THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Mary L. Gwidt
Mary Lynn Gwidt, 55, of Oconto Falls, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes Thursday, July 24 at her home.
Born July 3, 1959 in Pulaski, to Adam and Ione (Moesch) Gwidt, she was employed at Carver Yacht in Pulaski and then for the United States Department of Agriculture, involved with the Gypsy Moth studies.
A small animal 4-H leader in Oconto County, she loved animals, especially Collies, she trained goats, chickens and dogs, but her longtime dream was to raise goats and have a goat dairy. Being a single parent, she was proud of her son, daughter, and grandchildren and loved growing large pumpkins for the grandchildren that she carved their names in. She also hosted Easter egg hunts for the kids, enjoyed camping at Boulder Lake and trips to Nicolet Forest for the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
She is survived by a son, Ken (Kim) Fischer, Spruce; a daughter, Correna (Doug) Krejcarek, Abrams; six grandchildren; two sisters and five brothers, Patricia Gwidt, Legend Lake, Gary (Kathy) Gwidt, Mequon, Sue (Tom) Kapla, Sobieski, Tom (Patty) Gwidt, Krakow, Mike (Theresa) Gwidt and Steve (Lynn) Gwidt, both of Pulaski and Tim (Mary) Gwidt, Green Bay; a sister-in-law, Tracy Gwidt, Green Bay; several nieces and nephews; and a godson.
She was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Dennis Gwidt; a nephew, Jeffrey Gwidt and a brother-in-law, Jerry Pawelczyk.
