A 28-year-old teacher from the south suburbs died at Wrigley Field over the weekend after choking on food.

The family of Maureen Oleskiewicz says they are devastated by the accident.

Maureen was at Wrigley Field with her younger brother Martin for Sunday’s Cubs game.

Martin told the Chicago Tribune Maureen simply slumped over without showing any signs of distress.

Good Samaritans who rushed to help performed chest compressions, but did not realize she was choking.

She was rushed to the hospital but died two days later.

    A beautiful young woman. Maureen Oleskiewicz was a leader during her college career at Bradley University. She distinguished herself in service to the Teacher Education Department through research in area high schools, participation in the planning and execution of events for the 100th Anniversary of Teacher Education and participation in teacher education demonstrations for national accreditation. Maureen could charm you with her smile to help professors get projects completed. I have often thought of her since she graduated. I will remember her more now in er new playing field with her Lord and those of her family and friends who have preceded her in death. Dr. Patricia Chrosniak, Associate Professor, Bradley University
