This weekend, Dr. Kristin Grenier-Drenzek was laid to rest, as South Milwaukee lost a dedicated community servant with a passion for healing — and much, much more.
Please join me in keeping her family and many friends in your prayers.
You can see her obituary here, but Kristin’s legacy is much more than words on a page, made evident at her memorial on Saturday. She left an indelible mark on this city. And while I came to know her first as a small business owner — as well as a member of the South Milwaukee School Board and various city committees, including our Board of Health — her legacy extends well beyond that.
She touched so many lives, and leaves us way too soon. Rest in peace, Kristin.
From her obituary …
Dr. Kristin M. Grenier-Drenzek passed away peacefully Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021 at the age of 49. Loving wife of Nicholas Drenzek, Proud Mama of Lauren and Katelyn, Cherished daughter of Duane & Bonnie Grenier, Beloved sister of Jeff (Jodi) Grenier, Susan Grenier, and the late Charles Grenier; daughter-in-law of George and Gail Drenzek, sister-in-law of Doug (Jennifer) Drenzek and Jessica (Michael) Koepcke. Dear Auntie of Benjamin, Maddie, Aaliyah, Leslie and Sophie. Further survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Kristin was a loving, caring person whose main goal in life was to help people through her Chiropractic business in South Milwaukee. She met many wonderful people and always did her best to make them feel better. Her beautiful smile, quick wit, and sense of humor will long be remembered.
Most of all, she loved spending time with family.
