Lorraine Rita Kmak
Lorraine Rita Kmak, wife of Adam, dear mother of Ken, Tom, Linda, and Krissy, beloved mother-in-law of Cathy Blades Kmak and Michael Bailey, grandmother of William Gerhardt, Alex Gonzalez, Jesse Gonzalez, and Adam and Jacob Kmak, daughter of Edmund and Florence Kuznicki, passed on May 2, 2012. She left this world peacefully, at home, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Chicago and moved to Kansas City to work for American Century, which she retired from in 1999. She is also survived by her brother Ed Kuznicki, his sons Edmund, Vincent and Steven, her sister-in-law Sheila Yoder and children Thomas, Julie, Susan, and Raymond, their spouses, and many loved nieces and nephews, including Dr. Victor and Donna Tocwish, their three girls Donnette, Carolyn and Bonnie, the August and Barbara Kmaks, their daughter Nancy, and the Libs, Prodazas, and the McClory families.
No traditional service is planned, but the family would appreciate cards and letters with memories of Auntie Lorrie for us all to share. We will never forget her and will always remember her smile, laugh, and good common sense.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to any organization in her name, but especially to Kansas City Hospice and the American Cancer Society.
