UW-Green Bay community mourns the loss of two members of the Phoenix Family

In the the past few days, UW-Green Bay learned of the passing of John Kuhlmann, longtime librarian for the Marinette Campus, and Sarah Schuetze, assistant professor of English and Humanities on the Green Bay campus. In a message to the campus community Sunday, Chancellor Mike Alexander noted, “This is a great loss to our university community and to their respective fields. Our students have lost respected mentors and we have lost not just colleagues, but friends.”

A visitation for John Kuhlmann, will be Thursday, Jan. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Cadieu Funeral Home, 549 10th Ave, Menominee. Campus friends and family are invited to attend.  Masks are required. Please see the full obituary.
