A six decade love story ended December 18-19 with the sudden passing of Charles Leonard Barancik (1928) and Margery Kay Lippa Barancik (1936).
Residents of Sarasota, FL and Northbrook, IL, Chuck (son of Henry and Carrie) and Margie (daughter of Lou and Portia) are survived by sons Steve (Lisa), Scott (Rebecca) and daughter Wendy. They were the adoring grandparents of Isabel, Dahlia, Hannah and Savannah. Chuck is survived by siblings Shirley, Richard (Claire) and Maury (Maija). Margie's beloved sister, Nancy Lippa Rosen Davis, predeceased them, as did their sister-in-law Sue. Numerous nieces, nephews and cousins made Margie's and Chuck's lives still richer.
The Baranciks live on in their Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation, a Sarasota-based philanthropic organization focused on children and families, poverty, mental health, the arts, and environmental stewardship.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to JFCS of the Suncoast or the charity of your choice.
They were laid to rest Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago, IL. Services will be there also.
David C. Gross Funeral Home/Hebrew Memorial Chapel is serving the family.
