It is with great sorrow that the Biernaskie family announce the passing of Isiah on August 26, 2021 at the age of 93.

He is survived by his wife Tessie and their five children: Irene, Gary, Joyce, Marilyn and Kevin (Laurie). Son of the late Joseph and Annie (Steffan) Biernaskie. He is survived by his siblings Raymond (Francis), Agnus (late Philip) Herron, Florence (late Charles) Peplinskie, Ernie (late Caroline), Joseph (late Joyce), Donald (late Anna Marie), Ronald and Philip (Rosie) Biernaskie. Predeceased by brothers Elmer (Nora), Benny and Desmond Biernaskie. A mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Monday, August 30, 2021 at 10:30 at St. Hedwig’s Church with Rev. Pawel presiding. We would like to thank the following people: Our pallbearers: Kevin Biernaskie (son), Ivon Peplinskie (nephew), Justin (great nephew), James Biernaskie (nephew), Jerry Yakabuskie (nephew) and Stephen Herron (great nephew). A special thank you to Dianne Smaglinskie for her thoughtfulness and support. You’re a lifesaver! The family appreciates the care and professionalism of the Heubner Funeral Home.
