William J. “Pa” Worley,91, was received in death by his wife of 57 years, Joan and his first born son, Willy, Saturday, October 21, 2017. Pa was born July 14, 1926 in Sturgeon Bay, WI., the youngest son of the late Joseph Osbourne Worley and Wilma Henrietta (Mann) Worley. Pa attended parochial school through 8th grade and graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 1944. Pa’s dream was to build and run a bowling alley with his wife, Joan and family. He did just that in 1957-1989. Pa always said he had a wonderful life, full of fun with his family and all his customers, some who became close friends and like family. Pa and Joanie were married July 31, 1948, at the Moravian Church in Sturgeon Bay, WI. They lovingly welcomed 5 children, Linda Danek (Robert, deceased); Cheryl Meingast (Robert); Willy (William G.J. deceased); Scott, and Keith. Pa was fun-loving grandfather to Christopher and Bill (Sheila) Worley, Chad, Bret and Adam (Chelsea) Danek, Kiana Worley, and Nicole and Taylor (Marissa) Worley. Pa loved his children and grandchildren with his whole heart. Pa was thrilled to be able to meet his great-grandchildren; Dylan Tenor (Bret Danek), Isaiah and Lilah Worley (Nicole Worley), Leah and McKenna Worley (Bill & Sheila Worley), Hunter Neuville (Adam Danek and Chelsy Segerstrom) and Vivian Danek (Adam & Chelsea Danek). Services will be held at the Moravian Church, 323 S. Fifth Avenue on Friday, Rev. Dr. Matthew Knapp, officiating October 27, 2017 at 4:00 P.M. All are invited to share those great stories of Pa. Pa will be laid to rest at Shiloh Moravian Cemetery, next to the love of his life, Joanie and their beloved son,Willy. Pa always said he would rather everyone enjoy a night out with their loved ones than have flowers or memorials at his funeral. Special thank you to nurses in DCMC, Tammy and Kelly, in ER and Med-Surg., the Skilled Nursing Facility at Door County Ministry Hospital, and Southern Care Hospice staff, especially Cathy and Leah.
