Barbara Ann Soliday

Sadly we lost our Angel on April 2nd, 2024 after a long

illness. She is survived by her 3 sons, Shawn, Todd and

Jason. Her middle child was particularly smart and handsome


Barbara was a hard worker and was always willing to get

her hands dirty. She was a talented seamstress but was

not afraid to work on cars or anything else. She was

never known to be extravagant and reserved her time and

energy to making sure her family was provided for.


Barbara worked at US Steel in her younger years and

later on rose to become the personal assistant to the

owner of the Drury Lane Martinique. She then worked

for Amlings delivering flowers in a 1978 Checker Taxi

cab that her customers loved. She also worked for

Portillos Restaurants and was lauded highly for her

smile and personality. Laster on she furthered her

working career and talents and became and embroiderer.


After her dreams of having a family became a reality

she moved to Alsip Illinois into a modest house with

her Husband Ralph and their growing family. That house

would later include a dog, a large pool and awful neighbors


Barbara was at the helm of every moment of her family.

Although sometimes not ideal she drove a 1973 Chevrolet

Caprice Station wagon to get jobs done. Just like her

it kept moving on for as long as it could.


Barbara’s life was brightened by the birth of her first

grandchild, Juliet Soliday. She loved being a grandma

and was later blessed with 3 more. Violet lit up her

life even further and just when she thought she couldn't

love anything else as much as she loved them, along came

Scarlett who again changed her life. Her grandson Wyatt

came behind shortly after and brightened up her smile

She loved her grandchildren extremely.


Barbara put herself before others and put everyone first

even though she deserved to be #L. Barbara's memory will

forever live with the many people she touched, hugged,

and love throughout her life. God Bless you in this

next journey of your life.


Barbara was also a loving sister to Anthony and

Deborah Mazrim and a proud aunt to Jacqueline and

Melissa Mazrim. She was also a loving aunt to

another Jacquiline (common name apparently), Ryan

and Samantha whom she adored. She will be greatly

missed by all of us she touched. She was one of

the greats.


Laura and Ray Trusk have been and always been a part of

our family and were a rock to us throughout the years.


Barbara was preceded in death by her Father, Anthony

Mazrim and her mother Ann Mazrim whom she loved very

much. She was also preceded in death by a child, Brian

Soliday. God has your now. Jesus has you now!

Maybe you can alter some of those robes. They seem

to be dragging a little bit.
