Ruth (Kobza) Jelinek, formerly of King of Prussia died last Saturday in Irvine, CA. She was 93. Mrs. Jelinek may best be remembered as the Personnel Manager at JCPenney in the King of Prussia Plaza during the late 60’s and early 70’s. Mrs. Jelinek was also a proud member of The League of Women Voters. A photo of her taking the oath as President of the K of P chapter appears in a history of King of Prussia published several years ago.
Mrs. Jelinek is survived by her sons, Jeff of Irvine, CA and Ross of Collegeville, PA; her sister, Virginia Gordon, four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and an extended family of nieces and nephews.
A Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated for Mrs. Jelinek at the Mother of Divine Providence Church, 333 Allendale Road, King of Prussia, on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 10:30AM. Friends will be received from 9:30 – 10:15AM at the Church. Ruth will rest next to her husband Raymond at Calvary Cemetery, Matsonford Rd., Conshohocken. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made in her name to the American Cancer Society.
