    Notes 
    • Joe was the only Niesl boy to have gone on to college. After college and the service, he and Gloria moved out to California and worked for the Walt Disney studios. Gloria became homesick, so they moved back to Wisconsin.

      Happy then worked for MATC as an art instructor. There is now an art scholarship at MATC named after him.
