Celebrating the life of Megan Lenz

Megan Lenz

Megan Mary Monica “Mimi” Lenz (nee Mrowiec). Age 64 of Park Ridge. Beloved wife for 41 years of Thomas Lenz. Loving mother of Megan, Monica (Donald) Key, Abby (Michael) Pierce, Mary (Dashawn) Beal, and Thomas “Tommy.” Devoted grandmother of Seth Key, Westin Pierce, and Naya and Leighton Beal. She was preceded in death by her son, Micah; her daughter, Grace; her sister, Mary; and her parents, Megan and A. Kenneth “Ken” Mrowiec. She is also survived by her siblings, Kimi (Bill) Toter, Kenny (Julie), Jonny (Jodi), Andy (Robyn), and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Mimi was a lifelong Park Ridge resident. She was a graduate of Maine South High School and the University of Illinois. She was a full-time homeschooling mother for 20 years before turning her love of fitness into a second career as a personal trainer and yoga and pilates instructor at the Park Ridge Community Center. Mimi’s faith and family were her most important priorities. She and her husband, Tom, attended Willow Creek Community Church for 20 years. Everyone who met Mimi was touched by her caring and generous nature. She truly had a heart of gold, which she shared freely with others.
