Tribute & Message From The Family

Krystyna (Rembecka) Kondracki, 79, of New Britain, died peacefully on Monday, April 2, 2018 with her son, daughters-in-law and grandchildren by her side. She was born in Poland and attended school to become a clothing designer. While in Poland, she worked as a tailor, creating beautiful dresses and custom-made suits. She loved to tell her family the story of when she came to the U.S. in 1961 with $5.00 in a suitcase. She began living the American dream working for Corbin-Russwin and simultaneously, her motivation, will and determination showed her true entrepreneurship in the establishment of a very successful catering business which she owned and operated for over 35 years. Krystyna was a woman who took pride in her work. She loved cooking and made sure that everyone was always fed before herself and no one ever went away hungry. She was a prominent business woman in the New Britain community and donated her time and food to those in need. Her generosity and care toward others will be genuinely missed. She is survived by her son Daniel and his wife, Ramona and their children Alex Cooper and Daniel Henry Kondracki, Jr, her daughter-in-law Liz and her children Ashley, Emily, Victoria, Isabella and Christopher Rebecki, her daughter Alice Kondracki and a great granddaughter, Regan Davidson. Krystyna was predeceased by her first husband, Casimir Rebecki, her second husband, Henry Kondracki and her son, Christopher Rebecki.

To the Kondracki Family, all of us at St Mary's Ukrainian Orthodox Church were so saddened to learn of Krystyna's death. She was a wonderful supporter of our bread project and tag sales. She always did a great job in catering delicious dinners. We all will miss her. May God grant her soul rest. Memory Eternal!
