William G. “Bill” Labushevicz, age 90, a resident of Gordon, died on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, at Hayward Health Services after a short illness.
Bill was born on January 14, 1930, in Chicago, Illinois, to parents George and Mary (Futa) Labushevicz. As a child, the family moved out of the city to Elmwood Park, Illinois. Bill graduated from Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois, and worked for a year before entering the US Navy in 1951. He served in the Caribbean and was honorably discharged in 1955. In 1955 he was united in marriage to the love of his life, Therese Czerniak. They would buy their home in Elmwood Park in 1955 and live there until a year after Therese died in 2004, selling it in 2005, and moving to Gordon, Wisconsin. Bill and Therese loved to ice fish, dance, and spoil their many nieces and nephews together.
Bill is survived by his many nieces and nephews and sister-in-law Marie Lewandowski. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife Therese, his parents, and his brothers and sisters: John, Ann, Walter “Eddie”, Andrew, Joe, Kay Kovar, Mike, and Stella Calamia.
Prayers were said for Bill in recent Masses at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Solon Springs, Wisconsin, by Father James Kinney. His cremated remains will be interred with his wife at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Evergreen Park, Illinois. Solon Springs Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.
