Annice “Annie” M. Ebersold (nee Hollister), age 75, of rural Random Lake, went to her heavenly home early Wednesday morning, February 8, 2012. Her loving husband and children were there for her, as she had always been there for them.
She was born May 6, 1936 in Buffalo County, Wisconsin, a daughter of the late Leonard and Mary (Perry) Hollister. Her school days were spent at Big Creek Grade School and Eleva-Strum High School.
On September 29, 1956 she married Calvin Ebersold in West Bend, Wisconsin. Together they made a loving home for their family and created memories that will never be forgotten. Cooking, laughter and lots of hugs, made their house a home. Annie worked at the Regal Ware Company in Kewaskum, Wisconsin for 33 years, retiring in 1996. She met and made lifelong friends there.
She was a member of St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, Batavia, Wisconsin and the Ladies Aid. Annie enjoyed gardening, mowing the lawn and animals, especially her cat Indy. She liked spending time on her computer, keeping in touch with family and friends through e-mails and Facebook. She loved having a house full of family. Her biggest joy came from her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who she loved so much. Anyone who has ever met Annie knows that you did not say goodbye to her without getting a hug.
Annie is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, Calvin, of Random Lake; her children: Perry (Lois) Ebersold of Campbellsport, Regina (Dave) Schneider of Hilbert, Clint (Cheryl) Ebersold of Fredonia, and Lonnie (Paul) Weyker of Cedar Grove; grandchildren: Amanda, Mike, Laura, Cayleigh, Jacob, Noah and Lila; 3 great-grandchildren; half brothers and sister: Roger Hollister, Daniel Hollister, Billy Hollister and Mary Jane Miles; brothers and sisters-in-law: Bobbie Ebersold of Tennessee, Karen (John) Fechter of West Bend, Peggy Volm of Kewaskum, and Denise (Dan) Reilly of Campbellsport and special friend Cordell Enright. She is also survived by other relatives and friends. Annie is preceded in death by an infant daughter, Tina, a grandson, Clayton Ebersold, brothers and sister: Harold Connett, Leonard Hollister Jr., Clint Hollister, Lois Reinke and special niece, Judy Heller.
