Arthur “Art” C. Koslowsky, 88, of Lena passed away Thursday, June 27, 2013, at home with his loving family at his side. He was born to the late Charles and Tillie (Kershek) Koslowsky, September 22, 1924 in the Town of Lena.

Art graduated from Oconto Falls High School in 1942. He married Marie Levash September 29, 1945. They took over operation of the Koslowsky and Levash farms. The greatest joy in his life was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Art enjoyed teaching all his grandchildren to drive at “Papa Art’s Driving School.” He also enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, flower gardening, a great meal and a great practical joke.

Arthur was preceded in death by his wife, Marie, December 24, 2008. From August 2006 until March 2013 Art lived in Middleton in the loving care of his daughter Karel, son-in-law Angel and granddaughters Maria and Michelle Oliveras where he tried his hand at the pursuits of a city gentleman, making many new friends. In March 2013 Arthur returned back to the home in which he was born to spend his final months in the tender care of his son Ken and daughter-in-law Mary. This was where he could look out with pride upon the fields he tended during his lifetime as a farmer. Art is survived by three children, Ken (Mary) Koslowsky, Coleman; Karen (Young) Park, Waunakee; Karel (Angel) Oliveras, Middleton; grandchildren, Jen (Bill) Blair, Marshall; Jodie Bellow, Denmark; James (Angela) Koslowsky, Coleman; Maria and Michelle Oliveras, Middleton; great grandchildren, Dominik and Rylee Blair, Marshall; Brady, Bryce and Bailee Bellow, Denmark and Breanna and Lucas Koslowsky, Coleman.
