Obituary for Michele "Mickey" K. Styrsky

Michele K. "Mickey" Styrsky (nee Rasmussen), age 78, beloved wife for 55 years to the late Jerry J. Styrsky, LTC Ret. U.S. Army. Loving mother of Jerry David (Melissa) Styrsky and Krista (Tony) Smerz. Cherished grandmother of Alex and Abby Smerz and Ty, Jace and Cade Styrsky. Dear sister of Sue (the late Chuck) Bjurlin, Beth (the late Doug) Stuart and the late Paulette (Alvaro) Rivas.

Mickey was a school nurse for many years serving the North Palos School District #117, the Evergreen Park School District #124 and AERO Special Education Cooperative. After her retirement from Evergreen Park School District #124, she continued to substitute for District #124 and AERO until this past March when the schools closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mickey had also been the Health Inspector for the city of Oak Forest for many years.

Mickey was an active lifetime member of the VFW #2791 Auxiliary and a member of AVMRA Chapter X. She loved serving veterans and others through activities with the VFW, AVMRA and Faith United Methodist Church of Orland Park.

A Service to celebrate Mickey's life will take place at a later date at Faith United Methodist Church in Orland Park. Interment will take place at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, IL, where she will be placed with her late husband Jerry.

Steve and I just learned of Mickey’s death, and are saddened by it. Mickey had a strong faith and was always living it out, as best she knew how, in service to others. We will miss seeing her when we come back to visit Faith UMC, whenever that will be. Our deepest condolences to the family! Mary and Steve

I have known Mickey and her late husband Jerry since the mid 60's.
We met at the Oak Forest Methodist Church.
We were in the Women's Group Dorcus Circle and that gave me several life long friends, Mickey Styrsky, Sandy Mawhinnie, Marge Sundblad, Judy Davis and Linda Larson and Lynn Sanders.
My memories will be the kindness Jerry who only died last year, showed to me when I was diagnosed with Leukemia.
After my husband Don died, Mickey called me and said Jerry wanted to talk to me or see me. I drove over to their house and he
said he felt bad he didn't do anything for me.
With that on two crutches, Jerry went into his Den and came out
with a present for me. The present was NOAH, The Cancer Society Bear which spoke aloud a beautiful verse about how I would never be alone and may the wind always be at my back.
I'll never forget him for that and Mickey and I when members of
the Oak Forest Couple's Club hosted the Dessert Course at my
house when we had a Progressive Dinner. I was just beside myself.
I wanted to go to the bakery or Jewel to buy dessert and she insisted on bakery, 3 small children at the time so I agreed and we
came up with Pineapple Upside Down Cake squares with
Whipped Cream.
We went to their house several times for get togethers.
The past 2 years I volunteered on Christmas Day at the Tinley
Park VFW serving dinners to the Great Lakes Naval Recruits and will continue to do that as it was important to the Styrskys.
Be happy you two. God Bless You Both!

It is will great sadness that I learned Mickey had passed. She was such a vibrant woman whose life touched many. Her presence here at PRIDE School will be missed. I always loved when she gave a student a "stern" talking to. It was always with the genuine need to help and guide them and it made me smile. As to her jokes, she loved her jokes. Now that she is with her beloved husband Jerry, she will take Heaven by storm! Sincere condolences to her family. with Love Kathy Kelly
