"Del" Rompa (nee Markuszewski), age 74, of Romeoville, IL, passed away peacefully at Lakewood Nursing Center in Plainfield, IL on September 8, 2019, while under Joliet Hospice care. Del was born in Chicago, IL on February 6, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Heliodor and Eugenia (nee Szyepkowski) Markuszewski.

She loved attending thousands of their football, baseball and basketball games for over forty years and was an avid Joliet Catholic Hilltopper fan where her sons and grandson attended. She always enjoyed an episode of "The Golden Girls", loved her English Bulldogs and enjoyed spending time at their lake home at Lake Wildwood in Varna, IL.
