Lorraine Kokoszka

Lorraine D. Kokoszka (nee Wisniewski), 94, of LaGrange Park, died Aug. 10, 2021. Ms. Kokoszka was retired from a job as an executive secretary for a utility company.

Lorraine enjoyed her coffee like her neighborhood gossip, scalding hot. She had a dark sense of humor with a giant heart. Most of all, she was always generous and deeply loved by her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.

She was the wife of the late Bruno Kokoszka; the sister of the late Edward Wisniewski and Emilie (the late Casimer) Lesniak; the aunt of Diane Borek, Patricia (John) Trakselis, Patty Kokoszka, Carol Trotter, Christine (Charlie) Dahlenberg; and the great aunt of Karen (Nicholas) Hoffman, Katharine (Robert) Avery and Christina (Timothy) Albores.

Visitation and celebration of life have been held. A private funeral Mass will be held at a future date at St. Louise de Marillac Church, LaGrange Park. Interment was at Resurrection Cemetery, Justice.

Memorials are appreciated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, Tennessee, 38105.

Sympathy cards can be mailed to Hitzeman Funeral Home, 9445 31st St., Brookfield, 60513, c/o the Lorraine Kokoszka family.
