Cynthia R. (Fink) Etersky, 58, of Green Bay, formerly of Marinette, passed away Thursday, May 4 in her childhood home with her children and family by her side in Green Bay.
Born July 25, 1958, to Eugene and Eileen (Borkenhagen) Fink in Stevens Point, she graduated from Ashwaubenon High School in 1976 and worked at Wisconsin Public Service in Green Bay until 1985 when the family moved to Marinette when she stayed home to raise her children.
Later in life, she worked at BAMC as an Emergency Room Tech and Pharmacy Technician and also volunteered on the Ambulance Squad.
She loved walking her dogs, drawing, making things like jewelry, crocheted items and art from pieces of nature found on her walks.
Since 2005, she fought with brain tumors and in February of 2016, surgery impacted her speech and she depended on family and friends to communicate. She moved to Green Bay to be with her mother, whose health was also failing and they took care of each other.
She is survived by two sons, Gregory (Beckylynn) Engler of Green Bay and Jeffrey (Jacqui) Engler of Marinette; a daughter, Amie (Mike) Engler of Marinette; two grandchildren and one on the way; her mother, Eileen Fink of Green Bay; two brothers, William (Paula) Fink of Milwaukee and James Fink of Green Bay; two sisters, Kathleen (Doug) Shirley of Springfield, Mo. and Patricia (Rob) Fasulo of Green Bay and nine nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Eugene in 1992 and a sister-in-law, Anne Fink in 2001.
Visitation was held at Thielen Funeral Home on Tuesday, May 9 from 4 p.m. until time of the funeral services at 6 p.m. Pastor Gerry Mathisen officiated with burial in Riverside Cemetery.
