Former Chesterton resident, Adelle Wujcik, passed away December 17, 2012, in Newberg Oregon, after a short illness. Adelle was born April 1922 in Chicago to Bronislas and Angeline Pawlowski.

In September 1941, Adelle married Jerome Wujcik, and their only child, Robert, was born in 1943.

Adelle is survived by her son Robert and his wife Mary, of Cloverdale, Oregon; her grandson, Charles, and his wife Lauren, and three great-grandchildren: Alexandria, Jackson and Collin, all of Newberg, Oregon.

Adelle grew up in Chicago, Ill., and graduated from Bowen High School. She worked in Chicago for many years at various office jobs.

In 1952, the family moved to Chesterton where they resided on Calumet Road.

Jerome passed away in 1993, but Adelle continued working in Chesterton and living in the family home until 2002, when she moved to Oregon to be close to family. She resided in Tillamook, Oregon and then Newberg, Oregon until she passed away at age 90.

While she lived in assisted living in Newberg, she enjoyed knitting baby afghans and caps for the newborns at the Newberg Hospital.

At her request, no services were held.
