Rosanna Hackbarth


Feb. 5, 1950 - Feb. 4, 2013



Rosanna Hackbarth of Mukwonago was called home Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, at the age of 62.


She is the loving mother of Brian (Maria) Hackbarth; cherished grandmother of Eleanor Hackbarth; and special sister of Christine (Robert) Lundwall, Kathleen (Buzz) Morisette, Jennifer (Greg) Kane, Michelle (Peter) Fantl and Andrea (Joe) Vespalec. Rosanna is further survived by her mother, Catherine Buschmann, other relatives and many friends.


She was preceded in death by her husband, William Hackbarth; a sister, Lorrie (Mark) Weber; and her father, Robert Buschmann.


Rosanna’s passion for taking care of others carried into her career as a registered nurse where she worked in hospitals as a case manager and as a teacher for nursing students. She often could be found tending to her beautiful gardens, in the kitchen baking, taking her dogs for a walk, or spending time enjoying her granddaughter, family and friends. Rosanna’s kind and loving spirit will be greatly missed!


Visitation will be held from 3 p.m. until the 4 p.m. memorial service Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Schmidt & Bartelt Funeral Home, 930 Main St. (Highway ES), Mukwonago.
