“Mr. Speaker: It’s with a heavy heart, that I rise today to recognize the loss of four members of our greater Wausau community. It was last week that four lives were taken from us all to early.
“Karen Barclay was warm and caring to everyone around her. At Marathon Savings Bank, she made sure that kids would never leave without a lollipop.
“Dianne Look, known as ‘Dee-Dee,’ celebrated her 25th wedding anniversary last month. Dianne loved to make jewelry; raising money for the American Cancer Society.
“Sara Quirt-Sann had an infectious laugh and ran her own law practice. She proudly served as a Guardian ad Litem for kids in our community.
“We also lost Detective Jason Weiland of the Everest Metro Police Department, who was killed in the line of duty. Serving 18 years in what was described as his ‘dream job,’ Detective Weiland wore the Everest Metro PD uniform because he wanted to protect people and keep his community safe.
“On behalf of this institution, I rise to extend my deepest regrets to their families – the mothers and fathers, husbands, wives and children who no longer have a special member in their homes.”
