Anna Mae (Guelig) Nett, 87, passed away peacefully on April
18, 2020 at Harbor Haven in Fond du Lac. She was born in Johnsburg, WI on March
29, 1933 to Oscar and Marie (Nett) Guelig.
Ann attended St. John’s grade school. She helped her parents
on their farm until her marriage to Wilfred Nett on April 20, 1955.
Ann moved to California with Wilfred while he finished his
Air Force service in October 1955. After returning home, they lived in
Johnsburg and started a family.
They were blessed with five children: Mary Brown, Patricia
(deceased), John (Sue Wagner) Nett, Julie (Bruce) Gillen and Joey (deceased).
In 1958 they bought a home in Fond du Lac. After the children were old enough,
Ann started waitressing at Sunset, 101 and Holiday Inn. After working at area
restaurants, she did some factory work.
Never leaving the children behind, Ann and Wilfred traveled,
summer-cottaged and enjoyed water boat sports.
Ann is survived by her husband of 65 years, Wilfred, three
children, Mary, John and Julie and their spouses, ten grandchildren and
thirteen great grandchildren. She is further survived by brothers Oscar Guelig
and Francis (Mary Feyan) Guelig, other relatives and friends.
Ann was preceded by her children, Patty Stockel and Joey,
her parents, a sister-in-law Rosie Guelig and members of Wilfred’s family,
Alfred and Estella Nett and Elmer and Esther Nett.
Private family services are scheduled.
The family would like to extend a very special thank you to
the staff at Harbor Haven and to Agnesian Hospice for the special care and
compassion given to mom and her family.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to Agnesian
Hospice Hope and Fond du Lac Aging and Disability.
