Ann J. (Kaliszewski) Chrostowski, 95, of the Marion section of Southington, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 24, 2020 at MidState Medical Center. She had been the loving wife of the late John Peter Chrostowski for nearly 50 years.
Ann was born in Waterbury, CT on February 16, 1925 to the late WladysÅ‚aw and Genowefa (Florkoski) Kaliszewski.
After graduating from Crosby High School, she began her career at Waterbury Companies employed as a payroll officer for many years.
She continued in that field intermittently with various firms after she and her husband John started to raise a family. She enjoyed traveling to explore U.S. and International locations and being with her grandchildren. Ann was a parishioner at the Immaculate Conception Church in Southington for 65 years. She will be remembered for her membership and participation in the Immaculata and Rosary Societies. Ann was a long-time member of the Polish National Alliance Lodge 684. For many years she enjoyed participating in U.S., CT and local elections as an election day poll worker.
She is survived by her two daughters, Diane C. Koplewski (Andrzej) of Sarasota, FL and Mary Armetta (Philip) of Kensington; five grandchildren (Monica Rogan, Julia Sheaffer, Alexia Koplewski, Peter Armetta, and Kirsten Armetta), and four great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband John, she was predeceased by four siblings Mary, Carl, Stanley, and Frank Kaliszewski.
Ann’s grandchildren will cherish their memories with her, along with the recipes she shared for “Grandma’s Meatballs” and “Grandma Cookies” which are already favorites with all four great-grandchildren.
Ann avidly participated in and supported the daily televised Masses via Office of Radio and Television. Donations in Ann's memory may be made to: Celebration of the Eucharist Daily Mass, Office of Radio and Television, 15 Peach Orchard Rd, Prospect, CT 06716.
