Jennifer Walentowksi-Thomas

December 5, 1966 — March 15, 2024

Jennifer Walentowski-Thomas, age 57, of Gleason, WI, formerly of St. Francis, WI, passed away peacefully, her suffering is over, on Friday, March 15, 2024. May she rest in peace.

Jennifer Irene Walentowski was born on December 5, 1966, in Milwaukee, WI at St. Francis Hospital, the daughter of James and Kathleen (Gesinski) Walentowski. Her most treasured memories where of the family trips to Disney World and Las Vegas. She attended St. Francis High School, where she was a member of the softball, basketball, cross-country and track teams. She was also a band member during high school. She graduated in 1985, and then attended Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) and Milwaukee Business Technical Institute (MBTI). One of Jennifer's favorite things to do was to take trips and vacations to a cabin up north on Post Lake. She was an avid gardener, fisherwoman and cook, and she loved The Beatles.

Jennifer is the beloved mother of Jessica (husband, Thomas Perkowski) Walentowski, Samantha Thomas and Julia Thomas, and she is the proud grandmother of Hope Ann. Jennifer is also survived by her parents, James and Kathleen Walentowski, a brother, Jeff (Jen) Walentowski, nieces, Anna and Sylvia Walentowski, cousins, Lisa and Don, many more relatives and friends and her best dog, Lady.

Special thanks to dear caring friends, Tim S. and Rachel.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, a dear God Father, Pat Walentowski, a loving cousin, Debbie Michalek and an aunt, Shirley.

A private graveside service and burial will take place later this spring.
