Barbara Lasek, age 62, of Mc- Farland passed away Thursday, June 12, 2014, at Agrace Hospice Care.

Barb was a free spirit. After graduating from Plymouth High School in 1970, she became a certified occupational therapy assistant at MATC. She worked in the field for a while before branching out to other jobs sufficient to allow her to take long vacations in the north woods. She settled into state employment in Unemployment Insurance, Safety and Buildings, and the Commerce Department.

In her free time she did respite care with handicapped children, practiced martial arts, bow hunted, picked wild mushrooms, golfed, and hung out with friends.

After retiring, she worked as the “cat lady” at Remember Me Ranch and fostered orphaned baby squirrels.

She is survived by her mother, Helen Horneck; sisters, Shirley (Bryan) Herman and Phyllis (David) Lee; brothers, Wayne Lasek and Edward (Julie) Lasek; and other family members.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 21, at Cress Funeral Home in McFarland.

Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until the time of services Saturday.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Four Lakes Wildlife Center.

Cress Funeral Service (608-838-0655), 5801 State 51, McFarland, WI 53558 is serving the family.
