Obituary for Elaine Gavac

Gavac, Elaine (nee Boska) Age 88, passed from this life to the next Wednesday June 5, 2019 in St. Joseph, Michigan.

Her sons William and Tom were at her side while daughters Jean and Nancy lifted her in prayer.

Elaine was the only child of parents John and Julia Boska, born October 26, 1930 in Chicago, IL. The family resided in the Slovak Pilsen neighborhood where Elaine attended St. Precopius High School and at a community dance, met the love of her life, William Joseph Gavac.

William and Elaine married in Chicago March 31, 1951 and eventually moved to suburban Brookfield where Elaine’s sharp eye spotted a prime parcel across from the forest preserve.

Elaine and William made their home on Forest Ave., in Brookfield raising their 4 children amid the refreshing atmosphere of forests, Salt Creek, and a local sledding hill.

“All I wanted was to be a mother”, Elaine reflected. Elaine’s nurturing and sacrificial love extended beyond her children and grandchildren to so many others. She served in volunteer capacity including Girl & Boy Scouts, Brookfield Zoo Gift Shop and several Lutheran Churches.
Elaine is preceded in death by husband William (died Sept. 2010) now joined in a Heavenly reunion she so looked forward to after 59 years of marriage.

Survivors include sons William and Tom, daughters Jean (Roger) Rosen and Nancy (Jim Fandrey) Mosna and grandchildren Deanna (Joe) Drymiller, Jillena (Joel Synal) Mosna, Christopher (Angella) Rosen and Peter (Hanna) Rosen.
