Otto August Maas, 78, Chilton, was called to eternal life on Saturday, January 28, 2012.
He went peacefully to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, following a period of declining health and strength. He lived a life wrapped in the love of Jesus. He would have us remember one thing: know Jesus, live, trust and rest in Him. His family cherishes the memories of his faithful love for all, which was rooted in Jesus' love for him. Otto A. Maas, a son given by the Lord, to Fred and Adaila Maas, was born in Watertown, WI on August 27, 1933. He was drafted into the United States Army on October 22, 1953 and served as light truck, ambulance, and personal driver for higher ranking officers in both the U.S. and France until his honorable discharge on October 12, 1955. On July 11, 1953 he married Beverly Stache, who, together for more than 58 years, raised four children and experienced a joyous and fruitful life in the faithful companionship which the Lord had entrusted to them. Surviving along with his wife, are a brother, Frederick "Fritz" (Betty) Maas, two sisters, Florence Loomens and Lillian Maas, two daughters, Kathleen (Tom) Teague and Lorna (Mike) Olson, and one son Kevin (Marti) Maas. He will also be remembered by 7 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Fred and Adaila, a son Brett, and three sisters, Anita Stache, Freida Stache, and Ester Jischkowsky. Otto enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting, woodworking and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty on automobile repairs. He was willing to try and do just about anything he thought he was capable of. Otto worked for Carnation Co. in Chilton WI for over 22 years and was able to enjoy retirement at an early age.
We rejoice in the knowledge that he has been called home to live forever with his Savior. The Church was the focus of his life, which he served faithfully and displayed the Christian graces which today so richly bless our memories. His family takes this occasion to thank their many friends for the kindnesses which have been given during this time of sorrow. Christian friends and family are indeed the most meaningful gifts of life. Funeral service will be at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at Trinity Lutheran Church, Rantoul (N6080 West River Rd., Hilbert) with the Rev. Tim Benninghoff officiating. Burial will follow in the Parish Cemetery. Friends may call at the church from 10:00 AM until 11:45 AM on Saturday, February 4, 2012.
