Grace Pregont

December 14, 1929 — July 2, 2022

Wausau

Grace Esther Pregont, aged “92 and ½” – as she would say, of Wausau, went home to be with her Lord, with her family by her side at her home, on Saturday, July 2, 2022.

She was born on December 14, 1929, in Wausau, the daughter of the late Ervin and Esther (Zemke) Goetsch.  On July 1, 1950, she married Claude Pregont.  He preceded her in death on January 13, 2011.

Grace was dedicated and devoted to her religious faith which was very important to her. She enjoyed attending bible class with her dear friends for over 52-years. She also enjoyed going to her cottage up north, where she and Claude spent time fishing together.  Grace was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She enjoyed preparing food for everyone, and her kitchen was always open. Grace would light up the room with her sense of humor and joke telling, and she was a cherished friend to all that met her.

Survivors include her three children, Clark (Jacque) Pregont of Atchison, KS, Debi Pregont (Fischer) of Wausau, and Bruce (Melinda) Pregont of Ringle; six grandchildren, Bobby (Shauna) Fischer, Becca (Jason) Sliwicki, Rachel (Emily) Pregont, Justin (Melinda) Pregont, Lauran Roble, and Brent Pregont; 11 great-grandchildren, Anna, Will, Ceci, Ruby, Walter, Maya, Xavier, Louis, Viviane, Addilynn and Brianna; and one brother, Jerry (Ellen) Goetsch of Rothschild.

She was preceded in death by her husband Claude, three brothers, Alvin, Ralph, and Wayne Goetsch, and one sister, Sylvia Torzewski.
