Obituary for Helen Wenzel

Helen Wenzel
HELEN L. “BUNNY” WENZEL age 81 of Jefferson passed away surrounded by her family Tuesday May 2, 2017 at her home. She was born on July 14, 1935 in Jefferson County, to Edwin and Louise (Habel) Woodward. She married Glenn “Pete” Wenzel on February 5, 1955 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jefferson; he preceded her in death on August 22, 2010.
Bunny was a homemaker who took great pride in her marriage and in raising her family. She made everyone feel welcome in her home and excelled as hostess and chef.
She was a passionate fan of Frank Sinatra, the Packers and NASCAR, especially when cheering Matt Kenseth on to victory. She so enjoyed watching her grandsons play and succeed in high school sports. Bun loved traveling to St. Germaine every June with her large extended family. She would relish the pontoon rides, taking her ever-aging grandkids to the casino for a brief "lesson” and revel in the simple family times that provide us with so many happy memories today. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran church in Jefferson.
Bunny will be deeply missed by her family; daughters Vickie (Terry Schlick) Wenzel-Schlick of Black Earth, Sue (Jeff) Viola of Johnson Creek. Son Kevin (Tania) Wenzel of Jefferson. Six grandchildren; Michael Schlick, Jeremy Schlick, Ben (Alina) Schlick, Brett Wenzel, Mitchel Wenzel, and Wesley Viola. One great grandson Kaiden Schlick. Mother-in-law Elaine Wenzel of Johnson Creek. Sister Judy Waldmann of Jefferson. Nieces, nephews and other relatives and many friends. Special friends Mary B & Pat T.
Bunny is further survived by her sister in law and dear friend Suzie Vogel of Jefferson,
brother in law Don (Lila) Wenzel of Brookfield, and sister in laws Katherine Wenzel of Sullivan and Shirley McCormick of Whitewater.
She is also preceded in death by her son Peter Wenzel, and brothers Jerry Woodward, and Roger Woodward. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday May 5, 2017 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jefferson with the Rev. Matthew Krenke officiating burial will follow in the Rock River Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursday evening at the Schneider-Michaelis Funeral Home in Jefferson and then again at the church on Friday morning from 10:00-11:00 a.m. Memorial may be given in Bunny’s name to the Grace Notes at St. John’s.
