September 19, 1919 – January 20, 2022
Else Kwiotek, age 102, of Warren, Michigan passed away on Thursday, January 20, 2022. Else was born September 19, 1919. Beloved wife of the late Edward for 63 years. Dear mother of Henry (Janis) and Erwin (Carol). Loving grandmother of Yvonne, Lara, Callie and Ian. Proud great grandmother of Chase, Kyler, Zach, Elex and Harper. Else, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother lived a full life. In a way, three full lives. First, as a child and young woman growing up in Germany between two world wars. Second, through WWII, surviving bombings and the death of her mother. Despite the chaos of war, Else met the love of her life, Edward, who was also torn from his family. Perhaps it was the immense adversity faced by Else and Edward during this time that forged a life-long bond filled with trust, love, and kindness. Together Else and Edward moved on to a third life, immigrating to America with nothing but a few suitcases, fifteen dollars, hoping to build a new life in a new world. This hope, coupled with determination and hard work, rewarded Else and Edward with two sons, Henry, and Erwin, followed by four grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. A remarkable woman of 102 years, Else embodied countless values, teaching us to be kind, generous, courageous, and resilient. Else’s legacy lives on through the love and values she bestowed upon her family and friends. We love you, Mom. May you enjoy infinite happiness with Dad in Heaven.
