She was a great woman. I will miss her dearly, My thoughts and prayers go out to the Makarewicz family.
Once again our lifelong friendship, our caring love, and sympathy go out to Joseph Jr. & Rosalie & the Makarewicz Family in their loss of another cherished member of their close large Polish Catholic Family. Joe Junior & I (CASIMER LEO DZWIK) made our First Holy Communion together(with 3 other girls) in the old St, Thomas Aquinas Church in Elmira on June 30, 1946-(74 yrs. ago). We now have 2 of own family members that are nurses in the Beaumont Hospital System. – XOX & HUGS from Battle Creek- CAMY & ALICE & our DZWIK Family.
A beautiful lady from a great family. I never met her, but some of her brothers & sisters have been friends since we moved to the area in 1978, and left the area in 2019. My prayers go out for the Makarewicz family, whose name I love to pronounce!
