Sandra “Sandi” L. Gielow, age 69, New London, was called to her heavenly home on January 9, 2016.
Sandi was born in Clintonville on August 30, 1946 to Bill and Lulu (Schoneck) Ebert. She graduated from Clintonville High School in 1964, and went on to beauty school in Green Bay. Sandi was united in marriage to Dennis Gielow on May 20, 1967 at Christus Lutheran Church in Clintonville. She then found her true calling in life – being a devoted farmer’s wife and loving mother. Sandi’s heart was filled with joy any time her home overflowed with family, boisterous activity, and food.
Sandi is survived by her husband Dennis; children Dawn (Jeff) Klatt, Ann (Eric) Pinch, Kay (Jeff) Hutchison, Joy (Pete) Zuidmulder, John Gielow, and Scott Gielow; grandchildren Krysta and Alyssa Klatt, Jacob and Kasey Pinch, Brett and Chase Hutchison, and Colton Zuidmulder. She is further survived by sisters Elaine Mehlberg, Arlene Schultz, and Barb (Henry) Sawall, a brother Ken (Shari) Ebert, brother-in-law Dwain (Kay) Gielow, and an abundance of nieces and nephews. Sandi is preceded in death by her beloved son Todd, her parents, father-in-law Rolland, mother-in-law Margaret, brother Bill, and sisters, Jean, Lori, Mary, and Helen. She will also be greeted in heaven by many other precious family members.
Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Friday, January 15, 2016 at Emanuel Lutheran Church in New London, with Pastor Marcus Schulz officiating. Interment will take place 2 p.m. Friday at Graceland Cemetery, Clintonville. Friends may call at the Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory, Clintonville from 4 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, and at the church on Friday from 10 a.m. until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the family for a memorial to be established at a later date.
Sandi’s family would like to thank the many people that surrounded her with much love throughout her lifetime, and especially over the last several months. She was very blessed to have so many wonderful people in her life. And, a special thank you goes out to Unity Hospice and Green Bay Oncology.
