Obituary for Sandra K. Hacker
Sandra “Sandy” Katherine Hacker ended her journey the same day it began 65 years earlier passing away February 14th. Sandy was surrounded by family at her home in Frederic after an inspirational battle with cancer for nearly 11 years.
Sandy was born in St. Paul, MN on February 14th, 1947. She grew up in Frederic where she graduated from Frederic High School in 1965. She went on to work in several occupations, including operating the Sears catalog store in Cumberland for a number of years, but will probably be best remembered occupationally for her many, many years at the local bowling center of which she and her husband Richard “Butch” Hacker became owners in 1997.
Sandy was a loving and dedicated mother and grandmother who took great pride in her family, photos of whom could be seen on display throughout the bowling center. Her passion in life was bowling and maintaining her forever-winning status in Scrabble; she also enjoyed golfing and fishing as well as an occasional game of bingo.
She is survived by her husband, Butch Hacker of Frederic; father, James “Big Jim” Prodger of Danbury, WI; son, Scott (Renee) Anderson of Rice Lake, WI; daughter, Kim Bruss (Kelly Hicks) of Siren, WI; stepson, Donnie (Kim) Hacker of Elk River, MN; stepson, Joey Hacker of Luck, WI; daughter-in-law, Jen Hacker of Milltown, WI; brother, Jim (Gerry) Prodger of Bloomington, MN; and 13 grandchildren, Andrew, Austin, Eric, Mackenzie, Kaitlyn, Lucas, Paige, Taylor, Keenan, Melissa, Emily, McKayla and Morgan; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, her dear friends on the staff at the bowling center and an entire community she considered her extended family. Sandy was preceded in death by her mother, Lu Prodger; sister, Pat Skow; and father-in-law, Richard Hacker, Sr.
Her expressed wishes included that there be a Celebration of Life, which will be held at Hackers Lanes on the afternoon of Saturday, February 25th, beginning at 2 p.m. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Cancer Society or the Frederic Area Cancer Walk/Run on May 12th, an event very important to her and the entire family.
