Tuesday, January 2, 2018I am deeply saddened by the loss of Mary Lechus, or as I called her, Nashi. She was my great aunt, and my family spent just about every major holiday -- Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter -- at her home. This was one of the most important parts of my childhood, where I had amazing food and formed important connections with all of my family. Besides her special turkey stuffing, I especially enjoyed her red velvet cake. In addition, Nashi was always there for us, always giving, and always helping out, whether it was taking care of my dog Patches when we went on vacation or knitting me some amazing sweaters. Nashi grew up in the Great Depression and went through hardships in her life but I never once saw her complain, and she was always in good spirits. Her Catholic faith was very important to her, and she was very active in her church community. It was through this community that she provided us with many years of delicious pierogies! Mary was an incredible woman who deeply touched my life and the lives of countless others, and I hope that she finds peace in her Heavenly home.

Sunday, December 31, 2017I met Mary at Elim Park when visiting my mom Edna. They were tablemates. Always a smile and a great attitude. What a wonderful lady! Will miss her.

Saturday, December 30, 2017Aunt Mimi was my Great Aunt. I was lucky enough to grow up spending my holidays in the warmth of her home with Uncle Peter; a comfortable respite from the cold and harsh winters of Connecticut. She taught me to be selfless through her example of always taking car of others and never asking for anything in return. She was generous beyond belief and it was a pleasure to be around her. I think that made her happy. I will never forget how she always encouraged me to not only do well in school, but to excel and achieve more than I even though possible. Her faith in me and leading by example are part of the reason I am the person I am today. And so, her goodness will live on through me and all the other nieces and nephews she has influenced over the years. I will miss her dearly and Christmas will always remind me of her. Love, Kevin

Friday, December 29, 2017It is very sad to know Aunt Mimi is gone now. The countless Christmases and Easters we spent at her house are the basis for most of my childhood holiday memories. Coming into the house and seeing her in the kitchen preparing food were always a staple and are seared into my memory. She was always so good to her family, including us, her great-nieces and -nephews. It is amazing she lived, and mostly well, to 94. She will be greatly missed!
