HURLEY, Wis. - Kathryn F. (Lundgren) Mieloszyk, 88, of Hurley, and formerly of Ironwood Township, Michigan, died unexpectedly on Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020, at the Sky View Nursing Center in Hurley, with her sons, Michael and Timothy, by her side.
Kathryn "Kappy" was born on Jan. 27, 1932, in St. Paul, Minnesota, and was the eldest of 13 children born to the late Henry and Margaret (Thomas) Lundgren.
On April 22, 1950, she married the love of her life, Raymond T. Mieloszyk. Ray preceded her in death on May 18, 1997.
As a young girl, Kathryn worked at the Hurley Ben Franklin dime store. Later in her life, when the Hurley Holiday Inn was constructed, Kathryn was hired to work there and stayed there right up until her retirement.
Kathryn was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Hurley. Kathryn's greatest joys were helping to raise her siblings and raise her own family. She later enjoyed spending as much time as humanly possible with her grandchildren whom she adored. Kathryn was an avid reader and enjoyed word search puzzles. She loved baking, sewing and knitting, and possessed many other crafting talents. Her favorite place on earth was her family farm in Ironwood Township.
Kathryn was a wonderful wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, who will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Surviving are her sons, Timothy (Kim Rowe) Mieloszyk of Saxon, Michael (Carolyn) Mieloszyk of Ironwood, Michigan; daughter, Diane (David) Staton of Warner Robins, Georgia; grandchildren, Sonni Mieloszyk, Scott Mieloszyk, Ryan Mieloszyk, Kathleen (Erik Tervonen) Mieloszyk, Kristine Mieloszyk and Michael Mieloszyk; great-grandchildren, Greyson, Cade and Avery Lauren; brother, Ray Lundgren; sisters, Janice (Syl) Florian, Joanne (Robert) Bruneau and Peggy (Joseph) Innis; sisters-in-law, Faye Lundgren and Janice Lundgren; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by an infant son at birth; a daughter, Kathleen Mieloszyk; a son, Raymond "Sonny" Mieloszyk; brothers, Ronald Lundgren, Richard Lundgren, Russell Lundgren, William Lundgren and Thomas Lundgren; and sisters, Marilyn Gribble, Judy Davis, Karen Sargent and Betty Aijala.
Until we see you again, "love your face."
Out of respect for Kathryn's wishes, cremation has taken place.
Due to COVID-19, a celebration of life will be held in the spring.
Private interment will be in Sunset Acres Cemetery in Ironwood Township in the spring.
The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at the Sky View Nursing Center for their support and devoted care to Kathryn while she was a resident there.
