Eileen Behrend

Issue Date: May 6, 2020

Eileen (Kleinke) Behrend, 81, of Marinette, formerly of Menominee, Mi., passed away Friday May 1, 2020.

Born June 13, 1938, to Francis and Agnes (Johnson) Kleinke at her grandparents home in Ingallston, Mi. in the same room her mother was born in, she had a good childhood with her brothers, Bruce and Harvey and sisters Kathy, Sharon and Carol. Born into a commercial fishing family, she loved the water, boating and the beach. Years later, she turned the Bailey's property into the West Shore Fishing Museum. She attended a one-room schoolhouse in Arthur Bay, which is still standing, with one of her teachers being Ms. Aurora Bailey, who lived down the road from her. She graduated from Stephenson High School in 1955.

A good seamstress, she made clothes for her children, grandchildren and many in the neighborhood. She was an amazing gardener, artist, cake decorator and historian for her community and family. She will be remembered for her compassionate, care and love for the many children in her life.

She fell in love with the boy next door, David Behrend and they married in November 1955 and raised three children, Dennis, John and Carey in their home on County Road 338 and made their house the hub of neighborhood activities for many years. They owned and operated Behrend Forest Products and fished commercially.

She was the Ingallston Township treasurer for many years, taking the post over from her mother and was active in Town politics. A rural postal carrier for many years, she was a long-time member of the Cedar River Community Chapel and loved volunteering at Menominee Heritage Museum.

She is survived by three children, Dennis (Janet), John (Faith) and Carey (Kurt Hoppe); eight grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; a brother, Harvey (Sharon); three sisters, Kathy Campain, Sharon (Robert Buzanowski) and Carol (Wayne Wittenberg) and many nieces and nephews.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, David; one grandson and a brother, Bruce.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Anderson Kell Funeral Home of Menominee is assisting the family with arrangements. Memorial contributions can be made to West Shore Fishing Museum and the Cedar River Community Chapel.
