Hannelore Schiessl Obituary

Hannelore Marie Schiessl, 86, of North Prairie, Wi. passed away on Thursday, December 21, 2023 at Three Pillars Memory Care.

Hannelore was born on November 18, 1937 in Windsbach, Germany the daughter of Anton and Margarete (Lehner) Maier. She spent her childhood in Germany until Hannelore and her family immigrated to New York City in November of 1951. She graduated early from Bayside High School in Queens, New York in 1955. On November 19, 1958, Hannelore was united in marriage to Johann “Hans” Schiessl. Hannelore and Hans would go on to enjoy more than 63 years of marriage together and the couple was blessed with two sons, John and Tom. Hannelore worked in a few different capacities during her life, working as an administrative assistant on Wall Street before working part time as an office manager in the real estate industry. She enjoyed working, but the job she devoted her time to was being a wife and mother to her warm and loving home family. She greatly enjoyed tending to her garden where she grew both flowers and vegetables. She was also content to get lost in a good book. Hannelore was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and she will be missed but forever remembered by those she leaves behind.

She is survived by: her two sons, John (Lauren Weigel) Schiessl of Whitefish Bay, WI, and Tom (Theresa) Schiessl of Waukesha, WI; her grandchildren, Andrew (Amber) Schiessl of Dousman, WI, Aley (Chad) Moore of Pewaukee, WI, Joseph (Katie) Schiessl of Eagle, and Ava Schiessl-Weigel of Whitefish Bay, WI; and her great-grandchildren, Evelyn, and Max. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband Hans G. Schiessl, her dear granddaughter, Hannah Schiessl, and her siblings, Bernhard and Gudrun.
