Anne T. Sienko, of Middletown, beloved wife of the late Bruce F. Sienko, died peacefully on Sunday, July 15, 2012.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was born in New Britain to the late John and Helen (Czerwinska) Trzcinski, raised in New Haven and then resided all of her adult life in Middletown. Anne worked at Remington Rand prior to her marriage, then chose to work at home as a dedicated wife and mother. She was a devoted parishioner of St. Mary of Czestochowa Church and an active member of the Senior Club and Ladies Guild. She spent many hours making pierogis and working at the various church festivals and events. In earlier years, Anne was a tireless fundraiser for charities like the Red Feather and Community Chest going door to door to solicit contributions. She was an avid fan of the University of Notre Dame academics and athletics, but also cheered on the UConn teams with great enthusiasm.
Anne leaves her loving children: Robert (Angela) of Farmington, William of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Susan of East Haddam, and a sister, Wanda Goclowski of East Haven. In addition, she leaves nine grandchildren and several great grandchildren along with many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by brothers William and Edward Sinski, sisters Sophie Herrmann, Bernice Tyburski, Virginia and Helen Trzcinski and her daughter-in-law, Judith Sienko. Anne will be sorely missed by her dearly loved dog, Tessa, and cat, Toby.
Her family extends a special thank you to Dr. Stephanie Rosener who was a compassionate, loving and skilled physician and friend in Anne's later years.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, July 20, at St. Mary of Czestochowa Church, 79 South Main St., in Middletown. Anne's family will receive friends at the Church beginning at noon to 1 p.m., prior to the Mass. Anne's great wish was that family and friends share in the beautiful Mass and music of St. Mary of Czestochowa that she loved so much and that all would sing her Home. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery in Middletown.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to St. Mary of Czestochowa Church or School, 79 South Main St., Middletown, CT 06457.
