In memory of
Dolores M. Frankovich
Dolores M. Frankovich Dolores M. Frankovich (nee Zelko), age 91, entered into eternal life on Friday, October 14, 2016. Dolores is survived by her loving children, Mark (Sandie) Frankovich, Jane (Lawrence) Kuzma, and Mary Ellen (Douglas) Harmon; cherished grandchildren, Shannon, Shane, Michael, Lisa, Katherine, Keenan, Reanna, Dewayne, Lexi, Alex, Alana, and Austin; 10 cherished great-grandchildren; dear sister, Lillian (the late Louis) Korilko; dear sister-in-law, Barbara (the late John) Zelko; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Preceded in death by her husband, Michael; parents, Frank and Josephine (nee Opara); siblings, Josephine (Martin) Spanich, Ray, Sylvia, John, and Jim Zelko. Dolores travelled to many parts of the country and the world seeing some of the most beautiful sights and cultures the Earth has to offer. Dolores was a strong, independent, loving, and tenacious person. She kept her beautiful smile and her humor until the very end, only her body faltered. Over the past week, she was having health complications, but to her family she was still as full of life as she ever was. She spoke so vibrantly and remained the sharpest person in the room. Things that Dolores will greatly miss include, tending to her garden and her beautiful flowers, completing crossword puzzles, and traveling the world. One thing that everyone else will miss are her delicious chocolate chip cookies, the secret recipe of which she may or may not have taken with her. Dolores will be greatly missed by her loving children, cherished grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers donations in Dolores' name to Autism Science Foundation at would be greatly appreciated. The family extends special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Loyola University Medical Center and Presence St. Joseph Medical Center for the excellent care provided.
