Mildred M. Rakowski

Mildred "Millie" Rakowski, 94, of Glastonbury, died peacefully Thursday July 21, 2022. Born May 9, 1928 in Bristol, she was the youngest daughter of the late William and Christine Meade and had lived in Glastonbury since 1963. Predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Edward Rakowski, she is survived by her 3 children and their spouses; Philip and Vanessa Rakowski of Somers, Suzanne and Kris Aberg of Glastonbury, Steven and Kate Rakowski of Colchester and 5 grandchildren; Max and Joy Aberg, Matthew, Kevin and Dillon Rakowski. As a young woman she loved driving around in her convertible, playing golf with her friends and was proud of the secretarial career she held before raising her family. Millie enjoyed arts and antiques by adding to her various collections and creating beautiful landscape oil paintings; she enjoyed books, movies and a glass of her favorite wine. However, she often let it be known that it was her children and grandchildren who brought her the greatest joy. Friends may call at the Mulryan Funeral Home, 725 Hebron Ave., Glastonbury on Thursday, Aug. 4 from 3 - 6 pm. In lieu of flowers please donate to Connecticut Foodshare.
