Faye D. (Boeldt) Gerhartz

Mar 19, 1948 - Jul 02, 2024


Faye D. (Boeldt) Gerhartz, at the age of 76 years she left this world on 7-2-2024 with her family by her side. Born on March 19, 1948 to Russel and Dorothy (Prinsen) Boeldt at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan. Faye attended Sheboygan Falls and graduated in the class of 1966. In that year, she met a Sheboygan boy, Gary R. Gerhartz and they were married on August 5, 1967.
Just married and not knowing how to boil potatoes, or prepare a steak, she did learn some cooking skills and loved to cook, especially creating homemade soups and chili for their two wonderful sons, Gavin (Katherin) Gerhartz and Gregory Gerhartz (Ken Nagy). Happily the meals got larger, as she was blessed with two grandsons, Nathan (Ashley) and Nicholas. Then, of course, it would also be cooking for hunting and fishing camp too!
Faye worked in office positions, mostly credit related throughout her working years and was credit manager for Polar Ware Company. When Polar Ware purchased Stoelting, she managed credit for both companies. When both companies were purchased by Vollrath, she then continued in Vollrath Credit Department until her retirement in 2013.
She enjoyed going to family members sporting events be it soccer, football, or trap shooting. Faye was also a trap shooter and won trophies for Sheboygan County High Ladies Championships.
“Up North” was special for her, as she designed and helped build their summer home on the lake. She loved the time she could spend there. She enjoyed fishing times spent in Canada, Lake Michigan and Lake Erie. As age became a factor, she had to give up snowmobiling and out state and country trips. Great were the memories of trips to Mexico, the Bahamas, Florida and especially Wyoming where she went to help on the hunt by pulling the deer up the hillside.
She is survived by her husband, Gary; sons, Gavin (Katherin) and Gregory (Ken Nagy); grandsons, Nathan (Ashley) and Nicholas; close family friends Randy and Carol Rossman in addition to cousins and many other friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents Russel and Dorothy Boeldt, in-laws Gordon and Lorraine Gerhartz and all the aunts and uncles.

Deepest sympathy to Faye's family. She was very enjoyable to work with at Polar Ware in the 1980's.
