Obituary for Elaine M. Baranowski

Elaine M. Baranowski
Of Wheeling, formerly of Mundelein

Elaine M. Baranowski was born on February 16, 1927 in Chicago, Illinois to Anders Gustav and Josephine (nee Piskur) Martinson. She died Friday, September 1, 2017 at Glenbrook Hospital in Glenview, Illinois. 

Elaine embraced her faith and her life, encouraging others, volunteering when able, and believing in the Holy Spirit. She was a devoted wife and mother, always practical yet a free spirit at heart. After wholeheartedly raising eight independent children, she earned her bachelor’s degree at age 58, giving tenacity a new meaning. Elaine was sensible, solid and determined, working until age 75, supporting her passion for world travel and live theater, which she accomplished with dear friends until declining health sidelined her. She was a diehard Cubs fan, an avid puzzle solver and could not resist a Fannie May dark chocolate vanilla creme. Elaine raised a small village, leaving a grand legacy through her surviving generations. Peace to you, Elaine, on your eternal journey! 

Elaine is survived by her children, Joseph (Suzanne) Baranowski, Carol (Michael) Huffman, James (Lynne) Baranowski, David C. (Mary) Baranowski, Daniel (Melody) Baranowski, Paul (Linda) Baranowski, Anne (John) Auger, and Nancy (Tim Tarachas) Lech; 20 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, sisters, Jean Martinson and Patricia (John) Monahan. 

She was preceded in death by her sister, Laverne (the late John) Mattingly, her former spouse Robert Joseph Baranowski and her parents.
