Irene Wilczynski–aka “GG”–age 94, of Toledo’s Point Place community, entered the Kingdom Sunday, March 3, 2019, at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, surrounded by her loving family. She had suffered a massive stroke the day before while amongst friends.
Irene was born February 6, 1925, to Frank and Francis (Lyskawa) Adamczewski. She retired as a meat cutter from A&P Grocery many years ago. She loved her faith and was a long-time parishioner of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
Left to cherish her memory are her son, Bob (Nancy) Wilczynski; grandchildren, Kim (Anthony) Canale and Tim (Julie) Wilczynski; greatgrandchildren, Jacob, Isaiah, Gavin and Violet. Irene also is survived by a number of very loving nieces, nephews and cousins, who were always available to do repairs and plumbing whenever she called. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Edward; one sister, and two brothers. Irene’s beloved companion, “Chia,” will be adopted, loved and cared for by her family.
Irene lived her life to the fullest! She loved to travel having visited Alaska and Hawaii with her husband; enjoyed lunches with her Diamond Club and had been active with a Red Hat Society and the Eleanor Kahle Senior Center in days of better mobility. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family or friends and being outside tending to her flower gardens. She will leave a huge hole in the hearts of many.
Her family would like to express their deep gratitude to her relatives, friends and neighbors in the Point Place community, who looked out for her, lunched or dined with her, maintained her lawn or just stopped by to visit as her eyesight began to fail, her hearing became limited and her mobility challenged.
Visitation was held Friday, March 15, from 12 to 1 p.m., at David R. Jasin-Hoening Funeral Home, 5300 North Summit Street, Toledo, where a Memorial Service followed in the funeral home at 1 p.m. Services concluded with interment in Calvary Cemetery. At her request, her remains have been cremated.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lucas County Humane Society.
