In Memory of Barbara Seeger
Barbara Anne Seeger, 85, of Turtle Lake passed away on Friday, August 30, 2019, at Cambridge Assisted Living in Rice Lake. She was born November 18, 1933, in Cumberland, WI to Edward and Anne (Snow) Leisz. She graduated from Turtle Lake High School in 1951. She was married in Turtle Lake on September 4, 1954, to Herby Seeger.
During the first 25 years of their marriage, Barb worked as a secretary and bookkeeper at the Turtle Lake High School. She also worked on the family farm in Prairie Farm with Herb from 1954 until 1996. In the spring of 1996, Barb and Herb retired and moved back to Barb's home town of Turtle Lake.
Barb and Herb had many opportunities to travel with the family to Yellow Stone, Tennessee, the Bahamas, Portland, Seattle, California, Branson, and several other locations.
Barb enjoyed spending her free time baking, reading, and spending quality time with her family. She spent many holidays and Sundays hosting family gatherings with delicious meals made with love and care. Barb made a point to go to as many of her children and grandchildren's sporting events as she could. She was even known to keep her own score sheet while watching their games.
Barb enjoyed the times she spent with her daughters and (especially) her sister having coffee, going to the casino, shopping, having lunch, and getting into trouble together.
She is survived by her husband, Herb of Turtle Lake; son, Herby (Lynette) Seeger of Rice Lake; daughters, Kathryn (Daniel) Hubbard of Almena, Sandra (Kevin) Hoffman of Almena; 10 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; sister, Delsa Ritchie of Turtle Lake; nieces, nephews, and many other family and friends. Barb was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Anne Leisz; brother, James Leisz; sister-in-law, Beverly Mullarky; and brother-in-law, Doug Ritchie.
