Przesmicki, Martin (29 MAY 1888 - 5 MAR 1967)

On Tuesday, March 71967 Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church, 2468, N. Ridgeway Ave., Chicago, Ill., was the scene of a Solemn High Mass offered for the soul of Martin Przesmicki, 78, who passed away at his home at 2515 N. Sawyer Ave., Chicago, on Sunday, March 5, 1967. His death was due to arteriosclerotic heart disease with eventual heart failure. Father Charles Obie acted as chief celebrant.

Martin Przesmicki was born in Poland, May 29, 1888. He came to the United States at the age of 17 and contracted a job for the railroad in Superior, Wis. On May 29, 1916, in that city, he was joined in Holy Matrimony to the former Sophie Mroz of Thorp (Clark Co.), Wis. Some years later the couple settled in Chicago for a short time; then they moved to Thorp, where they engaged in farming until 1950, when Martin's ill health forced him to give up his occupation. They then retired to Chicago where he lived until death.

Funeral arrangements were handled by Maloney Funeral Home, 2950 W. Fullerton Ave., Chicago. Interment was at St. Adalbert's Cemetery, Niles, Ill. Pallbearers were P.T. Wallace, Alex Bogacz, Nick Dobrzynski, Nick Kowieski, Paul Jarocki, all of Chicago, and Earl Goldberger, Berwyn, Ill. Following services, a luncheon was held at Tromba's Restaurant, Niles, Ill., with about 50 persons in attendance.

Mr. Przesmicki is survived by his wife Sophie, three sons, namely Joseph of Minneapolis, Raymond of Chicago, and Louis, Wausau; one daughter, Mary (Mrs. Ray Rhodes) of Chicago, one brother Leonard of Schiller Park, Ill., and eight grandchildren.

Martin was a long time member of the Polish National Alliance, Thorp, Wis., Lodge 646, where he served as secretary for many years.
