Barbara Wenner

Barbara Ann Wenner, 84, of Prior Lake, Minn., formerly of Carey, entered eternal peace June 20, 2021.
Edward and Kathryn (Schindler) Jacoby announced the birth of Barbara on May 17, 1937. Born and raised in Carey, faith was the main foundation and carried her throughout life. Barbara married Eugene Wenner on Nov. 26, 1955, at Our Lady of Consolation. As a family, they were fortunate to fly all over the world, because Gene worked for the airlines. They also enjoyed camping, swimming and fishing. Barbara and Gene owned “The Milk Store,” in Prior Lake for many years. She devoted 24 years to the Marriott Hotels and gave countless hours serving her church and community in many ministries and organizations. Barbara’s great joy was becoming a grandma and great grandma.
Forever loved, she will be missed by her husband, Eugene; children, Debra (Larry) Wenner Frost, Dennis (Mary) Wenner, John (Elisabeth) Wenner, Julie Wenner and Barbara (Dan) Duffy; daughter-in-law, Wanda Wenner; 12 grandchildren, Mindy, Candice, Jess, Tiffany, Mike, Jacob, Heidi, Samantha, Hallie, Nick, Jack and Heather; 14 great-grandchildren, Victoria, Kassie, Zach, Jeremy, Ramsey, Wyatt, Landon, Gavin, Payton, Degan, Dillon, Skyler, Deklin and Everleigh; siblings, Bob, Ron, Jean and Joan; and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by a son, Eugene Alfred Wenner Jr.; parents, brother, James Jacoby; and sister, Patricia Chandler.
A visitation was held June 23 and 24 at Ballard-Sunder Funeral and Cremation, Prior Lake, Minn. A mass of Christian burial was held June 24 at St. Michael Catholic Church, Prior Lake.
Memorials preferred and distributed in Barbara’s memory, by the family. Additional services will be held later in Carey.
