Lenore Pomasl, of Pickerel, died Friday, October 2, 2015 at home surrounded by her family. She was 82 years old. She was born on November 23, 1932 in the Town of Wolf River, a daughter of Stanley and Emma (Klimoski) Skodinski.
She was a graduate of White Lake High School with the class of 1951.
Shortly after high school she married Sylvester J. Bumann at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Langlade. He preceded her in death in 1958. On February 3, 1962 she married Michael Pomasl at St. James Catholic Church, White Lake. He preceded her in death on November 21, 2012.
She and her family lived in White Lake and moved to Pickerel in 1975. She tended bar at Wheelers Anchor Inn for many years. Lenore was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Pickerel.
Time spent with her children and grandchildren is what she valued most. She never minded being uncomfortable as long as they were comfortable. She cooked from scratch, made everyone’s favorite and all at the same time. She will be remembered for her famous pickles, potato salad, barbecue and homemade soups.
Lenore played cards and cribbage on a regular basis and for someone who never drove she sure got around a lot.
She was an avid Green Bay Packer and Wisconsin Badger fan. She enjoyed her spirited Wednesday afternoon card club and trips to the casino.
