Barbara Foss (nee Werning), age 82, died April 18, 2017, after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease at The Virginia Health & Rehab Center in Waukesha. She was born on October 11, 1934, to Albert and Joyce (nee Wright) Werning.

In 1952, she married her farmer sweetheart, Willis. Along with Willis, she ran a large dairy farm in Vernon for most of her life, and was a longtime member of the Waukesha County Agri Business and Golden Guernsey Dairy Producers. After retiring from the farm, she worked at the front desk at Farm and Fleet. She was a former member at the Evangelical & Reformed United Church of Christ.

She will be sadly missed by her children, Terry (Candy) Foss of Waukesha, Sherry (Mark) Cartwright of Big Bend and Sue (Mike) Quam of New Berlin; her seven wonderful grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. She is further survived by her brother Richard (Roberta "Bobbie") Werning of Waukesha and her sister-in-law Mary Werning of Oklahoma. Nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends also survive. She was preceded in death by her husband, Willis, on August 2, 2007, and her brother Roland "Rocky" Werning.

Per her request, her body was donated to The Medical College of Wisconsin and there will be no funeral services planned. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the nurses and staff at The Virginia Health & Rehab for the loving care provided in Barbara’s last months.
