Hudson – Mary H. (Romaneski) Haczynski, 103, died Wednesday March 30, 2011, at Marlborough Hospital. She was the beloved wife of 60-plus years to the late Matthew V. Haczynski, who died in 1986.
The daughter of the late Anthony and Regina (Szwabowska) Romaneski, she was born and raised in Otter River in the town of Templeton, where she attended local schools and graduated from the high school. She resided in Hudson most of her life after moving from Otter River at age 17.
Mrs. Haczynski was employed by the former Ascutney Shoe Company in Hudson for many years as a fancy stitcher. Prior to that, she was a talented seamstress and hat designer. Family and friends will always remember her for the excellent cook she was, especially all the traditional Polish dishes and breads she prepared and shared with them. She was a member of Saint Michael's Parish in Hudson.
She is survived by her son, Ralph Edward Haczynski of Manhattan, N.Y.; her daughter, Eleanor Ruth Ringland and her husband, David, of Stow; her sister, Janet Marie Iadarola of Dennis; and five grandchildren, Karen Rice, Ellen Concannon, Susan Luz, Julie Hart and David Ringland II. She is also survived by eight great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was the mother of the late Matthew T. Hazcynski, who died in 2008, and sister of the late Harry Romaneski, Stella E. Tracy and Anna Iadarola.
A funeral Mass was celebrated April 2 from Saint Michael's Church, with burial at Saint Michael's Cemetery. The Tighe- Hamilton Funeral Home of Hudson assisted with arrangements. For online condolences, visit www.tighehamilton.com.
