Sr. Florence Pasowicz Obituary

Sister Florence Pasowicz, SSJ-TOSF
March 20, 1933 - November 18, 2023
Sr. Florence was born in Pulaski, Wisconsin. She attended Assumption of the BVM parish and school where she was taught by our sisters. She entered the congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis in 1951 where she finished her high school education. In
1954 she entered the novitiate and began teaching in 1955. From 1955 to 1978, Sr. Florence taught in various schools in Wisconsin and Michigan while taking classes and earning her BA in Education at St. Norbert College.
From 1978 to 2003 Sr. Florence worked in parish ministry and ecumenical outreach. This
eventually led to her becoming the director of St. John's Keenagers, a live-in home for
independent elderly men and women in Menasha, Wisconsin. In 2003 Sr. Florence required brain surgery after which she had to learn to speak, read, and write again. During the long rehabilitation and restorative therapy Sr. Florence was ever grateful for those sisters and staff who helped her through that period. During her retirement years Sr. Florence lived at St. Joseph Motherhouse where she ministered to the infirmed sisters in any way that she could. In 2020 Sr. Florence moved to Marymount Place in Garfield Hts. Ohio where she lived out her final years. People who knew Sr. Florence appreciated her quiet smile, calm demeanor, and ability to easily connect with people. Sr. Florence loved people and especially the sisters in her congregation, and she treasured the times when she could gather with others in prayer. Sister Florence was born to the late Walter & Mary (Kabara) Pasowicz. Survivors include her sister Dolores (John) McIntyre, sister-in-law Lorraine Pasowicz, brother-in-law Ron Schwabenlender; many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents Walter & Mary Pasowicz; her sisters: Bernice Smith, Regina Bogacz, Irene Kozicki, Lorraine Schwabenlender, and Helen, Adeline, and Verna Pasowicz; her brothers: Edward, Edmund, Raymond and John Pasowicz.
