Mildred Gray
12/28/1929 - 6/20/2019
Mildred (Keeyes) Gray, 89, of Niles, passed away at her home with her family surrounding her on Thursday, June 20, 2019.

Mildred could frequently be found dancing. She loved music, and would always dance along. She was a woman of faith, actively involved at Mount Calvary Baptist Church, where she served others on the kitchen committee by making fried chicken. She was a people person, and she gave nicknames to everyone she knew. Mildred would buy a new dress seemingly every week, and she loved to look nice. This led to her father calling her “Doll” because she was always “Dolled up.” We appreciate everyone's prayers and support. Mildred was a woman of faith, and we think it is fitting for her to have a proper homegoing service. Please consider donating to help give Mildred the kind of service she deserved.

Chase Daniel Allen
Chase Daniel Allen lost the battle with his failing, earthly body Monday night, July 8, 2019, in the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. In the words his sister, Jacinta Langley, who so eloquently writes, "What he gained was so much more. In the midst of our tears we rejoice knowing Chase is now free of pain and of the unknown illness that changed so much of his life and our lives the last 7 months.

As his family makes the long drive home this morning, our community has the opportunity to minister to them in a powerful way right now. First and foremost, take a moment to pray for them. They will be blessed by your prayers more than you can possibly imagine.

Secondly, this family has gone through seven months of lost wages, hotel stays, traveling and medical bills. Now they will be making plans for his funeral and burial. There is no life insurance - Chase had just graduated from nursing school when he fell ill. Any funds donated through our site or here on Fund the Funeral will go directly to the funeral home electronically and the full 100% will assist his family. Please share this information. Every donation, large or small, will add up quickly. Together, we can ease a huge burden on their shoulders.

Wladyslaw Mazur

Dad quietly passed away, late Friday night June 7th, 2019 right before the clock struck midnight. He departed peacefully and pain free. His last weeks and days were spent reminiscing of memories with his loving family & friends. Wladziu was gleaming with joy as he looked through old pictures, watched Polish comedy shows and listened to good ol' Polish tunes. He especially enjoyed reading letters and listening to messages, from people he loved the most.

He is survived by his greatest accomplishments; his daughters; Justyna Mazur-Gorczyca (33), Judyta Ciesla (31), Natalia Mazur (24) and step daughter Beata Biedron (38); his 2 grandchildren, Tymon Gorczyca (7) and Alan Ciesla (6); his son in-law, Bartosz Gorczyca (33); his 3 older brothers, Jan, Stanislaw, and his best buddy brother, Marian Mazur; and former wives, Agata Mazur and Ewa Miceli.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Boleslaw Mazur and Stefania Paszynska Mazur.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to all doctors, residents, nurses and hospital staff during dad's care; to Oncology team and to the most compassionate Otolaryngology and ENT team of doctors & residents, ever existed. Immense gratitude to Vitas Healthcare hospice caretakers, especially nurse Delaney Dittman and private caretaker, Pani Henia Lisiakiewicz.
The family would like to thank everyone for all the support & kindness during the last months. He will always be remembered as a kind, loving, little stubborn and definitely a man with a big sense of humor.

9/28/1948 - 5/25/2019
My dad was the most caring, giving person anyone could have ever known. He would cook for all our friends, family and even strangers. He never left anyone out in the cold that’s just who he was. For over 20 years my dad thought he was paying a life insurance policy but in reality he was getting taken advantage of so when he realized he didn’t have any insurance he took a policy out and didn’t meet the 2 year requirement for the insurance company to pay for his services. I had to put my pride to the side to even be able to ask for any assistance to help me put my father away properly. I would like to thank anyone that give any donations and even the ones who want to give and don’t have it your prayers are just as good! Our goal is 7,500 Thank you in advance.
