Anton "Tony" Dombrowski

April 13, 1939 — July 5, 2016

Anton “Tony” S. Dombrowski, 77 years, of Appleton, WI passed away July 5, 2016 at Thedacare Regional Hospital-Neenah. Tony was born in Neenah, WI to his loving parents Anton J. and Cecelia (Wroblewski) Dombrowski on April 13, 1939. He graduated from St. Mary's Central High School and began his career with Menasha Corporation. He was a Customer Service Correspondent and dedicated to his work for 41 years before his retirement in 1999.

On June 15, 1963 he married Mary Lou (Bane) Dombrowski and expanded his family settling deeper into the community. His love of St. Bernard's Church brought him into service there in many areas. He trained children in the fine art of serving Mass and reached out to others not only volunteering as a Eucharistic Minister for Mass but brought Communion to home bound parishioners and those in nursing homes. He was truly dedicated to his St. Bernard Parish Community.

Following May Lou's passing in 2003 he again turned to his Church. He met and married Elenora (Miller) Dombrowski.

Tony is survived by his wife Elenora Dombrowski, his children Anton J. (Mari) Dombrowski, Therese (Harold) Peaslee, Christine (Jody) Zepnick, Lynn Mary (Bob) Wulf, and Timothy Dombrowski, his grandchildren Vincent, Sarah, Luke, Catherine and John Dombrowski, Brianna and Alex Zepnick, Christina (Jason) Byrd, and Joshua Peaslee, his great-grandchildren Logan, Daphne and Connor Byrd, his step family, children Richard (Laura) Miller, Laurie Marquardt, Michele (Dan) Miller Hayes, and Tabatha Wandrey, grandchildren Michael Marquardt, Ryan, Jonathon, Rachael Wandrey, Nathan and Alec Hayes. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
