Myron “Mike” J. Sippl, 92, died Monday, April 19, 2021 under the care of Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services at Hospice House, Wausau.
He was born June 23, 1928 in Wausau, son of the late Charles and Susan (Jansen) Sippl. In 1956 he married Marlene Wadzinski at St. Mary Catholic Church, Marathon.
Myron attended St. Mary’s Catholic Grade School and was happy that he was able to meet with his first grade classmates every month over the last several years. In 1945 he enlisted in the United States Navy in Aviation Fundamentals Class A “AOM” School serving in Great Lakes, Illinois, Jacksonville, Florida and Patuxent River, Maryland. He served until 1947 when he returned home to help his father with the family business, Sippl Brothers Grocery Store where he was trained as a butcher. Over the years he also worked for Wausau Homes and retired in 1973 as a salesman for Riser Oil. He enjoyed reminiscing and lately his funny conversations were who was taking the most pills.
Survivors include his wife, Marlene Sippl, Schofield; son, Perry Sippl, Iron River, Michigan; sisters-in-law, Doris (Bill) Wadzinski, Oconomowoc, and Adrienne (Roger) Detert, Wausau; brother-in-law, Ivan (Loa) Wadzinski, Oconomowoc; many nieces and nephews; and his favorite cats, Noah and Patches.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a daughter, Shelly Woboril, brothers, Lawrence, James and Charles Sippl Jr. and a sister, Lucille Fish.
Private services will be held. Rev. Allan L. Slowiak will officiate.
The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to Dr. Steven Nichols, the staff at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, and Hospice House for their kind, compassionate care of Myron. Also a special thank you to everyone at the Veterans Administration.
