PARIZEK, Michael L.

Michael L. Parizek Feb 6, 1947 – Sep 23, 2016 On September 23, 2016 we lost an amazing husband, father, grandpa, brother, and friend. Michael Lee Parizek was born on February 6, 1947 in Omaha to George “Stumps” and Lucille Parizek. He attended St. Bridget’s school and graduated from South High in 1965. He attended Omaha University “UNO” and graduated from BYU with a Master’s Degree in Engineering. His career began at Western Electric and he retired from Lucent in 1999. He was also a proud card-carrying member of Menard’s Contractors Club. He was a devoted member of Mary Our Queen Parish, living his faith in action and words. Throughout the years he served the parish in every way imaginable and never hesitated to step up to a challenge. The center of Michael’s life was always his family. He is survived by his wife and best friend, Mary (Mahlberg) Parizek; their children: Brian Parizek (Lisa), Kristen Schwers (Roger) Andrew Parizek (Paula), Amy Schwartzenberger (Isaac), and Jill Chandler (Noel). He was a loving and wonderful Grandpa to: Sidney, Emma, and Lucy Parizek, Steven, Alex, and Lauren Schwers, Lily and Oscar Parizek, and Courtney Chandler. He had hoped to meet his tenth grandchild, whose arrival is expected in October. Being a loving big brother to his siblings was also important to Mike, their “Pater Familias,” a title they all took to heart: Pat Parizek (Nora), Sr. Georgeann Parizek, RSCJ, and Joe Parizek. He was a blessing and a wonderful brother-in-law to: Jane Ortmeier (Tom), Carol Mahlberg, and Kevin Mahlberg (Brenda). He was also called Uncle Mike by numerous nieces and nephews, each of whom felt like his favorite. Michael was predeceased by his parents, “Stumps” and Lucille Parizek; his brother, Peter; and his parents-in-law, Bud and Elsie Mahlberg. Anyone who was a friend of Mike knew they had a friend for life. The world was a better place because Mike Parizek was in it. The family will receive friends Tuesday, September 27th, from 4pm to 7pm at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church, 3405 S. 118th Street, with VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm at the church. MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL Wednesday, September 28th at 11am at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church. Memorials are suggested to Mary Our Queen Tuition Assistance.
