In loving memory of

Jeannine A. Paulus
March 8, 1950 - March 12, 2021

Jeannine Ann (Sersch) Paulus (JAS) left us on March 12 th , 2021 to begin a new journey. She was born on
March 8 th , 1950 to Arthur Laverne Sersch Sr. and Jean W. (Schimming) Sersch at Madison General
Hospital. She graduated from Stoughton High School in 1968 where she enjoyed playing in the marching
band and pep band. While in school, she worked at various restaurants in Stoughton and McFarland. She
found a second home working at the Park Ponderosa Ballroom (The Pondy) in McFarland. In the fall of
1968, she began working for the State of Wisconsin at the Motor Vehicle Dept. and then moved on to
the Dept. of Industry, Labor, and Human Relations (DILHR). She retired in March of 2005. In August of
1990, she married Mike Paulus at the Pondy.
Jas grew up at the bowling alley where her dad worked and enjoyed the sport for most of her teen and
adult life. After she got married, she enjoyed shooting pool in both Stoughton and Oregon leagues and
took part in following the men's pool leagues around with her husband. She cherished these times that
she had with her friends more than she did shooting pool - although she would give anyone a run for
their money.
Jas had a special bond with her grandson Leo. She loved watching him wrestle, play football, baseball,
and especially enjoyed watching him on stage, acting, singing, and directing. She spent a lot of time
helping in the various activities he participated in and meeting all the new friends she gained through
doing so. Her favorite thing outside of spending time with him was listening to him sing. The many
friends that Leo had with these activities, all called her grandma.
Jeannine is survived by her husband, Michael Earl Paulus, daughter, Victoria Lynn Sersch and her son,
Leo Joseph Arthur Endres, step-son Matthew J. Paulus, his wife Beth, and their children Jakob and Will,
step-daughter Amy J. Garcia, and her children Micaela, Camilla, and Xavier. She is also survived by her
brothers, Duane Arthur Sersch, his wife Gaylen, and Arthur Laverne Sersch Jr., many nephews, a niece,
many cousins and their families.
Jeannine was preceded in death by her father, Art Sersch Sr., her mother Jean Sersch, her grandparents
and all of her aunts and uncles.
Jas wanted all of her family and friends to remember all of the good times they had together. Due to her
wishes, a gathering of all her family and friends will be held in the summer of 2021 at a local park. A
tentative date is planned for June. A notice will be posted in the local papers.
Please share your memories of Jas by posting Tributes.
