WATERFORD Genowefa Blizinski, 85, of Morgan Lane passed away Tuesday June 2, 2020 surrounded by her loving family at her daughter’s home. Born and educated in Poland she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Anna Biel. She came to this country in 1966 and settled in Cohoes, later moving to Waterford in 1986. Genowefa loved listening to Polka music and attending Polka dances. In her spare time, she liked gardening and making special Polish dishes that everyone enjoyed. She was the glue that held the family together.

Genowefa was employed for over 30 years at Swanknit Inc. in Cohoes retiring 25 years ago. She was a communicant of St. Michael’s Church in Cohoes and a member of the Rosary Society there. She was a former member of the Polish Community Center in Albany.

She is the widow of Aleksander Blizinski who died in 1990. She is the mother of Sophie Bobek (Stanley) of Cohoes, Luska LeDuc (John) of North Carolina, Christine White (Kenneth) of Cohoes, Theodore Blizinski (Kimberley) of Latham and Alexander Blizinski (Jean) of Wynantskill. She is predeceased by her brothers William and Stanley Biel. She is the proud grandmother of 12 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. Several nieces and nephews also survive.

A special Thank You to daughter Christine and granddaughter Jennifer for the loving care they provided to Genowefa during her final weeks.

Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family. Interment will be in St. Michael’s Cemetery, Waterford.
