Karen Swiertz (nee Pik), passed away unexpectedly on February 12, 2020 at age 63. She was a loving wife of 39 years to her husband, Donald Swiertz, and a loving mother to sons Steven (Megan) and Daniel (Allison) Swiertz. She was blessed with four grandchildren; George, Holland, Kate and Elle and she loved nothing more than being their grandma.

Karen is survived by her sister Cheryl Kaesberg and brother Mark Pik. She was preceded in death by her mother Lorraine Pik (nee Jablonski) and father, James Pik.

She is also survived by David and Evelyn Swiertz, Mary and Joe Cawley, and John and Amy Swiertz, as well as many nieces and nephews, friends, former colleagues at Slinger High School and her beloved Labrador, Mac.

Karen loved the outdoors and looked forward to summers spent camping, long walks, and gardening. She found happiness and excitement in all things and her positive outlook on life no matter the circumstances brought comfort and peace to those around her.

Visitation will held on Thursday, February 20th at the Phillip Funeral Home (1420 W Paradise Dr. West Bend) from 4:00pm until 6:45pm with a Prayer Vigil at 7:00pm.

Karen will surely be missed. Her beautiful smile and personality touched so many in a loving way. She was loved by all her students, coworkers, and friends. She had such a way with stories! She often talked about her wonderful husband and sons. Then the daughters-in-law and grandchildren entered her life and you could see her pure joy. We are all blessed to have been a part of her life. Love you, Karen.
