Longtime Staten Islander Mildred Pikulski, 91, of New Brighton, the loving matriarch of three generations, died Monday in Ocala, Florida, where she was visiting her daughter.

Born Michaelina Yastremski in Newark, she was brought to Chernobyl, Ukraine, as an infant. In 1937, her parents sent her and her sister to Brooklyn, hoping they could help other family members immigrate to the United States.

She and Zygmund Pikulski wed in 1942, and the couple settled in New Brighton.

Mrs. Pikulski worked for a number of Staten Island businesses, including Gold Seal Ice Cream, Borden's Ice Cream, and Wood Art.

She retired in 1986 from Staten Island University Hospital, where she was often called upon to be a translator for her fluency in five languages.

Mrs. Pikulski cherished time spent with her family and friends.

She loved cooking traditional Ukrainian and Polish meals, gardening and maintaining her home. In her younger years, she enjoyed bowling in several local leagues.

Zygmund, her husband of thirty years, died in 1972.

Surviving are her son, Richard; her daughter, Barbara Walla; her sister, Jeannie Fill; four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

The funeral will be held on Saturday from the Casey Funeral Home, Castleton Corners, with a Mass at 10:00 a.m. in St. Peter's R.C. Church, New Brighton.
Burial will be in St. Peter's Cemetery, West Brighton.
