October 03, 2006

Kathleen Marie Dziwulski, a homemaker who raised nine children, died of pancreatic cancer Saturday at her Gardenville home. She was 77.

Born Kathleen Marie Althoff in Baltimore and raised on Barclay Street, she was a 1947 graduate of Seton High School. She entered the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia in 1948, but never professed her vows and left the order.

After raising her seven sons and two daughters, Mrs. Dziwulski, who was known as Kitty, became a clerical assistant to Dr. Ann Christopher, a Highlandtown dentist. She stopped working last month because of her illness.

Mrs. Dziwulski enjoyed duckpin bowling, square dancing and playing bingo and pinochle.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church, 4414 Frankford Ave., where she was a member.

Survivors include her husband of 54 years, Melvin M. Dziwulski, a retired Belfort Instrument engineer; six sons, David M. Dziwulski, Stephen A. Dziwulski, Thomas F. Dziwulski, Lawrence H. Dziwulski, Donald M. Dziwulski and Richard A. Dziwulski, all of Baltimore; two daughters, Theresa M. Dziwulski of Baltimore and Ann M. Graziosi of New Freedom, Pa.; three brothers, Joseph Althoff, John Althoff and James Althoff, all of Baltimore; and eight grandchildren. A son, James M. Dziwulski, died in 1988.
