THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Arthur C. Koslowsky
Arthur Art C. Koslowsky, 88, of Lena passed away Thursday, June 27 at home with his family at his side.
Born to the late Charles and Tillie (Kershek) Koslowsky on Sept. 22, 1924 in the Town of Lena, he graduated from Oconto Falls High School in 1942.
He married Marie Levash on Sept. 29, 1945 and they took over operation of the Koslowsky and Levash farms. The greatest joy in his life was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed teaching all his grandchildren to drive at Papa Arts Driving School. He also enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, flower gardening, a great meal and a great practical joke. He was preceded in death by his wife, Marie on Dec. 24, 2008. From August 2006 until March 2013 he lived in Middleton in the care of his daughter, Karel Oliveras and family. In March 2013 he returned to the home in which he was born to spend his final months in the care of his son, Ken and daughter-in-law, Mary, where he could look out with pride upon the fields he tended during his lifetime as a farmer.
Among survivors are three children, Ken (Mary) Koslowsky of Coleman, Karen (Young) Park of Waunakee and Karel (Angel) Oliveras of Middleton; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Marie; a sister, Genevieve Koslowsky and three brothers, Kermit, Philip and Norman Koslowsky.
