Obituary

Stowe, VT - Kathleen Rajki, 86, passed away December 23, 2020, at the McClure Miller Respite House in Colchester, Vermont.

Kathleen was born on October 19, 1934, in Derrydoon, County Fermanagh, Ireland to Bernard and Kate McDonald.

Kathleen left Ireland at age 16 to work in England. In 1956 she emigrated to New York City, where she met and married Frank Rajki, from Hungary. They began married life at Fort Bragg, NC and returned to New York in 1961. Kathleen raised three children in Sunnyside, worked in NYC as a bookkeeper until 9/11, and then retired to Vermont. In Stowe she quickly became involved in service to the West Branch community. Throughout her life, she volunteered wherever there was a need, whether it was at the school library or Bingo at Queen of Angels in Sunnyside, or at the senior luncheons at the West Branch Apartments in Stowe. Kathleen was an avid knitter, crossword puzzle-solver, and jokester.


She leaves her daughters Elsa and husband Joseph Myers, Trudy and husband Peter Dumas, and son Frank Rajki, Jr. grandson Joseph Myers, Jr., sisters Rita O’Hagan and Bernadette “Detta” Hanlon, cousins Patricia, Dympna, Yvonne, Eamon and Eugene Woods and many nieces, nephews and cousins.


Kathleen is predeceased by her sisters Roseanne, Mary Theresa and brothers John, Phillip, and Barney; her granddaughter Mary Kathryn Myers; and cousin Mary and husband Tommy Woods, and their son Malachy Woods.


The family thanks Heidi Scheuermann for her friendship, and would like to express sincere gratitude to nurse Christina and the staff at the Respite House whose dedication is unparalleled. They truly are angels.


Memorial Service will be held at Blessed Sacrament Church, Mountain Road, Stowe, Vt at a time to be announced. A Mass of Christian Burial will be Celebrated at Queen of Angels Church, 44-04 Skillman Avenue, Sunnyside, NY 11104 on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at 9:45 a.m. Burial will follow at St. John’s Cemetery, 80-01 Metropolitan Avenue, Middle Village, New York 11379.

Memorial contributions in Kathleen’s memory may be made to the Vermont Food Bank and the McClure Miller Respite House, a division of the University of Vermont Medical Center.

I have known Kathleen since I was a child. I remember how sad I was when she decided to leave Ireland and go to London. When we caught up again in later life, Kathleen was just as warm and friendly as I remembered. She was lively with a good sense of fun. She was truly young at heart. She lived life to the full. My condolences to Elsa and all the family.

Mrs. Rajki was a wonderful lady. She was funny and easy-going. I remember her watching us kids while we played in the "kitchen-go-out" ( Ah, childhood memories,) I remember her profitable bet with Mr. Rajki and her great laugh. Mrs. Rajki was easy to talk to, raised three beautiful kids and will be missed. Rest in Peace beautiful lady.

Love,
Mary Sparling Lange
