Oral History Adeline Piechorowski Holvoet
Adeline and Phyllis Slisz ( My Mothers Sister) were childhood friends and lived very near each other. They played baseball a lot and when the game was over theyn would have a Bon fire and Adeline would bring the potatoes that they would eat because they had a grocery store.
Adeline remembers Uncle Louie Piechorowski comming to South Bend in his Model T to pick up the girls for a summer of fun at the farm in Terre Coupe In.
" I remember as soon as it got dark Uncle Louie would say "Everyone to Bed" as there was no electricity and everything was dark. It was scary going to the bedroom in the dark and there was a Big Tree outside the window with a Hoot Owl in it that scared the Devil out of my sister and I.
Take me home I said I don't want to come back here again...."
Uncle Louie also wanted the girls to do farm chores which might have also effected thier choice to go home !!!!
After Stanley died Uncle Louie looked after the girls, he was Adelines Godfather and gave her away at her wedding to George.

Authors Comment Jim Piechorowski 6-20-2000
One only has to be in the home of George and Adeline for a few moments to be a "Friend of the House". They are kind and gracious people in the tradition of thier respective parents and they obviously love each other and thier children very much.
While I was there little Miles & Evan called from Indianapolis and immediately became the center of attention.
Miles, Evan and Jarod as you read this in the future know that you are very fortunate to have a GranPa to take you fishing and teach you what he has learned in life and a GranMa ( Babcia ) in our terms who is there to hold and teach you.
You are the product and end result of thier lives and a little bit of them will be in your soul for all of your life. Pass this to your children as it is the most precious treasure you can give them.

[Piech~52.ftw]
When the depression hit he went into CCC Camp.
Oral History from Frank D Piechorowski:

He used to tell me stories of CCC camp.


He worked as a baker there.
He used to make the BEST pie crusts. He would mix them up right on the counter top, no measuring... did it all by feel. I remember he would take all the extra crust bits and cut them into strips and bake them with Cinnamon and sugar. I can still taste them 20 years later.
Once, he and the boys snuck out of camp one night and raided a local watermelon field, they brought all the watermelons back to camp and hid them all in the ceiling. The weight of the melons up there caused the ceiling to sag the commander noticed and had one of the men get a ladder and nail the ceiling back up. Well of course the when he tried to nail it back up, he hit a watermelon and this red liquid started to drip down on the floor, the commander though they had a body up in the ceiling. He said they got in SO much trouble.
In another, he told me of one way they would "Initiate" the new guys. They would come in, in the middle of the night, and have a "Short Arm Inspection". One guy would act as the officer, and one as a doctor. The "Doctor" would have a can of black shoe polish. After they were "Inspected" they would get a dob of shoe polish on them. Of course, as soon as they saw their "doctor" in the ranks with them they knew they had been had, but shoe polish can't be washed off... It has to wear off.
We know that Frank came to work for Ludwik (Uncle Louie) when his mother died, c. 1936
Oral History from Evelyn:

Kasper Slisz, Evelyn Father taught Frank how to hunt and fish, in that time for food, not for sport.


He married Evelyn and went to work for Oliver Corp.
Oral History from James:

1938/39 - A die fell out of the "Hot Hammer" at Oliver Corp and hit Frank in the knee, casuing the begining of his knee problems.


Frank was forced to retire from Oliver's in 1974 on disablility.
In 1964 James worked at Olivers on summer vacation on the same hot hammer

Notes for EVELYN RITA SLISZ:

Obituary: Evelyn R. Piechorowski

March 13, 1916 -- May 21, 2004
Evelyn R. (Slisz) Piechorowski, 88, of Granger, Ind., passed peacefully away in her sleep at 10 p.m. Friday, May 21, in the Holy Cross Healthcare Center, Dugdale Road, Granger, where she had resided for the last few years.
Evelyn was born on March 13, 1916, in South Bend, Ind., to Kasper and Mary (Andrysiak) Slisz, who preceded her in death. On Aug. 5, 1939, she married Frank A. Piechorowski in St. Adalbert's Church in South Bend. She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank, on Dec. 15, 1985. Also deceased are three brothers, Edmund, Clem and Fred; and four sisters, Irene, Henrietta, Esther and Phyllis.
Evelyn is survived by her sister, Alice Maeyens of South Bend; her son, James F. (Sharon) Piechorowski of Elkhart, Ind.; and two grandchildren, Frank D. of Memphis, Tenn., and Devon D. of Mishawaka, Ind.
Evelyn and Frank were married for nearly 50 years, residing at Fir Road in Granger. They attended St. Pius X Church since moving to Granger in 1955. Their lives were punctuated by hard work, love of family and a zest for life. As a child of the Depression, Evelyn would feed any (man or beast) who wandered too near the home, and was renowned for always having that second turkey on hand for Thanksgiving Day if anyone was really hungry.
She adored her grandchildren and was always on hand when needed to wipe a tear or sing their praises. Her last years were hard but she is happy now in the presence of her God and the love of her husband.
Evie will be missed by all who had the good fortune to cross her path.
A formal Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for Mom at St. Katherine's of Alexandria in Brzyskorzystew, Poland, the church of our ancestors.
Visitation will be from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, May 24, in THE ST. JOSEPH FUNERAL HOME, 1827 E. Ireland Road, where a Rosary will be prayed at 8 p.m. Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, May 25, in the funeral home, followed by burial at St. Joseph's Cemetery, South Bend.
Oral History from Elsie:

They were introduced by Aunt Elsie when she was fifthteen. She played basketball for St Adelbert's grade school.... Frank played ball on the men's team... Elsie and Evelyn used to go to dances and ZB Falcon's almost every Saturday night, and one night Elsie introduced them. Elsie's Husband Uncle Elmer was in CC Camp with Frank.


Oral History from Evelyn:

My mother used to say, when I was young, "That one's going to be a clean one", because when by the time I was old enough to pick up a rag, I was going around the house dusting.


When I first met Frank, he didn't turn me on, he came over at least 3 times that night and asked me to dance, but I came up with an excuse each time. Several Saturdays after that he kept coming and asking me to dance, so finally I figured, what can it hurt, and I danced with him. We had the rest of that evening. He took me home and we made a date for next Tuesday because the Cole Brothers Circus was in town. That was our first date.

Marriage Notes for FRANK PIECHOROWSKI and EVELYN SLISZ:

[Piech~52.ftw]


Oral History from Evelyn Piechorowski

Frank took and purposed to Evelyn on Christmas eve, 1937. He bought a box of chocolates and put the ring in the box for her to find. When she opened the box she said "Ohhh Chocolate...", and was very disappointed because he had bought her candy for Valentines day. She thought, but didn't say "Am I ever going to be engaged to you?". Frank could see that she was disapointed so he let her stew for a few days and called her back asking if she had eaten the candy yet. She said she had had a few pieces. He told her to go have some more and tell him how she liked them... that's when she found the ring.


Frank Earned the money to buy both Evelyn's engagement ring and their wedding ring with the help of Ludwik (Uncle Louie). Ludwik gave frank a plot of land on the farm that Frank was to grow and tend pickles on. All the money that he made from the pickles is what he used to buy the rings.
