Uldene "Tootie" Evelyn Jablonski, 88, Wausau, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 18, 2014, at Mount View Center, Wausau.
Uldene was born in Edgar on March 8, 1926 daughter of the late Paul and Marion (Kurtzweil) Grosskreutz. On October 29, 1952 she married George R. Jablonski at St. John Catholic Church, Edgar. George passed away on March 28, 2006 after 53 years of marriage.
Tootie cherished family above all else, always looking forward to visits from her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking and canning the vegetables George raised in his garden. After retirement, the Jablonski's enjoyed many activities which included traveling, dancing as well as many hours playing cribbage together. Tootie also enjoyed going for boat rides, a bit of gambling, and baking—the cookie jar was always full of her tasty treats.

Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a son-in-law, Mike Alft, two sisters, Leone Bodwin and Diane Eckert, three brothers, Kenneth, Darrell, and Eugene Grosskreutz, her stepmother, Clara Grosskreutz, three step siblings, Leona Hoffman, George Draeger and Reinhardt Draeger.
