Nancy (Sabatke) Berger

Nancy (Sabatke) Berger entered the kingdom of God on December 18, 2019, while at home surrounded by her loving family, after a long battle with breast cancer.

She was born September 3, 1956, in Wausau, and was a lifelong resident of Mosinee. She graduated from Mosinee High School in 1974. On April 16, 1977, she married the love of her life, Roy Berger. They were blessed with one daughter, Alissa.

Nancy was primarily a homemaker. She also did administrative and accounting work, most recently at Maple Ridge Farms in Mosinee, and was a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

Nancy enjoyed rubber stamping and paper crafting. It was always fun to see her creativity and receive handmade cards from her. She was an amazing Grammy to Tyler and Trevor and had a love for cheering on the Packers and Brewers, playing word games, relaxing by a campfire, and seeing the northern lights. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and was very active in service to the Lord.

Survivors, besides her husband, Roy, include a daughter, Alissa (Josh) Prentice of Schofield; two beloved grandsons, Tyler and Trevor Prentice; siblings, Jill (Randy) Buelow, Kathy Ryskiewicz, Laurie Henschel, Diane Sabatke, all of Mosinee, John (Tracey) Pelot Jr. of Stevens Point, Mike (Cyn) Pelot of Wausau, Carol Zogata of Riverton, Wyoming, Kathy (Jack) Ciula of Stevens Point, Glenda (Jerry) Bursky of Mosinee; and many treasured nieces, nephews; and great-nieces and great-nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Alice (Singkofer) Pelot; brother, Gregory Sabatke; mother-in-law, Vivian (Marquard) Berger; and father-in-law, Walter Berger.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, December 23, 2019, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Dancy, Wisconsin, with the Rev. Timothy Roser officiating. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. Monday until the time of services at the church. A private burial will be held in spring at St. John’s Lutheran Church Cemetery, Dancy.

The family would like to give a special thank you to Dr. Chris Peterson and the staff at Aspirus Cancer Center, as well as Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice. We are so grateful for your care. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. John’s Lutheran Church, 200950 St Johns Road, Mosinee, Wis. 54455 (formerly 2291 Church Road).

The best gift she ever gave her family was her fight against breast cancer for two and a half more years together.
