Karen J. Van Hefty

Karen Joett (Walker Strojny) Van Hefty, 66, of Marinette, peacefully passed away surrounded by her family on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.

Born March 30, 1947, in Oak Harbor, Wash., she graduated suma cum laude from UW-Marinette in 1992. In 1996 she graduated from UWGB and Bellin School of Nursing, magna cum laude, where she received the Lucyanna Hitch Award for excellence, with a BSN in 1996. For 17 years, she dedicated her career to Oconto Hospital and Bay Area Medical Center (BAMC) as Director of Cardiopulmonary Rehab Services. She loved her work and the close relationships forged with her "boys." Her many patients enjoyed her counsel and candor. Both in person and on the radio, she regularly gave presentations on the topic of cardiovascular disease and in 2001 earned the "Outstanding Ambulatory ECG Applications Award" from the Cardiac Diagnostic Center.

She received certification of ACLS/BLS-CPR/AED in 2002 and had affiliations with the American College of Sports Medicine, American Association of Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Wisconsin Society for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehab, and the Wisconsin Nurses Association.

She served as President of Mothers against Gangs in the Marinette Area, Marinette Area Youth Task force and Marinette County Partnership and most recently President of the Caring Hearts Club at BAMC.

She enjoyed herb and flower gardening, cross-stitching, reading, cooking, nature, and a Good Friday night fish fry at the Honey Bear in Eagle River. She took great pride in teaching her grandchildren how to cast a spinning rod off the dock and canoe at the lake home in St. Germain.

Survivors include her husband of 37 years, Claude L. Van Hefty; five children: Mark A. (Kris) of Appleton, Michael D. of Rye, N.Y., Steven P. (Jillian) of Eden Prairie, Minn., Michael B. (Marcela) of Pace, Fla., and Rebecca L. of Marinette; eight grandchildren; her parents, Sylvester and Ruth Walker; siblings: Glen, Daniel (Heidi), Debby (Matt) Swieciak, Brian and Marcus, all of the Milwaukee area; five nieces and nephews; other special relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death in 1975 by husband, Daniel Strojny, whom she married Aug. 20, 1966.

Memorial service was held Monday noon, Dec. 30th, with visitation starting at 9:30 a.m. at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Peshtigo. Private inturnment will be held in the spring 2014. Her final resting place will be in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery Oconto.

Memorials are preferred to the Karen J. Van Hefty Memorial Fund established at BAMC Oncology Fund.
