It is with sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Elizabeth H. Milhaupt of Appleton, Wisconsin, on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at the age of 98. She was born in Appleton to the late John and Elizabeth (Nienhaus) Haug on August 20, 1923. Elizabeth graduated from Appleton Senior High School, class of 1941. She then attended Mount Mary College and graduated in 1945 with a Medical Degree. She did an internship at Northwestern University and later returned to Appleton. She and John Milhaupt married on January 18, 1947, at St. Joseph Catholic Church. She was a special mother to her children and will be remembered for her kind, cheerful, positive attitude and sense of humor. Elizabeth worked at St. Elizabeth Hospital and the Community Blood Center. She was a member of the Mount Mary Alumnae Ass., Catholic Daughters and Laetare Book Club. After retirement John and Liz enjoyed traveling and spending time at their cottage and winters on South Padre Island and other warm places.
She is lovingly remembered by her children: Martha (Michael) Behrens, Plover; Mary (Edward) Dragovich, Milwaukee and Charles (JoLee Ellingson) Milhaupt, Appleton; and six grandchildren: Matthew (LeeAnn), Joseph, and Jacob (Abby DeVita) Behrens, children of Martha; and Charles Jr., Sarah (Tony) Oni, and Leslie (Kevin) Ogano, children of Charles. She is further survived by many "favorite" nieces and nephews. Elizabeth will also be dearly missed by her friends throughout Appleton and at Eagle Point.
Elizabeth is now reunited with her husband and favorite prankster, John C. Milhaupt. She was also preceded in death by her son, Nick; and her siblings: Margaret Schuh, John Haug, Mary Rose Schwartz, Jeanne Ewens and Joseph Haug.
