Obituary

Eunice H. Zenner, 101, of Chippewa Falls, died Saturday, December 31, 2022 at Our House Senior Living in Chippewa Falls, under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice.

Eunice was born December 25, 1921 in Cadott, the daughter of Arthur and Lona (Lotz) Schultz.

She grew up in Cadott and later worked at the Hotel Northern in Chippewa Falls.  After the war, she married Alan Zenner on October 5, 1946.  Together they owned and ran Zenner’s tavern in Chippewa Falls until retiring.

After retiring, they moved to their cabin in Phillips Wisconsin where they resided for twenty years.  She and Alan were constant companions sharing fishing, hunting, gardening and enjoying Leine’s, (the only tap beer sold at their bar).  Eunice was very sociable, loved visiting with people and was always willing to listen to everyone’s story. She was always known as “Granny” to all of her grand and great-grandchildren.

Eunice is survived by two daughters, Carol (Jim) Meinen of Chippewa Falls and Nancy (Tom) Frenette of Winona, MN; seven grandchildren, Paul and Scott Zielke, Peter Meinen, Maureen, Tom and Ben Frenette, and Christina McConnell, six great-grandchildren, sister-in laws Carol Schultz and Faith Schultz, nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends; and her special friend Mary Pecka.

Eunice was preceded in death by her husband Alan; son-in-law Don Zielke; her parents; four brothers, Howard, Austin, Jim and Charles Schultz; and three sisters, Marion Jacobson, Joyce Smith and Gene Martin. 

Friends may call from 4p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 17th and from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Wednesday at the Horan Funeral Home in Chippewa Falls.  There will be a Christian vigil service at 5 p.m. on Tuesday at the funeral home.
