Betty Marciniak (Pachniak)
Betty A. Marciniak, 92, Mosinee, died Sunday, May 13, 2018, at Rennes Health and Rehab Center, Weston.
She was born on October 3, 1925, the daughter of the late Joseph and Magdalena (Rzeszut) Pachniak. She married Stanley Marciniak on Nov. 4, 1944 at St. Francis Xavier Church, Knowlton. He preceded her in death on Oct. 8, 1997.
Betty ran the Swamp Inn Tavern in Dancy for 28 years. After she sold the tavern, she continued bartending well into her 80’s. She enjoyed bowling, playing pool, throwing darts, and watching sports, especially the Packers and the Brewers. Once she got to Rennes, she enjoyed doing puzzles, playing bingo and making jewelry. She continued her tradition of being the queen of dress-up for every holiday. Her biggest joy was faith, family and friends.
