Sharon D. Wisch, 67, of Whitewater passed away on Sunday, July 21, 2019 at Mercy Hospital in Janesville.

Sharon was born on December 2, 1951 in Fresno, California to James and Paulette (Dearman) Frasier. Her father was an iron worker and they traveled around a lot during Sharon’s early childhood. She remembers traveling across the desert with a water bag hanging on the front end of their car. Sharon enjoyed having fresh California produce including avocados, pecans, strawberries and oranges, and was able to pick her own oranges in their backyard. In grade school, she was able to look out her classroom window out to the Ocean and see the whales going by. Sharon graduated Fresno High in 1969. On November 27, 1971 Sharon married Richard Wisch in Fresno. Before leaving Fresno, Sharon worked as hotel linen staff at Motel 6. After moving to Wisconsin, she worked at the Sears store in Whitewater. Sharon and Richard worked together for twenty years as custodial staff at UW-Whitewater.

Sharon enjoyed crocheting, gardening, traveling back and forth from California with Richard, and visiting casinos on their trips.

She is survived by her husband, Richard Wisch; brother, David Frasier; brother-in-law, Ray Wisch; several nieces and nephews.

Sharon is preceded in death by her parents, Jim and Pauline Frasier and sister, Ginger Berry.

Funeral services will take place at 6 pm on Friday July 26, 2019 at Nitardy Funeral Home, 1008 Madison Ave. Fort Atkinson, WI 53538. A visitation will take place from 4 pm until time of service.

The family would like to give special thanks to Mercy Medical Center in Elkhorn, Holton Manor in Elkhorn and Mercy Hospital in Janesville for doing everything they could to keep Sharon with us.
