Janice M. Kolitz

Janice M. Kolitz (nee Csiacsek) of Hartford went to be with her Lord on Monday, Oct. 16, 2006 at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee after losing her courageous battle with the devastating effects of Multiple Sclerosis. Her will to beat this disease was stronger than anything imaginable.

She was born July 20, 1955 in Burlington, Vt. to James and Stella (nee Bergeron) Csiacsek. She married Charles Kolitz on July 25, 1991.

Janice graduated from Beaver Dam High School in 1973. She attended MATC in Madison and obtained her paralegal associates degree. She had been employed by Wausau Insurance for a time and was an independent beauty consultant for Mary Kay for several years. She obtained countless unit achievement awards. She was employed and retired from the Wisconsin and Southern Railroad Co. She had many titles at the railroad. She was a lifelong member of the Catholic Church. She enjoyed cooking, fishing and grouse hunting and was a very devoted Packer and Brewer fan. Her greatest love was being a grandmother.

She is survived by her loving husband, Charles; her daughter, Jessica (Rich) Wellner (Beilfuss) of Knoxville, Tenn.; her stepson, Troy Kolitz of Jacksonville, Fla., and stepdaughter, Dawn Garcia (Kolitz) of Madison; her grandchildren, Richie and Reese Wellner and Kayla, Schae, and Trey Kolitz; her father, James (Becky) Csiacsek; her brothers, Peter, Michael (Peg), Timothy (Chris) and Patrick Csiacsek; and her sisters, Noelle (David) Brandenburg, Mary Ann (Mike) Otto and Bonnie Ellis. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Janice was preceded in death by her mother, Stella Diana Csiacsek; and her grandparents, Jacob and Ana Csiacsek and Origene and Clara Bergeron.
