Lorraine Betty Cepaniewski, 89, wife of the late Edward “Deak” Cepaniewski, died on Friday, February 14, 2020 peacefully at home after a brief illness. Born in Meriden on September 4, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Makary and Elena Targonsky. She had resided in Meriden and had graduated from Meriden High School in 1948. Mrs. Cepaniewski was employed by New Departure in Meriden, St. Stanislaus School while her children were young and then JC Penny’s for over 20 years. She was a parishioner of St. Stanislaus Church in Meriden.

Lorraine lived her life being passionate about her family, cooking, heritage and had the most amazing green thumb. There was not a person who met her who would not describe her as sassy with a great sense of humor. She lived her life believing rules were meant to be broken. Lorraine’s biggest passion in life was caring for her family. She was a loving wife and mother. She always worried about her kids, even though we were grown. Her dedication and love of family will stay with us always.

Lorraine had many “adopted children” over the years as well. She was mom to each and every one of them in every sense of the word. She is survived by her daughter, Christine Laughorne and her husband Brent Laughorne of Roanoke, VA; her son, James E. Cepaniewski and his wife Tracy Borzillo of Farmington, CT; her four grandchildren, John Maguire and Ryan Maguire, Amy Kureczka, Holly A. Minnick and her husband Joshua; her four great grandchildren, Brinley A. Minnick, Hazel G. Minnick, Ashlyn H. Kureczka, Dillon A. Kureczka; one special niece, Jill Zadar; and her devoted caregiver Carol Zona. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews and by several grand nieces and grand nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 57 years, Edward Cepaniewski; her parents; her four brothers, Paul, Tony, William and Macarius; and her two sisters, Helen and Catherine.

Family and friends are invited to attend a funeral service to be held at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main St., Meriden, on Monday, February 17, 2020 at 11 a.m. Burial will follow in St. Stanislaus Cemetery. Family and friends may call at the funeral home prior to the service on Monday from 9 to 11 a.m.
