Obituary

After a long illness, Stefania Pokora (nee Morawsky), passed away peacefully at the Glastonbury Health Care Center on Friday April 10, 2020. She was 91 years old. Stefania was born on February 25, 1929 in the village of Nosiv, Western Ukraine, where she spent her childhood. The end of World War II found Stefania and her family in a Displaced Persons Camp in Bavaria Germany. She met and married her husband Stefan in Erlangen, while still in Germany. In 1950, they were sponsored for immigration to the United States and set off to New York City to start a new life.
From 1952 to 1985 they lived in Passaic and later Clifton, New Jersey. While in New Jersey, Stefania was a member of St. Nicholas Church in Passaic, and an active member of the Ukrainian National Women’s League Association. She was employed at Botany Mills and later at Apex Electronics Company.
In 1985, her husband retired, and they decided to move to Glastonbury, CT to be closer to some of their grandchildren. During this time, she was a parishioner at St. Michael the Archangel Church in Hartford, and an active member of the Seniors Club associated with the Church. As the years made travel more difficult, she joined the parish of St. John the Baptist in Glastonbury, CT. She enjoyed embroidery, reading, and cooking for her family.
Stefania was predeceased by her husband Stefan, and siblings Danylo, Levko, Teofil, and Maria. She is survived by her sons Bohdan (with wife Anna), and Alexander (with wife Vera), grandchildren Roman, Andrew (with wife Vera), and Mark (with wife Jana), and great grandchildren Lucas, Sofie and Leon. A private service was held, and Stefania was interred on April 15, 2020 at St. Michaels’ Cemetery in Glastonbury, CT.

The Family wishes to express our gratitude to the staff of the Glastonbury Health Care Center for taking such good care of Stefania over the past five years.

I was most impressed of how humble she was. On two seperate occasions I noticed how far she walked on Main St. ,in Glastonbury an she said it was because they had a bench to rest on,in the centter of town.
