Eulene Catherine Skszek, age 95, of Sumpter Township, died peacefully at Superior Woods nursing home early Saturday morning, February 17, 2018.
Eulene is the dear mother of Penelope (the late Benjamin, d. 2003) Loeb of Muskegon, and dear friends Doug Bledsoe of Belleville and Dee Blevins of Indiana.
Sadly, she is preceded in death by her husband of Joseph Skszek (d. 2013); siblings Thelma, Jeanne, Mildred, Harold, Clayton, Elizabeth, Priscilla, Francis, Jack, Marna and Dennis.
