Obituary for Mildred H. Stefanski

Mildred H. Stefanski nee Banas, age 99, a ten year resident of Oak Park and formerly of Chicago passed away on April 6, 2020. She was the beloved wife of the late Chester J. Stefanski; loving mother of Lawrence (Sandra), Susan (Joseph) Tennutti, Bonnie (Robert) Mather, Bernard (the late Frances) Stefanski, and Paulette Onesto and Marcia Moreno; cherished grandmother of Darlene, Peter, Lawrence Jr., Joy and Stephanie, Gina and Joey, Heather, Kristen, Lauren, Eric and Kelsey, and Annette and Anthony; great-grandmother of 11; dear sister of the late Mary (the late Bernard) Ligman, Casey, Frank (the late Elizabeth), Walter (the late Josephine), Louis (the late Frances) Banas and Mabel (the late Louis) Kman; fond aunt and great-aunt of many. Mildred was born in Chicago on September 25, 1920 to the late Peter and Caroline Banas. She lived on the near West side of Chicago in St. Anne’s parish and married Chester Stefanski on August 5, 1944. Through all of their joy and struggles they raised 6 children. Mildred worked as a frame assembler and later packing and filling orders for a candy company. After her retirement she spent a lot of time happily caring for her grandchildren and vacationing with her children. She was deeply devoted to her catholic faith and always put family first. Whether it was Easter, Christmas, birthday parties or backyard barbeques, Mildred was there celebrating with her precious family. She was loving, kind and very generous always wanting to lend a helping hand. She was a loyal Cubs fan and was fortunate to witness the 2016 World Series Win by the Chicago Cubs. Mildred is so loved and will be terribly missed. May she rest in peace.

Private interment Resurrection Cemetery. A memorial mass will be held at Ascension Church in Oak Park at a later date.
