Margaret (Abramoske ) Lasota was born November 1, 1929, in Huntington, Long Island, New York, to William and Camilla (Perkowski) Abramoske. She was known to everyone as Peggy. She was raised on the family farm in Melville, Long Island, and attended St. Killian's Catholic School and Farmingdale High School. After her education she worked for the telephone company. She met Stanley Lasota on a blind date and they were married on November 3, 1956, at St. Killian's Catholic Church. After marriage they lived primarily in Bristol, Connecticut. When the kids were grown, Peggy worked at the St. Paul Catholic High School Cafeteria and taught bowling on Saturdays. She also worked for several years in the print industry as a binder, retiring in 1991. Peggy and Stanley moved to Northfield in May 2010.
Peggy was a longtime member of St. Gregory's Catholic Church in Bristol. She was a great bowler in her day and bowled in many leagues, carrying a 178 average. Watching baseball was her favorite pastime and she was a great fan of the NY Mets and Dodgers-- she still missed those Brooklyn Dodgers. Peggy was a very enthusiastic fan of UCONN Huskies Girls' Basketball and never missed a game on TV. Peggy was always ready to sit on the floor and play a game of Monopoly with her grandchildren, and do football picks with her grandsons. And at Christmastime, we all eagerly awaited for our package of her delicious rum balls to arrive! After her move to Northfield, Peggy thoroughly enjoyed the social activities with her new friends at Three Links, including Bingo, Pokeno, and coffees with the girls. She was kind, enjoyed being with people, and was a good wife and mother who adored her family and grandchildren.
Survivors include her husband of 54 years, Stanley; 2 daughters and their husbands: Mary and Scott Frazier of Northfield, Teresa and Scott Ingersoll of South Windsor, Connecticut; 5 grandchildren: Bill (Laura) Frazier of Newmarket, England; Katie Frazier of Grand Forks, North Dakota; John Frazier of Bemidji, MInnesota; Melissa Shanahan of New Britain, CT; Jessica Ingersoll of South Windsor; one step-granddaughter, Genesis Ingersoll of Washington, DC; 3 sisters: Edwina Nystrom of Huntington, New York, Dolly (Robby) Hartmann of Riverhead, New York, Marilyn (Dennis) Ferguson of Sunset Beach, North Carolina; nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents.
Following a brief illness, Peggy passed away with her husband by her side on Friday morning, May 13, 2011, at the Reflections Care Suites on the Three Links Campus in Northfield, at the age of 81.
