Eugene Woller Obituary, Death – On December 28, Eugene Woller passed away, two and a half weeks after he formally ceded ownership of the business to his son and daughter-in-law. His son and daughter-in-law were married at the time of the transfer.
For the prior half a century, Woller had been making a living from the sales of his honey at the Dane County Farmers Market. He was 76. Woller was well-known at the farmer’s market for the observation hive that he kept at his booth adjacent to West Washington Avenue and for his want to talk about bees.
He was also well-known for his willingness to talk about bees. It was the second year that the market was open that he and his wife Donna started selling handmade honey at the market that was held around Capitol Square in 1973. “They were one year behind, but I guess we give ’em a little grace on the premise that they had an 18-month-old son, and they had twins that October of ’72,” said Tim Woller, who along with his sister, Tamara Woller-Li, was one of those twins.
“They were one year behind, but I guess we give ’em a little grace on the premise that they had an 18-month-old son,” “They were one year late, but I guess we give ’em a little grace on the assumption that they had a son who was 18 months old,” said the judge. “Throughout the course of that first year, they were fairly preoccupied with other things.”
Her husband Tim’s father has a reputation for being “an amazing beekeeper and a fantastic instructor,” according to Cathy Woller, who is married to Tim. Cathy Woller is Tim’s stepmother. He was a guide and teacher to an uncountable number of people who wished to start their own beekeeping businesses.
