Kathleen “Kathy” Dolniak


Kathleen, age 81, of Sun City West, Arizona, formerly of South Chicago and Indiana, passed away August 5, 2020.
She was preceded in death by her parents: John and Helen Dolniak and brothers-in-law: Frank Swetlik and Gerald Kubiak.
She is survived by sisters: Romaine Swetlik and Barbara Kubiak; niece, Linda Kline; nephews: James (Martie) Kubiak, John (Carmen) Kubiak and Thomas (Robin) Kubiak and special friend, Sylvia, who lovingly cared for Kathy in her final months.
Kathleen was born and raised in Chicago and worked at Peoples Gas Co. in Chicago Loop for 37 years. After retiring, she moved to Sun City West, which she loved. When family questioned her about moving back home to be near family, she would say “I am home, all my friends are here.”
Kathleen was an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, Blackhawks, Green Bay Packers, and her home teams the Cardinals, Coyotes, and Diamondbacks. She enjoyed her time spent with the Red Hat Ladies, basket making club, paper cutting and card making club, bowling, and attending outdoor concerts. She loved to travel and visit new sites, even if it was just a one-day trip.
A memorial Mass will be offered for Kathy at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, which Kathy attended.
Kathleen’s final resting place will be back in Indiana at St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery in Schererville, IN.
