Wanda “Babci” Ejdys, 82 of Unionville, CT died peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on September 2, 2019, after a brief and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She was the daughter of the late Jean and Felicie Moryl of France. Wanda was born December 2, 1936 in Biskupice, Poland, moved to Paris, France at the age of nine, and continued her education by attending the University of Cambridge in England to pursue her degree in English and study business. In 1959, she met her beloved husband Chester in a church choir in Paris. Her honeymoon was a trip to the USA where she lived the past 59 years. Before moving to CT in 1969, she worked on Wall Street and lived in Brooklyn and Binghamton, NY. Prior to her retirement in 2002, she was an accounting manager for TRUMPF Inc. in Farmington, CT for over 30 years. Wanda was a parishioner of Holy Cross Church, a member of the Polonia Paderewski Choir and New Britain Ladies Guild. She enjoyed cooking, entertaining, music, dancing and theater, where she was a member of the Goodspeed Opera House for over 30 years. She also loved to spend time with her family, especially her grandchildren who will miss their “Babci” very much. She attended every soccer game, regatta, concert and school ceremonies. She exposed them to culture, food and etiquette. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she was a very active part of their life. Wanda loved to travel throughout the USA and Europe with her brother Richard and his wife Alice. Her passion was cooking and entertaining. She had a refined taste in food and was known for her legendary dinner presentations. Wanda was a steward of her faith and volunteered her time to Holy Cross Church and Sacred Heart Church bazaars, spending countless hours making potato pancakes and babkas. She also volunteered her time to the Polish community and translated for them to help them chose affordable healthcare. Finally, she continued with her love of accounting and prepared taxes for family and friends. Wanda was predeceased by her husband of 44 years, Chester Ejdys. She leaves her devoted daughter, Christine Lagosz and her husband John of Farmington; her beloved son Daniel Ejdys and his wife Gretchen of Cape Coral, FL as well as six grandchildren she adored, Christopher, Gregory and Natalie Lagosz; Madeleine, Timothy and Rush Ejdys. She is also survived by her loving brother Richard Moryl and wife Alice, niece and nephew, Ingrid and Philippe and several cousins. Wanda was also grateful for her many, many friends, especially her “sisters” Viviane, Jadzia, Roma, Wanda and Sheryle. Thank you for all those friends who have made daily visits, bringing positive energy, prayers and delicious food and special drinks which made her illness a little more comfortable.

My dear walking partner,
How I will miss our riveting conversations about life, politics, friends, and family, and then come to the conclusion that we were just perfect and the rest of the world was messed up. What a great friend you were, to wake up early to walk with me and when you over slept you made me promise to wake you, and then I would scold you like a teenager about staying out so late the night before. You had such active social life, which you said kept you young and it did! I feel blessed to have learned about your wonderful life. I wish you could have written your memoirs, what a book it would have made. You were a woman of grace and elegance , but your love and kindness will forever inspire me. Rest In Peace my friend.

Oh, my dear Wanda, how do I even try to say good-bye to you! You have so enriched my life. . . . adopting me into your family. And, what a warm and wonderful family that is . . . one that you are so proud of and one which made you so happy and proud. I think of your boundless energy and how you welcomed everyone with your special hospitality and wonderful culinary expertise. I think of all the laughs we shared . . . the trips to the Goodspeed, the movies we didn't understand, the stories we exchanged. I know that you will continue to steer the ship . . . in more subtle ways . . . for all those who you loved and who loved you.
