I am the daughter of Irene and Stanley Glowacki. I saw the Death Notice for Chris Krisko. My mother and father were good friends with George and Chris. Your mom and dad played an important part in the lives of my parents. I remember them so vividly. They were at parties, at my parents' cottage and took many trips to Canada together. John Popyk and George Krisko spent a great deal of time fishing, building and traveling with my dad. I remember them talking about Marlyn and Greg. I am sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Krisko. I will try to find pictures of all of them together. We would like to attend the funeral, but due to COVID we will not be able to do so. We will keep you in our prayers.

Mrs. Krisko was a lovely lady and sweet neighbor who welcomed us so kindly when we moved in, back in 2002. She would always pull over in her darling little Mercedes and chat if we were outside in the yard. She told us many times how nice our house looked and admired all the work we were doing on it. We have missed our chats in recent years but will remember her fondly. May she rest in peace.
