Richard "Dick" M. Gurzynski
12/21/2021

Richard “Dick” Marion Gurzynski, age 91, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, December 21 at his Hinsdale home. He was born April 3, 1930 in Chicago and married the love of his life, Dorothy née Jankowski, on May 7, 1955. Dick is preceded in death by Dorothy; his infant son, Gregg; his brother, Edward “Smiley”; and his sister, Melaine. Dick is survived by his children: Janice (Thomas) Nieman, Jacqueline (R. Michael) DeSalle, Jayne (Philip) Euwer, and Gary (Sally) Gurzynski. He was a devoted grandfather to Molly (Bryan) Smith, Kristina (William Jr.) Cossen, Philip “Bryson” (Lauren) Euwer Jr., Rebecca DeSalle, Benjamin Euwer, Amanda (Patrick) Barkley, R. Michael DeSalle Jr., Victoria Nieman, and Matthew Gurzynski. Dick loved nothing more than playing with his great grandchildren: Catherine Elise Cossen, Cameron Richard Smith, William Stephen Cossen III, Avery Allison Smith, and Layla James Euwer.

Growing up, Dick was blessed with a quick wit and an even quicker hand; he pitched for his neighborhood’s numerous baseball games and never missed a Cubs game. Dick served as a cartographer in the Navy from 1951 to 1955 while courting Dorothy. After their wedding, Dick put himself through college, graduating with a civil engineering degree. He later worked as a stockbroker, which led him to a lifelong interest in investing. Dick was also an avid golfer and belonged to several golf clubs, including Riverside Golf Club and Prestwick Country Club. Between family time, golfing, and keeping abreast of stock market trends, Dick was a busy man indeed. Dick and Dorothy also built a business together (CGI Automated Manufacturing), which their children Janice and Gary now manage. Among all these activities, they somehow found time to travel the world. Together, they visited every continent; favorite destinations include Australia, Canada, China, and of course Scotland for golf trips. When their grandchildren were growing up, they treated the extended family to annual vacations; favorite locations included Cabo San Lucas and Maui.

Dick and Dorothy had many impressive successes in their life together but would count none so special as their family. Dick and Dorothy set a beautiful example for their children and grandchildren with their marriage. They worked hard and loved their family harder. In almost 65 years of marriage, not a day went by that Dorothy’s “Dickens” did not make her laugh. Dick’s greatest legacy is his family. The love and lessons he bestowed on his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren are immense and will continue to be felt by all. His presence and jokes will be truly missed.

Visitation Monday December 27th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Funeral service Tuesday December 28th, prayers 9:15 at the funeral home, proceeding to Mass 10:00 am at St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church, Hinsdale. Entombment: Queen of Heaven Cemetery - Christ the King Mausoleum.

Jennie N. Roubal
12/18/2021

Jennie was born into eternity on December 18, 2021, joining her husband and life-long love, Jan K. Roubal, with whom she was married for 40 years, until his death in 2000. She lived independently at home until her death at 94 years of age. She was a remarkably strong woman, not just physically, but also in spirit and faith.

Jennie will be dearly missed by her daughters, Michelle Roubal, Heidi (Ernest) Pawelczyk, and Kathryn (Mitchell) Mazzone; her grandchildren, Ernie, Andrew, Sabrina and Mason; her brother, James Naumczik; numerous nieces and nephews, and her many friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, George and Tatiana (Prokiew) Naumczik; her sisters, Anna Johnson, Alice Shultis, Olga Mispagel, and Mary Kistulenic; her brothers, John and George Naumczik; and half-brother, Joseph Kowbel. 

Jennie was born Yevgenia in 1927 to immigrant parents from Belarus and Ukraine. As a child, her mother called her Genia. Her name was anglicized at school, and from then on she was Jennie, and nicknamed Jay by her many close friends and family.

She was a smart and determined woman, the first in her family to earn a Bachelor’s degree (University of Illinois,1951). A woman ahead of her time, she went on to a career which moved from a start as a factory secretary to that of vice president of the catering firm she owned with her husband, a certified executive chef.

Jennie possessed a great love of the arts, particularly opera and ballet, and spent many happy hours listening to music, attending performances, and dancing with her husband in her kitchen weekend mornings to polkas. With her sharp intellect, she enjoyed completing quizzes, crossword puzzles and games such as Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and Scrabble.

She relished travel and as a young woman took sightseeing trips with her dear friends Helen and Lorraine. Once married, Jennie and Jan would pack up the kids in the family station wagon for road trips to everywhere from Michigan to Manitoba. Before his death, she travelled with her husband and family to visit his birthplace in Plzeň, CZ. Later in life, she enjoyed visiting Helen in Colorado for road trips to Durango, Mesa Verde and Montana. 

She loved children, beginning with her own younger siblings, and then her nieces and nephews, developing close bonds with Blanche, Darlene, Evie, Ralphie, and Bonnie, among others. As a mother to her own children, she instilled in them a love of reading and a drive for education. She was creative and sporty, engaging her girls in everything from crafting to ice skating. After her husband passed, she dedicated herself to helping to care for and nurture her beloved grandchildren, especially her grandson Ernie, who has special needs.  

Jennie married Jan in 1960 in her family’s faith, Russian Orthodox. After marriage, she took her husband’s Lutheran faith and became a life-long member of Grace Lutheran Church (LaGrange). A service celebrating her life and memory will be held there on Tuesday, January 4th, 2022 at 11 am. Internment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the following organizations which assisted her family in helping her grandson:
