Violet Mackiewicz

May 15, 1931April 30, 2021

Violet Mackiewicz, 89, passed peacefully on April 30th with her loving family by her side. Violet was born in Sunderland, England on May 15th, 1931 to the late James and Sarah Bailey. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Stanley Mackiewicz of Poland, whom she met and married in England. With their adventurous spirit, they travelled to the United States aboard the Queen Mary arriving in New York on March 11th, 1954. They settled in New Britain where they resided for many years. A hardworking mother and wife, she worked at Emhart, Colt Firearms and in her retirement enjoyed working with children at Edna C. Stevens Elementary School in Cromwell. She will be greatly missed by her son Stanley Mackiewicz and wife Susan of Cromwell; daughter Ann Choinski of New Britain; and grandchildren, Robert Choinski and wife Sylvia; Stacey Krzykowski and husband Sean; Kenneth Mackiewicz and fiancé Carina; and Samantha Mackiewicz and fiancé Lino. She was blessed with five great grandchildren, Elena, Owen, Caitlyn, Krystian and Hannah. Violet was a fiercely independent woman with a kind and caring heart. Her sense of humor brought joy and many laughs to her family and friends. Always fondly remembering her English roots, she enjoyed gardening and roses, collecting antique bells and spoons, and indulging in fish and chips. She never turned down sweet treats, her favorite being fudge striped cookies and donuts, always paired with a coffee. Above all else, Violet found her joy in spending time with her family, especially her cherished grandchildren. She provided them with a sense of comfort, fun, and so much love. Per Violet’s wishes, a private family service will be held in her memory. Memorial donations may be made to the CT Humane Society.
