In Memory of James Weisenberger

July 28, 1931 - April 14, 2020

James “Jim” Marcus Weisenberger, 88 of Ladysmith, died on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at Ladysmith Care Community. We all remember Jim as a loving son, husband, father, brother and friend to all. Moreover, he was a man of great integrity, generosity, entrepreneurial spirit and a smile that shined brighter than a full moon!

He is survived by his wife, Audrey; five children (Doug (Kim) of Oregon; Mary (Ben) of Onalaska; Sue of Chippewa Falls; Michele (Miguel) of Hickory, NC; Bob (Cindi) of Eau Claire, and daughter-in-law Nikki of Ladysmith); 12 grandchildren (Jeff (Jazmin), Katie (Tom), Zach (Mercedes), Ryan, Marcus (Veronica), Joe, Kate, Luke, Lizzy, Julia, Jack, and Owen); 2 great-grandchildren (Gideon and Isabelle); and 6 siblings (Margaret of Brookfield; Mary Kay of De Pere; Jeanette of Austin, TX; Barbara of Bloomington, MN; John “Jack” of Fall Creek; and George of Arcadia). Jim’s parents Martha Elizabeth and Ralph Nicolas, his son Mike, and his siblings Phyllis, Eileen, Joe, and Ralph await him in Heaven.

A burial was held at Riverside Cemetery on Saturday, April 18 for immediate family only. A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows in the future (when we can gather and celebrate as a community safely). We very much look forward to hearing your stories when we celebrate Jim’s amazing life. The Weisenberger family extends their sincerest thanks for your prayers, thoughts, kindness and support during this unprecedented time in history. A special shout out to Ladysmith Care Community employees for their loving care, patience, humor and kindness provided for so many years.
