Lisa J. Wille Lisa Jean (Prokupek) Wille, 46, died Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012, at UW-Madison Hospital as a result of leukemie.
Visitation was one hour before services at the church.
Funeral services were Saturday, Sept. 8, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Viroqua, Wis.
A private burial will be held in Cadott, Wis. at a later date with a celebration of her life to follow.
Lisa was born Aug. 1, 1966, in Chippewa Falls, Wis., daughter of Lloyd and Leona Prokupek. She attended Cadott Public Schools, graduating in 1985. She moved to the LaCrosse area, working for Fleming Companies. During that time she returned to college at UW-LaCrosse earning a degree in Human Resource Management in 2000. For the past 11 years, Lisa was employed as the LaCrosse County Benefits Coordinator. Lisa met the love of her life and married Dennis Wille on July 22, 2006,They became parents to Sawyer Grant Wille on April 19, 2011. Lisa’s pride and joy was her little boy. Though her time was short by our standards, she made every moment count in raising their son. Lisa enjoyed life to the max. She made friends wherever she went. She was looked upon as a role model by many, especially her young co-workers at the Stockyard. That second job she took on as “The Fun Job” became a backbone of support for her. LISASTRONG bands can be seen throughout the community and helped with Sawyers needs while in the hospital. They were not only a fund-raiser in Lisa’s cause, but a symbol of what she represented. She worked hard and she played hard. She loved riding her three horses with friends, camping trips with her siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, spending time on the water whether on a pontoon or canoe. Lisa especially loved spending time on the family farm, milking cows and doing whatever was in need on the farm. Her zest and rewards of the simple things in life was second to none. Lisa leaves a big void for many people but she also would expect us to move forward and continue on with our lives, knowing that someday we will be together again in Heaven. Lisa, above all, taught us how to live.
Lisa is survived by her husband, Dennis; son, Sawyer; parents, Lloyd and Leona Prokupek and in-laws, Ray and Laura Wille. Lisa is further survived by her siblings, Lorraine (Mike) Berget, Lloyd Prokupek, Lucy (Bob) Peloquin-Ross, Lynda Shimko, Larry (Lori) Prokupek, Laurie (Dean) Hitz. Lisa also had one sister-in-law, Nancy Parker. Lisa was affectionately known as Sassie to her nieces and nephews, Angie, Katie, Melissa Berget, Tiffany, Jennifer Hakes, Abby, Agnes Prokupek, Alex, Ben Shimko, MaryJo, McKenzie Prokupek, Bowmann Ammans, Brayden, Trenten Hitz, Trent, Trevor, Trey and Taylor Roehlk.
