Shirley A. (Dudzik) Landowski

July 27, 1938 ~ September 2, 2021 (age 83)


Shirley A. Landowski, age 83, of Ringle, passed away on Thursday, September 2, 2021 at Gardenside Crossing of North Central Care, Wausau.  

She was born on July 27, 1938 in the town of Germania, WI, the daughter of the late Anton and Anastasia (Yach) Dudzik.  She married the love of her life, Sylvester A. Landowski on August 8, 1959.  He preceded her in death in 2017.

Shirley was fond of traveling with her husband Syl, making it around the continental US in their pop-up truck camper.  She and Syl also enjoyed fishing together and playing Sheepshead with family.  Faith was always important to her, and they both were sure to make time for daily prayers and Mass - even on camping trips.  Shirley was a homemaker and took care of the farm while Syl worked at Weyerhaeuser.  She loved her flower gardens and watching the birds - especially cardinals.  She enjoyed time spent with her family and was always known for being the first to arrive for family occasions and the last to leave.

Survivors include her daughter, Gloria (Dana) Degner of Weston, and their children, Brittany of Aurora, CO, and Emily of Venice, CA; one son, Timothy (Wendy) Landowski and their children, Elaina, Alexa, Jaydon, and Jordan, all of Birnamwood, and Danalee Alix-Lemmer of Knowlton. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Raymond (Rosie) Dudzik, and sister Phyllis (Harold) Mauritz.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at St. Agnes Parish, 6101 Zinser St. Weston.  The Rev. Gregory Bohren will officiate.  Burial will be in the Parish cemetery.  Visitation will be from 9:30 AM until the time of service at the church on Thursday.

The family would like to thank the caregivers of Gardenside Crossing for the loving care that was given to Shirley there.
