    Note

Most of the obituaries for the Wisconsin Liskas were only obtained through the help of Frank.  It would have been impossible for me to assemble much of the information listed here without his assistance.

Most of the information on the earliest Liskas was only obtained through the help of Larry.  It would have been impossible for me to discover that information through just the Internet.

        Ronald E. Melichar Aug. 17, 1937 - Sept. 5, 2014 LAFAYETTE - Retired Judge Ronald E. Melichar , 77, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Friday, September 5. He was born in Berwyn, IL, on August 17, 1937, to the late Edwin and Elsie Melichar . He grew up in South Bend, and graduated from Washington Clay High School in 1955. He matriculated at the University of Notre Dame, and graduated cum laude in 1959. Ron met his future wife and best friend, Beverly Godshalk, in 1954 and they were married on June 11, 1961. After graduating from Indiana University School of Law in 1963, he began his legal career in Delphi with the Obear and Overholser firm. During this time, he was the Young Republican Chairman in Carroll County. In 1967, he joined the practice of J. Frederick Hoffman in Lafayette, where he practiced until he was elected to the bench as Judge of the Tippecanoe Circuit Court in November, 1984. He served three consecutive terms before retiring at the end of 2002. Ron is survived by his wife, Beverly, and 4 children, Gretchen (Mike) Coffman, Naperville, IL; Jim Melichar , Ellettsville; Tom (Karen) Melichar , Rossville; and Jason (Amy) Melichar , Golden, CO. He is survived by 9 grandchildren: Matthew Coffman, Lauren Coffman, Devin Blackmore, Jaylon Bland, Abby Melichar , Andrew Davis- Melichar , Thomas Ronald Melichar , Holland Melichar and Jackson Melichar . Ron was affectionately known to his children and grandchildren as the 'Old Lion'. Also surviving are his twin brother Raymond Melichar , South Bend, and sister Janice (John) Linarello, South Bend. During a high school field trip to the St. Joseph county courthouse in South Bend, Ron had the insight to know that he wanted to attend law school and be a Judge. As a jurist, he was known for his pragmatic and even-handed approach to the law. Ron was also known for his no-nonsense courtroom demeanor, where he was committed to getting those before him on the right track. He always demonstrated a strong point of view, and was a champion for courthouse security. During his career, he was an avid Republican, Board Member of Friendship House, Board member of Clegg Botanical Garden Society and member of the Nature Conservancy, Elks, Town and Gown, and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Ron had a passion for reading and was a student of history, philosophy, and science. His hobbies included wood working and building model cars. He was also a lifelong (and at times, long-suffering) fan of Chicago sports teams. Ron loved his family and will be sorely missed by all, including his beloved dog, Max. As a dad, he provided his kids the freedom to explore and to learn through their mistakes, though he was always there to lend a hand when the dust settled. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Nature Conservancy and the Humane Association of your choice.

