Obituary For Alice W. Korzeniowski
Alice W. (Ryan) Korzeniowski, 93, died peacefully on June 30, 2021 at Queen Anne Nursing Home in Hingham after living in Rockland for 60 years. Born in Boston to William A. Ryan and Alice (McManamy) Ryan, she was raised primarily in South Boston.
Alice graduated from Dorchester High School and worked in the Boston Navy Yard during World War II. She was a recipient of the Rosie the Riveter certificate.
Decades later Alice matriculated to Stonehill College where she earned a Bachelors’ Degree and then to Northeastern University where she earned a Masters’ Degree. She worked as a Social Worker for Catholic Charities and subsequently the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Social Services where she was a zealous advocate for abused and at risk children.
A devout Catholic, Alice exemplified unconditional maternal love. She rejoiced in her large family and was a fount of affection, devotion, and inspiration for her progeny. She cherished summers spent camping at Bourne Scenic Park and her retirement years in Florida in the company of her husband of 66 years and best friend, Charles “Charlie” J. Korzeniowski, Sr., until he passed in 2014.
Alice loved to travel and visited many foreign lands. She enjoyed playing cards with family, especially on holidays, and was known to take trips, both domestic and abroad, to participate in games of chance.
She was a devoted viewer of the Catholic Channel. However, friends and family knew better than to try and reach her by phone during Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune.
Alice was pre-deceased in death by her husband Charles J. Korzeniowski, Sr. and her son Charles J. Korzeniowski, Jr. She is survived by Charles J. Korzeniowski, Jr.’s wife Sa-Ardip Korzeniowski of Abington, Carol A. Dupuis and her husband Paul of FL, Francie M. Borges and her husband Edward of Rockland, Janet T. Loughlin and her husband John of Norwell, William E. Korzeniowski and his wife Charla of FL, Walter J. Korzeniowski and his wife Gloria of Bridgewater, Julie Carroll of Rockland, and John F. Korzeniowski and his wife Linda of FL. She was the sister of the late Francis A. Ryan, James Ryan, Robert V. Ryan, and William A. Ryan. Also surviving her are grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great great grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.
