Annette "Carol" C. Kluck

January 24, 1937 ~ September 4, 2021 (age 84)


Annette “Carol” Kluck, 84, Wausau passed away on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at Primrose Retirement Community of Wausau. 


She was born January 24, 1937, in Little Falls, Minnesota, daughter of the late Carl and Antoinette (Courteau) Nelson, the fifth of eleven children.  On June 16, 1956, she married Franklin Kluck in Wausau.  He preceded her in death on January 3, 2018.


Carol worked in secretarial positions at J.C. Penny and WRIG Radio before setting on her career at Williams Realty Inc. It was there that she advanced from secretary to office manager and personal secretary to Mr. Williams.  She reached her goal of obtaining her Realtor’s license. 


Carol was an avid reader and had her own library.  She was a member of Toast mistresses, taught Tai Chi at the YMCA and made the best pecan caramel rolls.  Carol and Frank spent much of their retirement at the cottage near Minocqua where friends and family were always welcome, and a casino run was definitely on the agenda.


Survivors include her children, Crystal (Randall) Nielson, Wausau.; Anthony (Donna) Kluck, Wausau; David Kluck, Tomahawk; Susanne Kluck, Bakersfield, CA; and Michael (Joyce) Kluck, Wausau; eight grandchildren, three step-grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.  She is further survived by her brothers, Bob Nelson, Jack Nelson, James (Jan) Nelson and Ron Nelson and her sister, Jean (John) MacArthur.


Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brothers Charles, Erwin and Byron and her sisters, Shirley Brantley and Joan Kluetz.


The family wishes to thank the staff of Primrose for all their wonderful care during the time she was a resident there.  A Celebration of life will be planned at a later time.  Online condolences may be expressed at
