Dina K. Izak, of Brentwood Tennessee, passed over to be with the Lord on June 10, 2020 at the age of 51. She was born on November 11, 1968, in Petaluma, California to William Izak and Diane (Czosnyka) Black. She grew up in Chicago, Illinois and was a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign after which she received her teaching credentials from Indiana University in Bloomington.
Dina loved teaching/tutoring both primary and secondary level students. She found joy through simple pleasures; spending time with friends, researching family genealogy, cross stitching gifts for family and friends, and caring for pets and “critters” of all sorts. Dina was deeply spiritual and was a faithful Catholic throughout her life and attended St. Luke Catholic Church in Smyrna, TN. She was a kind and gentle soul who will be dearly missed by her family and her many caring friends.
Dina was preceded in death by her parents; Aunt Rosemary (Czosnyka) Dobrovitz; and Uncles: Rudy Dobrovitz and Charles Hollenbach. She is survived by her step mother Mary (Boklewski) Izak of Rockwall, TX; Sisters: Lisa and husband Stan Fore of Colleyville, TX; Christine and husband Sean Fields of Fate, TX; Jackie Blackmann of Chicago, IL; Aunts: Jeannine Chabanois of BarDeLuc, France; Irene Hollenbach of Elgin, IL; Uncle Edwin Boklewski of Bensenville, IL; Nephews: Will Fore, Dillon (Maudie) Fore, and Asher Fields; Niece Olivia Fields; and many cousins.
