Helen Marie Chowaniec

Helen Marie Chowaniec

Helen Marie Chowaniec (nee Gasior), age 92, born on May 6, 1926, and at rest on March 9, 2019. Helen was the devoted daughter of the late Sophie and the late Frank Gasior, the most beloved and giving mother to Cara Chowaniec, Linda Crouchelli, and Dean Chowaniec, and  Grammie Helen to her dearest granddaughters, Nina Sofia and Caroline Helene Crouchelli.

Helen was the eldest of four siblings: the late Walter “Red” (late Mary) Gasior, the late Alice (late Joseph) Walus, and the late Donald (Janice) Gasior. She was a godmother, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, niece, and friend to many.

A lifelong resident of the southwest side of Chicago, Helen spent 90 years in the same home. She was a loving big sister to her three younger siblings with whom she shared cherished family memories and traditions. Upon graduation from Kelly High School, Helen attended secretarial college and worked as a bookkeeper. Once married, she became a stay at home mom – a job that she poured her heart into each and every day raising her three children. She was a lifelong PTA mom who served in a variety of leadership roles. As her children moved into young adulthood, Helen went back to work as a Polish-language translator and customer service representative at a savings and loan. She enjoyed her job because she loved helping people.  

After retiring from her job at the bank, Helen, a devoted daughter, cared for her mom. Her loving ways continued as she transitioned to the role of Grammie – watching her two favorite “girls,” Nina and Caroline. She spent hours with them – playing in the backyard, reading books, singing, baking, and preparing for the holidays.

She enjoyed: listening to a variety of music from Bing Crosby to Bocelli, watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, visiting all museums, playing solitaire on her tablet, attending White Sox and Blackhawks games, baking spritz cookies and toffee bars for school fundraisers, talking on the phone with her family, eating chocolate, playing bingo, watching the Mercy Home Sunday Mass, attending her granddaughters’ performances, and most of all celebrating the holidays with her family.

Helen will be remembered for her kindness, compassion, sense of humor, and giving nature. She believed in honesty, fairness, and cooperation. She will be missed by everyone who knew her and loved her for the happiness she brought to those around her.
