She was the proud grandmother of George Bacik, Lindsay Bacik, Joshua Gorecki, Jade Gorecki, Cathy Gorecki, James Gorecki and Ryan Gorecki and great-grandmother of Alyssa and Seth Gorecki. She is further survived by her sisters, Arlene (Robert) Bruess of Wausau and Donna (Donn) Doss of Idaho, along with nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, November 29, from 9 a.m. until the time of the 10 a.m. funeral Mass at St. William Catholic Church, 440 N. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha. The Rev. Curt Frederick will preside. Entombment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery in Milwaukee.
