Donna R. Grzywacz

February 8, 1948 ~ November 27, 2021 (age 73)


Donna R. Grzywacz, 73, Kronenwetter, was born to eternal life on Saturday, November 27, 2021, at the House of Dove, Marshfield. Her journey was accentuated by family members saying her favorite prayer, The Rosary, with their tears washing away the sorrow and brought a closure to the pain and suffering of Multiple Sclerosis and diabetes which she fought with courage for 40 plus years.


She was born February 8, 1948, in Sheboygan, daughter of the late Percy and Laura (Nettle) Livingstone. On October 3, 1964, she married Jacob J. Grzywacz in Battle Creek, Michigan. He survives.


In days gone by, her favorite pastimes included boating with her family, church picnics and dancing, camping, sitting by the campfire and visiting (otherwise known as gossiping). More recent enjoyments included the annual potato pancakes at the trailer in Sayner for 24 years, attending various KC events, socializing with relatives and friends and evening rides to view nature, and ending up at the ice cream shoppe.


Survivors include her husband, Jacob “Jake” Grzywacz, four sons, John (Fiancé, Cara Schmidt) Grzywacz, Brian (Sheri) Grzywacz, Patrick Grzywacz, Timothy Grzywacz; nine grandchildren; one great grandchild; three siblings, Marie, Kathy, John; sisters-in-law, Esther Clairmore, Caroline (August) Trzebiatowski, Theresa Blarek; many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.


Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by father-in-law and mother-in-law, Phillip and Katherine Grzywacz, daughter-in-law, Tracy Grzywacz, brothers and sisters-in-law, Sadie and John Bushman, Evelyn and Stanley Stroik, Leo and Marcella Grzywacz, Harry Grzywacz, Hubert Grzywacz, James “Jim” Clairmore, Conrad Blarek.


The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday December 8, 2021, at St. Therese Catholic Church, Rothschild. Rev. Joseph Albert will preside. Burial will be in Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Kronenwetter. Visitation will be on Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. until the time of services at the church. There will be a KC Rosary at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday at the church. Peterson/Kraemer Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Online condolences may be expressed at www.petersonkraemer.com


The family wishes to extend their sincere appreciation to Chris Erdman, RN at Wausau Manor, Holly Haupt, RN at Ascension Home Nursing, and the nursing staff at the House of Dove for the exceptional care and compassion given to Donna during her time with them.
