Carl Pfeiffer has transferred his membership to Memorial from Lake Edge UCC on the east side. For many years – from the mid-1950s to the late 1980s – Carl was a science teacher at Monona Grove High School. With his fellow teachers, he pioneered new ways of teaching science that integrated all the various scientific disciplines.
He and his wife, now deceased, had four children. He now lives in Stoughton and enjoys spending his summers at the family cabin near Eagle River, just a stone’s throw from the UCC camp at Moon Beach.
He has a particular passion for exploring the meaning of faith in his life and in our world.
Heather and Jason Leiber have been married for almost 12 years. They grew up and met in Green Bay, and were married at the Presbyterian church there. Heather grew up Catholic, Jason grew up Protestant. Their two daughters are Amelia, who is 8 and in second grade, and Avery, who is 22 months old.
Jason works part time at Stoughton hospital as a respiratory therapist. The rest of the time, he is – in Heather’s words – “a fantastic stay at home dad and cook.” Heather works full time (plus) as a physician assistant at the UW in vascular surgery. She is a 2004 grad of UW.
And what about their spare time? What’s that, asks Heather. They enjoy movies and eating out, Jason makes really good beer and is active at the gym. Heather says she occasionally gets to sleep.
They say they are excited to join a community to reaffirm their faith and introduce their children to this community.
