Theresa Arentz of Middle Ridge (Bangor), passed away Friday, January 10, 2020, at the age of 95 years at the home of her daughter and son-in-law Jim & Pat Schermerhorn in Bohemian Valley, where she has lived since June of 2019. She was truly blessed to have the care she received from both of them.

Theresa was born April 22, 1924 to Adolph & Bertha (Roesler) Mikshowsky. She married Arnold Arentz on June 19, 1946 in Middle Ridge. They lived in Bangor until 1955 and then moved to Middle Ridge where they farmed and raised seven children.

Theresa suffered with osteoarthritis for half of her life and Alzheimer’s for the last ten years.

Theresa was a member of St. Peter’s Catholic Church and its Ladies Church Auxiliary. She was active in the Bangor American Legion. Theresa especially enjoyed cooking and baking. Every Sunday after church, and many other days of the week, her kids and grandkids would stop in and she wouldn’t be happy until they ate some of her homemade goodies, especially her poppyseed torte. She sewed like a pro and in her later years did mending for anyone who needed it. She was fortunate to have all seven of her children (and many of her grandchildren) live within 20 miles of her home on the Ridge. Her kids and grandchildren meant the world to her and the more often they visited, the better she liked it. She loved spending time with family and friends.

Theresa leaves her seven children; Patty (Jim) Schermerhorn, Bill (Peggy) Arentz, Mary (Arlan) Schmidt, Sam (Sandy) Arentz, Tom (Pam) Arentz, Chuck (Cheryl) Arentz, and Terry (Sue) Arentz; 24 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, five great-great grandchildren, two sisters-in-law (Elreda Meyer and Florence Schaller), and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband Arnold in 1992, her parents Adolph and Bertha Mikshowsky, four sisters and their husbands; Marie (Bernard Hammes & Elmer Servais), Bernadine (Raymond) Jungen, Margaret (Jim) Martell, Mildred (Alphonse) Hammes, two brothers and their wives; Joe (Orena) Mikshowsky, and Ralph (Evelyn) Mikshowsky; three brothers-in-law and one sister-in-law: Herbert (Fritz) Meyer, Bobby and Arlene Arentz, and Al Schaller.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Middle Ridge on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 11 a.m. Rev. Biju C. Kunjukutty will officiate. Burial will follow at the church cemetery. Friends may call on the family at the church, Friday, January 24th from 4-7 p.m. with a Rosary recited at 3:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until the time of Mass.

Dear Patty, Bill, Mary, Sam, Tom, Chuck, and Terry.

Barb and I were so sad to hear of your Mom's death. We send our deepest sympathies. We know how much love and attention you gave her as her dementia progressed over the years. We have both lost mothers in a similar manner.
We were especially sadden by the fact we could not attend the memorial service and funeral. Honestly, we did not learn of you Mom's death until last night, January 26th. We were out of town when the obit ran in the tribune and no one in our immediate family pick it up. I wish we could have been there to honor her and to share the sadness with you all.

Your mom was one of the finest persons we have ever met. She was welcoming and caring and fun. As you well know, her door was always open.

We send our love and prayers for her and all of you.

Barb and Bud Hammes
