Florence Reszel

Florence Reszel, 84, of Silver Creek passed away peacefully on Monday, January 8, 2018, surrounded by her loving family at Select Specialty Hospital in Erie, PA.

Florence was born on October 30, 1933 in Buffalo, the daughter of the late Casimer and Josephine (Kaniecki) Leonarczyk. On April 24, 1954, she married Richard F. Reszel in Sloan, and he preceded her in death on August 28, 1994 after sharing 40 years of marriage.

Surviving are five daughters, Kathy (Frank) Nowicki of Sloan, Carol (Paul) Lysek of Wayland, Sandra (Greg) Krajewski of Jacksonville, FL, Cynthia (Michael) Evancho of Silver Creek and Barbara (Shawn) Donnelly of Angola; two sons, Richard (Karen) Reszel of Cape Coral, FL and Lawrence Reszel of Angola. Adored by an abundant number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and three brothers, Casimer Leonarczyk of Biloxi, MS, Robert (Christine) Leonarczyk of Cheektowaga and Joseph Leonarczyk of Olcott, NY. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by a daughter, Susan Pomietlasz.

Florence worked for Buffalo China in Buffalo, where she held a variety of jobs, retiring as a decorator with over 20 years of service. She attended Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R.C. Church in Silver Creek.

Florence enjoyed playing cards, especially rummy, reading, and going to the casino to try her luck. She will be remembered for her banana bread and homemade pierogies; everybody loved her baking and cooking. One of her favorite pastimes was sitting at the beach, soaking up the sun with a cocktail in hand. At the end of the day, she also could be found relaxing with her family around a campfire.

Friends may call at the Hole-Parker Funeral Chapel, 160 Central Ave., Silver Creek on Thursday, January 11 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R.C. Church on Friday, January 12 at 10 a.m. Interment will be private.
