Obituary

Bobbie Hannack, age 66, of Winter, Wisconsin died Wednesday at Marshfield Medical Center, Marshfield, Wisconsin.

Visitation for Bobbie will be on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 3-6 p.m. at Keehr Funeral Home in Spring Valley.

She was born October 7, 1955, in Viola, Minnesota to Geraldine (Ewy) and Rodney Richardson.  She was named after her paternal grandfather (Robert).  Bobbie is survived by her husband Gene, children: Amber (John) Kaeder, Jeremy (Nicole), and Jarrad (Laura); her beloved grandchildren: Brianna, Justin, Trevor, Kimberly-Ann, Parker, Skyler, Lilly, Caleb, and Andreya.  She is also survived by her siblings who were always there for each other no matter what part of the country they lived: her sisters: Debbie Mauro, Chrissy (Kenny) Johnson, and brother Ed (Terri) Richardson; in-laws: Delores (Lawrence) Hulback, Joyce (Butch) Wentlandt, Judy (Ron) Hoyt, and Gloria (Greg) Anderson, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Bobbie’s family moved to Spring Valley in 1971.  It was then that she met her future husband Gene Hannack.  She finished high school at Elmwood and graduated with the Class of 1973.  Later that year, on November 3, 1973, Gene and Bobbie were married at St. John’s Lutheran Church-Hatchville.  They recently celebrated 48 years of marriage.  They farmed several years together in Spring Lake Township.   She had worked at Western Life Insurance as an underwriter, at Coldwell Banker Realty selling homes, and also as a floral designer at Ben Franklin in Menomonie.

Bobbie was known for putting others before herself, helping out wherever she could. She enjoyed children, especially babies, she was able to accurately predict the sex of the babies to be.  She also picked out the names for several children.  Bobbie had many talents that came naturally to her, whether it was decorating, painting, or recordkeeping, she could do it all.  Her philosophy was: why pay someone when I can to do it myself (and she did).  She taught herself many crafts and home repair.  Her other passion became designing and building homes, which became a testament to her skills.

Her greatest source of pride was her grandchildren.  The love she has for them extends to the heavens above, leaving a lasting imprint on them all.  She always went out of her way to make sure she never hurt anyone.  She loved this country and The Constitution and it pained her to see what is happening to our country and the future of all our children and grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her sister Lorraine “Lorrie” in childhood; then she lost her mother Gerri at age 10, her father Rodney, her in-laws as well as maternal and paternal grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends.
