Obituary for Paula Janik

Proud grandmother of Alison, Kaitlyn, Sebastian, and Vera.
Loving sister of Jeannette (Rich) Conklin, Frank Ott, Sharon (Gary) Freislinger, Nancy (Herman) Krieher, and Susan (Ed) Albrecht.

We will be hosting a celebration of Paula’s life from 11:00 to 2:30 on Saturday, November 6th at The Morton Arboretum’s Thornhill Education Center. We welcome everyone to join us in celebrating the richness of our mom’s life, sharing those stories that could only involve Paula, and generally remembering why we all loved her so much. While catering will be provided during the event, there will not be a seated lunch to allow anyone who would like to join us to do so at any point. No one should feel compelled to stay for the duration - it is our intention to invite everyone to stay for as little or as much time as they’d like. To that end, we invite you to share this invitation with your families or anyone else you think would like to join us.

For those of you who have not visited The Morton Arboretum before, directions can be found here: When you arrive at the gatehouse, you’ll simply let them know you’re there for an event at the Thornhill Education Center. The Venue is on the West side of the Arboretum so, after checking in at the gatehouse, you will take a right at the stop sign (to pass under Route 53) and follow the drive approximately 1 mile to the Thornhill parking area P21 (located on your right). If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

Please leave a memory for the family on Paula’s Tribute Wall; your stories will bring comfort to her family. 708-857-7878
