Viola Alice Prott

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Viola (Vi) Prott on Friday, March 10, 2023. Vi was born in March 1930 to Emil and Alma Frogner in Colfax, WI.
Vi was a kind, independent and selfless woman who loved the simple things in life. She had a contagious laugh and a smile that could light up a room. Vi enjoyed reading, walking, animals, was an avid seamstress, and loved to crochet and knit.
She had the curiosity of a child and the wisdom of so many of her generation who have seen the world change. She was also always her proud of her Norwegian heritage. Above all else, Vi loved nothing more than spending time with her family. 
Vi came to Wausau to work at Employers Mutual Company, where she met her husband, Robert (Bob), a widower with two very young children. Bob and Vi married in 1957 and she was a devoted wife and mother, beloved by her two children for the rest of her life.
Vi is survived by her son, Jon Prott, her daughter, Roxie (Dennis) Page, four grandchildren, Chad (Sue) Page, Kyle (Elizabeth) Page, Alison (Ben) Johnson, and Haylee (Kory) Kaiser, four great-grandchildren, Finley, Harper, Parker, and Skylar, and a niece, Patty (Larry) Nicholas.
Vi was preceded in death by her husband Robert, great-grandson, Beau Rylee Kaiser, her parents, and siblings, Edwin, Ken, and Alvina.
A private service was held at Restlawn Cemetery in Wausau. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Aspirus Hospital for the wonderful care provided to our mom and a big heartfelt thank you to Wausau Aspirus Hospice House. Your kindness and support will never be forgotten.
We will always cherish Vi's memory, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
