Prissel, Robert John


Robert John Prissel, 72, of Winona, died suddenly on March 3, 2019, following a wonderful family celebration.

Bob was born on January 26, 1947, in Chippewa Falls, Wis., and adopted by John and Cecelia (Berger) Prissel. On February 14, 1970, he married the love of his life, Bonnie Kranz. He worked at Red Wing Shoes and Brach’s candy factory from which he retired after 35 years.

Bob enjoyed playing cards, gardening, camping, dancing and his beloved cats. But fishing was his most favorite of past times – and he was pretty darn good at it.

He is survived by his wife, Bonnie of 49 years; two daughters, Jean (Tom) Albrecht and Jolene (Bob High) Prissel; special son, Joey (Amanda) Arens; grandchildren, Thomas and Curtis Pozanc and Tyler and Zachary High; sister, Phyllis Prissel; and many extended family and close friends.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents.

A celebration of Bob’s life will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, 2019, at Hoff Celebration of Life Center, Goodview, led by Funeral Celebrant Dianne Rislow. Visitation will be from 12 p.m. until the time of the service.
