Kryzanski, Mrs. Mike (1932? - 8 MAY 1961)


The mother of four small children was found dead in the family auto by her husband Monday - their firth wedding anniversary.


Clark County authorities ruled the death of Mrs. Mike Kryzanski, Jr., 29, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), was the result of accidental carbon Monoxide poisoning.


The body was found about 6:45 a.m. Monday by her husband.  It was lying in the front seat of their station wagon in the garage of their home.


The Thorp Fire Department was called immediately, but efforts to revive her failed.


Kryzanski said the family, along with a 17-year-old baby sitter, had been visiting in the Owen area Sunday afternoon and evening and had stopped at taverns in Owen in in the Town of Longwood during the course of the evening.


After an argument between Kryzanski and his wife authorities said she refused to ride home, but was taken there later by Mrs. Albert Novak, with whom the family had been visiting.  Mrs. Novak said Mrs. Kryzanski insisted upon sleeping in the car.


Authorities said she apparently became cold and started the engine to keep warm.  Kryzanski said he found his wife’s body as hew as about to start on a milk route.  He heard the auto engine running and quckly opened the garage doors.  He then called for the fire department and resuscitator.


The body was taken to the Thorp Funeral Home where funeral arrangements are being made.


Mrs. Kryzanski is survived by her husband; four children, Debbie, Mike, Theresa and the youngest, Sandra, eight months, and her mother, Mrs. Mary Roberts, Charleston, S.C.
