kleinAlice Mary Klein nee Kulik,  age 84, of Lombard passed away February 24 at Central DuPage Hospital.

Our beloved mother, Alice Mary Klein, was born in Chicago, Illinois, on August 26, 1931. Her parents George Kulik and Mary Bajor Kulik emigrated from Poland to the United States, with a dream for a better life. Emily Kulik Pawlowski was our mother’s only sibling. Alice married Walter Guzior, and is survived by her children, Joanne Guzior Ash, Walter Guzior, and Josephine Guzior Schwankle. Francis Guzior, her son, passed on to be with the Lord, as did her husband Walter Guzior. Alice has two grandchildren, Alicia Ash Cornforth and Christina Ash, as well as, three great grandchildren Jinger Cornforth, Genesis Cornforth, and Ryker Cornforth. Bob Ash is her son in law, and Rick Cornforth is the husband of her granddaughter Alicia. My mother eventually remarried, the second love of her life, Frank Klein, who is with the Lord.
When mom was a young lady she worked as a bank teller, but after her 1st marriage she devoted her life to raising her children and taking care of the family. Mom was a member of the Masonic Organization, the Eastern Star. She enjoyed bowling, doing ceramics, going to lunch and going to church with her friends. She enjoyed travel with her family and friends as well. She would say that planning the trip was almost as much fun as the trip itself. Mom took delight in celebrating Christmas by cooking a feast for us, which always included a roasted goose. She was such a good cook and I remember coming home from school with cookies, or something yummy that she baked.
Going to the Itasca Country Club was a family tradition for Mother’s Day and Easter. There was much laughter over our meals and much joy at our family gatherings. You could say mom enjoyed life, laughter and all the people she met along the way. Her journey was a ray of sunshine to anyone she met. Even though her medical issues were challenging, she always found something positive in her life to be thankful for. We thank you Jesus for our mother. Proverbs 31:28a Her children will arise and call her blessed…
Mother had a strong love for Jesus. She demonstrated her love for the Lord in the way she lived her life with compassion and truth. She was always there for her family giving of herself, helping us through all of life’s crisis’s and celebrating every success. Her wisdom was a gift to her family. We are grateful for the lessons she taught us and especially for her never ending love. There is something special about a mom’s love that we will truly miss. We have lost our best friend, but she will live on in us, until we meet again in heaven, and won’t that be joyous! Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
A Memorial Visitation will be held Wednesday, 9:00 AM until the time of prayers at 10:30AM from Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main Street, Lombard to Sacred Heart Church for an 11:00 AM Memorial Mass. Interment will be at Assumption Cemetery.
