Barbara Eleanor Bannach Mader

Barbara passed away at 10:29 a.m. June 17, 2018. She gave great joy to her family and friends and wanted to share her last word to us directly:

Barbara Mader wishes to thank her parents, Amel and Catherine Bannach, for their gift of life to her and her sisters Judy, Andrea (deceased), and Peggy. We four sisters loved exploring the woods and fields surrounding our farm home at the end of Deer Road east of Custer. Our home was filled with music and books, and our dogs, cats, and horses were a source of companionship and delight even as we helped harvest hay, potatoes, beans, and cucumbers.

I graduated from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1960 and taught second grade in Appleton Public Schools until marriage to Mark Mader in 1964 at St. Mary’s in Custer. In 1965, we moved to Plymouth, where I taught two more years before our children, Eric and Heidi, were born. Later, I taught in my parish school, St. John the Baptist, for 24 years.
