Priscilla Matlak Obituary
Matlak, Priscilla Gordon Passed on August 1, 2019, in her own home. She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Theodore "Ted" Matlak. Stoic until the end, Priscilla faced cancer with the strength and practicality with which she lived her life. She is survived by her children, former Alderman Ted Matlak (32nd) and Alyse Goodwin (Nick); and grandchildren, Arden, Gunner, Emily and Aubrey; as well as many relatives and her lifelong friend and defacto sister, Jean Anderson. Priscilla devoted her life to the noble and loving purpose of family, ensuring that her children received the formal education that eclipsed her. Her life was a master class in caretaking, homemaking, generosity and resilience. If your mother is half the mother that Priscilla Matlak was, you are truly blessed. Visitation for Priscilla is 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at St. Hedwig Catholic Church, 2226 N. Hoyne, Chicago, IL 60647. Funeral Mass follows at 10:30 a.m.
