Lucille Antonette Wiedbrauk

SCHOFIELD, Wis. - Lucille Antonette Wiedbrauk, 82, gained her wings and passed away peacefully on July 24 at Copperleaf Memory Care with her family by her side.

She was born on July 6, 1938 in Kimball to the late Anton and Lucy (Canalia) Merconti. After attending high school, on April 12, 1958 she married the love of her life Forrest L. Wiedbrauk. They enjoyed nearly 55 years together. He preceded her in death.

Lucille had various jobs throughout her life. She enjoyed gardening and canning. One thing she loved the most was spending time and caring for her family. She also enjoyed cooking for holidays and family celebrations in which you never left the table hungry.

Lucille will be missed by her sons, Forrest and Don Wiedbrauk; her daughter, Joy (Dave) Trombley; her grandchildren, Heather (Mickey) Francis, Sheila Elj, Travis (Derika) Wiedbrauk, Casandra Utecht (Mark), Sheldon (Krystal) Wiedbrauk and Forrest Wiedbrauk, as well as several great grandchildren.

We find comfort in knowing that her spirit was welcomed by her beloved husband Forrest; her son Ronald, her parents, her brother John and all other family and friends who have passed before her and who loved her as much as us.

Due to the current pandemic, the family has decided to do a celebration of life at a later date.

Cremation services will be conducted by Mid-Wisconsin Cremation Services.
