Genevieve Mary (Krawczyk) Danko

Genevieve Mary (Krawczyk) Danko, 99, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at the Maples Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Wrentham, MA. She was the beloved wife of the late Peter J. Danko who died in 1978.
Born on March 25, 1921 in Woonsocket, RI, she was the daughter of the late Steven Krawczyk and the late Mary (Majder) Krawczyk.
Genevieve made her home for many years in Woonsocket where she raised her family and helped out at the family bakery, Danko's Bakery, in Woonsocket. Genevieve also worked for many years as an assembler for Burnes of Boston before retiring in 1976. Genevieve moved to Attleboro, MA, in 1991 to be closer to her family.
Genevieve was fondly known by most as Babcia. She enjoyed making pierogies and was the best pierogi pincher around. Genevieve enjoyed reading, puzzles, playing cards, and more than anything, spending time with her cherished family. She was the heart and soul of the family.
She was the loving mother of Barbara A. Cavedon and her husband, Roderick R. Cavedon, of North Attleboro, MA, and the late John S. Danko and his wife, Suzanne A. (St. Germaine) Danko of North Attleboro. She was the proud and adoring grandmother of six grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren. Genevieve was predeceased by her siblings: Henry Krawczyk, Joseph Krawczyk, Francis Krawczyk, Louise Krawczyk, and Steven Krawczyk.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Maples Rehabilitation and Nursing Center for their care and compassion shown to Genevieve over the last four years.

To Gen's family, so sorry for your loss. I cared for Gen for several years at the Maples. Actually, she cared for herself, as she was one of the most vibrant and active residents on the unit. Always dressed in style and on top of all that was going on in the world. I loved talking with her. I can only smile when I think of her. She was one of my supporters when I had one of my books published. Prayers to the family. God Bless.
