Genevieve Barbara Szwaczyk

October 10, 1921 - October 27, 2010


Genevieve Stasiewicz Szwaczyk, 89, was born Oct. 10, 1921 in Chicago, IL and passed away Oct. 27, 2010 in Irvine, CA. Genevieve is survived by her devoted sons Dr. William Stasiewicz and wife Carol of Reno, NV, Dr. Carl Stasiewicz and wife Linda of Whittier, CA, Dr. John Stasiewicz and wife Caroline of Irvine, CA, Dr. Paul Stasiewicz and wife Lourdes of Alexandria, VA; and loving daughter Judith and son-in-law Dr. Jack Brush of Richmond VA; beloved sisters Helen Hulsman of Michigan City, IN, Jane Nowacki of Munster, IN and Edna Lucas of Calumet City, IL; 16 cherished grandchildren and 11 endearing great-grandchildren.

Genevieve was preceded in death by her first husband, Dr. William Stasiewicz of Chicago, IL, her second husband Melvin Szwaczyk of Chicago, IL and blessed granddaughter Courtlandt Stasiewicz of Alexandria, VA.

Genevieve led a very active social and business life in the Chicago area until her move to California in 2001. She continued to travel across country visiting family and friends, was an avid bridge player and remained a steadfast member of her parish church. Genevieve’s health declined within the last year, yet despite physical pain she remained cheerfully optimistic. Her intelligence, curiosity and interest in life endured until the end. She died suddenly and will be respectfully remembered by her grateful family and friends. Genevieve always welcomed everyone into her home and heart, inspired all who met her and was a model mother and wife. Her beauty, elegance and loving spirit will forever be honored and her vibrant presence will be dearly missed by all.

A visitation will be held Sunday, October 31, 2010, 5:00-7:00 p.m. at O’Connor Mortuary, Laguna Hills, CA, following immediately by a Vigil Service at 7:00 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday, November 1, 2010 at 10:00 A.M. at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Irvine, CA.

    Dear Judy, Bill, Carl, John and Paul, My thoughts and prayers have been with you throughout these days. I know how much you loved your Mother and I know these days are difficult for you and all her wonderful grandchildren. I pray that you will find comfort in knowing that she is certainly in the loving presence of God. Much love, Liz
