Sharon L. Przybylo
Sharon L. Przybylo (Goodwin), 55, passed away on Friday, December 28 surrounded by loving family and friends. Sharon was born in Waukegan on July 30, 1963, to Margaret Goodwin and thus began her life-long suffering as a Cubs fan. She grew up and resided in Round Lake Beach, IL for many years. After living in Lancaster, SC for a short time, it was her desire to be near family that led her back to Lindenhurst, IL, where she spent the remainder of her life. United in marriage on July 23, 1983, Sharon spent 35 happy years with her best friend Robert “Bob” Przybylo. Together, they enjoyed time with friends and family, sitting around a campfire, playing cards, going to concerts, and cheering on the Cubs and Bears. Always in search of a great bargain at Goodwill, Sharon’s greatest deal was her two children, Mathew and Monika, who in turn gave her three beautiful granddaughters. She lived for Delilah, Amelia and Isla. An accomplished cook, she often spent time with them baking her famous banana bread, cookies and red sauce. When she wasn’t cooking, she loved to take the girls to Bay Beach Amusement Park, volunteer in their classrooms, and read to them. Sharon held many jobs throughout her life, working as an assistant teacher at Peppermint Stick Preschool for many years, as an insurance agent, and then returned to the school system where she worked in various roles with special education, but her family always came first and her greatest labor of love was being a mother and “nana.” Sharon was proud of her time in color guard and kept in touch with her fellow “Rebelaires.” Sharon also had a life-long passion for the Cubs and had the opportunity of a lifetime to attend Games 6 and 7 in Cleveland to watch the Cubs win the 2016 World Series. Surviving her is her husband Robert Przybylo; children, Mathew (Emily) Przybylo and Monika Przybylo; 3 grandchildren, Delilah Denikas, Amelia Denikas and Isla Przybylo; mother, Margaret Goodwin and the man who became a father to her, George Randall; mother- and father-in-law, Joyce and Allen Greenspon; sisters, Annette (Rod) Sheets, Doreen (John) Cashmore, Paula Jenkins; cousin Dolly (Mark) Hoffer; many nieces and nephews; and her very good friends, Kitty and the Madden sisters. She was preceded in death by her brothers-in-law, Mike and Tim Przybylo and grandparents, Mildred Minghi, Verna Bork, and John Hommrich. It is evident by the outpouring of love, that Sharon Przybylo impacted many lives with her compassion, generosity and warm-loving heart. When you see a penny on the ground, pick it up, and continue to keep her memory alive. Services will be held at Strang Funeral Chapel in Grayslake, IL on Friday January 4th 2019. Visitation from 10AM-2PM followed by a graveside service at Avon Centre Cemetery (intersection of Shorewood Rd and Route 83). Strang Funeral Chapel, 410 E Belvidere Rd, Grayslake, IL 60030.
