Passing of a Friend - Felicia Rzeznik

Friends,

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a dear friend.  Felicia Rzeznik died on November 20, 2016 after bravely fighting an aggressive form of cancer for most of this year.  Felicia was a dedicated lifelong member of St. Mary’s Parish, serving as an Extraordinary Minister, Lector, and member of the Polish choir.  Following the mergers that affected our local Polish parishes, Felicia helped provide the early vision and leadership in organizing meetings, as well as our first Christmas, and Easter socials, serving as the catalyst for what has become St. Mary Polish American Society, as a way to celebrate and promote Polish heritage first in Conshohocken (which we later expanded to include all of Montgomery County. 

Despite being diagnosed with cancer before Easter, Felicia made sure to devote as much time and energy as she could to our Easter social, planning the menu, coordinating ticket sales, and providing an educational brochure on the meaning of all the traditional Polish Easter foods.  While she fought bravely for much of the year, she passed away early Sunday morning, leaving behind her loving husband Jozef, and their two sons Tom and Stas.  Felicia will be remembered for her caring, hardworking spirit, and her love of her Catholic faith and Polish heritage.  Interment was at Our Lady of Czestochowa, 654 Ferry Road, Doylestown
