Obituary

Esther M. Wenzel, age 97, of Janesville, died Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020, at Oak Park Place. She was born in Staples, MN, on March 9, 1923, the daughter of the late Ernest and Minnie (Halliday) Burnard. Esther married Richard C. “Red” Wenzel at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Janesville. He preceded her in death on June 15, 2014. She has been a long-time member of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and cherished the time spent enjoying a good meal at the Eagle Inn after worship services. When the children were young, Esther was active in PTA and school activities. She collected Franklin Mint Dolls and miniature birds, loved being outside caring for her yard and watching the birds. While living in Starview Heights, Mom enjoyed bike rides & walks with her neighborhood friend up the hill. And after Dad couldn’t mow the yard any longer, Mom took over & was mowing every other day whether it needed it or not. This continued until she was 93! Her family will always remember how she was a wonderful provider for the entire family!

Survivors include her 2 children, Sandra (Gordon) Christensen and Bradley (Kelly) Wenzel both of Janesville; 6 grandchildren: Troy (Beth) Christensen, Tami Watters, Amanda Wenzel, Jessy Molter, Chad (Melissa) Dillenberg, and Paula Petraski; 5 great grandchildren: Kaylee Petraski, Brady and Allison Dillenberg, Taylor Watters, and Teagan Wenzel; and 2 bonus great grandchildren, Zach Boardman and Tanner Pearson. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; a daughter, Kathleen Van Caster; 5 sisters: Inez Drake, Mildred Burkhow, Hazel Carter, June Fairley, and Bernice Olson.

Funeral services will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22, 2020 at MT. CALVARY LUTHERAN CHURCH, Janesville. Pastor David Bergelin will officiate and interment will be in Milton Lawns Memorial Park. Visitation will be held on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until the hour of service at MT. CALVARY LUTHERAN CHURCH.

You will be missed, Aunt Esther! You lived a long life full of giving! My earliest memory of you is when we would drive from Oregon to visit you and Grandma Burnard. You always took such good care of grandma and saw to it that she had everything that she needed. Then you went on to raise a a beautiful and loving family. You were always there for everyone when they needed you! Your long marriage to Uncle Dick and dedication to your church show your true character and I applaud and love you for just who you were! Your sisters await you as God beings you home!
