Krawcyzk, Gladys (Gladee). Passed away peacefully on April 20, 2020, at the age of 92. Preceded in death by her husband, Elvin Krawczyk (11/2006) whom she was married 60 years. See Elvin’s notice below. Loving mother to Catherine Morgan and Joanne (John) Harwood. Dear grandmother of Diane (Mark) Blankenheim, Kristine (Frank) Gonzalez, Kelly (Jared) Wentz, Kimberly (Tom) Counsell, Katie (Michael) Murlas, Joseph (Kristin) Harwood. Great grandma to Taylor Greene, Payton, Owen, Sadie, Riley, Connor, Eddie, Eve, Hayden, Sullivan, Cole, Harrison, Preston, Elle and her dear family friend Susan (nee Gauger) Tadeo.
Gladys raised her family in New Berlin, WI, then moved to Gladstone, MI (21 years) and retired in Leesburg, FL (20 years). Gladee enjoyed golf, needlepoint, weekly bridge games and cocktail hour with the girls. She was blessed to see all six of her grandchildren get married and have children themselves. She loved spending time with her family. Laughing at the pool while watching the kids compete with cannonballs and ‘flying eggies’ always made her smile. She volunteered at the Leesburg Hospital as a Pink Lady and it’s where she also learned to be a barista. Living and working in Hawthorne Park, Gladee worked as TV program hostess sharing human interest and community stories.
She will be remembered as a devoted wife, loving mother, supportive and funny grandmother. Let us toast her full life and get a chuckle at a fun fact: Her golf cart was christened after her name the ‘Happy Bottom’.
Private burial at Bushnell Cemetery in Florida. In lieu of flowers, send donations to Autism Society of Southeastern WI. Thank you to Avalon Square, Heartis and AngelsGrace Hospice.
