Hello Cindy, I'm from Lodi CA. My maiden name was Pekarek my dad Donald Pekarek is the reason I'm writing you. My dads father was Joseph Pekarek and his grandfather was also Joseph Pekarek and his grandpa did die in 1952 the year you wrote about. We are interested in the obit. I do believe that it is my dads grandpa. Most of my dads relatives were from North Dak. and Nebraska. Would like to hear from you! Thank You. Debra Dodge.
