Jerome Kell

March 15, 1936 — July 26, 2021

Weston, Wisconsin

Jerome Kell, 85, of Weston passed away peacefully on July 26, 2021, surrounded by his family.

Jerome was born on March 15, 1936 to Alvin and Marcella (Ninneman) Kell in Wausau. He attended school in Wausau and married Marlys Lamphier on October 7, 1961 in Wausau. Jerome worked at Marathon Mill, Rothschild Paper Mill, Gas Company, and Heating Design throughout his working career after serving his country in the Army National Guard from 1954-1961 and was called to serve during the Berlin Wall crisis.

Jerome enjoyed wood-working, golfing, bowling, fishing, and watching football and baseball games, including those of his grandsons. He joined his children in many of their activities, including Boy Scouts and Youth Group. Jerome was well known in the family for his sense of humor and ability to talk to anyone, as he was always able to find a familiar face at any Friday fish fry. His stubborn nature made him a tough poker player at family game nights, and also served him well as he worked to hold off saying goodbye to his family as long as he could.

He is survived by his wife of almost 60 years, Marlys; four children, Karla (Steve) Neumann [grandchildren Aaron (Hannah) Neumann, Lauryn Neumann], of Kronenwetter, Kristi (Roger) Liss [grandchild Kylie Liss] of Hatley; Kevin (Mary Jo) Kell of Wausau; Ken (Elizabeth) Kell [grandchildren Aimee (Alex) Burazin, Caleb Kell, Alex Kell, Ryan (Megan Schroeder) Kell] of Weston; his two sisters, Julaine Raduechel of Wausau and Janeel (Gary) Westberg of Weston. Jerome is also survived by his three great-grandchildren, William and Ava Burazin & Hunter Neumann.

Jerome was preceded in death by his parents; and one granddaughter, DyLana Neumann.

Funeral Service will be 3:00 pm Friday, July 30  at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1901 Kowalski Rd, Kronenwetter WI with visitation two hours prior to the service. Burial will be at a later date.

In Lieu of flowers, please direct all donations to Compassus Hospice.

The family would like to especially thank the entire staff of Compassus Hospice for the care they gave to Jerome these past few days.
