Obituary

Audrey J Gizewski, Osceola, IN

Audrey J. Gizewski, 94, passed away on Saturday, November 6, 2021.  Audrey was born on December 20,1926 in South

Bend, IN to the late Clarence and Hazel Rhodes.  On March 31, 1945 she married her husband of 76 years, Henry, who survives along with their daughter, Linda (Larry) Rodino, daughter-in-law, Tammy Gizewski, grandson, Ryan (fiancé Janet Vermillion) Gizewski, granddaughter, Elaine (Ryan) Garton, sister, Mary Ann Bortone, sister-in-law, Jean Rhodes and several nieces and nephews.

Proceeding her in death in addition to her parents was her son, Terry L. Gizewski, brother and sister-in-laws, Walter and Sophie Rhodes, Irv and Lucy Rhodes, brother, Charles Rhodes, sister Evelyn York and brother-in-law Joseph Bortone.

Audrey worked at the South Bend Kmart as a checkout supervisor until she retired in 1983. Then along with other family members she was a co-owner of Celebrations Unlimited banquet hall in Mishawaka, IN.

Audrey and her husband enjoyed traveling with family and friends throughout the United States making several trips to Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, Hawaii and going on nine cruises to foreign ports.  She also loved going to the local casinos (and almost always came home a winner).  Audrey loved watching the Cubs (and knew all of the players’ names and numbers), watching golf (cheering for Tiger), and rooting on the Irish.

For 39 years Audrey looked forward to Sunday evenings because that meant dinner with the family.  Audrey’s strong love of family will continue through her children and grandchildren.

The family is very thankful to her caregivers, Nora and Lora, and the staff from Center for Hospice Care, Mishawaka for allowing her to remain in her home.
