Susan A. Wolczyk Lorenc Sullivan, age 96, died peacefully at home Tuesday, March 9, 2021 in Abilene, Texas. She was born April 3, 1924 in Auburn, New York to Frank and Zofia Wolczyk.
Cremation arrangements are under the direction of The Hamil Family Funeral Home, 6449 Buffalo Gap Road. Time for visiting with the family will be held Tuesday, March 16 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the funeral home.
Susan was a lifelong resident of Auburn, NY and moved to Abilene, TX in the last three years of her life to be with her daughter and son-in-law. She spent the majority of her working career alongside her brother, “CJ,” at his accounting firm in Auburn. Her volunteering hours were endless and her shopping trips legendary. If you couldn’t get her on the phone in the evenings, she was surely out playing bingo. In her last few years, she enjoyed working on puzzles and crocheting lap robes for hospice.
She was preceded in death by her son, Joseph J. Lorenc; brothers, Aloysius Wolczyk, Constantine Wolczyk, and Florian Wolczyk; sister, Loretta Liszewski, and her parents, Frank and Zofia Wolczyk.
Susan is survived by her daughter, Janet Beckett and husband John; daughter-in-law, Donna Lorenc; and her grandchildren, Jeffrey and Karen Lorenc.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of the Big Country.
The family first began in the funeral business in 1933. The Hamil's legacy, beginning with the Elliott's to John and Jo Ann Hamil and now continuing with Robert and Karla Hamil, is to serve families in their time of need.
