This is my grandfather, John J. Gasinski, father of my mother, Kazimiera "Kay" Gasinski, in his confectionary/tavern in Chicago. I believe my mom is standing next to him, and her sister Bee (nee Gasinski)Peterson in the background, or visa versa. (They look soooo much alike!) The 2 patrons are unknown, though one looks to be a policeman. This is where my parents (Ira G. Eppinger and Kay nee Gasinski Eppinger) met. As dad tells it, he came to meet her sister, Bee, but saw mom and fell in love and said to himself, "I am going to marry that girl!" And they did, Oct. 16, 1943. They would have celebrated 59 yrs. together in 2002, but the good LORD needed a special angel and took mom to Heaven.... My grandfather, John, was married to Teopita/Teofilia (nee Lenart) Gasinski and had 7 children: John, Ted, Kay (my mother), Bee, Stephanie, and the twins Delores and Jeanne.
at John's confectionary/tavern, Chicago, IL.
