Our dear mother, Theresa (Piecynski) Philmon, sadly passed away on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the age of 79 surrounded by her 3 children and family after her battle with cancer.

She is survived by her sister Jackie (Louie) Fumanti, her children Linda Zulke (Dave Belknap), Daniel Philmon (Geri Vaeth) and Carol Gillette (Dave Wagner), nieces and nephews, many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Theresa was the daughter of John and Jenny Piecynski who was born in Brussels, Belgium and brought her to America when she was young. She met her former husband (also deceased), John D. Philmon, who was an over the road truck driver and had 3 children.
