Edward Elandt Obituary

Edward W. Elandt, age 91 of the Town of Dupont, Waupaca County passed away Wednesday August 23, 2023 at his home.

Edward was born on May 26, 1932 in Winegar as the son of the late Albert and Margaret (Hunt) Elandt. He grew up in Marion where he delivered newspapers as a boy and knew everyone in town. Edward graduated from Marion High School and went on to serve his country in the United States Navy. Serving during the Korean War, Edward was all over the Pacific Ocean. He was discharged and later married to Beverly Papendorf on May 12, 1956 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Oshkosh. The couple resided in Oshkosh while Edward worked for Gilbert’s Paper Mill and then spent 30 years working for the Winnebago County Highway Department. When time allowed he enjoyed working on the farm in Dupont with his son Patrick who was later killed in a tragic automobile accident. In 1998 the couple moved to Dupont where Edward enjoyed deer hunting with both bow and gun, and in general spending time outdoors. He was very proud of his vegetable garden and a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Marion.
