Stacie Ann Roessler, 89, of Woodway, entered eternity on May 8, 2020, after receiving a call from her Beloved Lord and Savior. She was blessed with a peaceful passing at her daughter’s home, surrounded by her loved ones after a brief, but courageous battle with cancer. When she is judged on her involvement in building the Kingdom, the evidence will be the devotion to her husband, family and community of faith.

Visitation celebrating her life and the Rosary will be 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 12, at OakCrest Funeral Home, 4520 Bosque Blvd., Waco. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10 a.m., Wednesday, May 13, at St. Louis Catholic Church in Waco with the Rev. Ryan Higdon as celebrant. Burial will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery in West, TX.

Stacie was born Anastasia Bacak in West, TX, on April 23, 1931, and her most meaningful Christmas as a child was when World War II ended and her brothers and brother-in-law came home. Her father was born in Czechoslovakia so Stacie was fluent in Czech as well as English. While working with her family’s farm caring for her younger brother Bill, Stacie met her loving husband-to-be, Herman Roessler, at a local dance hall. She graduated from West High School in 1949. They were married on October 22, 1949, in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Waco, TX. They built their home in 1953 and raised three children in the Midway Independent School District.

After Stacie got married and got a car of her own, she then visited for many years the shut-ins and patients in nursing homes. She also visited patients in the Waco Veterans Hospital. She completed a business college program in business administration and worked for GMAC in Waco for many years.
Stacie and Herman enjoyed boating and dancing at Czech Halls in West with their friends and family. Before television, they enjoyed playing “42” dominoes and card games. They enjoyed family vacations to see America and spending many weekends boating on Lake Whitney and Lake Waco teaching kids to love watersports and camping.

Stacie wrote in her memories that her husband had helped her to grow spiritually. He never missed mass unless he was very sick. He always attended the funerals of his relatives and friends. She never heard him to gossip about anyone and he inspired her to be a good person. He never complained to her when she got involved in works of charity. Stacie cared for Herman until his final passing on March 30, 2017. They celebrated their 68th Wedding Anniversary with family in their home in Woodway, TX.

Stacie was preceded in death by her husband, Herman Martin Roessler; her parents, Ignac Alois Bacak and Cecilia Frances Klish; her in-laws, John Theodore Roessler and Clara Margret Straten; three sisters, Agnes Bacak, Mary Murphy, Louise and husband, Rudolf Urban; three brothers, Ignac and wife, Rose Bacak, William and wife, Lillian Bacak, Lewis and wife, Martha Bacak; brothers-in-law, August J. Hlavenka and Henry F. Roessler; son-in-law Richard B. Hall; sister-in-law Annie and husband, Frank Schroeder; sister-in-law, Odilie Ann and husband, Raymond Gerik; and sister-in-law, Mary and husband, Ervin Podsednik.

Stacie is survived by her three children, Herman E. and wife, Marilynn Roessler, Linda R. Weinberg, Denise A. and husband, Ron Snapka; two grandchildren, Rachal K. and husband, Shawn Brewster, Jonathan and wife, Kari Weinberg; sister, Lillian Hlavenka; brother-in-law, Johnny and wife, Alma Lena Roessler, and sister-in-law, Erma Roessler.

Memorials may be made to Waco Humane Society Animal Shelter, 2032 Circle Rd., Waco, TX 76706, or the charity of your heart.

Herman, I was so sad to hear of your mother's passing. Even though I never knew her, I know she must have been a very
special lady to raise such a strong, caring and faithful son like you. My condolences to you, Marilyn and Rachal.
