Mildred Alice (Blaszko) Aukstolis, 93, longtime Wethersfield resident, loving wife to the late Benjamin Aukstolis, entered into her Heavenly reward, Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at Benchmark Senior Living, Hamden. Mildred was born July 19, 1926 and was raised in Thompsonville (Enfield), CT, daughter to the late Alexander and Agnes (Wenc) Blaszko. After graduating High School, she attended Hartford Hospital School of Nursing, and later earned a Bachelor’s degree at Central Connecticut State University. Mildred was a Registered Nurse serving in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps in WWII, and then worked 15 years as Head Nurse in Psychiatry at Hartford Hospital, and 17 years as a State of CT Hospital and Medical Care Division Nurse Consultant.

Mildred will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her niece and god child, Mary Helming, her husband Carlton, their son, Gregg, of Cheshire and daughter Delphine of Milford; niece Patricia Blaszko of Hillsdale, NJ and her children Kimberly and Matthew, of NJ; nephew Edmund Miarecki and his wife, Diane, of Edgewater, MD; niece Jean Aukstolis and nephew Leonard Aukstolis of South Windsor, niece Debbie Salas of East Hartford and nephew Stephen Aukstolis of Ellington, and other nieces and nephews ; friends Jean (and Gerry) Shea; long-time home aide with great thanks, Dao Vu, and late friend Gizelle. She was pre-deceased by her sister, Helen Miarecki (Edmund, husband), brother, Matthew Blaszko (Florence, wife), and nephew Matthew Blaszko, Jr. Mildred was a faithful communicant of Church of the Incarnation, Wethersfield. She served as Eucharistic Minister and was active in the women’s group. She enjoyed traveling internationally and loved dinners out and hosting family barbecues. She was loving and gracious to her family, two dogs, and others.
Special gratitude to Fr. Moran, Dr. Mullaney, Deb, APRN, Constellation Hospice especially Tricia, RN and Patti, the many Benchmark resident care assistants, nurses and staff who kindly cared for her, and especially helped us with last phone calls.

My dear Aunt Mildred was also my Godmother. She was incredibly kind and caring to my family and I. I loved her very much and had the honor of being one of her caretakers in her later years. She taught me the value of generosity and giving to others. She inspired me in other ways. She accomplished a great deal in her career as an RN in leadership positions and she even worked beyond retirement. She served in the US Army Nurse Corps. Her Catholic faith was very strong. She honored the Lord by attending Mass every day when she was able to, by being an active and beloved member of her Church of the Incarnation, and by being a Eucharistic Minister. She and Uncle "Dusty" Benjamin traveled to many countries together, and they enjoyed dinners out with family and giving barbecues at their home. Their siblings and spouses, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews were always deeply cared about by them and they enjoyed their company on many occasions and celebrations. We got the family together to celebrate her major birthdays, especially #90. She was able to stay in her beloved home, as she wished, until two years ago, thanks to the amazing care of her home helper, Dao, and friends such as Jean, Gerry, Gizelle and Angie. We know she had many other friends she socialized with and she even stayed active in the Hartford Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association for many years. Even in assisted living, her caretakers loved her. She was a kind, caring, loving woman who really practiced the fruits of the Spirit. We will all remember with a smile how she loved chocolates, cookies, ice cream sundaes at Friendlies, and seafood restaurants. She adored her dogs, Frosty and Sparky. Most of all, I will remember how she smiled when I visited her and how she told me she loved me. Without a doubt, she is celebrating in Heaven with Jesus and all her beloved family and friends who went before her. For that, I am happy for her and can celebrate her long life.

Love, Edmund and Diane
