Estelle Janik Mitchell of Rockville, CT passed peacefully with her family by her side on May 27, 2019 at age 97. She was born on November 29, 1921 in Chicopee, MA, the 8th child of Anna and John Janik. After graduating Rockville High School, Estelle began working at National Print where she forged lifelong friendships with twelve other young women. In 1942, Estelle married William Mitchell, son of Stella and Lester Mitchell and became an integral part of the running of Mitchell Farms, 1085 Hartford Turnpike, Rockville, CT. Estelle’s life was enriched as a parishioner of St. Bernard’s Church and as a member of St. Bernard’s Women’s guild. She found daily solace in prayer and trusted in the Lord. Estelle will be deeply missed by her five daughters Jany Allen, Christine Cohun, Suzanne Foley, Melanie Poehnert, and Mary-ann Ducharme; sons-in-law Jack Cohun, Timothy Foley, Robert Poehner, and Neil Ducharme; sister-in-law Judith Hany; 12 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Estelle was predeceased by William, her husband of sixty-two years; seven siblings, Clara Suchecki, Joseph Janik, Stanley Janik, Jane Zwierok, Max Janik, Rudolph Janik, and Eugene Janik; granddaughter, Jennifer Cohun; and son-in-law Richard Allen. Relatives and friends may join the family on Friday, May 31, 2019 between 4pm-7pm at the Burke-Fortin Funeral Home, 76 Prospect Street, Rockville, CT. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 10am at St. Bernard’s Church, 25 St. Bernard’s Terrace, Vernon, CT. Burial will follow at St. Bernard’s Cemetery in Vernon. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to St. Bernard’s Church, noting the Claravaux House in the memo line. For online condolences please visit
