Lucille L. Krawczyk

Lucille L. (Schattel) Krawczyk, 85, died unexpectedly Friday, May 3, 2013, at Newton Wellesley Hospital in Newton. She was the wife of the late Capt. Edward C. Krawczyk, U.S. Air Force. Born in Three Rivers, Texas, Lucy was raised and educated in Texas. She was a longtime resident of Riverside, R.I., and had been a resident of Stoughton, living with her daughter Janet, for the past eight years. After raising her family, Lucy worked as a secretary for several businesses, including Slepkow & Slepkow in Riverside, R.I. She retired many years ago. She was a Gold Star wife, a longtime communicant of St. Brendans Church in Riverside, R.I., and was a member of their church choir for many years. Lucy was the sweetest person one could ever know. Though she lived in New England most of her life her heart was always with Texas. Her life with her husband Edward was cut short by the Vietnam War. On May 5, 1968, Capt. Edward C. Krawczyk was killed in Vietnam. Lucy raised her five children, worked and managed the household and found time to sew clothing, crotchet, garden, read, travel and sing in the church choir. Lucys courage, strength and commitment to her children is something that will never be forgotten. In 2005, Lucy was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and though she slowly lost her memory she retained her kindness, sense of humor, joy in singing and enjoyment of her 16 grandchildren.
