Barbara Kaminski

Barbara B. Kaminski, 101, of Mt. Vernon and formerly of rural Ashley, passed away Sunday, July 28, 2013, at 10:15 p.m. at Good Samaritan Regional Health Center in Mt. Vernon.

Barbara was born Saturday, Dec. 2, 1911, in St. Louis, the daughter of Frank and Mary (Belter) Kasban. The family greatly enjoyed their life in St. Louis, where her father was a supervisor for Union Electric. Health concerns caused the family to return to Radom in southern Illinois where Barbara was confirmed in the Catholic faith in St. Michael Church in Radom.

Barbara married Joseph J. Kaminski on Feb. 27, 1933, at St. Michael Church in Radom. Together they successfully operated a grain and cattle farm in rural Ashley for more than 30 years until her husband died on Sept. 24, 1963.

Mass of Christian burial will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at St. Michael Catholic Church in Radom with Father Robert Zwilling officiating. Interment will follow at St. Michael Cemetery in Radom.

Visitation will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday with a Holy Rosary held at 7:30 p.m., and 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday until Mass time at St. Michael Catholic Church in Radom.

Barbara is survived by her half-brother, Frank Kasban and wife Mary Ann of Radom; her half-sister, Eleanor Hudson of Henderson, Nev.; and stepbrother, George Novak and wife Noma of St. Louis. Barbara is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, to whom she was deeply devoted and was very proud of their accomplishments.

Barbara’s husband; infant daughter, Barbara Joan; parents; sisters, Lucille Kasban, Gertrude Broviak and Bernice Costley; brother, Eugene Kasban; stepbrothers, Eddie Novak and Stanley Novak; dear nieces, Janet (Costley) Davis and Barbara (Costley) Williams; and great-nephews, James Owen Williams and Joshua Davis all preceded her in death.

She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Mt. Vernon, took her faith very seriously and tried to spiritually influence those around her. We trust that as you mourn Barbara’s passing with us that you share in the promise of Jesus Christ who is the way, the truth and the life and our only hope of eternal life.

For those who wish, memorials may be given to the St. Michael Cemetery in Radom and will be accepted at the funeral home or mailed to Hughey Funeral Home, P.O. Box 721, Mt. Vernon, IL 62864.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Hughey Funeral Home where you may call 242-3348 or visit www.hugheyfuneralhome1969.com for further information and to send condolences.
