Issue Date: March 16, 2018
JoAnn Piontek, 67, of Green Bay, formerly of Wausaukee, passed away Friday, March 9, 2018 surrounded by loved ones.
Born May 24, 1950 in Wausaukee, to the late Joseph and Tessie (Jakubowski) Netupski, at age 18, she packed up and moved to Green Bay with $40 in her pocket. On Sept. 27, 1975, she married her best friend and started on her family journey. She worked at Moore Response Graphics (RR Donnelley) for 30 years and retired at age of 48 in 1998.
She loved time with family and friends and created many new family members on her journey. Her love of fishing, outdoors and the northern woods, took her to Crivitz in 1981.
She enjoyed traveling with her family on road trips, including Georgia and Florida. After retirement, Crivitz became her permanent summer home and she traveled in the winter in their RV, but after six years, in 2004 they bought a permanent home in Hudson, Fla.
She recently enjoyed pen coloring which kept her mind sharp. In Hudson, she was active and helpful in the Shadow Wood Civic Association and helped plan and organize many of the Park's activities. She had great organizational skills and shared her skills with many.
A giving person, she opened her home to many friends, whether family, friend or stranger and treated them like family.
She is survived by her husband, Larry; two children, Cory (Carla) and Brady (Renee); four grandchildren; two sisters-in-law, Linda (Steve) Couillard and Debbie Netupski; two sisters, MaryAnn (Bill) Mann and Debbie (David) Smith and a brother, Raymond Netupski.
Including her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, David Netupski and Danny Netupski; her father-in-law, James Piontek and her mother-in-law: Florence Piontek.
Visitation will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church, 808 Henriette Ave in Crivitz on Tuesday, March 20 from 10 a.m. until time of a Funeral Mass at 11 a.m., with Fr. Jack Harper officiating. Donations can be made to www.ASPCA.org in her memory.
