Barbara Renee (Henze) Wigton, 55 of Yankton, died Jan. 22, 2020 in Yankton after a brief but intense battle with cancer.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Opsahl-Kostel Funeral Home and Crematory in Yankton. Online condolences may be made to:

Barbara Henze was born Oct. 13, 1964 in Huron, SD to James and Rose (Esche) Henze. She spent her childhood on the family farm in Tulare, SD. Many happy hours were spent playing in the groves and fields that surrounded the farm and large family gatherings provided an abundance of cousins to add to the merriment. As a farm girl, she learned how to work hard and the “farm-kid” work ethic made her a valuable employee throughout her life.

She is survived by her mother; two sisters; a brother, Dennis Henze of Elk Point; five children; and five grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her father and a grandchild.
