It truly was a pleasure knowing Leokadia and her family while living as neighbors in South Holyoke (1970s).. Her welcoming graciousness, intellectual embrace of the world, community involvement, and love of her family are a few of the inspiring gifts Leokadia has given this world.

With my deepest sympathy to the CHILDREN and EXTENDED FAMILY of LEOKADIA ROWINSKI.
Among Polish Community, Leokadia Rowinski will be remembered for her deep patriotism to her native Poland, for nurturing Polish language, and preserving Polish culture and Polish traditions. The memory of her will be with us forever.
Spoczywaj w pokoju wiecznym.

To a truly wonderful corages and brave lady there.s another Angel in Heaven my condolences to the Rowinski Family

Pani Leokadia was one of my Saturday Polish School teachers at Mater Dolorosa, and a family freind. We spent a lot of time talking about World War II and Poland. For me, that turned into a professional interest, and today I spend lots of time teaching in Mrs. Rowinski's home town, Warsaw.

Deepest condolences to her kids and extended family.

Sursum corda...

I learned so much about your Mother in the obituary; (I know the passages you wrote). You even look like her, and inherit her goodness. She will come to you in dreams and always watch over you and your family. You were so good to her and will remain deeply connected.
Love, Lorna
