Joan Angeline Wanta (nee Welch) age 88 years passed away on Sunday April 4, 2021 at home. She was born on November 6, 1932 in Beaver Dam to Irving and Gertrude (nee Bukowski ) Welch. Joan married Ted H. Wanta on September 28, 1963 in Beaver Dam. The couple eventually moved to Milwaukee and then settled in West Bend where they lived for over fifty years. Joan was employed at Monarch Range in Beaver Dam then worked at Kohl’s Department Store in West Bend for 20 years.

Joan was a devoted mother, grandmother and a loving wife for 56 years. She enjoyed flowers, gardening, traveling and spending time with her family. Priceless memories were made at Lake Puckaway for numerous summers.

Joan is survived by her children Debra (Peter) Oberg, Linda Starr (Tim Giese) and Susan Sciachitano (Jay), grandchildren Megan Starr, Luke Oberg and Bella Sciachitano, and many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ted and brother George Welch and many other beloved family members.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 5:00pm on Friday April 16th at St Frances Cabrini Catholic Church (1025 S 7th Ave West Bend) with Fr. Carlos Londono presiding. Visitation will be at the church on Friday from 3:00pm until 4:45 pm. Interment will take place at St Katherine Cemetery N6791 County Rd G in Beaver Dam on Saturday at 10:00am.

Pretty in pink is how she will be remembered by all. We would like to thank Kim and Lisa and all the other wonderful people who took care of and loved her dearly.

My sympathy to the family at this time. I was always grateful to have the Wanta family in my neighborhood. Whenever I needed a babysitter, Joan always saw to it that one of her darling girls was available. I remember Joan always walked and had a friendly smile for everyone.
