Meredith---Monica Nagot Michalsky, 91, passed away at the Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia, New Hampshire on December 14, 2006 of natural causes. Born in Stamford, CT on March 7, 1915, Mrs. Michalsky was the daughter of the late Casmir and Maria (Grabowski) Nagot.
Monica was a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT until a year ago when she moved with her family to Meredith, New Hampshire.
As a very young adult, she entered the convent of the Bernardines in Reading, PA where she taught English for many years. After leaving the convent, she worked at various jobs in Clairol Lab, Electrolux and war work at Electric Specialty. She soon met her future husband on a blind double-date arranged by her sister, Cecilia. She was married in Ft. Lewis, Washington and her next 64 years began by her following her husband around the U.S. from army camp to army camp until he went overseas in 1943 when she returned to Stamford to set up a home.
Monica was an expert seamstress, lace maker, crocheter and cross-stitcher. She loved to read, do crossword puzzles, care for plants, cook, but mostly she loved to be in her home.
Survivors include her husband of sixty-four years, Theodore “Ted” Michalsky, of Meredith; a son, Paul Michalsky, a daughter, Monica Michalsky, and son-in-law, Tom Stankosky, all of New Hampshire. She is also survived by her sister, Cecilia Brzoska, of Norwalk, CT and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by five brothers, Charlie, Stanley, Joe, Chippy and John Nagot, and by two sisters, Marion Cerulli and Alice Hojnacki. We all lost a very kind, gentle person today.
As she requested, her remains have been cremated. Burial and memorial services will be held at a later date in Connecticut. A brief blessing ceremony will be held in New Hampshire and Monica’s ashes will return home.
