      JOSEPHINE ALTMAN MICHALAK, born October 14, 1925, passed into God's loving hands on February 23, 2010.
       
      A native Houstonian, she was born, raised her family and lived her entire life in the Heights. She was always active in her neighborhood civic club meetings.Josephine was a member of All Saints Catholic Church and an active member of the Altar and Rosary Society. She could easily be spotted with her welcoming smile and wearing her favorite color, purple. She was always ready and willing to help whenever there was a need or task to be done.It was the simple things in life that she enjoyed most: family, good friends, neighbors and most of all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed playing Bingo, most often with her best friend Stephanie, and always shared her winnings by treating her grandchildren to lunch. She always looked forward to her weekly outings with her Granddaughter-in-law Gaye. She also loved caring for her pet birds and enjoyed feeding all the wild ones that found their way into her yard.
       
      Josephine was preceded in death by her husband Edmund S. Michalak, daughter Rosie Lee Hablinski, grandson Dr. Brian J. Hablinski, and sisters Albina Krusleski and Lillie Miles. She is survived by a family who loved her dearly: sons Lawrence Ray (Sonny) Michalak and Glenn P. Michalak and wife Doris; son-in-law Daniel Hablinski; sisters Dorothy Pettis and Helen Roberts Waddell; grandchildren Craig Hablinski and wife Gaye, Karen Lade and husband Mike, Trenton Michalak and Marissa Michalak; and six great grandchildren, Matthew, Zachary, Andrew, Luke, Sean, and Ryan.
