Wieslawa “Vee” Jaroszewski, 88, of Oak Park, died peacefully in her sleep with her son by her side on June 1, 2022. Born in Poland, she overcame many hardships during World War II which later in life shaped her into a strong and independent woman. Her many passions included painting, real estate, and her family.

Vee was the daughter of the late Anna and Walter Przybysz. She was preceded in death by her younger brother, Andrew Przybysz, and her late husband, Walter Jaroszewski. She was the mother of Gregory Jaroszewski and grandmother to Matthew Ryan Jaroszewski; and the aunt of Stephen (Laura) Przybysz, Anne Marie Przybysz, Christopher (Yuka) Przybysz, and Andrew Przybysz.

On Saturday, June 25 at 10 a.m., there will be a memorial Mass at St. Giles with visitation from 9 to 10 beforehand.
