Michael “Mike” Wiencek , age 68 of Oxford (Peppermill Lake) passed away unexpectedly Thursday, February 10, 2022. Mike was born in Chicago on October 7, 1953 to Michael Sr. and Irene (Wolasiewicz) Wiencek. He worked as a service tech and in construction for many years and married the love of his life, Mary Jarzynka on May 10, 1980 at St. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Lemont, IL. Together they vacationed to their cottage on Peppermill Lake since 1984 and permanently made it their home in 1996. In 2010, they became owners of MNM Antique Mall in Princeton. Over the years, Mike enjoyed drag-racing, bowling and snowmobiling. He was always working with his hands, whether refurbishing an antique or rebuilding a car or remodeling the house, Mike always had a project to work on. He will be remembered for his 'weird' sense of humor.
Mike is survived by his wife, Mary, sisters-in-law: Karen (Rich) Luebs and Denise Cameron and brother-in-law, Alan Jarzynka. He also left behind several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents and Mary’s parents.
