ROSA N. GREGORCZYK (NEE CARDENAS) CROWN POINT, IN Rosa N. Gregorczyk (nee Cardenas), age 58 of Crown Point, IN, formerly of Hammond, IN, passed away on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at VNA Hospice in Valparaiso, IN. Rosa is survived by her two daughters: Catherine (Thomas) Biller and Regina (Christopher) Martinez; granddaughter-to-be, Olivia Hope Martinez; mother, Maria Cardenas; sister, Maria (Daniel) McGrory; husband, Richard Gregorczyk; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Carlos Cardenas Sr.; and her brother, Carlos Cardenas Jr. Rosa was Valedictorian of East Chicago Roosevelt High School Class of 1972 and graduated from Purdue University Calumet with a degree in Nursing. She was a loving nurse, working with the Community Healthcare System and Care Pharmaceuticals. She was a poet and teacher and loved to express herself through her cross-stitching. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, and an amazing friend, daughter, sister, and aunt.
