Family of woman, 91, who froze to death sues retirement home
February 6, 2013 (MCHENRY, Ill.) -- The family of a 91-year old woman who froze to death outside a suburban retirement community filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
Genevieve Klimczak died in 2012 at McHenry Villa in suburban McHenry.
The Alzheimer's patient walked out of a self-locking door and she could not get back in, according to her family.
Her body was found the next morning.
"She will be dearly missing by a lot of people. We just never thought that it would end this way," her nephew Donald Lorenz said.
The lawsuit named McHenry Villa and a caregiver service called "Home Instead".
They have not yet commented about the lawsuit.
