Sept. 29, 1928 - Nov. 22, 2019
Frances “Fran” Lucille (Haun) Neuberger passed away peacefully at Park Manor in Park Falls on Nov. 22, 2019. She was 91. Fran was born Sept. 29, 1928. She was one of five children born to George and Anna (Kronberger) Haun, and her early life and schooling were in Butternut. She met her husband Edward “Ed” George Neuberger at a dance, and they were married on June 26, 1946. She and Ed homesteaded a dairy farm north of Butternut. They had the last of their six children in 1967. Fran began working as a health and special education aide at the Glidden School that same year and enjoyed her work there for over 30 years. She moved from her farm to Flambeau Heights in Park Falls in 2007 and leaves behind many friends that were made during her time there. She loved reading, a good Western movie, and spending time with her family.
She is survived by six children: Carol (Jim) Neuberger of Woodruff, Joseph (Mary) Neuberger of Green Bay, Elaine (Paul) Kallinen of Iron River, Marilyn Hanson of Park Falls, Nick (Julie) Neuberger of Chetek, and Edward (Linda) Neuberger of Lodi; and her brother, Jim (Agnes) Haun of Sparta.
Fran had 13 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren — each one special in their own way, according to her — and she loved them all unconditionally. As a result, they all think they’re her favorite, and the debate will continue even after her passing. She is further survived by many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Edward in 1995; two brothers: John and Art Haun; and two sisters: Ida Woody and Bertha Romanowich.
Funeral services were held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Butternut on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Fr. Shaji Pazhukkathara officiated.
Interment will follow at St. Cecelia Catholic Cemetery in Butternut.
Novitzke-Birch Street Funeral Service is assisting the family.
