Simon Pronschinske, Jr.

Simon Pronschinske, Jr., age 55, of Fountain City, WI, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, February 13, 2023, at his home.

Simon was born on March 29, 1967, to Simon and Apollonia “Polly” (Pientok) Pronschinske, Sr., and grew up in Waumandee, WI.  He was united in marriage with Kimberly Kronebusch on May 22, 1993, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Winona.

He was self-employed in the construction industry, and most recently worked with Bi-State Construction, where he built large-scale poultry barns.

Simon was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Winona, the Fountain City Volunteer Fire Department, and the Knights of Columbus.

He will be remembered for his love of the outdoors where he enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing softball, throwing horseshoes, or giving a helping hand on various farms in the area.  Simon also enjoyed throwing darts, playing cards – especially Euchre and Cribbage, socializing with his friends, and cheering for the Brewers and the Packers.

He had many memorable trips including Lambeau Field, Hawaii, cruises, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, the Dakotas, and most recently Tennessee, and sporting trips for salmon fishing and pheasant hunting.

Simon had a big heart, and he was always willing to help any friend or family member who was in need.  He will be deeply missed.

Simon is lovingly survived by his wife, Kimberly; children: Noah and Emma; siblings: Wanda (Robert) Comero, Bruce (Carrie) Pronschinske, Sally (Jim Stanton) Urbick, LeRoy (Karen) Pronschinske, Bridget (George) Bronk, Arthur (Kristin) Pronschinske, and Pamela Pronschinske; Kimberly’s parents: Thomas and Arlene Kronebusch; brother-in-law: Jeffrey (Wendy) Kronebusch; sister-in-law: Kristie (Chris) Kronebusch; Simon’s aunt, Clara; many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews; as well as numerous other relatives and many friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11 AM on Monday, February 20, 2023, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Winona.  The Very Reverend Michael Cronin will officiate. Visitation will be held at the Watkowski-Mulyck Funeral Home, 376 E. Sarnia St., Winona, on Sunday, February 19, 2023, from 1 PM until 3 PM.  Visitation will also be held in the Commons of St. Mary’s Catholic Church on Monday, February 20, 2023, from 10 AM until the time of the Mass.  Simon will be laid to rest in a family ceremony at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Winona.
