She will be greatly missed by her nephews, David Dymek, Ronald Dymek, John Piantek, Andrew Himmen and Michael Himmen and nieces Fran Alix, Trish Sedmak, Dorothy Scytkowski, Joanne Hurtung and Katherine Haas. Special thanks to all the staff of Mount Saint Vincent Nursing Home in Holyoke, who took such wonderful care of Ronnie.
