Obituary for Nancy Marie Lorenzoni

Nancy Marie (Ulmen) Lorenzoni

On August 25, 2022, Nancy earned her angel’s wings and joined the Lord waiting with open arms in heaven. She just recently turned 71. Nancy died at home surrounded by her loving family after an 85-day vicious battle with stage 4 Pancreatic cancer. She had been diagnosed on June 2, 2022. Born on August 15, 1951, in Green Bay, WI to Joseph and Dorothy (Gavronski) Ulmen. Nancy was the matriarch of 5 sisters and 1 brother. She graduated from St. Philip Catholic Grade school in Green Bay in 1965 and then from Green Bay Preble Public High School in 1969. Her first employment was for Murphy Insurance in Green Bay. Later she enrolled at NWTC Green Bay Campus to earn her LPN in nursing in 1971 where she started at St. Vincent Hospital. In 1977, she graduated from Bellin College of Nursing to be rewarded her RN certificate while also working in pediatrics. In December of 1977 she married Dave at St. Philip Catholic Church. Over the course of time, she became a mother to her 3 children: Matt, Luke and Katie. In 1997 Nancy was awarded her Bachelor of Nursing from UWGB and over the course of a few years she received her Specialty Certification in Infection Control Management and Later became the Coordinator of the Infection Control Department at St. Vincent. Nancy was also awarded the Outstanding Clinical Practice Achievement Award through the Kappa Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, of the National Honor Society of Nursing. All her nursing expertise and career was performed with St. Vincent Hospital. She finally retired after 42 years in 2013, the same year her and Dave sold their home in Green Bay and moved north to Woodruff, WI.

Nancy enjoyed her leisurely walks thru the neighborhood and especially the Raven Nature Trail; picking blackberries, biking, fishing, gardening, knitting prayer shawls for Holy Family Catholic Church and every Monday night attended snowshoe baseball in Lake Tomahawk. For the past 8 years Nancy and Dave spent February and March in Glendale, Arizona where they met and made many new friends.

Nancy is survived by Dave of 44 years and 3 children Matt of Manitowish Waters, WI. Luke and friend Lynn Wright of Woodruff, WI. Katie and Fiancé Stephan Rencontre of Minocqua and by her #1 grandson Noah also of Minocqua. Five sisters, Kathryn Ulmen of Green Bay, Julie (Ray) Lindeman of Ledgeview, MaryJo (Bill) Kress of Green Bay, Susie (Rick) Verheyen of Denmark, Peggy (Mike) Nemetz of Wausaukee and a very dear friend whom she considered a sister, Jane (Greg) Cornell of DePere.

Nancy is also survived by sister and brother-in-law Nancy and Roger VandenLangenberg and brother and sister-in-law Ken and Suzy VanderLoop all Green Bay. Aunts, Uncle, nieces, nephews, godchild, cousins, friends and colleagues. Nancy was preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Dorothy Ulmen and a brother Mike Ulmen and sister in law Diane VanderLoop. One of Nancy’s biggest fears was if she would ever be able to knit again and I would reassure her absolutely. So, on August 25, 2022, I can picture her sitting on the couch watching Heartland and knitting up a storm.

Donations will be divided between Lakeland Community Gardens and Holy Family Catholic Church Prayer Shawl unless otherwise specified. A special Thank You goes out to Father Jerry Pastor of Holy Family, all the people who donated food or visited. Nancy and Dave’s family along with Jane for their willingness to lend a hand. But especially, Matt, Luke, Lynn, Katie, Stephan and Noah, who were always there for her. You could see the joy in her eyes when they frequently stopped for a visit. Also, Compassus Hospice for your assistance and care and Dr. Yasar in caring for Nancy at MCHS Oncology.

Nancy always said after all this country’s turmoil over the years that she only believed in heaven, because we are living in hell on earth. After witnessing what she went through these past 85 days, we believe her.

Nancy, Mom and Grandma, may you rest in peace for you are, and ever will be, in our hearts.
