Ted H. Wanta, age 82, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 25th. He was born on June 28th, 1936 to Minnie and Leo Wanta, in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Ted served in the United States Army Reserves. After serving, he traveled around Wisconsin and met his wife Joan, and they married in Beaver Dam on September 28th, 1963. They eventually moved to Milwaukee, and then settled in West Bend where they lived for over fifty years. He worked for Badger Packaging for over thirty years, finally retiring to pursue his great love of fishing, hunting, golfing, bowling, volleyball, and being a casino card dealer.

He is survived by his wife Joan “Joanie”, children Debra (Peter) Oberg, Linda Starr, Sue (Jay) Sciachitano; grandchildren Megan Starr, Luke Oberg, Bella Sciachitano, a brother Ronald Wanta of Los Angeles, Ca. Further survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

My condolences to Ted's family, especially his wife Joan and daughter Sue. Ted was part of our group of dealers that car-pooled to casino-night events.

My sympathy goes out to the entire family. I will always remember the time I spent with Joan and Ted when I worked at Kohls a couple of years ago Heaven gained another Angel. Love to Joan and the family from Gerri Matenaer

Please accept this sincere note of sympathy regarding the passing of your beloved, Ted. I'm sure that he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. May the 'God of All comfort' embrace you and bring to your mind joyful memories of Ted. I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the scriptures and reflecting on God's promise of the resurrection, something that has been a real source of comfort. Scriptures that give me hope are: John 5:28,29, John 6:40, Psalms 37:29, and Revelation 21:4. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Ted again, alive on Earth in perfect health and in peaceful conditions? I warmly invite you to visit to find even more comfort from God's word. Best wishes to your family.
