Hattie Jarmolowicz Obituary
Hattie Jarmolowicz

Hattie Jarmolowicz, 99, Sobieski, died peacefully Sunday morning, August 17, 2014, at Woodhaven Manor in Pulaski. The daughter of Joseph and Pearl (Olszewski) Skinkis was born November 26, 1914 in Brown County. She married Roman Jarmolowicz in 1936 and he preceded her in death in 2003.

Probably one of the last pioneer women, Hattie had a zest for life and hoped to see her 100th birthday in November. She did Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors sewing from left-over material and hand-me-downs. She made her own patterns from newspaper pages.

Hattie kept a large garden, preserving as much as she could for her family. It was amazing how many different kinds of jams and jellies and cucumbers she could preserve.

She was also known for her doughnut making. Hattie shared with everyone. She spent much time crocheting doilies, slippers, afghans, caps, and scarves, and never followed book instructions. She did crocheting and her coloring books up until a week ago. Hattie loved company and always sent everyone home with something.

Survivors include her eight children: Rose Rovinski (husband Don Gierczak), Green Bay, Barbara (Tony) Zimanek, Iowa, Germaine (George) Ballard, Crivitz, Dottie (Mike) Sternard, Luxemburg, Pat (Ray) Wazny, Sobieski, Tom (JoAnn) Jarmolowicz, Seymour, LaVerne (Dan) Labs, Green Bay, and Sandy (Jeff) Collins, Montello; 24 grandchildren; 33 great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; one brother: Stanley (Rose Marie) Skinkis, Seymour; two sisters: Helen Kobelewski, Milwaukee, Genevieve Spaude, Menominee, Michigan; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, two sons; Joseph and Michael; one son-in-law: Ted Rovinski; one brother and sister-in-law: John (Eleanor) Skinkis; two sisters and brothers-in-law: Isabelle (Jospeh) Hylok, and Florence (John) Holewinski; two brothers-in-law: Frank Kobelewski, and Fred Spaude.

Friends may call at Assumption B.V.M. Church, 124 E. Pulaski St., Pulaski, from 9:30-11:00 a.m. Thursday. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Thursday at the church, Fr. Brendan Wroblewski, O.F.M presiding, with burial in the parish cemetery.
