WEBSTER — Aurore D. “Ora” (Tetreault) Ozaniak of Webster, was born September 21, 1938 during the historic hurricane of that year. She lost her long battle with Alzheimer’s on March 25, 2021. She is finally at peace and resting in the comfort of her Heavenly Father. She lived life always with a smile and enjoyed the love of family and friends.
She leaves her two daughters, Joanne Haggerty and her husband Kevin of Putnam, CT, and Janice Jankowski and her husband John “Yanek” of Dudley; her grandchildren whom she loved dearly and were very precious to her, Anne-Marie Barnett and her husband Brian of Dudley, John Jankowski of Dudley, and Alex Haggerty of Putnam, CT (she was a very proud grandmother and mimi); her brother, Theodore “Ted” Tetreault and his wife Mary of Southbridge, her sister, Jeannette Shippee of Killingly, CT, her brothers-in-law Adam Ozaniak of Webster and Richard Roy and his wife Ruth of Woodstock, CT, her sisters-in-law Karen Duquette of Putnam, Evelyn Preston of Putnam and Jeanette Girard of Putnam; and many nieces and nephews.
She was pre-deceased by her mother, Dorothy (Benoit) Tetreault and her father, Theodore Tetreault. She was married to Francis Roy of Grosvenordale, CT for 20 years until his death in 1980. She was then married to Stephen P. Ozaniak for 32 years until his passing in 2016.
Mrs. Ozaniak worked for many years at Bentley Shoe in Dudley, and then was a receptionist at Commerce Insurance Company in Webster until she retired.
Ora gave countless hours serving others in need and was always in church giving thanks for all her blessings and praying for others. If you were a family member or friend, you can rest assured that you had many prayers said for you. She loved family gatherings and getting together with friends.
She always loved angels and now has eternal rest with them. We have no doubt that she will be watching over all the family and friends that she held so close to her heart.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to “Laura’s Guardian Angels”, especially Michele Nelson, Gina Allain, and Ashley Decker, who took special care of her so she could enjoy her final years at home. She loved them dearly. The gentle compassion of the caregivers of Care Central VNA and Hospice in the last 6 weeks is also greatly appreciated.
Her funeral will be held Tuesday, March 30th, from Scanlon Funeral Service, 38 East Main Street, with a Mass at 10:00 AM in Saint Anthony of Padua Church, 24 Dudley Hill Road, Dudley. Burial will be in Saint Anthony Cemetery, Webster. Visiting hours will be held Monday, March 29th, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the funeral home. Current health guidelines will be in place and all are required to wear a mask. Donations in her name may be made to the Webster-Dudley Food Share, Inc., 4 Church St., Webster, MA 01570.
