Barbara Helen Lazarski of Malvern, PA passed away on January 23, 2024 with her loving husband, Edward Lazarski, by her side.
Born on May 9, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Walter Kadyszewski and the late Helen Petrovich Kadyszewski. Barbara grew up in Kulpmont, PA as the 10th of 12 children. She won a Miss Betty Crocker title and was crowned Miss Valentine at Kulpmont High School.
Barbara received her nursing degree from St. Joseph’s Nursing School in Reading, PA. She began working as an RN at Embreeville and Memorial Hospitals. Barbara then worked at Chester County Hospital for more than 40 years. She attended Immaculata College to pursue her Bachelor of Science in Nursing while working full-time and graduated with the support of her family and friends in 1994.
Barbara was a long-time member of St. Agnes Parish and spent her summers at the former West End Swim & Tennis club scoring swim meets and sitting on the beach after her shift at the hospital.
Barbara enjoyed her family outings from Hershey Park to beach vacations and especially traveling with her husband. Together they visited Europe multiple times and especially enjoyed visiting Poland to celebrate their heritage. They also made many road trips to see National Parks and sites around the US, along with visiting their children as they moved across the country.
