Jeanette "Nettie" C. Winiarski (nee Deuser), 78, of Mankato, passed away March 1st, 2018 unexpectedly in Rochester, MN. Nettie attended Good Council and owned Winiarski Interiors with her husband Chuck.
She later worked at Carlson Craft until her retirement in 2005.
Nettie was an avid Minnesota Twins Fan, with a deep love for her 6 grandchildren. Each of them held a special place in her heart; she loved spending time with them and was their biggest fan.
Nettie was a devoted Catholic. She enjoyed fishing at her lake cabin, traveling, playing cards, watching musicals and working out with her silver sneakers crew. She had the most rememberable smile, a friend to everyone and "Oh my stars" will she be missed!
Nettie will be forever remembered by her children; Chuck (Dana) Winiarski, Amherst, OH; John (Alexis)Winiarski, Mankato; and Catherine (Jess) Franklin, Mankato; her grandchildren Megan Winiarski, Elizabeth (Lizzy) Erickson, Jess Franklin Jr, Charles Winiarski, Sebastian Winiarski and Stephanie Malm; her siblings John Deuser, Carol (Rich) Rollins, Pat (Pete) Kosbab, Dick (Suzie) Deuser, and Jerry Deuser; and many beloved nieces and nephews and great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 29 years Chuck Winiarski, her son Paul Winiarski, her sister Meris Deuser, sister-in-law Sandy Deuser and her parents Jim and Catherine Deuser.
In the true spirit of giving, Nettie was an organ donor, as well as gifted her body to science.
A memorial service will be at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Mankato on March 10th at 2 pm with a reception to follow at the Jesuit Hall. Later that evening there will be a celebration of life at the Eagles in Mankato at 6 pm on March 10th. Please join us in saying goodbye to our beautiful mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
