Re: OBIT: Ray Kusler, son of Antonio Parzych, lived ND,WIS,WA State
My name is Gene G.(Jerry)Boehm, son of Eugene G. and Mary Boehm. My mother was a sister of "Toni", his mother,and also: Blanche:(Sons: Steve and Mike Ashcraft), Barbara, Ilene("Irene"):(Son:Kenny), Helen and Joe. I do not remember the other siblings names. Joe gave me a japanese military sword on his return from WW11. I was told my cousin "Bunny" was a friend of Cyd Charise and that they had gone to Hollywood together. I met Raymond at his Bellevue, Wa home. He had been the President of Princess Tours(Division of Princess Cruises). While I was there he showed me a very detailed picture of our family tree(wish I had that now)!! I still have the business card he gave me!! My guess is that my grandmother Mary Parzych was related to the Popielarski family of Milwaukee, Wis. The name Popielarski appears on an original copy of my birth certificate which I had only recently obtained!! I think my mother had mistakenly submitted her mothers maiden name for the my birth record of "mothers maiden name" instead of hers!! My mother was born in Poland. She said in a small village near Warsaw. Grandfather Parzych worked the railroad in North Dakota. They settled in Milwaukee, Wis. My email is email@example.com. I'm 74 and I live in Tigard, OR. with my wife of 51 yrs.
