Remarks of Remembrance-Eulogy for Josephine Louise Mogelnicki      By:  Robin Mogelnicki
Our Mother, Josephine Louise Orlowski Mogelnicki, was born at home in St. Louis, MO on November 9, 1924 in Old North St. Louis in her family ’ mho upstairs apartment & delivered by a Fireman who lived in the apartment downstairs. The 2nd youngest of 13 siblings of Aleksandra ( nee Chromoga ) Orlowski, and Michael Orlowski, immigrants from Poland to Ellis Island in the 1890 ’ second .
She lived her integral animation in St. Louis, MO. Baptized in 1925 at St. Lawrence O ’ Toole ’ s Catholic Church. She made her First Holy Communion in 1937 and her confirmation in 1938 by the Rev. John Glennon, both sacraments at Our lady of the Visitation Catholic Church .
As a small female child during the Great Depression, they moved to a sign of the zodiac near Baden and Calvary Cemetery off North Broadway near the railroad track tracks. They moved to this placement to be close to her Father ’ s sour where he was employed as a laborer at a Metal Company on North Broadway. Her older brothers would hop onto the railroad track box cars as the trains slowed polish on aim so her brothers could throw potatoes on the ground for her to collect for dinner. Her Mother would put coals into the ember stove to warm the firm and besides to boil the potatoes-sometimes that is all they had for dinner .
They would walk miles to go to Baden Grade School, where the Principal bought her brothers, sisters & herself all winter coats one year with his own money, and where she remembered Santa Claus coming down that beautiful oak stairway. She remembered the Salvation Army, being the lone organization that delivered toys to their house, even being indeed glad to receive a “ break in ” laid of plaything dishes, pots & pans & was then glad bet house with that set .
She was 11 years previous when her Father was murdered on Mother ’ s Day weekend 1936, leaving her mother to raise her remaining new children still living at home. Our Mother frequently remembered a time when a Social Worker woman was caught and arrested by patrol for stealing partially of the Orlowski family ’ second monthly Welfare Checks while doing a Welfare Check-in at their home plate. The incidents caused the Orlowski family to about starve to death during the Great Depression .
She graduated from Baden Grade School in 1938, and The Herbert S. Hadley Technical High School in 1942, and attended night school at Saint Louis University studying Theology while working full prison term at Union Electric as a Computer Specialist for 12 years .
She dated and married Stanley Theodore Mogelnicki, Sr., in 1956 at St. Engelbert ’ s Catholic Church. They were introduced by their Mothers ( Aleksandra Orlowski and Julianna ( nee Komosinski ) Mogelnicki ). Stanley was a 1930 ’ second calibrate of the prestigious St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Grade School, the largest grade school in the St. Louis Catholic Archdiocese at the time, an Army Veteran of World War II, and Chief Superintendent of the Federal US Army Personnel Record Center. Through their love followed Stan Jr., Maria and I ( Robin ). They purchased their first gear theater in North City, and then subsequently moved into another house they purchased in Our lady of Mount Carmel Parish. After the parturition of her first child, she left Union Electric, and became a Full Time Homemaker for the following 12 years. She then later returned to the outside work force to work Full Time at Mercantile Bank NKA US Bank Trust Dept. so she could afford to continue to send her children to Catholic schools. She retired after 20+ years. As her children we remember her that she was a mother that made every birthday and vacation season special for us, and the many sacrifices she made for our Catholic & higher education .
She became a cousin to Rev. Vincent Mogelnicki, by marriage to her conserve Stanley Mogelnicki, Sr., and enjoyed many of the polish festival events at St. Casimir, and St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Parishes. She was very active and proud of her Catholic faith and polish inheritance.

When she was nobelium longer physically able to drive a car she walked everywhere daily up to 2-3 miles a day. When she was nobelium longer physically able to live on her own, I ( her daughter Robin ) invited her to live with me in St. Monica ’ s Catholic Parish. She called everyone on their birthday and sing happy Birthday to them when she was no longer capable of mailing Birthday cards .
She was always the Family Historian. She was deep in custom, family and beloved. She was constantly positive and loved everyone. She showed up at every party or Family consequence that she was invited to even though she was physically challenged in a wheelchair due to weakness brought on by aging. Her last big family celebration was on her 95th birthday attending her Great Nephew Pete Zakrzewski, III ’ sulfur, 50th marry anniversary to his wife Mary. She always kept in high attentiveness all her children, Godson, Grandchildren, & Great Grandchildren & all her Nieces & Nephews, Great Nieces & Nephews, Great Great Nieces & Nephews, & Great, Great, Great Nieces & Nephews, and all of them actually knew her. We have so much to be grateful for. Our Mother lived retentive adequate for all of us to know her .
Our Mother was a great fudge, rapacious reader, and mentally sharp to the end. She had a photographic memory and a mind like a calculator with numbers. She passed away from natural causes .
The Pink Sisters of Mount Grace Convent mailed us a poem that Death is not extinguishing the Light. Death is putting out the Lamp because the Dawn has come. Mother we will miss your physical presence but you will always be with us in our hearts. We Love You .
