AGE: 87 • Wilmington
Kathleen Rebecca Brzoska, age 87, of Wilmington DE, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, April 24, 2014.
Born in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Kathryn Shaw and step daughter of Horace Steer. Kathleen grew up in South Carolina and attended Presbyterian College. It was there where she found her calling to become a nurse and attended Wilmington General School of Nursing. She then joined the Army Cadet Corp and graduated as a RN in 1948. From then on, Kathleen practiced nursing for 42 years. She was a very caring and compassionate woman whose greatest accomplishment was raising her five children. Kathleen enjoyed entertaining her family and friends, playing pinochle, visiting casinos, and fishing with her husband. She also enjoyed cooking and dancing and it was often said that when she and her husband danced, it was as if they were floating across the dance floor. She was known for her humorously competitive personality. Kathleen was an active member of St. Anthony's, Claymore, and Sellers Senior Centers, participating in all activities.
Kathleen will be dearly missed by her husband, Frank A. Brzoska; sons, Francis A. (Kathy) and Robert D. (Mary Ann); daughters: Kathleen B. DeFlaviis (Nino), Diane M.
