We were all blessed to have known and loved Nancy Ann Kollatz, age 82 of Arena, Wisconsin who went home to her Lord on January 3, 2020 after her valiant fight with cancer.
Nancy was born on July 27, 1937 in West Allis, Wisconsin to Arthur and Alice (Kippers) Kollatz.
Nancy was an incredible athlete in many sports – tennis, softball, speed skating – you name it. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, she taught in the River Valley School District, retiring after 40 years. She came to know the Lord at Arena Bible Church where she served and worshipped for many years. Nancy ran a successful farm raising beef cattle. So many things in life brought joy to Nancy, watching all Badger sports, the Packers, and tennis; time outdoors on her farm; and time spent with her beloved dogs, Murphy and Gigi. Nancy contributed to many charities for veterans, children, and animals.
Nancy is survived by her cousin, Warren Kippers, nephew, Kevin Kippers, niece, Susan Haas and their families; Kathy Kippers; her adopted family, the Bauman’s, and many dear neighbors and friends.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Alice (Kippers) Kollatz; and her brother, Don.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. at Arena Bible Church in Arena, Wisconsin with Pastor Joel Bauman officiating. Visitation services will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 9:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. at the church. Burial will be in the Good Hope Cemetery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at a later date.
