Helen E. Kasanowski, 85, of Colchester, beloved wife of the late Stanley Kasanowski, Sr., passed away peacefully on Monday, July 21, 2014 at her home. Born in Norwood, MA to the late Michael and Marcella (Buja) Karpicus, she was raised in Worcester, MA and lived most of her life in Suffield before moving to Colchester to be closer to her grandchildren. Helen spent her career as a banker, including successfully managing a mortgage department for many years. Upon retirement, she had been the Registrar for the Suffield Academy. Helen was an active member of Sacred Heart Church in Suffield where she served as a Eucharistic minister and past president of the Women's Guild. She was an avid Boston Red Sox fan and enjoyed reading, but her true passion was her family, especially her grandchildren. She is survived by her sons Stanley Kasanowski, Jr. of Glastonbury and David Kasanowski and Eileen Flannery of Windsor; her daughters Susan Schroeder and her husband Mark of Colchester and Alane Kasanowski of St. Petersburg, FL; her grandchildren, Terence, Marcella and Ellen Schroeder, and Sawyer Kasanowski. Besides her husband and parents, she was predeceased by her brothers, Michael, John and Vincent Karpicus, and her sisters Edwina Ginkus and Nellie Nosek. The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Home Care staff who provided compassionate care to Helen. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 12:30 PM Friday, July 25 at the Sacred Heart Church, 446 Mountain Rd, Suffield. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. Her family will receive friends prior to the service on Friday, from 11 AM to 12 PM at the Nicholson & Carmon Funeral Home, 443 East St, Suffield.
