Jean Politowski, 89, passed away Friday, November 29, 2013. She was born July 23, 1924 in Strzyzow, Poland. She was the daughter of Walenty and Salomeja (Pekosz) Szczygiel. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Politowski, a sister and brother in Poland. She is survived by her daughter Mary Jean Thielman and son-in-law Robert Thielman of Southington, with whom she resided for 27 years, a sister and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in Poland.
Jean lived a long and courageous life. She was a survivor of WWII. As a teenager, she was taken by the Nazi troops from her home in Poland and transported to Germany to work as a Prisoner of Agricultural Work. She met her husband, Joseph, a Polish Army soldier, at a POW refugee camp, where he was stationed after liberation by the Allied troops. After their release, Jean and her husband emmigrated to New Jersey. That is where she achieved one of her most prized achievements, becoming an American citizen. Her family wishes to thank all their friends and extended family for the kindness shown to Jean during her lifetime. Particular gratitude is given to her Evercare Nurse Practitioner Mae, and all the staff at The Andrews House HealthCare Center, where she was given exceptional care, comfort and dignity during the last year of her life. Donations can be made in her memory to the Meditation Garden at Andrews House Healthcare, 66 Clinic Drive, New Britain, CT. The New Britain Memorial Donald D. Sagarino Funeral Home has been entrusted. There are no calling hours. A memorial service will take place at a future date. Thank you for visiting and for your online condolences.
