Lois Zajac Obituary
Lois Zajac Died - Jun. 13, 2014 THOMPSON - Lois Zajac, 81, of Thompson, CT, died at home Friday, June 13, 2014 after a long illness with her family at her side. She leaves her husband and companion of 30 years, William Zajac of Thompson. She is survived by four children, David Adamuska of Lisbon, NH; Deborah Butts of Webster, MA; Dean Adamuska of Webster, MA; Donna Mahoney of Putnam, CT, 10 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. In addition she leaves two sisters, Barbara Palmer of Brookfield, WI and Pat Compton of Crestview, FL and longtime friend Alice Parker of N. Grosvenordale, CT. She grew up in Fiskdale, MA and worked as a switchboard operator before marrying and raising her four children in Thompson. She attended David Hale School of Nursing and graduated as an LPN in 1971. She worked at Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam for 13 years, much of that time in Maternity where she loved caring for babies and new mothers. She was often recognized around town by women who recognized her as "you were the nurse for my delivery." From Day Kimball she went on to work as office nurse for many years in the Doctor's offices of Dr. James Nicholson and Dr. Kevin Boucher. She retired in 1995 to her beloved Log Cabin in Thompson where she loved flowers and tinkering in her flower gardens and organizing family gatherings. Her most favorite times were those spent with family at the holidays and vacationing on Prince Edward Island. Her husband and family wish to extend special thanks to the many members of her home care team who's diligent and patient efforts have enabled her to remain at home through the many years of her illness. Thanks also to Sue Antonelli, RN and Hospice of NE CT and Dr. John Day.
