Frances Boryszewski


Frances Boryszewski was born Sept. 9, 1916, and died Jan. 9, 2018, at 101 years of age. Born in Forest City, Pennsylvania, she was one of eight children born to Wesley and Frances Kalasinski. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by Walter, her husband of 50-plus years, and her seven siblings.

During World War II, she served her country, first as an aircraft riveter, then as an inspector and supervisor. She and Walter often provided living accommodations for extended family and friends in need. Her cooking, canning and baking prowess will be very fondly remembered.  

Frances always enjoyed sprucing up her home on a regular basis, causing Walter to chuckle when coming home from work, and trip over the newly arranged furniture yet again. She also dearly loved organic gardening, playing card games and solving puzzles. 

Frances is survived by her sons, Walter and Richard; grandchildren, Karla, Cindy, Eric, Jeff, David, Alexis and Alexander; and great-grandchildren, Michelle, Tim, Courtney, Christopher, Morgan, Eli, Jason, Tyler, Gabrielle and Jayden.

Frances will be interred with her parents at the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Forest City, Pennsylvania, at a later date. A Mass will be said in her honor at St. John Paul II Catholic Church, 127 Stonemason Way, Ponte Vedra, FL at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018. Please sign the online guestbook at
