Piatek, Mary (15 MAR 1880 - 22 MAR 1939)

Mrs. John Piatek passed away at her home in the town of Reseburg (Clark Co., Wis.) on Wednesday, March 22, 1939, after a long illness in which the efforts of skilled physicians to save her proved futile. She had reached the age of fifty-nine years and seven days.

Mary Pierzchala was born in Poland on March 15, 1880. She came to the United States in 1896 and resided in Chicago. On Nov. 22, 1899 she was united in marriage to John Piatek and ten years later came to Thorp with her husband and located on a farm near here. Her husband and six children survive: three sons, Stanley of Chicago and Albert and Leon of Thorp; three daughters, Helen (Mrs. Joe Kowieski), Frances (Mrs. Leo Juskiewicz) and Julia (Mrs. Nick Kowieski) all of Chicago, one brother, Stanley Pierzchala in Poland, and one sister, Mrs. Josephine Swider of Chicago.

The body lay in state at the Bogumill Funeral Home until Saturday morning when the funeral was held at St. Hedwig’s Church, Rev. S. Dzialdowski officiating. Interment was made in the parish cemetery nearby. Pallbearers were, Martin Cieciora, Thos. Gunia, Frank Pietras, John Nowobielski and Wm. Brzezinski.