  Blosko Liska Arrived New York City, October 20, 1863 on the Ship Orpheus, with parents Tomas and Marie, brothers Michael and Wencel, and sister Mary.
  Katherine Holak was born in Wisconsin, the daughter of Thomas Holak and Mary Machachek.  Her paternal family Wenzel Holak and Mary Holak arrived in New York City, December 28, 1854. from Bremen on the ship Meta.  They arrived with their three children, Mary, Anna and Katherine's father, Thomas.
   "Blosko Liska, for many years a well-known resident of the Town of Greenwood, passed away here Sunday, October 3rd.  At the time of his death he had reached the age of eighty seven years, nine months and one day.  He had been in failing health for the past two years and during the last few days had been seriously ill........Burial will be in Champion Valley cemetery.  Blosko Liska was born in Bohemia on Feb. 2nd, 1856.  His early childhood was spent in that country.  In 1864 (actually 1863 ship registry shows), at the age of eight years, he came to the United States in the company of his parents.  The Liska family settled on a farm near Fort Dodge, Iowa, a region which at that time was a wild, and unbroken prairie.  There he came to know the rigors of pioneer life as he grew to young manhood and worked to develop the land. Later, Mr. Liska was employed as a farm hand and coal miner in Iowa and Minnesota.  He then came to Lodi, Wisconsin where he was employed for some time.  There and at his later home in this community, he established for himself a record of almost superhuman capacity for industrious activity which he continued until the later years of his life. Mr. Liska was married to Kate Holak, daughter of the late Thomas and Mary Holak of Champion Valley.  Their marriage took place in Richland Center on May 24, 1886.  To this union were born eleven children, three of whom passed away in infancy. Mr. and Mrs. Liska made their home on a farm in Greenwood township where they resided at the time of Mr. Liska's death.  They took and active interest in the welfare and progress of the community and through their neighborly manner won the regard and friendship of many who now mourn his death.  During the later years of his life, Mr. Liska seldom left his home, confining his interest to matters pertaining to farm life. He is survived by his Wife, Mrs. Kate Liska of Greenwood township, four daughters, Mrs Joseph Urban and Mrs. Charles Wesley of Callendar, Iowa; Mrs. William Rick of Wonewoc and Mrs. Carl Peterson of Yuba; four sons, Joseph Liska of Wilmington, Delaware, Captain Adolph Liska of the Air Transport Command , Jacksonville, Florida, William and Leo Liska of Yuba, fourteen grandchildren; two great grandchildren; one sister, Mrs. Slama of Callendar, Iowa.  Preceding him in death were three children who died in infancy, his father and mother; two brothers, James of Hillsboro and Mike of Callendar, Iowa....."
  "Mrs. Katherine Liska, 82, for many years a highly regarded and well known resident of the Town of Greenwood, passed away at four thirty o'clock, Wednesday afternoon, March 23, 1949 at her home in that township.  she had been in failing health for several years and in the past few weeks had been seriously ill.  ...... Katherine Holak, daughter of Thomas Holak and Mary Machacek Holak. was born November 26, 1866 in the Champion Valley community in Union Township, Vernon County, Wisconsin.  She attended the Champion Valley school and grew into young womanhood in that locality. She married Blosko Liska on May 24, 1886, the nuptial ceremony taking place at Richland Center.  Mr. and Mrs. Liska resided for a short while at Fort Dodge, Iowa.  Returning to Wisconsin, they established their home on a farm in the Town of Henrietta, Richland County where they lived for a number of years.  In the year 1909 they purchased a farm in Greenwood township which was to remain their home until the time of their death.  To Mr. and Mrs. Liska were born eleven children, eight of whom survive their parents and three of whom passed away in infancy.  Mr. Liska passed away October 3, 1943. During the years they resided in this community, Mr. and Mrs. Liska took and active and kindly interest in the welfare of other people and in the progress of the community.  Their neighborly helpfulness and thoughtful sincerity won the regard and friendship of many people who now mourn her death. Surviving Mrs. Liska are four daughters; Mrs. Martha Urban of Callendar, Iowa, Jennie (Mrs. Charles Wesley, also of Callendar, Iowa), Laura (Mrs. William Rick of Wonewoc) and Julia (Mrs. Carl Peterson of Beloit); four sons, William A.

Many precious memories of Mrs. Liska will ever remain in the hearts of those who were her associates and who now are saddened by her death.   There will be in many minds the picture of the very beautiful flowers which grew in profusion in her garden, a reflection of her love of beauty and an expression of friendship. Mrs. Liska will be remembered as one of the esteemed pioneers ladies of this community.  Her parents were among the earliest settlers in the Town of Union.  In her youth she experienced the hardships of those who cleared this land to create the new homes in what had been a wilderness.  Later she and Mr. Liska pioneers in another decade saw this region transformed from a wooded area to a modern progressive farming community......"

