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.

Don, Steven and Dan,
We are sorry to hear about Karen. She was always so fun/funny to be around. From the days at SWG, to Scouts-Best Den mother ever, to camping with all of you and the infamous Seymour Burger Fest we will always cherish the happy and fun times our families shared. Dad and Mom enjoyed you as neighbors and offer their condolences too. Hugs and prayers offered for your whole family.
Love Lori and Doug Bertram

God definitely has a new bright light with him. Always smiling, always upbeat. Wonderful with all the students and staff. One of the nicest people I have ever met. My thoughts and prayers are with her family who've lost a very, very special person.
