Baby Child 15

Zoe Catherine Angelica Bares

July 16, 2021 ~ July 16, 2021


Zoe Catherine Angelica Bares, adorned by the Sacraments as a bride of Christ, was called home on the same day of her birth, Friday, July 16, 2021, to the heavenly wedding feast. She was true to her namesake, fighting hard for the gift of life that God gave her, and so she was able to enjoy a full day with her loving family before going to eternal glory.

Zoe is survived by parents: Mark and Laura Bares (Merrill), siblings: Ethan (Anne), Cole, Olivia, Adam, Ryan, Luke, Benjamin and Louis, grandparents: Jim and Jan Bares (Merrill) and Brad and Julie Nelson (Weston) and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

A prayer service for Zoe will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at Waid Funeral Home at 11am, with a time of visitation from 9am until the service, also at the funeral home.  Rev. Canon Aaron Huberfeld will officiate and provide support to the family. Burial in the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Cemetery will immediately follow the service.
