Deborah J. Spatz, 66, of Wausau, joined her husband in Heaven on May 29, 2022.
Deborah was born in Wausau on September 14, 1955, to Jerry and Mary Grosskreutz. Deborah was known as the family caretaker- first caring for her siblings, then children, and now grandchildren and great-grandchild. She always put family before herself. Her nurturing spirit blended into volunteer work, most recently with military associations such as FRG, VFW, American Legion and Man of Honor. She adored her twelve grandchildren and one great-grandchild. We will miss her deeply.
Deborah is survived by her mother, Mary Smith; children, David (Denise) Spatz, Janet Spatz, Patricia Spatz, Kristopher (Kyrie) Spatz, Joshua (Megan) Spatz, and Zachary Spatz; twelve grandchildren; one great-grandchild; three sisters; and one brother. She is preceded in death by her husband Paul Spatz; father Jerry Grosskreutz; niece Kelsey Schroeder; stepfather Duane Smith; dogs Midnight and Mufasa; and cat Whiskers.
