Janice “Edna” M. Smarzinski (Weber), age 63 of Menasha, passed away February 19, 2022 surrounded by those who loved her most. She was born in Appleton, WI to Clifford and Marge Weber on May 6, 1958. She married her soulmate, Mike J. Smarzinski on April 10, 1992 and raised four children together.
Jan enjoyed birdwatching – especially cardinals, but Jan’s family and friends is what she cherished most, spending as much time with them as she could. Whatever her grandkids were doing – from horseback riding to wrestling – she was there rooting them on.
Jan is preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Lee and Dale Weber; and her nephew, Craig Weber.
Jan is survived by her husband, Mike; her children, Peter (Connie) Taff, Kristin (Jerry Galowski) Jensen, Tiffany (Matt Benzshawel) Taff, and Travis Smarzinski; her grandchildren, Natalee, Trenton, Hunter, Richard, Savannah, Maysen, Kyra, Alabama, and Skyla; siblings, Larry (Pat) Weber, Jeanne (Jim) Weber-Wegand, Diane (Keith) Rieben, Mary Weber, Jean (Mark) Kastenholz, and Pam Lamia; as well as many other “children” she took under her wing over the years.
A memorial visitation will be held on Friday, February 25 from 2-4 PM at Wichmann Funeral Home Tri-County, 1592 Oneida St, Menasha, WI, with a memorial service to follow at 4 PM. Please consider leaving an online condolence for Jan’s family.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the nursing staff at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Neenah for their hospitality and helpfulness while Jan was under their care.
