Betty J. Wisnefske, age 85 of the Town of Larrabee, Waupaca County, passed away peacefully Sunday evening September 18, 2022 at the ThedaCare Medical Center in Shawano.
Betty Jane Lydia Bucholtz was born on June 22, 1937 in New London as the daughter of the late Clarence and Lydia (Jaeger) Bucholtz. Betty graduated from New London High School with the Class of 1955 and was united in marriage to Gerald Wisnefske on August 22, 1959 at the Emanuel Lutheran Church in New London. The couple made their home on a farm just outside of Clintonville and Betty worked for the Wisconsin Telephone Company in Appleton until 1961 when she began working for Dairyman’s State Bank in Clintonville. As faithful members of St. Martin Lutheran Church in Clintonville, Betty spent 25 years as the church’s financial secretary and enjoyed volunteering wherever needed. She would often take time to curl up with a good book or knit afghans and enjoyed traveling the country with Gerald over the years. Betty was a Green Bay Packer fan, loved animals, was great at decorating for the different seasons, enjoyed making ceramics, and looked forward to her walks around their property checking on the wildflowers and woods.
Survivors include: Her Husband: Gerald.
A Sister-in-law: Janice Herm.
Also numerous wonderful nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and neighbors who were always there when needed with love and support.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents and her brother-in-law Ronald Herm.
Betty’s funeral service will be held Thursday September 22, 2022 at 12pm at the St. Martin Lutheran Church in Clintonville with Rev. Jason Zobel officiating. Interment will follow at the Graceland Cemetery also in Clintonville. Friends may call at the church on Thursday from 10am until the time of the service. Her family would like to thank the caring staff at ThedaCare in Shawano as well as their cousins, friends, and neighbors for all of their help and support during Betty’s illness. God bless you all. The Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory of Clintonville is assisting her family.
