  4. Hello to all of my Jezierski cousins. We are truly saddened at the news of Aunt Clara’s death. But, my very first thought was that her and mom are finally together after so many years apart. I know how happy mom always was after a phone conversation with her sister. For many many years they would talk about all of us no doubt and would share all that they could with each other. It is amazing when we think about their long, long lives and that they both kept their minds so sharp. Your mom seemed to me to always sound the same. She was the most positive person I’ve known. The only negative thing she ever told me was that she couldn’t go outside to fix everything under the sun like she use to when she was 85 or 90!!!!! She was the most faithful birthday card sender of all!!!! And the extra goodies she would send were very special. In fact, she sent cards to mom for every holiday on the calendar. Mom always had me put them where she could see them every day. Bill and I have a great number of fun memories from our visits to Cleveland and Aunt Clara’s house with the glider on th porch, the clubhouse we built, Tootsie with “TWO MOMMIES”, the parakeets, and lots of great Polish food. I think I also liked to play the piano alot and Dolores and I would play in the attic with our little Ginnie Dolls. I am blessed to have these special memories of your mom. I know that we have lots of pictures of her too and will always feel very close when looking through them. I am sorry that we cannot come for the funeral but our prayers will be with all of you throughout this time. Please give her a kiss for us and keep in touch. Remember that they are together and are happy to be with God.! We love you all. Vicky, Paul, Ryan and Mandy

  5. I have always recalled the times I spent as a young boy at your home. A home as familiar to me now as it was over 50 years ago. Thank you for your love and care.

    Your always grateful Nephew/Cousin

  6. Sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you. I only new Clara through my son Chris and as my Avon customer. I always enjoyed going over there to drop off her Avon order and talking to her. I am sure she will be missed.

  7. My condolences to the whole family. Your Mom figured in many wonderful memories of Cleveland … from the 1950’s to 2007. And at least one trip to Maryland. I remember the 2 sisters (Clara and Flo) together sharing happy memories. Aunt Clara will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor and the love she shared with us all. With deepest Sympathy. Nancy

  8. We were so sorry to hear about Aunt Clara. I have such fond memories of driving up to Cleveland from Dayton to visit our REAL Polish extended family….and all the food and fun and laughter. Weddings, anniversaries, even funerals were all special occasions for all of that. I credit Aunt Clara for teaching Pam (and me) how to pronounce our last name correctly. What a special lady. Always laughing. We will miss her, but I know my dad Simon and Frank and Dorothy and Ted and Mae and Flo and Earl and Eddie….are treating Clara to a wonderful welcome home feast. Save some for us.
    Pam, Eric, Adam, Clayton, Kim, Amanda & Baby Greta

  9. I fondly remember our many car trips from Dayton up to Cleveland to visit our whole extended family….the REAL Polish aunts, uncles, cousins & Dziadzia. Whether it was for a wedding, an anniversary or a funeral, there was always lots of fun, food and laughter. And Aunt Clara was always in the mix. I can imagine the feast that Grandpa & Rose, Eddie, Lenny, Steven, Ted & Mae, Frank & Dorothy, Flo & Earl, and Simon (our dad) had ready for her arrival. Save some for us!
    Eric, Pam, Adam, Clayton, Kim, Amanda & Baby Greta

  10. The house that always made everyone feel welcome. That was Aunt Clara’s home. As I look at the picture of her here there is still that twinkle in her eye and the smile that was always there to great you. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Your Mother and Grandmother brought quiet wisdom, strength and wonderful long-lasting memories to many, many peoples lives. Thank you for sharing her with us.

  11. Mom and I were so sad to hear of (Aunt) Clara’s passing. Mom was remembering how Clara and Flo both came down to Decatur for her and Dad’s wedding…and I will always remember going to Aunt Clara’s and Uncle Eddies house, cause it was where I got to see Dzia-Dzia AND the parakeets and cats. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God’s Blessings on you.

    Aunt Norma and Cousin Janet
