Elzbieta Kardasz, 65, of Bensenville passed away Sunday, August 9, 2020 at her daughter, Marta’s home where she was surrounded by those that love her the most. She was born in Poland on February 13, 1955 the daughter of Henryk and Czeslawa Karczewski. She was born and grew up in a town in Poland, Bialystok. It was here where she attended school and it was while working here that she met co-worker Jan Kardasz in May of 1974. He was the love of her life. Jan served in the Polish army for a full year in 1975 and afterwards he made blushing bride, Elzbieta, the lucky Mrs. Kardasz on May 15, 1976. It was in that small town in Poland where they settled down and started to raise their family. However, Jan moved to America in 1990 and Elzbieta continued to care for their family until they were all reunited permanently in 1999 in the United States. The two of them made many sacrifices for their two adoring children and would settle for nothing less than the best for them. Jan tragically passed away in May of this year and it took just over three months for Elzbieta to reunite eternally with her beloved. She was a nurturing matriarch whose love together with her husband’s will impact her family for generations to come.
She is survived by her loving daughter: Marta (George Daniel) Boskocevic; her adoring son: Artur (Malgorzata) Kardasz; her two precious granddaughters: Isabella and Amelia Kardasz; her two cherished grandsons: David and Noah Boskocevic; and her dear sister: Danuta (Henryk) Milewska; as well as various other family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents and her husband.
