Leokadia Lukasiewicz née SulikowskiRitual recording
It is with heavy heart and enormous sadness, that we announce the sudden passing of my courageous mother Lucy, who quietly slipped away at Lakeshore General Hospital, Pointe-Claire, Quebec, at the age of 87.
She was beloved wife of fifty seven years to my father the late Mieczyslaw (Mike) (2010), devoted mother to my brother Tadeusz (Ted) (2012) and myself Irena Konstancja Witecki (Brampton, ON), cherished to her son-in-law, the late Andrzej Achilles Witecki (2018).
Lucy was born in Wyrka pow, Kostopol, Poland to Aleksander Sulikovski (1977) and Franciszka Sulikowski (née Bitner) (1996) after World War II. At the age of sixteen, she immigrated to Canada and would bring her parents and siblings to Canada with the help of her late brother-in-law Roman Balcerczyk.
She was a hardworking, caring and generous homemaker who loved to cook, bake, entertain and garden. She welcomed family and friends to drop by anytime. She adored and loved her godchildren : Teresa Slojewski (Toronto, ON) and the late Krystyna Rej (Wroclaw, Poland). She loved to take care of children and pets. Everyone was important and loved.
She will be greatly missed by her sisters : Stephanie Balcerczyk (Barrie, ON), Kazmiera Rej (Wroclaw, Poland), Irene Laporte (Repentigny, QC), Teresa Heitbohmer (Ron) (Lions Head, ON) and sisters in-law Mira Sulikowski (Lancaster, ON) and Josefa (Josephine) Slojewski (Toronto, ON) ; Her mother-in-law Konstancj Lukasiewicz (née Kuziomko) (1952) ; her father-in-law Josef Lukasiewicz (1973); Her brother Anthony Sulikowski (2006) her sister-in-law Janina (Janka) Hudziak (2019) ; Her Brothers-in-law Stefan Slojewski (1978), George Laporte (1996), Kazimierz Hudziak (2013), Roman Balcerczyk (Toronto, ON) and Wlader Rej (Wroclaw, Poland).
I would like to thank everyone who were in close contact and generous with their time to help her make life easier, especially Richard J Sztuder, Sabina Gabriel, Mary Gruchot, the CLSC West Island staff, le Selection West Island, doctors and nurses.
Lucy will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her immediate and extended families, friends, and neighbours in Canada, United States and Europe.
