Jasinski, Edward (10 May 1923 - 24 June 2015) With Flag
Edward Jasinski, age 92, passed away at Oakbrook Rehab Center on June 24, 2015. He was born in Thorp, WI on May 20, 1923, to Michael and Katherine Jasinski. Because of his mother’s disabilities, he was needed to help on the farm and in the home. In February 1945, he enlisted in the Army and served until October 1946 in Japan and the Philippines. Upon returning home, he drove a cattle truck for the Stewart Brothers. He also worked and managed a farm for Doc Nolechek. Then for 14 years, he worked for Clarence Fisher at the Ace Hardware Store. In 1953, and for 50 years, he owned and operated a farm in Lublin. He retired in 2003 into an apartment in Thorp, where he lived for 12 years, before moving into Oakbrook Rehab Center.
Ed was married to Irene Peleschak, first in a civil union in Chicago on February 10, 1945, before entering the service. On July 18, 1945, they were married in a wedding ceremony at Holy Assumption Orthodox Church in Lublin, WI. Their daughter, June, was born to them in December 1945.
In his lifetime, he served as President of the Village of Lublin, and on the village board for 18 years. He also served on the council of his church. He was active in the Roosevelt Rod & Gun Club. He was also an active member of the American Legion, first in Lublin and then in Thorp. Ed was an avid hunter and fisherman, making many trips to Wyoming.
During their many years together, Ed and Irene enjoyed traveling, dancing and card playing.
Ed is survived by his wife, Irene, of 69 years and 11 months; his grandsons: Ian Revak and Nicholas Revak; and one great-granddaughter, Sarah Revak.
He is predeceased by his daughter, June; his parents; three brothers: Raymond, Henry and Leonard Jasinski; and three sisters: Frances Nied, Violet Zelent and Reggie Jenkot.
Funeral services for Ed were conducted on Saturday, June 27th at 2:00 p.m., with full military rites, at Holy Assumption Orthodox Church in Lublin. Pallbearers were his grandson, Nicholas Revak; his nephew, Gary Wozniak; and four members of the Thorp American Legion Post 118.
