Elizabeth Marie Sidorowicz, 93, of Windsor, beloved wife of the late Titus B. Sidorowicz, passed away Sunday, May 25, 2014, at the Life Care Center of West Bridgewater, Mass.

Elizabeth was born in Palmer, Kansas, on November 16, 1920, daughter of the late George Lecuyer, Jr. and Ida (Savoie) Lecuyer, and attended nursing school in Salina, Kansas.

After relocating to Santa Barbara, Calif., with a fellow nursing graduate in search of employment, Elizabeth met her future husband while he was serving in the Marine Corps during World War II.

The happy couple married in Westfield, Mass. on May 10, 1947, and after his discharge from the service, resided in East Hartford. The family later settled in Windsor where Elizabeth lived for over 65 years. Elizabeth worked for many years in Hartford as a Registered Nurse at the former McCook Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital.

She was proud of her profession and cared deeply for the generations of patients she encountered. Elizabeth was an active member of St. Gabriel's Church, volunteering with the prayer shawl ministry and was also a member of the Catholic Daughters.

During her leisure time, Elizabeth enjoyed crocheting, ceramics, and making a bi-annual pilgrimage to Kansas to visit her family. She leaves two sons, Michael J. Sidorowicz and his wife Nancy of Leonardtown, M.D., and James T. Sidorowicz of Manchester; a daughter, Mary Beth MacLeod and her husband Kenneth of East Bridgewater, Mass.; a sister, Georgia Coons of Salina, Kansas; three adored grandchildren, Amber MacLeod, Daniel Sidorowicz, and Kathleen Lewis as well as many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, Elizabeth was predeceased by a brother, Gerard Lecuyer; and two sisters Mary Ann Ryan and Marcella Kovanda.

Private services will be held at the convenience of her family and in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, P.O. Box 62596, Baltimore, M.D. 21264-2596, www.nami.org and to L-Dub's Love, Inc., P.O. Box 2, Gaithersburg, MD 20877-0002.
