William Donald Brice

William “Bill” Donald Brice, 92, passed away unexpectedly on Friday December 5, 2008, at St. Monica’s Senior Citizens Home.

He was born in Raymond Center on March 5, 1916, the son of Sherman and Matilda (nee: Christensen) Brice. Bill was united in marriage to Dawn Ellen Schuette in Racine at Holy Communion Lutheran Church in 1940.

He was employed at Racine Unified School System with various grade schools throughout his teaching career, retiring after 40 years of dedicated service. Bill, along with his wife Dawn, raised and showed Cocker Spaniels for many years and was actively involved in both the American Spaniel Club and Fancier’s Cocker Spaniel Club of Southern Wisconsin, where he formerly held the title of president.

Bill is survived by his daughter, Dawna (Robert) Newby of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Paul and Dorothy Schuette, along with devoted friends Char and Bob Rowland. He is further survived by other relatives and many dear friends. Bill lived a long and happy life and will be in our hearts forever.
