LAKE BRUCE — Tony J. Jeroski, 91, Lake Bruce, passed away at 2:32 p.m. Monday, March 11, 2013, in his lake residence.

Born March 10, 1922, he was the son of Louis and Anna Jedzrowski. He was married to Betty Burrous, who preceded in death in 1971. He was then married Thelma Rhody, who preceded in death in 1998.

Tony owned and operated the American Window Cleaning Service.

He was a member of All Saints Catholic Church and occasionally attended St. Ann’s Church, Kewanna, after moving to the lake. He also enjoyed the kindness and fellowship of the Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church family at Lake Bruce.
