THE STORY:

 

Billi Jo Baneck

I was born and raised on a farm in Wautoma with my parents and my five siblings.  I currently work for Brown County Public Safety as a 911 Dispatcher and at Ruby Design doing the prep worked involved in making our customers’ events and weddings beautiful! I have been in a relationship with a wonderful man for 5+ years and am a step-mother to a 10-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son.

I am a busy person by nature so I very much enjoy my involvement with the public education team and mentoring team at work. I am also a 4-H adult leader and 4-H food stand manager. In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, baking and crocheting. I enjoy learning new things and meeting new people.

My first memory of dance comes from middle school when I watched a classmate dance in a clogging group. I was mesmerized! In the same year I watched the high school show choir perform for our school. I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.

Eight years ago I developed a strong passion for the Red Cross and the work that they do after losing my parents and youngest brother in a house fire. I have been committed to giving back to the people that were there for me in my time of need, and the first people there when I got home were members of the American Red Cross. My first welcoming into the Red Cross family was at the HEROES fundraiser put on my John and Vicki Jenks in their Wild Rose home. I was asked to speak to a group of mostly strangers about my family and how the Red Cross helped us. Since that day the Red Cross has become a part of me. I am currently a DAT (Disaster Action Team) responder and 24/7 dispatcher. I have also had the opportunity to speak at different events and share our family’s story. I’m not a religious person, so I found comfort in working with the Red Cross as a way to move forward and give back.
