The former Nancy Dawn Wegener was born on September 27, 1950 in Hustisford, Wisconsin to George and Amy (Wuestoff) Wegener. On September 30, 1927, Nancy was united in marriage with the late Larry F. Davison at Bethany Lutheran Church in Hustisford. They had three children; Susie, Tammi and Jeremy. She later married Carl R. Schraufnagel on December 26, 1987 in Juneau. This union added three more children to her family; Carl Joe, James, and Matthew.
Nancy was a 4-H leader with the Oak Grove Owls 4-H Club, where her children were involved and she taught cooking and photography. After her children grew up and left the house she became involved in many other things. Nancy was a member of the Beaver Dam Lake Improvement Association for more than 20 years, where she served as chairperson and organizer of kid’s fish-n-fun and she was the Parliamentarian. She thoroughly enjoyed being a lifetime member of the Juneau Rod & Gun Club where she was the lead instructor for Hunter Safety. There are many other instructors that helped her with four classes each year. Nancy was a lifetime member and was very involved with WHEIA, where she was active in helping with the Kids Expo. Nancy also helped with the St. John’s Annual Picnic for over 40 years, and was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary where she served as vice-president for two years and then president on the 2nd District Board. She also served as Vice President of the Dodge County Council for two terms and president for two years. Nancy belonged to District 2 and served on the Ways & Means Committee, and served as chairman of Children and Youth. She really enjoyed working on the St. Jude’s Kids project, where she delivered items to children in Memphis, TN. Veterans and soldiers were very special to Nancy. Her daughter and grandson are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Nancy was proud to be a strong Republican and a member of the party, as well as a member and parliamentarian of the Women’s Party of Dodge County. One of her greatest joys was becoming Dodge County Coordinator for Ron Johnson when he ran for Senate.
