Clement Frank Wagner

November 23, 1925 — March 1, 2024

Howards Grove

Clement “Clem” F. Wagner, 98 years 3 months and 7 days, of Howards Grove passed away peacefully in his sleep with his loving wife by his side on Friday, March 1, 2024 at home.   He was born November 23, 1925 in the Town of Mosel to the late Carl and Leona (Herr) Wagner.  Clem attended St. Fidelis School in Spring Valley.  On October 23, 1965 he was united in marriage to Bonnie Coerper at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Stevens Point.  Together Clem and Bonnie celebrated 58 years of marriage.  He had a special love for his entire family, appreciating the time spent together.

Clem was a proud but humble veteran having served in the US Army from 1954-1956.  He was a 39-year member of the Franklin American Legion Post 387, holding the position of Sergeant at Arms for many years.  He faithfully marched in many Memorial Day parades in Howards Grove and the Town of Rhine.

Following the service to his country, Clem worked for Gabe’s Construction, Vollrath Company, Hayssen Manufacturing, and EnzoPac, retiring in 1988.

As a faith-filled Catholic he served as Eucharistic Minister at St. Dominic Catholic Church for many years, volunteered with the parish Fall Festival and the usher’s brat fry.   In his quiet way of leading by example, he greeted others with his smile.  He was a kind-hearted man and befriended many people throughout his lifetime.   He took great pride in his yearly harvest from his gardens and many fruit trees.  Clem was a well-seasoned sheepshead player, always ready for a game and an avid sports fan, enjoying many Packers and Brewers games on the radio or TV.   

Clem is survived by his wife Bonnie, five children Henry (Michelle) Wagner, Paula (Donny) Mueller, Donna Landwehr, Rita (Tim) Steffen, Richard (Elicia) Wagner; ten grandchildren Dylan Hanneman (fiancée Heidi Steckel), Kathryn Wagner, Grace Wagner, Brian Mueller (fiancée Molly Carrig), Diana Mueller (fiancée Evan Skroch), Christopher Mueller, Amanda Landwehr, Larry (Danielle) Landwehr, Ivon Steffen, and Nathanael (Kayla) Wagner; four great-grandchildren Paislee Bertino, Berkley Landwehr, Everly Landwehr, and Rodey Landwehr; the fifth great-grandchild is expected in July; siblings Sylvia (Bill) Silberberg and Cletus (Nancy) Wagner, and sister-in-law Mary Jo Wagner.  Also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings Delores (Melvin) Wesener, Adrian (June) Wagner, Florence (Wilfred) Jetzer, Charles (Mary Lou) Wagner, Lee Roy (Marlene) Wagner, Anna Cile Wagner, Sr. Veronica Wagner, and Jerome Wagner. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on March 7, 2024 at 12:00 p.m. at St. Dominic Catholic Church, 2133 N. 22nd St., Sheboygan, with Fr. Phil Reifenberg as officiant.  Private entombment will take place at Greenlawn Memorial Park in the Garden of Peace Mausoleum.  Relatives and friends may visit with the family on March 7, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. until the time of Mass at the CHURCH. If you are unable to join the family for the service, it will be recorded and can be viewed on Clement’s obituary page on the funeral home website.

The family would like to thank the staff of Sharon Richardson Hospice, especially Karla, Amy, and Joe.
