For years, Eva Jasiekiewicz has proclaimed that she is “ready for the boneyard”! In recent months, she has prayed that she would be able to join her beloved husband Joseph Jasiekiewicz, her son John Jasiekiewicz, and her granddaughter Lacey Jasiekiewicz in heaven. She also hoped she would be able to join her “buddy” Lorraine for another asti spumante and orange juice. On September 16, 2023, her prayers were answered.
Eva Auger came into the world on April 4, 1930 and was the eldest of Oscar and Helen Auger’s two daughters, Patricia would come several years later. Despite growing up in the midst of the Great Depression, Eva enjoyed her childhood and years later recalled how she would spend hours playing with a miniature dish set that she kept in her mother’s hutch, swimming, and listening to records. Eva’s love of records and dancing ultimately lead her to the man she would spend over 70 years of her life with. When Eva came of dating age, a friend tried to set her up on a blind date with Joseph Jasiekiewicz, a WW2 veteran and autobody man who was nicknamed “Sinatra” because of his fantastic hair and amazing dance moves. Being a young, fickle girl, Eva stood Joe up on their first date. However, the fates would bring them together at a dance at the Polish Hall in Gilbertville, MA and the rest was history (although Joe spent the rest of his life joking that she should “have never gone back to that Polish Hall”). The two married, settled in the Gilbertville section of Hardick and raised three sons- Michael, Mark, and John.
In many ways, Eva was a woman ahead of her time. While many women of her generation were bound by society to focus solely on hearth and home, Eva went into the workforce to help support her family. For over thirty years, Eva dedicated herself to working with individuals with special needs; first at Belchertown State School, and later at a group home run by the state where she was a supervisor until she retired at the age of 70. Eva loved the students, residents, and other employees that she had the opportunity to work with and lovingly told stories about them up until she died. Of all the things that she did in her life, Eva claimed to be the most proud of the fact that she raised three sons and five granddaughters that were not afraid of hard work. This quality was most certainly something that all of them acquired as a result of her example.
Eva’s quick wit and sharp tongue will be greatly missed. Eva leaves behind her sons- Mike Jasik of Ware and Mark Jasik and his wife Joyce of Monson, and daughter-in-law, Lisa Jasiekiewicz-Zearfoss . “Babcia Eva” will be fondly remembered by her granddaughters- Alicia Jasiekiewicz, Amanda (Jasiekiewicz) Dusza, Kimberly Jasik, and Jennifer (Jasik) Valentino. Eva’s spirit will live on in her great grandchildren- Lukasz Dusza, Zofia Dusza, and Lorenzo Valentino.
Eva will be interred alongside her husband Joe at St. Aloysius cemetery. A graveside service will be held for family and friends at a later date.
