Phillips

Dorothy M. Pisca, 92, formerly of Prentice, WI, has planted her last gladiolus bulb, cooked her last pot of chili, and watched her last episode of "Dancing with the Stars." Mom passed away early in the morning on November 11, 2023, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital after a short illness. She was born to the late Gust Sr. and Margaret (Tesch) Kalander on March 15, 1931, in Ogema, WI. 

Dorothy graduated from Prentice High School in 1950. On November 21, 1953, she married Tony Pisca at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Phillips, and they made their home in Phillips. In 1965, they moved their family to Prentice. She returned to the work force as her children grew up and was employed by Phillips Plastics until her retirement after many years. She took a brief break and returned to work with the Prentice School District part time as a janitress until she was 77 years old. She has resided at Duroy Terrance Senior Living Facility for the last 3 years. 

She is survived by four children, Shelley (Peter) Lewandowski of Mosinee, WI, Michael Pisca of Wausau, WI, Mark (Gail) Pisca of Rothschild, WI, and Sharon (Jon) Weeks of Mosinee, WI; grandchildren, Nicholas (the late Erika), Jacob (Jessica), Steven Lewandowski, and Katy (Colin) Vis; great-grandchildren, Valerie, Avery, and Joslyn; siblings, Betty Carlson, Helen Best, Sharon (Bruce) Jilka, and Jack (Diane) Kalander; sisters-in-law, Shirley, Nancy, and Edith Kalander.
