Paxton – Connie (Gonda), Kostrzewski, 89, of Paxton, IL, previously from Dunedin, FL, passed away on Friday, April 22, 2016 at the Illinois Knights Templar Home.

Born January 5, 1927 in Deventer, Netherlands, she was the daughter of the late Hendrick and Geertje DeNooy and the wife of the late Ryszarde Kostrzewski.

She is survived by her children, Brigitte (Richard) Stevens of Champaign, IL, Richard (Bridget) Kostrzewski of Baton Rouge, LA and Walter Kostrzewski of Dunedin, FL; four grandchildren Kimberly (Scott) Wollney of Glenview, IL, Janell (John) Goense of Miami Beach, FL, Christopher (Diane) Stevens of St. Joseph, IL and Alyse (Jeff) Bergmann of Naperville, IL and 7 great-grandchildren, Harrison, Lauren, Alexandra, Grant, Elle, Addi and Lucas.

Connie spent her career as a counselor and dedicated her life to helping troubled children at the Star Commonwealth. She enjoyed traveling, water aerobics, drinking wine and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was loved beyond words and gave love to all whom she encountered.

A private family service will be held Morgan Memorial Home. A celebration of Connie’s, or as most knew her “Oma’s”, life is planned at 2724 Lakeview, Champaign, IL 61822 on Sunday, April 24 from 4 to 6 p.m. Friends of the family are invited to join in this celebration.

She will be sorely missed and always loved.
