August 1, 1929 ~ April 20, 2021 (age 91)


Carol J. Warosh, 91, Wausau, passed away Tuesday April 20, 2021 at Stone Crest Residence, Wausau, with her cherubic angels of sons as well as her friend, Stanley the kitty by her side.


She was born August 1, 1929 in Sheboygan, daughter of the late Theodore and Rose “Eleanor” (Lesniak) Pepke.  On June 19, 1954, she married Robert Warosh at St. Anne Catholic Church, Wausau.  He preceded her in death October 23, 2013.


Through the years, Carol had been employed at Bob Johnson’s Chevytown, Engineered Curtainwall and Marathon Electric, where she was a member of their Quarter Century Club.  Carol and Bob were founding members of the Rib Mountain Bowmen and they were also members of the Trailmates Snowmobile Club where Carol was treasurer. 


The Warosh’s were Charter Members and founders of St. Matthew Catholic Church.  Their parish involvements included volunteering for the Funeral Dinner Committee, Fun Days, Holly Hall, The Trash and Treasure Sale and Fall Festival and the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.  Carol was also a member of the church quilting club.  They were also active members of the Knights of Columbus, 1069 George J Schreier Council.


In their spare time they relaxed up north at their cabin or out in the woods enjoying God’s creation.  Her homemade “Camp Cake” was a staple there. They were also active members of the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association (WWOA), and relished attending local chapter events and the annual meetings.

Mom enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder and shooing Scrappy the squirrel away when she felt he had eaten too much.

Survivors include her sons, Thomas (Deborah) Warosh, Sheboygan, Richard Warosh, Wausau; grandchildren, Megan (Josh) Bach, and their son, Zeke; Matthew (Katelyn) Warosh and their sons, Owen and Thomas; a step granddaughter, Danielle Ragsdale and her two sons, Yonnie and Martie; nieces, nephews; brother-in-law, John “Jack” Zimmerer.


Besides her husband and parents, Carol was preceded in death by a sister, Beverly Zimmerer.
