Obituary for Annette Sara Heller

Annette Heller, age 64 and resident of Minong, WI, passed away late Sunday, January 30th, 2022, at Burnett County Medical Center.

On July 18th, 1957, she was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to Howard and Ellen Heller (Schaffer).

Ann had a zest for life, going to concerts, tending her garden, playing cards, and going for motorcycle rides. Ann appreciated nature and taking the time to soak up the sun, down by the lake. She enjoyed taking care of her cattle and wasn’t afraid of a little hard work. She met every challenge head-on. Ann also loved to travel and lived in different places throughout her life. However, she settled down in Wisconsin with her daughters and attended school to become a machinist.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Kathleen and survived by her sisters Lea Heath (Harry),
Marsha Hetty Heller, her three daughters: Dennette Heller, Melissa Johnston, and Leslea Wiggins. Along with her boyfriend Kevin Krueger, four grandchildren, other relatives, and beloved friends.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date—more information to follow.

In place of flowers or cards, we request that you donate to the Arbor Day Foundation or Plant a tree in her honor. Annie was an avid donor and planted thousands of trees throughout her life.
