  • Lucy my sis my heart is broken I miss you so much it has been very hard losing you. I’m going to miss texting you and talking to you when you felt like talking. Your were so strong for over two years battling this cancer and always telling me you still had the positive attitude. I know you aren’t in any pain and suffering anymore but it hurts so bad losing you. Love you sis forever and always❤️❤️

  • Love you, Aunt Lucy. You were a one in a million kind of person with the greatest smile. I’ll always remember your laid back nature and great attitude which you always had long before your battle with cancer and all the way throughout. We miss you greatly already.

  • My sweet beautiful big cousin, I love you and will forever miss you.

  • “Love you and I miss you.” (This is June’s grandson Robbie writing for her. She wanted me to write something for her but I think what she told me sums up everything. We love you and we miss you, Lucy.)

  • Aunt Lucy was a big part of both my life and Catrina’s life growing up. She would regularly take care of me when my parents had to work, always making home-cooked meals, and ensuring I remained productive throughout the day. One of the many things I would look forward to every summer is dragging her outside before the sun was up just to check on how much the cucumbers grew overnight in her meticulous garden. Speaking of gardening, Uncle Steve would get the garden ready for her every spring, and Lucy would get straight to planting her prized cucumbers and tomatoes that she would often share amongst family and friends. Aside from gardening, she loved hosting quaint family BBQs and sitting outback on the big deck that Steve expanded for her. As for hobbies, Lucy loved surf fishing, taking the boat out with her husband, being outdoors, and attending our regular Stajkowski family gatherings. Lucy hated when I brought back my hermit crabs from the beach and released them in her house. She can be best described for that big cheesy smile, her love for her family, and those world famous deviled eggs that we all know and love.

    The Stajkowski family was a big part of Lucy’s life. For every holiday, birthday, graduation, housewarming, funeral, and wedding, she was there to show her support. She loved the family’s customary Polish and Ukrainian cuisine, and somehow always embraced the classic Stajkowski family banter (Pop-pop and Ernie arguing over politics in the kitchen was the best kind). Lucy was such a bright light in the family, and we know this light will continue to shine from above. In her final year, Lucy vacationed with her husband, welcomed a new German Shepherd puppy into the family, and remained as optimistic as she possibly could regarding the state of her condition. Her husband, Steve, was by her side for every appointment and procedure, and worked very hard to ensure she was as comfortable as she could possibly be. Lucy, we will all miss you very much, and your memory will continue to fill the hearts of everyone that had the pleasure of knowing you.

  • So sorry for your loss. Sometimes there are no words 😶

  • “WE LOVE TODAY”
    We thought of you with love today, but this is nothing new,
    We thought of you yesterday and the days before that too,
    We think of you in silence and often speak your name,
    All we have now are our memories, and your picture in a frame.
    It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone.
    A part of us went with you, the day God took you home.
    I Love You Babe! My World is in chaos, so help me out now and then. Missing You!

  • It’s hard to believe that someone so full of life, love, and happiness is gone. Rest in peace Lucy. You were an absolutely amazing person with a heart of gold the memory of you will forever be in our hearts. Steve and Donny words can’t express how sorry I am about the loss of your wife and your mother.

  • We will always remember your laughter and big smile. It was apparent to everyone how in love you & Steve were.
    Steve, We hope all the beautiful memories you built over the years will bring you some comfort.

  • So sorry for your loss, Steve and family, but so happy that you and Lucy were together all those years. I know you have lots of good memories to get you through tough times. RIP Lucy. You’re much loved and sorely missed.
