Katherine Vlcek, born Katherine Sanowski, daughter of William and Ada Sanowski was born on August 8, 1940 in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, the youngest of seven children. She graduated from Essex Business College in Newark and was an executive medical assistant at St. Joseph’s hospital in Paterson. She married and moved to Phoenix, Arizona where she spent the majority of her life raising her six children. We will miss her quick wit and sassy personality but most of all her generous heart. She loved to cook and bake and feed everyone. She loved gardening, she especially loved her roses. She is survived by her husband Charles Vlcek and children Edward Vlcek, Ada Cook, Anne Super, Sharon and Susan Vlcek, granddaughter Krissy Wertz, grandsons Rusty Edward and Tanner Cook, her sister Sonja Ceyler and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her eldest son Charles Vlcek Jr. earlier this year.
