Frank was born on January 3, 1934 in the Town of Richfield, the son of Louis and Alpha (Hann) Woehrle. He graduated from Marshfield Senior High School. Following graduation, he joined the Naval Reserve and served his country for eight years. He worked as a carpenter for most of his life, driving dump truck and as a heavy equipment operator for Nikolai Transport. He was known for his dedication to the job and to hard work; both traits he instilled into his kids. On January 30, 1954, he was united in marriage to Carol Lingford in Arpin. They celebrated 68 years together and raised six children.
He enjoyed hunting whitetail deer, bird hunting for pheasant and grouse or small game hunting for rabbit and squirrel. He took up speed boat racing, loving both the speed and the competition. Frank was a skilled musician heading out to Nashville and recorded records later having a video tape published now on YouTube, “Sing Along with Frank Woehrle.”
Those who will cherish his memory include his children, Debra, Ronald, Charles, Gene and Barbara; his grandchildren, Tara, Shawn, Sheila, Mathew, Michael, Ashley and Amanda; his 10 great-grandchildren; his brother, James Woehrle of Marshfield and his sister, Nancy (Phillip) Hansen of Iowa along with many other relatives and friends.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents, Louis and Alpha; his wife, Carol; his daughter, Sharon and his sister Evelyn.
