A well versed and an avid reader, she enjoyed traveling. A very talented and artistic person, one could see her handy work in her ceramics, embroidering, crocheting and other forms of art especially painting. Her gentle touch and soft spokeness will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Survivors in addition to her husband, Alexander, include her two daughters, Christine Rosengarten of Scarsdale, NY and Constance Gorzelany and her husband, Stan of Fairfield; four granddaughters, Dana Gorzelany-Mostak, Jennifer Gorzelany, Karen and Rachel Rosengarten; and her loving and faithful care giver, Lana Vasyluk; and numerous nieces and nephews.
