Roberta (Bobbie) Sredzinski, peacefully joined the love of her life, Leo, in heaven on July 28, 2022 at the age of 90. She was surrounded by her loving children. Bobbie was blessed with 5 children who just adored her. Lee (Melinda) Sredzinski, Laura (Paul) Watts, Lisa (Bill) Martin, Leslie (Kevin) Devine, and Lynn (Dale) Clapp. Mom loved all of her sons-in-law and her daughter-in-law like they were her own. She was the best and loving grandmother to Justin (Carly) Vest, Brandi (Joe) Santogatta , Lisa (Brian) Beller, Thomas Devine, Dale (Rebecca) Clapp, Emily Martin (Brad), and Kelly (Scott) Hutchins. Her loves were her great-grandchildren Meleah, Carter, Cooper, Kyla, Eva, and Harrison. She had so many joys in her life, notably her nieces and nephews: Catherine, Greg, David, Nancy, and Joanne; the children of her late brother Adolph Cherechinsky. She loved her sister-in-law Nancy Balzer and she was a dear friend to Evelyn Helm, Carol O'Donnell, and Rita Viellieu. She is survived also by Leo’s family: Danny, Diane, Elaine, and Judy and their families. Bobbie was proud to be the daughter of the late Adolph and Helen Cherechinsky who loved her so much.
Bobbie was a homemaker for many years and also worked at Bishop Noll Institute and Chicago Magazine.
Bobbie was an active member of the St. Paul Catholic Church in Valparaiso and a former member of OLG in Highland. She loved watching her IU basketball games and was an avid Bobby Knight fan. Our mom will be greatly missed but we know she is in heaven with our Heavenly Father, our dad, her parents, brother, and many of her dear friends.
There will be a private family funeral. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Lynn- I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a great lady and such a fun mom! I have so many fun memories of hanging out at your house and her laugh! She will surely be missed, but it is also a blessing knowing she is at peace and she had a long wonderful life with a great family. Let’s say it one more time together: S as in Sam, R-E-D as in David, Z as in zebra, I-N—S-K-I. -Nora (Scanlon) Shaw
