LUCY ANN (DELSON) DOMBROWSKI
Age 85, of Batavia died peacefully Friday February 4, 2011 at the home of her daughter in Green Bay, WI where she has resided since June 2010. She was born July 26, 1925 in Buffalo, daughter of the late Anthony and Mary (Capella) Delson; she was married for 36 years to Edward Dombrowski who preceded her in death in 1985. She was a loving and devoted sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Lucy was a graduate of Batavia High School class of 1942. She was a friendly face at Marine Midland Bank for 42 years as head note teller. Lucy was a member of Ascension Parish (former St. Anthony's) their Altar & Rosary Society and many other school and church activities where counting and keeping track of money was always her main responsibility. She was a member of the Paolo Busti Cultural Foundation. Lucy loved reading Danielle Steele novels, playing cards on Friday nights with her brother Tony, daily phone conversations with her brother David, weekly shopping trips to Buffalo and Rochester with her sister Babe and frequent trips to the casino. Traveling with her daughter and family was one of her favorite things to do, and she was able to take advantage of airline pass travel to see so much of this country and abroad that would have never been possible without them. Nothing compared to the joy that she found in becoming a grandmother to her "Numero Uno" Jenni and her "Favorite Redhead" A.J. Later the love of her life became her great-granddaughter Ella. She would call Grandma Lucy and always say "Wake up sleepy head!" and Lucy would smile from ear to ear. She was a devoted mother to her only child Mary Jo, and would make any sacrifice for her that she could. Towards the later part of her life their roles were reversed and she was cared for and loved just as she did. Lucy was one of the best people you could ever know. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. She made this world a better place and she will be truly missed.
Surviving is her beloved daughter Mary Jo Piskor and her wonderful son-in-law Thomas Piskor of Green Bay, WI and their children and spouses Jennifer (Jason) Dettman of Huntsville, AL; Andrew (Natalie) Piskor of Chicago, IL and great-granddaughter Ella Marie Dettman. Brothers Anthony & David Delson and sister Frances "Babe" Gentile all of Batavia along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and very dear friends and neighbors.
