Mrozinski, Wanda M.,
Our dear and loving Mom, grandma, sister, sister-in-law, mother-in-law and friend, passed away peacefully in her sleep with her five children by her side on Thursday morning, February 16, 2017 at Hoyt Nursing and Rehab Center in Saginaw. Wanda Marie Nellett was born on May 17, 1929 to the late Camille and Emma (LaFleur) Nellett in Saginaw. She attended Mt. Carmel Catholic Grade School and graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1947. Wanda married her sweetheart, Florian (Floyd) A. Mrozinski on November 11, 1950 at Mt. Carmel Catholic Church. Floyd predeceased her on February 7, 2008. Wanda was fortunate to be able to stay home and raise her family of five children in the 1950’s and ‘60’s. She was very involved in her children’s activities. Later she worked a number of years at Montgomery Ward and Wideman’s Babyland. Wanda was a people person -- always hosted large family gatherings and enjoyed many types of music and dancing. She and Floyd were big Detroit Tiger fans. She was always up for a good game of cards—this included being a part of two clubs, (the Card Club Ladies) for over 50 years.Wanda was a devout Catholic and dedicated to her church, to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to saying the rosary. She was very well known for giving out big and sincere Hugs.
Wanda is survived by her five loving and loyal children and their spouses; Dan Mrozinski and his friend, Anita Wierda of Saginaw; Dave and Jan Mrozinski of Millbrook, Alabama; Ann and Randy Kazmierski, Mary and Kirk Carlisle and Pam and Tim Sowatsky, all of Saginaw. Grandma is also survived by seven grandchildren who adored her. They are Stacey Kazmierski Corson (Tyler); David Kazmierski, Kate Mrozinski, Jake Carlisle and Andrew Carlisle, Kerry Sowatsky (fiancé Mason Fast) and Christopher Sowatsky. Surviving also are one extremely devoted and loving sister and brother-in-law, Jackie and Bob Richards; one caring brother and his wife, Jerry and Frieda Nellett, along with dear brothers and sisters-in-law, Clifford Cummings, Patricia Kent Nellett, Rita and Paul Aldrich, and Leo and Marcia Mrozinski and many nieces and nephews. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mom’s devoted friend and companion, Joe Clous, and his wonderful family. Besides her husband, Floyd and her parents, Wanda was also predeceased by her granddaughter, Julie Kazmierski, her father and mother-in-law, Anastatius “Norton” and Joan (Kubiak) Mrozinski and by brothers and sisters-in-law, Madonna Cummings, Cam and Dorothy Nellett and Bob Nellett.
Wanda and her family would also like to give special thanks and big Hugs to the great staff at Wescourt Retirement Community where she lived for the past nine years; to her caregivers from Homestead Home Healthcare and to Dr. Nik Kinachtchouk, M.D. and his dedicated staff; and more recently, to the staff at Hoyt Nursing and Rehab Center who guided Wanda through her final days.
