Pauline A. Sypal (Bara) of Glen Ellyn, IL, left this world on April 14, 2021 at the age of 94 having lived a long and wonderful life. She grew up on a farm in upper Michigan before moving to Chicago where she started her own beauty shop in Elmwood Park and found her lifetime partner, Ken, to whom she was married for 63 years.
