Violet “Vi” Ann Goetz

Violet “Vi” Ann Goetz passed away June 12, 2020, at the home of her brother, Wencle Stipek Jr.

Violet was born on her home farm April 8, 1935, to Wencle and Agnes (Koehler) Stipek.

She graduated from Cornell High School and June 24, 1967, she married Louis “Bud” Goetz. They had one son, Wayne.

Bud and Vi belonged to the Moose, and the three of them spent many nights there dancing to old-time music. Bud preceded her in death in 1995, and her son, Wayne in 2012.

They lived on Jeffers Road in Eau Claire, and in 2000, Vi moved to Grace Barstow Apartments.

It wouldn’t be a holiday without Vi’s glorified rice. Some of her interests were beautiful African violets, knitting, word searches, yummy banana bread and chocolate chip cookies, fishing, dancing, playing cards with her friends at the apartment where she lived and kitties.

She is survived by a sister – Leona Prokupek, Cadott; a brother – Wencle Jr. and Theresa, Jim Falls; several nieces and nephews; Bud’s sisters – Marian and LaVerne Soppeland, and Arlene and Bob Easterson; and brothers – John and Bev Goetz, and Harold Goetz.

Preceding her in death were her parents; her in-laws; her huband; son; a brother – Dale; brother-in-law – Lloyd Prokupek; and sisters-in-law – Ruby and Eunice Stipek; Bud’s family – Dot and Jess, Elaine, and Don and Betty.

A public graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, June 28, with Pastor Greg Sima officiating at the Bohemian National Cemetery, in the Town of Arthur, Chippewa County.

The family would like to thank Mayo Hospice and especially Felicia, for their care.
