Bay City, Michigan
Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and “Busia” went home to be with her Lord and husband Adrian on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at Bay Shores Nursing Facility, age 98. Florence was born August 3, 1916 in Bay City to the late John and Kazmiera (Staszynski) Kazmierski. She married Adrian J. Banaszak on June 26, 1937 in St. Hyacinth Church and he predeceased her on November 28, 1995. She was a member of Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish-St. Hyacinth Church, Rosary/Altar Society, Senior Citizens, League of Catholic Men & Women, Felician Sisters Auxiliary and Local Union #362. Florence loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also enjoyed relaxing on her porch, gardening, shopping, and casinos. After 92 years of life, Florence made a courageous decision to take her first air flight.
Surviving are three children: Adrian (Ann) Banaszak, Roy Banaszak and Barbara Dishaw, nine grandchildren, several great grandchildren and a sister in-law, Mamie Netkowski. Florence was predeceased by eleven brothers and sisters.
