Obituary for Janet Paprota

BROOKLYN - Janet Paprota, 77, of Brooklyn, CT passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Westview Health Care Center on Monday, July 29th.

The daughter of the late William Earl and Ona Sadauskas Wright, Janet was born September 28, 1941 in Northampton, MA. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Walter; by her son, John; and her brother Donald Wright.

Janet leaves her son Steven Paprota of Davidsonville, MD; her son Michael Paprota and wife Kathleen of Brooklyn, CT; her daughter Lynn Collins and husband David of Brooklyn, CT; and her daughter Susan Tischofer and husband Michael of Coventry, CT. She is also survived by six grandchildren whom she loved dearly: Joshua Paprota, Justin Paprota, Jesse Paprota (and wife Josephine), Ryan Perreault (and wife Cassandra), Nicholas Perreault, and Vanessa Tischofer; two great grandchildren Jayden and Jane Paprota.

Janet held various jobs throughout her lifetime but her main focus in life first and foremost was always her family and to be a devoted caregiver. Her husband’s longtime US Air Force career afforded her the opportunity to travel extensively. They continued to make traveling a priority throughout their later years and this was something that Janet always looked forward to doing.

Janet loved spending time doing arts and crafts including sewing, knitting, crocheting, stained glass, and painting to name a few. She thoroughly enjoyed genealogy and sharing what she learned with family. Janet was an avid animal lover and had many cherished pets throughout her life. She also loved caring for wildlife, especially birds, bunnies, deer, and squirrels.

A calling hour will be held Friday, August 2, 2019 from 8:30-9:30AM in Tillinghast Funeral Home, 433 Main Street, Danielson, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 AM at Our Lady of LaSalette Church, 25 Providence Road, Brooklyn, CT. A luncheon will be held immediately following the services.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to your local animal shelter as Janet loved animals or a donation in her name to support ocean clean up efforts as she loved spending time at the ocean.
