As printed in the Toledo Blade:
Helen Zawodny, age 83, passed away on January 30, 2006, at the Franciscan Care Center. She was born June 10, 1922, to Vincent and Josephine (Osinski) Pisarski. Helen was one of 15 siblings, 7 brothers and 7 sisters, all of which preceded her in death except for her youngest sister, Leona Fiser. Helen was a homemaker, and in her earlier life, she was a devoted crossword puzzle maven and a St. Hyacinth's Mom & Pop league bowler. She prided herself on her silky coffeecakes and cherry nut cakes. In her later years, Helen became reclusive, seeking solace in her reading, devouring literally hundreds of books. Helen was preceded in death by her loving husband, Daniel T. Zawodny. She will be dearly missed by sons, David (Dorothy), Thomas (Charlotte) of Xenia, OH and Joseph (Dana Forrest) Zawodny of Poquoson, VA; grandchildren, Jeremy Zawodny, April (Brian) Neff, Jason Zawodny, Loren Zawodny, Sarah Zawodny, Maria Zawodny and Eva Zawodny; great-grandchildren, Gabriella and Daniel Zawodny.
Family and friends may visit at the W.K. Sujkowski & Son Funeral Home, 3838 Airport Hwy., on Thursday from 2-8 p.m. with a recitation of the Rosary at 4 p.m. Funeral Services will be held on Friday, February 3, 2006 at 9:30 a.m. followed by Mass of Christian Burial at St. Hyacinth Church at 10 a.m. Entombment to follow at Resurrection Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family request donations may be made to the Franciscan Care Center (4111 N. Holland-Sylvania Rd.) or Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
The family extends a very special thanks to the tireless caretakers at the Franciscan Care Center (Sylvania, OH) where Helen spent her final months.
Grandma was interred earlier today.
