In Loving Memory of

Eileen Theodora Owczarek


Eileen Theodora Owczarek, 90, of Fort White, Florida, passed in peace on December 6, 2021. She was born June 30, 1931, in New York to Frank and Mary “May” Anuszkiewicz. Preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Anthony “Tony” Owczarek, she is survived by her children, Frank, Tony, Kathy, and Doreen; grandchildren, Derrick, Christopher, Stasiu, Ryan, Christina, Justin, Tony, Sean, Jenna, Alex, Dakota, and Brian; and great-grandchildren, Josh, Tanya, Khloe, Sara, Drake, Allison, Jamie, Piper, and Steven. 

Eileen was known for bringing together a large, extended family as its matriarch. Her pride in her Polish heritage was reflected in the holiday meals she hosted and in actively participating in the lives of her children, grandchildren, great-nephews, and nieces. Together with her husband, she ran a New York-based hot dog and roll distribution business for decades, keeping the books and pursuing new opportunities for the shop. Her hobbies included oil painting, ceramics, and volunteering with the Women’s Auxiliary for the VFW.

She lies in repose at Evans Carter Funeral Home, 18724 North Main Street, High Springs, Florida, where a service will be held Sunday, December 12, at 3 p.m. She will be interred at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to St. Jude’s Hospital.
