Obituary

Halbach, Ann Marie
  
Age 35 of Stevens Point, passed away on August 20, 2019 with family and friends by her side, following a battle with cancer. She is survived by her mother, Jane Halbach; sister, Jody (Troy) Staniszewski; sister, Jill (Scott) McBroom; sister, Amy (Todd) Spilde; nephews: Ryan, Michael, Dylan, and Sean; nieces: Toni, Kendra, Taylor, Mauri, and Jaime; aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Preceded in death by her father, Dennis; brother, Lonnie; friend, Nicole; and grandparents.
 
Ann was kind, generous, funny, and a loyal friend. She loved to learn, travel, and help others. Growing up, she fostered an early love of the outdoors by visiting McDill pond to watch birds and look for turtles. She had a knack for numbers and even as a toddler beat her mother at ‘21.’ She was an athlete, participating in softball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and ultimate frisbee.  
 
Ann graduated from Stevens Point Area Senior High in 2002 and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Northern Arizona University in 2006. She was married to Zach Krogman in 2009 and divorced in 2015. Ann studied urban lake ecology and restoration at the University of Minnesota and earned her Master’s Degree in 2017. She interned at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Florida, worked for the Metropolitan Council in Saint Paul, and was a Data Analyst in the Business Information department at Renaissance Learning in Wisconsin Rapids.
 
Ann enjoyed walking her dog, spending time with her friends and family; laughing, going to concerts, playing board games and trivia. She loved watching sports, especially tennis, the Packers and the Brewers. Ann also loved to travel. She visited all fifty states, spent a semester at sea, vacationed to New Zealand, studied in Ghana, hiked Mount Kilimanjaro, and completed the Camino de Santiago across Spain.
 
Ann will be dearly missed by so many. The impact of her generosity and selflessness will never be forgotten. Ann and her family would like to thank the hospital staff at Mayo Clinic and Ascension, Heartland Hospice providers, her co-workers, therapists, family, friends, and neighbors for their constant care, attentiveness, unwavering support and love. Ann asks that we remember to be kind to one another.

A Celebration of Life Service in honor of Ann will be held at 3:00 PM Saturday August 24, 2019 at Shuda Funeral Home, 3200 Stanley Street, Stevens Point, with visitation starting at 1:00.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium for ocean research.

Dear Jane and family,

I wanted to share how grateful I am that Ann planned an elaborate, well thought out scavenger hunt in downtown Stevens Point for her co-workers-which allowed our paths to cross once more. Although I have many zany memories of Ann (many involving costumes, parties and hiking down a firefly lit path on Summer Field Studies) from our high school days, it has been the conversations we’ve had in the past couple years as adults I will treasure most.

One story in particular which I will always cherish, and which I feel was a moment of pride for her was from her time at Semester at Sea. A large storm came up quick, and all the students were made to go below deck. The hurricane like 40 ft swells caused the sailboat to roll and the mast to touch the sea, ripping the sail. When the storm was over and the students were back on deck, Ann was chosen to mend the sail. This job is one of the best kinds of essential work, hard and tedious, requiring strength and patience, but best of all bestowed as an honor-awarded to only the most patient, trust worthy, and exacting student.

Besides being a great adventure story, what especially struck me was that along with her professors and peers, Ann recognized that she herself was an ultimate sail-mender in all aspects of life. Her smart, quirky spirit was welcoming and kind and brought people together, healed hurt souls and coaxed consensus out of the most tedious situations.

The dissolved oxygen/climate research she conducted while sailing is just now making its way into the mainstream press as a climate change concern and I suspect we’ll be seeing more of that as time passes, to which I will always think of Ann, the 40 ft swells and mending the sail.

love,

Hillary

Dear Jane and family,
We will deeply miss Ann. She was like a sister to our daughter since 7th grade and a wonderful human being that the world, and the sea, has lost.
Love, Ted & Caren

As Ann's graduate adviser, I came to know her as a determined and intelligent scientist and co-worker who met every problem with a smile and a positive attitude. She was simply a joy to work with and I'm so sad I'll never enjoy her company again.

To the family of Ann,

You have my deepest sympathy. I didn't know Ann personally but knew the Halbach family (went to high school with Jody and Lonnie). Cherish the memories you have of Ann. May she rest in peace and fly with the angels.
