Panasonic Model 5890 Microwave passed away January 20, 2016 in Black River Falls, WI. Purchased by Ed Olson at a JC Penny in Appleton, WI in 1980; Model 5890 resided in Hortonville, WI until 2011 when it moved to Black River Falls, WI where it lived and worked every day until its passing. Originally acquired to heat the occasional leftover and cook boxed meals, Model 5890 loved the job of heating of family meals, steadfast preparation of hot dogs, the warming of bottles of 4 grandchildren and endless last minute snacks. Model 5890 rose to promise and fame by standing the test of time and duration over its life by having its lighting bulb replaced only twice in its 36 years of service. Always there when a need arose, Model 5890 had the stains to show the love of a fast, warm meal. Survived by its brother; a Roper Washing Machine, Model 5890 will be missed. A small service will be held at Eddie’s Garage in Black River Falls, WI on Saturday January 30th. In lieu of flowers the family has asked for you to warm a meal in your own personal microwave on January 30th in Memory of Model 5890.
