Obituary for Catherine "Katy" M. Hennes

Catherine “Katy” (nee Zivkovich) Hennes, age 76, of Neosho, Wisconsin departed from this life into the Heavenly bliss on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. Family and friends who knew her have lost a faithful servant, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
Catherine was born on July 14, 1942, the youngest of nine children in the family of Marko and Agnes (nee Miskulin) Zivkovich. Katy attended Rubicon’s St. John Catholic grade school where her faith-filled devotion was formed, developed, and continued throughout her life. She graduated from Hartford High School in 1960. Catherine married the love of her life James Hennes on May 4, 1963 at St. John Catholic Church in Rubicon. She is survived by her husband of 55 years and they raised six children: John (Beth) Hennes of Rubicon, Beth (Steve) Braunschweig of Reedsburg, Paul (Toni) Hennes of Neenah, Mark (Kerry) Hennes of Rubicon, Rita (Duane) Olbinski of Horicon and David (Sabrina) Hennes of Neosho. She has been loved and adored by her grandchildren, Josh (Cheri), Brandon, and Nathan Hennes, Rebecca (Charlie) Hoffman, Craig (Melissa Miller) Braunschweig, Matthew and Monica Hennes, Logan McClellan, Cody, Noah, and Austin Hennes, Jason (Alexia) Olbinski, Daniel (Sarah) Olbinski, Brayden, Deklan, and Aiden Hennes. Her precious great-grandchildren, Autumn and Ryker Hennes and Buck Olbinski. In recent years, neighbor Sean Fuiten has helped with farm chores like an “adopted grandchild.”
Farming with her husband and family filled their busy days from sunrise to sunset. Katy was Jim’s official “gofer-girl”, go for this, go for that, and go for anything she would forget. She loved driving tractor and working out in the fields. Cooking and baking to fulfill her family the “art” of making apple peta, which is a family tradition! She enjoyed playing solitaire, word search, fill ins, and various games with her kids and grandkids.
Catherine is further survived by her sister Anne (Lloyd) Thelen, her sisters-in-law Donna Thoma, Judy (Rich) Truett, and Therese (Jeff) Miller and many nieces and nephews.
Her parents precede her in death, as well her children, Joseph and Mary; grandsons Jeremy and Brennon Hennes; sister Mary (Walter) Bilgreen; brothers Thomas (Ethel), Joseph (Dorothy), Michael, George (Elaine) John, and Marko Jr.; brother-in-law Phil Thoma.
