James Jurk Obituary

James Joseph Jurk, surrounded by loved ones passed away on October 23, 2023 at the age of 90.

Jim was born on March 19, 1933 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, to Edward and Anna Jurk. After graduating from Sheboygan Central High School, Jim proudly served in the United States Air Force.

On September 24, 1960, Jim married Carol Christensen at St. John Lutheran Church in Two Rivers. They settled in Oshkosh and became members of Grace Lutheran Church, where Jim was a faithful member and volunteer.

Jim enjoyed golfing, gardening, and photography. He became an expert at matting and framing many of his favorite pictures which included: lighthouses, sunsets and other beautiful outdoor settings. Most of Jim’s working years were spent with the Sherwin-Williams Company, from which he retired after 38 years of perfect attendance.

Jim is survived by his wife: Carol; and his two sons: Brad and David; his nephew: Michael; and nieces: Bonnie and Kelly. He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters: LaVonne and Diane; and his mother-in-law: Hortense Christensen.

Jim’s wishes were for a private service after which he was laid to rest at Pioneer Cemetery in Two Rivers.

The family would like to thank the staff of Gabriel’s Villa in Oshkosh for their heartfelt care and compassion, as well as their dear friend, Roxy, for her love and support.
