Krystyna Kwak

February 16, 1951July 4, 2019

Our Mama and Babcia has begun her next great adventure. Survived by her daughters, Kathy Guffroy (Brian) and Olga Kwak, her sisters Grazyna Kobus (Zbigniew) and Halina Nazaruk (Marek), and her dearly beloved grandkids Ethan and Leah Guffroy (Tyler Caprietar). Born in Lublin, Poland, she studied economics in university and met Czeslaw Kwak at an Andzejki party. Their life together included hitchhikes across Europe, countless bonfires, and an openhearted sense of adventure that inspires us all to try anything once. Thank you, Dr. Juergens, Dr. Russell, and the wonderful staff at Bob Kemp Hospice. We invite you to celebrate her life at the Royal Botanical Garden – Rock Garden on Monday, July 8, 2019 from 5-8 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider supporting the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice.

I was privileged to get to know Krystyna as the mother of one of my very best friends, Olga Kwak. I experienced Krystyna as a warm, open, calm source of strength, heritage, and joy every time we met. I can see her influence in my friend's personality and values. I'm grateful to have had the chance to spend at least a bit of time with Krystyna. My deepest sympathies and warmest condolences to all of those touched by her loss, and especially to you Olga.
