Barbara “Bobbie” Vanden Wyngaard (Marcantonio), age 72, of Kimberly, Wisconsin passed away peacefully on November 21, 2021, after a brief illness. Bobbie was an active member of St. Paul Parish-Combined Locks. She will be well remembered for her countless voluntary hours to her church community, volunteering, supporting Boys and Girls Club and participating as a Para at Foster School. Bobbie was loved by all and was known as “Grandma Bobbie” throughout the community and retired after 17 years of service with K-Mart.
Bobbie is survived by her loving husband Denny of 51 years; her beloved children Rocco (Denise) Vanden Wyngaard and Wendy Tate; four grandchildren: Olivia and Sophia Kero and Owen and Austin Tate, siblings Ronald (Laura) Marcantonio and Rocco (Laura) Marcantonio and many other relatives throughout the United States.
She is preceded in death by her parents Rocco and Florence Marcantonio.
She had a love for crocheting, baking cookies, many giftable crafts – and most of all, organizing family gatherings. Bobbie was a kind and caring soul who loved her family deeply. Her vivacity for life was contagious. She was the definition of human kindness. She will be missed dearly and fondly remembered. May her memory be eternal. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Paul’s Knights of Columbus and Mary’s Girls in Bobbie’s name.
