Obituary For Mandi Jo Krenzelok
Mandi Jo Krenzelok, 45, of Bloomer passed away Saturday, January 13, 2024 at Mayo Clinic Health Systems-Bloomer.
Mandi was born to Larry and Pamela (Mann) Strasburg on October 17, 1978 in Eau Claire. She grew up in Fall Creek, WI on the family farm. Mandi was the oldest of 6 siblings, which was a role that came naturally to her. She was the best, plain and simple. She graduated from Fall Creek High School and married Seth Thomas and had 3 children. After several years of marriage, she then met and married Jesse Krenzelok and moved to Bloomer. She was a devoted and loving wife and mother, putting all of her energy and work ethic developed from working on her father’s farm as a girl into everything she did. Professionally, Mandi was a mother first, and remained home with the children as they went through Elementary and into middle school. She was a manager at Fazoli’s for several years; she also worked at a few local businesses in Bloomer before finding a great place to work at Bloomer Bakery, where she was well-known and loved by the customers, and returned the favor of being a homemaker by nursing her husband back to health after a near-fatal car accident. Family was everything to Mandi. She was always making plans for not only their family, but also about how their family could best help the community they lived in and loved. Mandi was genuine and kind. She doted on her family, pets, and even the local wildlife, maintaining several bird feeders and feeding the squirrels and bunnies in the backyard, and loved the outdoors, often preferring to go out hiking with her husband. Fiercely independent and absolutely fearless, she had a “spooky” disposition that sometimes intimidated people, much like the character Wednesday Addams that she and her husband used to create a home life that was always interesting and fun, full of ghost stories, art and a “haunted house” vibe that masked a dear and gentle heart of 24-karat gold like camouflage, and she will be forever loved and dearly missed by anyone who had the privilege of knowing her.
Mandi is survived by her husband, Jesse Krenzelok; son, Ethan Thomas; daughters, Emma Thomas, and Jenna Thomas; brothers, Zach (Katie Prudhom) Strasburg, AJ Strasburg, and Ian Helding; sisters, Julia Strasburg, Kassia Strasburg, and Samantha Strasburg.
She is proceeded in death by her parents; grandparents; several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
The funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at 7 p.m. at Smith Funeral Chapel. A visitation will be held two hours prior to the service at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a college fund set up for Emma and Jenna Thomas. Condolences may be left online at www.smithfuneralec.com.
