday December 10, 2020, at the age of 93 years. He had just finished drinking his iced coffee, enjoying the sunset and watching the Christmas lights. 

 

 Richard was born on November 2, 1927 in Augsburg Germany, as the eldest of seven children to Richard and Anni Emslander. He grew up in Eichstätt, a small town in the beautiful Altmühl valley in Bavaria, Germany where he attended the local high school. Growing up he often helped his father in the family owned Hofmühl brewery. At age 15, he was drafted into the German home guard. While biking to deliver messages, Richard witnessed both towns on his route bombed, and he lost most of his high school class that day. At the end of the war, after a short period as an American prisoner of war, he was dismissed and allowed to walk the 18 miles to his home. Soon after the war’s end he was supplying beer and schnapps to the American soldiers, much to their delight. 

 

During this time, he also discovered his love of medicine, and rather than going into the family business, he went to the University of Würzburg medical school, followed by studies in Munich and Paterson, NJ. In Paterson he met Ingeborg Nesseler, ‘the love of his life’ and they were engaged six months later. In 1959, they moved to Rochester, MN where Richard began internal medicine training at the Mayo Clinic and then received an MS in medicine from the University of Minnesota. Inge and Richard were married on January 23, 1960 in Rommerskirchen, Germany and had one daughter, Hildegard Claire Emslander Ryan. They were married 58 years until Inge’s death in 2018.

 

 After his training at the Mayo Clinic he stayed on in the Department of Endocrinology. He practiced 50+ years at Mayo – one of their longest – and received the Mayo Lifetime Achievement Award. He was active in medical education and on the board of the Mayo Stiftung in Germany. His gift with languages, clinical skills and caring bedside manner attracted many international patients by word of mouth, especially from Germany, South America and Indonesia. Richard was the ultimate patient advocate. He frequently conducted pre-visit phone interviews and welcomed traveling patients at the airport or hotel. His grateful patients celebrated his exceptional care by generous donations to fully fund two Mayo research fellowships and a professorship in his name. 

  

Richard was a beloved doctor, but he was also a beloved husband, Vati, Papa, and Opa. He was very sociable, and when not engaging with the person next to him, he was on the phone with friends, family or patients. His great passion was travel which was always linked to visiting friends all over the world. He loved to “cook” for his family by taking them out to dinner. He had an undeniable sweet tooth and loved eating glazed donuts, bread with honey and vanilla ice cream with his grandkids. He was always excited to go to a party of any kind and kept a chilled bottle of champagne and, of course, beer ready for any celebration. A true Bavarian, he loved potatoes and gravy and always announced “it’s gin and tonic time” before dinner.

  

Richard was an active member of St John’s parish in Rochester until he moved to Jefferson City where he attended St Peter's Catholic Church.

 

He is survived by his brother Rudolf Emslander (Elizabeth Emslander), his sister Lissy Glöck (Dieter Glöck), daughter, Hildegard Emslander Ryan MD (Michael Ryan MD) of Jefferson City and his grandchildren, Thomas, Claire, Camilla and Nicholas Ryan. He was preceded in death by his wife Ingeborg Emslander MD, 4 brothers; Willibald Emslander, Franz Emslander (Inge Emslander), Heribert Emslander (Helga Emslander) and one sister Gertrud Höfter (Kurt Höfter). 

 

Expressions of sympathy may be made to the Mayo Foundation: https://philanthropy.mayoclinic.org/donateMC

 

Mass of Christian Burial will be private for the family conducted at St Peter's Catholic Church. A celebration of Dr. Emslander's life will be held when Coronavirus has subsided.
