Ockershauser, Inez B. (14 JAN 1921 - 19 AUG 2005)

Inez Bernice Ockershauser, 84, died on Friday, Aug. 19, 2005, at the House of the Dove, Hospice Home, Marshfield. Funeral services were held at Rembs/Kundinger Funeral Home, Marshfield. The Rev. Peter K. Muschinske, pastor of Faith Lutheran Church, officiated. Burial was in the town Of Beaver Cemetery in Clark County. Pallbearers were her family and friends.

Inez Bernice was born on Jan. 14, 1921, in Loyal, to Henry and Elsie (nee Brechbuhl) Bloom. She graduated from Loyal High School in 1938, and worked for a while at a small private hospital in Owen, before going to Milwaukee where she attended Spencerian Business College. She then went to Chicago where she worked for International Furu=nature and the Ovaltine Company. She met her husband, Karl, in Chicago and they were married in 1950. Two years after their marriage, her husband was transferred to Detroit, Mich., to the main office of the spring company for which he worked. She worked for the Packard Motor Car Company until it merged with Studebaker and moved the offices to South Bend, Ind. They lived in the Detroit area for 16 years, first in Grosse Pointe Woods and then in Bloomfield Hills. Because of her husband’s work transfers, they also lived in High Point, N. C., and South Bend, Ind., before returning to Marshfield in the fall of 1975.

She is lovingly survived by her two brothers, Glen (Agnes) Bloom, Loyal, and Clifford Bloom, Beijing, China; two sisters-in-law, Vivian Bloom, Unity, and Zada Bloom, Loyal; nieces and nephews.

Preceding her in death were her parents; her husband, Karl; two brothers, Leo Bloom and Lester Bloom; and a sister, Esther Schultze.

Rembs/Kundinger Funeral Home, Marshfield, assisted the family with arrangements.
