Obituary Condolences

Elaine C. Pokorski, 95, formerly of Carlsbad, CA, passed away on June 26. She was born Elaine Karolczak, daughter of John and Mary Karolczak of Chicago, Illinois, where she was raised. She met and married Eugene R. Pokorski, and settled in Downers Grove, Illinois to raise their family. Upon his retirement, they relocated to Carlsbad, California, where they adopted their new state with enthusiasm. She spent her final few years in Yorba Linda, enjoying almost the entire audiobook collection of the local library, especially westerns and mysteries. As the last surviving member of her family's generation, she is preceded in death by her parents, husband, brothers, and sisters. She is survived by her three children Suzanne Evans (Clyde, dec.), John (Elizabeth), and Lisa Wismer (Michael), seven grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren, all of whom will miss her unconditional support and encouragement to be our best selves. Mass and interment is planned for September 19 at Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, California. The family suggests donations to the Yorba Linda Public Library audiobook program. No one loves you like your Mom.
