Helen Alfreda Ciesla - founding member of the Polish American Club passed away February 3, 2019


Helen Ciesla, a long time member of the Polish Club has died at age 98, February 3, 2019.
Helen and her husband Leo (deceased 2007), enjoyed sharing her Polish heritage and were very active members from the beginning of the Club.  They were always the first to volunteer, no matter what needed to be done.  Both enjoyed cooking at Club fundraisers and other events.  They were first generation Polish from the Chicago area. (from Sandra)

The Cieslas were always there, from the first International Festival in 1986 and even earlier … Friendship Force 1984 (from Mark)

In loving memory of Helen our Club made a donation to the Transitions LifeCare organization.
