Anna Louise (Donnelly) Stankis, 89, widow of Joseph Stankis, passed into eternal rest on July 4, 2017. She was predeceased by a sister, Rita Kindl. Her youngest sister, Joan Donnelly, resides in Rocky Hill.

Four grandchildren, Kyle Hackney and Nicole of Fairfield, Matthew Hackney and Taylor of Shelton, Breanna Czenczelewski of Santa Barbara, CA, Derek Czenczelewski of Bristol and three great-grandchildren, Jake, Stella and Mason.

Louise worked for 19 years at Sage-Allen West Farms Mall as a Children’s Dept. Manager until retiring in 1993. She was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Church and its Ladies Guild. She enjoyed traveling to Maine with her dear friend, Rita Dubois, as well as duckpin bowling, shopping and spending time with her family. Her Jello molds and potato salads were hands down the best!
