Fleurette J. Workman

December 16, 1936 — July 19, 2023

Fleurette J. Workman, formerly of Hegewisch, a loving and cherished soul, passed away peacefully at home with her family on July 19, 2023, leaving behind a host of cherished memories that will forever warm the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her. Born on December 16, 1936, to Ralph and Louise Wriska, Fleurette led a life filled with love, compassion, and dedication to her family. Raised alongside her identical twin sister LaVerne (late Ken) Stiert, Fleurette discovered the profound beauty of sisterhood from an early age. Their bond was unbreakable, and their shared experiences enriched their lives.

Her adored husband, Laurence O. Workman Jr., may have preceded her in death, but their love story continues to inspire all who hear it. One cannot mention Fleurette's life without acknowledging her role as a devoted mother. James Collins, late Jeannette Collins, Laurence O. (Diana) Workman III, Sandy (Bret) Rhodes, late John Workman, Tammy J. (Tom) Wedryk and Scott (Angie) Workman were blessed to call Fleurette their mother. 

Fleurette's unconditional love extended beyond motherhood and reached the hearts of many grandchildren. Jenni (Dan) Crane, Julie (Chris) Dieter, John (Brianna) Rhodes, Jason (Natalia) Wedryk, Courtney Wedryk, Cody Rhodes, Courtney Rhodes, Morgan Workman, Scott Workman Jr., and Aaron Rhodes were all recipients of her warmth and affection. Each grandchild holds cherished memories of moments spent with their loving grandmother - moments that will forever remain etched in their hearts.

In addition to being a doting grandmother to her many grandchildren, Fleurette was a proud great-grandmother to Jacob Crane, Peyton Dieter and Jackson Dieter. Their laughter filled her heart with joy and watching them grow brought immeasurable happiness to her life.

Fleurette's kindness extended beyond her immediate family; she was also known as a kind aunt to numerous nieces and nephews. Her gentle spirit touched the lives of not only those closest to her but also anyone fortunate enough to have crossed paths with her.

Throughout her life journey, Fleurette exemplified the qualities of love, dedication, and kindness. Her touch brought comfort to those in need and her smile lit up every room she entered. Her legacy will forever resonate in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Fleurette wore many hats throughout her life, embracing each role with unwavering dedication and grace. She had a successful career as a member of the Carpenter Union. Fleurette also had enthusiasm for her cherished hobbies and interests. For over sixty years, she served as a devoted Board Member of the South Side All Breed Dog Training Club, sharing her knowledge and love for canines with fellow enthusiasts. Her membership in the Sheltie Club of Monee added another layer to her passion for dogs.

As we mourn the loss of Fleurette J. Workman, let us also celebrate the beautiful life she led. May her memory serve as a guiding light for us all, reminding us to embrace love, cherish our families, and offer a helping hand to those around us. Rest in peace, dear Fleurette. Your presence will be dearly missed, but your spirit will live on eternally within our hearts.
