Adeline D. Kweiser

Adeline D. Kweiser, (nee James), age 90, of Joliet, passed away peacefully, Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Lakewood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Plainfield, with her family by her side.

Born December 30, 1926 in Joliet, and a lifelong resident, she was the daughter of the late Roy James and Theresa (Hellwig) James Rzeszutko.   She was united in marriage on January 31, 1948 to her beloved husband, Robert F.

Adeline retired from St. Joseph Hospital, and was one of the “TV Ladies” working for Sylvania at St. Joe’s.  Later, she was promoted to the Admitting Department at the hospital and enjoyed working in that department until she retired.

Adeline enjoyed crafts, her flower and vegetable gardens, and making cakes, pies, potica, breads and cookies, not only for family, but friends and co-workers as well.

She is survived by nine children, Carole (Bob) Johnson of Weeki Wachee, FL, Bob Kweiser of Ventura, CA, Janet Kweiser of Aurora, IL, Ginger (Steve) Snyder of Omaha, NE, Peggy (Phillip) Robidoux of Mountain View, CA, Rick Kweiser of Joliet, IL, Nancy (the late James) Durkin of Thornton, IN, William Kweiser of Piper City, IL, and Kimberly (the late Bob) Goodwin of New Lenox, IL.  Also surviving are numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, with two more great-grandchildren on the way; her sister, Eileen (LeRoy) Tezak of Wauwatosa, WI; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
