Karolina Schisnewski
June 12, 1928 - March 8, 2018
Karolina Schisnewski, age 89, passed away peacefully on March 8, 2018 to go on her next journey. Born in Borschitz, Czechoslovakia to France and Pauline Kupilak, on June 12, 1928. She bravely came to the United States, specifically Merced, California in 1950 to join her husband, Leon, whom she was married to for 50 years before his passing in 1998.
She spent most of her life as a housekeeper for several prominent Merced families and was a great homemaker. She enjoyed cooking for her family and was very proud to have become a U.S. citizen in 1977.
Karolina's specialty was sewing and knitting. For many years, she knitted the beanies for the newborn infants at the hospital, which she donated. She was an avid baseball fan, especially rooting on the San Francisco Giants.
Karolina was preceded in death by her parents, husband Leon, Son Robert Schisnewski, grandson Mark Schisnewski, and other siblings. She is survived by her son George Schisnewski and wife Tawny, grandson Gary Schisnewski, great grandchildren Cody Schisnewski, Cassidy Trindade and Kayla Hyatt; sisters Rosa Mull and Antonia Schisnewski (George), and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the caring staff at Hy-Lond Healthcare Center in Merced and Bristol Hospice of Merced for caring for Karolina like family.
Graveside Services will be held at Calvary Cemetery, 260 W. Childs Avenue, Merced, CA on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 2:00 PM.
