Hacker, Jennifer A. (Wickman)
Jennifer Ann (Wickman) Hacker, age 40, of Bonduel, passed away on Thursday, May 26, 2016, after a courageous battle with colon cancer. Jennifer was born in Green Bay on January 1, 1976 to Randy and Barbara (Schultz) Wickman. She was known to have a "stubborn streak", which was never more evident than, watching her maintain a positive attitude, during her five year battle with cancer. Jenny loved to "pay it forward" and was a big supporter of other cancer survivors. She enjoyed playing volleyball in her youth and recently refereed for several years. In her free time, Jenny enjoyed shooting darts in a dart league as well as writing poetry and giving surprises to family and friends. Jenny also enjoyed spreading the Christmas spirit, and dressed up as one of Santa's elves for people in the community and for the people at the cancer center. Jenny loved her family and friends. She was a great mother, daughter, sister, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
Jenny is survived by: her children, Ashley (Caleb) Hudson and Bryce Hacker both of Bonduel; her parents, Randy and Barb Wickman of Bonduel; her sister and brother, Lisa (Jon Garderbrecht) Eccles of Shawano and Jonathan Wickman of Seymour; her grandparents, Albert (Janet) Wickman; her lifelong friend, Chanda (Sal) Oviedo of Shawano; her great niece Kaleigh Lily; as well as nieces, nephews, numerous other relatives and many, many friends.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Agnes (Meverden) Wickman, Mayford and Jane (Doughty) Schultz.
