Flora F. Piasecki
Flora F. Piasecki, age 84, passed away on Aug. 22, 2019, at the Lakeside Villa Assisted Living in Phillips while under the care of Flambeau Home Health and Hospice. She was born in Berwyn, Ill., in 1934 to Alfred and Anna Bordwick. Flora took pride in the fact that she was a professional secretary for Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Ill. She married Edward (Bud) Piasecki in Westmont, Ill., in 1952. They moved to Minocqua in 1968, where they owned and operated first Rainbow Resort and then Coachlite Resort, both on Lake Minocqua. Following Edward’s death in 1999, Flora continued to operate the Coachlite Resort until her retirement to Phillips in 2008. Some of her fondest memories were of the multiple generations of families and friends that returned to the resort year after year. Flora was an avid swimmer, water skier, and reader. She was nearly unbeatable at Scrabble. Flora is survived by her three children: Matthew (Beth) Piasecki, Minocqua, Alis (Doug) Fox, Phillips, and Guy (Sherry), Hobe Sound, Florida; seven grandchildren: Nathan and Brian (Jessica) Piasecki, Adam (Samantha) and Isaac Bosacki, and Matthias (Amanda), Alex, and Max Piasecki; three step-grandchildren: Emily (Joshua) Moore Feicht, Katie (Joshua) Moore Zimmer, and Elizabeth (Michael) Fox Baclig; and three great-grandchildren. A private memorial service will be held at a future date.
