Obituary for Susan D. Brostrom

BROSTROM, Susan Dorothy (nee Hrnciar), age 100, of Maywood. Passed away peacefully at Loyola University Hospital on January 6, 2019. She is survived by her son Dennis (Lynda) Brostrom, her son-in-law Ray Fraser, grandchildren Karen Brostrom, Janet (Albert) Kraai, Amy (Nicholas) Christie, Jeff (Trish) Brostrom, and Kurt Fraser, great-grandchildren Noah, Hannah, Jaxson, Owen, Emily, Wyatt, Charlotte, and Lily, and one sister Helen (the late Arnold) Melchiori. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 67 years, Kenneth Brostrom, her daughter Darlene Fraser, her parents John and Kristina (nee Cadra) Hrnciar, and 10 siblings. Susan was born in Shamrock Texas in 1918, where she assisted her family with their cattle farm. After her mother died when she was only 12, she took on an even greater share of the household duties and child-rearing. After graduating high school, she moved to Chicago where she met her husband, Kenneth. While he was deployed in World War II, Susan did her part by sewing army uniforms in Mississippi. After the war, they moved to Maywood to raise a family. Susan was active in her church, Christ Lutheran of Melrose Park, as well as the Independent Order of Svithiod. Susan lived in Maywood for 67 years, only recently moving when her health began to decline. Susan was always dependable, endlessly charitable, extremely hardworking, and fearless in the face of much loss throughout her life. She had a heart of gold and was loved and admired by all who knew her. Her steadfast love will live on eternally. Visitation will be Friday 3:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Bormann Funeral Home, 1600 Chicago Ave., Melrose Park and again Saturday, starting at 10:00 A.M until time of funeral service, at 11:00 A.M.at the funeral home.
