In Loving Memory

Kruczyk, Helen S.

November 21, 1925 - June 21, 2023

Baptized in the Hope of Christ’s Resurrection on Wednesday, June 21, 2023

She was born in St Louis to the late John W and Alice (Bialczak) Klos. She was married to the late Edward Kruczyk for 49 years and had one son, David (Susan) Kruczyk. She was the last surviving member of her siblings Stella (Sam) Grant, Mary (Arthur) Theisman, Frank (Marie) Klos, Edward (Mary) Klos, Chester Klos, Agnes Klos, and Walter (Toni) Klos. She was a beloved grandmother of Eric (Sarah) Kruczyk, Andrew (Kristin) Kruczyk, Stephen Kruczyk, and the late Lauren Kruczyk, children of David’s former marriage to Kathleen Buritsch, and a step-grandmother to Amy (Chris) Blunt, Steven (Kathy) Aslin, and Jeffrey Aslin. She was a great-grandmother to Jadrien Kruczyk, Madelyn Kruczyk, Claire Kruczyk, Brendan Kruczyk, and Thomas Kruczyk and a step-great-grandmother to Victoria LaRosa, Andrew LaRosa, and Luke Aslin.

Helen was a strong willed woman who was deeply dedicated to her Polish Heritage. She was always there to help, especially with her sister Agnes Klos and her grandchildren. Helen will be missed by everyone that she touched. May she rest in peace (Niech spoczywa a pokoju).

  1. You both can relax and stop worrying now she is at rest and out of pain. She will be watching over you both. May she RIP. She looked like a very warm personality to know.
    My deepest condolences for you and your family loss.

  2. Worked with your Mom at KSD and KS94/KUSA. Radio. She was my buddy. We’d talked everyday about things. Very sweet, kind and caring woman. She would also keep me out of trouble with the boss. Praying for Helen and family.

  3. Sorry for your loss bur relieved that Helen is now at peace with God. Now you can take care of yourself Dave.

  4. May God take you in his arms. My sweet Aunt Helen will be missed. She was the last of my Aunts and Uncles from a great generation. God bless you David/Susan. You and your kids were her pride and joy. I will miss having Manhattans at Christmas. A great tradition that we’ll continue in honor of all our Kruczyk Aunts and Uncles

  5. Our sincere sympathies on the loss of your loved one. She sounds like a wonderful lady.
    May your memories be happy ones to sustain you.
