Obituary for Patricia Ida Hlava

Patricia Ida Hlava, a longtime resident of Naperville, IL, was born on May 19, 1949 in Chicago, IL. She passed away peacefully on April 8, 2018 at her home, surrounded by the love of her family. Throughout her many illnesses, Pat fought hard and remained strong and positive, and lived each day to the fullest. Her greatest enjoyment in life was spending time with her family and telling them how much she loved them.

Patricia is survived by her devoted husband of 48 years, Jerry Hlava; her loving children, Jacqueline (Ray) Drew of Plainfield, IL, Jerome (Wendy Avon-Hlava) Hlava of Evanston, IL and Joseph Hlava of Naperville, IL; her cherished grandchildren, Matthew, Nicholas, Maya, Autumn and Paula; her dear brother, Michael (Patti) DeGirolamo; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Josephine DeGirolamo and her sister, Karen (Terry) Vermedal.

For those who would like to leave a lasting tribute to Pat’s life, memorials to the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Foundation, or the American Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
