We are so sad to read that Ann has passed away from her battle with cancer. She was a darling girl at Antigo High! She was smart and sweet, too. Her welcoming presence at McCormick-Klessig and especially the General Clinic lightened our days. She will be missed by all of us! God bless you!

Emily Hetto on Jan 26, 2021

I'm so sorry for your loss of a wonderful person. It's just hard to believe she won't grace this earth with her presence anymore.
Ann was such a delight to work with. Her beautiful smile and personality lit up the room. I left Antigo over 3 years ago and didn't know she was fighting cancer.
She will truly be missed by everyone who knew her. God bless you girl. I guess God had something in mind when He took you home with Him.
Sending my sympathy from Florida. I will truly miss Ann. 😥❤🙏

Dean and Polly Blazek on Jan 26, 2021

We lived on Sixth Ave when Annie was growing up on Pearl St. Our backyards were an open space and all the neighborhood families would celebrate on each summer holiday and the Spanbauer Family was definitely part of the party! We’ll miss Annie’s smiling face at the clinic, a loss too soon. Polly and Dean

Cheryl Belott on Jan 26, 2021

My prayers are with the entire family. She was always so nice at the General Clinic, she will be missed.

Eileen Meyer on Jan 25, 2021

Ann was a great gift from God. Most certainly Heaven is rejoicing with her presence. I was privileged to work with her most of the 25 years at the clinic and we made quite a team. She will live on in the kindness she shared and the love she brought into the lives of her family and all those whose lives she touched. Her gentle ways were apparent in the love for her family. May she continue to live on in our heart--to spread those beautiful wings. A dear sweet woman with a most glorious of souls

Julie Jordan on Jan 25, 2021

Hugs to all of you!

Sheila Marckx on Jan 25, 2021

I'm shocked and sad to see Ann's passing. I worked with her at Aspirus General Clinic for a few years. The love of her life was her husband and her daughters. Ann was simple, pleasant, and fun to work with. I remember Ann having a good sense of humor with her coworkers and patients. There's not a doubt in my mind Ann will be missed by all that knew her. I'm thankful I got the chance to work with her.

Christina Berens on Jan 25, 2021

Karl, Jenna and Shannon. I don't have words to express how sad I am to hear of Ann's passing. Thinking of her brings back happy memories of coaching you girls and seeing both Ann and Karl in the stands. Ann was the kindest and most supportive person to both you girls and to all your teammates and I couldn't be happier to have her as an unofficial 'team mom' ---- cupcake and all! Such a wonderful time and fond memories of Ann. You were all so blessed to have had each other for the time that you did. Hold those memories close to your heart. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time and into the future.
