Obituary for Britney M. Masewicz

Britney M. Masewicz, 25, of La Crosse, died unexpectedly at her home on Monday, February 5, 2018. She was born in Los Angeles, Calif. on June 2, 1992 to Roberta Masewicz. In 1998, Britney and her mom moved to Florida before settling in La Crosse in 2000. Randall Draheim entered their lives in 2005 making their family complete. Britney attended Harry Spence Elementary, Longfellow Middle School, and Central High School where she graduated in 2011. She attended University of Milwaukee until choosing to return home after her dad, Randall was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Words cannot express the joy she felt when she became a mother in 2014 to a son and again in 2016 to a daughter. Britney was most content and happy when she was spending time with her mom, who was also her best friend, boyfriend Kenny, and her children. She was full of love and laughter, often surrounded by many friends. Like her grandma Jan, she had will, determination, feistiness, and wasn’t afraid to voice her opinion. She enjoyed sports, but nothing like the love of fishing she had with her dad. Britney is survived by her mother, Roberta Draheim of La Crosse; children, Deklin Straw and Kammie Masewicz of La Crosse; stepsister, Sharon Draheim of Winona, Minn.; stepbrother, Brice (Danielle) Drahiem of Onalaska; Uncle Paul (Lisa) Masewicz of La Crosse and Thomas, Adam, and Jason (Lea) Payne all Of Janesville; grandparents, Charles (Christina) Masewicz of Onalaska, Thomas (Donna) Payne of Janesville, and William Emmer of Saratosa, Fla.; Cousins, Katie Stordahl (son, Colton) and Alyssa Masewicz of La Crosse, Tyler (Lauren) Masewicz of Mankato, Minn., and Nicole (Jeremy) Masewicz of Madison; Godfather, Daniel DuCharme, lifelong friend; Marissa Sutherland, and boyfriend, Kenneth Garson, all of La Crosse. She was proceeded in death by her father, Randall Draheim and her grandmother, Janet Emmer.
