Obituary for Jane M. Chernak August

Jane M. (Guevin) Chernak August, age 80, a longtime resident of Stratford, CT passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by family on Sunday, May 17, 2015 after a courageous battle with cancer. Jane was born the daughter of Paul and Gladys (Wehrle) Guevin in Derby, CT on August 28, 1934. Jane graduated from St. Catherine’s Academy in Newport, RI where she was a captain and star basketball player before returning to CT. Jane was a loving mother to five children, Linda D. Chernak of Stratford, CT, John P. Chernak of Stratford, CT, Cathy S. Chernak (deceased), Michael C. August of Stratford, CT and Eric J. August of Monroe, CT. Dedication to her family was paramount in her life and as a single parent for most of it, Jane was always there for her children as mother, role model and friend. Jane enjoyed spending time with her family most, watching her children grow up and play sports and then later her grandchildren. She loved the outdoors and spending time relaxing in the sun at the beach. In addition to her children, she is survived by her daughters-in-law Kathy and Michele; her grandchildren, Laura Chernak of Milford, CT, Michael C. August, Joseph E. August, both of Stratford, CT, Abigail C. August, Tyler D. August, both of Monroe, CT; her great grandchild, Jake T. Chernak-Herb of Milford, CT, as well as three brothers, Paul R. Guevin, Jr. of OH, George T. Guevin of OR and John R. Guevin of CT and their respective families. Friends are invited to attend her Funeral Service on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. in the William R. McDonald Funeral Home, 2591 Main St. Stratford, CT followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 9:00 a.m. in St. James Church, Stratford. Interment will follow in Mt Saint Peter’s Cemetery, Derby. Friends may visit with the family Thursday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jane's memory may be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, P.O.
