April 29, 1933 — May 11, 2024

South Milwaukee

Nadine Henneman from South Milwaukee, Wisconsin, peacefully passed away on May 11th, 2024, at the age of 91. Born and raised on a bustling family farm in Fairchild, Wisconsin, alongside 15 siblings, Nadine embraced the values of family and hard work early in life. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, she was employed at Ladish in Cudahy, Wisconsin and enjoyed her time as a part-time bartender. Nadine had a passion for decorating, puzzles, and crocheting. She always looked forward to celebrating Christmas, her favorite holiday. She was known for her wonderful sense of humor and her homemade bread.

She was predeceased by her husband, Gordon; granddaughter, Jamie; her parents, Robert and Elsie Wampole; and her 15 siblings. Nadine's legacy continues through her six children: Debbie (Mike) Kradolfer, Mike (Carolyn) Henneman, Tim Henneman, Becky Lijewski (Joe Owen), Brenda (Dan) Woznicki, and Lisa (Bob) Hillestad. She leaves behind 14 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.

The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the staff members at Franciscan Villa and St. Croix Hospice for their compassionate care of Nadine in her final years.
