Edward M. Jamrok

DORCHESTER -- Edward Michael Jamrok, 82, died unexpectedly, Sunday April 20, 2008, at his home in Holcombe.

A funeral mass will be held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 26, 2008, at St. Louis Catholic Church. The Rev. Benjamin Franklin will officiate.

Burial with military honors conducted by the Leach-Paulson American Legion Post 517 will be at the Dorchester Memorial Cemetery.

Edward was born Nov. 1, 1925 in Chicago, a son of Vincent and Anna (Myslivy) Jamrok. He attended Tildon High School and Lane Technical in Chicago. Following his education, Edward enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving during World War II on the USS LaGrange as a second class gunners mate.

Edward and Rose Mae Fitzlaff were married June 10, 1949, at St Gall's Catholic Church in Chicago.

The couple lived in the Chicago area where Edward was employed as a diesel truck mechanic for Consolidated Freightways until the time of his retirement. Edward also volunteered on the Pleasantdale Fire Department and later served as Fire Commissioner. Upon retirement the couple moved to a lake home in Holcombe.

Edward was very capable and independent. He enjoyed maintaining and fixing things around their properties, playing cards, square dancing and hunting. Edward was a life-long member of the Dorchester American Legion Post 517 and of the IAM Local 701 in Chicago.

He is lovingly survived by his wife, Rose; children, Roseanne Jamrok Bowman, Interlochen, Mich., Thomas (Judy) Jamrok, Glen Ellyn, Ill., William (Debbie) Jamrok, Houston, Texas, Richard (Diane) Jamrok, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and grandchildren, Melissa, Elise, Jeffrey, Amanda, Quinn, Ashleigh and Madeline.

Edward was preceded in death by brothers, John, Frank, Joseph, Lefty, Mickey, Ray and Adolph and sisters, Fran and Sophia.

His children and grandchildren will dearly miss his unconditional love.

In lieu of flowers a memorial has been set up for those wishing to make an expression of sympathy in Edward's name with The American Heart Association.
