Gorski, Elizabeth "Betty"
Elizabeth "Betty" Gorski, 89, Rothschild, died Sunday, July 14, 2013 at Wausau Manor, under the care of Aseracare Hospice.
She was born August 28, 1923 in Marathon, daughter of the late Frank and Elizabeth (Karlen) Sulzer. On June 29, 1946, she married Michael A. Gorski at St. Michael Catholic Church, Wausau. He preceded her in death on November 30, 2005.
For several years, Elizabeth worked at Rondeau Cheese Corp. Above all, she was a wonderful homemaker, and enjoyed flower gardening, canning, especially garlic dill pickles as well as cooking—her Italian spaghetti and meatballs were the best! Most of all, she loved taking care of her family and was always worried about her children.
Survivors include, four children, Randy (Judy) Gorski, Wausau, John (Susan) Gorski, Oshkosh, Steven Gorski, Rothschild and Mary (Dr. James) Marshall, Fitchburg; three grandchildren, Matthew (Jeanne) Gorski, Weston, Brett (Tracy) Gorski, Oshkosh and Grant (fiancé, Stephanie Lange) Gorski, Oshkosh; four great-grandchildren, Malik, Hayden, Liam and Linnea; and one sister-in-law, Clara Sulzer, Marathon.
Besides her parents and husband, Michael, she was preceded in death by one daughter-in-law, LeAnn Gorski; five brothers, Alfred "Fritz", Walter, Herbert, Wallace and LeRoy "Sonny" Sulzer; and three sisters, Clara Forkins, Freida Bartig and Lillian Milar.
A private funeral mass was held Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at St. Mark Catholic Church, Rothschild. Entombment was in the Memorial Chapel Mausoleum, Restlawn Memorial Park, Wausau. The Very Rev. Allan Slowiak presided.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to all the doctors, especially Dr. Bill, and the staff at Wausau Manor, Rennes Health and Rehabilitation Center and Aseracare Hospice for the wonderful care and support given to Elizabeth and our family.
