Bridget Trach

May 19, 1927 — February 24, 2020

Bridget F. Trach, 92, of Lake Geneva, passed away Monday, February 24, 2020 at Golden Years Nursing Home.

Born in Scottdale, Pennsylvania on May 19, 1927, she was the daughter of Francis and Tillie (nee Korba) Czaja.  Her early life was spent in Pennsylvania, where she attended Scottdale High School.  On September 30, 1950, she was united in marriage to John Trach.  They continued to reside in Scottdale following marriage.  In 2016, Bridget moved to the Burlington, Wisconsin area.

Bridget was a homemaker and member of the Columbian Ladies at St. Johns Church, and she volunteered for the church fish fries.  She also was a long-time member of the Scottdale Senior Citizen Club.  She loved going to casinos, visiting her children in the Midwest, attending sporting events and concerts with her family and had a new-found appreciation for a “Butter Burger”.

Bridget is survived by her children, Virginia (Stan) Leczner of Camden, Delaware, Robert (Joan) Trach of Willowbrook, Illinois and Paula (Jeff) Martin of Burlington, Wisconsin; grandchildren, Tim (Lauren) Trach, Stephen Trach, Sarah Trach, Katie (Mike) Rescenete and Adam (Alyssa) Leczner; and sister, Mary Ann Stasko.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Thomas Czaja, sister Stella (Paul) Seman and brother-in-law Ellwood Stasko.

The family would like to thank Oak Park Place and Golden Years Skilled Nursing for their care and compassion during this time.
