Obituary for Edna V. Thelen-Dombrowski

Edna V. Thelen-Dombrowski, age 93, of McHenry, passed away on June 6, 2018 at Arboria Assisted Living & Memory Care of Long Grove. She was born to John and Blanche Milewski on September 24, 1924 in Hamtramck, MI.

During WWII, Edna served her country as a Rosie The Riveter for the Detroit War Plant Factory. After the war, Edna married her first husband, Peter Thelen, and started a family. The two were happily married for 28 years until his passing in 1972.

Edna worked for 25 years at Oaks Manufacturing as a Forelady in the Switch Department. On Feb 3, 1973, she was united in marriage to Elmer Joseph Dombrowski at St. Patrick’s Church in McHenry.

In her leisure time, Edna loved to polka dance, work with ceramics, and was an avid golfer. She traveled often with her second husband, Elmer, and together, they took many cruises. A doting mother and grandmother with a giving heart, Edna will be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her children, Jeffrey (Becky) Thelen and Tina Wilson; five grandchildren, Amy (Jon) Ricker, Lauri (Jeff) Barnard, Jessica, Abigail, and Olivia Thelen; and four great-grandchildren, MacKenzie, Jonathan, Grace, and Lilah.

In addition to her parents, Edna was preceded in death by her first husband, Peter, on August 2, 1972; and her second husband, Elmer, on June 12, 2010.
