Stroetz, Jane Marie (McGivern) (13 APR 1935 - 22 MAR 2016)

Jane Marie (McGivern) Stroetz, age 80 of Stratford, passed away peacefully with her family by her side, early Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at Miller's Alternative Care in Marshfield, WI.

A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 am on Monday, March 28, 2016 at Zion United Methodist Church (2106 N. Peach Avenue) in Marshfield. Visitation will be held at the church from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. Burial will take place at a later date.

Jane was born on April 13, 1935, the daughter of Andy and Nettie (Bradley) McGivern in Marshfield, WI. She attended Stratford Schools.

On February 2, 1952 Jane was united in marriage to the love of her life Donald Stroetz at The Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. Don and Jane owned and operated Stroetz's Tap for 17 years. Jane also was a proud home maker and loving mother.

Jane and Don enjoyed snowmobiling. They also loved to go on road trips gambling; and she sure had the luck of the Irish. She especially enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren at the many family get togethers, Christmases, Birthdays, and potlucks. There were many happy times spent up north at the Cottage. Those that knew Jane best will miss her laughter.

Jane is lovingly survived by her husband: Don; her children: Mary Jane (David) Swenson, Nancy (Gene) Schneider, Patty Kmiec, Jim Stroetz, Barb Peterson, Karen (Leonard) Daniels; her grandchildren: Mark (Tina Worzella) Swenson, Andy Swenson, John (Heather) Swenson, Terri Vanderboom, Brenda (Matt) Churkey, Mike (Tammy Livingston) Kmiec, Justin Peterson, Devan, Colin, and Brandon Daniels, Michelle Heiman; as well as 6 great grandchildren. She is further survived by her siblings: Mike (Jane) McGivern and Mary (John) Kirsten. She will truly be missed.

Jane was preceded in death by her parents; son-in-laws: Tom Kmiec and Russ Peterson; as well as her brothers: Jerry, Bill, and Pat.

Special thank you to Atrium Acute Care Center; Tammy and Staff at Miller Alternative Care; and the special angel Donna Mae for the kind thoughts and words that Jane shared with her on Monday evening. Thank you to Pastor Mike and anyone else who may have visited Jane.
