Lorene Golubski Chambers of Kansas City, Kansas passed away on November 17, 2022 

Lorene was born in 1925 to Florian and Helen (Jaster) Dombroski in Pulaskifield, Missouri. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Eugene and Lawrence and triplets, Jacobus, Helena and John who with their mother died shortly after childbirth in 1930. 

Her Father died in November of 1941 but the children grew up on their farm in Pulaskifield during the Great Depression milking their three cows and with the support from family and friends. 

Mom would tell stories of when neighbors would come to the Dombroski house, move the furniture and with neighbors playing guitars and washboards would dance all night. 

Mom loved music and when brother Gene and she would dance a polka it was fast and furious and you were wise to just get out of the way. The popular dance hall however was Yonkerville about five miles from home. Mom would also have stories of the number of people who would cram into a model T and head to Younkerville on weekends, your were never sure if the vehicle would make it there or back! At Younkerville you would hear live music or the juke box playing Hank Williams and other country artists of the day. 

Mom lost her brother Lawrence known as Oscar shortly after his return from World War II in a car accident 

Lorene married Richard Golubski in 1946 and they moved to Kansas city to find work. Lorene had a number of jobs in Kansas city but worked the longest at the Sealright company in the Fairfax district with a number of other Polish relatives. Her two sons also worked there for periods of time. 

Besides dancing, Lorene enjoyed have a "coolie" or a Highball or a glass of "Morgan" David wine, making rice bags, fishing and playing Polish poker. Her favorite game was "Spit in the ocean" 

Her husband Richard died in 1967 and her two sons would cause her many a sleepless night, but all of her sons friends were always welcomed at Mrs. Golubski's house. 

Lorene married Bud Chambers in 1972 and she found another love, traveling the country in a Winnebago. She and Bud met many friends on their travels, and used their metal detectors to search for treasures. All of their trips would include a stop at a casino. 

Mom and Bud moved to Monett, Missouri shortly after retirement to be close to her brother Gene and other relatives in nearby Pulaskifield. Mom loved all animals, and could barely watch killing ducks with her sister-in-law, Clara, but it was necessary to make duck blood soup(Czarnina) a Polish favorite. Clara would say, "Oh c'mon Sally, they're just ducks!" 

Surviving are her sons, Richard and wife Bobbie, Lawrence and wife Virginia, grandchildren Ali Lough(Jonas), Richard "Caz" Golubski (Jennifer), Adam Golubski(Lauren), Emily Beecher(James) and ten great grandchildren. She also leaves many nieces and nephews, from the Golubski, Dombroski, Jaster, and Bilski families.
