Gloria F. Woock, 82, died peacefully and surrounded by family on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020, at Prairie Ridge of Beaver Dam.
Gloria Fay was born on January 24, 1938, in Fox Lake to Louis and Hazel (Arndt) Pollesch.
She graduated from Horicon High School in 1956 and married Kenneth Woock on September 1, 1956.
Together, they raised five daughters on a dairy farm outside of Burnett. She also worked for Waldvogel’s Farm Market, drove truck for Bullseye Industries, and was a devoted member of her church, St. Stephen Evangelical Lutheran Church of Horicon.
Family was very important to Gloria, and she cherished her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She and Ken loved Sunday drives, and they both loved to travel to Arizona where she watched her beloved Brewers play in spring training.
Gloria is survived by her husband of 64 years, Ken; her children, Karline (Leonard) Verch of Green Lake, Kristine (Ralph) Koehler of Waupun, Kimberly Woock-Braun of Horicon, and Kendra (Timothy) Hayden of Madison; 11 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren; her siblings, Shari (Jerry) Pesch-Wesolowski, Jeannine Paul, Carol (John) Cate, Lynn (Bobby) Pollesch, Rochelle (Jan) Seering, Rodger (Shari) Pollesch, Darryl (Dorothy) Pollesch, Kenneth (LaDean) Pollesch, and Janice (Jon) Downs. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her daughter Karen Karel and son-in-law Richard Karel; four siblings, Loren Pollesch, Marilyn Spindler, Gaya Mittelstadt-Pollesch, and Dean Pollesch; many other relatives; and friends.
A private family graveside service will take place at Highland Memory Gardens in the Township of Trenton with the Rev. Daniel Seehafer officiating.
The family suggests that memorials be made in Gloria Woock’s name to St. Stephen Evangelical Lutheran Church.
