Obituary

Karen “Pogo” Pogorzelski (73) - mom, grammy, G-ram, and friend to many, passed peacefully on December 23, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband, Tom “Pogo” Pogorzelski. Her memory will be carried on by her children Shelly Kerwin and Jeff Pogorzelski, and by her grandchildren Dexter (Shannon) Paige and McKenna (Joe) DiMaggio.

Karen, in all of her essence, was a family woman - supporting her husband, children, and grandchildren through all of their endeavors in life and never missing a thing.

She was an essential part in both Outhouse Engineering and Race Bolt for many years, all while partnering with Tom and their kids in dirt track racing and cruising around in their street rod across the nation.

Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Karen will remember her for being quick witted, her sense of humor, and her contagious laugh. We find happiness in knowing that Tom and Karen are cruising the open roads together again!

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 8, 2020 from 5:30 - 7:00pm, followed by a memorial service at Hartson Funeral Home in Hales Corners, WI. The memorial service will be streamed live on the Hartson Funeral Home Facebook page.
