Jennifer Lynn Klubertanz

Jennifer Lynn Klubertanz passed away peacefully on November 22, 2017 at Agrace Hospice in Fitchburg. Jenny was born on August 1, 1970, to James and Kathleen Klubertanz. At the age of 15, Jenny was diagnosed with a brain tumor. At the age of 20, Jenny had her first two attacks of what we now know was SMART Syndrome that left her with speech and cognitive disabilities. In 2015 Jenny had another of many SMART attacks that slowly took her from us.

Jenny is survived by her parents; her brother James (Ronda) of Colgate, Wisconsin; her sister Joanna (Chris) Yanna of McFarland, Wisconsin; her nieces and nephew Grace, Gabby, Bella, Sophia, and Henry; many aunts and uncles. She was preceded in death by her grandparents Ralph and Doris Klubertanz and William and Ruth Hammersley.

The family wants to thank the many wonderful doctors, nurses, and caregivers who have traveled through Jenny’s life. Special thanks to Community Living Connections for their loving care of Jenny, especially Katie and her wonderful staff who spent countless hours giving Jenny the best care and for being there for Jenny and family during the many hospitalizations. Special thanks also to Amanda and Jennifer of Continuum Therapy who were instrumental in Jenny’s quality of life. Special thanks to Dr. Minichiello and Dr. Seeger who were on board to do things Jenny’s way. Thanks also to the many family and friends who supported us all these years. Thanks to Agrace for their caring support through Jenn’s final days.
