September 26, 1922 — February 17, 2018

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.

Following graduation, she enlisted in the Army Air Corps during the Second World War.  Mrs. Skszek was a devout parishioner of both Sacred Heart Church of Munising and St. Anthony's Church of Belleville. Eulene enjoyed gardening, singing at weddings and playing cards. She truly was a very regal woman, and will be missed.
