NEW HOLSTEIN, Wis. (WFRV) – A 23-year-old New Holstein Police Officer who was on medical leave and recently participated in the Shop with a Cop program has passed away.

The New Holstein Police Department announced that Officer Macullen Schnell passed away on Sunday, Dec. 26.

The Calumet County Sheriff’s Office also posted on Facebook saying that Schnell was a ‘special person that left us way too early’.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
