Wilma  Pauline  Fanter
     Wilma Pauline Fanter, 82, of North Platte passed away Friday, May 12, 2017 at Great Plains Health. Wilma was born on March 24, 1935 to Jesse and Alberta (Beam) Main.
     She grew up working on the family farm in the Stapleton area. She was married to Theodore Halouska in 1952 and they had four boys, Ronald, Buddy, Brant, and Max. They lived in Stapleton for several years then moved to Broken Bow.
     Ted passed away in 1960. Wilma was married to William Fanter in 1961 and they had one boy, Gregory.
     The family moved to North Platte in 1961. Wilma worked at several restaurants in North Platte as a cook and in 1981 Wilma and Bill opened, and managed the Hungry Cowboy Café for a few years and Wilma''s cinnamon rolls were legendary in the community.
     She then started a career in home hospice care for several years, retiring in 2001.
     Wilma''s role in the community was to be a cheerleader in the stands as she supported her boys and their friends at baseball, basketball, football, and wrestling events. She opened her home up to everyone and made sure they were all well fed, often becoming a second mother to the friends of her sons.
     For the last several years she has been spending a lot of time meeting with her weekly crocheting group of friends, making sure that every grandchild and great-grandchild had a blanket that was crocheted especially for them with a great amount of love.
     She will be missed by friends and family and will be remembered as a caring and loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend.
     Wilma is survived by her husband, William; sons, Ronald Halouska, Buddy (Becky) Halouska, Brant (Jeannie) Halouska, Max (Cindy) Halouska, and Greg Fanter; 18 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; and other family.
     She was preceded in death by her parents; and husband, Ted Halouska.
     Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, May 19 at Adams & Swanson Funeral Home, which is in charge of arrangements. Pastor Robert Deardoff will officiate. Burial will follow at Loup Valley Cemetery near Stapleton.
