Mrs. Johanna Cernosek Chudej Dies Following Long Illness

Mrs. Johanna Cernosek died at 5 p.m. Monday. She was 77 years old and had been in ill health for some time, and seriously ill for the past six months.

Funeral services were held at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 9, at the Church of the Assumption. Father George Doskocil officiated. Burial was in St. Mary's Cemetery. Rosary was recited at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday at Aderhold's Chapel.

Mrs. Chudej was born in Czechoslovakia, coming to Texas when she was about a year old. Her parents settled in Ammansville, and she lived there until 1922 when she moved to West with her husband, John Cernosek, and her children. Mr. Cernosek operated a grocery store here until he died of a heart attack on Christmas Eve of 1926 or 1927. She married Mr. Joseph Chudej in the early 1930s. He preceded her in death by several years.

Mrs. Cernosek was the mother of six children. Her oldest son Jerry died shortly after the family moved to West. Bernard Cernosek was an Air Force pilot who was lost over the Pacific during the Korean War. Her only daughter, Mrs. Rudolph Stanislav, died in West.

She was a member of the KJZT Lodge and the Altar Society.

Survivors include three sons: John Cernosek of Garland, Ivan Cernosek of Dallas and Ben Cernosek of West; one brother, F. F. Lednicky of West; one sister, Mrs. Frank Vacek of Richman.

Active pallbearers were her six grandsons: Rudy, Norbert and Leonard Stanislav, C. W., John and Bobby Cernosek.
