Violet Parsell

July 20, 1917 — October 27, 2020

Violet R. Parsell, 103, of Wausau, passed away peacefully on October 27, 2020 at Stone Crest Residence.

Violet was born July 20, 1917 in Chicago, IL to the late Charles and Mary (Gebis) Kristufek.  Despite a life of challenges, she was fiercely independent and able to see the humor in life.  As a child, she traveled an hour and a half to Cubs baseball games and remained an avid fan throughout life.  An accomplished seamstress, she took pride in making her own clothes.  Her love of desserts never diminished.

Violet is survived by her daughter, Gail (Clifford) Batka; 3 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; 1 great-great grandchild; and a cousin. She is preceded in death by her parents; two half-brothers; and two husbands.

A private family service is being held. Violet will be laid to rest at Bohemian National Cemetery, Chicago, IL.

Donations in Violet’s memory may be made to Homme Home, c/o Stone Crest, 805 Parcher Street, Wausau, WI 54403.

Violet’s family wishes to thank Stone Crest and Aspirus Hospice for their top-notch care and services.
