Zakrzewicz, Victoria (5 Dec 1861 - 15 Jan 1927)

Mrs. Victoria Zakrzewicz, who was ill but four days, passed away at her daughters home, Mrs. F. P. Neiman, Saturday afternoon, where she just spent one night, death being very sudden and unexpected. She had been suffering with asthma for the past twenty years, but was always able to work and very seldom was laid up.

Victoria Jaworska was born on Dec. 5, 1861, in Poland. On Jan. 14, 1883, she was united in marriage to Anton Zakrzewicz. In Aug. 1884 they came to South Chicago, Ill., where they resided until 1899, when they moved to Thorp, Clark County, Wis., purchasing 120 acres of wild timberland, which they cleared and were among the first settlers in that part of Taylor County, where she lived until her death. To them eleven children were born, of who four died, one daughter, 9 years, two boys in infancy, one daughter, Mrs. M. Winchell, two years ago, 26 years old.

Those who are left to mourn her untimely death are husband, Alex and Louis of South Chicago; Mrs. Charles Lep of Chicago; Mrs. Walter Tytor of Lublin; Frank, Mrs. Frank Lupu and Mrs. F. P. Neiman of Thorp; also seventeen grandchildren.

The funeral, which was largely attended, took place Tuesday morning, short services conducted at home by Rev. F. Kulig, then to St. Stanislaus R. C. Church at Lublin, where both Rev. F. Kulig and Rev. J. Balcer officiated. Interment followed in St. Stanislaus Cemetery.
