Obituary for Pelagia Gworek

Pelagia "Paula" Gworek (nee. Kurczewski), went to join our Heavenly Father in the early morning hours of April 25, 2021. She was 96 years old.

Paula, as she was commonly called, was born on April 30, 1924 in Hamtramck, Michigan to Jacob and Stella Kurczewski. She proudly served in the Women’s Air Corp during World War II. She loved God and drew her comfort and strength from her faith. Having been born and raised Polish, Paula valued her family’s Polish roots and took pride in the courage her family displayed while immigrating to America. A courage she embodied for the remainder of her life.

Paula was a beloved wife, cherished sister, devoted mother, grandmother, aunt, mother-in-law, cousin and friend. She will be loved and missed by many that knew and loved her.
She brought a beautiful light into this world and to those who loved her. A light which will not be extinguished even by death.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, John Gworek, with whom she is now joyously reunited. She is also preceded in death by her parents, Jacob and Stella Kurczewski; her siblings, Ted, Regina, Ray, Lucie, Mary and Irene.

Paula is survived by her children, whom she loved unwaveringly, Nancy (Paul) Davis, Margaret (Terry deceased, Harry) Stenerson, Susan (Ronald) Hocking, and Mary; grandchildren, to whom she brought great joy, Felicia, D.J. (Bridget), Andrew, Stephanie, and Abigail as well as many extended family and dear friends.

Visitation will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 East Liberty St. Milford on Tuesday, April 27th, 2021 from 3:00PM - 7:00PM.

Funeral Mass will be held at St. John’s Catholic Church (Little church) on Wednesday, April 28th, 2021 at 11:00AM with gathering beginning at 10:00AM. The Rev. Fr. Francis George to officiate. Burial in Great Lakes National Cemetery.
