She was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church, was active with the Racine and Kenosha Parkinson’s support groups, and volunteered with the Harmony Club.

In addition to her parents and husband she was preceded in death by her brothers-in-law, Leonard Jarosz and Charles Piechocki.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 1100 Erie Street on Thursday June 21, 2018, 6:00 p.m. Private interment will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery, Hwy 32.
