Obituaries from Two Days Ago

Bosiacki, Benedict T. - Lemont  
Benedict T. Bosiacki Benedict T. (Bennie) Bosiacki, age 99, of Lemont, died peacefully on Tuesday morning, August 25, 2015, at the Mother Theresa Home in Lemont. Viewing will take place at 10:00 at the Mother Theresa Chapel, 1270 Franciscan Dr. Lemont, followed by Mass at 11:00 am. Burial will be at SS. Cyril and Methodius Cemetery immediately following the Mass. Bennie was born to John and Pauline (Balcerek) Bosiacki on May 16, 2016 and grew up in Lemont, IL, the oldest of three siblings. Like others of the Greatest Generation, Bennie grew up during the Depression, and as is true of so many, he rose above it to become a loving, loyal, hard-working, successful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and American. Bennie spent his youth in his beloved Des Plaines River Valley, swimming in the quarries, caddying at Cog Hill, and hunting in the woods and fields surrounding his home, often bringing home dinner for his family before heading off to school in the mornings. Bennie had a life-long love affair with baseball. He was an avid player in his youth and a fan until he died. He seldom missed a Sox or a Cubs game, watching on TV or listening to whatever station was carrying the games. In 1941 he was named the most Valuable Player for the Blesch and Welter Lumbermen, and when he no longer played he coached, leading the Westmont Babe Ruth team to a championship. Bennie was honored to serve his country during World War II, enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps where he became a member of the First Division. Bennie served in the Pacific and fought for his country in some of the war's most horrendous battles, Guadalcanal and Okinawa. Like so many of his contemporaries, he rarely spoke of his sacrifices and he never expected anything in return. After returning home, Bennie married the greatest love of his life, Lori Cwik, in 1946. They made their home in Downers Grove and shared 57 loving, happy years together. In 1948, Bennie and Lori welcomed their first child, Pam, and five years later, their son, Bill. Bennie worked at Western Electric as a machinist for 35 years. He loved gardening and during the summer could usually be found working in the garden, cigar in hand, with a ball game playing on the radio. The family spent many summer vacations fishing in Canada. Bennie bowled, loved golf, and generally loved being around people. He opened his home to anyone, whether it was for a cup of coffee, a conversation, or a safe place to stay. One of Bennie and Lori's greatest joys was having their granddaughters, Amy and Erin, stay with them for a couple weeks every summer. Bennie and Lori loved watching them play soccer and supported them in all of their endeavors. Bennie's passion might have been baseball but his love was his family. Bennie was preceded in death by his wife, Lori; his sister, Angeline Povalish; his brother, Edmund Bosiacki; an infant daughter; his nephew, Gary Povalish; his brother-in-law, Edmund Povalish; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Bennie is survived by his daughter, Pam Coley (Westerville, OH); his son, Bill Bosiacki (Luxemburg, WI); his granddaughters and their spouses, Amy Coley Tonti (Matt) of Columbus, OH and Erin Coley Kernohan (Kevin)of Cincinnati, OH; his great-grandchildren, Ben, Abby, and Will Kernohan; his son-in-law, Randy Coley, his daughter-in-law, Pat Stevenson; and several nieces, nephews, and in-laws. In the end, despite the many hardships he endured throughout his life, the Depression, poverty, the horrors of war, Bennie never succumbed to any of them, rather, he lived his life with love for others, gratitude for what he had been given, great faith, and generosity of spirit. He will be remembered as a loving husband, wonderful father, grandfather and great-grandfather, a good friend, and a loyal American. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that any donations be made to your local Alzheimer's agencies, the American Foundation for the Blind, or the VA.
