Barbara Jo (Kazmierski) Kramer, 60, of Bay City, our special, kind, caring, and loving Mom, companion, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend passed away on Monday, June 14, 2021 with her family by her side.
Barb was born on February 13, 1961 in Bay City, the daughter of Ronald F. and Judith A. (Hahn) Kazmierski. Barb graduated from Handy High School and went on to attend Delta College. She worked at Kramer’s and Steven’s Van Lines and was everyone’s favorite worker at Barney’s & Oasis. You could always find her outside, whether it was sunbathing, taking a walk, or just being out in the fresh air. She enjoyed taking trips to the casino, collecting nickels, doing crosswords, and above all, being with family and grandchildren; they were the lights of her life. Barb loved all animals, especially her Great Dane, and time spent at Bear Lake with all the memories that were made there. Barb’s outgoing, fun-loving and beautiful soul will be missed dearly for years to come.
Barb leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Tyler J. Kramer and Janelle L. (Thomas) Putman; loving companion of 15 years, Rick Andreske; his daughter, Sarah Andreske; mother, Judith A. Kazmierski; grandsons, Tommy, Gage, and Theodore Putman; siblings, Brenda (Timm) Burzynski and Bill (Shelley) Kazmierski; along with several nieces, nephews, and friends. Barb was welcomed home to heaven by her son, Adam Paul Kramer, and her father, Ronald F. “Who” Kazmierski.
Barb’s family will be present to receive visitors on Friday, June 18, 2021, from 9:30 AM until the time of her 11:00 AM Memorial Liturgy at Corpus Christi Parish (Holy Trinity Church), 1000 S. Wenona St., Bay City, 48706. Fr. Robert Kelm will officiate with the Rite of Committal to be held in St. Patrick Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the wishes of the family.
