Louise A. Brzezicki went to be with the Lord on February 8th, 2018 at the age of 89. Louise was born in Chicago in 1928 to Roy and Alydia Walker, and she was the step-daughter of Steve Trivich who raised her and loved her as his own child. Louise was big sister to the late June Phillips who passed away in 1996. Louise was married at the age of 18 on August 13, 1947 to Robert J. Spelz. They were married for over 20 years until Robert’s death on Valentine’s Day, 1968. Louise and Robert’s six children are: John, Joseph (Ada), Rita, Mary (Frank), Theresa, and Tommy (Beata). Over the vast span of 40 years, Louise has become the proud grandmother to fourteen children: Jessica (Tom) born 1977, Ryan, Timothy (Jaime), Zachary (Kile), Amy (Mat), Sara (Alex), Elizabeth (Sean), Judy (Carl), Rachel, Jack, Mike, Becky, Robi, and lastly, Yuli was born this past June, 2017. Louise is also great-grandmother to fifteen children: Dominic, Collette, Eva, Garrett, Will, Anslem, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Reese, Riley, Jackalynn, Skylar, Nolan, Libbie, and Ellie. Louise and Robert had been greatly blessed—Thirty-five children in total and still counting! Louise married the late Joseph R. Brzezicki on December 5, 1972. Louise and Joe enjoyed 28 years of loving marriage. During that time, Louise studied as an adult and earned her RN degree when she was 50-years-old. She tried different aspects of nursing and liked teaching the best. Later, in her retirement Louise and Joe liked to take road trips, especially to the Great Smokey Mountains. Inspired by the Lord, Louise and Joe drove to each state in the USA (except for Alaska & Hawaii) to pray for our great nation on the steps of each Capitol building! It was important to Louise that she exercised her gift of prayer, seeking the Lord’s will for not only her family, but friends and enemies alike, and people all over the world, including our nation’s leaders. She was absolutely honored to be used by the Lord to bring others to hear the Good Word about the Lord’s Plan of Salvation. Louise loved to read the Bible and did so every day. She participated in several Christian Mission Trips, including one to La Paz, Mexico. She was a member of the Glen Ellyn Bible Church for many years and served the congregation there in several helpful roles. Louise was a woman of deep faith and love for the Father, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, her family, and all people around the world. She was loved so much and will be greatly missed!
