She is also survived by five grandchildren, Scott Foster and wife Tammy, Clay Herndon and wife Tiffany, Brad Szalwinski, Dylan Krawietz, and Nichelle Szalwinski; and two great-grandchildren, Hunter Foster and Laurel Foster.

A rosary was recited at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 18, in the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church in Cestohowa.

A funeral Mass was celebrated at 10 a.m. Friday in the church, with the Rev. Andrzej Waszczenko, SDS, as celebrant.

Interment followed in the Cestohowa Cemetery.

Serving as pallbearers were Scott Foster, Clay Herndon, Michael Kluck, Dylan Krawietz, Brad Szalwinski, Nichelle Szalwinski, and Marty Jehnsonne.
