Dear Patrick, Jackie and Marianne: Great picture, this is how I remember your mother. She was always pleasant and helpful. I don't remember her ever being cross although I know Patrick and I were not always the angels people thought we were. Its so difficult to say goodbye to your parents. I remember coming over to your house since grammer school and visiting with both Henry and Irene(Mr & Mrs Wnek to us.) Our prayers are with you and with your mom.

WE DIDN'T PERSONALLY KNOW IRENE: HOWEVER, HER SON, (PAT) AND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW (SUE) ARE VERY GOOD FRIENDS OF OURS. WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY. THE LOSS OF A MOTHER IS VERY DIFFICULT. MAY THE SUPPORT AND LOVING CONCERN OF YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS BRING YOU COMFORT AND STRENGTH.

I remember the wonderful kitchen conversations in the Wnek homes when they lived in Chicago and Park Ridge, IL. Both Mr. and Mrs. Wnek were a wonderful couple, easy to talk with and listen to. The devotion of their children, Jackie, Pat and Maryanne are a testament to the caliber of parents they were.

I didn't personally know Irene; however, she had to be a wonderful mother because she raised three incredible children -- Jackie, Pat, and Marianne!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
