Stephanie Alexandria Swierczek Cosgrove died peacefully at home on February 2, 2022, surrounded by family.

Though we are heartbroken, her legacy of love and laughter lives on through her ten children and 22 grandchildren.

Mom loved nurturing all things: children, chickens, and plants of all variety. She is well known in gardening circles. She dedicated many years to the Master Gardening program and could coax a stick in the ground into a beautiful tree.

She is sorely missed and fondly remembered by Leo, husband of nearly 61 years.

A Funeral Mass will be held 10:00 am on February 26 2022 at St. Teresa of Calcutta, 17856 Northeast Woodinville Duvall Road, Woodinville, WA, USA
The service will be live-streamed https://nsd.zoom.us/my/Jackson23

Following Mass, a Celebration of Life with appetizers/light lunch will be hosted at Brightwater Environmental Education and Community Center, 22505 WA-9 in Woodinville, WA

MOM , I MISS YOU SO MUCH. I SUBMITTED A FEW YEARS AGO A LITTLE BIO ABOUT MOM, TO THE LOCAL KING 5 NEWS STATION. THEY WERE DOING A “WORLDS BEST” CONTEST. OF COURSE, THEY CHOSE MY MOM TO AIR IT ON THE NEWS ! SHE WAS SO DELIGHTED TO SEE HERSELF ON THE TV! MOM IS A SUPER HERO!! RAISED 10 KIDS, LOVED 22 GRANDCHILDEN, NEVER JUDGED ANYONE…ANYONE. HAD PATIENCE THAT I DON’T THINK ANYONE CAN HAVE! WAS ALWAYS THERE TO TALK TO , TO LISTEN TO, AND TO SHARE A SMILE WITH. MY MOM IS WORLDS BEST MOM . SHE ALWAYS TOLD ME TO KEEP SMILING, SO I SAY TO YOU ALL, KEEP SMILING. I LOVE YOU MOM

“Mom, we love you so much.  You always made whomever you were with feel like the most important person in the world. You taught us that “horizons are never far” and that we could, should, and would reach our goals. You always made us feel successful – your kids, your grandkids, and your friends. Tęsknię za tobą, Mom. Love Anne, Mike, Alice and Zachary”

    Mom was the engine that propelled our family. She encouraged us to work together, to celebrate together and to appreciate each other. She loved each of her ten children individually, and adored every one of her 22 grandchildren. She was a life-long learner, a world traveler, and a magical gardener. Laughter came easily to Mom; she loved to share stories and turn experiences into lessons. Among the many people whose world became a little less colorful on February 2nd, are people who never knew her name—she was the nice lady they chatted to while waiting in line, got to know on an airplane, swapped stories with at the park. She made the world feel smaller, befriending everyone she met. She had a particularly soft spot for young families, never having lost sight of the struggles and triumphs of parenthood. She was a storyteller and a story gatherer. She was a go-getter, believing everything was achievable if “we all just work together”. Her faith was profound. She was quite an inspiration, though she would say that’s ridiculous. She was a whirlwind of activity, a great adventurer, a strong woman by every measure, and an amazing mom and grandma. We will miss our ability to hug her, to hear her voice, and to see the sparkle in her eyes. We are so privileged to have shared her life and to know she is forever in our hearts.

    Mom, I miss you so much. I am at such a loss for words, but my heart is filled with love for you, for Dad, and for our family. I extend my grief and joy to everyone who has come to know you. We love you, Mom, Babci, and Friend.

    Hey Mom, you’re my favorite person and always will be. You are in my heart, my head, my body, and my daughter. I love you so much and will talk to you every day. I promise to keep my head up and cherish those around me. You gave me and our family and friends the gift of your love and kindness. I miss you. I love. I am so happy to be your daughter. <3
