Helen T. Gajeski

Helen T. Gajeski of Laurel died May 21, 2016, at Kanas Center for Hospice Care in Quiogue. She was 88 years old.

She was born in Southampton July 13, 1927, to William and Olga (née Kazel) Dull and later married Felix Gajeski. They were married for 56 years until his passing on April 29, 2006.

Together they made their home in Laurel where she assisted her husband in farming. Family members said she could clean shallots faster than anyone.

Helen was a communicant of Our Lady of Ostrabrama R.C. Church in Cutchogue where she faithfully attended the 5:30 p.m. Saturday evening mass and was described as a very prayerful woman.

She also enjoyed cooking – especially pierogis and turkey stuffing. Above all was her love of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her sons Felix “Babe” Gajeski, Jr. (Gwen) of Northville and Bill of Laurel; three grandsons Brian (Deborah), Gary (Sarah) and Keith (Kerri) and six great-grandchildren Autumn, Brooke, Emberly, Abigail, Allanah and Gavin.

The Liturgy of Christian Burial was celebrated May 24, at Our Lady of Ostrabrama R.C. Church in Cutchgoue, officiated by Father Mariusz Gorazd. Interment followed at Sacred Heart R.C. Cemetery in Cutchogue.

In lieu of flowers, donations to East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, NY 11978, would be appreciated.
