Obituary for Joseph Bernard Meehan

Print
Joseph B. “Joe” Meehan, age 88, of Janesville, passed away Tuesday afternoon, October 16, 2018 at SSM Health/St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison. Joe was born June 30, 1930 in Janesville, the son of the late Joseph W. & Irene M. (McKillip) Meehan. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy. On April 23, 1955 he married the former Delores J. “Dee” Nelson at the Brooklyn Lutheran Church in Brooklyn, WI. Joe worked for over 37 years as a Skilled Trades Machinist at General Motors Corp. until his retirement. After retiring, he worked on the grounds crew at Oak Ridge Golf Course in Milton. He was a longtime member of the U.A.W. Local 95. He was a very active and involved member of Peace Lutheran Church for over 50 years. He loved bowling, golf, and pitching horse shoes. He was a very avid Brewer, Packer, and Badger fan. Joe and Dee loved to travel, and they enjoyed several cruises together, including one to the Caribbean. Being a vet, Joe was able to go on a VetsRoll trip to Washington, DC, and that trip meant everything to him. Joe’s greatest love was his family. His best times were spent with Dee and their family, and especially with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren! He was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather who will be remembered by all as ‘the rock” of his family. He was fortunate enough to be surrounded by family until the very end, and he will be dearly missed!
He is survived by his wife of 63 years. Dee; his 3 sons, Randy Meehan, Terry (Lori) Meehan, and Al (Denise) Meehan; his daughter, Donna (Richard “Gilby”) Gilbertson, all of Janesville; his beloved grandchildren, Jason (David), Andrew (Victoria), Jeffery (fiancé, Jeffery), Brent (Amanda), Tia, Dani (Billy), Angie (Bobby), Stephanie (Landon), Brodie (Jessica), and Kylee; his 11 great-grandchildren, with 2 more expected; his brother, Leonard (Mildred) Meehan, of Evansville; and by nieces, nephews, and friends. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his grandson, Ryan Copeland, and his sister, Betty Schultz.
Funeral services for Joe will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Monday, October 22, 2018 at PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH, 1550 S. Osborne Ave., with Rev. Richard Lehmann and Rev. Victor Prange officiating.
