Jeanie W Sromek

August 28, 1947 — March 4, 2015

Jeanie passed away on March 4, 2015, after a yearlong fight against ALS, at her home with Greg by her side. Jeanie led a life full of laughter and love. She was always making others smile with her sassy sense of humor. She enjoyed helping others while working as a housekeeper for Neillsville Memorial Hospital, volunteering for the Blood Drive, working at the Central Wisconsin Horse Sale, and assisting with the Lights of Love.She said in the months preceding her death, "I have had a good life. I have wanted and needed nothing more. Who can say that?" She enjoyed simply spending her time at home with her family, at the pond with a cool drink, making personalized greeting cards for family and friends or doing something on one of her computers especially playing Candy Crush (Level 806).Prior to living in Neillsville, she grew up in Bellinger and went to school in Lublin, Thorp and Gilman. She then met the love of her life, Greg, when she moved to Chicago even though they grew up in the same small town in Northern Wisconsin.
