Meredith ‘Moody’ Plunkett, age 85, of Waupaca, passed away Monday, February 27, 2012, in Chief-land, Florida. Moody was born August 21, 1926, the son of Meredith and Maude Plunkett. Upon retirement from his catering business, Moody spent his summers on Spencer Lake, where he was an accomplished fisherman. Once the snowflakes started falling, Moody, and his wife Bonnie, headed south – where they enjoyed the winters, with family, in Florida. Moody is survived by his wife of 59 years, Bonnie Rae (Ramseyer) Plunkett; son, Scott Moody Plunkett (Barbara); daughters, Meredee Rae Plunkett, and Rebecca Malee Tyson (Steve); son, Casey McKay Plunkett (Deb); his grandchildren, Steven Corey Tyson (Amanda), Ryan Douglas Tyson (Mary Beth), Nathan Scott Plunkett (Galina), Jeremy Daniel Plunkett, Zachary Kyle Tyson, Meghan Starr Plunkett, Matthew Chase Tyson, McKenna Rae Plunkett, and Shaun McKay Plunkett; and great-grandchildren, Elizabeth Corey Tyson, John David Tyson and Brennan Maxwell Tyson. Moody was preceded in death by his infant son, Corey McKay Plunkett; his father, Meredith DePauw Plunkett, and his brother, David Melancthon Plunkett. Closer than “peanut butter and jelly”, Moody and David were partners in Plunkett Brothers Catering, from which they served thousands of events, in metropolitan Milwaukee, over four decades. Passionately committed to Christ, Moody (sax) and Bonnie (vocalist/pianist/songwriter) blessed many people over the years with their musical talents. Moody was not only a “Fisher of Men” but a Fisherman! Residents of Spencer Lake marveled at how he consistently came to shore with a full stringer of fish. He was a “regular” in the Waupaca Post, posing with his trophies. As a family, we marveled at how well mom cooked those fish! Moody was a great storyteller: his family and friends will sorely miss his campfire tales of growing up in Milwaukee and Chicago, along with the memorable events throughout his catering career. There was a Memorial at Spencer Lake Camp, on Friday, March 2, at 2:00 p.m. followed by interment at Spencer Lake Memorial Park. A broader Celebration of Moody’s life is planned for July, 2012. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers and phone calls these last two weeks. Assisting the family with arrangements is the Maple Crest Funeral Home of Waupaca.
