Delphine F. Kobylczyk, age 83, died on March 31, 2017. She was born Novemeber 23, 1933 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Stanley Ejnowski and the late Anna (nee:Andrejewski) Ejnowski.
Delphine was a woman who possessed a host of passions that stirred her heart, none-so-much as the loving relationship she shared with the love of her life, Fred. Together, they shared over 50 wonderful years of marriage building upon the comforts of home, raising a beautiful family, and growing deeper in love with each passing day. Fred proceeded Delphine in death, but left her a bounty of memories in his absence.
Aside from the love and nurturing she poured into being a homemaker and Mom, Delphine worked outside of the home as a secretary in the local school system. Yet when she wasn't working and was caught up with her duties at home, Delphine was known for being quite the avid reader. When she was looking for a little peace and solitude, curling up with a good book was most always the perfect path to serenity.
Another of Delphine's favorite pastimes included her love of travel, with her trip to Europe being a notable highlight. Being the consummate history buff, experiencing some of the land where much of our history began made those travels extra special. Yet of all the places Delphine traveled, one of the most cherished was each trek made to the family cottage up at Higgins Lake. Just one of Michigan's pristine lakes that many enjoy throughout the year, Delphine and her family were elated to consider the cottage their "home away from home." When it was time to escape the concrete jungle for a taste of Michigan's relaxation up north, Higgins Lake was often the destination of choice. And if the environment weren't enough to make it all special, it was made even more so each time the grandchildren shared it with her. The memories Delphine held of being at the cottage with the kids were some of the most precious of the plethora created over the years.
Another important aspect to the story of Delphine would definitely be her strong and abiding faith, a strength she always called upon in the time of need. Known for being devout in her Catholic faith, she worked out her faith with the heart of a servant and the prayers of a warrior, and did it all with extreme humility and grace. To many, Delphine was the kind of person who was blessed with "9 Lives,"…but really, she was merely blessed. It was her abiding faith the lifted her up,…clothed her with compassion,…and was a testament to all of God's love and care. That same love and care was passed down to her loved ones and was a beacon to them all at just the right time.
A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Delphine was a shining example of living right, loving much, and doing her best to laugh as much as possible. No matter the circumstances, laughter is always the best medicine and Delphine loved to share hers openly. She leaves behind a storehouse of precious memories, life lessons, and loving touches that impacted countless hearts and souls throughout her life's journey,…especially those dear ones entrusted to her care. To they, and all who were blessed to know her and be loved by her, she will be missed immensely and loved eternally.
She was the beloved wife of the late Fred, and dear mother of Rosemary (Bob) Gow, Steven (Lisa) Kobylczyk, Eileen (David) Kastura, and Julie (Mark) LaMothe. Also survived by 10 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren.
Visitation for Delphine will be held on Wednesday 5-9 pm and at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Rd. at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd.), Warren. She will lie in state Thursday 10:00 am until time of service at 10:30 am at St. John Fisher Chapel University Parish, 3665 E. Walton Blvd. Auburn Hills.
