Nancy Sazama (nee Thelen)
Saturday morning, August 20, 2022 we said goodbye to a wonderful wife, mother and friend. Nancy passed peacefully surrounded by her family, who will miss her dearly, but are comforted knowing she is no longer in pain.
Cherished wife of Steve Sazama, loving mother of Casey (Stephanie) Sazama-Schneck, and proud grand-mother of Nolan and Jared. Also survived by sisters Kathy (Brad) Hillus, Susie Oman, Patti (Jerry) Homan, Brother-in-law Jim (Vanna) Sazama, Sister-in-law Kathy (Ron) Narloch, and other relatives. She is further survived by many friends, who loved her dearly, including best friend Colleen Schmidt, the Myers Family, Joyce Comperda, Connie and Gene Pemrich, the Wojciechowski’s, and many others. Preceded in death by parents Kenneth and Betty Thelen and nephew Luke Homan.
Nancy may be gone, but we will all take comfort in knowing she will continue to watch over us and will live forever in our memories and hearts! We are all better people for having known her. Everyone that met Nancy loved her and everyone will remember her beautiful smile, her contagious laugh and the way she lit up the room by her presence. They’ll remember Nancy as a dog lover, someone who liked to keep herself fit, and an incredible cook. Some might even say her cooking was Delish-eoseius!!!
The family wishes to thank Arbor View Assisted Living for Nancy’s incredible care over the past several years, especially caretakers Nicole, Dennet, Jess and Jen.
A celebration of Nancy’s life will take place on Thursday, August 25, 2022. The family will be greeting friends and guests from 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM, with the service beginning at 3:30 PM at Krause Funeral Home, 21600 West Capitol Drive, Brookfield, Wisconsin. A private inurnment will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Association or the Luke Homan Foundation would be sincerely appreciated.
