Bernice "Bronia" Gruszka (nee Dziedzinski)
1937-2017 Honorary President of the Polish Singers Alliance of America.
It is with sadness that we acknowledge the death of Bernice Gruszka on September 21, 2017. A life-long singer in a number of choirs beginning in elementary school, she sang with Paderewski Choral Society #282 for 43 years and continued her singing with Marcella Kochanska Sembrich Choir #321, where she participated in its first place award in the Female category at the 51st International Convention Competition in Philadelphia this past May. Bernice served as choir president and served four terms as President of the Central Administration of the Polish Singers Alliance of America, where she oversaw the updating of the By-Laws and its headquarter move to the Polish Cultural Foundation in Clark, NJ, prior to its move to District IX. She was instrumental in the completion of the PSAA history book. An honorary member since 1986, she also was named as an Honorary President of the organization. She was active in various civic, religious and community organizations in the Philadelphia area. She has been decorated by the Stowarszyszenie Weteranii Armiji Polskiej, the Polski Zwiazek Chorow i Okiestr, and by the Polish Government's Cavalier's Cross of the Order of Merit. She is survived by two children, Edward and Mark, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
