Theresia Maria Wack Notice
Wack, Theresia Maria In the early morning hours of September 5th, Theresia Maria Wack arrived at her final destination, her heavenly home. Her journey was an arduous trek from South-Eastern WWII Europe to the US. Theresia was born in Jarek (present Yugoslavia) to her parents Theresia Wack, nee Scheer, and Michael Wack. She is survived by her cousin Helmut Wack (Margreth), of Germany, her lifelong friend Hannelore, and many good friends. Theresia started her college studies at Mainz University (Germany), received her teaching degree from Mount Mary, and continued her studies at Marquette and Georgetown. Her interests centered on History, Theology, and Education. She made teaching for the Milwaukee School system her career; first teaching at Audubon JH and then until her retirement in 1990 at Custer HS. Theresia enjoyed reading, traveling (particularly cruising), and doing volunteer work. She was known to her friends for her extensive knowledge, quick humor, and playing "devil's advocate" in any debate. She was a lifelong learner and seeker, an advocate of education, and a charitable giver. Heartfelt thanks go out to Father John Yockey and the dedicated staff at AngelsGrace who helped to give her spiritual and physical comfort during her last days. Funeral services will be held on Friday, September 21 at St. Jerome Catholic Church (995 Silver Lake St, Oconomowoc, WI 53066). Visitation will be from 10:00AM to 11:00AM, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial. Memorials may be directed to AngelsGrace (W359 N743 Brown St, Oconomowoc) or to St. Jerome's Mortgage Fund.
