Krygier, Patricia A.

Bay City, Michigan


          Our loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away in the afternoon hours of Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at the McLaren Bay Region Hospital in Bay City, Michigan. Age 85 years. Patricia was born on March 4, 1934 in Bay City, Michigan to the late Chester and Antoinette (Nalazek) Bukowski. She was a member of All Saints Parish – St. James Church. While her children were young, Patricia played the role as a stay at home mother and worked part time for a company that would cater weddings.  Later on in life she worked for Created for Caring and Cat’s Meow. With Patricia’s active and busy schedule, she was still able to provide extraordinary care to her disabled daughter. Her friends and family will never forget about her passion and skill of cooking. Patricia always went out of her way to cook meals for friends and families in need. One of her favorite hobbies was completing crossword puzzles. Her family wishes they had some of her luck; Patricia was well known for her luck of winning on lottery tickets. Patricia will be missed dearly by all of her family and friends.

          Left to cherish her memories are her three loving children, Pamela Krygier, Kathy (Jerry) Babinski, and Michael (Lori) Krygier; three beloved grandchildren, Alyssa Babinski, Shayla Krygier, and Collin Krygier; sisters-in-law, Geraldine Bukowski, Emily Krygier, and Helen Krygier; brother-in-law, Clarence Krygier; special friend and cousin, Irene Melby; special friends, Linda Jaenicke, Phobe Dombrowski, Karen Krygier, Barb Ciszek, Mary Fisher, and Rose Castaneda; special friends and neighbors, Marty and Jeff; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. After a period of separation, Patricia is finally reunited with her parents, Chester and Antoinette (Nalazek) Bukowski; two brothers, Leonard and Arthur Bukowksi; and many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

      The Krygier family would like to thank Dr. Alexandria Smits and her staff for their compassionate and excellent care of Patricia.
