Obituary for Malda Raczkowski

Malda (Sis) Durdan Raczkowski, 83, of Tolland, left this world on April 30, 2020 to join her husband of forty years, Leonard Raczkowski. She was born on December 16, 1936 to the late Josephine Soucier and John Durdan. Sis will always remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. One of Sis’ greatest attributes was her love for others. She taught by example what it is to be a compassionate and loving person. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Leonard Raczkowski, her brother, Robert Soucier, brother-in-law, Robert Raczkowski and wide, Shirley and sister-in-law, Julie Raczkowski. She is survived by her daughter, Laurie
Lecrenier of Wethersfield; her son, Michael Raczkowski of Tolland; her daughter, Lisa DelMastro and husband George of Rocky Hill and her daughter, Lynn Crane of Ellington. She also leaves behind her greatest joys, her four grandchildren, Evan Raczkowski, Jordan and Joey DelMastro and Emma Crane as well as her loving brothers and sisters, Charles Durdan (Roberta) of Tolland, John Durdan (Cathy) of Avon, James Durdan (Suzanne) of Mansfield, Edward Soucier (Linda) of Vernon, Sally Gorden (Sonny) of Ellington and Alice Burnell (Layton) of Stafford, as well as sister-in-law, Beverly Jagodowski (Eddie) and brother-in-law, Donald Raczkowski and many other friends and family members, including Madeline Page, one of her oldest friends, who will always hold a special place in her heart. Sis loved nothing more than being surrounded by her family and friends and always had a lending hand or a listening ear. She was a devout Catholic and was a member of St. Matthew’s Church for many years. She spent her final days under the care of Maple View Manor in Rocky Hill. A special thank you to the staff at Maple View Manor, especially, our special friend, Ovita, who never judged and always looked after her so caringly. In lieu of flowers, please honor Sis by performing a simple act of kindness or paying it forward and making someone smile. Due to Covid19, arrangements will be private with a memorial service to follow at a later date.
