Jerry William Frank of Osceola, died peacefully in his sleep at his home on Jan. 22, 2019, following a 10 month battle with cancer. He was 84.

 Jerry was born Nov. 28, 1934, in Dresser to Elmer and Helen (Peterson) Frank.  He was a graduate of St. Croix Falls High School.  In 1954, Jerry married a good Osceola girl by the name of Doris Wies and they had four sons and one daughter.  Jerry worked as a sheet metal journeyman until his retirement.  Hunting, camping, and fishing were just some of his passions.  After his first wife passed away, Jerry met a beautiful lady named Vivian Folz.  They were not meant for the single life so they married and her son and daughter were added to the Frank family.  He would say the more the merrier and that they were a true blessing in his life.  Jerry later met and married Jeanine Steitler.  After her death, Jerry moved back to Osceola.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents and three wives, Doris, Vivian, and Jeanine. 

He is survived by his children, Michael (Michele) Frank, Gary (Dorene) Frank, Connie (Bryan) Basham, Scott (Colleen) Frank, Jon (Jenifer) Frank; step-children, Jim (Jill) Folz and Dawn Folz; 19 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren; also nieces, nephews, very special friend and companion, Dianna, and the crew at the Third Avenue Apartments.

 Funeral services were Jan. 28 at Osceola United Methodist Church.
