Mildred T. Bubniak, 94, formerly of Lodge Street Amsterdam, passed into the hands of God on Thursday morning July 18, 2013 at River Ridge Living Center.

Born in Schenectady on August 13, 1918, Mom was the daughter of the late Jozef and Franciszka (Buzanowska) Bonczyk.

Whilst her children grew up and for years after, Ma always seemed to have some sort of employment, notable of which were stints in the '70s and '80s for NYS Tax, Eddy Brush, and the one she like the best, Coleco.

Ma was a parishioner of St. Stanislaus Church and a past 'Madame President,' (with a gavel she kept) of the Rosary Society. Years ago, she was a part of the celebrated local Paderewski Choir.

On November 6, 1937 she was married to Dad, Adam Bubniak, at St. Adalbert's Church in Schenectady. Dad died July 14, 2008, just past their 70th wedding anniversary. Two very different personalities, but more on that later.

Ma is survived by four sons; Robert of Syracuse, Gerald (Susan) of Northville, Michael (Sophie) of Amsterdam, and Timothy of Amsterdam; ten grandchildren; Greg (Kathy), Jesse (Tina), Christopher, Rebecca Pratt (Leon), Matthew, Benjamin, Jessica Retersdorf (Adam), Nicholas, Brian, and Danielle; six great- grandchildren, Thomas, Patrick, Nathan, Alyssa, Grace, and Hannah. She is survived a brother, Ed (Ceil) of Florida, noted Schenectady hoop player back in the day as well as nieces and nephews.

Ma was predeceased by sisters Mary Novak (Ed), Bernice Malinowski (Joe); brothers Stanley (aka Uncle Chief) (Catherine), Joe (aka Uncle Smokey) (Reggie), Stephen (Antoinette), and William (Alice).

To say the least, Ma was an assertive personality, while Dad was not so much. Somehow for 70 plus years it worked, although it was not always easy. Four sons were produced who did more than OK. Some of the credit, indeed, must go to them, from Dad a calm nature; from Mom a certain mental toughness, two good qualities. Thanks Dad, Thanks Mom.

Funeral services will be held on Monday at 8:30 am at the Amsterdam Funeral Chapel 13 Belmont Place Amsterdam followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 9 am at St. Stanislaus Church 50 Cornell Street with Rev. Robert DeMartinis as celebrant.

Calling hours will be held Sunday, July 21, 2013 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the funeral chapel with Rosary Society meeting at 2:15 p.m. for a prayer service.

Interment will be in St. Stanislaus Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to St. Stanislaus Church or to the Salvation Army.
