Martin L. Ploussard, of Pewaukee, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at Waukesha Memorial Hospital at the age of 88. He was born on September 7, 1933 in St. Louis, Missouri to Martin A. and Ruth (nee Burkhart) Ploussard. After graduating from St. Louis University, he married the late Joanne (nee Korman) Ploussard on June 6, 1959. Over the years, with his degree in marketing in hand, his sales territory changes took the family to Bloomington, Minnesota and Homewood, Illinois before making Pewaukee their home to more closely follow their grandson’s progression into adulthood. They never missed a game, musical production, or a graduation. He was a devout Catholic, member of and active volunteer for St. Anthony on the Lake Catholic Church in Pewaukee.
Marty is survived by his loving daughter, Linda (Tim) Cooney, his grandsons Brian (fiancé Jazzelle Peters) Cooney, and James (Margaret Davison) Cooney. His great-grandsons Owen and Silas Cooney and many friends, neighbors and fellow parishioners.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his beloved wife Joanne.
The family sends a special thank you to the staff of the Heart Care Unit and ICU Unit of Waukesha Memorial Hospital for their exceptional care, along with the many doctors who assisted with his care.
