VP Trish: Marian Wesolowski

As many of you know, Druhna Marian Wesolowski passed away last November. This weekend, there will be a memorial service at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Elma, New York. The mass is being held on Saturday, January 15 at 9:00 a.m. (EST). The mass will be streamed on YouTube for those who are unable to travel to Buffalo. The link is https://youtu.be/EOSaScVQvw0.

Druhna had served as the National Physical Education Director from 1981 until 2004. Marian had joined Nest 6, Buffalo, at the age of 8 and was very active with the Polish Falcons. Druhna touched the lives of so many and is greatly missed!

May Marian rest in peace!

It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that our Marian Wesolowski passed away the morning of November 22. Druhna had been quite ill for a long time.

Druhna had been the National Physical Education Instructress from 1981 (initially with Druh Edmund Pett) and retired in 2008.

Marian and I met through our work with the Polish Falcons, but we became good friends. I spent lots of time with her at the lake. I shall miss her, but I shall cherish all the memories I have of Marian – both my personal ones as well as Falcon ones.

Tentative plans are for a mass in Florida on January 8 with a mass in Buffalo on January 15.

There will more details in upcoming blogs, as well as in the next issue of the Sokol Polski.

May Druhna Marian rest in peace!
