Obituary of Krystyna Boryczewski
Krystyna Boryczewski, loving mother, sister, aunt and friend passed away peacefully in her home with her daughters Julie and Michele and her beloved Gidget by her side on Sunday morning, November 8th. She was 79 years old. Born in Kreszow, Poland in 1941 to the late Stefan and Rozalia Jankiewicz, she was one of five children. During World War II, as a young child, Krystyna and her family were taken prisoner to the Nazi war camp, Dachau. It was there that Krystyna spent some of her childhood until 1945 when the camp was liberated by American soldiers. In 1951, after her family was sponsored by St.Vincent dePaul Society, Krystyna and her family immigrated to the United States, living in Wallington and eventually settling in Parsippany, NJ in 1973 to raise her family.
Krystyna is predeceased by her parents Stefan and Rozalia Jankiewicz, her sister Danutia Jankiewicz and her only son Martin (Marty) who was killed in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Krystyna enjoyed a career in office administration for Saint Rose of Lima Church in East Hanover, Saint Elizabeth University in Florham Park and the Livingston Police Department as a Police Matron. Being the most ardent fan of her son Marty's sports, Krystyna spent her weekends travelling to soccer and baseball games and hosting breakfasts for Marty's teams prior to the games. If she wasn't home or at work, you could be sure to find her on the sidelines of a baseball or soccer field cheering on Marty and his team. A passionate traveler and proud naturalized citizen, Krystyna spent her summers travelling with her family across the country by RV, instilling in her children all the beauty, adventure and blessings this great, land of the free had to offer.
Krystyna is survived by her daughter Julia Boryczewski and her partner Kevin Ryan; her daughter Michele Boryczewski and son-in-law John Lasiw; her siblings Jolanta Geisel, Zbigniew Jankiewicz and his wife Pamela, Martin Jankiewicz and his wife Sharon: her nieces and nephews, Carolyn, Steven, Sasha and Sara; her most precious Gidget and countless extended family and friends who will miss her dearly.
The most beautiful smile adorns Krystyna's face once again and love and happiness fill her heart for eternity as she is reunited with her son Marty in Heaven.
