Florence T. Sadowski

Florence T. Sadowski, 87, of Grafton, passed away Monday, March 17, 2014, in her home, following a lengthy illness. She was born July 26, 1926 in Elyria and was a lifelong Grafton resident.

She was a long time member of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Grafton. She was a 1944 graduate of Grafton High School and was the secretary of her class. Mrs. Sadowski worked at the former Worthington Ball in Elyria and retired after 25 years with the Midview School District, retiring from Belden School. Her hobbies included playing Bingo, the lottery, poker and the Cleveland Indians. She loved Ardie Kyer’s perch dinners.

She is survived by her daughter, Dianne Myers of Huron; sons, Steve Sadowski of Lodi, Mike Sadowski, Joe Sadowski and Larry Sadowski, all of Grafton. Survivors also include 11 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and dear friends, Regina Davies and Ginny Wolf.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Steven Sadowski in 1979; grandson, Christopher Sadowski; and her parents, Stace and Nellie Kubuski.

In honoring her wishes, there will be no visitation. Family and friends are invited to attend a graveside service Wednesday, March 19, 2014, in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Grafton, at 11 A.M. The Reverend John Seabold, Pastor of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church, will officiate.

In memory of Florence, the family has requested that everyone buy a $5 scratch-off lottery ticket and scratch them off at 2 P.M. on Wednesday.

Arrangements were handled by the Blackburn-Duke Funeral Home, 1021 Main St., Grafton.

    I remember Mrs. Sadowski from Belden School. She was always so sweet to all of us. God Bless Her :-)

    Flo was my neighbor for many years. I will never forget when she would sit out in her lawn chair to catch some rays before heading in for her shows. Not to mention her world famous chicken paprikash, and having Lu’s Pizza as we watched her scream and shake her fist at the TV because the Cleveland Indians (or some other sports team) made a stupid play. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten. To the family I pray for your comfort during this difficult time.

    Although I did not know Mrs. Sadowski, her description seems to match my Mom who was called home at 87 years old a number of years ago. We have been blessed by the joy and kindheartedness of her son, Larry, who has watched our children grow with daily postal delivery as well as a wave and a smile! May you and your family be comforted by our Lord and His Mother and ours, Mary. And may your Mom be with the Lord this day in paradise.
    With deep sympathy,
    The Gonzalez Family
