  • Linda Cabaniss Mrs. P welcomed me into the family from the very start. This meant I got my own cereal bowl set out for the morning, I was expected to wipe down the shower after using it, and, if I was good, I could pick out a frozen Entemann's to take home! I will never forget the haircuts I would give her out back, sitting in the lawn chair, or the visits to her and Mr. P at 72 Willey Lane. She was the kindest woman I have ever known, and one who lived what she preached and expected the same from those around her. Her eyes always sparkled as she told a story, and her laugh made me smile. RIP sweet Ruth. The world is a little less brighter now 😥
  • Jane Mayer I remember meeting Ray and Ruth when they first came to Holy Cross. I introduced myself and encouraged them both to "get involved" at Church. They both must have thought, Who is this crazy lady? Oh the jokes Ray would tell and the laughs we all shared.....I was so very shocked to have heard of Ruth's death. She was one very special Lady and I will miss seeing her sparkling face everyday at Mass. She was one of "Our regulars". Now she will be watching over us as we keep her in our thoughts and prayers. RIP Dear Friend, rip....jane
  • Kim Foy My thoughts and prayers are with the Palczynski family. I never had the opportunity to meet Ruth. I am a friend of Tessie's and know that she must have been brought up by wonderful parents because she is one of the most kind and helpful people I know. May your family find peace and comfort with the memories you all share of your sweet mom.
  • Clark D Burner "Mrs. P" - first met her and the family many years ago. Mrs. P always had that twinkle in her eye, a keen wit, and a wonderfully warm laugh. She epitomized and lived what I thought family (O'hana) was all about. With her reverent heart and soul, she cared about everyone - all the time. With absolute graciousness and class. She made all feel - a part of the Palczynski family. You are loved - and missed! The trade winds are lightly blowing with a nice Hawaiian sunset. Aloha, Mrs. P! The LOVE of God enfolds us... "...Ka mana o ke akua e ho'opakele mai ia kakou…"

  • Melina Nicolatus The last photo I saw of Ruth was a couple of weeks ago. Tess sent it to me. Ruth's eyes were twinkling and her smile was incredible. She was always a happy and very gracious person. Her life was rich and full of children, grandchildren and greats who adored her. Tess had a fun story about Ruth almost every time that we would get together and I feel so blessed that I was able to know Ruth. She's the best example of loving kindness and patience. I'm sending all my love and a huge hug to Tessie, Mar and all of the family.
  • Tessie Mom, so glad you can finally rest and be with dad. This world will not be the same without you. You made a positive inpact on everybody you met. You never complained or raised your voice. As dad used to say “you would t say shit if you had a mouthful” but you always said the right this at the right time. You were truly the most Christ-like person I ever met. You will always remain the wi d beneath my wings. The family you and dad raised will live on in love and will strive to live heathy, loving lives of service filled with the love and compassion you showed to all. I have no words to express how spending the last day of your life here on earth has forever changed me deep with in my heart. You were loved by so many and you loved and saw the good in everybody. You finally got you wish to really go home and live in eternal peace. “ I can only imagine...” I love you. Tessie