Liska, 68, a highly respected resident of the Fox Ridge community, Town of Greenwood, passed away suddenly at 3:30 pm Tuesday, May 21st, 1957 at the Emil Kaukl farm in the Town of Union.  He had apparently been in usual health and was building fence on the Kaukl farm when he was stricken with the fatal attack. ...................burial was in the Champion Valley cemetery. William Albert Liska, son of Blosko Liska and Katherine Holak Liska was born March 26, 1889 in the Town of Henrietta, Richland County, Wisconsin.  He attended the Peterson school and grew to young manhood in that community.  In the year 1909 the Liska family moved to the Fox Ridge community in the Town of Greenwood in which locality he continued to reside until the time of his death. He was married November 18, 1913 to Miss Tilda Janousek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Janousek also of Greenwood.  The wedding ceremony took place at Hillsboro.  Mr. and Mrs. Liska established their home on a farm on Fox Ridge, where they have resided the past forty-four years. Surviving Mr. Liska are his wife, Mrs. Tilda Liska of Greenwood township; two daughters, Thelma (Mrs. Eugene Rosynek) and Bessie (Mrs. Rudolph Lein), both of Milwaukee; three brothers, Joseph and Leo of Yuba and Adolph of Los Angeles, California; four sisters, Martha (Mrs. Joseph Urban of Callendar, Iowa), Laura (Mrs. William Rick of Hillsboro),  Jennie (Mrs. Charles Wesley of Moorland, Iowa) and Julia, (Mrs. Carl Peterson of Beloit, Wisconsin);  many other relatives and a large number of friends.   He was preceded in death by one son, Joseph, who died in infancy; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Blosko Liska; two sisters and one brother who died in infancy. In the sudden and unexpected death of Mr. Liska, this locality deeply mourns the loss of a fine man of high character, sincerity and integrity, who was widely known and held in great esteem throughout this area.  He was a leader in his community, with a very genuine interest in civic and fraternal activities and in all those endeavors that made for the progress and betterment of the locality and which was of positive value to all citizens. For several years he served as a member of the Peterson School Board and during that time was District Clerk.  His successive election to that office was indicative of his excellent administration and of the good will and confidence of the electors.  Mr. Liska was a member of the ZCBG Lodge.  For many years he was a member of the Fox Ridge Band, a fine community musical organization that had often been featured at many festive events in this area. Those who know him best will also remember Mr. Liska for his great devotion to his family, his unfailing kindness and thoughtful consideration for every associate.  He was a loyal friend and an excellent neighbor who generously and willingly offered every assistance possible whenever there was need.  The memory of his pleasant personality, many kindnesses and helpful guidance will ever be an inspiration in treasured remembrance to all those who so deeply mourn his death. Those who came from far away to attend the funeral of Mr. Liska were Mrs. Martha Urban, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wesley, Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Field and daughter Kathleen, Mrs. Laura Campbell, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Liska and son Louis, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Liska and Mr.. and Mrs. Clarence Liska all from Fort Dodge, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. Adolph C.

Kiely 83, of Stuart, Iowa, a highly esteemed former resident of the Hillsboro community, passed away Friday, Mary 2, 1969 at the Guthrie County (Iowa) Hospital, following an illness of sixteen months duration. Funeral services were held Monday, May 5th, in the First Congregational Church at Stuart, Iowa.  The Reverend George Thurman officiated at the services.  Interment was in the South Oak Grove Cemetery. Emma Liska, daughter of Wencle Liska and Antonie Kaukl Liska, was born July 24, 1885 in the Town of Henrietta, Richland County, Wisconsin. Miss Liska went to Stuart Iowa in the year 1912.  She owned the Liska Hat Shop and also did dressmaking until about 1937. She was married October 4, 1926 to Joseph M. Kiely.  The wedding ceremony took place at Casey, Iowa. Survivors include five sisters, Clara (Mrs. Jesse R. McQueen) of Wyocena, Wisconsin, Mary (Mrs. Frank Hansbery of Hillsboro), Lucie (Mrs. Edward Schiller of Hillsboro), Miss Matilda Liska and Miss Elsie Liska, both of Milwaukee; two brothers, Edwin Liska of Cudahy, Wisconsin and Arnold Liska of Fedhaven, Florida; other relatives, neighbors and a host of friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph M. Kiely; her parents, Mr. and Mrs.Wencl Liska; one sister, Mrs. Anna Geiger; and five brothers, Frank, Joseph, William, Robert and Charles Liska. Mrs. Kiely had been a member of the First Congregational Church at Stuart, Iowa since April 4, 1920.  She had been active in the Women's Fellowship and had served on various committees within the church.  She was very devoted t her spiritual convictions and community affiliations and was ever helpful to other people. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary in Stuart and had served as president of that organization.  She was also a member and had served as chaplain of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of the 13th Engineers, Railroad Division with which her husband was affiliated and in which he served during World War 1.  (The 13th traces its lineage to the Civil War, through the Philippine Insurrection of 1882, and the Santiago campaign of 1898. On July 13, 1917, the number thirteen first appeared on the Army’s roster of Engineer units, when the 3rd Engineers were re-designated the 13th Engineer Railroad Regiment. Ten days later the regiment sailed for France, and into history, as the unit received its first campaign streamer in the Meuse-Argonne Campaign of World War I. In April, 1919, after the Armistice, the regiment returned to the States, and was deactivated the following month.) Mrs. Kiely was also very active in the Garden Club, the Rock Island Club and in other civic organization for many years. Mrs. Kiely will be remembered here a a member of a well known and influential pioneer family of this area which has long been identified with the history of the Hillsboro locality. The death of Mrs. Kiely has brought deep sadness to all who shared in her associations, in every community where she had resided. The memory of her pleasant manner, her kindness and many good deeds through which she contributed in important measure to the happiness and welfare of others will ever be treasured in remembrance of those who now so greatly mourn her death."
