Beverly Ellen “Bev” (Burke) Aschebrock, age 80, passed away at her home Saturday, July 17, 2021, under Aspirus Hospice Care with her daughters, Kim, Peggy, and Jackie at her side.
She was born July 25, 1940, in Lone Rock, WI to Rolland and Lela (Anderson) Burke. On August 16, 1958, she married Neal “Jack” Aschebrock in Marathon WI. They were 8 days short of their 60th wedding anniversary when he passed away on August 8, 2018.
Beverly attended school in several different school districts as the family moved often in her youth. One of her favorite schools was in Crow Hill in Richland Center, WI. She graduated in 1958 from Marathon High School.
She worked at the UW Extension in the early 1960s, at the Marathon County Courthouse, and then retired from Kraft Foods in 1996 after 28 years.
Beverly was an avid golfer and bowler. She and Jack won many trophies in leagues in both sports. They had a great group of friends with whom they spent many Friday nights playing dice and cards after the Friday fish fry. She appreciated a good old-fashioned and a cold Miller beer. She also had a great love of reading. She enjoyed going “East of town” both with Jack and then Jackie, often for a “Chicken Run”.
She was a wonderful cook. Her specialties were doughnuts, potato salad, homemade noodles and buns, and her famous baked beans. She loved to make the noodles for family get-togethers as they were the most requested.
Her love for her family was evident in everything she did. She will be sadly missed by all.
Survivors include daughters Kimberly (Jody) Morger, Merrill WI, Peggy (Steve) Artz, Gleason WI, and Jackie Aschebrock, Wausau WI.
Nine grandchildren: Tyler and Dillon Morger, Erin Needham, Aimee Kramolis, Megan Jeranek, Kelly and Samantha Artz, Ashley Paszek, and Jessica Eckes.
Twelve great-grandchildren: Grant Morger, Brock, Brady and Teagan Needham, Ian and Ellesandra Kramolis, Liam and Bennett Jeranek, Zoey and Zach DeGroot, Tyrin and Bella Manske. She is also survived by her sister, Norma Jansen, brother-in-law, Larry (Barb) Aschebrock, sisters-in-law, Murt Burke and Betty Aschebrock, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack, daughter, Sandy Dunst, brothers Cecil, Bob, Dick, and Larry Burke, sisters Darlene Richardson, Helen Sanden, Bonnie Salzman and Marjorie Burke.
A celebration of life will take place Saturday, August 7, 2021, from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Doepke Park 2200 S Mountain Rd, Wausau WI 54401.
