Enis L. Kocisek, 101, of Lawrence, Kansas, passed away January 16, 2021.
She was born on July 21, 1919, in the City of London, England to Anthony and Antonietta Costella. She emigrated to the USA in February 1955 to marry Englebert (Bert) Kocisek. They raised their family in Homestead, Florida.
She was a gifted tailor and seamstress. She was known for her indelible sweetness and caring nature. Always smiling, laughing and so very thoughtful to remember everything about you, a woman with a very kind and compassionate spirit. An avid reader, lover of chocolate and fan of British shows.
She is survived by her four daughters, Lorraine and Mike Purcell (Pt St Lucie, FL), Denise and Kevin Baker (Independence, MO), Audrie and Tim Wenger (Lawrence) and Connie K. Grob (Lawrence). Her grandchildren, Mark and Alissa Grett, Laura Grett, Elizabeth Friend, Melanie Steffen, Marshall Grob and Spencer Grob. Her great-grandchildren, Mason, Amelia, and Evelyn Grett. Her nieces and nephews, Christine Copp (Lawrence), Janet and Jim Christiano (Huntington Beach, CA), John and Avril Costella (London) and Frank and Toni Costella (London).
We want to thank Emalea Muller, Arbor Court residents and staff, VNA Hospice, LMH Palliative Care and Medicalodges in Eudora for the wonderful care and support.
