On October 13, 2016, Jennie passed gently and peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, as the Little Sisters of the Poor softly sang her through the gates of heaven. There are choirs singing in your head. If you listen, you will hear the music. It is the song of angels. Pay no attention to the sounds of the world. They are just noises, and even when added up all together they have no value, make no sense. Strain to hear the song of angels. Listen to the melody within your soul. - Neale Donald Walsch Beloved wife of the late Joseph J. Dudziak, loving mother of Edward (Loretta) Dudziak, Kathy (Ray) McCraren, David (Laurie) Dudziak, Gerry (Linda) Dudziak and the late James (late Sandra) Dudziak; loving foster mother of Ed (Deb) Knych; loving grandmother of Sharon, Vince, Keith, Matt, Jessica, Bryan, Abigail, and Tom; loving great-grandmother of John, Joey, Wyatt, Gage, Nina, Lainey, Georgia, Haddie, Emily, Logan, Jack, Duke and Savannah; dear daughter of the late John and Katarzyna (nee Tworek) Knych; fond sister of Helen Dudziak.
