Andrea Deanne (Theabo) Granditzke, 39, passed away peacefully at her home on May 15, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. After a courageous battle against Osteosarcoma, the Lord came and took her by the hand to walk with her to Heaven where she would join all those who were waiting with open loving arms to welcome her.
Andrea was born on May 26, 1980 to parents Gary and Cindy Theabo. She graduated from Neenah High School in 1998, married her high school sweetheart Jacob Granditzke, and had three beautiful daughters. She graduated from college in 2015 with a degree in Medical Coding. Andrea had worked for Subway, Shopko, Goodwill and Affinity/Ascension.
Andrea will always be remembered by her positive outlook, vibrant personality, and her beautiful smile that cancer could not take away. She was an inspiration to her family and all who knew her. Andrea loved spending time with her family and friends. She raised her girls to love God, life, nature, music, and dance. She taught them how to cook, bake, crochet, sew, and about gardening. Andrea enjoyed and cherished the time spent with her girls creating any and all things arts and crafts related. Purple was her favorite color. She loved gardening, taking long walks, hiking, running, biking, working out, staying healthy and fit.
She is survived by her husband Jacob Granditzke, her children Mary Jane, Madison and Jenna Granditzke, stepdaughter Shelby Granditzke, granddaughters Aurora and Mayla, parents Gary and Cindy Theabo, sisters Amanda King (Mike), Atonia Kamara, Annette Debois (Robert), Nieces and Nephews Corey and Christopher King, Robin Crooks, Nairobi and Isaiah Kamara, Desiree and Darwin Borrely Theabo.
She was preceded in death by grandparents Earl and Elaine Theabo, Donald and Carole Bauer, Aunts Rose Prader, Cheri Schulke, Connie Mandel, Gwen Theabo, Uncle Richard Hare, and Nephew Rasheed Kamara.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Ascension Hospice and Froedtert Medical in Milwaukee for all the care they provided during Andrea’s surgeries, treatments, and hospice care.
A private memorial service will be held with family members on May 30, 2020 at 10:00 AM.
