Tina Louise Podratz, 44, of Green Bay, WI, peacefully passed away on August 5, 2023. She was born on May 6, 1979, in Marshfield, WI, to the late Raymond and Kathy (Guenther) Podratz.
Tina was a beloved daughter, sister, and friend who will be remembered for her strong-mindedness, tenacity, and quick wit. She possessed a delightful personality that lit up every room she entered. Tina's interests included following and discussing court cases, engaging in conversations about pop culture, and exploring the world of make-up and beauty products. Amidst her many accomplishments, she remained incredibly humble, always prioritizing the well-being of others.
Left to cherish Tina's memory are her siblings Lori (Pat) Schmidt, Karla (Mike) Kollmansberger, Tom Podratz, Jon Podratz, and Jayme Podratz. She also leaves behind nieces and nephews Daniela (Sarah) Kollmansberger, Jerek Kollmansberger, and Annabelle Whittlesey. Tina was preceded in death by her father, Raymond Podratz, her mother, Kathy Podratz, and her siblings Randy Podratz and Timothy Podratz.
Tina received her primary education at Grant Elementary School and graduated with pride from Spencer High School, Class of 1999. She dedicated five years of her career to Goodwill Industries in Marshfield, where her unwavering commitment to helping others left an indelible impact.
While Tina pursued her passions, she also found solace in her cherished hobbies. She enjoyed the magic of movies, the resonance of music (particularly Aerosmith), and the escapism found within books. Tina generously donated her time to calling bingo at Upham Village, sharing heartwarming stories about her family's remarkable adventures.
To honor Tina's memory, a private service will be held in the presence of immediate family and dear friends at a later date. The family kindly requests that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made in Tina's name to the Davita Dialysis Center in Marshfield. Their deep gratitude extends to ProMedica Hospice and the compassionate staff at Bay Harbor Assisted Living for the exceptional care they provided during Tina's final days.
Tina Louise Podratz will forever remain in our hearts, her spirit of kindness and generosity serving as a poignant reminder of the love we shared. May her soul find eternal peace.
