Obituary of Anne Drapalski

 

LITTLE FALLS – On May 25, 2018, Anne Drapalski, beloved wife of the late Frank Drapalski, went peacefully to the Lord from home at 71 Prospect Street.

 

Anne was the daughter of the late Ignatz and Wladyslawa (Borowska) Gray (Grzywaczewski) born in Little Falls on March 29, 1920. She married Frank J. Drapalski on June 26, 1938. They worked in the meat market and grocery business and Polka dancing was a favorite hobby of theirs. Anne is best remembered for being a devoted wife and loving mother and grandmother.
