Amy Tomczik, 56, passed away unexpectedly on October 5th, 2020. Amy was born July 6th, 1964 in Merrill, WI to Bill and Nona Zortman. Her father being a florist by trade, she spent much of her youth in the garden. She would carry this love of nature with her throughout her life. Whether it be fishing, animal watching, or tending to the various plants and trees in her own back yard. Her nurturing spirit was also evident in the way she raised her boys. A family woman, she always put her sons first, never missing a baseball, soccer, or football game. In her later years, she took pride in helping to raise her granddaughter, Kennedy. Amy’s enthusiasm wasn’t just confined to her family though. She worked hard and played even harder. Her work ethic was apparent for anybody to see, hardly ever resting and always going the extra mile. As an adult, she channeled this tireless energy by staying active while playing women’s softball. To those that knew her, Amy was an outspoken presence who always wore her heart on her sleeve. Loyal, affectionate, strong-willed to the point of stubbornness, she was also kind, considerate, profoundly sensitive, and generous to a fault. Whether it be as a daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother, or grandmother, the best way to describe Amy would be ‘devoted’. Her absence is deeply felt by everyone that knew her. Nevertheless, we are grateful for the time we had. Amy’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of life far exceeds the amount of time in which one lives.
Amy is survived by the love of her life, Scott Tomczik, as well as her mother, Nona Zortman, her sister, Kerry Zortman, her two sons, Michael (Vanessa) Wiederhoeft, and Eric (Amber) Lokemoen, and her three grandchildren, Caleb and Eli Wiederhoeft, and Kennedy Lokemoen. She was preceded in death by sister, Cynthia Zortman and her father, Bill Zortman.
Services will be held at John J. Buettgen Funeral Home, Schofield, WI on Monday, October 12, 2020. Online condolences may be expressed at Honorone.com
