Dolores M. Kwasinski, 91, passed away in peace on January 1, 2019. She was born on April 8, 1927 in Chicago, Illinois to Charles and Hattie (Schwarinsky) Kwasinski, but spent her young life as an orphan. She gave back to society by holding a career for most of her working life as a teacher at Christopher House of Chicago; which she never considered work but her passion, and her students and faculty were part of her family. A widow, she was a single mother of two daughters, Carole and Cheryl. She raised her children in Chicago with love and her stern parenting. After retirement, she moved to Florida, volunteered at Senior Citizen Centers, and was the second parent to her granddaughter, Courtney.
Dolores was an avid Cubs fan and loved Elvis. In her free time, she did word search puzzles, walked everywhere she could, loved animals especially dogs, and enjoyed a good game show. Her sunny disposition brought a smile to everyone she met, and her smile very seldom left her face.
She is survived by her loving family: Carole Kwasinski (daughter) and her husband, Mario; Cheryl Suarez (daughter) and her husband, Joe; Courtney Croll (granddaughter) and her husband/ “4th grandchild”, Jeremy; Joseph Suarez (grandson); Dan Suarez (grandson) and his daughter (great granddaughter).
She lived by the motto on the Christopher House Wall: “There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t met yet.” – William Butler Yeats
And she leaves us with her most said phrase, “Thank you for everything.”
