Mitzi had a love for song and dance, and volunteered at VSO and dance clubs during the Korean War. She was employed by various businesses in the Sauk Prairie area. Mitzi was a very spiritual person, and one of her greatest loves was her Bible studies with her friends. When it came to faith, she spoke it in capital letters and enjoyed to talk of God. She will be deeply missed by her best friend, her dog Lucy, who she shared all of her meals and bed with. Her grandchildren will deeply miss her games of cards, goofing around with Grandma, and her stories and stories and stories.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Robert "Bobby" Gowdy.

A memorial service will be held at HOOVERSON FUNERAL HOME, Sauk City, at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 3, 2013, with Pastor Dwight Pulsfus officiating. Friends may call at the funeral home from 4:00 p.m. until the time of service.

The family would like to thank St. Clare Hospice of Baraboo, for all their loving care. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to St. Clare Hospice.
