Antoinette M. Bojarski
Antoinette M. Bojarski, age 90, died on Saturday morning, January 28, 2012 in Newport News, Virginia. Antoinette was born in Cleveland, Ohio on September 11, 1921 to Italian immigrant parents, the late Giovanni and Rose Pinzarroni. On February 2, 1946, she married Edward Bojarski, a naval officer with the Medical Corp. The two traveled and lived throughout the United States while her husband was stationed at several west coast naval bases including Pearl Harbor during World War II and later during the Korean War.
Antoinette held many different jobs during her life and whether it was organizing fundraisers for the war efforts in San Diego, California, cooking for monks at a Catholic monastery in Portland, Oregon, or presiding over the League of Women Voters in Jacksonville, Florida, she loved helping people and staying busy. In the late 1960's, she and her family moved to Delaware. Antoinette had one son, Steven. She worked for the University of Delaware for twenty years before retiring in 1988.
Antoinette was devoted to her family; she was a wonderful homemaker who loved cooking, baking, gardening, and entertaining friends. She was an avid reader and played the piano. Later in life her most cherished and only granddaughter, Dominique, was born and brought Antoinette much joy. Antoinette was a devout Catholic and a longtime member of Our Lady of Fatima in New Castle, Delaware.
Antoinette is survived by her son, Dr. Steven Bojarski and his wife, Laura (Atwell), and their daughter, Dominique; two sisters, Jean Esposito of Wycliffe, Ohio, and Josephine Martin of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward Bojarski; two brothers, Carl and Frank Pinzarroni; and sister, Mary Barricelli.
The family would like to thank the staff at Governor's Inn Assisted Living in Newport News, Virginia, and the staff of Heartland Hospice, Newport News, for the loving care they showed to Antoinette those last few months of her life.
